Product description

Synopsis

What exactly is a slope? What's the difference between a tile and a plate? Why is it bad to simply stack bricks in columns to make a wall? The Unofficial LEGO Builder's Guide is here to answer your questions. Focusing on building actual models with real bricks, The Unofficial LEGO Builder's Guide comes with complete instructions to build several cool models but also encourages you to use your imagination to create your own fantastic creations. Inside, you'll learn: The best ways to connect bricks and creative uses for those patterns Tricks for calculating and using scale (it's not as hard as you think) The step-by-step plans to create a train station on the scale of LEGO people (a.k.a. "minifigs") How to build spheres, jumbo-sized LEGO bricks, micro-scaled models, and a mini space shuttle Tips for sorting and storing all of your LEGO pieces The Unofficial LEGO Builder's Guide also includes the Brickopedia, a visual guide to nearly 300 of the most useful and reusable elements of the LEGO system, with historical notes, common uses, part numbers, and the year each piece first appeared in a LEGO set. The firm foundation for your LEGO hobby starts here!
