6212 X-Wing Fighter
Purchased at Serene Centre
Laid out all 437 pieces on the bed. I realised why people lay it out on the bed. it’s easier that way. of course i got a backache when I was done.
this also meant that I couldn’t sleep until I was done. Damn.
The very first two pieces put together. It’s been AGES since I last played with Lego. I grew up playing it and i’m sure it did good things to my brain, like visualisation and structure and organisation. Also more importantly, learning how to follow instructions.
WWMD: What Would Madonna Do
(sorry I couldn’t resist)
it was like working at a factory. I read the instructions off the manual, where it states for each section, the number of pieces per parts. i pick up the pieces off the rows off my bed, swivel around the my desk and start putting them together. bit by bit the fighter came together.
i was watching V (80s tv show) while fixing this Lego (80s toy) Star Wars (80s movie). i’m an 80s kid!

This is the first time I see materials outside of a regular Lego block being used.

Fitting the body to the wings.
