So as soon as i heard the news that Lego where going to release a Simpsons House model i knew i would have to buy it.

The build took me about 8 hours in total over 4 days. There was so much detail in every room. I was surprised at how well it resembled the one that i had seen on TV pretty much all my life.

The set wasnt just the house, it was a lot more. There was plenty of other accessories that you see on the program as well. The car, mailbox, BBQ, skate ramp, sun loungers and many more.

So this is my third Lego Technic build and is model 42006. (You can see all my lego builds here:

So i bought this a few months ago. I really enjoyed this build and i think this model is a bit more functional than your everyday tow truck.

I personally didnt think the tracks would work to well on this model but i was wrong. They took a while and where a bit fiddly to put together but they make the model totally unique.

There is 2 switches for gear selection at the back of the model.
– One controls the top boom forward and backwards motion, flick it the other way and it controls the bottom boom.
– The second controls the opening and closing of the claw which has a really strong grip which i proved by lifting cans up off the side of the sofa! 馃榾

Well after buying my first Lego Technics model back in January ( I decided it was time to invest in a bigger one.

My birthday wasn’t far out so I decided to go for the Lego HGV Tow Truck (42008).

Lego HGV Tow TruckThis one unlike the other was fully motorized with hydraulic T-bar and boom including winch. It also had rear stabilizer legs for picking up heavy loads.

This one was far more complex that the first one and the main gearbox to control everything was a lot more complicated and fiddly. Once the engine and the gearbox was built it went quite easy from there.

In total I think it was a 1500 piece set and took around about 5 / 6 hours to complete.

I was as excited as a fat kid in a sweet shop when I got my Lego Technic Tow Truck.

Lego Technics Tow Truck Box As a kid I had loads of Lego. I used to build anything. I think I was about 9/10 when I got my first ever Lego technic set. I got a green dump truck. I was only young so don’t think I could build it that well. Now I look back to it was over 1500 pieces!

So, after reading a thread on a forum I go on where a lad got a Tower Bridge Lego set. This went on to loads of people going out and buying some amazing Lego models. I shopped around for a good few hours before I came to the decision that I wanted the Crane Truck (8258).
