    42113 Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey

    I'm interested, but you should start a new topic. Once that's done though you should also share a link in this thread

    Oh good lord. I imagine that'll be easy to fix though thankfully

    Seems like there's a fair bit of slack in the engine tilting. Bit of a shame, but otherwise quite a nice set (if not for the really long tail)
  4. It’d be a better bet to use slicker tyres if you wanna see it drift

    Nice, the rotors seem to spin quite fast
  6. I’d go with what Prez said. A 42108 and a 42097 will give you heaps of useful structural pieces, as well as multiple gears, turntables, linear actuators, wheels and treads, all of which will be endlessly helpful for a novice builder. While one 42082 has electronics, its large wheels restrict MOCs to larger scales which’ll be difficult for a novice. In any case, you can buy power functions separately on BrickLink. If you want him to MOC with it as a novice, don’t get him a 42082 yet. With a 42108 and 42097 he’ll be able to make literally anything he wants
  7. I'd argue that 42094's a good starter set if you can find it secondhand for cheapish

    Also, look at those set numbers - they're ancient. The lastest one (8043) was almost a decade ago, so these functions might as well be new. Technically you're right but the point is almost entirely useless

    Uh... no? Your argument held no water, therefore it was a bad argument. I supported my claim with good arguments

    That's a bad argument - you can make that argument for any vehicle that gets repeated. Almost every 2H model this year offers something new or not seen in ages, with exception to the Lamborghini. The Volvo has an RC gearbox, the cement truck has a working drum and the tiltrotor is a tiltrotor

    Yeah I think that's TLC's reasoning here too. They wanna have a go at using C+ as a servo

    I just realised, there's no side view mirrors D:

    Without saying what the info actually is, what’s the source?
  14. Not to minimod, but I'd refrain from using the L word here, because they regularly engage in community IP theft so we don't wanna give them a platform. That and forum rules Did they not offer money?

    Can’t an AAA hub have two rocker switches on the top of the battery box, with some lever mechanism pressing them? I don’t see anything about this model that demands an axle hole connection
