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.Play Experiencerating.prefix5rating.postfixValue for Moneyrating.prefix5rating.postfixBuild Time: 6 daysBuilding Experience: Intermediate LEGO builderWas this helpful?55
- 5 days agorating.prefix5rating.postfixThe State of Our Union IS STRONG!BryanMW2012 | 35-44I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfWow! 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.Level of Difficultyrating.prefix4rating.postfixValue for Moneyrating.prefix5rating.postfixBuild Time: 4 hrsBuilding Experience: Intermediate LEGO builderWas this helpful?55
- 5 days agorating.prefix4rating.postfixGreat CapitolXenomorph426 | 35-44I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfLoved the build, even with all the 1x1 bricks. Only complaint is half the building is missing. I work by the Capital and I see the west side more than the east and to have it left out of the build was a major let down. Would really like a work around to finish the building.Play Experiencerating.prefix2rating.postfixLevel of Difficultyrating.prefix4rating.postfixValue for Moneyrating.prefix4rating.postfixBuild Time: 2 hrs 26 minsBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?45
- 2 months agorating.prefix4rating.postfixVery pleasedJamesstar147 | 25-34I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfAfter spending a lot of time building modular buildings I quite fancied a go at these. My first was the Eiffel Tower which was larger than expected. I bought this set as it looked like a nice big set given the piece count. I was not disappointed! A lot larger than expected and looks superb on my side unit. Very pleased and have already ordered 2 more from the series. Only small niggle is, would be nice if LEGO could keep the base plates more consistent so that they line up along side one another. But am tackling that one myself ;-) Well done LEGO!Play Experiencerating.prefix4rating.postfixLevel of Difficultyrating.prefix4rating.postfixValue for Moneyrating.prefix4rating.postfixBuild Time: 2 hrs 15 minsBuilding Experience: Expert LEGO builderWas this helpful?45
