  1. Wow, impressive! Mechanical engineering at its best!
  2. I always end up rebuilding any moc several times from scratch, just to make it cleaner and implement all kinds of improvements. That's why I switched to digital building, much easier to change stuff and in the end only one rebuild is needed. But nothing beats building it with bricks, for the exact reason you encountered...
  3. I found myself that adding a friction pin through the center holes of the crossblocks helps a lot (but in this case won't really help on the turntable itself....) Do you need the vertical pinholes for your build? Otherwise just replace them with beams and frictionpins. Or put just 1 crossblock with blue 3long frictionpin in the middle, in the three holes of the turntable?
  4. Very good model. I especially like the little pallet lifter 'shooting' the cargo into the truck .
  5. You could also have a look at this topic, it has a lot of gearbox examples which might give you some inspiration:

    Insane... just incredible, the sheer size (height) is mind blowing, and it operates so smooth. Would be already fantastic as regular scale model, but to do this in Lego... hats off!

    A quick comment on spam

    Got the additional question and answered it. Not a big issue and if it helps against those spam messages I would even fill out a list of 10. Good luck admins with your efforts in cleaning the forum. Whatever you come up with, I'm with you guys!
  8. Well, I for one wasn't able to finish my ride in time. Might finish it at some point nontheless, but not as TC14 entry... Anyway, I'm curious to see all entries, gonna check it out later today. Indeed a cool contest!
  9. What technique is that for the body panelling...? Very cool shaping, and the use of actuators to actually create the curves and put the tension on the bodywork. Brilliant engineering! And that drill is indeed genius
  10. @Aventador2004You forgot 1... Dunno if I can finish it in time, but I haven't withdrawn yet
  11. I happen to see one driving by IRL yesterday (around the same time you posted this, coincidence...?) and I must say your rendition looks spot on to me. Very beautiful build. I was thinking of moving to smaller scale in the future (I'm currently working in 1:10 mainly), but seeing this in 1:8 makes me doubt again...

    Hmm, what happened to the red slicing blade from the prelims... If they wanted to reduce 'technicolor', I'm sure they could've picked some other red elements to recolor... The blade looked cool in red... And that 'hanging' large green panel in the rear looks somewhat weird. On the other side a green beam was used to fill the gap to the white beam and upper panel. I can see the bb-switch sits there, but a 5l or 7l beam green wouldn't be in the way right? Not to start all negativity again, just noticed these 'oddities'... EDIT: that valve really looks interesting, might pick the set up for just those...
  13. In theory adding a longer (or second) rope with extra pulley works to increase lifting height. Not sure how well it fits in real model though. Anyone care to try?
  14. Maybe I missed, but what about the lifting height? And would my MOD to increase lifting heigh by making a longer (double) rope solution actually work? (Or should I just sit back and wait for the reviews to be published on August 1st? Thats also fine with me)
