First In-Bag Build!

I just completed my first in-bag build! It was the #30185 Little Eagle polybag (thanks again, @legogal!)

Probably not the easiest choice for a first build. It looks like most people start with vehicles in clear bags (maybe as part of larger sets), but I thought, "why not?" It was so very rewarding to snap the last leg onto the clip.

I think this forum is rubbing off on me, as my first thought was how chuffed I am, and "chuffed" isn't a word you ever really hear here in America :-)

    That's incredible.  I'd never thought of that.  Typically, my self-imposed "challenge" is to build the vehicle that comes with SW or Chima battle packs (or any small set) without using the instructions: just the picture on the box.  But this is rather impressive.  I've got to try this.

    That's chuffing great @ricecake!

    Building in the bag is always a good competition at AFOL events.

    How do you see the instructions?
  • ricecakericecake Member Posts: 878
    I worked from a PDF of the instructions.

    I was 1/2 joking, I just assumed you would have built one before.  I think you should have to spot the instructions through the tiny window.  Unfolding them would be the hardest part.

    Folding them back up once the model is built would be harder. :-)

    Is this still MISB (or MISP)?
    And if you open it are these bricks new or used?
  • ricecakericecake Member Posts: 878
    LOL we were joking about that here. Maybe UISP (used in sealed package)?

    ^^ And I think the bricks are new because they didn't get touched by our hands.

    Surely "used" because the studs etc. have suffered build stress?
  • MattsWhatMattsWhat Member Posts: 1,643
    If it's hand haven't touched (which I don't agree with) then I will build all my models with gloves on. Then despite being built and dismantled they are brand new!
    No,  I'm going with having had a stud inserted (or clipped etc) being the criteria. And as such I'm going to be calling them virgin bricks instead of new bricks.

    Because I thought it looked fun, I tried this!

    This was my first time and I really enjoyed it!
