    Technic 2020 Set Discussion

    Given the huge size of PU elements I don't think so, take a look at @M_longer wheeled loader WIP topic, how he struggle to put ONE hub and 4 motors into body that offer more space than backhoe. And PU motors are way to large to integrate into rear arm. Not mentioning price of such solution...
  2. And vice versa, TLG should be more cautious before jumping and take things more calmly, explaining, asking...
  3. The problem here is that TLG is behaving in matters like this like elephant in porcelain. The same was cause with one of the german reviewer who got sued for selling mug with brick picture. I'm sure all designers would rename all their 3D models when a polite letter would be delivered first, EXPLAINING and asking for removal of "LEGO" words, giving everyone enough time, then followed by 2nd letter and only THEN asking for takedown. But unfortunately, this is not how corporates works
  4. LDCad for stepped 3D model and then LPub. While LPub is sometimes very painful to use the amount of customization of final look is why I still use it. I find it quite joyful to make instructions and I can do so quite quickly
  5. The instructions are finally alive: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-29716/Ivan_M/truck-with-concrete-pump/#comments It is whooping 570 pages, the build is split into 5 sections with central gearbox and outriggers, rear module, front module, cabin and arm. It consist of 4120 parts, something I did'n expect, I thought it would be closer to 3000.
  6. Wow what a waste of internal space, it is half empty when the motors should be inside superstructure and not in arm. Nice review, thanks

    Of course they are aware that the ratio could be achieved by much less gears but the goal here was to put motor in center. Then you have wheel X stud apart and have to get there without using perpendicular gear connection. IMO this would be perfect set to introduce helical gears

    42108 Mobile crane with almost 1300 parts - might be very similar to 8053: https://brickset.com/sets/8053-1/Mobile-Crane I suspect 49,5mm wheels, also 4 axles and 2 section boom. It might be bright light orange. Hopefully if will use xl accurator

    42110 - Land Rover Defender

    By the way where is that 7x11 black frame used? I tried to watch the speed build and pictures as closely as possible but no luck. The thing I dislike most is the 3:1 ratio to slow down the fake engine. It should be reversed, both for authenticity and the feel from it.

    42110 - Land Rover Defender

    It is really interesting that it uses very low amount of (long) beams - 9 pieces of 15L in grey/black + 10 pieces in olive (42069 for comparsion 32/0 purple), 7+10 pieces of 13L (14+0), 9 + 6 pieces of 11L (20+3), 11 pieces of 5x3 L shaped (24 pieces) yet is uses huge number of connectors like black #2 (40 pieces), 32184 in DBG (52! pieces). There is also plenty of gears - 65 + 3 diffs (Porsche 52+1, 42069: 30+2) 51 panels is also quite low, considering that 14 pieces are smallest (21+22) and overal size of the model. 42069 has 41 panels , 42077: 48 pieces, 42096: 46 pieces Lastly there are 647 pins + whooping 73 half pins, 42069: 653 + 32, funny how close it is, the amount of half pins is no surprise given the finish from system parts

    42110 - Land Rover Defender

    It appeared in 75119 (SW buildable figure) in 2016 and it was available at B&P for a short time, I have grabbed like 30 of them at that time, but is is nice to see it again
  13. Then you are slightly screwed, the password it not known, it is BL's "know-how". I wouldn't bother with this replacement, it is not big deal. There is a workaround if you really insist - replace the .dat files in your ldraw folder, generate instructions or parts list, then return it: 1) Open your ldraw Studio folder (program files\studio 2.0\ldraw\parts) 2) Locate 4459.dat and rename it to 4459.dat.backup 3) locate 2780.dat and rename it to 4459.dat 4) Generate instructions/parts list etc. 5) Rename both files back to original

    Someone already mentiond it: I have revers-engeneered it back then and it is superb, it is missing extending outriggers but they can lift it from ground and they matter.Its lifting capability is also impressive. It is very easy and QUICK to setup, that sloweness is killing 42097

    I think that TLG picked a wrong scale for the spider crane again, trying to impress with size to the point it is suffering from it. I also agree that the car transporter should have been done without trailer but longer. Thank you for your reviews
