As you know, I’m a great fan of Microscale buildings and have had my eye on the Mini Modulars (10230) set for some time. It’s long been out of production, having first been introduced in 2012. So the only hope was scouring eBay for a copy. I struck lucky and won one at a reasonable price.
There were a surprising number of pieces (1356 apparently), and the instructions came in two parts, one to build three models and the other to do the two others.
Some of the building techniques here were really original (at least, to me), with plenty of SNOT going on, and ingenious ways of representing bigger details at tiny scale. It was fascinating.
My “complete” set had a few tiny pieces missing, which I was able to pick up from BrickLink soon after. I can’t complain too loudly given the price I paid. The only other slight issue was with some of the 1×1 cheese slopes which tended to develop hairline cracks when they were pushed even gently onto studs. I’ve never had that happen with other LEGO I own, cheese or otherwise. Perhaps it stems from how the previous owner stored or displayed the models, I don’t really know. Anyway, you can’t tell unless you scrutinise the build at very close range, so I’m not going to worry about it too much. Don’t they look splendid?
