    Generic Contest Discussion

    In my opinion, I would exclude GBCs. GBCs are a specialized field that deserves its own contest.

    No cars, trucks, cranes, boats, planes, chopers.... spaceships (!),... quite a challenge. Watch out, GBCs are none of those!

    Efferman's Custom Parts

    Cool! Will you put a tooth in the right side of the left part? Maybe one in the right and one in the middle?
  4. Somehow, I missed your comment... I will probably build some more, the RSR911 B-model was really a pleasure to build. The wheels on the wings should be vertical takeoff thrusters, but the wheels are a bit too big for the size of the ship. In the beginning I felt the Corvette had not enough parts to build something, but it ended up not so bad, I think... The Corvette was also very useful to learn how to make instructions in stud.io, which was my goal. I will try to do instructions for the RSR911 if I find time for it. I still must learn how to manage flex-axles in stud.io, though! Thanks for your comments.

    Efferman's Custom Parts

    Ok, I see what you mean. Looking again to your video I noticed what you said... you only "print holes" never pins. Another picture: in red pin holes to connect to the back, two of them to keep in place. In green pin holes to connect to the sibling... maybe a bit bulky, but probably possible? .Well... lunch time! Nice talk!

    This is pretty cool! Considering that I don´t kow anything about 3D printing: maybe you could do the parts uneven, each one with one tooth only, say on the left. And the right side would connect to the left side by some sliding mechanism (is this possible in 3D printing?). Then, the right side wall would have a tooth but the left side wall would not. Something like this:
  7. I still don't have it, but that's an idea!
  8. Hi everybody, I thought on creating instructions from my RSR911 Space Cruiser 42096 alternate model. But I never had done instructions before, so I decided to try it in a smaller model. I did this Corvette Space Fighter as a 42093 alternate model, and made instructions for it. It's a simple space ship with retractable feet and openable canopy. It also includes a stand to place it over your desk. The ship has 387 parts and the stand 76, giving a 79% usage of 42093 parts. I modeled it in Stud.io and created instructions from there. Everything available on rebrickable. Any comments about the instructions as well as the building are welcome. Here are some pictures: And a movie: More pictures here. Thanks and Regards!

    [MOC] Volvo FH

    Last sunday I was driving and passed through a truck like that, and immediately thought "that´s where that MOC came from!". I think I had never noticed those trucks before. Good work!

    Maybe not quite technic, check video below. Even size, studs... But it is a nice part and a nice set!

    Grove GMK6400 Mobile Crane (49.5 wheel)

    This is pretty cool! I like it manual too. But it must be a bit boring to turn some of those manual commands, lots of wheel turns.... maybe you could use an external motor, a bit like an electrical screw driver made out of lego, for the longer operations?

    Flat subtractor [INSTRUCTIONS]

    Very cool design! I have been using the design below but that has a real flatness advantage.
  13. Check this: Last september, from Lego (Replacement Parts -> Buy Bricks), 0.65€ each. The basket ball ones. I think soccer are not available. KU: 6261264 2020-09-04 Enviada 0.65 Unfortunately haven´t used them yet... I need a contest!
  14. Well, there are some nice closed loop small GBCs out there (miniloops,) . You could imagine a line of miniloop GBCs sets, that could connect to each other, forming a bigger one. Maybe some of them manual and one or two with a motor, that could be used to power the union of several. Wow, this would be nice!
