    Thank you Milan.....

    MOCs to Move

    Hello all, I've not been here for a while, busy with other things, however... Should my scale model Magnum go in here? I apologise, I don't know how to move topics.....
  3. Really good MOC... Very realistic... If you don't open the bonnet. How long did it take you to build it?

    Honda CB400-4 MOC

    You're welcome.....
  5. Bigger rugged tyres, longer stronger LA's, big shockers (say 8 long x 2 wide, a bit like 48912), perhaps longer stronger beams, some heavy duty gear wheels,..... dual or triple channel receiver with 6 outputs, high capacity rechargeable LiPo (half the size and twice the power of 59510),..... What's not to like? (Other than costing about 500 Euros)
  6. Eric Leppen: Clearly you missed the syntax, this was a direct answer to 1974 who wrote: I do not agree with you that it would not be interesting. That is your opinion, clearly, not everyone thinks alike.
  7. On one hand, I really like sets that just have all that is needed for the functions yet are very realistic, e.g. 8294 excavator; cheap, and you get the parts to re-use in MOC's. However, On the other hand, I agree entirely with 'The Ghost Racer', A dumper in this scale would be superb..... Surely, these would be the wheels that all you 4x4 off-roader MOCers dream of at night, with 170mm tyres. 1974: Surely, electric drive at each wheel is eminently 'doable' with technic parts, indeed, I can't think of anything more suited to PF.

    Really good MOC... I can't see if you used this part, 2904.... (If not, maybe you could.)

    Custom parts

    Error 404: The two 1x1 parts I made from this did not exist.... You were correct about the other 'cutting up' that I said did not count, rather than wait for bricklink I cut something I had plenty of into two of something I needed that day and did not have. TwentyLeggedHen: It was for kingpins in my Magnums steering. Boxerlego: I agree with your comment about cost, I also do not see any problem in modifying simple parts to fit a need, like 3L thin liftarms. The Ghost Racer: Thank you, I am happy that my opinion is agreed with.

    DLuders; thank you.... By the way, I agree entirely with your earlier post in this thread.

    Custom parts

    Since we have chosen to work with lego, concessions must be made. It is not possible to work in any exact scale because you must round up or down to the nearest stud, similarly, it is not possible for TLG to make new convincing representations of particular machines without inventing new parts. If then you want to build something that TLG does not yet make it is possible that you will require something that does not yet exist. There are some things that TLG simply do not make that in my opinion can not be omitted from a model, consequently, I make and include them. Windscreens, mirror glass, stickers, etc. These are vital for realism and are enhancements to the lego, complementary parts even. I have cut one of these to make two of these, but I expect that this does not count as a modification. I have also cut this in half to make this footstep, because that is the only way when scale dictates that 3l is required. I agree with Nazgarot; 'I don't care if others like it or not', Sometimes I see posts on this forum that make me smile, from some who aspire to take the moral high ground, describing themselves as 'purists' ..... It (to them) is a terrible 'sin' if someone makes an 'illegal' part.... But, it is wonderful if TLG makes the same part because it is vital for looks or function.
  12. Yes it's down here... Images missing from posts, links leading to error... Is there not anyone, moderators or whatever, from brickshelf who is also a member here that can let us know what is going on?

    [WIP] 6x6 Articulated Truck

    I'm sorry, I gave you the wrong link first time... this is the one it should have been: 6x6 artic I think you might find something that you do have the parts for.... (Of course, your idea is the what you should pursue... I am not trying to interfere.)

    [WIP] 6x6 Articulated Truck

    This is very impressive, I like it.... If you are stuck for inspiration for a body, look here, there are lots of ideas... (There is every wheel arrangement at this site)
