    you should include total set cost of what you've build so far so we can get a break down of $ per hour on Quarantine entertainment expenses.

    @560Heliport you have no idea how happy these pictures of these old sets make me. I have a number of the later 80s early 90s sets but seeing full collections of Spyrius and Classic Space et. al. is so cool. Makes me want to open the sterilite bins and build them myself. Problem is I'm out of display space.

    #6268 Renegade Runner. The large flag on the stern was pretty yellowed, so I put it in hydrogen peroxide in the for a couple of hours, now it's nice and white again. But before treatment, it matched the sails! (The sails look a lot cleaner in the photo.) #6271 Imperial Flagship is next!

    Up to bag 8 on the Pirates of Barracuda bay set - this thing is huge!

    Clever how the second island half locks into the main body of the ship on the other half. The ship looks massive compared to some of the older ships above. Desperately need to put some shelving up to accommodate my newer sets (this and modular stuff).

    Took a trip back to 2015 and picked out #70735 - Ninjago Ronin R.E.X. from the stash of Possession sets I found unopened and forgotten at the back of the pile. 



    Fantastic little set with a beautiful colour scheme. 
    Some of the detail pieces are a bit fragile so not sure how well this set would have faired without losing bits with a child giving it some abuse but a fairly sturdy build apart from that.
    Also, my first Airjitzu Flyer. 
    Fun little thing that would annoy the boss immensely with persistent use so put that away fairly sharpish.
    A fair few nice parts in this set so looking forward to ripping it apart and trying to build something a bit sleeker.

    Been really getting into bricklink's stud.io digital designer program. Been great to return to some classic castle building (especially with parts that would be expensive to collect) and doesn't mess up the home office desk...


    I ended up making a few amends to this one after people on instagram tried to build it in real life. I've put the instructions on rebrickable for anyone who might be interested!

    Continuing to build existing Technic sets from collection, here's #42038 Arctic Truck- an odd set at best. Had to order a few parts & a few mods were necessary but overall I was underwhelmed. A couple saving graces were its optional motorization for the crane & dumping bed, & the seats are unintentionally somewhat scaled for minifigs. Oh & discovered I have a lighting kit!

    #75244 Tantive IV
    is done.

    time spent building the Tantive IV "6 hours and 1 minutes".
    Final time spent building the 20 set's from what i am now calling "Chrisalddin mad spending spree." is "52 hours and 20 minutes"

    Set's Built from "Chrisalddin mad spending spree." = 20.
    the only set left unbuilt are the GWP set's i got.

    2 days 4 hours and 20 minutes (give or take 10 or so minutes from rounding) sepent building.
    if i had done that all in one go i A:- have no fingers left. and B:- half killed my self. but i am done, and now i can just lay back on my bed, place my "Rift S" on my head and play Elite in VR :) <-- there ia a joke threr can you see it. ;P

    hmm i think i started to plan all this back around a month ago (30 days) it been a fun mouth. and the new set's look grate on display. and i had a lot of enjoyment building them all.

    odd's are now i will go back to my brickset forum lurking :)

    Its been a busy time in my household, since building #21322 Pirates of Barracuda Bay in the middle of April I haven't really had much chance to get my hands on bricks apart from helping my eldest build some of his Ninjago sets! So its a relief to finally get to build once again today as I put together #75277 Boba Fett during a quiet moment.



    Hopefully get a couple more sets out of storage tomorrow if its quiet again!

    There are some CMF visitors in camp.
    I often put CMFs with sets that have the same theme. S16 Hiker with Friends Adventure Camp, S15 Frightening Knight/Queen S16 Rogue S17 Highwayman/Elf Girl S19 Fright Knight Disney S2 Hercules with Castle, S19 Dog Sitter and the duck from shower guy with animal figs, S16 Bald Pirate with Pirates, groups of food or musician CMFs
    Similar with the various figs/models in people packs like #60134

    Did #30453 and #76127 awhile ago but just took pictures. Also put them on display with my non-LEGO Captain Marvel figures

    The ship looked awfully stubby in the pictures, not so much so when built

    I wondered where to stand the figures for display, they can fit on top of the wings

    I wish one could fit in the cockpit but it seems tight enough to only hold a fig without hairpiece or accessories.

    9503 is the code in my personal collection inventory. The bottom link is to a folder of my LEGO collection pics in general

    I've been adding little details to my modular street for a while, a bench here, some Marvel characters fighting on a rooftop there! Found this MOC on YT a while back and decided to build it. Parts came from France, TBH I'm a bit miffed with the BL seller, yes the parts were classed as used, but some were awful, scratched and one even locked a bit chewed! But I was able to hid the bad bits inside. Fired up Mrs Speedmans vinyl cutter and made some tiny letters to add detail, not perfect, but it was a right pain as the font is about 1mm wide and even using a pin it was so hard to get them all straight, but from a distance looking in its fine for me.

    I'm going to bag sets separately as I dismantle them. I made the mistake once of putting all of my Pirate sets (just about everything from 1989 to 1996, all the big sets, only missing a few of the smallest ones) together in one box. Do you realize how many black plates, for instance, are in that many Pirates sets? The next time I wanted to build them, I sorted by color, then had to sort the black pieces into 1x whatever plates, 2 x whatever plates, 1 x whatever bricks, etc. because small black pieces are very hard to spot in the shadows of other pieces. 

    I bag sets separately in storage and it does make organization easier. Thanks for a contray example. :)
    I generally don't disassemble completely, only enoguh for reasonably compact storage

    -

    Just started #21034 London. By started I mean dumped the parts bags onto my work table and did the first couple steps
    That skyline set is my first Architecture. If I like it I'll shop for #21045.
    As with Ideas sets, the book has a wonderful preface about the subject in addition to the build instructions themselves

    #21034 London is a really nice Skyline set, but #21045 Trafalgar Square, being a full building Architecture set, is a completely different beast entirely and far more complicated and detailed.
    If you like the first set, you'll love the second!

    80% of my 1981 Space sets... I have #6842, I just don't know where it is right now. Off on a scouting mission, apparently.
    I love #6822, the four jet engines underneath were so useful to a 1981 me for building spaceships.

    Built #80009 Pigsy's Food Truck last night ... an interesting build! Hard to tell in the photo but there are two of the bad guys on motorcycles not just the one it looks like. The whole build was interesting and although I am not a big fan of the weapons that fire finding them rather disappointing on the whole, the pig on top fires those red things beautifully. I had to hunt them down afterwards! Also got and built #75270 Obi-Wan's Hut, a much smaller build but also interesting. You can't see it in the picture below but there us an R2D2 minifig on past the Tusken raider on the right side.
    In the same shipment received and built the #853990 Easter House and the GWP #30369 Beach Buggy, small but fun to build. All in all a good purchase and received quickly as well!
