Darn it I wish I’d seen this. Two of my main hobbies combined 😭😭😭

Can you post photos? What did it go for?

An incredibly disappointing £79 - just under. a quarter of what it cost to be commissioned! Oh well, it is what it is.

Looks impressive.

But it cost £320 to be commissioned!! Wow, I must be seriously out of touch with the cost of Lego 🙄

You could try building the Kassam. Only the 3 sides to worry about.

Almost 4 x, but not quite.

The cost of the Lego is only part of the price. The real cost is in the time taken to design it to be accurate and the sourcing of the right colour bricks. The light yellow bricks in particular were very difficult to find.

Do you still have a copy of the development plans/sketches/required pieces?

I was wondering if oxfordyankee might be able to make a bit more for his good cause by flogging copies of the plans?

I didn’t build or design it,I’m afraid. It was built by a guy who specialises in Lego stadiums, so I have no plans etc. Sorry folks.

If my son was a couple of years younger, I would have tasked him with working it out from the photos. Nowadays if it isn't a lamborghini or bugatti he isn't interested (or even if it is maybe) .
