  1. This is fantastic. Small but full of detail. Welcome to Eurobricks!
  2. Lamborghini Centenario

    Hey @Didumos69, yes I find myself rationalizing space and perception as well. It’s what makes us tick, as designers. I guess sometimes I’ve satisfied most of the requirements on my build, and those last 5-10% of the visual queues I have trouble noticing / changing for the better. Still learning 😊 @TeamThrifty - thanks for the comments. Cheers! Hey @mandylion7! I find I can never satisfy all, as everyone has different perception of what they feel is good or bad on a build. And in such a large scale, there is much more to discuss. None the less thanks for the feedback 😊 Yes, honest feedback from all thanks!! My brother @DugaldIC and I have some more joint builds coming this year, very pumped to work on them with him. Regarding the color... There aren't much options. I have used SO many black specific parts its not really possible to be different.
  3. [MOC] Mitsubishi Pajero

    Wow... I love how compact your designs always are. The looks are splendid and great functions to boot. Keep on building!! Can’t wait for the new one
  4. Lamborghini Centenario

    These are my sentiments exactly :)

    Hello @Didumos69, thanks for the suggest, but as you can see below, the front window is exactly where it should be. The real issue as stated before was the width. You can see my model is narrower than the real car, this is the issue. The photo you provided above is a skewed angle of the car. And trust me, this car has angles. Maybe more so the window is too long above. Lamborghini Centenario- top view overlay by lachlan cameron, on Flickr

    Thanks @JTS! It was a different approach that I took on that one... Thanks!! I tried to apply all the aggressive lines into the Centenario to be true to its legacy. @technic_addict, I've revised the doors for minimal gap. Guys, what are your thoughts? Before or after? I must admit, the new door design actually works better than the previous version... Lamborghini Centenario- new doors by lachlan cameron, on Flickr Lamborghini Centenario- new doors by lachlan cameron, on Flickr The door has a different look to it when open now because the top panel has been switched for the opposite side. There is a small gap in the door now as seen below... It is only noticeable when open.

  7. Lamborghini Centenario

    Hey Mysh! Maybe in a new build, but at this point it’s a bit late to revise the door. Especially since it opens so well. Also I’m not a huge fan of pneumatics. They need a pump. Hey brunojj, each door is attached to a single M-motor. Each motor is attached to a s-brick function. Regarding the speed, I’m pretty sure my batteries were half alive!! I’ve got 2x buwizz 2.0. Would be interesting what speed they achieve. Below is a very preliminary photo of the framework. As always @DugaldIC and I made the frame as compact as possible to maximize bodywork design. Also, I forgot to show how the batteries are turned on in the youtube edit, so I made a small edit on Flickr. Each panel by the seat are pressed to turn on each battery. lambo Centenario - Flickr by lachlan cameron, on Flickr
  8. Hey all! I've finished the instructions for the 1970 Porsche Can Am. They're avail. on rebrickable: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-12233/Loxlego/1970-porsche-can-am-42077-rally-car-c-model/#parts 1970 Porsche Can Am - Low rider by lachlan cameron, on Flickr
  9. Lamborghini Centenario

