    Project GC in 1:40 and 1:100

    Beautiful. i recognize the ship :) ... amazing build. Question: on the long deck between steering house and helipad the shipyard showed a black boat before GC was sold to the client. Your model shows a salon or room at that place, is that a modification by the client? Or is this something like GC2? :) Can't wait to see your model finished.

    42082 - Rough Terrain Crane

    I just finished step 661 in book one, the last step before the wheel come on. The carrier is sitting on the outriggers and is already sagging in the middle. When I turn the carrier upside down, it is easy to bend the entire structure by pushing on both ends with a finger each. It seems that they forgot an layer of long longitudinal liftarms at the very bottom to increase the stiffness of the chassis.
  3. Lego has made a Bucket Truck 8071 a couple of years back, it's based on the smaller 49mm tires. I always thought the driver cabin looks very similar to a International truck, perhaps that gives you some inspiration. https://brickset.com/sets/8071-1/Bucket-Truck
  4. Wow amazing. You have a great sense for shape and scale. I wish you'd work for Lego Group as a technic designer.Good to see you back building models for us to admire.
  5. An American truck is usually wider than European trucks. My rule of thumb is that a European local truck is about 2.3 meters, a European 40t semi is about 2.5 meters, and American Trucks are about 100 inches = 2.7 meters wide. The Lego truck 8285 Tow Truck (American) is 19 studs wide, the 8258 Crane Truck is 17 studs wide. With that I believe 19 Studs is the best size for your International truck. I can't wait to see your finished model, I was wondering myself how to build that truck cabin, as these trucks are everywhere in the U.S.
  6. Can two motors be controlled with one channel on a regular IR-Receiver (V1)? I have the Rock Crawler with the V2, but that receiver is difficult to get.
  7. It looks much better than the LOG official set 42082
  8. Awesome, congratulations!

    42083 - Bugatti Chiron

    I'm wondering how we did arrive at that every Lego set has to be perfect out of the box... this set got two major things wrong, the W16 engine does not use one crankshaft and the all wheel drive is missing. Now that is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy Lego as it was meant to be, we can all go and figure out a solution... see you over in the MODs discussion :)
  10. Amazing model. I'm glad you're back and we get to enjoy your fantastic creations. Did you build this with smaller tires than the two 6-wheeled cranes?
  11. What a beautiful MOC! I hope you will be back creating amazing MOCs for us. I'm a big fan of your work.
  12. Amazing model, congratulations for your creation and thank you for sharing. I just drove by a HS895 yesterday at the Goethals Bridge in New York and your model represents the real crane very well.
