  1. Past hour
  2. [MOC] Playstation CMF Series

    I really wish those Uncharted minifigures were real!
  3. Dodge Viper ACR

    Wait you made a car what a week ago. Dang, prolific to say the least great work.
  4. Agree with @Littleworlds; I am really over-organized, but if you've got a small number of hinge plates, clips, etc., then they could all just go into their one bin. You still need to search, but through a whole lot less. You can narrow down without getting obsessive about it.
  5. Purist Superhero Figures

    I love marvel’s contest of the champions. Those characters are spot on. Is it purist if I use a cotton ball?
  6. Dodge Viper ACR

    Beautiful model! And in my favorite color! Terrific job on all the details and styling. Keep up the great work!
  7. [MOC] Playstation CMF Series

    I think their is a problem, I don't know a third of the characters. (Basically the second row or 7-12.) For the more casual "player" that could be a issue. But at the same time I wonder if it says more about me. Or if Sony/PlayStation doesn't have that many unique characters.
  8. The halo is little more than a band-aid solution. They'll be looking into Indycar's windscreen solution as the season goes on.
  9. Dodge Viper ACR

    Terrific job, as always. Couple of things I like: 1- 2 BuWizz in Ludicrous mode? 2 RC motors? Sign me up. Way to keep speed in such an iconic car (at the time) which (again, at the time) was really known for nothing more than having a huge engine. 2 - Optional variants in gear box, motors, batteries? Great Job! Should make the building experience for others even more pleasurable. 3 - Other than what I am about to share below, looks appear spot on. Only thing I don't like: 1 - Your overlay picture tells the whole story. The only area the proportions are off is where the windshield and bonnet (or snout of car) meet. This, in my opinion, leads to too sharp an ascent for the windshield and too long an appearance for the snout of the vehicle. Even before I saw the overlay pics I felt something was off, and that pic solidified it. Understandably, moving this connection up would perhaps interfere with where the engine is, and may have either precluding adding it or pushed it into the mechanics at the very front of the vehicle, but either way, I do think it interferes with the overall great look of this car. Other than that this is a great build!
  10. Today
  11. Dodge Viper ACR

    Absolutely mesmerizing!
  12. Dodge Viper ACR

    I've been waiting for this topic! It's an interesting take on the supercar, focusing on speed and performance over functionality but keeping a detailed exterior. Great job on the shaping. When I saw it on the ice I thought it was a bit slow, but once it got on the "track" I was blown away.
  13. Dodge Viper ACR

    Beautiful!
  14. Episode 80 is up! Some really fun character moments, fight choreography, and man, that twist was quite well done!
  15. First thoughts on Episode 80. Whoever is doing the fight choreography this season deserves a raise.
  16. The American Club Racing (ACR) model was introduced in 1999, starting with the Viper GTS (Phase SR II). Exclusive 1 by lachlan cameron, on Flickr This model had suspension and engine enhancements focused on maximizing performance in road racing and autocross environments. Horsepower was bumped to 460 hp (370 kW) in these models, while torque increased to 500 lb·ft (678 N·m). Weight was reduced by over 50 pounds (23 kg) by stripping the interior and removing other non-essential items such as the fog lamps (replacing them with brake ducts). Dodge Viper ACR by lachlan cameron, on Flickr In an attempt to stay true to its heritage, I've left this beast without bells and whistles in the name of speed.It sport a front clam shell hood, opening rear trunk, and spring back doors. The real catch here is in the speed and options. Dodge Viper ACR by lachlan cameron, on Flickr This Viper packs 2x Buwizz 2.0 (with Ludicrous mode) that power this monster directly to 2x Buggy motors. The gearing is accessible and can be swapped for a higher or lower gear in minutes. Ratios avail: 1:1 and 1:1.7. This model also has many build options: 1. 1 or 2 buwizz / 1 or 2 Lipo / 1 or 2 Sbrick 2. 2 Buggy motor or 2 XL motor 3. Fully manual car (just remove the electronics 4. Swap out the engine on the fly for a new one!

  17. I agree. I understand "oooooh shiny", but Mr. Gold lacks significance to be sold at the prices it got to. I think it was just a bubble and now that they are scarce they will never be going down. Anyways, I agree that it's better to get at least one per box. I think that's what they should do with any chase figures going forward.
  18. To 1: I think having more "exotic" pieces together can help a lot, without making things overorganized. Searching can also be a quite calming experience and can be a good exercise in patience and focusing, within reason. 2: It really depends. Some sets are quite in demand, while others get generously discounted even while still on the (virtual or physical) shelves. Generally the ones with popular minifigures stay quite stable in price and often get up on the second market. When buying new it helps to keep an eye on sites like Amazon for special offers. Especially towards the end of the products shelf-life prices come often down significantly.
  19. That was a great help; a very good and useful one. Merci beaucoup :-) Now you opened my eyes to a mysterious inconsistency in 1988. There are black motors of type 3 and 4 both made in 1988!
  20. There are dark green (possibly standard green like 42008?) beams on the base as well. eg 9L for the steering arms, 15L along the top of base where the turntable is plus 5x3 L shaped beams.
  21. Marvel Superheroes 2018 - Set Discussion

    Managed to score 3 of the Sets in John Lewis in the UK today (even more Awesome is that it’s my birthday too) the Cap and Widow Set was £11.99 the Hulkbuster was £29.99 and the Thor Set was £19.99. gonna keep checking incase they put anymore out, finding Sets this early in the UK is a huge rarity so was an awesome birthday present to find! Also got both Black Panther Sets; the builds are fantastic but the figures are awful.
  22. Swordsmanship Practice

    This warehouse is huge, and it's decorated nicely. Nice photos and excellent writing too.
