Step-by-Step: How to Build Your First LEGO Plastic Model

Building LEGO sets is a fun and creative activity that can be a great way to spend your free time while developing your skills. If you're new to the world of LEGO sets, you may find it difficult to get started. This blog will provide you with a simple and easy-to-follow guide on how to build your first LEGO plastic model. Ready? Let's do it!

Step 1: Choosing the right kit

The first and most important step is to choose a suitable kit for beginners. I recommend starting with a smaller kit, which has a lower number of pieces. You can choose from a variety of themes, such as cityscapes, vehicles, or animals. A good example would be LEGO City or the LEGO Creator series.

Step 2: Prepare Your Workspace

Find a comfortable and well-lit place where you can work undisturbed. Make sure you have enough space to sort the pieces and that your workspace is clean and organized. I recommend using small plastic bowls or boxes to sort the pieces by color or shape.

Step 3: Open the box and sort the pieces

Open the box and take out all the puzzle bags and the instruction manual. Divide the pieces by type and color, making them easier to find as you build. This step may seem tedious, but it will save you a lot of time and frustration later on.

Step 4: Read the instructions carefully

Before you start the assembly, go through the entire manual. LEGO instructions are usually very well illustrated and easy to understand. Each step is described in detail, so you don't have to worry about getting lost.

Step 5: Start Building!

Now you're ready to build. Follow the step-by-step tutorial and watch the pictures. During the first steps, focus on connecting the pieces correctly. If you make a mistake, don't worry, LEGO sets are very easy to disassemble and you can correct your progress at any time.

Step 6: Review Your Progress

After each step, check that you have placed all the pieces correctly and that your model matches the picture in the instructions. This way, you'll minimize mistakes and be sure you're doing it right.

Step 7: Finalize the model

As you get closer to completing the model, you can look forward to the final result. The last steps may include attaching details such as stickers or small decorative elements. Make sure that you have firmly connected all the pieces and that your model is stable.

Step 8: Enjoy Your Creation

Congratulations! You've just built your first LEGO plastic model. Now you can enjoy, display or play with your creation. If you enjoyed building, you can take on more complex models and improve as you go.


Building LEGO sets is a great way to develop creativity, patience and attention to detail. We hope you found this tutorial helpful and that you enjoy building your first plastic model. Remember that practice makes perfect, so don't be afraid to try new and more complex projects. Good luck and have fun building!
