1978 ... I was 5 years old when my father took me in the modest village cinema to watch a movie ... I was struck by what would have forever changed the way of making films ... Star Wars.
The next day, rummaging in the "keg of dixan" full of Lego bricks started to build my first spacecraft in the saga.
From then on it was easy to combine two of my biggest passions that generated the complete collection Lego Star Wars UCS.
You're right, but it's a problem that I usually find in the official set-up manuals. However, the "silver" parts are very small. I'm glad you're having fun building it and I'm curious to know what you think when it's over. Thank you
