So beyond the many Echo devices I saw this at £51 on Amazon and couldn't resist. It's hopefully on its way tomorrow :D

Always fancied the Ferrari F40 kit, although a muscle car appeals to me more. Lights would be cool, could certainly weigh up the idea.

Safe from the dogs especially, who might see it as an irresistible chew toy, lol.

That's exactly what happened with our Echo dot, one of the new round ones, far too toy shaped and irresistible when they managed to knock it on the floor. Suffice to say it sits on a higher shelf now despite being quite chewed :rolleyes:.

Have just spent the afternoon building my Dodge Charger, check it out below.

Unpacked ready to build.

Building more of the frame on to the chassis including the shaft to control the steering and the prop shaft underneath that.

Bodywork starting to take shape.

Front end taking shape. Unfortunately I'm missing two air intakes for the supercharger as the Lego kit was missing two of the required pieces. I have ordered the parts via the Lego website with their missing bricks option so will hopefully get those soon.
