I have just finished my first lego build and I'm definitely hooked.
My first set is a 42065 , tracked racer.
It took me about 2.5 hours and I really enjoyed it. The instructions were easy to follow , although I made 1 mistake but it was easily rectified.
So I simply emptied the bags onto my desk , didn't bother trying to organize them in any way and dug through them to find the bits I needed for that step. Is this the best way ?
Finished it works well , although the dog doesn't seem keen :) .
I am going to do the alternative build too and am already eyeing 42064 Ocean Explorer for my next one.
