    MOC: Dash's Birthday Bash

    Great little scene, certainly a lot going on here. Very well done, my favorite is the tunnel boring machine coming up through the street, have always loved those things. The only thing I think could be better is the raccoon, I really didn't recognize it as such until I read about it. Really such a minor thing though, great build regardless.

    [MOC] MK V* Tank

    I do think this is a cool project, but the whole thing just looks like it is about to fall apart, it looks like the bricks aren't clicked together all the way or something weird is going on are they not aligned correctly? Are they 100% LEGO? Something just isn't right.

    Project .Ux - Computerised Hamster Cage

    Bet the little buggers will love it, loads of fun for them. The only problem I can see is it might be a bear to clean. Anyway looks good and they have plenty of sticks and cardboard to chew up. The electronics are over the top and was probably not so easy to integrate so the rodents won't chew through.
  4. Damn you talked me into building it now, not sure why I haven't already. This was my second Technic set and I just really didn't think the B model was worth the effort. Thanks for the motivation.

    EV3 - Big Toy quadruped robot

    I think that it is pretty cool and it has been keep very simple as well, would love to see more. Sorry to hear it's your last one, I could imagine they would improve with each successive implementation.
  6. Good to know, thanks, of course it only makes sense to have one. I did not know that. Absolutely would be the correct way of a dual pump setup. Glad to see I'm not the only one to do it like that, just wasn't sure about the check valve thing. Again thanks.
  7. That was my thinking as well, that is why I asked if it worked okay. Seems like you need some kind of check valve or something or maybe one pump going to one set of LAs and the other pump going to another system. Guess I should do some experiments. I do like the idea of multiple pumps though, it just seems like one is so slow.
  8. I like the dual pump setup, do they both pump air at the same time or are they 180 degrees apart? Also wondering do you just use a reverse T, two pumps into one line or is there more to it than that? I also like very much the trailer, good job, I may try and recreate some of your mods.
  9. I would buy sets heavy on grey that are relatively inexpensive with a good variety of pieces, like the Oni Titan and some of the Star Wars sets. There are plenty out there if you look, I know because that's what I do, then I would hit up the PAB wall and finally Brinklink the ones you need. I really do think sets are the most economical way though but obviously your not going to find all the pieces you will need that way. Good luck and enjoy the build. Definitely this is true.

    Reaching 100 posts quickly

    Do you have an opinion, an area of expertise? Then it should be fairly easy to achieve 100 worthy posts. Look at someone's build, state your opinion or what you know of the subject matter then simply offer up some useful information and or tips to make it better. You don't need to be some kind of Guru or pro builder to offer an opinion. Good luck and shy away from 2 or 3 word posts, that's great, lol or you have instructions are some of my least favorites and I feel they should just be deleted sometimes.

    [MOC] Nissan Patrol Offroad SUV

    It does look better and I do like a good crawler, working on one myself in fact. I think it really helped lowering it one stud, to me though that front grill portion just sticks out way to far, I think if you shortened it up a couple of studs it would look so much better. Anyway looks like fun enjoy and thanks for showing it to us.

    [MOC] House in the Old District

    Such a well done deceptively simple looking build turned out really well, especially fond of the color scheme. Sounds like the start of a good joke, "how do you make a unicorn cry".

    Project GC in 1:40 and 1:100

    Congrats on finishing, to bad, no time for more pictures though, I never seem to tire of looking at them. It just looks absolutely amazing, just wondering does the real ship have a dedicated helicopter or is the pad just for whoever feels like dropping in.

    The Flintstones - LEGO Ideas

    Personally I was hoping for the great Kazoo, although I will still be getting this set, I very much like it.

    Beamless Chassis Design?

    Frames are indeed very useful, in my storage and sorting system I actually have frames in with my connectors instead of with my beams. So I guess I, at least see them more as connectors than beams. Either way I certainly don't see beams going away, if anything they seem to be becoming more common as I see them in many system builds, holding constructs together.
