    That's my plan. Add the parts list to a BL wishlist, remove the parts for the sections I'm not building, fill the wishlist from my spare parts stash, bricklink/bits&pieces the rest.
    Room is going to be an issue too with parts for 3-4 more models on the way, the rocket farm is going to fill the top of a 80mm Billy bookcase as it is.
    I see the appeal but the market wouldn't be there, it'd be a subset of everyone that has a Saturn.

    I've got those instructions and in the process of building it myself.
    I don't have the car transporter (Do have bucket wheel & Big red but got almost all those pieces from the car transporter across my other sets. (just some in different colours)
    I'm up to the top of the tower and the crane to go.

    Yep. Current progress. That’s 5 of the 7 pdf’s built.
    The xl motor does move it but it is a struggle for it to move it with how heavy it is. Very heavily geared down to slow it down.

    Love it, that's awesome :thumbup:

    I'm pretty committed to making a static version of it I think. Just need to find some more time.

    No I don’t have one unfortunately. i do have lego on the tops of numerous cupboards in our living areas and as I build the cabinetry in our house I’ll be doing some feature shelves for displaying it.
    Where it is at the moment will have a subwoofer at the bottom and 3 feature shelves above that for displaying lego. Similar further across that wall on the opposite side of the tv.

    Rebrickable does the same thing

    This one actually scans a pile of Lego and tells you what you can build with it

    Really enjoying the space shuttle build. It's amazing how relaxing I'm finding lego these days. It's great stress relief :)

    Just wait until you have to put the stickers on the inside of the bay doors. 4pcs per side with 3 stickers per piece. :tired::wired::tired:

    I'm building mine with my 8yr old son, who has an attention span of about 30 seconds, so it's taking a while :)

    LOL, yay!
