  1. This is great. I haven't seen this color since 8257. And never in such a fitting combination with red. I'm eagerly awaiting a picture of the assembled model.
  2. Oh man, i remember building that robot arm, then simply copying the demo-code and marvelling at all the intricate movements. I think the instructions were hidden somewhere in the software. How are you programming your RCX?
  3. This is an incredible build. Do you have any pictures of the internals? I'm really curious how you managed to power all these fans.
  4. Another point for @Didumos69's list should be: ... make sure the bevel gears are supported on the rear side (as is the case in his example. bad would be to replace the 20t gear with the flat version and a bushing) To reduce unnecessary friction in @Didumos69's example, i would replace the Technic Pin Connector Hub with 2 Pins with a Technic Axle and Pin Connector Perpendicular 3L with Centre Pin Hole. This way the output-hole is guaranteed to be coaxial to your output-axle.
  5. 24: 10 8: 6 19: 4 2: 3 10: 2 12: 1 I really like this contest. Voting was difficult as there were entries in completely different directions. Some focused on design, some on mechanics and some on presentation. I wish i could give more points to more contestants
  6. Blakbird Collection Liquidation

    @Blakbird, what's your timeframe? Do you want to give it some time for the word to spread? Maybe there's a rich AFOL in Dubai wanting to get your whole collection? I think you could push the museum-idea further. Maybe there is one in Europe willing to buy all your MOCs, including shipping. Or maybe even LEGO themselves. But those certainly aren't fast-selling options. I'll post this thread in the subreddit, there are some interesting personalities on this website
  7. That's a really cool project. Have you tested the gearbox under load? I'm anxious about the 16t input gear not being directly braced to the following gear. Also the 24t gears on the tracks seem like they could work themselves loose pretty quickly.
  8. Blakbird Collection Liquidation

    That's really sad to hear. I always hoped to come to America one day to visit "Blakbirds Technic Museum" On a related note @Blakbird: Have you considered asking a museum to buy it from you?
  9. Those are great tips. [OT:] Have you ever tried to make a clock with a remontoir? Like i tried to do here (i hope its okay for me to post my own thread ): Is the 40tooth gear so efficient because of the small angle its making between each tooth-jump? If so, have you tried making an escapement based on the new 60 tooth turntable?

    To save you some hassle, here's my try of explaining it: Make a list of your Top 5 entries. Then copy the point values from another voting post or the explanation point. The difficult bit for me is choosing the entries and their order
  11. This is really a great competition. It's awesome what creativity was spark from such a simple premise. It's going to be hard to decide on which entries to vote Although i'm biased towards clockwork-mechanisms, the vehicles are very creative. Will the voting be the usual Formula 1 point scoring?

    Really nice video. You managed to capture the LEGO-Batman humour quite well

    here's my final entry with some more pictures. My main concern is the horrendous phone-cam quality The Click Counter A clockwork mechanism displaying the clicking sounds it generated by a set of two concentric arms. Features: Planetary motor mount for uninterrupted operation even during wind-up. Torque equalizer: a mechanism converting the spring-energy of the wind-up-motor into a more steady gravity-induced torque. Aerodynamic dampener: preventing damage through sudden bursts of movement by fan blades geared up 81:1. Escapement build completely "in-system" and geometrically locked. No adjustments necessary. Two concentric hands geared 1:7 Overview: Backside: And the not so important belly shot : Again, i want to thank all of you for your support. I never expected such a positive feedback. This really is a pleasant community

    Thanks to you guys i built a second version. Now i'm editing a new video, hoping to be ready before Jim closes the entry topic In the meantime, here's a comparison pic: And an uninterrupted video of it running:
