Own your own

“This took me approx 33 hours solid to build for my sons 6th birthday. It’s a great looking model but I am very dissapointed with how stable the finished model is. The grey square blocks on the outside if the stadium fall off if you just look at them! So i think i am going to use superglue on the model which i didnt want to do. Also its a little to big. You will struggle to find a shelf or cabinet to fit this on in the average home.”
