  1. The kids will love that at BV! Good work Rohan:)
  2. Hey everyone, As soon as I saw the defender set and heard about its ambitious gearbox I knew I was gonna get it! Loved the set but felt that it didn't show off its engineering enough so I set off on building a B model for it. It has two speed gearboxes for each arm and a four speed gearbox for the turntable. Still has a few tweaks needed but for the most part all major mechanisms are in place. It's based off the design of my V2 spirograph which makes use of the sets differentials. I was worried about the stability of it as it is hand cranked, however I was pleasantly surprised with the results. The finished prints almost hide imperfections when viewed as a whole. I love this set, looking forward to see what others come up with. Once I am happy with everything I will make some intsructions and a full video of it, just wanted to share it with you all. Peace:)
  3. Hey everyone, thought I'd share a project that I worked on. A few months I was approached by a guy who asked me to build a robot that could self replicate for his music video out of lego. Doing a lot of music stuff myself I thought it would be a cool way to meet some new poeple and have a bit of fun. I built the yellow arm specifically for the vid, and brought in some other contraptions that I have been working on to give the idea of a production line type setup. I'll be doing a video on the arm by itself and a more detailed write up of it in the next few weeks, in the meantime enjoy the video here: Cheers:)
  4. Thank you! Yeah, it definitely was a bit of fun. I'm excited to share them, haven't put out anything in well over a year now:0

    42110 - Land Rover Defender

    Set looka pretty cool but kinda wish it was an original defender in dark blue or even tan. Looking forward to the reviews of all these sets!

    [MOC] Spirograph V2

    Thank you:) Thanks for your kind comment. Starting from the top, the first two gearboxes select the primary speed of the arms. The input is from the motor and the outputis into one side of a differential. The central gearbox not only controls the speed of the turntable, but the input to the secondary gearboxes. These gearboxes feed into the other side pf the differential and add/subtract rotations in the arm based on the turntable. Hope this helps :p
  9. Hey everyone! Finally found some time to shoot a video for my second spirograph. I actually had this finished over a year ago but you know how life works sometimes:) Thanks to PG5200 for describing to me how his V5 works which largely inspired this one. To address the question I get asked all the time at exhibitions "Can you get two going at once?" I came up with this: These are drawn simultaneously, which you can see in the video here: Thanks everyone:) I'll have an LDD file on the way shortly

    [MOC] Spirograph V2

    Hey everyone, last night I finished up the ldd file for this spirograph. Just submitted it to Rebrickable but here is the link to the file: There were a few issues with alignments so I am yet to make the fixes for them obvious, until then enjoy:)

    Lykan Hypersport + Instructions

    Nice work Lachlan, the view from above looks stunning!
  12. Hey everyone, after a bit of a hiatus here is what I have got to show: I displayed this as part of this year's GBC circuit at the Brickvention here in Melbourne. I made it to answer what I guess is the one question GBCers get asked a lot. I was inspired by Nico71's brilliant sculpture and thought i would have a crack! Hope you enjoy:)

    [MOC] WHY NOT Kinetic Sculpture

    Haha it just came down to time:) Good idea!

    Lift Mechanism

    My friend Rohan B built a gbc module that has a mechanism perfect for this. It uses the small type technic chain with one tank tread that cycled a dump truck back and forth.

    Adjustable Spirograph V9 by PG52

    This is awesome, I remember him saying that there was a V9 but it was never published. So so cool!
  17. Sorry about that, I guess I haven't been paying attention
  18. If you look on the website a shortlist has been reveiled by the judges. I think 20 or so received a comment from the admins to say they had passed into the final

    [PORSCHE] Porsche 911 Panamera RSR

    I like how you have combined design aspects from different cars into one, nice job!
  20. Nice work, I love the octan colours, especially with the green from the 24 hours car.
  21. They are from the dump bed of the Arocs;)
  22. What an awesome MOC! Bunch of nifty little mechanisms in there which don't compromise the overall look one bit

    [MOC] Aston Martin DB11

    I have seen it used by thirdwigg in one of his unimogs as a portal axle before, nice and sturdy! Jeez this is looking good, lookin forward to the final product. Really motivating to get into supercars
  24. Awesome work! I'll have to watch the video a couple more times though to figure it out
