    Hi. I have sent you a PM. In case you missed it. Please turn off automatic translation when you post to Eurobricks. This is an English forum and you are responding in Dutch.

    This is definitely more like it! I'm okay with splitting the project from this point.
  11. I was happy to help, even though I am not very happy with the results of the pictures. White and red models are very hard to get right. But at least they are sharp and hi-res

    They are not mutually exclusive, so we still can get both. But let's try to not turn this into a guessing topic again.

    It would help to make it look less like the crawler. Make it entirely black for instance.

    I absolutely get your point. The build is awesome (as usual), but it's not entirely in the spirit of the contest. Feels more like a C-model contest entry. Btw: I will not deny participation since it doesn't violate any rules.

    I actually like this one. Series 7 seems to be pretty good overall.

    This one looks pretty cool. Reminds me that I still have an unfinished (almost done) review of the Microfighters Series 1
