BrilliantGot this for Christmas, had been looking at these architects sets for some time & was really pleased to get this one as a present.
This is a large model with over 1000 pieces, inside the box are a number of plastic bags with the bricks, I transfered each bag to a zip lock bag to make sorting easier, I also used a plastic tray to sort out all the small pieces, of which there are a lot. The provided book gives great history of the building & great for the build with its detailed step by step guide.
I decided to build this in stages to make the build last longer & to get the most from it. Due to the Large number of small parts this is best suited to the slightly older child, my 7 year old grandson helped me with the final stages of building which he really enjoyed.
Once completed I noticed that along the front & down both sides are a lot of windows & I thought it would be nice to try to get some lights into it, I turned a single brick at the rear which had a hole in it but was turned so the hole did not show I took the model apart & turned this brick so that I could feed the wire thru. I used 3.6 volt LEDs you can see in the picture the result.

The State of Our Union IS STRONG!Wow! What a great build! I had done the NY City Architecture build in the past and found it to be rather stressful for various reasons, so I had concerns going into building the US Capitol Building. Those concerns quickly diminished as I started building this kit. It was just a fun experience from beginning to end.
My one complaint -- that the bags for the Architecture kits are not numbered -- was NEVER really a factor with this build since several of the bags in this kit only contain one type of brick, which made finding parts very quick and easy. The build flowed very logically from beginning to end, and I know I sound like a broken record, but it was just FUN!!!
I love the attention that went into this kit! There are interior details that you cannot really see, but I thought it was amazing that they were included in the kit anyway. I wish I had taken photos throughout the build process so I could show the rotunda, but I had SO MUCH FUN that I didn't want to stop!
Simply put, this is a great kit for anyone looking to build one of the Architecture sets. The finished result is AMAZING, and the build really is a pleasurable experience! Well done Lego!!!
--As a side note: I need to mention the manual. It is very beautifully done. I was impressed with the Lego Ideas Saturn V manual, but the manual for the Capitol Building really is a sight to see. It is beautifully printed, and just contributes to the overall pleasure of the experience.

Best Model YetThe US Capitol Building model was a surprisingly fun build. I expected there to be many repetitive steps in it like with the White House or the Louvre, but everything was just a little bit different and kept a fun amount of excitement as you saw how the designers executed the details. The really fun surprise was the detachable dome that reveals the rotunda below with the statues inside!
Despite the large number of pieces, the set was a relative quick build. The base has a lot of details when it comes to the lawn, sidewalks, and flooring of the rotunda, but after that, the set is a relatively easy and exciting build. I own the entire Architecture series and this has quickly become a showstopper set among them all.

Good, but not big enough!I really enjoyed building this set, however I was disappointed that the back of the building is basically cut off. I decided to divert from the instruction booklet and use my own pieces to create an 'updated' version, which includes a centered dome and the other half of the building, so the model is complete, not just a front view. what if they did this with the Eiffel Tower? Who wants an Eiffel Tower with only 2 legs? Still, it was fun to build, and I'm excited to turn it into something more detailed and technically correct.
