Another hello from Scotland!
I've been here on the forum for a few days but haven't introduced myself yet. I live in Edinburgh and have done for a lot of years - I played with Lego as a child when the most complicated parts they made were wheels! Fast forward to 2009 when my morning paper gave away some Star Wars mini sets, which I enjoyed building for nostalgia sake. That didn't draw me back in though, and neither did the Big Bang Living Room set when it came out a few years ago. What did it was the Saturn V, a magnificent beast. I've been a big space fan since I was a child (yes, I did try building rockets back then) and this made me want to look for more. The last straw was seeing a YouTube video of the Bucket Wheel Excavator, which I just couldn't resist. I justified it as my birthday present to myself and I've made myself wait until my birthday arrives before I open it. (Tomorrow, hooray!) I also fell in love with the big Mobile Crane, also after seeing it on YouTube, and managed to get a brand new set on eBay. That is on hold until my birthday too. And I've taken the decision to stop watching YouTube as it's costing me too much money!
