"I received it on July 24, after a long wait, but took my time building it to enjoy at its fullest the engineering that went into creating this kit. Finished it today and what an awesome result after placing together 3,696 plastic parts! There were 5 missing parts which, luckily enough, in my personal stash, I found 4 but have to wait for one. I ordered all the missing parts to replenish mine. Have to be careful: since there are printed parts, no decals are included, so make sure you do not use them instead of others. You can always go back and rebuild it since it is a Lego kit. View the videos, they are interesting and provide a good insight of how the kit came to be. Take your time! This is not a race, a sprint or a test on speed to build! It is a masterpiece of engineering that, like a good book, should be enjoyed fully as you go through it. Follow the instructions and make sure to understand where you are, what you need to do, where you are coming from and where you need to go. They are full color, nicely printed and bound in two very nice booklets. But like all instructions, there are random mistakes and you will need to go back or forward to verify location or how to install a part or sub assembly. This is where your experience building Lego kicks in. Every time you finish a bag of parts, you will have a couple of parts, usually small, left over. Some you will use in next steps; some will be left over at the end of the build. Keep them and, either start your personal stash or add them to your stash for future use. At some moment, you or someone in your family, will like to build something (MOC-my own creation) and they will be handy. Make sure to have a well illuminated table, covered with cloth, towel, any kind of fabric to prevent any part that falls from your hand, bouncing into the floor or under furniture. If missing parts are frustrating, loosing parts is worse! The packing box is another work of art! A lot of ingenuity and art went into it to throw it away! I plan to use it to showcase the kit, as I did with the Bugatti! It will look spectacular! Having a couple of tools wont hurt. I used the Lego tool, one supplied in other kits, to help removing blocks or shafts and a long nose tweezer, to pick up small parts. I have fat finger and it was hard to pick small parts without messing up something! The price, if you figure all the research, development, engineering, art, parts construction, logistics and shipping organization required to make the kit come true, to me, is a real deal, the right price. This is a wonderful kit! I recommend it to any one. The level of detail, the transmission window, the way all drive train is aligned and works! The way the doors open! The amount of parts used to keep the front lights true to real! Its amazing engineering at its best! For many years, I have called Lego, the Company that put the square peg in the round hole! This, due to the fantastic job they do in creating all those beautiful, detailed kits that help us get over storms, power failures, pandemics, illnesses and more; keep us sane in those moments of insanity the world lives sometimes; help us keep our mechanical and some brain processes active. Thank you Lego! Enjoy your build as much as I enjoyed mine and I cant wait to receive my newly acquired challenge: the Piano!"
"It never stops to amaze me the engineering and imagination that goes into designing this beautiful kits. I have built the Carrousel, the Roller Coaster, the Ferris Wheel, the Star Destroyer and the Millenium Falcom among others but when it comes to detail and ingenuity, this kit has it all. I am taking my time building it to enjoy at its fullest the intricate details it has. Yes, there are some minor flaws in the instruction books but I use those to enhance my ability to build. I still have some work to do, the kit is not finished. But I had to to write this review. The way the engineering of parts and how the power train and front section mate, so perfectly aligned parts, incredible! If I was to find a real flaw, it would be that the kit is not motorized. But needles to say somebody will find a way of doing so. The box is a work of art! The way the different parts boxes are printed and placed to simulate the rear of the car (one section) is great. I plan to use the box to showcase the kit. I have pre-ordered de Lamborghini Sian and expect delivery within the next days. My only hope is that the kit is as challenging or better than this. Thank you for keeping me active through the pandemic with the kits. They helped my household stay calmed and at ease. Yes, I recommend Lego kits to any and all my family and friend's. They keep your mind active, help keep your mechanical and motor skills active and in shape and are a very good promoting family playing together. P.S.: As a general comment, it is sad to see so many excellent kits “out of stock”."
