10242 Mini Cooper


Earlier this year, I completed the Creator Mini Cooper.  This is the second in a line of Creator highly detailed models, the first one being the highly popular VM camper van.

The box is a slightly irregular square shape, which honestly makes it a little interesting for storage.  The box contains the standard numbered baggies, instruction books and.. a sticker sheet.

One of the best features – I did not expect this – is that there are a range of number plates to choose from.  One of which is Australian plates, how appropriate!

The build is bottom up, so essentially you start with the base and build outwards and then upwards. 

There’s some opportunity for parallel building, particularly the seats.

There are some advanced techniques at play here, particularly around the cabin and the rear of the vehicle.

Brilliant detail, scale.. an enjoyable build for fans of Lego and of Mini Coopers!
