Dug out my childhood LEGOs from storage and have the urge to build something. It’s 2019. There has to be a tech-y way to do this.

I’m looking for a website or app (or both!) that will let me inventory my collection and then show official and unofficial instructions of stuff I can build. Bonus points if it could also display instructions for sets I can almost build (with a list of what parts I’m missing).

Peeron! Parts lists for official sets and many, many instruction manuals.

The young Lego fan in the house recommends Brickset.

Rebrickable is good, if you know what sets you were starting with (or are up for doing inventory)

Rebrickable is pretty straightforward. And it was started by a guy who was trying to do exactly what you want to do - inventory parts!

I believe that if you can figure out the model number, the Lego site still has instructions on the old stuff.

(...says the forty-something that just spent three hours modifying the Speed Champions GT40 to be two plates lower...)
