Being a teenager in the early to mid eighties, then becomming a hi-fi tech I remember cassette tapes well - I some times prefer them to CD - anyway your design is simply AWESOME !
You have caught every bit of detail including the spindle holes, tape guide holes and the overall shape !
Great work 'lego-maniac' and keep on bricking ! :classic:

Oh what a surprise !
I was looking for inspiration on EB, and I found the perfect idea for the L13 contest !!  
But, oh wait, the Moc is from lego-maniac !! :wink:  :grin:

Superbe Moc soit dit en passant, j'ai hâte de voir la version finalisée !

Awesome MOC lego-maniac!  Seriously, at first glance I thought it was a picture of two cassette tapes (ignoring the size difference).  Ah, it gives me flash backs, playing the same tape over and over until the tape starts to get chewed up in the cassette player, slowly driving everyone around me crazy.  Ah,  good times...  By the way, how did you do the reels?  Good luck with the contest.  :thumbup:

That is incredibly accurate!!! Well done and good luck for the comp.

Thanks a lot for your comments.

to Louloute & Ar Sparfel  : oh my god, I am unmasked!

For the bands, I'll show all details as soon as I finished the tape.


I still wondering if the whole tape in black is a goud idea.

Maybe the lower part should be dark gray to better see the difference in level.
What do you think about it ?

Very fashionable!  I like it.

Did I review your Academy review and you've waited more than three days for a follow up after you fixed it?  PM me.  I'll get it done.

Very well done, legomaniac!

If you had shown a photo of your MOC only, I would not have realized it was made of Lego. Amazing!
Good luck with the contest.

Really great job here, lego-maniac :thumbup:

This kind of things are always interesting to see in LEGO form, and for some reason we are always surprised to see them, because they are the things we expect the least!

Good luck for the contest!

Wow!

I saw the first photo and thought it was a real tape to show what you wanted to build. :oh:

Upon closer inspection I realized it was a tad too thin.

Very well done!

But 100 bricks is not under 100 bricks, now is it? ;) Did you write "Made in BELG UM" with no 'I' on purpose?

I love lego - Glad I found this epic forum!!! - it all started for me when I inadvertantly inherited loads - since then sites like toyBrickShop have had me hooked - till I found this awesome place, now I just spend hours looking at lego MOC's in absolute wonder!

That's just amazing!

As others have already said, you can't really tell if it's LEGO or a real cassette.
Excellent work!

You brought some great sweet memories from the '80s to me... :cry_happy:

Hi Thanks all !

For The Made In BELG UM the "I" didn't work during the transfert and it was my only i !
The MOC is in my son bedroom and I think it last 2 or 3 days with 100 parts maximum !
He'll catch some parts for his own MOC soon.

100 parts is the maximum parts allowed without minifig.

@Zorba : "mixtapes on"  :tongue:
