How do I know if I can build something?
So I was looking at the Backhoe Loader (8069) in a store and started wondering if I already had the pieces to build it. I looked up the instructions online, and I think there's at least some stuff (4562009 and 4612100 for those interested) that I don't have. (The newest relevant stuff I have is 8294 and 8265.) Now it took a while to go through, and the method mainly relied on me remembering what I had in my collection, so I was wondering if there was any easier way of doing this? After all, I might be missing a few copies of even a common part and not realize it until actually preparing to build the thing. In addition, how do I figure out which sets contain a given part? Ideally, I'd like to ask the computer if my collection (at Brickset) contains the needed parts to build a given set, or even show me the parts I'm missing. Of course this might require quite a bit of programming, so what's the next best thing? I thought I'd ask once I saw how impressively adept some of you are in identifying random parts from just a picture. :-)
Thanks in advance!
