  1. @ifilin great, hope you guys have fun building it! If it is not too much trouble, please share some pictures on Rebrickable once done.
  2. The final instructions and parts list are now available on Rebrickable: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-36127/Rudivdk/lockheed-martin-p38-white-lightnin/ This time I choose to charge a small amount (€7,-) for instructions, to cover for all the time not spent on my wife and kids while making them...
  3. I solved that by having my own Lego in a separate 'dad's room' on the attic of the house. They know that they can look, not take. And buying them their own Lego sets also helps deflecting their attention from mine... I have a wall full of little wooden drawers (IKEA Moppe, 32 6drawer units) to sort all my ~120k parts. But my desk is always still full of bits and pieces, and fully covered with (discarded) pieces and assemblies when I am full-steam MOCcing. WIP and finished MOCs are kept on a few shelves above my desk. I usually sort all loose pieces and disassembled MOCs into a single tray every few days, and when the tray is full, it is time to sort into the drawer system, which can be in a few days also, or after weeks. Rare or ultra-usefull parts I keep out of the generic sorting tray, and keep them either on my desk or put them straight into the storage drawers so I can find them. So all-in-all an untidy builder with a tidy storage.

    Steph77's Moc corner

    If you would add a 3rd catch below catch2 (into the 'back' of the RWD 16T gearbox gear) and make catch 2&3 move simultaneously, I think that will solve it.

    Maybe I do not see it correctly, but when you engage 4wd-mode, you will lose the drive from/to the V6 engine/gearbox...?! Because on RotaryCatch1 nothing is engaged...

    [TC17] Halftracker

    You could add some manual weaponry around the truck, heaving shooters operatief with RC is a bit far-fetched anyways... Good looking build, looks smooth but with the right edginess here and there

    Lego Hydrolics

    There was another post about this stuff some time ago, with a link to an extensive video-review from JangBricks YT-channel. Might be useful for you:

    platform lift trucks, any model (truck, plane, helicopter, boat etc.) with large/heavy opening hatches or ramps (car transporter anyone? missed opportunity there...)

    42108 - Mobile Crane

    You could try the 3x7 curved panel at the bottom and put some connectors to the side to mount the lightbar/bumper and 'fill it up' to 11-wide. Dunno if it would fit with the underside of the model though. BTW, good to see you back, hope you're doing well .

    Future Set Wishes and Speculation

    Well, since the cylinder engine parts in LEGO did not include any reference to/resemblance of the spark/combustion part of a combustion engine, I fear that an electric motor will be nothing more than some brick built unit (similar to 42056 exhaust mufflers)without any moving or lighting parts at all... Hmmm... thinking of this: electric motor = no gearbox needed... so than only suspension is left as car 'function' for future electric cars in Technic... and what part of the UCS cars is the biggest source for complaints...: yes, suspension.... Let's hope TLG sticks to combustion engine models for a good while...

    Future Set Wishes and Speculation

    The return of Fiber Optics... Don't see it happening, although something like this would definitely enhance the play value. Maybe they can do a blue version of the light brick (this or this) and hook the trigger up to the rotation of the wheels so it blinks at an interval relative to the wheels rotation speed? Barcode Multi-Set had a similar feature in the garbage truck where it would play an engine sound at three increasing speed rates relative to the vehicle speed...

    [APP] BrickController2

    @imurvai Hi István, today I finally got me a USB OTG cable so I hooked up my PS3 Dualshock controller to my phone (I do not want to root my employers phone, so I went for a wired setup). All works fine except for 1 button (= PS3 controller issue, not an app issue), but when I disconnect the controller from cable/phone before closing the app, the app crashes (instead of giving a notification 'controller connection lost' or something like that). It is not a big issue and no harm is done anywhere, but I just thought I'd let you know. BC app version is 2.6 Phone is Samsung S7 (G930-F) Android version 8.0.0 If you need more info, let me know. I can reproduce the issue.

    42115 Lamborghini

    Please have TLG create this with existing panels as much as possible. I'd rather see some extravagant assemblies trying to come close to the real thing like in the Chiron front end, than getting me a model kit with exactly copied shapes with otherwise useless parts. See also my signature text...

    Future Set Wishes and Speculation

    Technically it would not add that much, just a big cylinder (=rotor) rotating inside a tube (=stator). Not as fancy as crankshaft with moving pistons. But it would free up space inside models for other technical stuff when there is no engine block in the way. And it would set a precedence for LEGO buyers/builders: the future is here, not just as an expensive car for business lease drivers, but also in your own little toys!

    +1 To be honest, I'm a bit surprised we haven't seen it yet...
