  1. I'm from Canada, and I'm interested in vintage Lego (the stuff I wanted as a child – mostly post-classic Space), mods to classic sets, Technic cars, Star Wars, and all kinds of MOCs. My favourite set is the 8880 Supercar. I've become an AFOL in the past few years, buying some used sets and building with my kids. My main project has been modifying Jerac's TIE Fighter. I hope to share that with you soon!
  2. I'm very late to this party, but I finally purchased and built the Bugatti, after waiting to see if I'd prefer its successor. Aside from the lack of stickers (and a couple mechanical improvements which this thread addresses) the only thing I envy about the Lamborghini is the transmission being visible from below. It seems like a shame to build such a complex mechanism and then have it almost invisible in the final product. It should be quite feasible to build the bottom frame with a Sian-style window. I'll take a crack at it as some point, but thought I'd ask if anyone more talented was interested. Anyway @jb70, that would be my suggestion for 1.6, if there ever is one. But I imagine a lot of folks in this thread have moved on to the new hotness.

    Ya, I’ve noticed there isn’t space on the standard TIE for this style of mount. I’ll let you know if I figure out a better solution ?

    Jerac, I'm curious why you built the guns/window attachment/controls differently for Vader's tie than your regular tie fighter. They're basically identical in the movies, right? I've built your standard TF, and I wasn't satisfied with the solidness of the front bits, or the T-pieces sticking out next to the guns. I was thinking of trying to copy the lower front from your Vader tie. Is this a new and improved version, in your mind?
  5. I purchased an 8880 a couple years ago and tinker with it every now and then. I hope to incorporate the mods above, but am most interested in adding a working hood and doors (without using newer pieces, and preserving the original look as much as possible). I'd love to see a more experienced builder's take on these mods. Not to take anything away from the original set, or Kumbbl's excellent mods, but I'd say a model car can hardly be called "full featured" if it doesn't have working doors! Cheers
