    I soloed a SSD, it took me about 4 days after work to complete. It's suitably epic looking and great fun to build. I found the top plates to be the hardest part; all the pieces are the same colour and they have to be perfect to work.

    The UCS Falcon was a much more entertaining and easier build, though it took a LOT longer. I spent a week on it, I ate, slept, worked, and built LEGO. It was easier because it starts with a frame, not a base, so it's sturdier. It was more entertaining as it's an asymmetric ship, down to the detailing. It's also minifig scale, so you can see characters in the cockpit from outside.

    That's your excuse and you're sticking to it I take it. lol

    Next thing to solve is 3 builders, 3 desks only 1 Model. May I suggest that your next build is a life sized lego pit of the rancor monster that all 3 builders are placed inside and the last one surviving wins the model.

    Legos can be a costly addiction. I would have more if only I had more shelf space. I have mostly Starwars sets on display along with a number of detailed Technic sets. I also have all of my bricks from my childhood collecting 80s and early 90s in several storage bins. One thing I did do was to keep all of my instruction booklets even from my earliest sets.

    Lego releases updated sets from time to time. My last purchase about a month ago was the latest X-Wing (my third different one). Typically, the newer the set, the more accurate the proportions and detail. I swore I would dismantle one of the older two to make room for the new one, but instead after some creative rearranging, I now have all three designs displayed together.

    To me it just looks like a grey ironing board.

    Don't get me wrong I love lego (Technic used to be my thing). I would build a massive 4X4 which had a engine with moving pistons and a gearbox, building the 400 page monster was just the start. You could actually play with it, unlike this thing its just a ornament.

    i have the millenium falcon kit, built it halfway, then had to move it to another house, which meant all of the organization was gone, so a friend convinced me to take it apart, and build our own little ships with it, havent looked back, quite a bit of fun can be had without ever glancing at the "instruction tome"

    Not to be too offensive but by now shouldn't you be skilled at the legos? I know they disappeared in a very disappointing way for about 10 years but those skills stuck with us. If I was lego, I wouldn't tell you whether or not there were extra pieces - I'd let you do what they let you do, it's kind of a psychological experiment. You're already paying them mad gold for this lego set so they may as well have fun at your expense.
