Do you build Lego models without using the instructions?
Hello! I was wondering how many other people like to build their new Lego sets like I do - as a Puzzle using only the photo on the front of the box as a guide?
It's my favorite way to build models which are ~500 pieces or less, generally Architecture sets. I enjoy the challenge of building the parts that I can see well by looking for clues such as the gaps between bricks, then having to guess how to put those parts together and how the backside of the model should look.
I just posted an article on my blog describing my process for building models without the directions. I would be very interested to who else does this, and hear what approaches or tricks you use.LINK: tomalphin.com/2013/10/lego-challenge-15-without-the-instructions.html(SPOILER ALERT: The blog shows details of how to build the now discontinued Architecture Series model of Sungnyemun, so be warned.)
