Frequently Asked Questions about Amchester LEGO City

Here are a few popular and pre-emptive questions about my LEGO city. Please have a read before sending me any messages!

Can I visit your LEGO city?

I’m afraid the answer is probably no. I work away a lot, and only allow my friends and family to visit.

How many LEGO bricks do you own?

The honest answer is “I don’t know”.

I use Brickset to manage my LEGO set collection, which is now over 1,000 sets, but this is missing quite a bit of data on set sizes (one day I’ll go through and update it!), and a lot of my collection is now in loose parts or built in to custom models. I suspect I own something roughly around 500,000 LEGO bricks now; around 200,000 of these in 60% of the sets Brickset

Can I have instructions for…?

Sorry – I don’t create instructions for my LEGO models. You’re welcome to reverse-engineer my models for personal use (ie, not selling instructions or the designs)┬áif you like.

What is your favourite LEGO set?

I have many favourite LEGO sets, but the one I really love is the 4558 Metroliner train. I wanted this as a child, and finally received it as a present for my 30th birthday.

Can I use your photos for my Twitter / Instagram / Facebook page / blog / website?

Sorry, probably not.
