    I've got a Chiron in a sealed shipping box. Debating whether to just build the thing or sit on it for years..
    It's currently in my unopened collection of wasted money:
    Bucket Wheel Excavator, Mack truck, MB Arocs, Porsche, Firehouse, Saturn V and the original Death Star. I'm sure there's something I'm missing as well.

    The Chiron was a really satisfying build - much better than the Porsche, which I felt got a bit repetitive once you got to putting the bodywork together.

    I will get another chiron for that later. The porsche is already getting pricier.
    I still want one though! Lego technic is much more interesting than standard lego!

    The chiron is my first technic set!

    I have gone off technic and Star Wars, I am very much liking architecture and creator expert at the moment.

    Well it finally happened...

    Almost 2 years after building it and promising if we couldn't find space to display it I'd dismantle it again I finally got around to breaking the Falcon back down... it didn't take as long as I thought it would but was still a bit of an ordeal - my fingers are so sore; and as a guitarist of almost 20 years that takes some doing! (yes I used the lego tool thing, and it helps a lot but not completely)

    On the plus side it means I get the fun of building it again someday (when we hopefully have a lounge with enough space for a coffee table to display it in) but it's going to be the toughest build I've ever done with all the pieces mixed and not in their original numbered bags :p

    For the chiron im doing 2 bags at a time only. Its too much risk to get to the end with a technic set to find you missed a bit at step. 1!

    I mixed. Lots of bags with the falcon and eventually it did feel Like a chore

    Forgot I had it! Niece and nephew got it for my birthday some 6/7 years ago, thought it about time I put it together.

    Amazing that lot ended up looking like this.. magic of Lego :D

    Lot easier finding somewhere to display this size that's for sure!

    Managed to nab the oranges porsche 911 gt3 second hand.
    150 so not bad for current prices

    Didn't want to Miss it as prices are. Already going up.
    May end Up with chiron on one side of the TV, the porsche on the other!

    Finished off the larger of the Cada tanks which was quite a fun build, it's my lads fav technic model so far but I think that's probably due to the fact that it fires bullets via remote control (5 separate motors in this one).

    Compared to the earlier smaller tank

    Also tried to tidy up the loft space but realised I need either a larger wall or more shelves. :p

    And with the massive new Leibherr excavator out later this year which will certainly fill most of a corner...

    Aye, We have the excavator stashed away in the left corner there and still the new mobile crane to build which is meant to be a fair size, all becoming a bit of a squeeze.

    Went to Brick Wonders at the Horniman museum this weekend, it's spectacular; they've actually got the museum itself!

    Just ordered the Technic 42094 tracked loader excavator for my daughter and I to tackle.

    Not done a Lego model is so long, watching my son do some huge Ninjago bits this weekend has awakened my inner AFOL.

    Get an extension, then you'll have more loft space :D
