this was my first venture into the Architecture range and after my experience it won't be my last. I thoroughly enjoyed each section of the build, learn a few new techniques and ended up with a model which as received the honour of being displayed outside of my Lego room which must mean it's a good looking build.
I built this set with a friend and it was really challenging. The most challenging part was the board and the patterns,but it was all worth it. The set was beautiful with the pattern and the detail+fountain definitely recommend for either older age its single for 12 or younger I would recommend that you build with a friend or 2 friends.
GREAT kit!! Lego is the best!! So much thought put into each one of there products
This is my second architecture set and I'm simply impressed by the design after I've finished building it. I think this set is a very nice set to have as a remembrance of 'I've been there before!' set. I think the design of this set is iconic enough to be recognized by those who have been there but its an eye opener to those who haven't. For MOCers, this set packs lots of trans clear and tan pieces but the price per piece for this set is quite expensive I would say but you would learn a few techniques of MOCing micro scale buildings.
The build time was very long but it does incorporate a lot of the details of the Palace. One thing that separates this set from other Architecture sets is the other area. We normally don't see these minor details but the fountain and miniature vehicles are a nice addition.
21029 Buckingham Palace was reviewed in issue 30 of Blocks Magazine.
Whether you live in London, are obsessed with the Royal Family, or just appreciate design and history, this construction set makes a beautiful display piece. The finished set has lots of great detail, which LEGO fans will appreciate, and the instruction booklet is filled with information and photographs about the history and architectural details of Buckingham Palace that older fans will enjoy reading and browsing, but that will also be fun for younger LEGO builders to read and discover. The only thing missing from this LEGO set? Prince Harry!
I'm pleased that #21029 Buckingham Palace was my first traditional Architecture set: I truly enjoyed the build, the techniques were interesting, and I love the finished product. I would highly recommend this set for new and established LEGO Architecture fans. Yes, it's a great value, but more importantly, it's a great LEGO set!
At first glance, you could simply recognise the iconic design. It does not take much of your time and it does make a fine display table piece.
Like most sets in the theme, the set is quite pricey for what you get, and if you don't appreciate LEGO models at this scale or are not a fan of LEGO Architecture, this isn't one for you and you're better off buying other sets. The elements included, while numerous are also very basic and miniscule, so it doesn't exactly make for the best parts pack after you're done with it.
This is a lovely set, and it's fun to build. I particularly enjoyed the construction of the Palace frontage and roof — some nice techniques that deliver great detail. Although I was mildly irritated by the half-plate gaps in the frontage, they're barely visible in the final model. In fact, the only thing that disappoints is the lack of a printed tile for the flag — this seems like a missed opportunity to provide the final crowning glory.
If you're a fan of famous buildings, an Anglophile, or enjoy the LEGO Architecture line, the Buckingham Palace set is definitely worth picking up. At only $49.99 USD for 780 pieces, if you want to add a bunch of Brick Yellow to your collections, this is a good choice for you too. It's a charming display piece with a fun build and a solid design.
The model is nice, taking in count the addition of the external complements, as I explained before. It doesn't take so long to build it and the complexity is low/medium. If you have ever been there, you can quickly recognize it and see the similarities.
Buckingham Palace is an Architecture set and fans of the series will generally buy this set, build the model and display it. It is beautifully presented with the luxury box and instructions with details and coffee-table-book-feel, so also works as a ‘London Souvenir' or a gift to an adult. This is probably not a set that AFOLs will buy for parts, nor to create a mega-sized Buckingham Palace by combining three of the sets together.
I think this is a really nice set. First and foremost the designer has done an excellent job of capturing the essence of Buckingham Palace at such a small scale, while also managing to incorporate many recognisable features into the design. Additionally, in contrast to the majority of Architecture offerings, some detail from the area surrounding the building is also included; for me this greatly increases the appeal of the set and makes it a pleasing display piece.
