  1. If that's all they are looking for then there is no need to advertise the position in the Technic community. Just hire an actor. I think knowledge and enthusiasm for Technic as well as respect within the community are probably important. Depending on what the goals of the program are, it could lend a lot of credibility if they use someone that is well known to AFOLs.
  2. I'm actually thinking about applying. Never done any voice work though. I'd be much more comfortable with written communication.
  3. Here you go. I was a little surprised at how different these look given that they are both orange Aston Martins in the same scale.
  4. I don't know if anyone has built both this and Jeroen's DB-11, but it would be great to see them together. I could render them together if I had the LDraw file.
  5. It's very sophisticated. Mine looks positively moronic by comparison. If I had known his was going to look so good I would have hired a model to stand in for me.
  6. I'm actually OK with this answer as someone who's built a lot of rack and pinion. While realistic, rack and pinion isn't very interesting mechanically. There are a lot of gear systems in Technic, but relatively few mechanical linkages. I'd like to see more of them because they are really useful and therefore a great thing to learn.
  7. Don't forget the Antikythera Mechanism. It is probably my favorite non-vehicular MOC.
  8. How To Order Legos?

    That parts list is a Brickstock file. You need to download the Brickstock software to open it. If you want to create a Bricklink parts list, you can do so from Brickstock. I think Bricklink will also import the file directly now, but you can't just copy-paste the content.
  9. [GBC] The Akiyuki Project

    Every set of instructions has a copyright at the bottom of every page. As the instruction creator, I am always listed along with Akiyuki and anyone else who helped out. The files are all password protected so the copyright cannot be removed. I wonder if these files from Chinese sites still contain my copyright? I wonder if a check is in the mail to my location right now?
  10. Great review Jim. I suspect my opinion will be similar to yours when I end up getting this set, assuming they ever actually decide to release anything in North America again. I am surprised that no one has mentioned the most glaring problem with this "tow truck". There is no tow bar. Therefore, there is no way to actually tow anything. This is just an off-road crane.
  11. Wow, I would have thought you just used Photoshop to achieve the blurred background, but you did it the old fashioned mechanical way. Good work!
  12. The Technic Confessional

    I once put a 3L pin deep inside a model where there should have been a 2L pin and a mechanism was blocked. I didn't want to take it all apart to get it out so I put the model on a drill press and drilled out the pin. I ended up destroying a bunch of parts and needed to rebuild the whole model.
  13. I may do a review eventually, but at this point it is already built so I can't take build photos. I've given my overall impressions earlier in this thread. Is good car. Build it.
