Going back a bit, to 1980, by revisiting the Lego Ideas Book 8888. The ideas books were full of great ideas for building, and the instructuctions were less “piece by piece”, forcing the builder to figure out which parts had been added, and where they belonged.
I didn’t have the correct parts, in the correct color back in the ’80s, so my version never looked quite right. I’ve decided to get the few remaining parts of the correct colors. I also decided to put together an LXF file. I haven’t put everything at the correct angles, not sure if I’ll take the time to do that or not. LDD doesn’t make that part very easy.
