  1. I was about 11 year old in 1996, doing a twice daily paper round and saving my, I guess near £20ish a week, wage from it when I bought the 8480 Shuttle set. It was something I had coveted for a long time when I first set my eyes on it in the Toys R Us Lego aisle. I had been indoctrinated with Lego from a young age, so the 8480 wasn't especially daunting, but it was exciting. I'm now 34, and I don't buy Lego half as much as my 11 year old self, but recently I bought the 42096 for Christmas which I'm near finished with building and it brought back the joy I experienced as a youngster. Having gone back to my childhood home for Christmas, I headed to the attic to look at my large stash of Lego and specifically 8480. I found it, still built, missing the odd plate (a flap plate), though perhaps the gearing not working exactly and my woolworths batteries still keeping the motors whirring. it was also yellowing pretty badly. I was never very good at applying stickers, even on my 42096 build, my stickering is pretty poor, so many bricks will have stickers that overlap to other bricks. I'm thinking of bringing it back to London, cleaning it up and giving it a rebuild. What advice would you give me? I don't think any major parts are missing, and I'll have spares of quite common parts easily available. Can I de-yellow it? https://twitter.com/jarede/status/1210524288857657344 memories.
  2. Hi everyone! I have been a Lego enthusiast for years, but since I started school, I never had the time and money to focus on the hobby anymore. However now that I have the time, I do not have the space and need to build my bank. I am mainly Technic flagship and Ultimate Collectors oriented, and I prefer the newer sets as well. I have started a Bricklink store to sell some items I own that are either taking up too much space or I have no interest in it. These items are all new and sealed, and they include: -Lego Technic 42056 Porsche 911 GT3 RS (I do not like supercars generally, despite being Technic) -$349.99 CAD -Lego Technic 8480 Space Shuttle -$800 CAD -Lego Technic 8860 Car Chassis -$850 CAD -Lego Star Wars 7965 Millennium Falcon -$260 CAD -and Lego Creator 10226 SOPWITH CAMEL (will be added to the store soon ~CAD$185) Prices are a bit lower than its competition, only because I do not aim for high profits and just want the buyer to make the most out of it...and free up space in my home :) All are brand new except model 8860, box is open, and the black beams sit freely in the box (do not remember if they came in a bag or not), but all the bags and books are factory sealed and new, never opened or built. Many of the sets are old and vintage, and I will add more as I determine if I want to keep the set or not that I find. Also, I live in Canada so shipping will be determined on the weight/size of the Lego set and distance. I can do local pickups if you live around Toronto, ON. -My business email is: 1awansua@gmail.com -My bricklink store it: https://store.bricklink.com/legomaster1686&utm_content=globalnav#/shop?o={"showHomeItems":1} -My eBay only has model 8480 Space Ship added to it at the moment, but I will add the rest to it soon if you prefer buying off eBay: http://www.ebay.ca/usr/usamawa0?_trksid=p2047675.l2559
  3. Hi my name is Jan I was trying to fix the battery box of our space shuttle set. The problem appears to be in the switch part as the circuit is complete from first battery to last. I decided to take the red switch top off. Unfortunately one of the metal strips inside popped out (the one that is not fixed in) and I am not sure how it fitted in. Can anyone please tell me where the metal strip goes and explain how the mechanism inside the switch works. I understand that it reverses the polarity when you press down alternate switches. Thank you
