    Working on a 1990-ish Formula 1 car. Very early alpha, the engine area is only half-finished but its slowly turning into something cool. The suspension arms at the front are too thick but sadly I have found no solution for that, especially since it has functional steering.

    It’s because of this that they haven’t made any more Millenium Falcons for me to get. Lol

    I've been having the Lego twitches lately. I really need to break out one of my shelve sets and build something.

    Uhmm, yep! Here's my to do list once I get bored of GTS:

    10030 Imperial Star Destroyer (2002)
    10143 Death Star II (2005)
    10221 Super Star Destroyer (2011)
    75192 Millennium Falcon (2017)
    10123 Cloud City (2003)
    10019 Tantive IV: Rebel Blockade Runner (2001)
    75159 Death Star (2016)
    75098 Assault on Hoth (2016)
    75144 Snowspeeder (2017)
    75060 Slave I (2015)
    75095 TIE Fighter (2015)

    What sucks is I don't have enough room to display them all, so I have to build a few, then break them down if I want to build more. #whitepeopleproblems

    How have you managed to secure all them? I can’t even get the latest UCS Falcon

    I'm lucky enough to live about 15 miles away from a Lego store here in the Portland area. The Lego UCS sets are the only ones I'm interested anymore (besides awesome car replicas - not a fan of the Porsche). I've been collecting them since the beginning. However, I did sell my original 10179 Falcon to help pay for this new one.

    Do you queue up for them then on release day or have you just been able to buy one normally?
    I went to my closest store on the day that they went on sale to VIP’s only (14th Sep). Got there on a weekday just 15 mins after the store opened and they were sold out. They had 24 sets in and people had been queuing for two hours before the shop opened. Been waiting ever since, with little to no information. Even the Lego store staff don’t seem to have been told what the plan is.

    My family and I went to the Lumiere festival in Durham two years ago and whilst at Durham Cathedral we paid £1 each to fit a block to a Lego model of the Cathedral in a bid to raise money for some restoration work the Cathedral needed. We were back at this years festival over the weekend and the Cathedral was displaying the finished model. Over 300,000 bricks in total.

    20% discount. Should I buy Lego? To buy or not to buy, that is the question.

    This should never be in question. The answer regardless is ALWAYS BUY

    Got the bricks today and built my 1985-90 F1 car! :dopey: By brick count my smallest design so far but I really like it.

    450 parts and steering.

    I'm in the same boat. I ran out of room where I currently display my sets, so I'm building a second shelving unit for them.
    Once I get that finished I'll actually have enough room to display what is currently built along with the stack of un-built sets.

    Or at least I hope so.

    Here is a digital render of my latest project, which is making an accurate model of the 79' Budweiser Rocket landspeed record car.

    Here is the real car:

    And here is my model:

    I was bored so I made some improvements to my 90's F1 model, namely the front wing. Gave it a more realistic shape, also now it acts like a diffuser - just like real F1 wings of that era.
