For some elements, I'm going to end up with a few spares...
Finished the first floor of the left hand side building. I feel the music shop could do with a bit more going on in it, so may MOC some extra bits once I've completed it.
Dance studio is tonights build I think.
Oh and your clock hands are out of sync... :)
#41309 Andrea's Musical Duet today. Yet agian, opened the box for a part, but had some fun with it. I ignored the instructions and built from the picture. That was a fun puzzle. I did have to zoom in in some cases to figure it out. I previously did that only with polybags, and I figure that might not work with sets much larger than this. I understand the instructions for less advanced builders, but I liked this better than rushing through the booklet.
I'm not interested in the heart charm made from 2 plate modified 3x2 with hole (part 3176), so I put those with the extras. Then again, I'm not the target market for Friends. The knob on the back of the guitar is great for a minidoll to hold perpendicular to the body.
Sometimes a bunch of separate tiny models in a set feels disjointed.
It feels a little small for a $10 set - at least it had a bird if not another minidoll.
I'm considering #41307 Olivia's Creative Lab from the same batch of sets, at least with discounts/promos.
@BillyBricks Have fun :)
Once my daughter was in bed I decided to do a bit more.....
A "bit" more turned into a few hours building. Assembly Square is now completed.
There are so many nice little touches, the music shop and dance studio could do with fleshing out a bit and the fountain is a bit basic, but once we've had a play with it for a bit the pavements will get pulled up and it'll end up on my Modular street with the others. Came back from work today and my daughter decided to start playing with it, all floors removed and various minifigures swapped round.
There was also a 6yr olds thought process...
"daddy, if you walked up the back stairs and jumped up and the windows on the top floor were open....you could see someone having a poo!"
EDIT: I've just realised you're using the 3x3 panels and bricks, not the 2x2 ones. That explains it...! :)
None of those sets I would have bought separately but as I had #8860 as a kid and I am currently waiting on a bricklink order to replace the missing parts to rebuild it I had to get the new version.
I haven't built a modern Tecnic set so was a eye opener to all the new parts and just how far away it was to the late 70's Technic sets I last built.
Really neat build with a 3 speed gearbox, 4 cylinder engine, working steering and movable seats.
Thanks for that journey it was fun.
If you've got MS Paint select 'Resize' on the 'Home' ribbon > You can then either reduce the % or pixel size via the Radio Button options > The 'Horizontal' and 'Vertical' fields are linked so you only need to amend one :-)
So do you use all parts of those 3 sets? Or would it be cheaper to bricklink the parts for this model? (I suspect not)
Not all the parts are used and most of the set specific parts aren't used.
Not knowing a lot about new technic, the only parts I would think you definitely require is the wheels an tyres from the telehandler (#4299389, #6055626) and the 3 moulded pieces that make up the bonnet (#6133243, #6176758) with two coming from the BMW and one from the helicopter.
All the rest look like generic pieces unless in specific colours.
I was going to Bricklink all the parts but the Telehander doest has a set inventory listed and end up getting all the sets at a great price.
We have about 10 inches of snow (20 cm) that has come down since last night and it's still snowing. So broke this out to rebuild and display...
SNAFU or why did a brick separator sneak into the picture?
The ground floor and first floor.
And a third picture of the back...
@flord impressive, love the pillars especially!
I've started on AS, always love floor-plans. Even managing to get the 1*1 plates straight by pushing them a teeny bit with a separator.
The two base-plates are slightly differently coloured though. But I guess that will be covered in the end anyway.
The main pos is the look robust and agressive. There are many PF in this set and the building is not very fun and interesting. That's pretty simple and a little repetitive at one moment but it's fun to play with.
However, not looking forward to the stickers blah.
