Hi from UK , thinking of getting my first set
Firstly thanks for approving my membership.
I've spent the last few years collecting Russian watches but feel its time for a new hobby , and I've been eyeing the Technic Lego sets for a while.
Looking around here and YouTube etc I've seen some amazing stuff , especially the way experienced builders adapt and change stuff , although I get lost how .
So its that time of year when my asks what to buy me. The 6x6 all terrain tow truck , set number 42070 , has become a firm favourite , looks good but not ridiculous money, I've been shocked at some prices.
So a couple of questions.
Is this set a good place to start?
As a complete beginner roughly how long to build ?
And one from my wife : Will you ever grow up ? No
Thanks for your attention and any advice.
