MOC-82591 Medieval Church Brick Set Review (sent for review by Let Bricks)

I was recently sent the Let Bricks Medieval Church set MOC-82591 for review. This has been designed by Peter Keith, and I was sent a hand-picked set - so I do have some errors which are unlikely to appear in the final store product. 

This is a 516 piece set, which is a nice build and creates a really attractive little chapel...

As it's only a 516 piece set it doesn't need to have numbered bags, and the instructions are on a USB key, so although you don't have a paper copy, you can access them on any device - and enlarge them at will.

The instructions are clear and easy to follow, although I did spot a couple of errors - places where steps have been missed and you need to really guess what to do. I didn't actually encounter any real issues with this. If you are a brick builder then it's fairly familiar and easily sorted.

The build has some nice features - I particularly like the cracks in the walls. They're cleverly done and look very effective.

The stained glass windows are also a very clever use of available parts and look excellent, even allowing coloured light through into the model.

My parts were hand-picked as this is a brand new set, and I was missing several. I contacted the manufacturer ( who promptly sent out replacements. Stupidly I didn't list them, I chatted. This resulted in me still missing several parts, so my tree for example is not as the designer intended.

The inside of the chapel has a very sweet and simple altar, which can be seen through the doorway. Along with the coloured 'glass' windows, it has a really neat end effect, and a lot of personality.

I did experience around 20 missing parts, and there are some badly picked parts, which meant I was unable to attach my door. As I previously mentioned, I think this is a teething problem and won't be an issue going forward. You can see more in my video review... 

This is a relatively easy build, which is probably suitable for builders aged around 8+, although may appeal more to adult fans. It's a nice addition to any collection of Medieval buildings, or any simple village really. There are several different Medieval models available, and despite the issues I've had with missing/incorrect parts, I would consider them going forward because the designs are very good.

The 516pcs set MOC-82591 Medieval Church is available to buy now from Let Bricks, and retails at $59.99, which is a very fair price for a set of this design and size. 

I was sent my set for review, but as you can probably tell, my review is honest and genuine.
