LEGO Taj Mahal, complete!

The Man-Cub finished the LEGO Taj Mahal! All 5,922 pieces (though we lost two -- and were able to figure work-arounds). He built this entirely by himself -- the only assistance he received was in sorting the pieces.

We were also surprised by how few spare pieces were included. 18 pounds of LEGOs, nearly 6,000 total pieces, and just 27 spares (if we count the spare 1x2 we used to make up for the lost clear 1x1). That's less than half of 1%....

Now to figure out where to keep this masterpiece -- and what challenge to tackle next!



LEGO Taj Mahal, Ph. 4 in Progress

Jarrett is nearly done with the walls of the central building. Then the beams and roof, a couple dozen arches, and he'll be finished with this 5,922-piece monster!



LEGO Taj Mahal, Stages 2 & 3

The four minarets and the central dome are now complete. J-man now has only the central building and its four domes remaining.



LEGO Taj Mahal, Stage 1

Four more stages (and another 4,000+ pieces) to go! J-man is building this solo; I've only helped sort some of the 5,922 pieces so he won't have to spend too much time searching.
