Large Scale Models
all the things that you can do with Lego, large scale model building
is no doubt my favorite. There is just something about building
something that is huge that really gets me excited. On top of that,

more of a challenge.
With large scale modeling you also
have to deal with engineering problems you would have never dreamed
of, such as weight handling and piece stress. Until you have tried

with sagging and the stress on pieces.
Of course the problem I most often run into is
just plain running out of room! These things are massive, but you
dont just run the drive train through the cabin; it needs
to be hidden. Hiding control rods and moving pieces can be a difficult
