Lego GBC Donahue in Red and Blue are builds of GBC Donahue, a simple and reliable chain lift module that was the the4 Brickworld workshop module.

These builds of this module are a blue and red variation with a couple of gearing and support changes to make it sturdier when transporting it around for shows.

Night Lighting

The modules are setup for night running as well.

They use my custom Lego UV/Led lights, with the UV shining on the balls and the Lego light passing through a trans-red/blue brick to color the module.


Videos of these modules in operation.


Lego GBC Donahue in Red and Blue packs into a single 24x18x10″/60x46x25cm  bespoke cardboard box.

They are also packed with Lego GBC Rainbow Lift and Lego GBC Reservoir Lift in Yellow.
