After quite a hiatus from building nanoblocks, I decided to spend some time on this lovely labour day putting one together. Having purchased two French landmark kits, previously (see here). I chose to tackle the Musee Du Louvre kit.
Here’s what’s in the box.
A quick look at the instructions reveals a basically symmetrical kit, with a few unique pieces. It seemed straightforward, so I jumped in.
It was a pretty enjoyable build, despite my hands being unaccustomed to such detail work–it has been a while after all.
Here is what it looked like around step 5.
The most interesting step featured those unique parts–which I had seen when I built the space shuttle.
Hey, look, those mini figures finally have faces.
Here is what’s left in the box (and a few brown transparent blocks I hadn’t put into the box (sorry).
They rank this at a level 3 in difficulty. I would have to say that it was much easier than that. I like the unique crystal pyramid, and the faces on the “people”, but nothing else stands out for me. On the back of the box it is noted that using the nanoblock LED pad, you can light this up. The pictures of this look spectacular.
The interesting thing not noted in the instructions is that the placement of the pyramid is noted on the baseplate. Unfortunately, I didn’t realize this until I built the whole thing and got it backwards. It is no big deal as it is not seen–but if they went to the effort of doing that, they should have noted it in the instructions.
I give this one a 6.5 out of 10.
