Good book, if slightly flawed..
on 17 March 2008
Just received the book and built the first model (paper plane launcher).
The CAD instructions aren't as good as genuine lego - at the end of the model there were a couple of things that weren't connected properly which meant some improvisation on my part. Also had to bodge it a bit in places because I didn't have all the parts needed as per their spec. But I guess that's part of what the book aims to encourage so I shouldn't complain too much!!
As per the other reviewer's comments though it really does send the mind racing to new and unexplored possibilities.
Oh, and the PPL was an instant hit with my 4 and 1 year olds once built - hours of fun launching planes all over the place in a way that my one year old in particular would never have managed on her own if you'd tried to get her to do it manually. Fun for all the family :) Looking forward to building the other models and more inventions of my own...
