Hello, I haven't exactly bought the set, but I was thinking if you could add a separate set that is part of this set? Something like a train to pull the artillery cannon,
So upon receiving the box I was thinking "no way can 4000 pieces fit in this box". Well they did, bag after bag of legos sprawled out over my 6-foot table. This set took me a sold 4 days of at least 30 hours if not more but it was so worth it. You can tell the pieces aren't of the highest quality, so for the smaller pieces, be gentle and for the big pieces, you really have to push to get the legos together. Upon completion I am still in awe of not only how freaking awesome this thing is, but how massive it is. 100% recommend, and definitely gonna buy more sets.
The good part about this purchase is that the box of bricks arrived much earlier than anticipated. We received the item in one week's time instead of the 3-4 weeks as stated when we placed the order.
However, there were some disappointing issues with this product. First, there were 2 missing parts and one of them is a custom piece which we cannot really replace with whatever lego parts we have. But given the number of bricks involved for this item (3846 pieces/parts), just having two missing pieces is not too bad.
Next, the box at the back with windows (below the main deck) was just impossible to connect with the main body of the Gustav. The connection points were just too weak to hold the box in place. We ended up doing away with the box, not fixing it in.
Another issue we faced is the long gun not staying straight. It flexes a lot due to the many joins/connection points. So our gun is pointing down instead of pointing proudly straight ahead. We recommend instead of having many short pieces for the guns, have more long pieces to minimise the number of joins/connection points so that the gun will not flex so much.
Another problem is that the bricks/pieces fall off very easily. Everytime we touched the Gustav, something will fall off and while fixing the fallen piece, another part will definitely fall off. It is impossible to move the Gustav without it breaking apart. We are so afraid to touch the finished Gustav. It will be impossible to clean it!!
Overall, it looks quite impressive and it is a big item. We just wish the gun can hold up straight and we will be quite happy with it.
