    Alternatives to technic chain links?

    Short technic lift arms in conjunction with various technic pins can make some strong/ tough chains. I guess they are more like tracks/links than chains though as they don't bend in all directions. My favorite combination is the technic double pins with 1x2 lift arms. If you use longer lift arms you can use the empty hole(s) to attach stuff which opens up all kinds of possibilities

    If you could pick one recolor

    1x2 plate in transpurple or at least make a 1x1 plate in trans purple. While we are at it how about a 1x2 plate in trans green. At least that one exists as a 1x1 plate already

    always awesome to use new techniques. I just received a bunch of the stump costumes to play with myself too. Great use of those ball joints!

    Where can I get cheap LEGO parts

    Bricklink has everything you could imagine
  8. I feel that the majority of clone brand type baseplates are not of the same quality as lego.

    Support structure for cylinder

    hinges (of your choice) in a circle at both ends filled in sturdy enough to keep the round shape then attached to the plates. Even 1x2s with round 1x1s or 1x3s with round 1x1s will work fine for the whole thing. Just use snot bricks to get all the plates to stick to the interior, exterior, or both. It will be very sturdy with solid ends the smaller train tracks may be in the vicinity of 31 studs for end cap circles, but I doubt they are exactly 31? I think 1x2 snot bricks with the snots on both sides in conjunction with round 1x1s would be perfect with the ends filled in. You can be pretty exact in your diameter that way
  10. bricklink what you need. Pick a brick wall is great for whatever they may randomly have. I don't think sets are very helpful at all

    Happy Shiptember to all. I have had a flurry of large bricklink orders arrive and at least one still on the way in the past couple of weeks. I now look forward to this month more than any other as far as lego building goes. I sort of get a pass in keeping the house more lego dirty than normal (parts everywhere all over the house where they shouldn't be). I have a concept ready to build which has transformed greatly over what I thought I was probably going to build. I like the free form nature of SHIP building more than trying to build a real ship. It is hopefully going to be fun seeing what I totally produce beyond my basic shape. I am really excited to get building today and couldn't contain my excitement. Enjoy your own ship building. You can justify all the money you spent that you shouldn't have by this one contest. Have fun. Build big
  12. Alternating white as a minor color splattered in with brown may achieve the look of those shingles. You know maybe 10 percent white and 90 brown I have been mixing tan and light bluish gray with some old light grays in there too to make wood shingles that look like our weathered houses where I live. I am using layered 1x2 tiles instead of cheese slopes most of the time

    Legos become brittle after storage

    Bricks of all kinds exposed to lots of sunlight absolutely become brittle over time
