    I recently dropped a couple hundred $$$ on some large bins of misc lego and that has been taking alot of my time sorting it.

    Just picked up another Model Team (5590). I sort of have this one already. It's at my parent's house, but they won't let me take it (save for grand kids apparently), so I bought my own :p

    Doesn't come with box, but the price was right and it looks like it's pretty much complete, so I shouldn't have to track down too many pieces to make it complete. The main thing is that it appears to come with all of the more rare parts that could be hard to find or expensive if they weren't included.

    Nice pics :) That last one looks like a bunch of Blacktron sets put together or something. I usually like stuff with wheels, but I do like the Blacktron sets that are spacecraft as well.

    Finished my 5590 this weekend. Here it is before the helicopter was done:

    All completed and a iPhone 6 infront for reference on the size. I love this set. So awesome :)

    As someone with a keen eye might be able to see someone put the decals on the wrong door. The red stripe on the helicopter should be the left door on the truck. In all the set was missing some decals and about 7 pieces. I was able to pull 4 pieces from my spare pieces I have. The remaining 3 pieces that are missing will be easy to find. It also had all these extra pieces with the set:

    Definitely happy with the purchase :)

    Bump, but it's Amazon Prime day, and there are some good deals on Lego, if anyone sees this. I just picked up this one for $19 today
