Nice Clock Tower
" The Big Ben is another interesting set from Lego Architecture.
I was lucky enough to find it in a Duty Free shop while travelling given this set has been retired.
As always it was fun to build it and would recommend it.
On the other hand, I was surprised about how quick one can build it. It took me 1 hour and 10 minutes and I'm far from being a Lego specialist, I actually consider myself a Novice. Please bear in mind that there are several small bricks to be fitted in tiny spaces so I don't think this can be suitable for someone with big fingers.
The level of detail is quite good and once again Lego did a very good job on this.
Looking forward to my next set! "

Beautiful Skyscraper
" This structure is very well designed. I personally like the fact it's 39cm tall as it's never enough to appreciate the 829.8m real skyscraper.
The colour itself is quite bright, it would have been interesting to see more 'glass' representation as the original structure. The rest of the materials (steel, aluminium and reinforced concrete) are well achieved.
It's important to watch out the sections where the spacing changes, if you get it wrong, you need to rebuild from there. It happened to me in one particular section, hopefully I realised after some minutes!
The instructions are very clear and relatively easy to follow.
Last tip worth mentioning, make sure you are gentle when putting the bricks otherwise the partial structure can go down given its sensitivity especially in the mid section.
Overall, great tower and looking forward to my next architecture set! "

Great landmark!
" Being my second Lego of this great Architecture collection, I enjoyed it very much. The instructions were clear and I was excited about building this amazing tower.
The only areas I'd suggest to improve are the radio antenna (perhaps add an extra thinner antenna), the colour of the bricks (they are too grey whereas the real tower is made of puddling iron and not steel) and the cross sections to make it look more like the real one.
Overall it was quite enjoyable, the four pillars, the iron platforms and the four arches are well made. It kept me busy for a while.
Looking forward to my next set! "

Cool Set!
" Being my first Lego in many years, I enjoyed it very much. The instructions were clear and I didn't want to stop once I started.
I think it's a great landmark and Lego was in line. The only area to improve I'd suggest is the top of the wheel as it's not very rounded and the colour is questionable.
Overall, great set and very pleasant experience.
Looking forward to my next set! "
