    I scored the VW Bus for my birthday. Shame it's in the same position as the other 4 things I've not yet finished.

    That wall mount is pretty effin awesome.

    Lego just restocked on the women of nasa kit, managed to get it ordered in time for christmas for my wife. She has the first women of science and big bang apartment kits in her classroom. Was hoping I could get the Saturn V for christmas but I was told the lawn tractor was my early present haha.

    Aye, I was enjoying the build so much, I stopped after the first phase. It's been sitting like that forever. Time to finish that up this holiday break, I think!

    I randomly received the Space Needle (architecture) from Amazon with no card/etc, stating who it was from.

    I now have three box sets un-opened, and 2 non-Lego sanctioned projects incomplete.

    I decided to get myself a pizza van for Christmas. It looks like a possible good base for other medium-sized commercial vehicle models.

    I was surprised how much of it is made of very small parts. It is nice that it uses components for the chassis rather than a single complete chassis piece. That will give me flexibility to design alternate vehicles.

    I carefully opened the bags, making use of bulldog clips acquired over the years to reclose them. Although the bags aren't really sorted by purpose, more by size and type. I followed the instruction mostly, although I jumped ahead and assembled and attached the wheels early instead of last. I also jumped ahead and constructed the rear part of the roof in reverse, since it used up a bunch of easily-identifiable parts. This caused later brief consternation when I thought a part was missing because I'd managed to work up to it more quickly than expected. Took me an hour of late-one-night (got to chassis and roof done), and then several (perhaps 3, perhaps less) hours of the next day during a relaxed (unconstrained) period.

    My wife actually liked it, and was impressed by the add-ons; scooter and two figures, and umbrella table. I had the figures trade pants because the dark pants were more slimming for Suzanne, and Leonard looked more professional in an all-white uniform.

    So, based on an assumption, based partly on the size of the figures, that each 8mm Lego square can be reckoned to be one foot, you end up with a reasonable scale assumption of 12 * 25.4 / 8 or 1:38. For some purposes a not-bad looking size vehicle (beside the figures) could be built to as small as about 1:50, I would think.

    It's been a fairly standard set this Christmas in Canada. Not super interesting, really.

    Oh yes. One minor interesting thing I noticed was that they now have "pillar" pieces (e.g. the truck B pillars) in addition to horizontally long pieces. Used to be you'd always have a brick wall effect on the side of your truck.
