  1. Very nice. 42144 has a lot of potential. Pretty much like a universal kit.
  2. Hopefully next time it won't be a bad surprise.

    UCS Desert Skiff

    Hello !! The instructions for the UCS Desert Skiff are finally available ! Frousmoul did it like he did before. And so, the instruction comes with modular build, detailed steps, inventory and UCS sticker. A few more pics : As always, we ask a symbolic price - 10€ - for these instructions. However, if you want to give more to encourage our work, you are welcome. :) You can reach me by PM on EB, but also on Youtube, FlickR or Rebrickable (I also uploaded the MOC there). Or even better and simpler : email me directly at If you reproduce the model, do not hesitate to share some pictures. :) Anio
  4. I can barely see if there are any Lego parts under all those stickers.
  5. Thanks. It was one month ago. Here is the link for those who want to have a look. @Jim Are you sure ? I mean, postponing a flaship is quite a big move for the Technic line.

    Custom UCS Stickers

    I'm a bit into UCS. Three things come to my mind with your stickers : - make STAR WARS (and maybe the rest of the writing) a bit closer to the upper edge - clean the reflection on the windscreen to make the model look more sharp - print on a glossy paper
  7. My review of Lars Family Homestead Kitchen #40531 :
  8. I don't care much about what car they pick. I just hope that we won't get a 3rd model with the same transmission/gearbox than Chiron and Sian. I want something new.
  9. Ok, I get what you mean. The sticker causes the trouble. As I do not apply the stickers, the model just feels correct in my eye. I just consider the DNR lever to work the other way, and the ratios of the gearing are correct (except for reverse).
  10. I was feeling a bit lonely here... Finally someone who pointed out this very major flaw. Neutral is obviously between 1st and 2nd, like real bikes. And starting from neutral, 1st gear is when you push the lever down, like real bikes as well. Then twice up to get 2nd gear, then once up to finally get 3rd gear. But ratios are wrong. Not to mention that on my model 3rd gear tends to crack if I drive the bike just a bit too fast. All in all, this bike is the new Porsche 42056, but with 2 wheels only. :-/ edit : previous setS ? I can only think of 42056 that got the ratios wrong.

    Issue with UCS AT-AT!!!

    I saw it when I built the model but didn't mention it in my review as I considered it was kinda irrelevant for most Lego fans. I will report it to TLG though. Doubt they will update the product, but well, we never know...
  12. You missed my point. A design that is so "optimised" that it would have weak poinst would just not be optimised.
  13. It is correct. I see that modularity is being discussed a lot with supercars in mind. But it can be achieved in virtually all kind of vehicle. I generally tend to disagree with the statement that modularity adds parts and make the build more dense. I actually think the opposite. When properly achieved, the modularity streamlines the working and the engineering in the model. Cause you can't make nice modularity if your modules are a mess. I may sound like a broken record, but I think that modularity is one of the aspect of simplexity. Simplexity is sometimes mindblowing. Sometimes, a few liftarms can achieve beautiful results (doors of Lambo Sian 42115 for example). I think it is fascinating how a complex thing can be achieved with so little because the builder found the perfect part adjustement and removed everything that was superfluous. Sometimes, I am litterally out of words when I have that perfect engineering feeling. Recently, I built the Elf Club House 10275. I just couldn't believe how the designer deconstructed the various steps of the wafles dispenser mechanism with just some boring tiles... Antoine de Saint Exupery said : "Perfection is achieved not when there is nothing to add, but when there is nothing left to take away".
