  1. Hi everyone -- I'm wondering if the following advice is still valid now that LIBs appear to be classified as B-Models. May I submit an instruction PDF as a change request for a B-Model? Will it be hosted on Rebrickable? I am working on recreating several classic "back-of-box" builds with no official instructions. Some of these are non-trivial and would greatly benefit from an instruction PDF.
  2. I went through a similar exercise a few years ago: I had a box full of mixed up Classic Space sets and I wanted to identify the sets from the loose parts. This wasn't easy, but I was able to find a few uncommon parts and locate all the sets that had those parts. With the small number of candidate sets that I identified, I could inspect their inventory and see if it matched what I had in my box. Of course, I started to remember owning certain sets and that helped eliminate candidates from the search. If you can, post a some photos of the bag and we may be able to help identify its origin!
  3. I thought this might be the case too, but I tested this quickly by duplicating a set in my set lists. The global part count went up by the total number of pieces in the set, plus the set's spare parts. On a side note, I think I can leverage the custom list functionality after all. All I need to do is copy the spare parts into a custom list, then keep the list open in a separate browser tab when looking for replacement lost pieces. I think this will work quite well, albeit knowing to look for the spare parts in the custom list.
  4. Hi everyone! The spare parts that come with new sets are ideal for replacing arbitrary lots parts; I'd like to be able to search my loose and spare parts for any other parts that I've marked as lost. What is a good way to manage inventory to accomplish this? I currently manage one set list for all of my sets, and one parts list for loose parts. The loose parts list are strictly loose parts -- not the spare parts included with an arbitrary set. When I view the part summary of a lost part, I can see if it appears in my loose part list or any of my sets. However, I can't tell if the lost part is a spare part without checking each of the sets that it appears in. I though I might make finding lost parts easier by creating a new parts list for all of my sets' spare parts. This works, but unfortunately adds the list's parts to the total owned parts giving an inaccurate count/value. Not ideal, but usable. Furthermore, I tried using a custom parts list and while these parts don't get added to the global total, the custom parts list doesn't show up in the part summary for searching. I suppose I could also abandon using one set list and create part lists for each set. Any suggestions how I can approach this? I suspect I'm overlooking something straightforward! Perhaps a feature request to show a system-managed "Spare Parts from Sets" list in the parts summary might be useful to several users.
