After what seemed like an eternity after the rest of the world had gotten theirs, my Shop@Home order with the Parisian Restaurant (10243) finally arrived in my little outpost in Brisbane, Australia, last night.
What can I say that the title of this post already doesn’t? It is simply gorgeous.
I love the colour, the kitchen, the window trims on the ground floor and the first floor, the dark blue roof, the white decorations on the roof, the hideaway bed, the outdoor seating area, the entrance, the scooter, the new bowl part in dark red, olive green bricks, the curtains, etc, etc.
With so many details and interesting techniques, the Parisian Restaurant was also a great modular to build.
I only have one gripe and that is that my shells didn’t want to stay closed. The picture above is taken on a time delay with me holding the shells closed until just before the shot was taken.
PS. My image shows a few more minifigures than actually come with the set. My daughter insisted that all the girls should have dinner at the Parisian Restaurant. The photo doesn’t include the ones that were lining up outside for their turn!
PSS. My original title for this post was going to be just “Perfection”, but in French. However, according to Google Translate, the translation for “perfection” is “perfection”??
