  1. ISD Aggressor (Star Destroyer MOC w interior and instructions)

    I would really love that! Makes the project much more manageable and let me start sooner! So please give it a go!
  2. ISD Aggressor (Star Destroyer MOC w interior and instructions)

    This project is really growing on me, especially since Rebrickable told me that I already own 47% of the parts! Currently I am building the Apollo Rocket from LEGO Ideas and I noticed that 'inside' the model a lot of bright colored parts (yellow, green, blue, red) are used. Of course they become invisible once the model is finished. The Aggressor on the other side is all grayish, inside out. @legolijntjeWould it be possible to change in the BI the color of all 'hidden' parts to red meaning 'choose-whatever-color-you-have-laying-around'? I wonder how many parts that would affect. The model will become reachable for a lot more people (like me) if a few thousand parts can be used in every color you like! Also I think the BI will become less error prone when using multiple colors. May be that is the main reason LEGO does this as well? I understand that this means a lot of (extra) work for you. If I can be of any help, please let me know!

    Impressive work, congratulations! The solution to the huge partslist is simple: just buy three new Millenium Falcons in october and you are good to go!
  4. [MOC] Crane Truck

    Finally somebody notices it!
  5. [MOC] Crane Truck

    It was a real pleasure to test build this model! Lucio keeps pushing the limits with models over 8000 parts! The BI are spread over 14 (!) booklets, more than 500 pages in total. As usual with these big models the complexity is in all the wiring and pneumatic hoses. it is very important to test a lot 'along the way' before assemblies are 'closed' and wiring/hoses becomes difficult to reach. I built the crane in yellow and the cab in red. Looks like a SuperSized 8258!
  6. Show us your Working Place

    Is the girl included to help sorting?
  7. Show us your Working Place

    After years of building in the living room I finally have my own LEGO room in the basement! Actually it is more of a Man Cave where I combine my three main hobbies: LEGO, Pinball and Home Cinema. The place is 4,5 by 5,5 meters and for two third under the ground. It is always really cool and quiet. Gives me the option to relax from busy family life! I mainly build Technic and have all my pieces stored in large containers stacked below the pinball machines. Whenever I build a set or MOC from BI I sort all the pieces into IKEA cabinet trays. Pins and axles are placed in the cabinet drawers I am really happy with this workplace! And whenever I am tired of building I can put on a movie or play a game of pinball!

  8. Technic Color Palette

    Is there a comprehensive overview available of all 'technic colors' including coverage of parts? Rebrickable may be?
  9. [HELP] Looking for a MOC to Build

    Isn't that the whole idea of Rebrickable? 1. Go to www.rebrickable.com 2. Click on the Build menu 3. Click on the green button that says 'Find Sets you can build' It will show you all the sets and MOCs that you can build with your current parts. It will even show you how many parts you are missing and where to buy them. Enjoy!
  10. [GBC] The Akiyuki Project

    Thanks to Courbet I was able to expand my GBC collection with two modules this week! Tonight I arranged a small loop consisting of five modules.
  11. Build Your Own Plus Size AT-AT

    You could also easily compare the sets using Rebrickable: https://rebrickable.com/compare/MOC-6006/75054-1 75054 will give you about 27% of the parts...
  12. [GBC] The Akiyuki Project

    Thanks for checking! Do you have a complete partslist available already? Or am I just too impatient?
  13. [GBC] The Akiyuki Project

    Great work Courbet! I am really looking forward to build this module as well! Can you tell me if ball joint *without* pinhole can be used in this module? I just bought 40 red ones so it would be nice if they fit as well... ;-)
  14. [GBC] The Akiyuki Project

    May be you could use these ball joints as a substitute? http://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=32474&name=Technic Ball Joint&category=[Technic]#T=C I studied the video carefully and think they will fit as well. I think they are a little more common and also available in red.
  15. [MOC] 1:8 Scale Scorpion CK-R Supercar

    Really nice MOC, looks great to me! Makes me reconsider to buy the Porsche after all... Is it a one set MOC or do we need a lot of extra (orange) parts as well?
