  1. IP protection aside, I reckon a few creators here could do quite well on Patreon, rather than a limited time CF platform.
  2. Rm8 acknowledged this and instead proposed a way for people to more easily support the creators at a level they're happy with rather than the fixed price option of an instruction set. IMHO of couse.
  3. I think it's a great idea provided the process is simple (I'm not familiar with CF processes). These are unique models that people put enormous amounts of thought and time into creating and documenting. They inspire a worldwide audience, some of whom can afford to build them, some who just appreciate the design and likely many who would be more than happy to give something back to the makers regardless. I can't justify the cost of collecting the parts for the P1, but would happily drop $10 on a CF platform to give thanks for bringing it to life.
  4. +1. Just rebuilding this now. Fitting six motors, three receivers, lights and the battery box in the body, then having it work so intuitively with the remote design is genius.
  5. There's a tonne of lag in the forward gears before the drivetrain actually starts moving the engine. Up to a metre or so of travel. If it still doesn't engage after this, you may have a problem.
  6. Definitely the mold mark hiding for me. Also struggling with the grey liftarm visible on the back left of the Bugatti when it's black in the right. Arrrghh!!
  7. I mostly build from instructions, including some of the wonderful mod work that people here create and document for all to enjoy. My biggest instruction-free project was making Nathanaƫl Kuipers' 42000 C-model from the pictures which was very educational and took a looong time. With a young family, time constraints and the lack of an organised workspace are big hurdles to getting into moc-ing, but marvelling at the ingenuity of other peoples work is more than enough to keep me coming back for now.
  8. Spent a lazy Saturday today building this and marvelling at its design. As the youngest child of four I've been fortunate to have had a lot of lego around since I was a wee lad in the late 70's. My parents kept all that lego and passed it on to us when we had kids because none of my siblings did. Lots of classic space sets and so much else. That sparked me off and I went from buying new stuff for our bairns to collecting and modifying the big technic sets like 8043, before domestic committments took precedence. Then my partner won this in a toystore promotion last week. Just in time for my birthday. I've followed the reveal and modding threads on here, but even Sariel's videos didn't spoil just how crazy this set is. Can't wait to finish it, pull it apart again and start tinkering. Don't mean to threadcrap with personal bumf. I just want to give my thanks to Eurobricks, the wonderful community and the utterly astounding talent of its members. That rump on the Chiron though... hoo boy.
  9. Here's the spares I had after box 1. Bags 1-3 from L-R.
  10. I'm just at the end of box 1 now. Will check for you tonight. Though I did have to stop because there was an unexpected robber in my set that made off with the yellow liftarm and left their head behind, so my spares count might not be the most reliable.
  11. I have a MISB 9398 for sale for $250 if anyone is interested.
  12. I vaguely recall reading something about Amazon not sending Lego to reshippers anymore. Worth a crack though. Let us know if it works.
  13. Maybe they're just being nice and giving someone a bargain? Not everyone is a hard core reseller.
  14. Wouldn't that result in the axles turning in opposite directions?
  15. Has anyone got any tips for purchasing a 10188 Death Star? Offshore prices are tempting, but shipping and customs charges could make importing it pointless. Is it best to wait for a deal from the local stores? Cheers
