Lego Technic and Others.

Hi all!

Thought I'd share a hobby of mine, my Lego Technic and Creator range I'm building up.

I have the Porsche 911 GT3 and also the Bugatti Chiron.

Enjoyed building both and love them, the fact t can relieve stress and give me a few hours of enjoyment an evening.

Build time for the Porsche total was 18 hours over 7 days.
Build time for the Bugatti total was 24 hours over 10 days.

That is some collection Dunc. My work colleague has a room dedicated just for Lego and has so much too.

I can't wait to get more, bought another shelf for my next piece.

I'd never even heard of that until just now... googled it and seen the Titanic model.

I hadn't played with Lego since I was a child, but I kept seeing the Technic Lego thread on Pistonheads.

A few weeks ago, (at the age of 40) I bought the Technic 911 RSR. Absolutely loved building it, and was very impressed by the actual design aspects.

I've now also bought the Mobile Crane (42108) which I've started building.

My biggest problem is knowing what to do with them once they're built!

How many pieces is that out of interest? I enjoy doing the bigger builds, I'm 29 tomorrow so hoping I get at least one piece for my birthday.
