The folks over at No Starch Press has sent me an early review copy of Tiny LEGO Wonders: Build 40 Surprisingly Realistic Mini-Models! by Mattia Zamboni. The book consists of 208 pages and as the title states, instructions for 40 mini build. The book will be available on July 30 but you can pre-order now on Amazon for 30% off the list price.
The book is separated into different categories depending on what type of vehicle the builds are about such as trains, airplanes, and boats. Each build consists of a few pages which also includes the parts needed to create it. Similar to other book instructions, the construction is condensed into a few steps with multiple pieces going into each step.
I must say that some of the vehicle builds are pretty nice looking especially with a few of the cars with the small wheels. They actually give sort of a sleek look to them.
If you’re into building minimalistic cities, Tiny LEGO Wonders: Build 40 Surprisingly Realistic Mini-Models! may be a good resource for you, There are many different builds and may provide inspiration for you to create your own miniature vehicles. The words are very minimal as there isn’t that much of a need for them. The instructions may be a little confusing as they do incorporate a number of pieces for each step. The biggest offender of this are the ship builds. Other than that, I think it’s a pretty solid book.
