Hello, FIRST post here so I hope my question is OK for the forum. I purchased the 75252 ISD for my son to build (yes, I'm helping). We have gotten to Bag #7, and have built the (see picture) the 2 sort of big triangular pieces that go BEHIND the engines and block people from seeing inside the ship. I've drawn a red line indicating the cross beam that extends and helps to connect the 2 pieces to the build. We installed the lower, or bottom triangle with very little issue, BUT we noticed the "cross beam support" is flexed a bit (we figured it was part of the build. BUT when we try to put the top shield (honestly I don't know what to call it, but these shields create the back panel of the ship when installed)....the top shield/panel has an issue(s) when we try to connect it. The 'flex' in the cross beam support seems to be just a small fraction off. Last night, after fiddling with it, I was able to get it connected but felt it wasn't exactly right. When we got up this morning, 2 of the 4 black connectors had come apart. I hope I am making sense here. BTW, if you watch this video from the Lego builder and scrub to approximately 3:30 you see him connect the 2 pieces I'm talking about (but you can't see the cross beam because of the angle). ALSO, he connects it all as 1 piece...not 2, which is DIFFERENT from the instructions. SO...I am very sorry for the long post, but: 1) have you built this?? 2) IF SO, did you run into the same issue?? 3) Any solution if you did?? THANKS SO MUCH in advance!! I have a VERY worried 14-year-old....HECK, I'm worried that I won't know how to fix it for him!! AGAIN, thanks. Kevin
Hi Everyone Totally new member and first ever post so sorry if I haven't got the etiquette right. I've done quite a lot of big lego sets but I've never had a problem before and googling makes it seem like I'm the only person to have this problem and I don't know what to try next. I am step 200 of 752752 - where you attach the first big plate to the skeleton. No matter what I do it just falls apart (see picture) - not dramatically or anything but every time one of the blue, red or black cross pieces comes off, when i try to reattach it, another one comes away and so until i want to throw it against a wall! I don't think anything is bowed or anything - and in any case it doesn't happen to the same piece each time. I have compared it to the picture and I'm pretty sure it's accurate...I've even tried small piece of blutack to hold pieces in place (I really don't want to glue) and I just don't know what to do. Any advice please? Thanks in advance!
