Quickie of the Week #15 : The Making of LEGO Metroplex (updated 30/06/2015!)

As I slowly settled down to my new role as a parent ( hence the lack of updates in my blog for months), I started to think about what should I build next that  would be "easy" on my current schedule. This means something simplistic in transformation without requiring huge amount of time to brainstorm and figure out the engineering . Metroplex immediately fits the bill. :)

(Many years ago I first attempted to built Metroplex but it was amateurish-looking and he doesn't even have hands!) ,


And please forgive these untouched photo quality. :]
