    42100 Liebherr R9800 Excavator

    As a huge fan of mining machines this set is awesome, I have the 1:50 diecast model of the excavator version of this and that cost me just over $1000NZD, also recently got the 1:48 diecast Caterpillar 6090FS which would be the main competitor of this machine in real life and it cost me $1600NZD. Not a fan of the smartphone control though, hopefully it will have enough room in it to change it to remote control somehow. Loving the new bucket for it, 2 concerns I have is it seems to good to be true to operate like it did in the video, there will be something that wont work right or it will suffer the same issues 8043 had but for myself even if it does It will still look good on display which is how it will probably spend its life anyway, and again I wish for a set like this and other flagship sets they would do printed label pieces instead of stickers, they will only last a year and start to crack. As for the price, luckily Toy World in NZ let us layby stuff and pay it off so no issues there.

    The Broyt 1000T is a awesome machine, can't wait to see how you do this one. P.s how it the wheel loader coming along?.

    Caterpillar 990

    Awesome, please do a 994K and instructions, I need a big mining loader to go with my dump truck of yours.
  4. Can someone try replacing the blue soft axle in the horseshoe in the front with just the grey hose and remove the grey connectors?, just want to see how it looks.

    42083 - Bugatti Chiron

    I wonder how it would look if it had the grey hose in place of the blue soft axle and the grey connectors removed.

    42083 - Bugatti Chiron

    I really love this, the only thing I am not a fan of is the horseshoe in the front, it sticks out too far. I feel like the grey hose needs to be where the blue soft axle is, but it needs the soft axle against it.

    [MOC] Challenger MT800E tracked tractor

    That is a shame about the track drive, was looking forward to building this. Can anyone fix it please?, would be a good one for Efferman to sort out (hint hint). Might have to build it as a static model with no PF, if it cant be fixed because it still looks awesome.

    42078 - Mack Anthem

    Yay, finally a video about the b model. I am really liking this, especially since it has a ejector plate in it, cant wait.

    42078 - Mack Anthem

    The Mack anthem is nice, but am I the only one that is excited by the b model more?. Any more info about the b model garbage truck?.

    [MOC] Tractor Dump Trailer

    Very nice job on the trailer, I can't wait to build it. I also have Efferman's modded Xerion and was wondering does the M motor struggle to lift the bin?, even going through the clutch gear and the whole pto system?.

    [MOC] H-24 Engine

    Very cool, need to put this on the 8457 Power puller, or 2 of them
  14. Here are my mods of the 42062 Container Yard set. Started with making the truck 3 axle instead of 2 just by extending the rear end: Then added indicators front and rear and flashing lights: Made the trailer 3 axle just by tripling the orignal design with a few modifications and added pins for the containers to sit on. You can also turn the pins over to turn it into a flat deck trailer aswell: Added a opening door and back wall to the containers: I built both the straddle and reach stacker and was happy with both: Now I am really happy with the set. Let me know what you think.

    my 8043 mods

    XtremeBuilder I didn't bump the thread Lucio before me did. I didn't realise it was from a couple of years ago otherwise I wouldn't have commented on it. agrof I eventually gave up on my 8043 a year or 2 ago even after trying the ultimate 8043 I now have Jurgens Linkbelt which works much better.
