  1. Nice to see the return of the 2L beam in lime, and the 5L thin lift arm in red makes it's appearance in technic line. A nice little set!
  2. The red gear is only 0.5 studs wide in the middle though, right? So it still takes 1L of axle (0.5 for red gear, 0.5 for bevel gear), so no problem with alignment to rims etc?

    Looks like 5 bevel gears along with the red gear which seems to mesh differently to the usual clutch gears. Possible a clutch gear could mesh to the other side of the LBG case?
  4. I'd start real simple. You've got space by the looks to make sure that bracket piece is secured properly. Two blue cross-axle pins 2L in it into a lift arm secured on either side.

    42108 - Mobile Crane

    Seems the front stabilisers are just manually pulled down with the red ball joint pieces. I guess that's something to mod! Nice to see the yellow panels back - building 8043 in yellow will be possible without costing the earth!

    42094 model C - High Speed Dozer

    This is awesome. It's a really sleak looking design as well as having the necessary features. Great work!
  7. Absolutely beautiful pictures as per usual Jim. Thanks! I agree the rear closing mechanism seems too complex - I think Milan wanted it to auto-lock on push which it does with the loose band, but it does seem it could be simplified. My only other complaint about this set are the universal joints in the drive train - but I haven't yet seen a way to do it without that as yet (though I expect something like that will be improved at some point!)

    42100 Liebherr R9800 Excavator

    FYI: On sale at Toyco.co.nz in NZ for $799. Interestingly, not listed under the Limited Edition section, so likely will be 20% off within a week or two, as per their usual sales, and possibly 25% off in run up to Christmas. They don't yet have 42110 listed.
  9. This is really nicely done. Beautiful panel work! Does the blue gear rub against the wheel at all (it seems only held in place by the wheel?)

    42110 - Land Rover Defender

    The slope piece isn't holding the door shut - the black piece behind it is doing that. The slope piece is just to make it easier to close.

    42110 - Land Rover Defender

    My bet is it's one of these (first in 42078 I think?) It's in the pinhole of a 7L black thin liftarm. https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=24201

    42110 - Land Rover Defender

    Milan has done an awesome job on this one! I wonder if it has Ackermann? A few shots in the video suggest it, but can't see the mechanism. Super happy to be getting the wave selector, blue clutch and yellow extender in this set, plus D/N/R, 4 speeds and hi/lo - excellent!

    42110 - Land Rover Defender

    I like the use of those new 3x3 crossblock pieces for the engine.

    42110 - Land Rover Defender

    Given gearing seems to be done inside, it could be the steering is inside only too, and the winch is the HOG on top? Still, seems a HOG could probably be added pretty easily. Am looking forward to this one!

    Building a better lift

    By the looks your lift won't align with your diamond pattern as you have it? Why not instead have the lift be a 4x4 plate (or larger if needed) aligned normally? The 1x1 cylinders would then be in each corner and in the middle, and it'd pop up a cross-shaped platform on the 45. That way everything is on grid so nice and easy to do.
