  1. Very cool car! If I find some time I will attend in the competition too.
  2. Sounds convincing :) (made my day)
  3. Very cool and unusual machine - and great made in LEGO. See this MOC in the HOF too.
  4. To have no pictures at all Maybe next year they'll be not as strict as this year.
  5. It's not in the right proportions, but the overall impression comes near the real thing.
  6. Sort of, but not exactly. But it's very close (as far as I remember )
  7. As I don't own the 42009 I have to guess. I'll say: It's much shorter, but much wider too. It's a huge model. You can guess from the big Unimog tires. The boom is said to be longer than those from 42009. TLG said it is around one meter or longer. Comparing it to 42055 is not easy. My guess is, 42055 is bigger in size. Not as I can remember (that doesn't mean much) ... There were some basic parts used as support for the outriggers. Really many parts will go in the mechanics. It will have a very sophisticated gearbox controlling all functions powered by only one PF L-motor. Yes it was. As far as I can remember it was built from (not too many) technic pieces.
  8. There wasn't something like a motor. The blade was rotating freely. I could spin it with my fingers. I can confirm. I think so. The center part of the new valve has the same size as the the old one. The pin holes are on its sides. The movement of the new valve was very smooth. I would say I could use it continuously. But: I only had a couple of minutes with the new valve.
  9. I tried that but it wasn‘t satisfying. The slightly too bug turn radius isn‘t a problem as the use pin with hole is turning too. Ah alright - that one. Don’t think that this motor is very good usable as you need some gearing and a clutch. A servo is much better for the purpose of controlling the valve.
  10. Very good idea. Both version are fine - so you could choose how you connect the swith to rest of the MOC. As I doesn’t know, which solution you mean, domyou have link? If you mean a regular micro motor from TLG, I fully agree with @Beck. It’s too rare and it‘s weak.
  11. My solution is about the same size:
  12. Lego Certified Professional Sets

    Hi there, I just posted a review of the LCP set "Hampton by Hilton Modular Construction" designed by Dirk Denoyelle.
  13. Last May, I got my hands on a very special set: "Hampton by Hilton Modular Construction" set deigned by Lego Certified Professional (LCP) Dirk Denoyelle. Of course I snapped it at the chance. After I got it I struggled with myself for a while whether to keep it and hope to increase in value or build it up. I have decided on the latter and would like to let you participate. The box does not look very spectacular. The print is clean and crisp. But the box itself is much too flabby. It was hard to handle it without damage. But: the content counts. In the box neatly packed in ZIP lock bags are 1553 parts (minus one missing part plus various extra parts). The bigger plates and the construction manual are included loosely. The construction manual is a real highlight: really thick pages and perfect print quality. That makes up for the box. Especially nice in the manual is that the play starts with the construction. In the construction steps, the workers are always somewhere else, join in and also the crane helps. I have never seen it like this before. The building of the set starts rather boring, I say. First you build 24 identical containers. But after that it's fun until shortly before the end. Bricking the outer tiles is then somewhat monotonous again. Personally, I like the finished model much better than expected. I especially like the ground floor, which is completely furnished. The associated construction truck seems a bit out of time, or better, looks like from the 80s. There would have been more possible. The hotel itself is just a monolith and can not compete with the LCP set Hilton Paris Opera (also by Dirk Denoyelle). Both, however, would have to fit well in terms of scale to each other. The little London bus from Lego at least fits the hotel perfectly :) All in all, the Hampton is still a very nice, not everyday model. It is a pity that, contrary to the picture on the packaging, two tiles are not printed with the Hampton logo. I recorded the bulding of the hotel and the review in a video and tried stop motion instead of a speed build. Please tell me how you like it.
  14. Thx @Imanol BB. @Allexander that's right. Some functions are inside, but not as many as in the red one. I tried to make it a little more simple so it can be rebuild by others.
  15. @I_Igor that’s right :) Thx Allexander! I think, I open a new topic as it is a more than 80% new MOC. 6x6 is wrong. Will hurry up to show it here. Yes, it is. Where have you seen it? I brought it (still not fully finished) to Bricking Bavaria Munich.
