    How could a Technic super car possibly be any good with gaps in the bodywork??????

    Technic 2017 Set Discussion

    I have been away from here for a bit so forgive my ignorance but last time I was here the talk was that the super car was to be the first of a series of supercars.... Not a one off.. Can somebody please bring me up to speed :) Henry

    Technic 2017 Set Discussion

    All this is good and well.... But where is the super car?
  4. Hi Guys here is my first MOC in a little while. It is an alternative model for set 42024. Unfortunately It has way too many parts to be able to enter it in the current competition but since alternate models are the flavour of the month I thought a few of you might appreciate it it anyway. I found this was a complicated set to moc from due to all the different colours and lack of a good quantity of parts in any one colour. It uses about 95% of the parts from the set. I will post a couple of pics here and you can check out the whole thing at my moc pages.

    Snow Groomer

    Well I have not built a model for a while. This is the fist one all year. I have had plans to do a c model to the 42038 snow vehicle since it came out but since there have been at least a couple of other c models made to this set, One very good one by Buster Haus, I put my plans on hold a while. The model has the following features. Doors open close. Front blade raise and lower via twin in cab lever. spring loaded to hold in up or down position. Front blade adjustable to 5 positions left to right...with locking pin. Front blade tilt via linear actuator running off PTO. Central gearbox behind cab to switch between front and rear PTO. Rear groomer raise and lower via twin lever next to rear tray . spring loaded to hold in up or down position. Rear groomer tilt via linear actuator running off PTO. can adjust between rake only, rake and scrape, and scrape only. Small crane behind cab can turn lift and winch. Enjoy :) See all the pics at my bricksafe http://bricksafe.com...38-snow-groomer Cheers Henry

    42056 - Porsche Speculation

    Sorry but i did not see this particular question from roppie11 in the other discussion and had I posted my answer to it in the other topic i'm sure it would have made exactly no sense without the original question to connect the dots. I don't attend this eurobricks forum anywhere near the frequency I once did and it is for this prime example of what is has become and it is a real shame.. An answer to any question relating to the specific model 42056 is far more "on topic" than a helpful busy body taking the time to point out that a comment is "off topic" wouldn't we all agree? But hey "on with the show" I look forward to the next 102 pages without a single deviation from the allowed content whatever that might be.. I'm sure it won't get boring at all.

    42056 - Porsche Speculation

    Sometimes it is depends on local sales and exchange rate at the time.. No it is far worse than that. A couple years ago we were the same as US dollar but the Lego sets over here were still a good bit more at the time. must be shipping an GST tax and stuff added to the cost as well. The only hope for a better buy on this one for us Aussies is for it to be sold somewhere other than the Lego official on-line store and wait for a discount.. I doubt a discount from overseas seller and then currency exchange and postage costs will make much difference on this one at the moment..

    I have done a few C models over the years. They would have all been posted here on eurobricks at the time but for a quick reference they can be found on my moc pages link

    Snow Groomer

    Hi, The bevel gear behind the cabin is for turning the crane. The other bevel gear inside the rear tray is for the front and rear PTO i.e. the linear actuators. you can switch between front and back via the gearbox. the switch for the gearbox is here. not so easy to see a bit out of focus..

  15. You should ask user Paul B about how to sell all your stuff I think he has done it about 4 times.. No that he is online here at the moment but he might respond to a pm or something.

    [MOC] Bulk Rubbish Loading Truck

    Trying to keep everybody happy on multiple forums is never going to work.. Build for yourself... Enjoy it for yourself... But if you do feel the need to share it with others be mindful of who and how your sharing it.. Don't lose your passion over it though it's not worth it
  17. I would love to get a hat like that :thumbup: So long as it has size adjustment.. Those one size fits all flexifit hats dont match my pin head :laugh:

    congrats on your first moc c-models of small sets can be very hard because there is such a limit to parts available..
  19. Welcome back Madoca.. I think your work is excellent as always you have a real talent :thumbup: I wonder sometimes how a larger scale supercar would look with your touch... The corvette is still one of my favourites.. Keep going mate.

    Renting out LEGO Technic

    The way I see it if you take the time to purchase all the parts to make up somebody's MOC then they are your parts and you can do what you like with them.. It is no different to buying from a bricklink seller who just happens to have 100% of the parts needed for a certain MOC.. If you do include in your sale description the helpful information that you are selling the parts for a certain MOC you will save somebody the time and stress of trying to find all the parts themselves which can be quite daunting the first few times you do it.. However you should not provide them with instructions for rebuilding but encourage them to purchase a licence for the instructions from the designer. I would rent out all my Technic to fellow Tasmanians but since Paul B seems to have gone AWOL again I guess I'm the only one left. :laugh:
  22. Thanks Anio.. A video is worth a 1000 pictures :)

    Nathanaƫl Kuipers 2015 Predator Supercar

    do not know... but i always wonder why people asking for video for non RC/non motorized models? what can you see at a video what pictures and text can't tell you? I would like to see the door lifting mechanism in action. I would like to see the model being spun around to view every angle. I would like to see the gearbox demonstrated even if it doesn't do it justice. Vampire GT on youtube has 64000 views. Sounds like plenty of people also appreciate a good video of a non motorized but awesome lego Cheers for the review Blackbird
