  1. What is the light grey ball part at the top of the yacht's mast?
  2. Love it! Now, if you could just rig up another servo connected to a dimmer switch...
  3. Don't worry, it's a (slowly) ongoing process! 42060 is on my list already. In general, I like to include as much info as possible, so videos, topics, instructions - whatever you have - is good to include. Thanks, will add it to my spreadsheet.
  4. Some long overdue updates: New posts added for 42048 (4 C-models), 42052 (2), 42053 (1), 42054 (7) & 42055 (5); A couple of additional C-models added to 42038 & 42039; Running total: 107 C-models documented from 23 sets; Running total still to be added: 27 C-models from a further 9 sets (not counting single user indexes) - which means, comparing to the last update, that I'm overhauling the rate of C-model production at a rate of 2 models every 5 months, so at this rate I'll clear my input spreadsheet in about 6 years' time. Or I could just pull my finger out and get it done

  10. Remember the Compressor Truck (as it was known in the UK) fondly - from my and my school friends' jaws dropping when it first appeared in the Lego catalogue, to the point when I stupidly sold it on as a too-cool-for-lego teenager (fortunately I held onto my other 90s flagships!). And yes, the B-model is well worth the build with it's automatic pneumatic loop. Also shows up the modern pneumatic sets on how pneumatic tube routing ought to be done!
  11. Thanks all, seems like consensus favours the Arocs - I shall consider the matter!
  12. Heh, exactly the answer I was expecting. For the sake of argument, leaving the availability aspect out of it, and assuming I can only buy one in total, which would you go for?
  13. I suspect I can probably guess the answer to this, but which of the following should I go for: 42043 Arocs @ £130, 42054 Claas @ £90, or 42069 Extreme Adventure @ £120? Like the look of all three, but can probably only justify one (if that!) at the moment. Like the pneumatics of the Arocs, and motorised stuff of the first two, but realistically after the joy of building, most of my technic sits on the shelf until I dismantle/rebuild it. Love the look of the Claas, but the lack of B-model is a major negative for me. 42069 looks great but fewer interesting functions. Your thoughts please! Edit: P.s. I have plenty of old flagships from the 90s, but 42009 is my only major modern set so far (so closest to the Arocs in form/function of the three).
  14. Thanks @BrickbyBrickTechnic, had seen some of those but not all of them - will add to my list. Unfortunately, at the moment my life is such that only very sporadic updates are possible Noting this one down for future reference:
  15. That, and you didn't have to cut/tear part of the box to get in...
