We needed another project to keep us busy. We have been dabbling with some small Lego projects (as shown by my previous posts) and we needed something bigger!
After an exhaustive search, we found a Harry Potter set...Hogwarts Castle. Lego had put out earlier versions of the castle but this is the biggest to date. Actually, I think it is one of their biggest ever sets. Over 6,000 pieces.
The project took us three weekends (about five hours a day) to assemble. The set included 37 bags of Lego pieces and four instruction books. We only screwed up a couple of times. A lot of pieces look the same but have subtle differences. You only know you screwed up when the pieces don't fit.
We were not shorted any pieces however, we have bunch of extra pieces (all small, single block size).
Here is the completed castle:
