Lego Report 4

Jan 04, 2021

Making progress. I expected to be farther along but New Years has taken more time away than I wanted and tomorrow it's back to work.

This thing is way over engineered. Lost of small sub-pieces like this:

But the more I put it together the more I realize that it's actually engineered for "fun". The whole thing could have been constructed a lot simpler, look just as good (most of what I'm building is completely hidden) but wouldn't be as much fun to put together.

I also wonder if there was some Lego marketing person pushing the designers to "add more pieces" so they could cross 9000.

I'm done with box I, starting box II.

I appreciate when LEGO uses bold, primary colors to indicate orientation.

In November I built the Steamboat Willie (21317) kit which is completely black and white when done. For internal pieces, they use primary color bricks so they can illustrate orientation.

You could always leave it as it is now and say it's actually Prenton Park stadium, home to Tranmere Rovers football club.

I wonder what the knife and the hammer are for, but the former is probably to open the bags and the latter to secure the bricks in place? ;-)

But apart from that your desk looks amazingly clean - nice job!

Scissors where there to open the plastic bags of pieces. Hammer was there for an unrelated reason.

I always thought the GNU Unix tools were bloated to death so the author  could write a book with a fringe animal in the cover.
