  1. [TC12] The Mean Machine

    I'm blown away. This model has such a finished look about it, at least on par with the Claas or Porsche. A property that's enhanced by your clean videography. Bravo.
  2. Technic 2017 Set Discussion

    Do we have any new informations regarding this? It's strange to keep looking into the 2017-discussion thread when we already have preliminary pictures of the 2018 sets
  3. [WIP] Stabilized frame

    The front outriggers really are ingenious. I love such compact builds. I minor problem i see is your rear axle: the axles holding the half-beams are orthogonal to the ground. Over time or with big loads they will get pushed out.
  4. Land Carrier Khagaan

    This is a superb set of models. Reminds me a lot of "Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak". I really dig the artstyle
  5. General Part Discussion

    If i remember correctly the Porsche rims were exclusive to the set.
  6. The dynamic stability of this suspension is an interesting question. Here a simple sketch depicting the centre of gravity and steering axles: My thoughts on cornering: here, two forces are interacting: - the centrifugal force, pulling the centre of mass outward, increasing the steering force - gravity, pulling the centre of mass downward and decreasing the steering force. This setup depends on the grip of the tires and the centre of gravity. I'm not so sure with the high speed stability, my brain just locks up thinking about the whole axle turning
  7. Those lights are a nice addition. For me, the first version looks more like a creature, the second more like a buggy.
  8. Nico71's Creations

    That's a great idea, i love such images. Have you uploaded them somewhere for us to download or should we screenshot from youtube? Could you make images of the mechanics too for your next video?
  9. [TC12] Formula Punch

    This is awesome, i have 8257 too and i think they were the most played with models in my collection. I love the idea of boxing any car on the side away
  10. That's a nice minimalistic car, love it The back screams for nice big exhaust flames I remember building something in this style with the System Spring Wheels Holder and and Hinge Bricks.
  11. Hmkay, guess i just was hyped for such a massive Technic model
  12. Thanks for clearing that up. Do all those gears and linear actuators do anything? And do you have any more pictures of it from your trip?
  13. So i recently found out there's a giant Technic Dinosaur in the LEGO House in Billund. Not coming near Denmark any time soon i try to find information and pictures about it online, this is what i found so far: in this video from LEGO it's said that it was built in collaboration with AFOLS: In an article from promobricks one can see some of the subassemblies of the outer skin: The inner structure seems completely black, i wonder if there's a steel substructure: (taken from this article at zusammengebaut) And finally here's the highest resolution picture i could find from brothers brick: Is there anybody on the forum who has some more information about this? (Is this even the right subforum?)
  14. My mechanical clocks

    That's a good point i haven't thought about. Thanks for explaining!
  15. My mechanical clocks

    This is great. Although i'm always a bit put off by the friction fitted precision parts, clocks are my favourite type of technic model. I'm still hoping for an official model PS: have you tried using a pull-back motor as energy storage?
