  1. Neat. You'd have to work on the swapped color versions a bit more and use the white roll-cage windscreens. It doesn't come in dk. red or yellow. I'm betting the domes don't either.
  2. I've been modifying my 42039 (24 hrs racecar) to be remote controlled with an sbrick and was wondering if the power functions light unit will work for that set? I don't have any of them, so I'm not sure if the wires are long enough to reach both light sections in the front (or two sets of PF lights one front and back). Thanks in advance! P.S. I just got my 1st sbrick last week and they are amazing. Now I want another.
  3. Unfortunately, it's really hard to say as we may be talking over a decade since this mod was shown. Before cheese slopes and bricks with side stud (only headlights and technic bricks / half pin were available). I did it with my 4504 Falcon and at the time there were plenty of photos to make it happen. I do recall having to use a little superglue as there was a section that didn't connect well. Here is my old Brickshelf gallery for Flail's Falcon, though it's so old that I no longer know the account info for it: http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=375458 (it even had a toilet!)
  4. This is somewhat unrelated to the topic, but I've noticed that the OP's Technic book is being listed on ebay as a PDF from time to time. I don't know if that means it has been copied and converted (eg: stolen?).
  5. No, though I'm just getting into Technic with motors and such.
  6. Has anyone made actual instructions for adding more motors plus receivers to the model? I would certainly be interested even if they were for a small fee. Regular LDD files can be tricky to use the instruction guide due to so much odd placement of parts. Especially for huge models.
  7. Good luck to everyone that participated. I found it to be very difficult to choose only 6, but here are my choices: 3: 10 23: 6 13: 4 16: 3 27: 2 20: 1
  8. That is pretty freaky with the red eyes. Lego's version pales in comparison. Kudos!
  9. Okay, I finished building the main model, though I have a question about a function. What does the lock/ neutral/ unlock feature do? Neutral allows the lower conveyor to move freely, but I don't see the functional difference between lock and unlock.
  10. People seem to have issues with functionality, though I don't know if this is due to builder errors or poor model design. That's why I'm asking for tips.
  11. I've read that many people seem to have issues with this set and was wondering if anyone had tips or suggestions for building 42055? Maybe you encountered something you would do differently (regular gear instead of clutch, etc). Beyond the scope of take it slow, pay attention, and check your gear connections. Hopefully, I'll find time to build it soon, though finals are next week. BTW- this looks like the craziest set I've ever seen and the largest in piece count for me.
  12. I'm reasonably sure I did all of those things and it didn't work. :? I'm reasonably sure I did all of those things and it didn't work. :? Deactivated popup blocker test (failed): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lzB5oqVrmao
  13. Thanks! Though I still don't understand how to do it. I must not be pasting the link in the right place.
  14. That doesn't work. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lzB5oqVrmao
  15. I'm trying to embed my youtube video like others have done for their contest entries to no avail. Would anyone explain how this is done? I followed the FAQ (media tag) which didn't work, then someone told me that the straight link worked (but didn't). I'm not tech savvy, so in basic terms would be preferable. This is also my first time with both a contest and making a youtube video. Thank you!
