My first book: Build 10 cool Vehicles!
Over the past few years quite a few people have requested building instructions for some of my alternates. Well, now you have the chance to finally get them for 10 iconic models in this high quality book: The LEGO Build-it Book Vol.1: Amazing Vehicles!
About this creation
After several people contacted me for building instructions, about a year ago I was approached by Mattia Zamboni, a graphic artist, who was so excited that he already started to work on some instructions for my models. Unfortunately however, his versions were not optimal...
The work he presented was so impressive and way beyond my skills that we agreed that it would be best to combine our strength and make the best possible book that we could imagine. I would create the instructions and help with conceptual art, after which Mattia dressed things up and designed the final layout.
More than a year later we can proudly present our first official result: The LEGO Build-it Book Vol.1: Amazing Vehicles, which is coming out in June, published by No Starch Press.

Pre-ordering is already possible at several online bookstores or at the publisher itself.

Here are the 10 iconic models that are covered in the book: Off-Roader, Go-Kart, Muscle Car, Stroller, Multi-Purpose Truck (Unimog), Historic Racer, Classic Car, Wheel Loader, Street Rod, and the Rescue Truck. Furthermore all those models are built from the same common bricks, so you do not have to buy loads of sets or extra parts!




To introduce readers to the techniques used in the models, some theory pages with explanation are included!




The biggest part of the book covers how to build the different models with high quality, step-by-step instructions, revealing all the secrets behind them!




Each model is introduced with some nice photo realistic CGI's/ renderings, including some notes of the design features!




To make sure that we deliver the best experience possible, all models went through a thorough review, and were optimised as much as possible both from a construction and building point of view!




This is the back cover of the book with 136 full colour pages throughout!




What are you waiting for? This is your chance to learn a lot of new tricks and build some amazing models! You get even a discount when you pre-order now!
Just go here.

And another book is in the pipeline, covering how to build even more cool vehicles...

P.S. I finally also have my own website up and running, although it still needs quite some work. Check it out at: www.NKubate.com

Wow dat ziet er heel gaaf uit. Sterk concept, daar raak ik wel enthousiast van, leuk om met zoonlief te ondernemen en zelf te doen. Een wens of verkapt verzoek of je de serie zou willen uitbreiden naar amazing space vehicles voor de ruimtebouwers. Maar misschien is dat niet jou ding.

Hi Nathanaël, I would like to take the opportunity to officially thank you, since working with you has been really great. With your models it has been love at first sight, so the opportunity I received to provide them a proper treatment has been a true privilege. To everyone else I can just assure that you won't be disappointed. The goal since the beginning has been to create a very high quality book to be collected and our work has been driven by pure passion. Up to you guys now to check whether we hit our target. Thank you & enjoy ! - MZ
