Lego projects: spiderman jet

Posted by spots (Singapore, Singapore) on 4 June 2010 in Art & Design and Portfolio.

Still on what we did on Tuesday... remember how I said Dan teared a bit in frustration when he couldn't catch any longkang fish @ Kids' Kampung? Well, the ONE thing he DOES have the patience and perseverence for... more than I do in fact... is LEGO.

I have decided that for the June hols, Tuesday afternoons will be LEGO afternoons. Recently, I bought various mini-lego sets over ebay--they're from a seller in Hong Kong, and though the brand is not Lego, the blocks and parts fit Lego parts exactly. (And it's cheaper!)

So, Ben got to work on something with 20+ parts, and Dan worked on something with 130+ parts. This Tuesday, it was a ... SPIDERMAN JET! Hey, I was impressed with it when it was done! It had lots of movable parts, laser guns, movable wings, jet engines, and a Spiderman as well. While Dan had the patience and perseverance to stare at all those small parts and diagrams and figure out every step, he still needed me to come in and help check whether he did things correctly sometimes. So, I can't say he can work on such things totally independently yet.

I'm really happy with the final product. With 130+ parts, I realise that his speed of putting things together is faster than before. It took us about 1+ hour to complete this one, and that was still TOO long for me (as in I really don't have the stamina for this, and wanted to take a break halfway!) Guess that's the difference between guys and girls?
