    time max....there is never enough time! Unfortunately we are not kids anymore and it's hard to find time to dedicate to Lego...but promise you this time I'll complete the MOC!

    [CONCEPT] Pneumatic Telescopic Boom

    Max I've stopped for a while working on the Fassi (some pics are on my bricksafe folders) I hope in the following weeks I'll start again working on it....I'll send you pics in private. Andrea P.S. we both love these sort of cranes....we could work together on something amazing!!!

    [CONCEPT] Pneumatic Telescopic Boom

    ok, the idea is nice but I think having that "wide" boom on a side simply bends/leans the all crane. Also, if we talk about the lenght extension it doesn't seem there is a huge gain compared to other solutions. I made a 4 section boom within 5X5 studs for istance......each of your red bracket it's already a 3X2....so think about it! But i like the fact people like you come up with interesting ideas anyway! Stimulates other people as well to be curious about it!

    [HELP] Newbie Getting Started

    Brickowl and bricklink are great market places! Also never happened to me to receive an opened parcel...so guess it has something to do with a nosey courier maybe? I live in UK, best shops for sets are: Smythstoys when the sales are on, Argos on the 3X2 and Tesco Direct sometimes! Also on Brickowl I recently sold my sealed 42009 for less than retail price....still made money out of it...so watch out for it!
  9. Thanks for the answer Sariel! Is it possible to put yellow, black and grey rims on these new tyres? Just to see how they look like! Thanks again!
  10. First time I feel Sariel is very happy about a set! It's a shame the hood and cabin are flimsy but we will forgive TLG for this, simply a wonderful set! Question: using the HOG is it heavier than the Unimog or not?
  11. Accurate and great review as usual Sariel, enjoyed it and thanks for bringing it to us! My opinion now: bad proportions, ugly look, almost zero playability given the speed and complexity of gearbox (also who is going to actually play/dig stuff with it??) , ok on the +3900 parts...but one can still buy only the ones needed on Bricklink/BrickOwl.....so for me is a massive no! I don't see why TLG needed to make this set....

    42053 - Volvo EW160E

    well don't forget that every year sets grow up in size and parts count!

    42053 - Volvo EW160E

    New hand pump looks absolutely interesting!! Again this medium size set seems to be amazing! What I like about it is that reminds me on proper old technic sets! Compact with lots of functions and features!

    42054 - Claas Xerion 5000 Trac VC

    HOLY MOLY!!! Once again this set will be epic and will be "desired" for the next 20 years at least! So much potential thinking at the attachments plus those tyres can be used in many amazing mocs!!!

    42056 - Porsche 911 GT3 RS - MODs and Improvements

    stretched tyres, anyone? :tongue: I did put the 42000 tyres on the Porsche rim.....amazing result!!
  17. I like all these improvements. And will definitely apply them all. I also think there should be mods like "adjustable camber" or "coilovers" version, all mods like the tuners do on cars Maybe sway bars, "lower" springs, wider body kits, lower bumpers......

    Porsche Pricing & Availability

    Hello guys, after reading the latest posts here I had a look at my Lego account and now my order says "Contact Customer Service".....where other people here states it went from backordered to in warehouse..... :cry_sad: Why would they not say something similar? Why would they leave a customer confused like this? What if I hadn't checked my Lego account?? This sounds like a joke to me...

  22. Wowwwwww! That's insane! I really like it, specially for it's size and the power it seems to deliver! on the "fast mode" how also faster it drains the battery?
