LEGO Death Star Construction

A rather lovely friend gave me a present of a LEGO Death Star, knowing my love of LEGO Star Wars!  I’ve not touched LEGO for over 20 years, so it was clearly going to be a challenge…well, that and the 3000 pieces and the manual the size of an art book!  It’s now 4 days on and I am about 1/3 to a 1/2 through construction, doing a few hours a night when I can.  It is a beast of a kit and has waaaaay too many parts…but it is really starting to come together.

Here’s a video of the contents of the box…

And so, after debagging all the 3000 parts, construction began in earnest!

And here’s a video of where I am up to right now:

About 12 hours of building time later and I am somewhere between 1/3 and a 1/2 done and it looks like this:

I’ll post more updates as construction nears completion!

    What an awesome undertaking.

    Just keep your lego x-wings away from it as you may have to start over again…
