Firstly, apologies for the lack of any updates recently, as exams approach for me I have had less time to build or gather pieces for the Arkham Asylum MOC. Between the 13th of May and 4th of June I have several A-level exams (that is the equivalent of APs for US readers) in Latin, Ancient Greek, Classical Civilisation and English Literature. Anyway, without further ado, allow me to fill you in on developments this month so far...
In the first week of April I finally received my Lego cabinets. I am in the process of filling them up with sets for display and the parts I have so far are going in their respective drawers. I am very pleased with these as storage solutions, particularly the small component cabinets which are just the right size to store whatever pieces required and are ideal for Lego. An image of the drawer cabinets can be seen below, as you can see they are too large for my small photography studio and I have only just begun to fill them with parts.
I have also made my first Bricklink order for this project on the 17th of April which although small, contains some very useful parts including some rock pieces and twenty conical flask pieces containing a green liquid which will be used for medical rooms and the like, plenty of which will be found in my Arkham Asylum model. I have not even got around to unpacking those yet, so busy have I been!
Finally, and moving away from progress on my MOC, I have been able to get my hands on all three Superman: Man of Steel sets, along with the three Iron Man 3 sets as well. Expect reviews of those over the next few weeks. My intention is to put those up whenever I have little to update you on, so as to avoid too many long periods of inactivity like the last three weeks, although I will probably only be able to post one or two articles during my exam period.
It is also worth noting that as you can see it is now possible to follow my blog with a single click on the right hand side of the screen. If you have a Blogger or Google account, click on there to subscribe for updates as the actual building begins!
