This is my 2nd book of "The LEGO Build-It Book" series, showing how to build 10 more cool models and stimulating creativity.
About this creation
A few months ago, I was happy to announce my first book. Now it's time for the 2nd volume, which is available during this month. I was already lucky enough to get my hands on a copy, and I'm quite excited!
Again a big thank you to graphic artist Mattia Zamboni for his help.
You can order your copy at the publisher No Starch Press directly, or through several big online bookstores.
Here are the 10 models covered, all built using the pieces from just 1 parts palette: Hot Rod, Roadster, Chopper, Gran Turismo, Wrecker, Dune Buggy, Forklift, Big Rig, F1 Racer, and Excavator.
Each model is introduced with beautiful computer generated images! Besides the renders, it shows some background info and a classification.
The biggest part of the book shows you how to build each model with step-by-step instructions!
A lot of time was spent on optimizing all the steps, to provide a nice building experience.
Besides the instructions, this 152 page book includes some helpful tips and tricks to design your own amazing vehicles, all presented in brilliant, vibrant colors!
Whether young or old, this is a perfect present for the Holiday Season to give to any LEGO fan, including yourself. ;-)
Congratulations on getting on the Lego Car Blog! The review looks great :). Also, to build 10 individual models out of one pool of bricks is very clever, and quite inspiring. I may just try and see what else I can make from set 31006. Could I build ten good models? :D
The goal of these books is not to provide ready to use vehicles (whether or not on minifig scale), neither to glorify one set only, but to open one's mind, by showing how basically any palette of bricks can be turned in all kind of different designs when you use a little bit of imagination and creativity.
Have the first book, can't wait to get the second one. Given the huge Lego fan base, I'm surprised there aren't more guides likes this to build alternative models - I find it userful for learning new techniques.
Well this looks just as good as your first book which I was lucky enough to get my hands on a few months ago. The production is excellent and the techniques extremely clever. I think I will ask father Christmas for this :)
