x-no-archive: yesI got this set when I was a kid and my dad couldn't build it, and I was too young to do it. No wonder, it had 346 parts. WTF were they thinking? Seriously, were those early LEGO kits meant for older kids ?
Anyway, for 33 years I thought that engine piece in his hand was a gun. Did anyone else ?
A few years later when I was a little older, they got LEGO just right, not too simple, not too complex. I loved that triangle shaped space ship, and was very proud I could build it all by myself. I wanted the more expensive one, but I got the cheaper one and loved it.
Wish I kept them... Sniff...
