Topic: Legoland Weetabix House Set 1484 Recreation

When visiting an Oxfam in Penzance, Cornwall, I stumbled upon an old biscuit tin full of vintage Lego. Included was the original instructions manual for Weetabix promotional set 1484 - Weetabix House. Once I had bought it, I went through all the pieces included in the old tin to see if I could recreate the vintage set, to find that it only had about 85% of the pieces included. So, with the help of some Lego I already owned, I managed to piece together the complete set with 95%ish accuracy. As you can see, once completed, I still had loads of extra Lego pieces from the tin spare.

It still had all the original parcels included, which I really love!

This comparison shows that I had most of the pieces necessary to complete the set at my disposal. However, a couple of times I did have to improvise. For example, I didn't have a car rooftop in blue, so I had to use one 2x4 flat piece, and two 2x3's.
