  1. I have built the Cobra a few months ago, and it's an excellent MOC. It's so well designed it feels like it's not even an alternate model, and the instructions are impeccable. The only downside with this creation is that it makes me want to buy a second 10265 so I can have the Mustang and the Cobra built at the same time.

    What if this is a flying vehicle ? A plane or a helicopter, with the Osprey rotor blades ?

    Yes it is ! Thank you. I like to polish my building instructions, and in this case I decided to give them a square format in case someone (or even just I) would want to print them and put them in the yellow box of recent GWPs like the teal brick, to make as if it were a real set.

    On smaller parts, it takes only a few minutes to completely remove a print, and I guess it shouldn't take much longer here. I've already used this technique myself a few times (on minifig torsos, a Nexo Knights shield, and on a CCBS torso, for example). What's important is to use a good eraser (mine is a Staedtler Mars Plastic) so you won't have to spend hours on it and the result will be cleaner.

    Oh thank you so much koalayummies, I really appreciate. I don't mind if you set it to public, just tag me in.
  6. I've built mine on Thursday, and did consider doing the same steering wheel mod as you @Jurss. My concern was that it would leave a big gap below the front of the windshield. Also, don't the bush and liftarms thin 1x2 you've added to the rear (behind the diff) push against the liftarms thin 1x6 when you fold the rear (step 75) ?

    A good eraser should easily do the trick. You have to keep in mind that the people at Lego work with constraints whose importance overcomes that of the functions. They have to make sure the model can be built by the target audience (which includes ease of building and safety constraints), they have to make sure the cost of the parts fits within a certain budget (and perhaps including a differential was possible but required to many parts and thus was too expensive), in the case of licensed sets they have to meet certain requirements asked by the IP holder (and I think here if the rear axle and engine are inclined it's because McLaren wanted it, I haven't built the set yet but right now I can't think of a reason why Lego would want to do that)... It's easy to fit an entire drivetrain and realistic suspension system into the compact chassis of the Wrangler when you do it for yourself and you don't have to care about all of that.
  8. I doubt it's going to be a movie car this time - Mike Psiaki said in a recent interview for Brickset that "10262 James Bond Aston Martin DB5 was well-received so there is evident interest in movie vehicles. We do want to maintain focus upon real vehicles as well though, hence leaving a gap between the 2018 model and 10274 ECTO-1." Also, the rumoured price suggests a parts count between 1600 and 1800 pieces, so maybe it's going to be something bigger than the Mustang (possibly a truck ?), or a smaller car but at a bigger scale (like the Ford Model T or Citroën 2CV suggested previously).

    Thanks for the review @kbalage. This set seems to be a fun build - at least if you don't apply the stickers. It's a bit of a shame there's no differential, but I guess the Lego designers would have found a way to add one if it were possible to do it without sacrificing the structural integrity and keep the model buildable for 10-year-olds.

    Thanks everyone. Oh I'm certainly not the kind of guy who'd think of selling whatever I can. Now I have nothing against people who sell instructions, and I may do it myself for bigger models, but it's something I want to avoid as much as I can. And, speaking of mods, I've done a little one myself : I raised the fender skirts by a half-plate, so they're now aligned with the rest of the bodywork, and the wheels are a bit more visible now. (The "upgraded" version is on the right) Instructions have been updated. Here's the list of parts that were added to the first version of the model, for people who have already built it and wish to do the modification.

    10283 Space Set????

    July 2021 marks the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 15 mission, which was the first to use a moon rover. While a Space Shuttle is much more likely, especially with that rumoured price, a Lego version of the Lunar Roving Vehicle could still be a possibility. EDIT : It's certainly even less likely than the LRV theory, but it would be awesome if it were a Classic Space hommage set, like maybe a base and a spaceship and a couple small vehicles.

    Oh, thank you all for your kind words. Hehe but that would have immediately given away the nature of the next modular. And since the subject was rather broad that allowed for a nice range of entries. And because of that variety I must admit at first I was a bit annoyed and frustrated that my entries lost to a car that was so similar to the car found in DD, but the winner grew on me and now I look forward to get the actual set. Plus I can't say no to a teal car. And, think of it that way : with 40448 and my police car, people will have the opportunity to display a car chase in their Modular Street. Thank you ! It's a bit off topic here but I'm really proud of the spinner and I hope you'll enjoy the build. I have ideas for a second one, but I dont know when I'll build it.

    [MOC] Vintage Police Car

    Since the upcoming Modular Police Station won't come with a car, I've decided to build one myself : It's inspired by 40's American Police cars, and I did my best to make it look like the official sets so it won't look out of place in a Modular Street. The doors can open, and the roof and rear windscreen can be easily removed to access the interior, where there's room for two minifigs. Ideally it would be a police officer and the terrible Donut Thief buf of course I don't have them yet, so I used the minifigs from 40409 Hot Rod instead. Speaking of which, here's a comparison shot between the two cars : Instructions for this model can be found on Rebrickable : https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-59900/Leewan/vintage-police-car/ If you want to try different colour schemes, modify the model (to turn it into a civilian version for example), or simply see it under every possible angle, you can check the 3D model on Mecabricks : https://www.mecabricks.com/en/models/Jk2Ex0qPa9A PS : Oh, I almost forgot something, shame on me. I wanted to say a big thank you to @_shaddow_ for his help.

    [RUMORS] Flagship - CAT D11T

    What about Bright Light Orange like 42099 ? Personally I'd love that. Anyways, I'm looking forward to see these sets. Given their rumoured price range, they should be huge. Hopefully they'll be worth it functions-wise...
