And yes, if you collect all 5 of them starting from the first one, you can redeem the free grey coloured base. But that means need to make weekly purchase of at least S$80 for 5 weeks!
I can sometimes build and watch TV, but by the time I finish other stuff I'm often tired enough to do one or the other.
Started working on the huge MegaBloks Enterprise again two nights ago. Sorting and bagging the pieces did make it easier to contain the mess and find pieces, as I'd hoped.
I don't have any more LEGO sets in my backlog; maybe I'll finally get to working on a MOC idea. Yet that will involve going through piece storage in my bedroom rather than taking a kit to the TV room.
I also think there is a problem with some pins which can be really hard to push in pin holes (or pull from), especially that small connector with a pin and a pin hole
If anyone can open this LXF and delete the garage/debug it that'd be great because then all the work's for nothing.
Veronica - Hulkbuster Armour Module (WIP)
I started this concept back in 2015 and haven't touched it since, finally you can expect a full reveal on 5th July.
I think I had an error with gears and stuff inside not aligned the right way before building the switch, but it was quick to fix
Then earlier this year I had a bit of a Rogue One fest and built all the sets I had from the film. As a theme they were all exceptionally good sets but #75153 stood out as a good rendition of the source material.
After a conversation with another member about the hobby and what it meant to us (thanks for that) , I decided it was time to stop sitting on my hands and do what I love doing best. Building.
So after a lot of sorting and finding little baggies of parts, I did, and below is the result in all its glory, standing next to it's little brother.
Considering this is a ten year old set, it is a fantastically fun build and really does look the dogs danglies.
I bought a bin of Lego a few months back and this is set was scattered among the pieces. Only missing a couple of pieces that I was able to source from my son's collection. Also missing two mini-figs. Oh well! When I do the math on what else was in the box, this only ended up costing me ~$1.
Fun little build that my son greatly enjoys.
With thanks to this thread for the inspiration!
I like the colour scheme, and prefer it over TLG's road plates, but will need to make it quite a bit wider. I'll likely add a cycle lane and space for cars to park. And the pavement needs to be wider to accommodate those vendors!
Good thing I already have hundreds of 2x2 tiles...
The point of the post is to share what we're building, if there is concern on the specific words I'm using I apologise.
I'll try to phase my sentences carefully in future post. Thanks.
done with book 1 and I'm loving it.
I knew from the box, it was going to be a great build.
So far, so good!
I just finished building #70902 Catcycle Chase. The Minifigs are great and the bike is a nice build, but the shop front is a little lacking. I've decided to try and expand it with my first modular MOC; wish me luck!
To return to the topic of this thread: I've just finished off the XL-version of 31051 (changed from 25cm height and 6x6footing to 40cm height and 8x8footing and an enlarged cabin):
Due to the use of the macaroni-pieces the entire assembly is quite fragile to move around; the "inner" (made up of 1x4's etc) walls threaten to collapse. Maybe will fit some "strengthening-beams" at a later stage, might this prove to remain an issue.
At least now it has a proper size in comparison to the Modulars, and the "man with camera" can actually stand behind the railings.
Next up: either 60169 or 31067.
As will I. I'm starting to finally build my City this summer, so we can compare progress and complain and vent when frustrations arise and see what similar or different solutions are found. Once my big house projects are finished, hopefully by my birthday early August, I plan on getting it built. Looking forward to upcoming double points to order more sidewalk tiles. Despite my wife's objections, I'm not using folding tables - my plan is to build a layout similar to the dad from the Lego Movie, made from wood. The nice thing is, a standard sheet of plywood is 4'x8' so all you need are 8' 2x4s to support it and cross brace it. Plus, if your basement floor is uneven, a fold up table will wobble pretty badly and the feet tend to not be big enough to securely hold pads to keep it level. With a wood-built table, if you use 4"x4" posts as legs, there is enough surface area on the bottom to securely tack in felt pads to both balance the table as well is not destroy your floor.
My plan is one big U-shaped layout, with the modulars (all 12!) in the middle and the one leg as downtown with my skyscrapers and the other leg functioning as residential housing, and my old #6597 and #1682 forming an air/space-port.
I'll keep you posted. Looking forward to seeing the development. I'm back to working on the pantry now.
