  1. 42098 is also worth a look - lots of parts and a string of alternative builds on Rebrickable or 42108 if into cranes etc.
  2. Having built 42096 with various mods, looked at the incorrect proportions, tore it down and built JamesJT/Geyserbricks MOC-35921. Very satisfying build and a great result.

    Technic Model Comparison

    @fosamax - of the 3 cranes of this type I have built I would rate M_Longer's alternate from 42043 the best, followed by Dyen's with 42108 a poor last (even with M_longer's improvements).

    Technic Model Comparison

    Having built both I found Dyen's one a more interesting build, and the grandchildren were most impressed by it as well. Only purchased the car transporter set so I could build the garbage truck. Well done Dyen.
  5. Thanks @Agrof - the suspension patch is brilliant and the end to an enjoyable build now all the parts have finally arrived. Have also completed the Hot Roadster which was a big nit with the grandchildren!!

    8043 Receiver Question

    8043 came with V1 receivers - I converted mine to the Ultimate version which also used V1's.
  7. Nice one @Agrof - look forward to building it once our Covid-18 lockdown ends an d I can Bricklink a few extra parts/ Very good PDF too for my ageing eyes!
  8. Using the Rebrickable compare utility there are 520 additional parts (114 types) most of which are reasonably common.

    Mining truck II

    Looks a really great MOC to me - but cannot find it on Rebrickable. Do you have a link please.
  11. Had not seen this post either - having built it earlier this year from photos can only agree with the reviewer - still have it on my display shelf. Having built a number of Nico71;s mocs look forward to the appearance of a new F1.
  12. There was an earlier post on removing theprintes from the fenders

    42108 - Mobile Crane

    Not really that impressed wiyj this one - compared it to the model by M_Longer from the 42043 set (MOC-6060 on Rebrickable) still on y display shelf, or even the lesser one my Dyen97 from the 42078 set (MOC-21418).

    Mack Granite 6x4 dump truck

    Thanks very much for the .pdf - even with my failing eyesight it was easy to follow, and am very pleased with the finished model which shows excellent detail & scaling. Just in passing, steps 252 to 355 have got a bit overlaid, but no problem.
