    Just rebuilt this set! I really love the design of the helicopter. I’ve had the set a while, but the parts have been scattered amongst my collection.. finally got around to finding them, and ended up having all the parts- only missing a few stickers. Now I am working on finding the parts to some of my Fantasy Era sets :)

    JK Brickworks Orrery... That's enought building for this month!


    Oh man, I would kill for an official model orrery, although the number of pieces it would take for more than one planet probably makes that impossible..  That one looks pretty awesome, I might have to look into doing it myself...

    This one was a fairly simple model to bricklink. Nothing too expensive in there.

    A few sets I've built over the past few days. I dismantled most of my sets when I moved house, now I get to enjoy building them again!

    This weekend I finished bag 2 of carousel #10257. I don't think I'll ever want to build anything round again.  I kept pushing too hard and collapsing parts of it.  I think I finally have it stabilized. The carousel goes around when I turn the handle, so I'm leaving it at that.

    Fun little build, perfect to end a crappy day (with thanks to @bandit778 - the build not the crappy day).

    @snowhitie - sorry to hear about the crappy day - sending psychic sunshine (sure isn't any real sunshine around right now)

    Last week I received my first big LEGO container for this year

    and it was quite a party this weekend at my place

    You would think I would be used to it by now, but the size of the larger Technic vehicles is always about 3 times larger than I expect.  I probably won't get the Mack Anthem unless I can find it like %60 off (way too many other new sets on my list to put another $180 dollar one on it too ;_; ) but that looks really good.

    I especially like the party scene that you've set up too.  Looks like a good way to spend a Monday.  Much better than how I spent mine, at least! :)

    The first time I saw a picture of the Bat-Shuttle, I just had to have it. I picked it up yesterday and wasn't disappointed. It's a fun build, good mini figure selection and accessories and the extra vehicles are a bonus(Bat Kayak)!

    I started working on the Detectives office a couple weeks ago. 

    Building time has been limited so I just started the third floor a couple days ago.

    I'm hoping that I'll be able to wrap it up this upcoming weekend.

    Finally got some time to continue and finished bag 1 last night. Got up early and started bag 2. This may seem odd, but this is going *faster* than I thought. The bags, so far, seem a little more intuitively packed than usual so I haven't had to spend as much time sorting pieces. I don't know that makes sense or not, but it seems that way to me

  • kbwkbw NCMember Posts: 364
    ^Now that I think about, there's just less variety of pieces than I'm used to seeing in the bags - a lot of the same stuff - so they are easier to find and less to sort imo. That may change

    This is a project I'm currently attempting. Now that I've built the big Falcon, I'm more likely to customize one of the smaller ones. I've already extended one of the mandibles and now I'm working on the cockpit.

    First time out of the box in two years. Nerve-racking' as ever! Getting ready for North Carolina LUG's Legopalooza this weekend at the UNC Planetarium.

    That’s some serious yellowing you’ve got there... :-)

    Bag 3 is done. Haven't started 4 but couldn't resist opening it up so I could get at those 2 handsome devils on the left.

    Could I make another call for people to put low resolution pictures on the forums?

    Love looking at all these pics but loading is getting difficult again. Feel free to add a hyperlink to a Flickr on the picture if you want, but please resize a bit.

    Couldn't agree more, and I have great broad band.

    If you prefer to use something a little less 'social media like' than Flickr, try Bricksafe
    It's free, well run, and easy to use.
    Just create your account, create a folder, upload your pics with drop & drag, click on the 'view 800x600' size, copy & paste the url into 'insert image' here when posting, and there you have it.

    I took this 2 minutes ago:

    (looks great, but was absolutely crap to build!!)

    Working on a spaceship. Not the Benny variety. Think more like a smuggler/cargo hauler-type craft. Mostly black, dark and light bley, with smatterings of neon baby blue. I'll share pictures when it is complete.

    Wrapped up the Detectives Office (10246) last night. 

    Super pleased with the build.  I left it on the kitchen table for my kids to see when they woke up.  They were definitely surprised to see it in the morning. 

    Though, after looking over the entire set, my youngest looked at me with a little bit of a sad look on her face and asked,"How come we didn't get to build this one with you daddy?"

    I had no answer, but I did promise that I would let them build with mo on the next set.

    I know brickheadz are a whole lot smaller, but my grandson mentioned just yesterday that he wanted to build the Hulk that I had built. I took it apart and we had great fun building it again. That's part of why I got back into LEGO, because you can build the same set more than once.

    I did similar with my tender, but adapted it so the motorised wheels went on that, plus hid all the electrics in it too, with a top and some 'coal'. It looks much better than having wires from the train to the tender, plus you can put the engine driver back where he is supposed to be. It means the tender pushes the train, rather than the train pulling it, but works perfectly. If anything it's slightly better as the extra weight over the motorised wheels stops some of the slippage that the wheels are prone to.

    School starts back tomorrow, but in the meantime I've spent most of today working on this. If I can finish it, it'll almost certainly be my largest MOC since I was a kid. Certainly my largest constraction MOC.

    Finally finished my second horizon express set and put them together. I posted a while back my new basement. I ended up going with the "L" shape table layout and will post the progress later.

    Ha ha, yeah.  I won't be doing that with that set.  lol.

    I've done that with a few sets of mine as well.  I've done a few rebuilds of some of my favorite classic space sets over the past few months.  The most challenging was rebuilding my Blacktron Invader.  Biggest challenge was tracking down the parts.  (Alot of pieces could go missing after 30 years) As luck would have it, I still had them all. 
    It was quite a build.  Its one thing to build a set out of the bags, but its quite a different experience hunting for every piece in a Rubbermaid bin with countless other sets mixed together.

    As far as the kids go, I've got plenty of project sets around the house I can build with them.  I've got a dozen or so sets in reserve and I think my youngest still has one of the Lego Friends houses that was a present from Christmas still in the box.  Its just a matter of finding the time to start one.
