sometimes i wish the IR sensors would be, like the LED lights, at the end of a Cable. in my opinion this would make the IR system much more flexible and would not need so ugly solutions.
Oh Well, nothing is perfect. Although you bring "flawed" sets to perfection, this one seems limited since 9395 is sooo packed. I would like to see the insides of this beast to understand what you did.

The big 8109 would be in 1:10 also in a bigger scale than 8110. please nail me not at the wall with the big 8109. alone the flatbed would need ca. 40 5x11 rectangular panels.
in the same scale like 9395? let me calculate, 1:15 21 studs wide, this should be possible.
hm nice idea, a fleet of tow trucks.
I'm sorry, but I don't understand what you mean by "please nail me not at the wall with the big 8109". Are you saying that you dread making the big 8109? It was your idea! :tongue:

Efferman sadly left the 'do not' out of his reply.:blush:

This bigger 8109 would be interesting as you could also make a small crane for it.:classic:

its hard to translate a german saying/adage/byword to english. i hope it means: dont to be insistent that i make the big 8109 real.
i want build the big 8109, but i can not guarantee that i am realize it.

Alright, I won't bother you about the Flatbed Truck...
Although I was thinking of bothering you about your wonderful 8110 mod :devil: . Will you also make instructions for it? I am really curious about what you did in there.
Also, your idea for a big scale 8109 got me wondering about a 8285, 8258, 8052, and 8071 on Unimog scale. I would go for it, but my collection is tiny. LDD, anyone?

Back on topic, I eagerly await your instructions, Effe.

the instruction for my 9395 will come, but let me a few days before i dismantle it to make the instruction. LDD is a fight for me, so this is not an option.
and then want some people for my 8109 RC mod a pictured partslist in german with the parts which not contained in 8109.

Quote

8285, 8258, 8052 on Unimog scale.
this would be nearly impossible, because there are not the correct tire sizes available. Big Scale absolutely yes, but not in 8110 Scale

by the way, is in the web a partlist available with all Lego Parts? including Bricklink and TLG part number?

I think it's brilliant! It's simple and to the point, but a graphic somewhere would liven it up better. (i.e. a hook or something)

Keep on being awesome, Effeh!

Nice.

One thought is that "nothing is too small to tow" while being perfectly good english, isn't how a slogan usually appears on trucks. It's usually shortened to "No job too small" to be "catchy". I'm not sure if "No Tow Too Small" works though?

Thanks for your thoughts. I was not sure if my english was correct.
The thought behind my slogan is "No Vehicle is too small to tow an other vehicle" and not " No Vehicle is too small to be towed"
"nothing is too small to tow" was thought as a joke.

edit:
hm so side by side with 9395 looks the 8109 really small. i think it is really time for a bigger flatbed truck.

Your modified tow truck is just beautiful. You see that Lego, that's how you should make a tow truck!

okay, this sounds like a silly question, but are you ever going to update your brickshelf account? also, i'd like instructions for the modified 9395, and the unimog g, when you finish. that would be very helpful, as i need all the inspiration i can get. thanks.

i hope it will be not to big. The scale is 1/10 so it should fit to some of the supercars. The width is 255mm (32 studs), regulated by the cab which i choose, it will be 320-380mm high. The length will be between 800 and 1200mm if i make a big 8109. iam be exitedly if it is possible to make it full rc with all the things which i want do.
