I also recommend the use of about 30 paper cups or other holders to sort the different parts beforehand; you don't want to grabble from an unsorted heap of pieces. Trust me on that.

In purchasing and building this set, one thing became crystal clear to me. As far as its architectural line is concerned, Lego simply isn’t competitive. With a few exceptions, Lego isn’t competing on kit size and where it does compete, the prices are far too high. Lego knows this and is using slick packaging and a minimalist design aesthetic to cover for the fact that it’s just not willing to come off of its 8 to 11 cent per piece price formula. (As a specific example, take a look at Lego’s Leaning Tower of Pisa set. Compared to the Wange set, it’s really not worth bothering with.) It’s true that, overall, Lego is still a superior product, but in my experience with different building systems, that superiority should equate to a 125% to 150% price premium. It definitely does not equate to the 250% to 300% price premium that Lego regularly charges. Lego’s competitors are growing fast and getting better by the day. My bet is that Lego is in for a hard fight going forward. For all practical purposes, I’ve moved on. The last four sets that I’ve bought are from Lego’s competitors (Wange and Nanoblocks).
By the way, even though the box says that this kit is for children ages 6 and up, it is clearly not a kit for young children. Just as Lego’s architectural series is aimed at teens and adults, so too is this one. The instructions could be better, but they are acceptable. If you find them difficult, it simply means that you are not used to building models at this level of complexity and need some practice with simpler models first. For those of you who like a longer build and have some experience with these kinds of kits, this one is great fun!
P.S. The tower leans the right way. The image on the box has been reversed. In fact, you can make the tower lean anyway you want it to.
Fortunately i was able to order lego parts as they werent Wange specific. The model now sits gathering dust waiting to be completed. No more Wange for me.
