Advent 2016 Day 14

The 14th day of the LEGO Advent Calendars brings us two mini models – a helicopter (City) and a Jedi fighter (Star Wars) – and a little tea set (Friends). Christmas Build Up gives us a cute kitty kat, and I used leftovers to build a Christmas tree.

Here’s the helicopter for City. Perhaps that’s what yesterday’s minifig was doing with a remote control – it’s a drone!

In Friends we get a tea set to go with yesterday’s chairs.

The Star Wars model is a nice mini Jedi fighter.

Here are the three models together.

Advent 2016 Day 14

To build the kitty I had to take apart yesterday’s robot, as they both use the same brick to hold the eyes. I don’t like these closed eyes oriented this way, but this is how they said to build it. I would turn them around 180 degrees. As for the tail, the instructions show it pointing straight back, but if a cat is happy it should be pointing up.

[EDIT 12/23] I realized today that I had accidentally started building models off by one day, starting at Day 14. I accidentally built model #15 on the 14th, and continued off by one until today when I discovered myself building the final model! This should have been the Day 15 model, but I built it a day early. To make up for it, I’m building the Day 14 model on the 23rd and posting a correction on each of the days from 14-23. Sorry about the mistake!

Christmas Build Up 2016 Day 14

With the leftovers I built this Christmas tree with presents arrayed at its base.
