I've written previously about another nanoblock kit (T-Rex Skeleton) which was fairly large and complex to build. This time around I'm looking a kit that can be put together in as little as 30 minutes yet still looks great. I'm talking about the nanoblock Astronaut kit!

I put this kit together while having my morning coffee. It was fun to assemble and the end result was pretty neat.

This kit is around 120 pieces, which is considered a small kit for nanoblock. Like all small kits it doesn't come in a box, it's just there in a plastic sleeve packaging. I actually think this is a neat way of distributing kits of this size. The bricks and instructions are all inside, essentially as a flat pack.

I'm always amazed by the unusual shapes of bricks that nanoblock kits have. This one was no exception. The single piece bricks were especially interesting.

So lets see the construction itself. The kit starts with building from the base of the torso section of the astronaut and builds up to the helmet.

Once the torso and helmet are done the oxygen tanks are assembled and attached to the back.

This is then followed by the legs.

The final piece is the support structure that is made out of clear bricks.

Here's a time lapse assembly video of the whole build...

After the build I had quite a few pieces left over, this was as expected according to the instructions.
