    [TC19] Kickboxer Diesel (Finished)

    It looks like a https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=47458#T=C
  2. This is a great MOC, and I would definitely not call it a "failed" submission – it just did not happen to win I really like the height adjustment feature and how neatly it is integrated – normally, something like that would mean compromising the looks, but here it is obvously not the case. As a matter of fact, this was on my personal short list during the first stage of the vote. Thank you for sharing the updated version!

    [LDD MOCs] imvanya's City vehicles

    I started the year by building a new Modular, and as usual, this got me to come back to LEGO in general. Long story short, I finally finished a redux of another older MOC of mine – a school bus. The design should be more streamlined now, though the look ended up somewhat rectangular. In any case, it is now more reasonably sized, and at the same time I managed to cram a brick-built V engine and a removable engine cover. It has seats for 12 passengers plus the driver, the roof is also removable. Bright Light Orange/Flame Yellowish Orange is perfect for a school bus, but is not too common, so I tried to make sure the pieces I used are available in this color. The .io file is available at my Bricksafe here, the model is also available at Mecabricks here. You can get PDF instructions at my Bricksafe here. Please note that a few of the new pieces have not yet made into Stud.io (66956 and 71752), so lime green placeholders are used in the instructions.

    What Comes after the Saturn V build?

    Hi, 'kylenpillay'. Welcome to Eurobricks! Have you considered the Creator Expert sets? The sets are normally quite considerable in size and feature some advanced building techniques, which makes them quite satisfying to build. Depending on your interests, you could go for vehicles or buildings. Alternatively, you could just go by size. For instance, you can check Brickset for a list of sets with most pieces. Anyway, hope you find this helpful!

    [MOC] Aedelsten oldschool

    Brickset already has a picture of the set, though a rather pixelated one at the moment. Overall, it looks pretty similar to the original MOC, but the rocker panels are gone – probably, to simplify the build and make the price more reasonable. Also gone are the decorations – zip line handles, binoculars and swirls. But it's turquoise (including the wheelarches) and the signature surfboards are there, in other words – it still looks great and very 50s, so a perfect match for a Modular layout.

    10278 Police Station

    Is this a new part or have I missed it in a released set? Looks like a half of an inverted 1x6 arch: https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=92950
  8. Maybe, something like this would work: It seems to fit, you get the double gears, and it is kind of braced.

    [LDD MOCs] imvanya's City vehicles

    It's been a while now that I haven't built a new MOC. However, I've been making instructions for my existing MOCs (they can be found at my Bricksafe), and it is actually quite a lot of fun. And one thing you end up doing is optimizing, updating, improving and otherwise modding your MOCs. Long story short, the latest MOC to get this treatment was the cargo truck I built 7 years ago now. Revisiting it now, with many new parts available and some new building tricks learnt, I decided to change a few things. First of all, I shortened the flatbed and made a brick-built canvas cover. Secondly, I redid the front section in a more common Bright blue color and just overall streamlined the design. Basically, this time around I wanted to make sure that you could build it IRL if you really wanted to. Anyway, here is what it looks now: The .io file is available at my Bricksafe here, the model is also available at Mecabricks here. You can get PDF instructions at my Bricksafe here.

    Great job! I love the door handle, haven't seen this technique before.

    [LDD MOCs] imvanya's sports cars

    Since I got a hang of creating instructions in Stud.io, I thought that while I am in between MOCs I could create a couple of instructions. There is an index of all cars I built in the first post, so if you would like to have instructions for any one of them made, let me now. I have already done instructions for the last two (Slingshot and Meteora), they are available on my Bricksafe. Also, @supertruper1988 kindly created and shared instructions for a few more:

    [LDD MOCs] imvanya's sports cars

    I uploaded a Stud.io file and instructions to my Bricksafe. I will update the files once 36451a and 65633pb01 are available in Stud.io.

    LEGO Speed Champions 2020 - Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion

    I still wonder about the rear, specifically why they decided to leave an exposed stud. They could have something less obvious to support the angle of the rear lights. I think I've posted a few ideas here:

    [LDD MOCs] imvanya's sports cars

    Haven't been feeling like building lately, but yesterday I just opened Mecabricks and went for it. Spent the whole evening and a good chunk of the morning with this one. Overall, I am happy with how it came out, I also got to use the idea I had for the rear lights built with 32828 and Trans-Red 36451a. There are a few upside-down assemblies that look good, but may or may not work IRL, and I am not entirely happy with the front. The model is available on Mecabricks. All parts are available in the colors I used, though I did not check if there were any rare ones. UPD: Browsed some of the LEGO car groups on Flickr and got enough inspiration to rework the front for a more supercar look. I think it suits it much better. UPD2: Decided to add a render of the rear with a clearer view of the rear lights:

    42115 - Lamborghini Sian FKP 37

    Going back to the videocasts, in Episode 5 Jeppe Juul Jensen says something along these lines: LEGO Technic is the ultimate open-source, so you can rebuild any part of the car in any color you have at home. Some day...
