  1. Thank you all for your comments.
  2. I haven't built anything from Technic for couple of months so I wanted to create something cool and cute. I took all azure parts from rally car (set 42077) and started building. After few hours I've got this blue shark. It is the third piece in my collection of Technic sharks. I built it just for looks so it features only opening maw and moving fins and tail. All is operated manually. I also built simple stand for it so it don't have to lie on its maw. If you want to build it you can download free building instructions from my website buildinst. I just recommend you to use panels without stickers otherwise it would look awful. Any comments or criticism are welcomed.

    I like them all. You got great accuracy and level of details even in such a small scale. I especially like buggy with its ludicrously big rocket lunchers.
  4. Thanky you. You welcome. Thank you for your comment. I was thinking about this wheel setup too but no wheel in back would cause too much friction when plane is running so I use this uglier setup. I didn't and I don't plan to make video for it - it is pretty simple model and making video takes too much effort and time... Thanks.
  5. I haven't been building any plane from LEGO Technic for a long time so I decided to build new one. I built it from set 42106 and it became my first twin propeller plane and also the first plane with pullback motor. Pullback motor is connected to both landing gear and propellers so after pulling it back you can let it run forward or lift it and let propellers spin during flight. Building instructions are available at buildinst.cz Any comments are welcomed.
  6. Thank you guys for your comments and for appreciating my acting skills.
  7. Some of you were curious why I mentioned compactibility with Mindstorms EV3 medium motor in video - you can check this topic to see the reason.
  8. Few years ago I built Jason Allemann's LuuMa EV3 (LEGO Ultimate Useless Machine) and started taking it with me to local LEGO exhibitions. I found out that it has one structural problem causing frequent failures and in general it does nothing (since it is called "useless" it is not very surprising). So I got idea to modify it into switch that could control external motor. And I also wanted to fix that structural problem mentioned above. Now, let me introduce you LuuMa 2.0 - "LEGO Ultimate UseFULL Machine". It is improved version of original LuuMa EV3 built and programmed by Jason Allemann. His LuuMa didn't have any real use but my version 2.0 works as switch that can control large or medium motor connected to free cable in port D. You can see it in action in video bellow. Building instructions are available at buildinst.cz
  9. My wife asked me to take apart set 40171 I gave her few years ago. When I did it I got idea to build something from it. And what is the best alternative model from any set? Helicopter! This one is even little bit special. It features opening windscreen, both rotors can freely spin and it still keeps appearence of original hedgehog - snout, thorns and four legs. So this is what you get when you crossbreed hedgehog and helicopter - Hedgecopter Building instructions are available at buildinst.cz And this is original model: Any comments are welcomed.

    I like it especially head and body with their "stud-texture". I also have to say that hands and legs looks odd with their flat texture and sharp edges.

    Review - LEGO Technic 42101 - Buggy

    I own this set and I bought it because it reminds me buggies 8829 and 8048 (8829 was my very first LEGO set and 8048 brought me back to LEGO from dark age). It is good set if you don't expect much from it. Since it has limited number of parts it is really difficult to build good alternative model out of its parts. And about your review - I wouldn't call it review. You just copy-pasted official description of set from lego.com and added few more lines with almost no additional information about model. It would be better to add some information about toughness of suspension, steering radius, solidity of model, some interesting building techniques and parts (for example this set contains just one gear), pictures of model without stickers and pictures of B-model...
  12. Thank you for your comment. Yep, this was more about original usage of shock absorber. Thanks. I also like this model much although I didn't have big expectations at the beginning.
  13. Thank you for your comment. I hope you will like it in reality too.
  14. This deer is my second alternative model built out of set 70827 (Ultrakatty & Warrior Lucy!). It features big antlers and moving legs, neck and head. My goal with this model was to find some purpose for different thorns included in big amounts in set 70827. This model is my fourth entry to TLCB Lock-Down Competition. When I was done with deer I built simple turtle from leftover parts to give Emmet something for riding too. You also might remember my first alternative model from this set - Alien queen. Building instructions for both models are available at buildinst.cz Any comments are welcomed.
