    [MOC] BRICK SQUARE POST OFFICE

    Hey, after seeing this years official Modular: please hurry up with the instructions!
  2. I am quite sure that some people care, this is a discussion point that sometimes comes up in the knock-off forums. (Yes, I read those too sometimes.) As I am completely unskilled in technic Mocs - I have no experience in selling instructions, but l would be interested in how the sales are actually developing from the people who are recognized in the community...
  3. What do you guys think of the following thought? The sales of your BI actually go up, because a certain subset of the Lepin buyers recognize your work, and want to support you, although they have bought the set from china. I for myself feel tempted sometimes, because of the hassle (and shipping costs) of the necessary BrickLink orders. The convience is one factor that is not to be overlooked. Although I have not given in to the temptation, in that case I would still buy your instructions, for the reason given above...
  4. You, Sir, are officially my hero now! Many thanks!!!! Goes off to bricklink...
  5. Thanks for the reply, would an original Light&Sound Light Element work on the output of the Buwizz? Either directly, or with an adapter cable. Do you know?
  6. Can you do blinking lights with BuWizz already? My buwizz unit is sitting on the shelf waiting for the app to include customizable controls for a „Light&Sound-styled“ Fire Truck....

    Lego ucs falcon 10179 modifications

    Besides the fake lego thing - I like it very much - how much did you invest in parts to "modernize" it?

    MOD: 7745 with Power Functions

    Thank you for the inspiration! I did the same, just yesterday. I used my Buwizz box, which eliminated the need for an IR receiver. But I did not swap out the lights and cabling. What I was thinking, is could you reuse the existing cabling and lights, by creating an adapter cable from power functions to 12 v, by cutting a PF extension cord, and using the 2 outer (left and right) strands. Would that work? I tried the search, but I did not find something related to pf to 12 v conversion cable....

    How to fix? 12 Volt remote - Button gets stuck

    Just to give an update. I did not find time for opening the remote. My little boy (3,5 years old) saw me tinkering with the remote, and one thing lead to another, and we ended up playing with the trains for the whole day. But, I'll try to find time for it this week....

    How to fix? 12 Volt remote - Button gets stuck

    I will take pictures - I am probably untalented enough to figure out what the problem might be by myself anyway.... ;-)

    I assume it is gone as the typical 2 years shelf life has been reached already. Maybe some unsold stock is still available, but better hurry up....

    How to fix? 12 Volt remote - Button gets stuck

    Bluntly copied from quora: Just like there are many metals, there are many plastics that are very different from one another. Overall, plastics can be divided into two basic groups: Crystalline: Polypropylene, Polyethylene, Polyester (all types), Nylon Amorphous: Polycarbonate, Styrenics (including ABS), PVC The main ingredient in WD-40 is a light kerosene-like mineral oil, which is hydrocarbon based. Amorphous plastics and hydrocarbons don’t play well together: hydrocarbons will attack the chemical structure of amorphous plastics, breaking them down - essentially trying to “melt” them. In particular, Polycarbonate (PC) and Polystrene (PS). they are two named plastics on the WD-40 “do not use on these” list. Crystalline materials are unaffected by the hydrocarbons in WD-40, you can spray them as much as you wish. So, according to that wd40 seems not to be safe. Does anybody know what is likely to cause the button to get stuck? I know, that's guesswork....
