Apparently, the Toyota Land Cruiser 40 Series is something of an icon in Australia. It represents a certain toughness and ruggedness found in the outback – and, of particular note, is one of the safest vehicles around – making the perfect starter car for one Matthew Inman. Some years after his first car came and went, Inman has immortalized the model in an excruciatingly detailed iteration for LEGO Ideas. Because of its enormous sentimental value to Inman, the build is extremely detailed and features representation of everything from the diesel engine to the model’s interior. Check out a shot of the build above and head here to support Inman’s dream becoming a reality.

When you first step out of the terminal at John F. Kennedy International in New York City, one of your first impressions of the city is also one of its most solemn icons: the former Trans World Airlines Flight Center. Legendary Finnish-American architect Eero Saarinen designed the space between 1955 and 1962 – when the building was opened posthumously. At the time, the space was representative of the jet-set ideals of the time, a summary of the communal hopes and progressive dreams of a booming post-war economy. It’s interesting how history relates to now; the building in the context of 2015 looks a bit like a street photographer’s wet dream for its exaggerated symmetry, texture blocking and dramatic curves. Photographer Max Touhey delved inside the former structure on the eve of a recent 3D modeling session – conducted ahead of the terminal’s impending renovation into a boutique hotel. Check out the photo set above and be sure to leave thoughts on this sweeping structure below.
