BLUE DRAGON
is my second unofficial alternate model of the 42123 McLaren Senna GTR.
The Dragon reaches 55cm wingspan and measures 55cm in length.
The features include:

  • Flapping wings by rotating the hidden wheel
  • Poseable neck and head
  • Opening mouth
  • Poseable legs
  • Poseable feet
  • Moving 3-section tail
  • Comes with a display stand but can stand as well perfectly on its own
  • 800x533.JPG800x533.jpg800x533.JPG

And thanks for the praise guys. I usually need a bit more than 2 piece even though a duck can be done using only 2 parts https://www.instagram.com/p/B_HsLthJmwD/

Whoooa! You keep raising the bar higher and higher! *oh2*

Is there a possibility to reverse the wheel rotation? I guess that the wings moves more accurate when reversed....

Just change the position of the small gearwheels rotating the 0+ beams attached to the wings.

But in his case it will have at least 3 thechnic functions, ever being a single brick. I don't know how, but "imposiible" is just not about him. Last Dragon was a total overkill for me!

BIRD

My second alternate of the Helicopter Polybag 30465 is a cute little bird with synchronized flapping wings that can be angled on their shoulder joints.

Very creative alternate model! By the way, how did you find the helicopter polybag? It seems impossible to find in the USA.

Thank you. No problem to get it in Europe though. I would try Bricklink.

IMPORTANT APP UPDATE FOR 42100 SNOW GROOMER

In case you built my alternate model of 42100 and it stopped working recently, here is a video that can help with that.

BuWizz App is not supporting LEGO PU Hubs any longer so I switched to the LEGO Powered Up App and wrote a new code.

Think this is the best 42117 alternate yet! Reminds me of the Fusa from the Bionicle Master Builder set.

Nice! Very inspiring that one can also have a lot of fun with just a small set! 

I took 42101-1 - Buggy with me on holidays and created three construction vehicles, very satisfying. Will publish them in the next couple of weeks,.
