Apologies if this is in the wrong place - this is my first post here. A bit of background - I had Lego as a child, which was a very long time ago. Around 2009 I got some Star Wars mini sets free with the morning paper and since then I've built the Big Bang Theory living room, but what really got me back into Lego was the Saturn V. I fancied something a bit more challenging so after seeing a clip on YouTube I bought the Bucket Wheel Excavator, which is sitting unopened as it's my birthday present to myself and my birthday is still three days away! I also couldn't resist the Mobile Crane (YouTube has a lot to answer for) and managed to get one off eBay; I'm awaiting delivery of that one.
So (at last) my question - as I've never built any Technic sets, have I started with things that are too complicated? Should I get a smaller, simpler set to see how these things work before I tackle the giants? And if so, can anybody recommend a good one?
