    Grum's Shed

    Nice job Clive, (I mean Gilly😉). It looks great, and a lot tidier than when I last saw it.

    42115 - Lamborghini Sian FKP 37

    In my opinion, whether or not the gearbox matches a real gearbox is less of a concern and lets be honest, given that most gearboxes have many electronics these days it is almost impossible to replicate mechanically with Lego. Therefore, I think it is more important that the gearbox is conceptually interesting and perhaps looks to follow a few conceptual aspects of the car it is based on. Likewise with all of the other mechanisms. The key factors for me are how smoothly they work, how sturdy, and of course whether they follow the design concepts of the real car, and finally how they are operated. The real challenging part of the design in my experience is the body, and from the pictures it seems to me that they have nailed it this time in most aspects.

    42115 - Lamborghini Sian FKP 37

    I really like the look of this. I think that Lego have managed to get the right balance between replicating the shape of the real car, while achieving a technic model that also looks good.
  4. Brilliant MOC. It looks great and has some really nice functions. I am impressed.
  5. Well, I have just logged into EB for the first time in a few weeks, so it was nice to see this MOC gracing the Technic Forum. Nice work, and I like the chassis as well.
  6. This is a really great model at this scale. I really like it.
  7. It is quite clear these are not Lego branded parts, but many companies are now releasing people's MOCs. Some with permission but most without permission in my experience. Not so much a scam to the end buyer as it is fairly clear what you are buying.

    7 : 1 Gear Ratio without a 28 tooth gear?

    For me one of the most interesting parts of designing a supercar is developing the gearbox. Then comes the different challenge of designing the car that looks good around it.

    Don't worry Brunojj1. Your P1 beats the Chiron by a long way in my opinion. Lego have a bit to do before they release a set as nice as that!! But I am looking forward to this Lamborghini. Who knows what colour they will choose.
  10. I have to say that I absolutely disagree with this statement. In my view it is a massive positive that you have managed to make such a nice looking car at this smaller scale, and it probably also means less weight so more fun since it is powered by PF. It is almost a completely different game building at the Chiron scale, and I don't think it is really fair for someone to say which scale you should or should not build in.

    Help Needed Please

    I agree with the above. But you can be excused for not knowing as it is rare to see this part without the turntable bottom -unless you have one of those little kids who specialises in taking Lego apart, you know, the type of little kid who pulls the arms and legs of minifigs and leaves them scattered about their bedroom!!😉😉😉

    [MOC] Iveco Skip Loader

    I like it a lot. It looks great and functions nicely.
  13. I have to say I completely agree with Jeroen's comments above. It is a great looking truck and the stickers work well and compliment the design (coming from someone who never puts stickers on). Good photography as well.

    [WIP] Koenigsegg Jesko

    Good choice. I have been tempted to try to build the Jesko but at smaller scale. It is difficult to replicate that gearbox with the Lego gears available, and to make it operate at lightspeed using pneumatics. Interested to see your solution.
  15. I love it. It looks good from every angle in your pictures which in my opinion is hard to achieve. Interesting as well as built in a different scale to most other Supercar mocs that I have seen over the years. You may start a new trend.
