  1. Sure. But that was not my point.
  2. Those rims covers are initially Ferrari licensed parts. Sure they got used once on a Technic helicopter. But for obvious reasons, using them on a Porsche set is a different story that could not happen. For example, I have been told by someone from TLG who worked with Porsche that TLG is not entitled to use 42056 rims in any other set than 42056. Indeed, car rims are a key element of design, and manufacturers don't want their design (which, in some way, reflects their brand) to be used by any other third parties.
  3. Finally someone to point out that this reproduction of the marriage on the Lego model is trully overated and pointless. Regarding the suspensions, they may work better than 42083 (could they work worse ? O_o), but I think the way you built them is inacurate.

    TIE Phantom

    Very nice model indeed. Clever build on the core of the ship and the upper wings with studs out on both sides.

    UCS Jedi Interceptor

    Hi ! I did the dark green Jedi Interceptor of Anakin Skywalker from Episode III. Very similar to the yellow and dark green versions I made some time ago.

  7. Note that "UCS scale" rather means "UCS size". UCS is not a matter of scale (didn't I already say that like thousand times ?)

    42093 Corvette ZR-1

    No. I have been working on Lego models with car manufacturer. Trust me, they are very nitpicky when it comes to aesthetics. They often do totally unreasonnable requests. Sometimes focusing on stupid details. They also want their model to have as many features as possible, but they are less demanding on features that they are on aesthetics. And they absolutely do not care about stability of the model : that is TLG's problem. My point is that the functions mentionned above may either result in a not very good looking Corvette, or make little sense regarding the spirit of the model. Suspension with 0,5-1cm travel : it makes no sense for a race car that size. This car is made for race track, not rally. 2 speed gearbox ? Kinda ridiculous for one of the most famous US race car. As for open doors, I am sure they wanted the model to have it (as they did the interior), but couldn't find a proper way to do it because of the Lego panels and the look of Corvette the model has to have.

    Not sure a 2 speed gearbox would be appropriate for such a car. As for suspension, it is generally a rough terrain vehicle thing when it comes to small sets. Openable doors and bonnet would be in order for a model of that size. But I am pretty sure it would compromise a lot on how the model looks. I certainely agree with you that 2 functions is rather few for a model of that size. But none of the features we generally have on models of that piece count are suitable here IMO. The main reason is probably the Corvette license. It prevents the designers to add some of the classic functions you mentionned so as to focus on the look of the car.

    42096 Porsche 911 RSR

    Probably a mix of age limit + budget restriction. I agree, though. It kinda sucks.

    The picture on the sticker kinda reminds me another UCS Royal Naboo Starship.

    Much sleeker design. Well done ! But you really have to go with 86500pb04 R2 piece.

    Is that so ? Then TLG's motto is not was it used to be.
