  1. I understand that certain traditions have been living here. But as a relatively new member of the EB, I will share my thoughts on the ratings:

    Alternatively, to put separate assessments according to several criteria. Design score, functions score, difficult score (each competition has its own criteria and their significance). Because if I had 50 posts, it would be extremely difficult for me to compare a beautiful car with a functionally complex excavator. Also, it would be interesting to see the ratings of each work. And by the amount of points, it is already possible to determine the candidates for victory.


  2. Everyone has their own opinion, and that is why there are organizers of the competition and the jury.

    For me, such contests are, first of all, a fun pastime. Results are secondary. And if my work was not assessed as I wanted, then I did something wrong (for example, I preferred someone else's opinion to my understanding of the essence of the competition :drunk:).

    Congrats to the winners, respect for the organizers and thanks to the participants!

    Wait for another challenge!

    Я действительно думаю, что может. Принимая во внимание правила и дух текущего конкурса, размер и сложность модели, возможно, не были приняты во внимание как решающий фактор. В этой ситуации, когда ваше судно на воздушной подушке и вилочные погрузчики GerritvdG были идеально выполнены для больших сборок, и они много раз приземлялись бы как третья, четвертая и шестая, потому что они меньше, означает, что если бы было равномерное разделение точек или меньший промежуток между местами , если бы эти меньшие модели выбирались чаще, чем те, которые были выбраны первыми, это могло иметь значение.

    С учетом сказанного, мне интересно, сколько людей на самом деле сосредоточились на безупречном выполнении задачи при голосовании, а не на сложности модели. Вероятно, мы увидим это в результатах, но мне интересно, был ли мой подход к условиям правильным.

    Just for conversation...

    Currently in top-10 by official rules 7th and 9th places has fewer votes (number of inclusions in the top 6 excluding position) than 11th and 12th places in official rankings. Not such a big difference (certainly not for those who are around 10th place). 

  4. 24. 8880 Supercar studless

    Original set: 8880

    • Independent suspension of all wheels (8 x 6.5L hard shock absorbers)
    • Steering by HOG and steering wheel, turning all wheels, Ackermann
    • All-wheel drive
    • 4-speed gearbox with ball-joint selector
    • Identical to the original transmisson (4x4, 3 differntials, 4-speed gearbox, chain drive)
    • V8 fake engine (identical to original camber)
    • Rising headlights
    • Opening hood (in back)

    I think it's either go fully for the panels and round shapes or stick to liftarms where the beams where in original.

    Also I feel like you've changed continuous line that was going from front wheel arch to the rear, that was angled, to a horizontal one, and it affected the original shape which was a bit more "wedgy".

    I have to admit, the panels are not mine. So, I continue to use mostly beams.

    And after some hours of measuring I found a fault in geometry - the rear pillar really turned out to be lower than necessary. Now I need to seriously change the rear part, at the same time redo the roof.

    Thans for remark. How did you see that?) Diamond eye!

    You may wanna check out this thread for some inspiration ;)


    I think this is a loose interpretation

    I think this looks pretty close to the original. Converting this set to studless is no mean feat either. Great work. :thumbup:


    Maybe close to original, but far from good work

    Да, ряд автомобилей Ford, GM и Honda теперь используют 10 скоростей, и я уверен, что и другие компании тоже (Lexus упоминался выше)

    Я только что построил коробку передач, и предполагаю, что принцип работы такой:

    Трехступенчатая коробка передач работает как обычная секвентальная коробка передач, но четырехступенчатая вычитает одну из четырех меньших величин из каждой из трех скоростей. Казалось бы, получается двенадцать скоростей, но поскольку одна установка вычитает ту же величину, что и другая коробка передач, в результате чего выходной сигнал остается фиксированным, а другая установка заставляет вычитать больше с одной стороны, чем добавляется с другой стороны, создание реверса.

    Это звучит правильно?

    Коробка передач очень аккуратная!

    Sounds like a gearbox for truck. But there usually 4-gears, demultiplier and multiplier.

    What I would do is first replicate the original faithfully with beams as a baseline, and then see where I can improve things with more modern techniques. Maybe something like the flexible hoses on the top of the wheel arches.. could look good if you can make them symmetric.

    But anyway, nice job so far, keep it up, cudos for taking on this big one!


    I try to replicate original frame in body, but tail of 8880 - it is nightmare for today lego :)




    And I understand that design is "dirty" for now

    Hm, it looks weird if I may say so. The bodywork doesn't look as good as the studded 8880 bodywork. I don't think 8880 is beautiful, but it looks "cool". And your bodywork lost that "cool" somewhere. Maybe it is the more rounded off look, idk

    One of the things I think need improvement are the pop up headlights. They are way too small, and give the car a bit of a tired look.

    At first, I guess I just don't know how to work with panels. 

    8880 is beautiful like 80th and early 90th supercars like Lambo Countach, Ferrari F512, Corvette C4. Strong lines, edges. And using technnic panels - it is biodesign of 90th (like paintings by salvador dali).

    About headlights - I will try to make the look more joyful

    I love it. Screw what the naysayers say! :D

    Sure, it looks weird. But so did the original! Great job so far @RazzPinazzo


    But I must not disgrace the legend

    You're missing the beams on the sides of the cabin, which would contribute to the looks pretty significantly. Also are missing the yellow accents of the skirtline on the sides. The hood looks like it's bulging out more than it should, the shape of those curved panels doesn't seem to be ideal or maybe they should be attached a bit lower or something. I'm also not sure about the rear spoiler.

    The interior and the engine cover look really nice and the rear (except the spoiler) is also well done.

    Sides are in progress now. I have not yet decided whether to make doors that open or strictly follow the original design.

    Rear spoiler is absolutely temporary, I know that it ugly.

    For engine I did not use standard modern mounts and make like original - large camber almost like the boxer.

  9. Comrades, you make me worry)

    I really respect your opinion, but the rules says "Try to stay as close to the original as possible" many times in every case. You know that "replacement" it is not so easy - connecting by plates and 1/2 studs displacement, specific details in original makes a lot of complications in "studless" design. I think that main problems for me - another gear ratios, modified steering system and some creatives in interior... Anyway, I will continue in the same spirit for now and then we'll see. Thanks for feedback!

    I think the shape of the windscreen frame is wrong. it should be, how should I say it, concave, meaning the curve in front and above the dashboard should be more level while the rest is more steep.
    I've checked that against this photo:


    take a close look at the point where two parts are anchored together near the mirrors - there is small angle difference.

    Yeah, I see that too now. Probably need to lengthen the lower part of the windshield

    @Seasider I don't mind a increased part count, in fact I think it is good thing! But I think the the bigger models should also offer some improved and updated technic funtions.

    And I also think it should be built with bricks that are not outdated. The wheel hubs used here have not been used for over a decade.


    The wheel hubs in 8880 or in my fake?
