    Nice work.

    I've started packing up my sets to store/sell starting with my GT3. Put everything back in the corresponding boxes and it's all good as new (except 1 piece I had to re order as one of teh dogs chewed a side mirror when they were a pup......). Might put in the cupboard for a year or 2 then sell depending on price.
    Nearly finished packing up the Volvo dump truck (1 more bag) and will start on rough terrain crane next. I'm going to keep the Defender and Saturn V out though. Next step is sorting out the old sets from when I was a kid starting with the light up space ship (6780) and the space monorail (6991)

    Mini Rant.. but f**k Lego, if you’re going to make people use the app for instructions, make sure it freaking works

    Care to elaborate? I've never had to use an app for instructions.

    Trying to source the Lego Simpson's house, what are some trustworthy websites you guys use to buy older/second hand sets?

    I want to try stay away from gumtree/facebook marketplace is possible.

    Thanks

    lego mario sets you need to use the app (but also found PDFs of them) for build instructions. Apparently new sets were released yesterday, and they messed up the code. You open it, and it crashes

    Bricklink is good.

    Otherwise I have had success on gumtree for local pickup.

    Slowly working my way through the reissued Saturn V with my son (he's 7, so has an attention span of about 15 seconds). Step 49/337 ...

    One of the better things I did was a stand.
    Kind I used.
    Another kind, closer to the 10213/10231 Shuttle style.

    It's a cool build. Shame it doesn't do anything without using the bluetooth stuff - you can't move anything by hand on it.

    Similar to the Volvo. The Volvo also has terrible steering due to the indexed servo.

    I suspect that once the remote control novelty wears off (which will probably be pretty quickly), it'll sit on the desk in my home office and never move again :D

    Just need Lego to release a Liebherr T284 truck now :D

    You get a similar mini one with the Bucket Wheel :)

    I want them to do a series of CAT vehicles like a 657, D11 and big grader
