"I am relatively new to the Lego family (although my older son has been building sets for years and was a big influence on me to start building)...In my youth (68 yrs. old) I would spend hours upon hours of building, painting, etc. plastic models of all kinds of things...but cars models were my favorite..believing I was still good with my hands, I tackled this very detailed, Technic set...truth be told – (I had built the VW Bug - 1,167) prior to doing this build... What a blast! it definitely brought me back to my youth...the attention to detail is remarkable...steering works, pistons go up and down, etc. it was an approximately a 21 hour build (quarantined and doing it like a puzzle - passing it and doing a small sections at a time)...the build difficulty was on a 4-5 level...I have ordered the light package (through Brick Tool) and can't wait until it comes to put a finishing touch on this build...the down side was the bags were not numbered - but I had purchased a puzzle board, so I could spread the pieces from the bags in piles, etc. I also anticipated doing a lot more big builds... Needless to say, I hooked and already on the "slippery slope" of Legos...no surprise here...I have 3 additional "big" builds on the way..."
"I am relatively new to the Lego family (although my older son has been building sets for years and was a big influence on me to start building)...In my youth, I would spend hours upon hours of building, painting, etc. plastic models of all kinds of things...but cars models were my favorite...I recently built the VW Bug (1,167 pieces - 9 hour build) and the Technic Porsche 911 RSR (1,580 Pieces – 21 hours build) and I needed something to get me through the time being spent at home (stay-at-home orders NY) and waiting for my back orders from Lego to be filled... I liked the idea that it was a kit that you could build 2 different models...the ZR1 and a “hot rod”... It was an approximately a 4.5 hour total build (2 hours on the Hot Rod, 2.5 hours on the ZR1)... I built the hot rod first and then broke it down and then built the ZR1...considering the set was a limited amount of pieces (600ish) it was a great set and well worth the price...interesting that the instructions for the hot rod were only on-line - saved on 2 sets of printed plans...I actually liked the on-line instructions - built both models from them...they are great - they are 3D and can be manipulated to turn the images in any direction... The build difficulty was on a 3 level... Needless to say, I am hooked and already on the "slippery slope" of Lego...no surprise here..."
