  1. Thanks for the suggestion! I don't really like using bricks, but maybe in this case... They do give a nice stiff connection.
  2. Thanks! I tested the thin pendulum arm I showed earlier, but their was too much slack in the connections, which gives some undesired resonance in the arm when the pulback generates the most force. So I will stick to beams for the pendulum arm instead. This will probably be the final design. An all black pendulum arm looks a little too massive, so I opted for a white line in the center of the arm. I'm now waiting for the necessary white parts to arrive...

    That's what I was wondering too...?

    Excellent work! The drivetrain and the chassis are very well done. The symmetry in the dual drivetrain is a very 'good smell' imo. And I love the bodywork style !
  5. Lamborghini Centenario

    Okay, that makes sense, although... When I look at your comparison image I"d say the front section of the body has the correct width. But the image also shows the nose of your replica is one stud too long. In addition, the bottom line of the front window in your replica sits one stud behind the line that marks the beginning of the hood in the real model. This makes the perceived window-hood border one stud off too. This is not wrong or something, I'm just trying to rationalize how I perceive this model. I like to do that too, but when a car is meant to be a replica of a real model and I feel something is off, I also try to rationalize my perception.

    I've been looking at this a little more trying to grasp why I feel the model is not accurate. But I think I know why; the hood is much too long compared too the front window. In the real model the front window is more curved and surpasses the front wheel axes. That makes the hood look much shorter than in your replica.

    This has turned into something very creative! As for the housing, you could make it even more steam punk. Perhaps also add something that makes more noise.

    I don't agree. Maybe most mechanical functions have been done, but they always can be done better.

    Nice! Simple, but very flowing !
  10. Thanks! I don't.know exactly, but going by the 1m:32s I filmed it makes about 50 LEGO minutes, 10 LEGO hours and 5 clock cycles (2.5 LEGO days) in 18 minutes. Thanks Ludo! My father also has a (wooden) clock with only a face and no house, which is where the inspiration comes from. Correct!

  12. Aesthetics and Technics

    This does not amaze me. This forum has a very social vibe. Even my some what harsh OP results in a very sophisticated discussion.
  13. Aesthetics and Technics

    Btw, some responses are about recognition. I may have sounded annoyed in the OP, but for me that has nothing to do with recognition. I feel very much recognized. I have been referenced by famous builders in their latest MOCs, which is about the biggest compliment I can think of.
  14. Aesthetics and Technics

    I actually completely agree with you and practically feel the same way. I enjoy this forum and it's diversity very much. Only every now and than this feeling pops up that I somehow long back to the old school Technic days and wish the entire community would go back there with me. Maybe it's just me getting old. I'm sorry if my OP was discriminating or offending in any way. I think it was a bit of an unkind way of sharing this uncomfortable feeling I sometimes get. I don't know if it was a wise thing to share it here. It does on the other hand give a lot of interesting responses that all make sense. You are right about the vs. connotation. I rephrased the topic name. Like I said, my OP was maybe a bit of an unkind way of sharing a feeling of disappointment or longing back. I wouldn't want to open the dark door you are referring too any further than I might have done.
  15. Aesthetics and Technics

    This has triggered quite some response, which I think is good. I didn't read everything yet, but I sure will later. My OP sure reflects some annoyance. Using the term showing-off maybe was a bit harsh; it refers to the extreme side of the spectrum. I was triggered by the Holes in Technic MOCs topic, which made me wonder, how did we diverge from the core Technic theme so much. I wanted to express that I sometimes feel disappointed when I see the discussion is about aesthetics rather than Technic more and more. I wanted to trigger some discussion about this tendency. However, my personal disappointment is no reason to change anything. I did say I sometimes wish showing MOCs would be in a different forum, but apparently there is a need for both aspects in a single forum and that's perfectly okay. This is how the forum has grown on the community.
