  1. Simply stunning, very well done.
  2. Looking forward to this very much. Will you be doing instructions/lxf file or something similar? Thanks
  3. I'm really liking the look of this, following with great interest. Keep up the good work. Chip.
  4. Hello Classic man Once I'd opened the 2nd file in LDD I used the "hide" function to hide the "new" pieces that have been added since step 1 one at a time (taking care to make sure you could actually take them off if you had the model in your hands), then when you've stripped the model back to what you had after step 1 you simply undo the steps one at at time and add the real pieces. I hope you understand and that it helps you. Regards Chip.

    "I built the loader... but could never get it, or the cart working reliably.... it always seemed like the cart + M motor were underpowered, or straining too much to drive the whole loader mechanism" I had exactly the same problems. I would love a more reliable set up. Thanks to everyone who is making all this possible.

    @ Blakbird " The wheel is clearly visible right in the middle of the front rail." It is when you know where it is and now I've seen it, but it took me quite a while to notice it, appointment made for new glasses. Thanks Chip

    Hi everybody First of all a very big THANK YOU to everybody involved with recreating these wonderful machines and the instructions so that we can all enjoy them I've just started on the Bucket Wheel Tower and Six Heads I also have Lift Triggered by a Stuck Ball approx 80% complete 1 small mistake I think in the instructions is on page 73 (steps 23/24) there are black pins going in where there is already a 48989 cross block, easy enough to move said cross block by 1 hole On page 80 (step 56) there is a black pin and a small wheel and I cannot for the life of me see where they go, any help will be much appreciated Thanks again Chip

    Hi, No red flex axles for front mudguards, no red round things behind the cab and no fuel tanks, but apart from that I think it's all there, although the paint shop painted the doors in the wrong colour!! Very, very impressed at it's climbing abilities with only 1 XL motor, also I have been thinking about having a go at Madocca's beast (with 2 motors) for a while, now I'm going to raid the piggy bank and definitely have a go. Thanks again for the instructions which were very good and pretty easy to follow.

    Hi, 1st post here on Eurobricks. Just to let you know that all your efforts with the instructions have not been wasted here is a little proof. As you can see some pieces are in the wrong colour (I'm just getting back into Lego after approx 40 yrs and also I'm new to technic), but I can only use what I have and I'm sure I'll soon find I have not got some pieces, but I'll keep going as far as I can. So far the instructions seem to be working pretty well, I sometimes jump forward a step or 2 looking for a different angle to make sure I'm right.# Thanks for doing the instructions and I'll keep you posted on progress, but it could be a while.
