  1. @Sariel can you spot the new sprocket wheels applied to these wheels https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=15038c03#T=C (but with black rims). I'm thinking to improve the look of the 42030 wheels. Thank you!
  2. Yes, I did not understand where the photos of the real things ended, and where the photos of the Lego version began. Great job!

    [MOC] Skyfall: Catching the Train

    Great job! Looking at the excavator I see that the first images "in motion" have been mirrored. Also in the movie are they mirrored? What to you mean with "The motion blur effect in the photos was achieved using practical effects" ? Again, many compliments!
  4. Very nice model,compact and clean design. Can you make a photo together with your previous model?
  5. I love this huge model! I like the pneumatic functions controlled by a remote control. What I don’t like is that it is very difficult to move the machine due to the tubes going to the remote, so I would have not motorized the transmission/steering. Another thing I think it is not 100% conform to the original is the shape of the front arm, and the attachment of the bucket in the wrong pivot. The most original feature of the model is the rotating seat. Summary: very very good job!
  6. I missed the finished model, I like it very much. Many compliments
  7. The solution is water spray ;-) Come on, it is just a contest, fantasy can go further than reality.
  8. Hello! I show here my entry to the latest Lego Ideas contest: the Volvo Excavadrone. This project born in my mind in the middle of the contest: at the beginning I was thinking about a modular construction machine, but it was not something “special”. Then I started thinking out of the box, and a flying machine was born! All functions are manual: Arm and bucket movement, with 3 Las Turret rotation Solar panel movement Flipping wheels/propellers Detachable operator cab Independent suspensions The model was a runner up winner of the contest, so I’m really proud of it. I hope you like it too.

    When the 2h list is revealed usually? During the toy fair?

    Technic 2019 Set Discussion

    Question about the track loader: why did they use black panels with yellow stickers, instead of yellow panels? I know those yellow panels are very rare and expensive…… I also noticed a strange/new use of the small rollers inside the tracks.
  11. I like it very much, especially with the original tracked wheels. It looks futuristic!

    You are talking about 2 different parts. The new panels in DBG are the ones on the bonnet.

    42078 - Mack Anthem

    Beautiful! What scale is the Mack, more or less? 1:20 / 1.21?
  14. Great! I like especially the shape of the bonnet and the front

    [WIP] Volvo EC160e

    1:17 is also my scale, I think it is ok for medium sized machines like the EC 160 E . Linear Actuator extension is good in my opinion at this scale, and you can always work on connection point to increase the range of movement of the arms. Concerning the progress so far, my suggestion is to check gear reduction of the tracks, and also tracks tension (they look a little "soft") Keep us updated!
