To purchase a set of instructions, first browse through the Instructions menu to find the model you want. Then click on the yellow PayPal button to make your purchase. (You will need a PayPal account.)
After payment you will be sent a password code. This may take up to 24 hours, as I must manually confirm payment before sending the code. (Contact me via the Contact page if you do not receive a code, or if there is any other problem with your order.) Please note that this code will be sent to the email address associated with your PayPal account unless you specify an alternative address during purchase. Then search under the Downloads menu to find the corresponding page for your purchase and enter your code to access the instruction files.
WHAT AM I PURCHASING?
HOW DO I BUY THE INSTRUCTIONS?
The download pages contain links to downloadable instructions in both PDF and MPD/LDR format (unless stated otherwise). The PDF instructions are created in LPub4 from LDraw files, and contain a logical sequence of building steps with parts callouts and sub-model assemblies just like real LEGO instruction booklets. You will also find a pictorial parts list at the end. Check out the free instructions for examples.
The MPD/LDR LDraw files are digital models which can be viewed and edited in the LDraw software package (similar to LEGO's Digital Designer and available for free from LDraw.org). These files can be viewed in View Mode (F2) to serve as stepped building instructions, and can also be used to generate text-based parts lists for ordering parts.
CAN I BUY ANY ACTUAL MODELS?
No. At present only digital instruction files are available for purchase. However, you can still build these models from your own parts collection, or by using the parts lists provided in your purchased instructions to order the required parts online.
WHERE CAN I GET THE PARTS?
You can use the BrickLink website to order any parts that you need. Enter the parts shown in the pictorial or text-based parts lists from your purchased instructions into a wanted list in BrickLink, and then search the global network of LEGO resellers to find stores offering the parts you require.
