    I can tell it is build by Desert Eagle only by looking at it. It's your signature style: dozen of motors, bald colors, and very recognizable styling. Performance is amazing. Good job!
  2. Very cool build! Looking at something that compact and cleverly implemented gives me joy! It's been proven many times that you don't need to go to 1:8 to have something awesome. Kudos for building small!
  3. So many wonderful thoughts and opinions here. I am definitely a perfectionist. And as @DrJB rightfully said it can very bad for work and life. I am constantly fighting it and, of course, it is very hard for to let things go at work and at home. So when it comes to hobby, it's a happy place for me. Lego is the only place where I can satisfy my perfectionism. And I go all the way. That's why you haven't seen a MOC from me for 5 years. My big one was finished 2 years ago, but I am not publishing it since still find some things to tweak. It never stops to amaze me what optimization can accomplish. I refine a mechanism until it all clicks together. And that feeling when everything finally fits together just perfectly is very specific and I know it very well. In most cases it will be very clear to me that I have achieved at least a local optimum. It's kind of hard to explain. But I am sure some of you will understand. And that moment is pure joy.
  4. That is a fantastic model! Congrats. I kinda love the exposed studs. They give the model some character.
  5. Looks cool. I am, of course, interested in the technical details, but I have a feeling it is just a teaser for something epic. That picture in the credits looks super intriguing. Should we expect more details in the future? Extra points for the title!
  6. @gyenesvi @Samolot Thank you, guys!
  7. Very cool model. The description of all the difficulties you've faced makes it even cooler. I really dig the color scheme with wheel caps in three different shades. Somehow it works really well. And the presentation is top notch. One question: how do you drive the geared hubs in such a limited space? Is there enough space for the mating cv-hoint part, a gear, and support? A picture will be much appreciated.
  8. Oh, this is brilliant. The suspension looks super responsive and the packaging is amazing. And the windscreen and pillars in Technic and at that scale - wow! The chassis photo resonates with me a lot - this is exactly the scale and level of density I like the most. Amazing work. Any chance for a under belly shot? I am super interested in the suspension, especially since it is updated from the previous version and seems to work really well.

    Ah, the manual goes in the front, I've missed it in the second picture. This is cool. Thanks for the replies guys.

    I see you are wasting no time with your 2021 list. A very solid start! Personally I think the steering solution is not much worse than "u-joints and crap" (), super compact and efficient. A guess it is a bit less realistic, but so is the transmission in the back. I assume "system" or modularity takes the priority here. A bit off topic: I always feel that placing the gearbox away from the fake engine is wrong. To the point where it almost feels like it is not worth it. What is your opinion on that (obviously you are okay with it, but still)? To what scale you need to go to do it in a more realistic way? Does anyone remember any examples out of their head? Again, sorry for off-topic, let me know if this is a wrong place do discuss it. Just the whole theme of modularity got me thinking.
  12. This is genuinely great. And thanks for the detailed write up. So many great solutions! Very clever idea of running driveshafts from the tracks back to the fake engine. The picture with the whole thing hanging in the air on a 3frame which is 3M high is impressive! And then there is the steering, working steering wheel, suspension. And all of that in two weeks??! It takes me that long to mount a door on my creations... P.S. The video and photos are absolutely beautiful!
  13. Very nice truck. The solution for a differential is brilliant. The photo from behind the cab really shows how dense it is. Good job!

    Very nice build! As others have said, refreshing and fun. The use of pistons is inspired and fits the style of the build perfectly. Thanks for sharing!
