  1. Yeah. That was my thinking. It's mainly the new tires I wanted anyway .
  2. If anyone is in the UK, Argos are selling the e-tron 42160 for £82. It's a 'black friday' thing so probably won't last long. I am tempted as it looks like a good parts donor. But I'm not sold on the control app stuff.
  3. Amazing. No inconvenience caused. Thanks for the awesome work!
  4. Hi. Thanks for the amazing work on the LDD parts update. With the latest update (version 20231023) I have a few bricks showing error. It just shows a generic 2x2 brick with an exclamation mark. I can't list them as LDD also unexpectedly just closes on me now. Any idea how to fix this? Many thanks in advance.
  5. This is rather nice. I like the shaping you managed to create on the rear end. And the use of the mudguard piece over the headlights is very clever. I think the front wheel arch could do with a bit of tweaking. It feels a bit blocky compared with the rest of the build. All in all its a thumbs up from me!
  6. It might be a bit difficult to implement. But could you use some struts like this?
  7. This is true. I didn't take that into consideration. However, the frame could be modified to fit.
  8. This is coming along nicely . I have a suggestion regarding all those bevel gears in the lift mechanism. You can get rid of a few of them with this setup: With this all the mini LA's will be rotating in the same direction and will have less friction due to less gears.
  9. I like the way this is going. I think it belongs in this forum, but I'd imagine it would fit the creator forum too. I'd say PF over PU but only because I think it integrates with Technic better. And I don't like all this smart phone enabled stuff. Looking forward to seeing more progress for sure.
  10. This is really intriguing and with such lovely movement. I might have to have a go at reverse engineering it! Thanks for sharing it.
  11. Ha ha . thanks for the explanation. Shapeways here I come!
  12. Thanks @Jundis . I did try those panels. In fact I ordered some especially for it, but somehow I didn't like them. I might post a picture with them on for comparison. This part would indeed work and would be very useful. But I just can't go over to the dark side! (if only Lego would take note!) Thanks for all the comments guys.
  13. Thank you. I'd be delighted if Sennebogen wanted to buy it. I once made a Huddig backhoe and they contacted me asking to buy it. They didn't in the end as my asking price was too high!
  14. Thanks for your comments. I don't have any lime so I had to go with yellow. I also tried adding more panels to the arm but the extra weight ment it was too heavy for the actuator to lift. If I changed the gearing ratio it might work but I couldn't find any space inside to do that. The outriggers are geared through a worm gear hence the slow speed. I'd still say they're faster than the 42009 though
  15. Thanks. I suppose if you put a couple of motors in the under carriage they might fit. But then where to put the battery box? Personally I prefer the challenge of only using one motor and figuring out the gearbox.
