    71044 Disney Train and Station

    I love the looks of the set, both the train (let them do even more 8-wides, let's drop 6-wide altogether :P ) and especially the station. Don't care about the Disney figs, but don't mind them too. The real pain with this set are the new plastic wheels for me. "Only the profit is good enough" - this quote from a friend of mine sums it up good. A real shame.

    [MOC] Tatra T813 8x8 PROFA

    This is just great! I love to see you back online, I was getting worried you took longer break from LEGO ;) Your Tatra looks serious, like it means business ;)

    42099 - 4x4 X-treme Off-Roader

    Sorry for the late reply. Yes, no B model is a gripe I have with this and few other newer big technic models from recent past. Licenced sets in particular are affected, but when the same can be seen in regular sets, this starts to worry. Looks like the new norm now is that it is equally probable to have and not have a B model in a big set. If it has one, frequently it is just a modification of an A model. Feels bad...

    Technic 2019 Set Discussion

    Can you elaborate on that? Why would 4kg model have 1 stud suspension travel and 1kg would have more?
  6. For manual only set 42069 is anexcellent example of a great set. It was a real pleasure to build and kept me interested throughout the build. It also stayed quite long in a built state, which is rare. I usually dismantle sets very quickly after building them. This one was exception. It has great position of levers compared to the function they drive, have more functions than typically too and I think it would be not too easy to fit it all in a much smaller set. So I feel here the part count wasn't just for show. I do like RC sets, but as allanp mentioned those are usually not as interesting to build as manual ones. MOCs , especially those from Madoca are exceptions to that rule. But have more motors than sets... What I would REALLY like is a theme where we have model team married to technic full time :) Edit : I love pneumatics :D

    Fantastic! I wonder how you put it on shelf. Does it need to be supported somehow?

    I really like the build of the cottage and tree bit that blue ground just doesn't do it for me.

    Something different!

    Shouldn't you at least post one picture here?

    REVIEW: 75212 Kessel Run Millennium Falcon

    I will add on the photography: one of the things to consider is not to overexpose. I have seen the photos first , then thought "it's Whitefang". You have the tendency to loose details in highlights. Simply stopping the overexposure should help, maybe also tuning down the contrast. BTW, I like to read reviews of not so new sets and this was enjoyable for me (I have not read any other of that set) although I have to admit I stopped when I reached the first photo which didn't allow me to see what the model really looks like. I just scrolled down more and saw even more overexposed pictures and called it a day. I was only curious if anyone found it distracting and saw Kristof's response. And I really hope you will keep on reviewing :) jusjust with better pictures :P

    42065 was also a hit with my children. I'm sure that's why we're having similar set so soon. I still haven't bought the Mack and a new year has come. Time flies way too fast...
  14. That is just faaaar too expensive. It's better to have a bunch of smaller EV3 motors instead...
  15. Thank you. Though sometimes size is the limiting factor, so if those are still available, it would be great to have a couple.
