Building the set.

Well I had some great fun with my 4 year old little girl at the static caravan building my 'Space Patrol' Lego Design by me set...

These images are actually pretty good quality, you can zoom in on any image by clicking on it - then again a second time for full size.

I thought it would be fun to make it look like the crew were building the ship - it was nearly finished at this stage, most of 530 pieces in place.

Here we see the incomplete cockpit - with the Captain and Gunner in their seats.

Here are the navigator and pilot finishing off the ship - fitting a wing section no less!

At the start of this build, the glass baking dish was 100% full to the brim - one problem with large design by me sets is the fact you don't get little numbered bags - you just get a massive bag and a packing list...

The instructions actually came in two books - there were so steps!  The instructions also - being automatically generated are not up to the standards of commercial Lego Sets - they were useful, helpful and generally pretty good - however, there were a few steps which weren't entirely easy to follow.  Of course you can always refer to the LD4 program to see exactly what goes where.

I'll be sharing the wonderful printed box next time and some more images of the complete ship - perhaps with some images of a vintage Lego Spaceship for comparison.
