    [CONTEST] Who would join a GBC contest?

    Kinda sums up my feeling about the average reaction (or absence thereof) on MOC posts here, competition entry or not. I'm not sure things will be radically different for a GBC contest, but I think the theme matches well my usual approach: trying to find the most elegant or creative way to get the job done, with the minimum amount of parts (and out of a limited pool). I now know that I can't win on EB doing so, but quite frankly, I don't care. I like to see what other people submit and compare. It's a bit sad of course that I can only rely on myself to rate my builds, but I can't take votings on EB too seriously; they'll always favour the biggest pile of assorted color parts, with the best post-prod photos. Even if the build is in fact fragile, unnecessarily complex or slightly off the theme of the contest. But things may be different with GBC, as it may drag a different population. I look forward seeing this.

    I filled the gap on the side of the tank, in an effort to smooth things a bit. Also replaced the red beam in the frame. Et voilà! New family member:

    I figured double headlights would fit the theme better. Here's what it looks like:

    [MOC] 8838 Tribute Dirt Bike

    With a couple more parts at hand, I wanted to smoothen some details; front mud guard, tank, seat, controls, tail and finally the 3-pin long half liftarm as footrest, as suggested by @Mechbuilds. I think those vintage wheels now got the tribute they deserved!

    [CONTEST] Who would join a GBC contest?

    I'm in! GBCs are a lot of fun to build and watch. I just can't get why Technic fans wouldn't at least give it a try. Of course first places will be taken by people that are already renown on the site, with a lots of time and bricks as always, but whatever; it's fun to build something new. And with GBC, there's at least one objective criteria; the thing must work.

    [TC19] Technic Motorbike Contest - Voting Topic

  8. Yes, I found it quite surprising too. It's interesting to see what people vote for, but as for the why, it remains mostly cryptic to me. The only tendance I could decipher is a lot of voters tend to favor big, over-engineered mocs. The more parts used, the better, it seems.
  9. Thanks for this TC @Jim it's been a blast, as usual !

    There was a bit of sunshine this morning, and I figured sunlight is the best to make those chromes pop out. So I shot my final photos. Now I can prepare my entry post. Cheers!

    Hello ! Modeling an existing bike is quite a challenge, kudos for trying on that. A few remarks, thought.. Are you sure about that caster angle ? Also, the final model seems a bit heavy on system bricks, are your sure you still qualify ? Finally, have you noticed there's no picture of the front side ? Good luck with votings !

    Thanks @Zerobricks! Yep. I guess that's the advantage of building small out of a small bricks pool (I currently have way under 20K Technic bricks); there's a limited amount of possible ways to assemble them.. Thanks a lot for your message! So did I. But rejoice, the pictures will remain here for whenever we need that rush of nostalgia Seriously, thanks again for pointing the right course, captain Manneth Berd!
