    Yellowed Stickers

    I'd be curious to know if anyone does have a non-destructive way to handle with with that older style of paper (well, non-vinyl) sticker. You best bet might be to recreate them altogether and build a new copy with new stickers for display if you want to keep these originals in-tact (which I would), and perhaps even display them side-by-side.
  2. Give the target market I wouldn't be surprised if it's not easily replaceable, but I am surprised it's not available for purchase. Since it was such a low-production part in the first place "sold out" on Bricks and Pieces/Replacement Parts means gone forever, and with none on Bricklink it might be best to try cracking it open and replacing it yourself (and document online for others ) or purchase one on eBay ($25-50).

    [MOC] 1966 Classic Batmobile

    Wow, I wasn't expecting to see so much Technic in it - nice job! Something else might work better for the wind screens (especially from the rear view) but that's a minor nitpick. I especially like the light/siren as the HOG steering control.
  4. Looks great, and the lighting is especially nice. You might want to think about using a scarf/bandana piece for the ribbon instead of the sausage, but that works.
  5. As 1963maniac said, there's not enough info just based on parts count and color to give a realistic range. What software did you use to design them? Most have a parts list export function of some sort that can make adding to your Wanted list on Bricklink pretty quick, and then that'll give you your answer if you follow the steps she outlined above.

    [AoM: House - Phase I] The Valley

    "Mudded" is a word, and works fine here. So just the "it's" that should be "its" and all is well. But minor grammatical quibbles aside, I did take time to read the whole thing and it's a lot of fun. I would say the drama runs a little long for the overall gag, but I think that was at least partially what you were going for, and it's enjoyable and the builds and photos work very well throughout. Keep up the great builds and fun prose!

    [AoM: House - Phase I] The Valley

    I also had to skim the story due to time at the moment, but it looks like it's a great read. The cliff and lighting is nice, that farmhouse is excellent, and the build with the river & waterfall for the "monster" rescue is wonderful as well. Great job all-around!

    Franziska says "Hi"

    Welcome to EB, Franziska! That sounds like a wonderful way to transition out of your dark ages; what a thoughtful gift. Nice to have you and your large brick family here with us. Happy building!

    [MOC][LEGO Ideas] The Modular Knight's Castle

    Personally I like the more detailed and elaborate design from Kalkwarf, but there is definitely some Classic Castle nostalgia with yours (and just a bit of more modern touches for good measure). The modular expandability of the Classic Castle sets was always one of my favorite things from the theme. It would be fun to see some of those classic sets put together with your modern interpretation here.

    Would like help with a buwizz test

    Hi Aerolight - sounds like a fun project! I can't comment on the specific thrust, but something else you need to keep in mind is range. With a drone or helicopter it doesn't matter quite as much, but for a plane moving quickly enough to generate the necessary lift (assuming you're not building a huge & very slow powered glider design) you could quickly get outside the 30 meter/100 foot range of the bluetooth for the Buwizz.

    Elsie Babble

    Cute. I like the medallion, and those eyes are great. Also NPU with the ruffled sleeve cuffs.

    [MOC][LEGO Ideas] The Modular Knight's Castle

    This looks awfully similar to @Micheal Kalkwarf's work. https://www.brothers-brick.com/2017/01/13/castle-not-just-castle-modular-system-creating-lego-castles/ https://ideas.lego.com/projects/b967bda0-d0be-4d3f-9f47-9b0c2ebcca26
  14. Glad it worked! Yeah, I didn't dig deeper into it at the time, but if you've ever looked at a raw LDD file it's basically XML markup, and I think that over time if you make a lot of changes - especially with sub-assemblies - some of the "formatting" tags don't always get cleaned up and while the file can still technically be parsed properly it becomes bloated and slow to process. Maybe with Lego's purchase of Bricklink we'll see some of the better features of LDD make their way into Stud.io? *fingers crossed*
