LEGO. There, I got the attention of a large number of you.
The LEGO Build-It Book: Amazing Vehicles is the first volume in a new series from No Starch Press that is intended to give anyone ages 7 and older some ideas of things they can build or modify using LEGO. The 10 projects in this book are ranked by complexity, functions, and required pieces. The introduction page for each project includes design notes, technical specifications, and beautiful pictures of each finished product to whet the appetite. There is also a pretty neat section on advanced building with some useful tips for building with greater strength and imagination.
This particular volume is focused on vehicles. The 10 projects included are:
- Muscle Car
- Multi-Purpose Truck
- Historic Racer
- Classic Car
- Wheel Loader
- Street Rod
- Rescue Truck
The book is beautifully done with excellent art and clear instructions. Anyone looking for some vehicle plans and ideas is sure to find it interesting. My 7 year old son is waiting excitedly for me to finish this review and hand the book over to him. I consider that a very good sign, too.
