    Having put together #30449 The Milano, I think it's time to build its big brother!

    Once again, if you can guess what my next building is, you get a free internet hug. :)

    I've had some time in the past week to work on some building, so I decided to finally give in to the siren's song of those Ziploc bags filled with pieces and started the hall section of @KevBrickstruct 's booklet 3 for Helm's Deep.

    @BillyBricks84 - I was just preparing everything to start building part 3 this week too. Happy building!

    @Recce Did you get the actual sets or just build them from your own parts collection? It looks like if you were able to get all the sets then you also got a nice display base too!

    Is that a drive-up window on the side? But seriously, I have no idea, other than a nice house.

    I build with my own parts, the models only release 1 per week and now is week 2.

    And yes, if you collect all 5 of them starting from the first one, you can redeem the free grey coloured base. But that means need to make weekly purchase of at least S$80 for 5 weeks!

    Just completed bags 1 to 4 of the Saturn V. From what looks to be a ridiculously flimsy build to start, as the inner and outer parts of the fuselage come together, it looks to be surprisingly solid.

    Just finished bag 10 of Saturn V. That's a strong hold between sections 1 and 2 of the rocket when clipped together - I was sure I was going to break something when I separated them again.

    Did #31062 a few nights ago.
    I can sometimes build and watch TV, but by the time I finish other stuff I'm often tired enough to do one or the other.
    Started working on the huge MegaBloks Enterprise again two nights ago. Sorting and bagging the pieces did make it easier to contain the mess and find pieces, as I'd hoped.
    I don't have any more LEGO sets in my backlog; maybe I'll finally get to working on a MOC idea. Yet that will involve going through piece storage in my bedroom rather than taking a kit to the TV room.

    Have only been building minifigs as I'm finally getting around to removing the Super Heroes from their boxes. Haven't been able to open #6866 to get Deadpool out of there.
  • FauchFauch FranceMember Posts: 2,272
    first technic set in years and it seems to take a long time to build. ok, it's the claas xerion 5000. still, modulars didn't feel as long and yet it is surprisingly quick to find the pieces needed for the claas even though the build is divided in only 2 parts.

    I also think there is a problem with some pins which can be really hard to push in pin holes (or pull from), especially that small connector with a pin and a pin hole

    I'm actually also building #42054 CLAAS Tractor. And, @Fauch, I just said to my wife that it's surprisingmy easy to locate parts. Brought our son home from the NICU this morning so we can't venture far from the living room. Been looking forward to a huge, uninterrupted chunk of time to build it and the rest of the queue.

    Yeah speaking of that the file's bugged when I tired swapping around the Simpson's garage for this. Joy now I can't open it to make the interior. :(

    If anyone can open this LXF and delete the garage/debug it that'd be great because then all the work's for nothing.

    Veronica - Hulkbuster Armour Module (WIP)

    I started this concept back in 2015 and haven't touched it since, finally you can expect a full reveal on 5th July.

    Just finished the tractor part for #42054. The motorized cab rotating function doesn't seem to work. Anyone that's built it have any thoughts on what I missed?
  • sid3windrsid3windr BelgiumMember Posts: 1,349
    Un-building #8466 as I bought it second hand, built up. 2 parts were broken, while taking it apart at least one extra has broken. Hmm hmm.
  • FauchFauch FranceMember Posts: 2,272
    I'm not that far, but at least the turntable rotate when I turn the switch up or down.

    I think I had an error with gears and stuff inside not aligned the right way before building the switch, but it was quick to fix

    Finished this with my son last night. #3816 Glove World

    I bought a bin of Lego a few months back and this is set was scattered among the pieces. Only missing a couple of pieces that I was able to source from my son's collection. Also missing two mini-figs. Oh well! When I do the math on what else was in the box, this only ended up costing me ~$1. 

    Fun little build that my son greatly enjoys.

    Fixed my CLAAS Tractor. Was missing one of the black 12-tooth gears that connected the driveshaft to the gears that operated the cab. Of course, it was buried deep in the gearbox but luckily I didn't have to rip the entire thing apart. Very cool set. Looks great on my Technic shelf.

    I started the Wright Flyer #10124 the other day. It's bigger than I would have though and I only have the frame done so far.

    Surprisingly, I don't even have a few pieces of some parts! Plus had to search high and low for the parts I need in my messy house (if you've seen a photo of my house posted some time back you'll know) as they're either in some sets that are assembled or I need to find the sealed set and open it to get the parts.

    yeah, when you can build this, or th whole assembly square, not sure you can call your stock "limited"
  • sid3windrsid3windr BelgiumMember Posts: 1,349
    I regularly buy a few hundred, they're gone before you can say jiffy...

    Looks great!

    There are a lot of people with over 1 million bricks, I don't think I'll ever be anywhere near that. 

    The point of the post is to share what we're building, if there is concern on the specific words I'm using I apologise. 

    I'll try to phase my sentences carefully in future post. Thanks.

    ^ I don't think anyone is worried @Recce - I reckon there's a few smileys missing from some of the replies maybe? To me, it reads like you're being humorously self deprecating, fwiw... :-)

    #70911 TLBM Penguin Arctic Roller

    done with book 1 and I'm loving it. 
    I knew from the box, it was going to be a great build. 
    So far, so good!
  • Th1nDieselTh1nDiesel UKMember Posts: 521
    ^ I agree that the Artic Roller is a great set. I built it last week after receiving it as a Father's Day gift. An extra minifig would've been nice, given the RRP, but it's one of the nicest looking vehicles I own.

    I just finished building #70902 Catcycle Chase. The Minifigs are great and the bike is a nice build, but the shop front is a little lacking. I've decided to try and expand it with my first modular MOC; wish me luck!

    Thinking of breaking open the #60132 for a nice and quick build to add to my train/city layout.  Can never have enough Octan.

    After moving and having my Lego in storage for nearly 2 years, I'm finally starting to rebuild and reimagine my Lego city. I am trying to decide what to do with the tables. I have 2, and I can't decide to make two separate layouts (one being the main downtown and one focused on an amusement park and rural homes, or somehow combine the tables into one bigger layout. (That sheet of wood lays across the white table to create more area.) Thoughts?
