So in follow up to my previous post about the Lego Porsche 911 GT3 RS I have been fortunate enough to receive the gift of a Lego Bugatti Chiron thanks to the ever patient Octavia.
Again a massive box of Lego, and what looks to be amazing building experience, over the next few days I’m going to listen to the podcasts that accompany the build and hopefully at the weekend at least open the first bag of bits to get cracking on the build….
….not a fan of Lego, probably best to come back in a few weeks time when I might have posted about something else (maybe)
So here’s a tease….
So I was fortunate enough to receive an unexpected box of Lego goodness at the end of last week which just happened to contain the Porsche 911 GT3 RS. Which meant I spent “some” time over the weekend a) building it and b) explaining to the kids that this wasn’t Lego for them.
This should be a longer post about building the Porsche, but I’ll just let the photos of the build do the “talking” instead.
So having helped SBrick on Kickstarter I thought it was probably a good idea / excuse to pick up a powered Lego kit, so a quick hunt around Amazon turned up the 42030. A model of the Volvo L350F Wheel Loader.
So it took a few session and quite a few hours to build, certainly longer than the Camper Van I built last year, and for the first time ever there were two missing pieces, nothing vital but an annoyance none the less. Quickly hitting the Lego website got me to the replacement parts service. Amazing, enter the relevant details and pieces arrived free of charge within a week.
Anyway, the model is now complete as can be seen in the pictures and has been used a couple of times to tidy up tipped out Lego, the next step is to add in the SBrick and also a couple of lights that I have…. (then the key decision is what to build next)
