  1. 42065 was a huge seller apparently, so I don't doubt that this will also sell like hotcakes. Not sure I'll get it unless on special, but I may well build it with parts once those sprockets become available :)
  2. Excellent reviews Jim. Those photos are something else. I always look forward to reading them - an especially appreciate the positive outlook :) I love the little details being added nowadays such as the fire extinguishers etc. Looks like a super fun model.

    [TC15] Skycrane helicopter

    Might the older turntable with the gear ring on the interior help with the drive? Pity it doesn't fit a bevel gear inside. Looking really great though!

    [REVIEW] 42064 Ocean Explorer

    Picked this up second hand in excellent condition for US$50. I really like it. It has all the features I'd expect to be honest, and they're nicely routed to the top of the cabin. The small chopper and submersible are great little builds as well (chopper with both main and back blades connected, sub with 2 functions as well). I enjoyed the build and it's got a nice load of dark blue, DBG and red panels. Recommended pickup if you can get it for a good price.

    This one I guess? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FNAoe6c-r7Q

    42093 Corvette ZR-1

    That's what I'm thinking too. Reasonable price, it's got a bunch of nice orange bits (e.g. 6 #3 connectors, wheel arches, large panels, 3x11 curved with 10 holes), has some of the black 3x13 curved panels, a 20Z clutch, the thin profile tyres. Plus a nice B model to boot. I can see a bunch of C-models coming out of it as well.

    That axle is the engine. The black 12T for the steering (lower axle) uses a blue 20T clutch on the engine axle to pass through via another 12T above the 20T clutch to where the hog is (8T at back). The engine axle passes over the differential then goes via a 12T to the tan 20T then onto the diff. i.e. it's definitely a 20T clutch gear, and blue seems to fit given it's in shadow.

    I reckon the angle doesn't help here. I think there's been some clear thought to the styling - e.g. how the rear and door is angled slightly upwards to recreate the lines. I reckon it'll look better in the brick. (It looked better in the brochure, right?) I guess the HOG is on the back (not ideal). Hmm, rear suspension? See the yellow just behind the black 9L beam that forms the top of the seats...

    Love the new wheel arches. Will be handy to have those for smaller scale models. Looks like 11954 Curved 11 x 3 with 10 Pin Holes in Orange as well. Good to see suspension on the tracked loader too. 42088 looks like a repeat of 42031

    All the parts are available in dark azure for it, and it seems the right shade given the blue seats in the other vehicles. The white 1x1 beams are also in 42091. Some nice part sets for panels otherwise introduced in large sets (42069, 70, 82). Looking forward to seeing the larger sets!

    A smaller version of 8068. Looks great. I like the quite different B-model as well - better than just another heli.

    Ah - ofcourse! Thanks for the explanation! :)

    Very cool. For those without the new 20T clutch gear, I guess the LBG 20T bevel with pinhole would also do the trick here?

    Wow! The way the drill moves is fantastic. Great work!

    Was based on photo on the previous page of this thread. But yeah, rest of the photos show it's clearly LBG after all.
