    2018 Lego Trains

    That is a great job! Thanks:) But there is one thing that makes me curious- if this is a passenger train why here is no place for passengers (no windows, no seats- does it make sense)? Or maybe if price goes higher for this set we can expect to see a longer trains than just 3 cars?

    Technic 2018 Set Discussion

    I haven't seen photos yet (so now I know that I should visit Eurobricks forum more often ) but I hope that new flagship will not be any supercar because in this kind of vehicles functions are always very simple.

    [MOC] Monster Truck Transporter

    I decided to use 2 servo motors because it was easier to make it both axle steering. For example 9398 has just 1 SERVO but there are 2 L motors for each axle. I wanted to make driving system stable and I think it is better with one motor for driving and 2 for steering. Also If You have two IR receivers and two remotes You can control each axle separately. About the monster truck cab- I like that "long tail" style and I wouldn't change it:)

    Best way to make a fifth wheel

    HELLO:) I have idea for fifth wheel but it is more Model Team than Technic. I also use it with my gooseneck trailer. That fifth wheel is based on simple idea: DROP THE AXLE IN THE HOLE. So if You want to disconnect You must lift Your gooseneck up. Here is the link for LDD file: https://drive.google...iew?usp=sharing
  9. Great toy to play with:) I would like to have something like this. This car is a great drifting vehicle. You packed it very well:)

    42056 - Porsche Speculation

    In the back of the car there is something large and light bluish gray- maybe battery box. Where is receiver? There is something under front windscreen- maybe IR receiver? So Jim dont complain about no HoG:) So now You know why it may be expensive. Color- well maybe multi color with many stickers and logos like race cars.

    Review: 6232 Skeleton Crew

    I wrote this review because on this forum it hasn't been reviewed yet. So I thought if I have it somewhere on shelf then I should show it. Thank You

    Possible battery issues and PF query

    From my experience I would say the best idea is to use regular LEGO battery box with good quality reachargable batteries like sanyo eneloop. Ofcourse then You will need good intelligent charger.

    Review: 6232 Skeleton Crew

    When I was a child i used to build vehicles (especially trucks) but one day visiting my local toy shop I was impressed with small pirate set. What really made me fascinated about it was the skeleton minifigure... 6232 Skeleton Crew Release year: 1996 Parts number: 17 Minifigures: 2 Bricklink: http://www.bricklink...em.asp?S=6232-1 Brickset: http://brickset.com/...1/Skeleton-Crew Box The box is very small and I dont have any modern set with similar box size. But I must say that I dont like that color scheme. It seems to be too sad and I would prefer to see box style which appeared with earlier pirates sets (that yellow lines around main pictures). Back and side of the box show us more models we can build with this set- this may be surprising that so small set includes enough pieces to make alternate builds. Building instruction Some experienced builders may say that when set is small building instruction isn't needed. Well I must say that building alternate models I couldn't see every part of the model because for example they were covered with skeleton. So small pictures on the second page may be difficult to use... Parts To be honest there isn't any rare piece but You may like gold pieces, large green leafs, grey large panels and skeleton of course The set It's another small pirates set that You cant dislike. Even if there is a small parts number You can make a serious battle between ugly pirate and old soldier skeleton. Fight but what for??? Gold is what we all need not matter You are a soldier or a pirate. So choose and grab Your weapon!!! Minifigures So who would You choose a pirate or a soldier skeleton? It was my first skeleton minifigure but after I bought this set the pirate seemed to be very interesting because of uncommon face (I owned mostly CITY sets in my collection with smilling faces). Spare pieces Previous photos include spare parts but here You can see what left after build. That large leaf spare piece surprised me Alternate models There are 3 alternate models. One is on the side and two on the back of the box. What do You think about this set? This is my childhood set so its hard to say something bad about it. There were problems building alternate models (couldnt see what is behind the wall and skeleton). Also more weapons could be included but thats a wish. Maybe box color could be more happy but thats just my opinion. Overall the set is wonderfull with a lot of play possibilities. It looks great also for collectors although any rare piece is not included.

    What kind of budget do you set?

    My monthly budget is 40USD (35EURO). When I want to buy something expensive I have to collect money for few months.
