LEGO This is Fine

March 28, 2023

I recently found legotruman's LEGO Ideas project, This is Fine. It's a LEGO version of the classic This is Fine meme.

It's an awesome idea, and the model looks great, but it's obviously not going to get approved – a LEGO model featuring a dog in a burning building is not going to be approved by LEGO.

But... I wanted it. So I got to reverse-engineering the model from the images on the project page, using the BrickLink Studio app.

Having designed(?) it, I then ordered the parts through BrickLink from a few different vendors. Here's the results! (it's missing the window piece here, but I've since added that).

Having not built a LEGO model since I was a kid, it was a lot of fun to put this together and learn BrickLink Studio. I'm not sure if I'll do any more, but I'm definitely going to keep an eye out for more LEGO Ideas projects that I can reverse-engineer and build myself!

And a custom intro page in my instructions manual:
