  1. I'm looking into purchasing a larger set now that my wallet has recovered from my last LEGO purchase . The new Liebherr was intriguing, but I didn't like the smartphone and bluetooth integration, it felt a little too unlike LEGO for me. So I have two options right now that I can't choose between. The 42082 Rough Terrain Crane, or the 42055 BWE. Which of these options do you think would be the best investment? (Looking at things like parts, play value, building experience, etc.) Or should I wait until 2021 2H to see what arrives?

    Sorry for the OT but what software did you use to build / render this model? It looks beautiful!

    42113 Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey

    Lol. Wish I knew how I could get one in the States... I'll probably just find the parts on BL and call it a day

    Exactly. And looking at the wording of that 2010 report, it is starting to make some more sense why they upheld this (still sad) decision.

    Thank you @AirDolphin! Hopefully we will see this set on the shelves sometime before Christmas...
  6. +1. Although there will always be a place in my heart for the old blue slides...
  7. Lmao... probably because 42114 actually looks like there was thought put into the design.

    Why does it need this? Seems like it could have just gone into a pinhole instead?
  9. Oh, my... I am quite sincere when I say that this is the best C model I have ever seen. Bravo!

    I think the model as a whole is just a bit too much stretched tall for me. But I am still quite impressed at how accurate the shaping is, especially around the bonnet area
  11. Unfortunately the chassis is not very symmetric, so the only way to incorporate RHD would be to rebuild the thing from scratch and mirror the instructions..

    +1. The Bugatti was terrible for this, and its suspension suffered. It just seems like there could be a more elegant solution.

    Definitely agreed! And I appreciate that the spinning fan when you open the hood is in the same spot as the sticker fan on the outside of the hood

    There is a changeover catch hidden behind the center beam - one of its clutch gears directs to the LA setup, but I do not know where the other one goes (probably drive). And is it just me, or should those three tan gears towards the front not be able to turn at all?

    Also this has the silly Mack engine... as much as I wish for new piston parts I must say I prefer the old ones to this half-bush set up.
