  1. As of lately, Eurobricks reminds me of old dial-up webpages and I often just give up on trying to load a post. Did something change with some technical feature for this site? It's kind of sad since I have the fastest internet in my area (300mbps) until "they" run new cabling.

    REVIEW: 75222 Betrayal at Cloud City

    Thank you for the detailed review. I did not care for this set at first, but now it is growing on me. There seems to be so much potential for modding it and I'm curious as to what others will come up with.
  3. Anyone in the USA notice that their B&P orders are being filled slower than usual? I placed an order on July 30th that still hasn't been processed. Unfortunately, it was the only time I ordered from them for a project (UCS Falcon 10179), which now happens to be the final parts needed.
  4. I prefer using Rebrickable to get these files onto BrickLink. Brickstock will work with a bit more effort and time.
  5. I was able to buy the boat rigging pieces that go to the UCS falcon for cheap (~$1.50 ea). For a while they were quite rare and very expensive. Part #47996
  6. Excellent job! Now I need to buy another of the new quidditch sets. Is that on two 32x32 baseplates or something else?

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Preorders aren't allowed on BL and they won't be added to the catalog until closer (or even after) release day. Search "Lego Harry Potter series" on ebay and you will find some. $236 for a box.
  8. Winter village station. BL part #75902pb11
  9. Yes, that works fine and doesn't have the obvious yellow bush showing on the inside.
  10. The giant wagon wheel window connection did not work well in my set, leaving a big gap between the wheel and the building. A quick fix is to grab the extra yellow 1/2L Technic bush and swap it where the black 1L pin joiner round connector is (that you are supposed to use). The gap will fully close and look fine from the outside, plus it doesn't require any new parts right away (for a better looking fix)

    Very nice! Your model is the perfect display size. Here's another (bigger) version that you might like: http://www.moc-pages.com/moc.php/392295 I used the LDD files to build this about a year or two ago. If I remember correctly, there's a small number of places that use digital glue, but all in all it was doable with some modifications.
  12. I think I'd just prefer that they stick to one blue, whichever shade that happens to be. Right now we have parts spread over 4 shades of blue with limited selection for each. Imagine if they only chose one or two instead. Many more models could be built in blue.
  13. I voted using Chrome, however the results option disappears. Version 60.0.3112.101 (Official Build) (64-bit)
  14. There are a few factors that make it so that I cannot. Primarily it is my skill level. Also, the motors are connection points and the instructions aren't quite a thorough as a Lego instruction book. Keep in mind that I'm not complaining. I'm just hoping for a workaround. Maybe I will be able to modify it after see the undercarriage fully build with fake motors. To msk6003: I actually want to build brick built motors with real pieces. Update: I've added a photo to show how complex this model is. There are 5 motors crammed into this small area (3 directly behind the seats, 1 under seats, and a servo in the front that can't be seen). The picture displayed here is full size for the instructions themselves. This is by no means a novice created supercar.
  15. I'm posting to see if anyone has an LDD or LDraw file(s) for brick built samples of actual motors (mainly for connection points). Specifically, I need L & Servo, as I want to build the Icarus super car (by Madoca1977) motor-less*. Besides the electronic components, I likely have most of the parts and the car looks like it would be nice to display. Thanks! * I'm not at the builder level where I could just visualize and recreate the undercarriage. I wasn't thinking at first. It doesn't need to look like a motor, instead it just needs the connection points. I've already made a fake L-motor out of technic, so I can likely do a servo.