    Cheers @AFOLegofan66!! I've got a lot of tearing down to do... Instructions will be avail. soon! Thanks LvdH!! Thanks Jurss! I was and will always be trying to add as much creativity to my builds. This was a very close solution to the front which is very hard to replicate, and I liked the result. Regarding the wipers, I feel they are perfect size for this scale. Thanks dude! Instructions will be avail soon :) Thanks very much @Edwin Korstanje! Means a lot coming from a HUGE builder Hi Brick by brick, thanks man. The front is very close to the original in height actually. Cheers! cool Aventador, thanks. Cheers! Hi @MajklSpajkl! Yes, I did add a lot of personal touches to this build. I am trying not to follow the building styles I have already used, and will continue to use different technics to always be original, over a perfect replica. Hey Technic Addict! Thanks!! And yes, the doors have a bit of a gap as I fell in love with outer shape of them, yet they didn't perfectly line up with the frame. A very simple modification (almost as easy as flipping that top panel for the opposite side) would allow the door to sit flush. I will try and modify this area so it is flush. Thanks for noticing :) haha right on! And can't thank you enough for the help and ideas through the process! haha yes, the model had to live up to the real car :) Hey Brunojj! I can understand your thinking of the model, as its not the correct width. This car should have been 30.4 studs wide, but I went with 29. I also added 2 studs between the wheels which lengthened the car even more. In retrospect, I could have left the width between the wheels, due to the narrower body. Your ratio of scaling abilities are amazing, I'm still not at the point where I can reverse engineer that ratio like you!! I did follow the blue print quite well, this is an extremely low and long vehicle. Regarding the speed of my builds, I always say to myself, "tonight I will finish the doors". And I try my best to make doors in 1 sitting. This is my process, which keeps my build time minimum. Those rims are Black Chrome from Bubul. I highly recommend you checking the store out. Thanks for the constructive criticism! Hey! Thanks for the interest! I wanted to do something completely different for this car, and having a new rear spoiler was top of the list. As I continue to build, I feel I will be doing as many different styles to ensure I am not mimicking my previous builds. The song is definitely a stranger things remix!! Hey VK! Well, if you look at the real Centenario, the rear diffuser is in correct location, length, with and height, so if I mimic an odd car, It may have the same odd look to it. I may have been better to use black panels with painted tips, so the square inside of the diffuser doesn't stand out. Trying to push for new things :) Thanks! Yessir! You're correct. When I finished the model I realized the scaling was a bit off. None the less it was a tough car to replicate. Thanks all for the comments, I will keep pushing for new and bigger things!
  10. The new Lamborghini Centenario represents a new, extremely precious piece in Lamborghini's one-off strategy. It is a perfect example of the innovative design and the engineering skills of the bull-branded manufacturer. The best tribute to the 100th anniversary of the birth of Mr. Ferruccio Lamborghini, a man who managed to create a world-class brand, and who always believed that nothing is impossible, thus producing legendary and extraordinary vehicles that made history for super sports cars. The front Suspension was built By my brother DugaldIC, to ensure accuracy to the real supercar. The front suspension is work of art, blending real supercar suspension into Technic Lego. Thanks again for all your support @DugaldIC and @KD123! Lamborghini Centenario by lachlan cameron, on Flickr The Car sports front, rear and engine lights, controlled separately with 2 S-bricks and 2 Lipo Batteries. The gearing is slightly more compact to the NSX, but same gear ratio. The gear shifter turns the front lights on and off, the rear wing deploys manually, and each door has its own M-motor. The front hatch has just enough room for a travel bag, matching the red and black colour combo. I have created structure differently by using the center console for a row of vertical 5x7 frames that provide a stiffness through the center. I have modified this car to have Chrome rims, actuators, pistons and exhaust. Check out this BL store for great prices on chrome products: https://store.bricklink.com/Bubul?p=Bubul&itemID=124734521#/shop?o={"invID":"124734521"} Chrome engine bits I've left a few gaps to show off the suspension in the bodywork... And added windshield wipers. The doors are slightly revised with more movement upward and outward. Inspiration: Transformer Mode - Lamborghini Centenario
  11. Thanks! It turns out the rally car set had more odd number of parts than anything I’ve seen before! Thanks @Jurss 😎 i would love to put this thing together again with proper panels to suit the real car. Yes, that was @DugaldICs idea 💡 Yes, I will be doing Instructions for sure Thanks @technic_addict 😊 Right on! Thanks @ZeDoC and welcome to Eurobricks
  12. Porsche Carrera GT

    Very nice looking! Lots of great functions in this build and looks are tops. Super cool
  13. After a grueling 10 hour dual build with my Brother Dugald, we have successfully completed a proper C-Model for the 42077 Lego Rally car. The car can have all the motors easily removed and an HOG steering can been added for a proper C-model. We managed to create completely new suspension, most notably the front suspension tuned in by none other that @DugaldIC with Ackerman steering :) This video was filmed with a Buwizz 2.0, 1 M-motor for drive that powers boxer V6 and servo. This build uses 100% of the parts from the rally car.

    This one is spot on. The details and flow of the car is well executed. Nicely done!
  15. That car look amazing! Great work on the color combo.
