  1. LEGO Technic buggies have special place in my life - my very first LEGO set was Technic buggy 8829 and buggy 8048 took me definitely back from "dark age" so buying new buggy 42101 was sure thing for me. I also knew what I wanna build out of it - motorbike because it was official alternative model of set 8829. It took me a lot of effort to build it. I spent more than 12 hours by trial and error before I found the way how to build it. Final model features same functions as main model - steering and rear axle suspension. Building instructions are available at buildinst.cz

    [REVIEW] 42101 - Buggy

    Thank you for reviewing such a small set. I'm gonna buy it because it reminds me two buggies from past - 8829 (my very first LEGO set) and 8048 (the set that ended my dark age). I also plan to try to build motorbike out of this set.
  3. It looks much better to me.
  4. What a cool alternative model! I like how you made mechanism for operating bucket. The only thing that could be make better is bucket. Do you have picture of left over pieces? Maybe there are parts between them that can make it more enclosed...

    Is 42081 worth building?

    I've built only A-model and I was not impressed by it - it is pretty ugly and functions are very simple. Personally I prefer this wheel skidder built out of set 42081:
  6. Thank you. I wish you good luck too. By the way I've already chosen what I'm gonna build and its scale - it should be similar size like Porsche form set 42056. I did it this way: when I am done with model I start taking it apart while taking pictures of this process. Then I go from last picture to the first and building model again in some software. Last time I used LDD because it is more Technic friendly than Studio. If you are too lazy to take pictures of dismantling you can try to build model directly during taking model apart. When I have model in digital form I use Studio to create steps.
  7. Thank you all for opening this topic and adding advices. I also plan to start building my first super car and this discussion looks pretty helpful.
  8. Wow, I agree with others - this Lotus looks much better than original Porsche. By the way how many parts left over? Would it be enough to build version with roof?
  9. This is really cool alternative model. Completely white version looks even better. Good job!
  10. Building instructions for skidder are available at rebrickable.com now. Enjoy building!
  11. Thank you for your feedback. I checked instructions and I can't see any error there. You are adding two black 1x5 liftarms in step 5 and both are connected to 5x11 tapered panel added in previous step. The third black 1x5 liftarm was added in step 2 and I can't see any other 1x5 liftarm in assembly.
  12. I've made video of skidder in action and building instructions will be available in few day too.

    There are building instructions for my two pretty old alternative models available at buildinst.cz now. The first of them is truck with work platform built out of set 8052. It is one of my very first Technic models and I've used cab from official B-model in it. The second model is hot rod Mk II built out of set 8041. It is upgraded version of original hot rod that I've built out of this set. You can also build it out of set 42041. And the last is off-road formula built out of set 42037.
  14. Building instructions for shark are available at rebrickable.com now!
  15. I am taking it to exhibition this weekend and then I will begin with making instructions.
