  1. 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, 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:

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

    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...

    42115 - Lamborghini Sian FKP 37

    Just got to the last few episodes, and he does feel genuinely impressed and excited about the set. It looks like the technical side of the set can still surprise even technically savvy people outisde the AFOL bubble

    42115 - Lamborghini Sian FKP 37

    There really is, and I appreciate how they almost make you feel like a member of a Lamborghini owners club by sharing all the cool insights and comments directly from Lamborghini engineers and designers. But the most unintentionally funny one is Episode 7 in which the Lamborghini chief manufacturing officer explains how important properly painting the car is, with all of the different parts made of all the different materials having a consistent color. Awkward

    [WIP] McLaren MP4-12C Spider

    Did a quick render in with Porsche wheels (same size), they seem to fit in the wheel arches: The arch is 2 studs narrower than 24118, so depending on the steering geometry the wheels may or may not scrape. It is a tighter and more realistic fit, in my opinion.

    42115 - Lamborghini Sian FKP 37

    I have to say, when you see it in videos from different angles and moved around, it does look quite beautiful. The side view with the rear lights is, IMO, close enough to the real thing. The side vent is not perfect, and the side window line does not curve up, but it is still a recognizable and impressive look. And I think lime green suits the Lambo.

    Well, it's called Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 after all. Sorry, couldn't help it

    Help with identifying parts/sets!

    There's 32124, but you probably mean something larger than 1x5.
