  1. I live 100km from Billund and did so in 80's as well allthough in another town. I had 7740, 7760, 7838/9, the stop lights/automated switches and a few rolling stock. Sadly it's all gone now I sold two 7750 black wheels on BL for 50EUR/each but it's more than six months ago so they won't show up in the priceguide Cheers, Ole
  2. Yes, 7750 - sorry! TLG sold the black motor for those needing a replacement for the sets needing a black motor. Or perhaps also for those kids who wanted to MOC ;)
  3. Also 7745 So you want us to trawl through the BL cat to look for missing inventory? Why? That's a BL mistake (or Peeron or whoever made the inventory list) it's not a TLG quirk, so not really interesting imho What is interesting is why TLG never used the large 7755 wheel in black since it does indeed exist Cheers, Ole

    Pneumatic Axle Brake Design

    Well it does work rather nicely, the steering not so much It's true that brake locking on trucks, trains etc are always "on" and it's the air (pneumatic parts) that keeps it off. In case of failure (lack of air) the brakes will lock. Hopefully Cheers, Ole

    [WIP] Rough terrain crane MKII

    I think you're off to a wrong foot here, imho No actual real life "rough terrain" crane have double wishbone suspension and outriggers like that Now, it can be rather difficult to make outriggers that actually work properly TLG did fine with 8460 (the setup you partly copied) and failed with 42009 (more realistic but doesn't actually work) But I think as this scale a proper classic "horizontal out + vertical down" type of outriggers should be doable. You got the scale and probably also the parts to do it I'd much rather see that working than any type of suspension (which is rather boring on this type of vehicle) Kudos for the straight 6L though, because that is what these machines often have

    Brick separators

    They can be found in red and trans-clear and are indeed being picked up by collectors for a pretty penny

    General Part Discussion

    That used to be my liftarm But now the crazy belgian has it for his amazing collection He runs a very nice shop with loads of rare parts (and is a very honest and legit seller btw), but I think this one will stay in his personal collection Interestingly this part was made before the year 2000 and is 16L in length so it's somewhat not fitting the current odd size liftarm system. I guess TLG was still finding their way with this new fancy un-studded future back then. It's also rather roughly finished so it didn't come from a fully fleshed out mould Cheers, Ole

    Lego "Space City"

    Actually there IS an official Space Police III "future city" : There are quite a few of these named Log 01, 02, 03 etc .. I also believe that there is a "behind the scenes" video from the guys who made the videos. And to boot I think I've seen some LDD files for some of the buildings Cheers, Ole
  12. I had a MISB 6382 that I parted out on BL, I think I got 20EUR for that sticker sheet. Should be easy to replicate though
  13. Neat! There are other parts that's not from 1983, like the twenty button computers .. And those seem to have round bottoms. The 1984 Space Dart design is also there ..

    question about theme juniorisation

    It's a real term and it's EB that's being childish about it. I think it originated on LUGnet and you can find references to it all the way back to '98 when the forum started I believe it came about with Town JUNIOR (<-- get it?) sets of the late 90's. Those sets were indeed dumbed down compared to what came earlier AND was aimed at the same target group. TLG messed up and brought back proper Town/City While TLG do indeed make toys for all ages the term is rather specific and very real so you're as wrong as you can be
