  1. Always when I get a chassis ready I am already thinking of the next project. This does mean that I do tend to finish builds in a longer timeframe that otherwise. This is what I do to keep the motivation going: I watch videos of the real cars on YouTube, throughout the building time. Also very important: when I choose what project to work on, it is always an exciting car for me, and not necessarily for everyone.
  2. All my models that I posted on my Rebrickable have been stolen and resold in China WITHOUT MY PERMISSION, either as sets (the BMW) or just as instructions (rest of them). It is sad, but on the bright side, it is proof that my work was good enough to be of interest to "them".
  3. This is a superb MOC that really incapsulates what technic is all about: Functions and Looks. The bodywork looks very impressive and is definitely a faithful representation of the real car. The functions are just incredible, and they definitely add a lot of value to this build. I feel that with this build, the standard of the technic supercar MOC was just raised to an astronomical level, and all of us MOCers should take notes and don't sleep on this one. One thought that keeps grinding me, is that even though this model is so spectacular in every way, I keep on thinking if this many functions is just way too many? If there is such a thing =) Congratulations on the model!
  4. We never get tired of those, it's just that the standards are so high that you need something really innovative to get the attention.
  5. The side view is absolutely splendid! I would think you should use Lox's Huracan solution for the headlights, as it seems to be the most faithful one to the real car. To be fair, the front is not up to the standard of the rest on the build, mainly the headlights and the front intakes. I believe you can do even better. Overall, even with the mentioned critiques, it is a cool car and good representation in lego 👍
  6. I'm an engineer, but I have learned about structural integrity, suspension designs, gearboxes, helicopter mechanics, strength principles. Also, since building with lego I've learned about photography, videography, production, emails, digital work, editing. Overall it was a massively positive experience!
  7. I think for what you are describing, you would need a Large motor. It has enough torque for most applications. Also, you can program the PU hub to make the motor run at a slow constant speed.
  8. Noticed that all of the pins and axels since 2020 got much softer. I keep them separate from my good old pins.
  9. I am also interested in this!
  10. I also found that the lego servo motors are unreliable, so I bought some copies from aliexpress and they seem to be rock solid. And for the price you don't really care that much if they break.
  11. This is super cool, nice ride!
