    Being in my shed building with my 3 beautiful Grandchildren. Life gets NO better.

    The challenge of building a decent MOC of my own.

    Should you be having trouble sleeping you'll find reading about my journey into LEGO will almost certainly help. You'll find it in About Me or if viewing on a mobile Activity - About Me.

    Sweet Dreams.

    Darth Vader's SelfDriving WheelChair

    Love it! Love it! Love it! It's such a fun build and for the first time, something I actually feel 'qualified' to comment on The pushing movement of the arms genius and something I've not seen before on the few Technic 'chairs I've seen and the hands placed at the hand rims is a very nice touch. I like the addition of the 'wheelie bar' but with His Darkness wearing a helmet all the time I don't think he'll fully appreciate your attention to detail . If I have one very tiny, itsy bitsy little criticism it would be the push handles could do with being a couple of studs shorter. Trust me, I know about these things .

    MOC - USS Gerald Ford (40,000 peices).

    I don’t know if this is exactly to scale nor to be honest do I care because whatever way you look at it it’s a hugely impressive, very nicely detailed build. I think it’s great.

    [MOC] Winter Chalet.. Help me!

    Loved this then. Love it still. Very happy to support
  4. This is absolutely incredible and as hard as I try I can’t imagine how difficult it must be for you. You are so inspiring and a testament to the power of the human spirit to overcome adversity. I’m sure members here would be really interested in seeing some pictures of your builds or perhaps a video of you building if that’s possible. Your achievements deserve wider attention. Although I can’t help you with writing instructions I wish you all the very best in your endeavours.

    Bentley 4.5l ‘Blower’ model

    Had it not been for the wheels & tyres (I know there are no suitable alternatives at this scale) I really wouldn't have known at first glance that this wasn't a photo of the real thing. Your attention to detail is commendable. Great work.
  6. 8:10 6: 6 2: 4 1: 3 4: 2 3: 1 The very best of luck to you all.
  7. Having watched the video numerous times I can’t get my head around the sheer complexity of what you’ve created. I’m therefore left to conclude that it’s either the work of a genius or witchcraft
  8. Being involved in the Huayra Project from start to finish has given me a whole new insight into the MOC building process. I always thought a great MOC took a lot of time and effort but after seeing the amount of hours and the effort Jeroen spent on the Huayra I now realise I realIy didn't have a clue what was involved. Looking at your Regera, the time you’ve spent on it, the years you’ve spent on it, really show. It’s simply magnificent.
  9. My advice. Don't do it. Bide your time and go for a BuWizz when you have the money. The BuWizz is a high qualty device that'll give years of service. In the highly unlikely case it did develop a problem at least you know it'll be repaired/refurbished quickly and by a company that prides itself on its excellent customer service.
  10. My thoughts are with Ingmar’s Family and Friends. May he rest in peace.

    42099 - 4x4 X-treme Off-Roader

    Jim, please can you see to it that whoever did this is banned from going near LEGO for life or, if you can swing it, for longer.
  12. Oh dear. Looks like my trusty Note 3 & S3 won’t make the grade so I guess my iPad 5 is going to have to do... until of course that too is deemed incompatible

    Lizzie (Cars)

    What a great build. It’s instantly recognisable and full of detail. I’m liking the stickers, they give it real character. Looking forward to seeing the video.
  14. Igor’s back! I wondered where you’ve been. Hope the hand has healed OK. Good to see you working on this again, it looks to be coming along nicely. I look forward to seeing more progress soon.

    Technic 2020 Set Discussion

    I don’t know about the Regal but I’d be stoked if it were to be the car it donated bits of its running gear to, the Bond Bug. I had a 750ES for a year or so and it was a terrific little thing. A LEGO Technic Bond Bug? Now that really would be something different
