Day #3622Title: 918 Has Landed!
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH
Notes: This little spaceship brings back so many happy memories. It is the LL918 Space Transport and was released in 1979 as part of the first wave of what is now known as the Classic Space range. I had one as a child and loved it – the height of cool to a space-obsessed 10 year old. But just before I went to university, I decided I had grown out of LEGO and sold all my Classic Space sets to a friend’s little brother. Oh how I berate myself for that, 30 years later! But eBay is a wonderful thing, and my bid on this old friend wasn’t too outrageous, so I was delighted with it arrived safely in the post this morning. It’s in pretty good shape for its age. I might have a little nostalgic swoosh every now and then, but it won’t be played with too much.
