    42053 - Volvo EW160E

    Well, i googled some pics of the real one and I haven't saw any orange part, so why Lego put them on their model??? For sure I'm gonna replace them with yellow and black ones ;)
  4. Thanks for the kind video! It's great to see what's inside over there :D

    [C-MODEL] Snow Groomer

    Woww, big compliments, really nice model, i just bought this set for parts, i like the main model but prefer yours to the b model, it's a better arctic theme model ;)
  6. Thanks for your review, especially from the part of us who'll never get the chance to visit it!
  7. Looking at Sariel's pic the volvo box is big too, can't figure out how they filled it..volvo hasn't so many pieces..
  8. I have the same opinion on many of you about porsche. They created too much expectations on it and then failed in its heart..many say "i don't mind, i put it on display so don't need the gearbox works" but looking at the expectations and the price you pay, it's not good you pay for something that doesn't work as supposed to. If the Lego intent was to produce just a good looking replica of a real car they couldn't put the gearbox in it and make a model as the tumbler (that is a display model in fact hasn't steering wheels for example..) so without functions. But if you decide to put a function in a model, i pretend that it works! And the nice box is not enought to compensate this not working function.
  9. .because this set is not meant to be too "functional"....but rather good looking! They could do it in the creator section as the F-40 ad not in the technic one.... From a technic model you expect functions first and then looking, or not?
  10. Of course, as the 8458 b one
  11. Great review as always. It was my childhood dream too, managed to buy it 2 years ago and love it too. Old instructions are cooler than modern ones, i love them, in one step you put the pieces you put in 10 steps of nowadays books and you had to see carefully where tmput the pieces compared to the previous image. This is so cool. Nowadays ones are too easy, you find even arrows that show you where to put the piece.. Probably in the near future instructions we'll find even the suggestion note "take a break and go to the toilet" .... :(
  12. Good topic folk, I just bought some on bricklink for my second 8856 cause 3 where broken.. and paid them a lot. Now i take really good care of them.
  13. Got the same problem about the site, i'm looking for the 8421scan...

    It's a new 8837 :D I likeit, no pf and the good old manual pump. Disappointed that it hasn't a normal bucket as many already said but we can change it.
  15. About the outriggers pneumatic hoses, where they go when outriggers are all in? Cause they must be long as the ouriggers move out...
  16. Amazing job, i just bought a second hand tumblernd i just want to add the steering front wheels, yours work really good. I wait the instructions or more detailed pics to make them, appreciated and again great job done by you!

    I like it, but maybe too much red, i would have putted for example some black..and back wheels fitted reverse to see the other side of the rim, single wheel or double in the back?
