    Tips for an 8480 rebuild?

    I am currently experimenting with soaking white parts in hydrogen peroxide to de yellow them. Unfortunately it needs sunlight to work. Living in the UK sun is not around at the moment. Apparently if you soak the parts in 3% hydrogen peroxide for a few days in the sun, it brings the parts up like new.

    I did think about that. I didn't know if it would work though.

    Yeah. That's my worry. Especially this time of year!

    Good evening all. I have recently got myself the legendary 8880. I'm super excited to start building it but I'm cleaning the parts first. I have some hydrogen peroxide to soak the white bits in. I could only get 6%. Most of the tutorials I've found use 3%. Do you think 6 might be too strong? I don't want to ruin the parts. Has anyone used this method or had any experience with 6%?
  5. Maybe get rid of the black bracket and swap the tan bevel gears for the black ones. Didumos69 is right about the structure. More bracing makes a huge difference.

    This is really very, very nice. Lovely smooth movements and a refined body.....
  7. Perfect. Worked like a charm. Thanks.
  8. Hello. Are the new small wheelarch parts in studio? If not, where would I get the LDraw part and how do I get it into studio? Thanks in advance.

    Hey all. Set 42088 is being sold in Lidl this week for £6.99 (in the UK). Just picked up a couple of them. They're quite good little parts packs.

    Thanks. The red parts come from bricklink mainly. I need to start stocking up on other colours though. Red's getting a bit boring for me!

    There are similarities. Maybe subconsciously it inspired me to build this! Thanks for your comments.
  12. Good afternoon people. After several mini dark ages, I proudly present my latest creation. The Red Monster! This model came about after trying to get back into Lego via Creator Expert models. Specifically the Ford Mustang and the VW Beetle. I'm usually more into construction machinery, but my last project just couldn't get my creative juices flowing! Anyway, there's not a great deal to say about this model other than I wanted to use the big shocks and have hand of god steering. I'll let the amateur pictures and video do the talking. As always constructive criticism welcome. Thanks for looking!
  13. It's not Technic, but..... Also used in creator turbo track racer 31070 For the door mechanism. (one of my favorite sets!)
