  1. Very interesting solution for the HOG crossing the drive axle ! I'm not a big fan of the front looks, but the real seems to be strange as well, so that's okay :D On a side note, I'm really wondering what is the point of such a vehicle IRL…
  2. If I had to guess, I would place my bet on a Koenigsegg or an McLaren If you look at the Speed Champions theme : 1 year before the Porsche, there was a Porsche set released : https://rebrickable.com/sets/75910-1/porsche-918-spyder/?inventory=1 1 year before the Bugatti, there was a Bugatti set released : https://rebrickable.com/sets/75878-1/bugatti-chiron/?inventory=1 The year of the Lamborghini, there was a Lamborghini set released : https://rebrickable.com/sets/76899-1/lamborghini-urus-st-x-lamborghini-huracán-super-trofeo-evo/?inventory=1 Last year (2021), there was a Koenigsegg and a McLaren released. So that's my bet.
  3. After tinkering a lot and trying different ideas, I chose one. It is going to be a truck, that can be converted into a 4 leg walking vehicle (like the ATAT) I have a first prototype for the leg deployment mechanism : Truck Mode Walking mode : For now it's still an early prototype, but the plans are to make something that is able to rise on his own leg. (I'm scared that the LA won't support the weight…)
  4. This sounds really promising. Just one question. Can we use pneumatics powered by a motor to perform the transformation ?
  5. I've recently bought 8436, 8386 and 8448 in a like new condition with original boxes. The set were clearly build once and unbuilt and placed in boxes back, as the flex axles aren't even bent. All of this for 200 CHF (~190 €)
  6. what is this part ? It seems to have rounded holes on both sides (red arrows) It doesn't go lower as a L beam would. So is that the second even length Liftarm ?
  7. Lego Finnaly made black wheel arches. Is that me or the engine block is trans red ? This looks like it to me too.
  8. They look pretty good (Definitely better than the white ones on this model) The white ones could be cool on some supercars though.
  9. After a lot of troubles to unbuild parts of the truck, I finally managed to add two air tanks. This was a real pain, because the trucks is strongly built in every directions. So getting access to the pneumatic tubes to reroute the pipe from the pump in the tanks was a real nightmare. If anyone is interested in this mod, I can give details on how to do it. And a quick upgrade : I've added a cheese slope in white, because the door had a hole there. And I modified the antennas from LBG to Metallic Silver.
  10. I think that there's always going to have some "problems". Yes front-paging the voting topic will make more votes, but as Jim said, these person will probably vote for the coolest looking one… even if that's not the point of the contest… I quite like this idea, this would allow to have entries that follow the rules more closely. Because in some cases, with two stage voting, a perfect entry according to the Jury might not end up in the top 10. And one last thing too, concerning the WIP topic, as many have said, some finished project appear a few day before the deadline. I feel that the presence of a WIP topic should be somehow mandatory. Because as I understand these contests, they are also here to make the forum live, so WIP threads allow for that. But on the other hand, a WIP can be frustrating, if there little to no answers on it. This might lead some people to think that their model isn't good, and they might give up on it…
  11. Congrats to everyone, this has been a very interesting contest. As I've already said, choosing the entries was really hard, this shows IMO the level of the presented MOCs. Even if I haven't scored a lot of points, I'm satisfied with my MOC. Moreover, this contest makes me want to do more studies remake (I might do a modern interpretation of the space shuttle one day)
  12. This top ten is full of very great entries. One thing I'm a little bit disappointed in is that the scale factor was not enough taken in account IMHO. Don't get me wrong, the space mega figure is a great mod, but I feel that It doesn't follow the "rules" of the contest. Again, I'm maybe nitpicking, but that's what I feel… (I have nothing against any MOCs, everyone did a great job )
