  1. Ha, ha, even on the side view you display, the main stone appears white. Taking into account the available parts, the reddish brown/brown mixture is the best choice for rendering the various colour of Notre Dame de Strasbourg because, contrary to you, I do not fall into slovenly ways by painting parts . But a white stone is ... just white .
  2. This castle is made using the « pierre de Bourré » a tuffeau stone which is white (and becomes more and more white during the centuries) and should not be tan Could you imagine the Chambord castle in another colour than white .

  4. Thaky you . This MOC is exposed this weekend during Fana'briques 2016 with other Alien's MOCs.
  5. My new MOC, a life size face hugger with its egg FaceHugger and egg by Daniel Stoeffler, on Flickr As you will certainly notice, it is an evolution of the egg and of the facehugger . The facehugger is inpired by the one of AL13N163NA ( ).It will be displayed during the next Fana'briques exhibition in a few days and more photos will come after the exhibition. Enjoy.
  6. That's a review ! An ultimate Review Thanks, Jim. Concerning the price, there are something like 1000 various pins (which cost nearly nothing to TLG) in this set : I found that the 1700 remaining parts are clearly too expensive .
  7. Nice to see that you have build the pair . For the top of the head of R2, you could also use the same build as for BB-8 with a Plate, Modified 2 x 2 with Groove and 1 Stud in Center (ref 87580) instead of the 1x1 plate .
  8. Thank you all. The manta is on BrickBrains : http://brickbrains.com/2016/05/manta-ray-lego-dan_sto/ Mantastic

  10. Hello, I am french and I can help you. Send me a personnal message if you are interested to get my help
  11. If you look carefully at the video, you will see that the third black track for the traction is not present at the slope and the looping. So the motor does not help (it would in fact break) and only the gravity pulls the lok. My calculation fixes the mechanical limit. I would like to know how he came to 70 km/h because it looks overestimated.
  12. The fastest speed is reached at the end of the slope and just before entering the looping. This is why I used the simple conservative mechanical model were potential energy m.g.h is converted into kinetic energy (1/2).m.v2 giving v = SQRT(2.g.h) : you see that the weight and the slope of the track does not play a role. So for h = 2 meters, you have a speed around SQRT(40) nearly equal to 6 m/s = 23 km/h which remains far from the 70 km/h .
  13. Of course, if you take the friction and the wind resistance into account, you will need a higher fall to reach 70 km/h
  14. Interesting and funny. As asked on Youtube, how do you come to 70 km/h ? A falling object (without friction) only accelerated by the gravitation has to fall 19 m to reach such a speed following the mechanical energy conservation : m.v2/2 = m.g.h giving h = v2/(2g). Your height seems to be around 2 m so that the final speed is something like 6 m/s = 23 km/h. OK, we have to add the initial speed but it seems to be relatively small ;).
