    Old Steam Tugs in scale 1:40

    That is also how I discovered your amazing creations and this thread. Wow! Very impressive. I had not realised they were mini figure scale. I’m a big fan of Edwin’s creations and look forward to following your work as well. Keep up your great work!

    Audi R8 Spyder RWD - 42083 B model

    Cool that you managed to build it as a B-model. You even found the parts to create the Audi sign! This makes it much easier for others to build. To my knowledge there are not many Bugatti B-models. Thanks for sharing and for making instructions!

    [MOC] Ferrari 365GT4 BB

    I had not intended to buy 42125, but seeing this model and reading about your plans, I may have to reconsider ... Keep up your great work! I like the pop-up lights!

    [RUMORS] 6x6 Mercedes Zetros

    Let’s hope it lives up to these classics. Can it not be that the price is explained by the software development for the Control+ system? Maybe Lego sees remote control + fancy software as a way to justify high prices and differentiate itself from Chinese clone brands. Personally I would prefer more pieces and more complex builds than remote control which I try out once and that’s it.

    Fascinating as always! Happy new year!

    42131 - CAT D11T Bulldozer

    So we will get the missing B-model of the Liebherr that @eric trax has already created?
  7. I’m in awe! Not only an excellent MOC, but also great pictures that create the illusion we are dealing with the real thing. Truly impressive!

    [MOC] Unimog U400

    Wow! What an amazing MOC! I have a weak spot for the 8110 because it brought me back into Lego Technic. Really impressed by the looks, the compact size and all the features included. Respect! Would love to build this of course ... :-)

    42115 - Lamborghini Sian FKP 37

    I bought the Sian recently and the colour difference on some bricks is really striking. It is in particular visible on the front: I contacted Lego because one brick was missing, but I have not contacted them because of the colour differences.
  10. Very nice! I have a weak spot for Unimogs. The Lego Unimog made me rediscover Lego Technic and realise that adults can also like Lego.
  11. Another medium sized race car ... Maybe a bit better than the 42096. Pff ... Would it not be more exciting for teenage boys to have a working chassis with motor, gears, suspension and to see how things work and move? A build that actually challenges them? I remember I needed help the first time I build the 853. Anyway, I still hope Lego will one day bring out a new chassis only flagship model that will make the new generation of boys dream like I did of the 853 and its successors.

    [MOC] Volvo G970 Motor grader

    My compliments! You have nailed it and build the flagship set grader Lego should have brought out all these years. I have argued here often for such as set, but the response is always that this type of machinery is too rare so it will not happen. A real shame because you have shown why graders are so fascinating. The implementation of all the functions is impressive and I also like how you put your grader next to the original for comparison. So thanks for taking up up the challenge and for even creating building instructions!

    Your Best Technic Bargains

    I bought the Robot inventor set 51515 today for 255 EUR. I don’t know if it is a real bargain, but I think it is a good price for such a new set. Look forward to building this during the Christmas holidays with my youngest daughter!

    [MOC] Pneumatic Excavator

    I realised the small size only by looking at the tracks. Truly impressive!

    Trying to decide...

    I meant indeed the 42056. There is a whole thread with MODs to the 42096 that can inspire you. A tip when buying Technic sets: look if there are alternative models on Rebrickable. Lego seems to have given up unfortunately on providing B models, but luckily others have stepped in. This adds value for money to the sets, extends the building pleasure and you become a better builder. The instructions are often more challenging and therefore more fun.
