    [WIP] Telescoping boom excavator

    A cool model. I still have questions about the concept itself. From the pictures on Gradall I would assume the telescopic arm is resting on another arm which is lowered and raised by hydraulic like at a normal excavator not by a rotational mechanism. Also I read the extending would be also done by hydraulics -maybe this would be an easier way to follow? Anyway I would assume your gearbox is not fitting into a supercar, that's a pity...

    [WIP] Straddle Carrier

    Hi Lasse, beside the other points like steering or gearing down the lifting mechanism I would like to mention that rigidity is a main point as you experienced. If you look to the top part of a real straddle carriers it is not flat but similar thick to the supports. In your model it is only one liftarm thick but you can easily make it 5 layers high also giving you enough space for diagonal connections between supports and top. As you know liftarms are anyway not as rigid as studded technic bricks and can bend much easier, This makes it also more demanding especially for such a construction. I liked also the short lfting of the carrier itself which of course does not happen in reality. In the end you already created a nice construction and you took a good challenge.

    [MOC] [INSTRUCTIONS] UCS Tantive IV - CR-90 Corvette

    It is not worth to split the 10019 for this Tantive IV - there are only around 150 parts you can use for this build. As you can imagine this is a totally other build than 10019- times and available parts changed a lot. From the new Tantive 75244 you can use around 600 parts. My advise would be to buy the instructions and simply check what you have. Anyway you need e.g. 344 times the white slope 93273 - pretty sure you have to buy some- same was valid for me even I have around 1 million pieces.

    (MOC) - Cavegod's UCS Sandcrawler

    Hi Christian, here are my comments to the pdf instructions, as you wished also with page numbers and step numbers if needed. For other topics please check page 6 and 7 of the thread, the hints from brickmarlin. Also the motor for the conveyor belt is missing. Some points were too easy to fix during build, others were not easy and will be most probably also not easy to fix in the instructions.. It was really a pleasure to build it. I still have to fix some panels on th ehullwhich are lying in a box, desperately waiting to get in operation. p.21. 11: free hanging pieces, fixed with next page p.33, 8;p.57, 8;p.61, 8: free hanging pieces, fixed with next page p.28, 16;p.42, 16;p.52, 16;p.70, 16;p.75, 16: free standing pieces, fixed with next step Technic bricks on pins and between plates at same time: p.83, 2,3; p.83,4; p.84, 4/6 etc. repeated action for whole base also p.217, 136 etc.: plates to put between technick bricks p.88, 17: technic bricks coming on p.106, 36 p.96, 26: bricks, liftarm in between comes with front door on page 426 p.112, 12: free hanging pieces, fixed with next page p.126, 45: technic bricks to build in afterwards p.183, 102: start of putting inverted slopes between bricks, whole front like this until p.215 p.271, 189: bricks came too late p.301, 8: wegde plates too late p.305, 17: round bricks too late p.308, 7: free hanging plate p.311, p.312 2,3: round bricks too late p.351, p.356 technic brick between pins and bricks p.353, 7 free hanging bricks p.354, 12 technic brick between pins and bricks p.352, p.358 actuator put too late on axle p.374 red technic brick coming too late p.381, 382 plate with hole and plate too early p.408, p.409 actuator to put on pin between bricks p.502, p.562, p.573 walls to put between hinge bricks p.539, hinges to be put between plate and tiles, fixed on page 559, tiles too early p.575, black tile and wedges not fitting with grilled tile on bottom greetings, Martin

    Lego Licensed Parts available from Bricks & Pieces

    Hi all, I want to mention that new pieces from 75275 A-Wing and from the Monkey Kid sets are now available on B&P So I had to order the trans-yellow 6x6 dishes and trans windscreens and some other stuff. Also the modified head "pig" was available but I had to shorten my order this time - it was getting too long again...
