Just asked effe in a chat how long it took to create this masterpiece cuz i knew he build it today... more or less five hours.

So i imagine how long a lego designer worked on that crappy 9397, maybe some weeks? Don´t get me wrong, i totally understand the difference. A lego designer has to create stuff for a worldwide market, kids and afols, design to cost issues and so on and so on...

But, it always impresses me how effe builds solid stuff in a very clever way, good looking AND good functionality. Everything he creates is a great balance of this four attributes.

There is more than just Efferman on here that can build solid good looking and functionalty into models on here and I am not taking about myself.......:wink:

Alasdair, i´m so sorry. Seems to me: whatever i write here, i´ll insult the community.

First approach was my fail not getting pics and vids of the 9398 within minutes when we got it - my decision to get data of the L-Motor first was wrong.

So i was sitting for some weeks in a dark cellar, hitting myself with wet celery for that.

Today they let me out. Man it was hard to see the daylight again.

Now i failed also at the second approach here, thougt i mention how quickly effe builds those ingenious solutions and how it impresses me - in his thread.

Will they put me in that dark cellar again? I should convert to another hobby like counting peas... dunno is there a forum for peacounters? Will you be my mate there Alasdair?

;o)

i do, seems to me you don´t like me to be here Alasdair.

Never felt so unwelcome like here.

So i´ll go...

hopefully the contest is not really a simple body shell contest, because this 1954 pickup is my idea for the contest.so be patient, more pics from the full moc will not come till the contest begins.

maybe you can see that it looks around the windshield a little bit strange. there is currently a need for tweaking. and no the colour sheme is not final, first i will find the best shape before i will order more white parts

it would be sure a challenge to get enough and the right rust brown parts to build this.

as i have said before the colour sheme is not final. maybe it becomes a skunk :devil:  :laugh:
