    Instructions: Paper vs. Digital

    I'm going to stick my head above the parapet and proclaim my preference for digital instructions - I spend a lot of my free time at my computer, and most of the desk/floor space is taken up by those pesky plastic building blocks. Ultimately, the convenience is a greater benefit to me than any argument over nostalgia.* However, paper instructions are, to put it bluntly, far more Ragnarok-proof than digital instructions could ever hope to be. So I do not want them to be discontinued. TLG are very close to what I would call the "happy medium," where A-models always have printed instructions and B-models are almost always digital. *The comprehension argument however, is new to me. Many thanks to @nerdsforprez for bringing it to my attention.

    Mario Kart

    Great MOC which nails the looks. I even spot room behind the BuWizz where PFx brick could be squeezed into; then the sounds will match the looks!
  3. Rest In Peace, Ingmar. Your MOCs were functional and beautiful - I could never see a brick out of place on any of them. Thank you Jim for making this thread. If it's in line with his family's wishes, then I believe it would be a good way for the community to express its condolences.
  4. Hey! Builder! Leave those pins alone! All in all you're just another brick in the wall.

    RC Maus Tank

    The whole series does if you're interested. Although as far as weird anime series go, Girls und Panzer is as tame and wholesome as they come. No nudity, no profanity - just high school girls in tanks. In the meantime, this is part of the clip @efferman uploaded, with English subtitles. The video quality isn't as good, but the translation seems accurate: Every episode can probably be found on Youtube by now, if you're willing to search for them.
  6. I was, damn late shift on Christmas Eve. I should really learn to say no to covering colleagues. Got the next 10 days off though, and triple time will go some way to make up for it! Now if only there was a large Technic set for me to gift myself...
  7. On a related note, what is the performance - and propensity for wear/damage - like in fast mode? I'm not planning on buying another BuWizz 2.0 until I see the changes @Ron1 mentioned implemented* so I'd be using a BuWizz 2.0 and an older 1.0. *I was pleased to see the faults acknowledged publicly, but it's going to take more than words before I commit to another purchase.

    42083 - Bugatti Chiron

    That's what I get for not opening my Porsche yet ... thanks. The reductions should be a bit larger, given that the MSRP is likely to be a lot higher. At least that's how I'm going to convince myself that spending £200+ on a set for the first time ever is a good deal!

    42083 - Bugatti Chiron

    I'd gladly take your advice, but this is currently outside my neighbour's house: And this is the only film playing at my local cinema... Back on topic somewhat - Was there a unique number on the Porsche? I'd normally wait for a cheaper price, but I'm a little worried that this will fly off the shelves.

    Well then, a new age of gearboxes awaits.

    BuWizz or SBrick?

    To paraphrase @Didumos69: But if it has to be a choice, as has been said before, it depends on whether raw power or precise control of multiple functions is more important to you. That's not to say the BuWizz is poor in terms of controlling functions, but even with the issues with the app sorted it still wouldn't offer the possibilities of the SBrick.

    42083 - Bugatti Chiron

    That's a good point. A commitment to wireframe or partial bodywork would no doubt look excellent; I would point to Sariel's Zonda as another good example of this. But if it has gaps to save pieces or as a result of unfocused design then it will be clear to see. While a fully panelled body would be the ideal for many, that would be another couple of hundred pieces at least, when adding in whatever changes would be made to the chassis to make sure the bodywork doesn't fall off if you look at it funny.

    Grum's Shed

    Let this be a warning to any errant Lego pieces out there - defying The Will of Grum is a gross error that will be punished severely. Glad to hear of the progress as always. What exactly did BusterHaus suggest that made connecting the links easier?

    [WIP] Le Mans Racers

    Another great model. I'm going to go against the grain slightly and profess my love for the original red/blue/white colour scheme, it's very reminiscent of the Nissan RC-series sportscars, and the curved panels at the back replicate the lines of the engine cover almost perfectly.
