  1. Thank you! It seems that I don't own the pieces required... oh well, too bad! Thanks again!
  2. Any inspiration or examples of passing two axles through a turn-table? I'm trying to power up a crawler crane's tracks from the super-structure, but I'm completely clueless as to how to do this while maintaining the super-structure rotation ability. Thanks!

    42128 - American Tow Truck

    It looks more akin to 42108, doesn't it? Or do you mean the color scheme?
  4. This is brilliant! Thanks a lot!
  5. I have 42098, and I'm looking to do some modifications as a learning experience. One of the ideas I have in mind is a crane truck (like 8258). What is puzzling me to no end, is how do I make the gearbox work through the turntable? I believe that the room I have to work with will be smaller in the 42098 set, but I still have no idea how to tackle this problem. At least one axle has to go through the turntable but is not enough. From the looks of it, the gearbox selector is on the side of the truck, so it has to be possible. Any hints you may have? Thanks!
  6. @Seasider, @Zerobricks thanks both, appreciate your replies! I just downloaded Stud.io, seems to have better support nowadays.
  7. Not sure if this is the right topic to ask, but this question probably worth its own thread. Which software do you all recommend for doing 3d models and instructions? I'm ok with a steep learning curve and with pay software, I am looking for anything that will worth investing my time in. Thanks a lot!
  8. Thanks, appreciate the reply! Would it be too much to ask for a picture without some bottom pieces? Thanks again!
  9. This looks great! I'm considering purchasing the instructions, but I was wondering, how difficult would it be for a beginner to rise the whole truck by one stud?
  10. Thank you all. I'm not familiar with the software you mention, but I'll google it up. Thanks again!
  11. This may be a dumb question, but how do you guys plan out modifications to original models? Let's say there is something I want to modify on a Model A, and said modifications should be performed at an early stage of the building, how do you envision what goes where? For instance, if I add something, how do I know that wouldn't mess something else later on? Is it trial and error? Specifically, I want to modify the outriggers on 42108 (I know that there are some MOCs out there that does that, I just wanted to experiment for myself). How do I plan ahead for later steps? This may be an easy one, since I can clearly see what room is left after I'm done, but what if I want to modify the gearbox on 42082? But this is more a general kind of question, I hope that makes sense. For reference, I bought my first sets after 25 years... I used to build very small Technic sets when I was a kid. 1k+ sets look massive to me! Thanks!

    @M_longer thanks for the tip! @msk6003 are you planning to release instructions? If not, may I get some pictures on the gearbox and the right side of the boom? Thanks!
