  1. I know it is easier to write than actually do it but... Could this old part help? 6571: Also, it is a bit rare part....

    You are right... and that's an annoyance... so inline with the spirit of this thread!

    If I understud you well, you can do it with the old 4143 gears... I think only with these ones... and they are not that easy to use...
  4. 17: 10 18: 6 27: 4 22: 3 11: 2 3: 1 Incredible contest, very very difficult to choose! Many entries that I really like, and no points to give… Congratulations to all contestants and EB!
  5. Maybe you could also take a look at set 8257 Cyber Strikers. Not exactly what you described, but the effect is very cool, maybe it could be used for fire spitting. There are videos of it, search yt. And in the end, please do show us what you have built.
  6. Hi, Instead of one port for firing and one for raise/lower, why not a port for a gearbox and the other port for the action? I mean, a gearbox with three outputs, three functions: raise/lower, fire and rotate? Space might be a problem... and a chalenge...
  7. Hi everybody, I have created free instructions for this MOC in rebrickable. Check it here. Have a nice day!
  8. Hi everybody! This is RSR-911 Space Cruiser, an alternate model of set 42096. 42096 lights are canopies. Inspired by that, I did this MOC. It was really fun to build, hope you like it. Features: Retractable Feet with suspension Openable Canopies Retractable Rotating Antenna Ejection Seats Stand Description plate LEGO 42096 C model (87% parts) Ship: 1105 parts (69%) Stand: 261 parts (16.3%) Name Plate: 24 parts (1.5%) Free instructions here. See the video below. More pictures here. Video:
  9. [This] might be a good option, I did not try it, I don´t have them available: or maybe other thing that hangs on minifig neck...
  10. If I understood your problem, minifigs can give you a hand… or rather two. Not perfect, there is a bit of tension and you get two protuberant radius bones...
  11. Wow, this is very cool! Small, and with an unusual playability!
  12. In my opinion, I would exclude GBCs. GBCs are a specialized field that deserves its own contest.
  13. No cars, trucks, cranes, boats, planes, chopers.... spaceships (!),... quite a challenge. Watch out, GBCs are none of those!
  14. Cool! Will you put a tooth in the right side of the left part? Maybe one in the right and one in the middle?
  15. 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!
  16. 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.
  17. 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!
  18. 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:
  19. I still don't have it, but that's an idea!

    [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!
  21. Maybe not quite technic, check video below. Even size, studs... But it is a nice part and a nice set!
  22. 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?
  23. Very cool design! I have been using the design below but that has a real flatness advantage.
