My Building Quirk - Does Anyone Else Do This?
So, when building I find myself making sure the LEGO logo on bricks, plates, etc. will appear aligned as much as possible. By this I mean if they can, I make sure in the final build has the logo upright or reading left to right.
Sometimes, this involves looking forward in the instructions several steps to see how that particular section goes into the final build.
Of course, many times this doesn't work out, as some pieces can only be applied in one direction. But for plates, bricks, etc. this can often be accomplished.
I mostly follow this "rule" of mine when pieces will have the stud exposed, but I also find myself doing it more and more with pieces that get buried in the build. It does add to the build time, but I still enjoy it.
Does anyone else do this?
