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)
