  1. 42083 - Bugatti Chiron

    Like 8070?
  2. 42083 - Bugatti Chiron

    Perspective still has to be off quite a bit right? I mean, even on the corrected images, look at the bionicle tooth just opposite to the #5 panels above the headlights. It certainly looks curved, and we all know this piece is not curved......
  3. Home-made Lego Air Tank

    Probably would have been a good idea. Though the plastic mostly curled around the drill bit as I drilled so really I don't think any got into the tank. Plastic was much more pliable than brittle.
  4. With Lego air tanks going on average, 34 dollars USD, here is a three-minute tutorial how to create your own. With virtually no end to the different shapes and sizes of medicine bottles, you can make an air tank fitting more.... or less (bigger or smaller) than the official Lego versions.
  5. 42083 - Bugatti Chiron

    Lol.....if paul is saying "very special things" i think we are going to be hearing the sounds of people changing their opinions of this set........
  6. 42083 - Bugatti Chiron

    Or recognize that this is still considered a toy that will not meet everyone's needs and there are so many more ways to judge it. Personally, I could not care less about how it looks because I will be buying it just for the parts. Expensive parts pack? Yup! But likely it will have some parts that one cannot get anywhere else.
  7. 42083 - Bugatti Chiron

    +1 here. For a bunch of educated folks we all seem to not have much objectivity to how our minds work Everyone berated the Porsche for being all form and no function. Without even knowing anything about function we have everyone complaining about the form. Just gonna sit back and see the opinions run by like a train. One trailer, two trailer, three.........
  8. 42083 - Bugatti Chiron

    Fun to see someone replicate both in Technic. Likely possible with the piece selection and count that is likely to result from this set.....
  9. 42083 - Bugatti Chiron

    Yes, that is what I see as well. If we are literal in this picture interpretation (it is really 42083) then I think this is something no one has anticipated thus far.
  10. [WIP] Liebherr LTM11200 crane

    I would not worry about it much. First, I personally would prefer slow to any jerking... and going slow will decrease any. We are working with ABS after-all, some concessions have to be made.
  11. [WIP] V12 LPE

    As a fan favorite of LPEs, I will follow closely. Once all the rage, LPEs are not as common as they once were. You may want to contact Alex Zorko at lpepower.com he has produced some fantastic LPEs over the years. Not many have produced LPEs with the small cylinders. Many believe they are too weak though there have been some that look fairly powerful: Though I don't know. The plastic rod-part seem too weak to me. Large cylinders, aside from being larger and more powerful, are so much more powerfully built.
  12. [WIP] Liebherr LTM11200 crane

    I have voiced my fascination before here with cranes. There are some doozies out there.... but this may just take the cake. I will be a follower of this tread....
  13. Wow.... brilliant job everyone.
  14. 42082 - Rough Terrain Crane

    Which was about half the piece count of this set.......
  15. 42082 - Rough Terrain Crane

    Looking closer I am sure there was some part inflation going on to make the 4,000 pieces. Not that I am complaining.... But take a look at the hubs. Aren't those 1x1 round tiles... in black? 8 per wheel? And I don't really think it looks that good. But... 8 x 4 = 32 pieces right there. Why the 3l black bars linking the chain hoisting the wall when the studded parts of the chain can both easily be connected into the connector that is in the wall? Historically, cranes have had a billion pins in their overall part count (42009 anyone? ). The switch on the BB, though I don't mind that it is covered from its ugly orange, has a switch built out of at least six pieces though the real switch is easily accessible. And that is right off the top of my head. I am sure there are many other examples. Couple other observations: - Is this the longest mobile crane boom we have seen in a Lego model (first stage)? 42009 was 3 11L (curved) panels long, this one is four. - Really like the use of the silver string as also used in 42070 and 42069. I really hope this is an ongoing tread. Really like this string. - Looks like there is a clutch gear near the main winch. Probably used in the system for lifting. So, like pretty much all cranes before it (42042, etc.) before anyone begins complaining of lifting capability this will need to be changed out for normal 24t gear. - Tool compartment? will it actually have tools in it? Kinda like 42069? Hope so, another trend I like.
