    Your Best Technic Bargains

    Then you're daft. It's a common scam that's been around since the invention of the human being

    Your Best Technic Bargains

    Yes, that's my first hit on google also

    Your Best Technic Bargains

    Come on, don't tell me you didn't google shappera.com before paying? Yes, Paypal will probably bail you out, but it might be a lenghtly battle Also, 77USD it most likely below TLG's cost (margin/profit on LEGO is indeed quite slim) so why in the world did you think this was a good idea? Hope it turns out allright Cheers, Ole

    And you shouldn't believe it either
  5. TLG are allready selling every SW minfig they ever made, individually You can buy them through Bricklink. TLG owns Bricklink Yes, it's an extra step from buying them on lego.com but I'm not sure the lawyers agree Interesting times, indeed Cheers, Ole
  6. Bumping this for VLE https://www.backoftheboxbuilds.com/set-6080/ Cheers, Ole

    SB00201 TS-PROJECT (MOC Tie Silencer UCS)

    Being an old geezer I've had the Techfig seats since 1986 but not once have I ever thought about using them for minifigs. Nice to learn something new The project looks topnotch, the instruction booklet is amazing and prized fairly for a labour of love from a MOC'er, imho However, there's one thing that sticks out like a sore thumb and that's the curved slopes used in the angled part of the wings. Was it not possible to use non-curved slopes? Perhaps the 1x4 type? Cheers, Ole

    42100 Liebherr R9800 Excavator

    10179 would like a word with you
  9. 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
  10. 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 ;)
  11. 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
