    Hi all
    A bit of a random question,i received the lego kombi for fathers day this year and thought i would make a start last night,opening the box i found several bags containing over 1300 parts, my question is do the different bags relate to different steps of construction or do i just tip them all on a tray or something and search for the bits i need like doing a jigsaw

    Hi Robmitch , to answer yr question YES. dont do what i did and mix them all up. also there are two books , stage one and stage two, it will also help if you have a pair of reasonable size tweezers ,{when you start you will know why }.
    You may also find that there is a part or two missing .it happened to me , but when i finished ,i found the were heaps of spare parts left over. Would not like to say how many times i had to get on my knees and go searching across the floor looking for a part that fell off the table. So damn frustrating but i loved every minute of it . The kids will love to help to ,oh boy, any how enjoy. lol
    regards Chris

    Agree with Chris about the kids helping. They're the Lego masters!

    FYI Lego has great customer support and if you are missing a piece or two go to their website, there's a page where you can tell them the set number and the missing parts and they will send you new ones. Ask me how I know :rolleyes:

    thanks for the replies,unfortunately the kids that bought it for me are 24 and 19 and both daughters that have no interest in helping, might bring it to old bar with me

    Been a couple of stories with members opening all the packs :eek: then trying to assemble o_O. Have seen some assemble them into a twin cab ute :D
    I got one just after they became available ....... still unopened :rolleyes: but as project rich and time poor it's in a safe place until I retire from retirement :confused:

    I was able to outsource to the family of a work colleague. The task required younger eyes than mine. Took about 6 hours to assemble. I forgot to request the right hand conversion.

    ....and when it’s finished, do NOT leave it on a table/bench in the back of your kombi when you drive.......like I did.
    Now I have about 1100 pieces to re-assemble....:rolleyes:
    Cheers,
    Mark
