Some day I'll do something similar.
Space? we cleared the kitchen table for the 25th as we had six of us for dinner, so there was loads of space to spread out! We saw family or friends probably half the days over Christmas, but that left lazy mornings and evenings to relax. Probably helps Little Miss Speedy is 11 now and amuses herself with her friends online gaming while whatsapping each other and Mrs Speedy has her crochet to keep her busy.
I do feel quite lucky though.
Trying to decide if I should make it Colonial Frontier or Wild West themed. Any preferences?
My vote would be for a Wild West theme.
For the angled building, I use a 16x brick and attach it on a 1x1 round stud to the base and then swing it around in a circle looking for connection points that match the angle I'm looking for. Once I find connections for the 16x brick/plate, then i look for connections at 90 degrees to that and then lay down some plates to test it out. Then I put tiles under the non-connection parts of the plates so they rest flat and have a strong connection.
Presumably somewhere later in the build there's some Assembly to hold it in, either from the top of the hips Assembly, or to peg it in from the bottom?
Clutch on some of the belly tube Assembly bits seemed really poor.
Anyone else experiencing the same?
I've just had a look through the electronic manuals as I haven't cracked open boxes 2, 3 and 4, the only thing that even looks like it would hold the back end of the tube section in is the bit on the back that meets up with the tube (like a tail bone - I forget the actual description) maybe once that is on, the drive assembly will hold itself up. I'm tempted to mod now to keep it up for the rest of the build, because right now it won't stay up when the hip assembly is sat the right way up.
I'm still confused at how the logs attach. On the left side, the logs to the left of the window must just be wedged in? Also the brick just to the right of the window on the left side, should it not have studs touching the window or what part have you used there?
Wondering why they didnt cover the white half-cyliders' seams using the 2 FUEL 4 SPEED Stickers- dont you want the seams hidden? (How I did it)
Ah yes! Looking at it again, you are right. The window pretty much looks the same if upright or on it sides.
Happy New Year!!!
Upgraded horns on Bullet Run limo. Go big or go home I always say-- he's a TX cattle baron after all 🐂🐃🐮
Very happy to add this one to the collection.
I just sourced it all on Brick Link as my dream of being able to drop £700 on the AT AT that weekend as a family man just didn't happen.
I had to look a few times here between steps 5 through 8.... Is it just me or is this printed twice. Super confusing at the time I have to admit.
Instructions are direct from Lego.co.uk so I had no other copy to compare it to.
I've been collecting Lego since 2014, this was the first big set I dreamed of someday owning.
It now sits proudly on my man cave display unit.
