Hi everyone. This is just a quick update on my LEGO 10179 UCS Falcon project. I have gone through roughly 25%-30% of my collection, and have amassed just over 40% of the parts I need for this beast!
Bricklinking the LEGO 10179 UCS Falcon is a big project!
While I look forward to getting this build started, it also has another unintended outcome. It is forcing me to comb through my collection, allowing me to remind myself what I have. I am also taking this opportunity to refine my sorting strategy. As I go through my parts, I am grabbing certain types of pieces (SNOT bricks for example) and putting them off the side for further refinement down the road. I also have a few other 2016 builds in mind (more on that later!), and as I see parts I think will be useful, I set them to the side as well.
Have you tried building any large, iconic LEGO sets using parts in your collection? What was the biggest one you undertook?
I am an Adult Fan of LEGO (AFOL) and an active member of the Michigan LEGO User Group (MichLUG). I have loved LEGO for as long as I can remember. I am currently working on the following models:
– UCS Millenium Falcon
– Emmett’s Apartment Building
– Gringott’s Bank
