|Does the "five second rule" apply to Legos?|
Piece on Floor!
|Up to this point, I'd dropped a few blocks in my lap but this was the first one to hit the floor. Not bad - five days before dropping one. It was a good thing this was a large piece, too. One of the worst events that can happen in a Legos project is to drop a single, dark peg and have it bounce and roll away from you on the floor. Those damned things can go for yards, I swear! They always seek hospitable environments, too. A small black piece that hits the floor will find a shadow under the couch, 15 feet away.|
|Today, I put the engines together. They look great! The engines are a bit loose, though. Remember my rant about the loose fitting turret gun? Well, the large engines are held on by only a peg in a hole; no blocks are connected behind them. Only about a fourth of an inch of the peg is in the hole, too. These are the parts that will fall off when moving the toy around - I'm sure of it. The entire back side is made up of eight smaller sections. I did have some problem getting the pegs on the back of one section to line up until I realized that the large piece was too large. Can I count to 14 and then stop? Not that time.|
|Task for tomorrow: A body panel!|
