  1. For the plane it is most likely to see the floating tanks from 42105 Catamaran again, making it a water plane that really floats without electronic of course.
  2. You can see pictures from "real" on my page clicking here The flags for indicating axle and liftarm lengths are manually added images in the instructions. It is still a missing feature in Stud.io
  3. Hi community, I am happy to show my latest build to complete the 2020 lineup - another Lamborghini which seems to be the alternate model of 42115 with the highest parts count used so far. Following this link to the instructions on RB. By clicking here you reach more of my content and models. This is the Lamborghini Miura Concept from 2006, completely build from set 42115. What you need to build this model? Only a copy of set 42115 Lamborghini Sian from 2020. All 3434 required parts comes from set 42115, using 93% of them. The model uses one spare part, which is also included in the Sian's inventory. Other parts are not required to build this Lamborghini Miura Concept alternate model out of the Sian. Summary of Functions & Feautures double wishbone suspension in front and back manual steering with working steering wheel openable doors with auto-locking system openable hood and rear section detachable engine cover 4-speed transmission gearbox with reverse gear 4x4 drivetrain with 2 differentials Lamborghini V12-engine with moving pistons open window in bottom to view gearbox detailed interior includes golf bag with 3 rackets (under hood) modular building detailed design with printed parts fits all Supercas in approx 1:8 scale measures (all parts closed) 53cm x 28cm x 13cm Impressions Suspension The suspension in front and back is made double wishbone, with a suspension in front very similar to Sian. The rear suspension is made different with horizontally mounted shock absorbers, because the engine is placed over the suspension. Travel, hardness and space between wheels and fenders are just great. Engine Miura Concepts detailed V12-engine with moving pistons is connected through the gearbox directly to the 4x4 drivetrain. The engine can be watched working by detaching the engine cover easily or by tilting the rear section, to reveal the engine bay. Gearbox The gearbox is a typically H-shifter in the middle console of the car. I experimented many hours with the gearbox and changed it from 6 speeds to 4 speeds due much friction in the drivetrain, but with a cool and realistic working reverse gear instead. Shifting gears is clearly noticeable in the drivetrain and can be seen by different speeds of the moving pistons of the engine. To make all the shifters working, I developed a gearbox for this model never seen before. For a full wheel spin, the engine fires 1.87 times in the first gear and 0.373 times in the fourth gear, which is only 37% of a wheel spin. Like in a real car, the reverse gear fits between the first and second gear in ratio. Following is a summary of the gear ratios, measured from wheel (input) to engine shaft (output): 1. Gear -> 1:1.87 2. Gear -> 1:1.12 3. Gear -> 1:0.625 4. Gear -> 1:0.373 Reverse -> 1:1.34R Doors Like real car design, I started developing this model by the doors and implemented a cool self-locking door mechanism. Each door stays in position when closed and can only be opened by triggering the doorhandle. When closing a door, it locks automatically. Golf bag Overnight bags are out (and maybe thats the reason why 42143 Ferrari doesn't have it anymore). Take a ride to the next golf club with this model. It includes a golf bag with 3 different rackets that all fits under the hood. Prints Luckily the 42115 Lamborghini Sian uses prints, so there is no need for custom sticker or custom prints. Using the Lamborghini prints gives this model the final touch. The real car promo Following are some promo images of the real car prototype alternately with model images: About the Miura Concept (2006) The House of the Raging Bull has unveiled the Miura Concept 2006, that celebrates the 40th anniversary of the legendary GT. The idea was to create a new concept with a retro-inspired look heralding back to one of the auto world’s most famous icons - the legendary Lamborghini Miura. This new edition features a clean style with smooth surfaces and straight cuts that define the opening body panels. The new Miura prototype from 2006 can be considered a faithful re-interpretation of the original one, even in details like the grey-lime appearance and the air-intakes who makes this concept car instantly recognizable as a Miura. A modern styling cue is represented by the rear headlights, whose design is very close to that of the latest Lamborghini models. In 2006 the new concept model was strictly a prototype with no firm date set for production launch and is still prototype in 2022. It exists a real manufactured car in the Lamborghini Museum in Italy, but having this model on shelf or desk is a much higher chance than seeing it in reality. The instructions of 42115 Sian shows a Miura at the beginning - maybe a secret hint to this model? ... Instructions The premium instructions for this model comes in 5 PDF files with a total of 766 pages of high quality images and building steps. For the first time, I splitted the instructions to multiple files due the large size and complexity of the model and made the most challenging and largest instructions released so far, to ensure a satisfying and long building experience with this model. Following are 5 example pages to show the quality of instructions: Final words Thanks to Pawel Turalski (C3technic) for his pre-release support. This model is my masterpiece in art, design and functionality. It took me countless hours to make. Have fun with it.
  4. Does anybody know what happened to the number 42142 this year? It is still missing.
  5. Yeah the tires are very welcome for that and the model is bigger than expected with just a few parts left over - the common engine parts, a few panels and system pieces

  9. I used the smaller older one, it is a bit cheating but does not matter
  10. Looks like we are finally getting half pin with knob with friction. Color-coded in red. They must be with friction, otherwise the "teeths" would rotate.

  12. He said in interview that he has no model for 2021 but for 2022. Since 42127 is delayed to 2022, this makes most sense.
  13. Exactly. Because TLG is dumb enough to kill their own B-models, RB is a big winning platform for TLG. People buying a second or third kit only to build an alternate model, so TLG should never fuc* people building alternates as long the design goes not to a third-party seller.
  14. The 42129 Trailcat is ready for publishing next week. Thanks everyone for the genius idea with the tyres!
