  4. The Mantis would be a fun challenge. :) In the meantime while waiting on the instructions for the G-Wagen, I took the KITT and tried to implement a bonnet even though it meant changing the engine from a V8 to flat 8. Do you think it is worth spending even more time with this model to update the instructions?
  5. There are still 5 of them not being shown on Youtube. I personally have no interest in building a phone stand but you never know.
  6. I am planning on completing the alphabet and going beyond. I would love to beat my personal record for a Technic set which was 31 for the 8271 set.
  7. Scorpio is my 17th alternate build of the LEGO Technic 42117 Race Plane. The Scorpio moves the pincers together with the stinger by means of a gear train and a hidden linkage. You can pose the the legs and the main sections of the pincers as well.
  8. Dog Giving Paw is my 16th alternate build of the LEGO Technic 42117 Race Plane. The Dog rotates the head and gives paw while you move the tail. The ears and his front left leg can be angled, the head can be tilted from side to side.
  9. Walrus with pup is my 15th alternate model of the LEGO Technic 42117 Race Plane. The adult Walrus has synchronized movement of the head and the tail and the fins can be individually articulated. The pup can move the head and they both get a fish to feed on.

  12. Thank you for all the praise, guys. In the meantime, brace yourselves. More 42117 alternates are coming. 19 are already finished.
  13. K.I.T.T. - Lego Technic 42111 C Model Knight Industries Two Thousand is a car based on Pontiac Firebird Trans Am 1982 from Knight Rider TV Series. This model tries to get as close to the reference but using only pieces from a single LEGO Technic set. Therefore some corners had to be cut.

  16. Hooray, a positive review :) Your front bumper sits 1M further to the front, that might be partially the issue.
  17. 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. https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-48800/grohl/snow-groomer-42100-b-model/#details
  18. Thank you. No problem to get it in Europe though. I would try Bricklink.
  19. 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.
  20. HELICOPTER My 10th alternate model of the 42117 Race Plane features both rotors connected via drivetrain and moving front landing gear to make taxiing easier. The finished Helicopter measures 23.5cm in length and the rotor diameter is 18.5 cm.
  21. Just change the position of the small gearwheels rotating the 0+ beams attached to the wings.
  22. 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 And thanks for the praise guys.

  24. Chameleon My 8th unofficial alternate of 42117 Race Plane is a Chameleon with pose-able legs and tail, the head can move from side to side and when you move the tail up and down the head follows thanks to a simple gear train.
  25. @I_Igor I do like the design of the movie car and to me it is one of the coolest ones. @Pattspatt I used mainly for the photo a second one but cutting it in half would work too since the range of the plow is not so big. The harpoon shoots even with the string attached but flies much better without it. The rear suspension uses similar principle to the Stadium truck one but has only 3 links due to the space needed for other things inside the model. It responds still really well but needed to be made harder. The plow is far behind it and weighs quite a lot. Luckily the suspension stiffness is really easy to adjust on this model. @Shiva Thank you. V8!
