Goal #20: Build > 1,000 Piece LEGO Set

Posted: March 30, 2019 in Uncategorized

Goal #20 on my 30 Before 30 List was to assemble a > 1,000 piece LEGO set. I never played with LEGO growing up, which surprises my fellow engineers as almost all of them loved LEGO.

My interest was sparked when I saw the Saturn V LEGO set my Dad had received from one of his buddies. When did LEGO get so cool? The Saturn V was an incredible engineering achievement, and now LEGO created a miniature brick version! For my 29th birthday, I received the 1969 piece Saturn V LEGO set.

This set was assembled two weeks ago while my father in law was in town. The entire  process was very enjoyable. You follow a set of instructions and end up with a cool model. There was no creativity or original thinking (I was merely an assembly line worker), but I didn’t feel bored or distracted.

This is a hobby I’d like to continue. Some other sets that sparked my interest were the Porsche GT3RS and Star Wars Millennium Falcon. I’d also like to modify my LEGO Saturn V and turn it into an actual rocket. That’d be a sweet Lethal Engineering video, right?
