    Classic Porsche 911

    So beautiful! As I said before, I really enjoy that classic feel it has. The view from the back is so pretty. I love every single piece there.Thanks for the update.
  2. I can watch that video with you compressing the suspension forever. It "feels" so soft and responsive. And the outdoor performance is incredible! That thing is one of a few examples where the current Lego motors provide a real playable off-road experience, not just crawling. Fantastic job.
  3. Hi Didumos69! I'm following the thread closely, just haven't commented yet. It's a beautiful structure you have there. If I was shown it without knowing who has built it, I would immediately recognize your style. No pinhole wasted. Can't wait to see it drive.

  5. Beautiful build! You've nailed the rear lights, and the stripes on the sides are impressive. I especially enjoyed the write-up, big thanks for that. It would be nice to see more such descriptions of the building process here. It really helps to appreciate the model deeper.

    Aesthetics and Technics

    My thoughts on this are the same with @Sariel. The looks versus functions is a always a compromise and a decision to make during the building and thus it is a totally personal choice. I don't support the subforums either. In addition, creation of WIP topics versus MOC topics is also should be a personal choice. It just depends on the kind of person you are. Some just don't like to show the unfinished work. The bottom line is, you can't force people to create better MOCs or better topics in the forum by force. I honestly don't see that introduction of some sort of strict rules for posting the MOCs will improve the overall quality of the builds and presentation. It can filter out certain type of posts, for sure. But this is what happened in Scale Modelling. Basically now only top notch models are allowed there, and look what happened, the forum is dead. It is still a nice place to visit once a month, but I don't want that to happen to the entire Technic corner of Eurobricks. Come on, it is the most welcoming place on the whole Internet after all. Let's keep it this way. As @DrJB said, it is really simple to filter the topics you like by yourself .You need 300 ms to understand, if the thread worth reading or not.

    [MOC] AC Cobra 427 V2

    This is incredible. It is totally the kind of built I appreciate the most. No compromises in the appearance, but full set of features on the inside. Congratulations on the great job. That should have been quite a challenge. Would you mind sharing, what was the most tricky thing to pull out? Also, I would appreciate if you can share some details of the steering assembly. Thanks!

    Classic Porsche 911

    Dear @legophisto, thank you for the pictures. I love the "umbrella" roof. This is ingenious! And the way the trunk lid is connected reminds me of the 10252 Beetle. It is the DNA, I believe .

    Classic Porsche 911

    Hi, this is a real thing of beauty! It captures the charm of the original quite effectively. It is a pity that forum is a little quiet, the model deserves much more than two comments. I would suggest sharing a little more pictures here, so people don't need to jump to the Flickr right away. Would you mind showing some details of the internal construction? I am especially interested in that beautiful curve above the rear fenders. These Technic connectors in the trunk look intriguing. As for the suggestions, to me front and back indicator lights seem a bit tall. But I have no idea how to achieve the curve using plates. Too bad TLG doesn't make quarter tiles in transparent orange.
  10. I agree with others. It is sad to see that the team is investing in the new hardware version, instead of making the existing brick work properly. I've bought buwizz even if the app wasn't perfect with the intent to support the developers, and with hope they will polish the software later if they sell enough bricks. But now, I feel a little betrayed since instead of making the app work, they want me to buy a new brick. Dear @Ron1, if you care about the support from the community for your future projects, please try to improve the existing software. Come on, how you guys can call the buwizz v1.0 finished and move on to v2.0, when there is even no way to control the lights??? Do I need to buy the SBrick just for the LEDs??? Please, show some respect for the people who backed you up. Probably, I sound a little harsh, but don't get me wrong. I love the buwizz and want to support it. I just wish the team was listening to the community more carefully.
  11. Hi! This is neat. I really like it. I can't call it simple, but somehow it looks just right for the scale.The suspension setup is original and works really well. May I ask you about the gear ratio from the motor to the tracks? I am really surprised the thing drives so well with a medium motor for propulsion. Congrats on a great job!

    42078 - Mack Anthem

    I can buy the set for the b-model alone. Finally, a proper Technic garbage truck from TLG. Both models are exceptionally well executed. And the color scheme is fantastic. Have you noticed the tiny working piston engine under the hood? UPDATE: Sorry, it is already discussed in the "2018 Set Technic Discussion and Speculation"
  13. I will double that. Every creation from you is so neat. And the performance is always incredible. As per this particular MOC, I can see why It had taken three years. The chassis is unbelievably compact and clean. It's amazing, that something so compact can behave that well off-road. And the video presentation is perfect as always. Real joy to watch. Thank you for sharing. This is a great inspiration.
