...I also have the Chiron sealed up!

I thought my work may dry up but it has not (thank god) so in the nicest way to build thread may be a bit delayed.

As much as a build thread would of been entertaining i think that's a sign you should be keeping them sealed for another possible rainy day or pass them on to kids,grandchildren or niece's and nephew's. In time they will be worth a lot more to collectors 👍👍👍

Good news on the job front bud.

Plane with 5 passengers on board, Donald Trump, Boris Johnson, the Pope, Nicola Sturgeon and a ten year old school boy.

The plane is about to crash and theres only 4 parachutes.

Sturgeon said “I need one. I’ve got to sort out Scotland!” Takes one and jumps

The pope said “I need one, I've to sort out the Catholic Church.” He takes one and jumps.

Trump said “i need one I’m the smartest person in America’. Takes one and jumps.

Boris Johnson said to the ten year old "you can have the last parachute. I've lived my life, yours is only starting".

The 10 year old said "Don’t worry,
there are 2 parachutes left. The smartest person in America took my school bag"

So I was saving this https://www.lego.com/en-gb/product/pors ... 3-rs-42056 in the loft all sealed up for a rainy day. I think that day has come. Shall I make it and take some great pics to post here?

Stay well.

Paul
Well that should keep you busy for a while Paul. Looking forward to some photos. Perhaps you should do a build thread :lol:
Enjoy mate :D
Agreed - would love to see a build thread for this! Thinking of getting the Bugatti Chiron set myself.
I've built both of them. The GT3 is a good build but has a few issues (Paul CS - read up about the gearbox before you get too far in as you can make a few changes to make the flappy paddles work better)

The Chiron is fantastic and the best Lego build I've done - I'd have been happy paying the full RRP of £330 for it after building it - very satisfying. I might even take it apart yet and redo it, but I have the 911 RSR to build yet as well.

Perfect time for Lego building now, I also have a Tamiya Grasshopper that's been sitting untouched in my office for 2 years - time to get that done as well. It's like permanent Xmas, including the eating! ;) :mrgreen: :lol:

Shame the web link didn’t work for me but that looks great! I really want to build some Lego with my daughter, we went last year to Lego land and have a bit of the easy to build stuff but she will be five soon so I think we can step up the game!

Thanks for the inspiration I will now be found googling Lego like mad and expecting it to be going up in price now!

Without being generalist... the worst offenders to me are middle aged women... everytime I do a shop they’re ignoring the 2m rule. Leaning over to pick up their fave yoghurt. Standing right next to me, yet 2m behind someone in a queue because covid is only transmitted in one direction🙄

I’ve lost my temper a few times over it.
please take time to just ask someone how they are. Kindness costs nothing, but means everything.
