    A day off and it's raining so I decided to dig some old Lego out. That last photo is the oldest two sets I have. Enjoy!

    I have the same airport and race car sets! Well most of them, they are sitting in a big bag with hundreds of other pieces.

    Great display man!

    @XJ40 The condition on those sets is beautiful. How on earth did they survive someones childhood to stay looking like that! Look like they were mint in box or something.

    A bunch of grown men and women who are into Lego kits. You all should be ashamed of yourselves, apparently. :lol:

    LEGO made the statistic that over 70% of the end-users of LEGO sets are 30+ year old adults. :p

    Also for me LEGO is simply my way to express my creativity, its my art medium. For some its wood, for some its paint or stone, I create art with little toy bricks. :D

    Plus, who the hell is going to be building those $100 plus Porsche 911 GT3 RS's with working paddle shifters and ****? I'm sure that a kid isn't going to be building it unless they're a savant.

    Given that we've got a 1:1 (not Lego) model of it at work, I feel like I should get this too. Hmm...

    Love the little astronauts and their gold visors!

    As for adults and Lego, imagine being so crushed of any fun in your life that you thought there was something wrong with it. We should pity people like that, it must suck to be them.

    I always have looked after my stuff right from being small, and kept them in a big box when moving house etc. I spent all my pocket money and odd job money on Lego and model cars and I think because I worked for them I valued them better. The boxes are long gone but I kept the instructions.

    It was strange when I got them out that day as some pieces had fallen off but I knew exactly where they went!

    I've just remembered about a pirate island I have, I'll have to dig that out...

    And for all those naysayers who say we never went to the moon, yes, the flag does look a bit dodgy...

    First, Rad! Second, Jelly! Third, when I was a kid, I legit thought that when I turn 12 or whatever that I couldn't play with my legos that were between the ages of 8-10 for example #iamsodumbsometimes

    The worst thing that LEGO have ever done was to put a maximum age on the box.

    @daan look what you made me do!!

    Also got a free Minifig from Lego Movie 2

    5550B7EB-A624-4848-852F-60CEE2FA5DA6.jpeg

    And it came with these...

    52774018-8F3E-4CAD-A860-ADD0AF8D7218.jpeg

    Also free. They’re doing a free Satellite mini set with £35 or over on Lego City stuff today. I really wish they’d have given me that instead of the ride on rocket set.

    Edit - Built

    236E95B0-1CE5-4E8D-8188-BF9FEB7D58E8.jpeg

    Edit 2 - Completed

    A very satisfying build. Not too tricky, love the gold bricks and the space suits. It will look nice with the Saturn V and smaller lander etc.

    Not due out until sometime later in the year but this set has gone straight to the top of my wish list. Even the B model looks fantastic.

    Designed a LEGO vehicle, a land speed record diesel truck. Approx 800pcs, steering, fully modeled interior, engine and openable hood & doors. I'm planning on building it with real LEGO parts, but boy, custom chrome painted pieces are so expensive, I might have to use normal gray instead. :guilty:

    After correcting a major math mistake where I counted double width lego as one piece, I now have a start :dunce: Any guesses? It should be pretty easy from this angle.

    Finished the plans. Now I have to wait a while for the bricks to arrive and find the time to build it.

    I also have to wait for an SNES game to arrive so I can build that in lego too. The eject button will work, but not the power/reset.

    So I decided to build something small and fun for a change. :D

    Here is my french 600 pcs. Renault Char-B1 heavy tank from the mid 1920's in mini figure size. This was, at the beginning of world war II the best tank in the world, even beating the early German tanks. One of those destroyed 13 German tanks and 3 anti tank cannons in a single battle, with its 47mm turret and 75mm belly cannon.
    It took 140 hits but non penetrate its thick armor. But there were very few of those tanks and they were ill deployed.

    Finally managed to find black rims for my Group 5 car. So much better than the white rims. :dopey:

    I improved my LEGO JGTC car. I always felt like something was a little off with this model, now I increased the wheelbase by 1 (At the front, after the windshield) and its significantly better now. Also, I got rid of the oversized ''lip'' front splitter, which, while cool, was just a little too big.
