This is a nice model to build and looks ok once complete I feel that it needed a little bit of a polish up though the steering wheel and gear lever both to big, there no sun visors rear view mirror or wipers but seems there was meant to be, the bonnet sits proud and roof not finished off on the corners, the mini badges should not be stickers, spear wheel dose not match the other 4 wheels and last of all it has a black exhaust not silver. I know it seems a lot and bit picky but this is an expert model and has a steep price to go with it I felt that it was easy to build and did not take to long. Over all this is not much harder than most of the standard Lego creator sets that iv built.

Comments about LEGO Creator Ex MINI Cooper Building Set 10242:

From Son; Great set, had fun building it when i got it for christmas 2 years ago, then decided to twin turbocharge and supercharge the standard A-Series engine. i built a rally interior and mucked around with different versions of that MINI ending with a drag MINI that was too far gone to be rebuilt back to the semi-standard condition that it was in before i built it as a drag MINI so i just pulled it apart and it sat, in pieces in my LEGO box. About a month ago, mum decided i had to rebuild the MINI so i got the larger pieces of MINI (Doors, Roof, Rear panels, etc.) and built a basic MINI. I then thought, Why not go completely stupid and put a Technic V8 in the middle of it and make it AWD. so i did, and in keeping with my tradition for the poor MINI the V8 has twin turbos and the supercharger off the Technic Drag Racer. I also decided to add working headlights, taillights and indicators. but i might remove them as it makes the inside of the MINI a bit of a mess of wires. All in all though, an awesome set! Now, lets see if i can turbocharge the VW Type 1 "Kombi"

The detail on this model is fantastic and the quality is excellent. Easy to follow instructions - if you have some Lego build experience. I would definitely recommend this to all as a great way to spend the cold winter evenings.

Fantastic present for Dad

By Craigganmore

Comments about LEGO Creator Ex MINI Cooper Building Set 10242:

I bought this as a Christmas present for my father who, in the 1960s and 70s, used to drive around Europe in one of these. He's not a signed up 'Adult Fan Of Lego' and so I thought it was a bit of a risk buying him something that is a bit of a toy. I shouldn't have worried - he really enjoyed the absorbing build and is really pleased with the completed model. I think his photos attached show how pleased he is with the results.

My Dream Car

By GoodOldJR

Comments about LEGO Creator Ex MINI Cooper Building Set 10242:

Ever since I saw my first Mini at an antique car show, I was hooked. Then I notice that Lego has one in my favorite color? I had to build it. Overall a very nice build that most people could do in an afternoon. It is nice to see that the engine was mounted transversely. A detail some might overlook that gave the original Mini its massive cabin. Being able to set up a Lego picnic after a morning cruise is a nice touch that could have just as easily been forgotten. As for things forgotten, an actual spare tire has been replaced in many cars, but not this Mini. I also thought that, since I am an US citizen, my Mini should be left hand drive. The swap was very easily achieved even if the instructions told me to make it right hand drive. I do have a few nits to pick though. The front windshield, while acceptable as a model piece, has some slop that means the kids will get pushed away from this build. The roof has a few sharp angles that, while trademark Lego, might leave some hard core model builders passing this up. On the side of the body, some of the printed pin striping doesn't quite match up. Not enough to throw off the aesthetic, but enough to notice. To me, the most grievous omission is the cabin floor. The plates stop a stud away from the door. I took a few plates and filled them in and I know the old real life Minis were not luxury vehicles, but this seems like an oversight. Overall, this is a fantastic build. I think this would keep a teenager engaged for an afternoon and it give me a very enjoyable two hours. This will be proudly displayed on my bookshelf. Thank you Lego for a wonderful model.
