Lepin Parisian Restaurant: Not One But Two!


In May, I bought another Lepin Parisian Restaurant 15010 from Aliexpress because it was only $45 USD and that included shipping.  Normally this set costs around $65 to $70 USD due to the extra cost of DHL shipping.  The Aliexpress store/drop shipper got around the shipping costs by sending me the building blocks in two separate packages.  Each package only weighed around 1.5 Kg, so they could send it via China e-Packet service.  I think if packages are under 2 Kg, Aliexpress sellers can use e-Packet, otherwise anything heavier has to use DHL.



Surprisingly, I got all the parts for the Lepin Parisian Restaurant, but I had already decided that I wanted to modify the newer Parisian Restaurant.  Here is a list of the primary modifications I made to the most recent set:

1.  Reverse elevation
2.  Change the building colour
3.  Change the front entrance

I made other changes too, but I'll save all the good stuff and pics for a more detailed blog post, coming soon!
