On my 70th birthday, I extravagantly bought myself a birthday present. I bought it from “the LEGO Shop” (legoshop.com), changing the locale to France and having it shipped to my French office.
I expect it will take my a long time to assemble. The assembly booklet is actually three separate booklets — not for building variations, but just to complete the entire kit.
It is quite detailed. I will try to set aside a few minutes in most days at the office to do a step in the assembly.
When it is finished, it will eventually go to whatever apartment I get on a long term basis. But, for now, it will live in the office.
I expect I will do some update posts during construction…
