    Hmm, I like the bright colors. I don’t really have the space or the funds for it, however.

    Well, that was unexpected. I like it.

    Those wheels! 😀 😀 😀

    Not my favorite. It just doesn’t have enough character, and I don’t like the colors. Sorry.

    It would be nice if, when such an article were shared, an image from the article appeared, not a chunk of the generic image on the site.
    The article itself is a good, balanced read, as always.

    I got this kit and just finished it it’s a beauty of a Lego set but here are my honest views

    1 there is only one steering bracket so that means then car can only turn one way

    2 there is no Daniel and lando mini figure

    3 a selection of hard soft medium tires would of been good so we can do pits stops etc .

    But all in all this is a great kit and really lets you look into how f1 car is made

    I give it 10/10 more if I could
