  1. New video with instructions:
  2. Thank you! I removed the horns. I updated the video, it now has photo instructions.
  3. All done. This version is much simpler than the originals. I will make photo instructions soon. IMG_0934[1] by James Tillson, on Flickr
  4. I have all the bricks, if I can have access to the instructions I will build it. The RC Grand Sport is almost done. I wanted it to be simpler and lighter, the pop up lights, suspension, roof, opening doors and interior are gone. I'm using my favorite PF combo (LiPo, V2, Buggy motor and servo) the performance was amazing but is dropping off now the exterior details are being added.
  5. I had a look at the render (WOW, great work BTW), I think the door is right, the problem is with the roof, it doesn't slope up at the front so it runs through the top of the windscreen. Maybe the lower pivot on the roof structure is one stud too far back?
  6. I'm here and I'm working on a RC version right now. RC 63 Corvette Grand Sport Roadster by James Tillson, on Flickr legolijntje is the best person to ask. He had access to the video on google drive last year and almost completed a set of instructions for the car. There must have been an error somewhere and we couldn't work out why the roof wound fit in LDRAW.
  7. I made photo instructions for the boat. Zombie photos coming soon.
  8. The gear rack and new worm gear is stronger and has a greater range than a large LA (and its red which help with this model). I'm not going to modify any parts but I have thought of a couple of other ways to connect the boom extension to the motor and have drive with steering. Hopefully I can put it all together this weekend.
  9. I had been having a break from lego but when the new worm gear from 42061 came out I wanted to have another go at a spider crane. I want V2 to have the following improvements: 3 services through the turntable 8 way gearbox so boom extension and drive can be connected to the motor Large LA for the out riggers as the small LA just aren't strong enough The easiest way to get the 3 services through the turntable with in the scale height is by drilling out the centres of two 32498 and using this set up: UNIC-706 by James Tillson, on Flickr I'm not sure I want to MOC with modified parts so V2 may not happen.
  10. Yes, no lego for 6 months then 5 MOCs in 3 weeks. Played for! there is a rubber band that pulls the rodent clockwise. I hope so, I will change it to "gerbil wheel" if I'm stepping on any toes. The "trick" with this one (if anybody is wondering) is that the wheel makes the rodents head and legs move while gravity and a rubber band hold the hamster in place.
  11. I started having a look at TC11 today but my spinning disc turned into a ferris wheel and then a hamster wheel...
  12. You mean undead! I was thinking of Frank from the movie Hellraiser and I wanted it to be as gory as possible without making people sick. A grey version with red LED eyes could make a good T-800. The arm doesn't pull, there is a ratchet hidden inside that only engages drive while the arm is moving backwards (like most of my builds, its a trick).
  13. I had a day at home last week and before I knew what was happening I had built a rowing boat and a skull... Lego Technic Skull by James Tillson, on Flickr I put the skull in the rowing boat and it reminded me of a crawling zombie. Version 1 was too "meaty" (its amazing how much new red technic looks like wet blood). Lego Technic Zombie 04 by James Tillson, on Flickr I put a T-shirt on the final version. He reaches out, pulls himself forward, bites and looks way creepier in the "flesh" than I can show in a youtube clip.

  15. Its OK to defend yourself but you're not going to win any support by attaking another builder.
