I was thinking today and devised a method to save a one to two hundred dollars!! I am currently figuring out how much money will be necessary to finish it, yes FINISH!!!
My method of saving money could be considered cheating, but when I'm saving over a hundred dollars I am willing to let that slide. Certain pieces had to be white due to their sides being shown, but I figured I could buy gray pieces instead (which are much cheaper and in greater quantity) and spray paint the edges white (and all the lego purists following or knowing of this blog's existence faint from horror). This could save at LEAST a hundred dollars, allowing me to finish this much faster.
Very exciting, for me at least!!
