    Being in my shed building with my 3 beautiful Grandchildren. Life gets NO better.

    The challenge of building a decent MOC of my own.

    Should you be having trouble sleeping you'll find reading about my journey into LEGO will almost certainly help. You'll find it in About Me or if viewing on a mobile Activity - About Me.

    Sweet Dreams.

    Thank you. Just as we’ve finished the shed the weather turns furnace like making it far too hot to in go there. The thermometer hit 33.8° in there this afternoon and that’s with having had both doors open since around 8am. I’m not wishing time away, life’s far too precious for that, but roll on Winter.

    Thank you Igor You’re right, it really is nice job Gilly. I take no credit save sorting parts into boxes at a rate of around 1 to every 5 or 6 of Gilly’s. As for it being tidier last time you saw it, as I recall most of the mess was various parts of your Koenigsegg scattered across my table Thank you my Friend. I’m very lucky to have the collection I have the vast majority of which I’ve not paid anywhere near full price or value for. Unfortunately the days of cheap LEGO seems to have come to an end. It is a relaxing place to be. With the radio on and no distractions it’s a great place to build Thanks boss. The mobile/iPad stand’s great. I build using digital instructions so it’s ideal. I also use it to hold my phone/iPad when taking photos. Doesn’t improve the quality (you may have noticed) but at least it keeps my wayward fingers out of shot Thank you. It’s a great place to be. Unless it’s hot weather and then it’s a no go area. It was 24° here yesterday but in the shed it was 29.8°

    Grum's Shed

    It’s been almost 4yrs since I got my shed. I didn’t post pictures at the time as there wasn’t very much to see. Over time the shed’s gotten quite cluttered. The Little Darlings moved in, each with their own building/play table, sets were crammed on the racking, under tables & pilled up on the floor. Then there was the numerous large boxes full of assorted parts and others with the Grandchildren’s broken models. It was in dire need of a really good sort out but we never seemed to get the time. Then came the virus and since 17 February when our Dr’s advised us lockdown and begin shielding we’ve had nothing but time. It’s taken over 8 weeks but it’s all pretty much done. All the sets I’m not likely to build for a while have been stored in the loft, the loose parts have been painstakingly sorted by type into tubs and all but one box of the broken models are now rebuilt then dismantled and packed away. I was given an old chest of drawers which is now holds boxes containing my sorted out Technic spares. To say I’m really pleased with how it’s turned out is something of a understatement. Of course there’s no way on earth I could have done this on my own. I have to say a HUGE thank you to my beloved Gilly who’s been out there every day moving stuff about, helping me sort out parts, boxing them up, rearranging stuff and putting up shelves. You name it she’s done it and always with a smile and never a word of complaint. I’d also like to thank Tom Alphin, the Brick Architect for his LEGO Brick Labels. They’re absolutely brilliant and invaluable to anyone organising their parts collection. They must have taken an age to produce. Thank you Tom for the hard work and long hours spent creating these labels and for making them freely available for the benefit of the LEGO community. If you’re not familiar with Toms labels go to Brick Architect and check them out. And now, better late than never, here’s my shed. Apologies for the quality of the pics.

    Looking at the left and right sides of the box it appears as if it’s upside down. Bearing in mind the underside of the GT3 and Chiron’s boxes it’s either a photo of a preproduction box or a fake. Just my thoughts.
  7. He’s Back! My weekend is now complete. Thank you Jim for taking the (considerable amount of) time to bring this excellent review to these pages.

    PF lights and "switch direction"

    If you’re only using the battery box to power the lights you could use a 87513 AAA box as it’s switch is simply on and off.
  9. 11: 101: 619: 47: 39: 218: 1 You guys have made this a very difficult competition to rate. All entries are winners in my book. Good luck to you all.
  10. The v1 units which I’ve had since they first went on sale and are still used a lot have no problems with holding the charge nor do the v2’s which I’ve had for almost a year. I really can’t recommend them highly enough.
  11. I’ve been using BuWizz units since they first came out and in that time have had no problems at all. At the moment I’m using 6 v2 units (thank you Tihomir) for a project and there are days when the 6 are being used almost all day long. Some days the only time they stop is to have the external power banks I use to extend running time changed over. The units are being charged every night and to date I’ve had no problems at all.

    Help Needed Please

    WOW! That was quick. I’d got one end right but was having a problem with the studded end of the window frame. Thank you very much for taking the time to help me.
  13. Good Evening My Friends This afternoon I spent a few hours with my Grandson Jake, building this. A good bit of the time has been spent trying to fathom out how the builder, Tiago Catarino, has fitted the 2493 window. I’ve tried every thing I can think of but as I have no real knowledge of SNOT building techniques nothing has worked. I’d be really grateful if someone can help me please. Thank you. Grum
