- this is not a set for everybody, but it was very fun to build it, and at the end it looks great! i needed to do some changes to make it work because i lost some parts, but it looks the same.
- I bought this for my self and this model fidnt disapoint. I have been collecting architecture sets on places i have been and this so far has been my favorite.
- I understand it is hard to get details in such a small set. Slightly disappointed though in some of the details that are there. Overall, though, I wouldn’t miss it with the rest of my UK sets.
- Look good except London buses can’t go down The Mall as they can’t get through Marble Arch. Some sub-assemblies are hard to fix to the model because of the low number of connectors.
- This set was probably one of the best ones that I’ve built so far in the Architecture series! It was pretty challenging, but the end result came out amazing afterwards. I’ve been trying to find space to display it since it’s pretty wide but otherwise I love the size! 😀
- Shipped quickly and quality is tremendous. Made one boy very happy at Christmas time.
- Fun to build, it seemed accurate to me after visiting the actual palace a year ago. I love the miniature double decker bus, super cute! The fountain, frankly, was a tad disappointing, but other than that, overall it was fun to build and admire!
- I receive this as a Christmas present. I couldn’t wait to open it and put it together. My 7 year old so helped as well. Very easy to put together.
- I really love the Lego architecture sets and have built most of them, especially the Frank Lloyd Wright edition, and as a native Londoner I was very keen to see what the Lego team had done to capture a building that I used to walk past at least 3 times a week. Regrettably I was very disappointed on so many levels. While Lego could have done so much with this world landmark it really fell short in my opinion. I find the detail lacking compared to other sets and even the color is far from the real building. Maybe the Lego team just didn’t do their research, maybe they were just trying to cut costs or maybe their choice of a small scale limited their ability to provide a high quality set. The build itself was not at all challenging and the result is not very impressive. I have a 8 year old boy that could have easily created something similar in no time at all. Sadly I will not be recommending this set to fellow architecture builders and don’t rate it as good value for the money. Sorry Lego.
