  1. @Lipko I have been building for a number of years (5+) without any additions to my collection, and I don't feel like there is much I have missed out on, except maybe the new clutch gears. Everything is very much viable and useful. As for degraded parts, despite my abuse through trial trucks, I haven't broken many parts, and with some encouragement from pliers, most "broken" pins can be fixed. But I digress.
  2. If you are looking for another build with the same sets, go check out ReBrickAble and simply search for the set you have, like "9398 B-model". Otherwise, just build something. Anything. Google "machinery" and see what interests you, then try to make it. Don't sell the Lego you have unless you are giving up on Lego forever, because once gone, those parts will cost way more time effort and money to get back.
  3. The tipper trailer mechanism is amazing. Love to see it it implemented in such a small scale, great work overall.

    One Ping Only - Status of Lego SciFi RP

    I have 4 months left until I get my degree and finally have time for building again, and I would love to see the story-based building of AG alive again, because I would love to participate this time around.

    I'm always impressed by the fact that every time I log into this site, another car or vehicle I have never heard of is built for me to examine and admire. Excellent work, especially with the small scale.

    Order parts for a MOC or set via bricklink

    Damn, that's a beautiful collection, Berthil. Did you do the display cases custom? @Good old Lego builder I just recently ordered a lot of parts from Bricklink. The best thing, in my opinion, is to first narrow the list of stores to just your country (I am in the U.S. so I never ship from Europe, it's too expensive). After this, look up each part and see where it is cheapest. Do your best to limit the number of stores you order from, but sometimes it just isn't possible. Good luck!
  7. I saw this got posted over The Lego Car Blog, congrats! Those new tires are perfect for Tatra suspension, but honestly, I think the best part of the truck is the excellent rendition of the front grille, your shaping is spot-on.

    Just saw this while browsing on The Lego Car Blog! Congrats on making an appearance over there! I really like the shaping of this car, especially the grille and headlights. But the best part is that you went so far as to include the entire exhaust system, all the way along the underside! Kudos for that. :)

    Finally got around to taking some good photos. Here they are. I might make some more adjustments to the model in the future, but for now, with the contest closed, I'm gonna wait. [TC20] 8408 [TC20] 8408 [TC20] 8408

    Thanks @Maaboo35, I'm still trying to work on the fenders, but not much so far... Might go back to the first idea, and add a couple cheese slopes. These fender panels don't work well in the space on this model.

    Alright, got a few tweaks in... Added some headrests, and started playing around with the fenders (these are my only yellow panels btw). Also fixed the rollcage. [TC20] 8408 Revamp [TC20] 8408 Revamp

    Thanks! I also miss the triangle shapes, but I don't have any yellow panels that would even out the shape. I'm gonna work on the flex axles' shape, I wish I had longer ones... If I had those, I would use them. Also, on this model, the fenders are already very close to the tires, anything larger would end up touching. It was not me you suggested this set to, but I'm glad you like it. I wish I could do the front fenders better, I might have to cave and use a few cheese slopes... The flex axles have a planned fix, and so do the headrests. More photos will come after some updates. Cheers! - Leo
