50 years old and not tired of "playing" with Lego. Well that's normal here I guess? I live in a sleepy old town in The Netherlands with my two cats, loads of books, and a spare room filled with Lego.
I only collect Lego sets from the ancient times until 1980 (roughly) and also like to build the Technic models of later years. Recently I bought the biggest model I ever had: the Mercedes Benz Unimog (set 8110). A great model to build. Also in my collection is the mighty mobile crane MK II (set 42006). I'm not keeping all these models, a few years ago I sold almost every "modern" Technic model just to start again. It never stops I think.
Collecting the old sets is more fun then you might think. First it is the joy to find a box, a model, or even some bricks which you need. To complete the box with the original bricks and to search for those parts is always an adventure. And when I have all original parts, the box, instructions etc. of a particular set complete, I sit back with a good glas of beer and just enjoy it.
This is set 700/0 which I restored yesterday. The inserts were missing so I made new ones and with the inventory of Bricklink I filled it with all the original parts from 1956
Here a look of my oldest parts with the church of set 309 of 1958-1964 (and when ever I could find an, very rare, original box?), and some old trees and a "Lego Mursten" box filled with original bricks
Another set I recently completed: 700/6 (1961-1965). A few months ago I bought two original boxes with one original white insert. I made the black inserts and one white one and now I have two complete sets! Next step: to find an original black insert...
So, this is what I do when I'm not working, reading, enjoying my cats, etc.
