  1. When I log in now and click for new content the "condensed/expanded" toggle no longer works. It seems like this may be a problem for for a number of forums using Invision software since Jan 1st 2020. Does anyone know if a patch is in the pipeline as I have very weak scrolling fingers Android OS 9 Samsung internet browser ver 9.4.00.45
  2. I've reached a bit of an impasse with my latest MOC. I want to use a virtual pivot steering system to keep the wheels tight in the arches. The arrangement in the pic gives me the hub movement I want but I'm struggling to connect it to the PF servo output. I think I need a lot less movement than the 90° each way the servo gives. I've tried different ideas and always run into problems, the hubs pointing slightly to one side due to gear teeth not meshing or lots of slack. This is supposed to end up a pendular axle under a fake engine so it cant be too tall i.e. servo pointed down toward red 2l Can anyone see a way to succeed where I have so far failed? I really want to get off the chassis and start the cab! Any and all suggestions gratefully received

    How to start?!?

    Welcome (back) to Eurobricks Alessandro I'd start by finding some space in your house, more than you think. You'll need it for displaying models if that's what you want or storing parts if you prefer building and rebuilding. Good light and a comfy seat are important. I see you like classic space so maybe a next step would be buying some of the sets you remember as a kid if budget allows. I think nostalgia plays a part for most AFOLs. If the budget is tighter consider digital building. LDD is simple to use but probably dying so jump straight in with Stud.io or similar. Lots of people post great digital only builds on here. Then have a think about what appeals. Do you want a big town (or moonbase) on display? City sets and modulars to start. Is it the actual building process you enjoy? Read reviews for sets with interesting build techniques. What to create your own models? Get all your bricks together and see what you can make! At some point you will want extra bricks. Bricklink is loved by most and not broken yet but there are other sources too, TLG, Ebay, second hand etc. Just enjoy it! I find it a great way to unwind even if I'm tearing down half a Technic MOC just to change a 5L beam to a 7L And finally, more room than you think

    Greek National Highway Road

    An interesting choice of subject. Not being familiar with Greek roads is the orange box a speed camera or an emergency phone? (useful for the guy in the VW camper ) I feel sorry for the driver of that tiny red car surrounded by all those huge trucks.

    Help with identifying parts/sets!

    It's a minifig accessory with a peg on the back for the hands. I think I had some in a Prince of Persia set, 7569 Desert Attack?

    [MOC] Portal companion cube

    Wasn't the actual cube always pink? I've merely dabbled in the Portal universe so maybe I missed coloured ones.

    [MOC] Kenworth W900

    So many great building techniques in such a small chassis, nice work Where does the PF IR receiver for the cab sit? Your solution of using rubber bumpers as suspension has inspired me to revisit one of my own stalled MOCs with a narrow rear axle, thank you.

    Sorted by color finally finished!

    Ah, the age old dilemma of how to sort bricks. I mainly build Technic so for me part function is more important than colour but I can imagine that for modulars, big landscapes and greebling it could be better to have colours. Whichever way you sorted 600,000 (!) bricks I would imagine you need to sub divide by type. 60 separate colours is still 10,000 bricks in each bin to hunt through. @GeorgeMendes Do you have pics? I get a strange sense of rightness from nicely sorted Lego

    What is this tube piece???

    As @Rustinidiel says the thicker one is this Pneumatic hose cut to length The thinner is something like This rigid hose So yes they are Lego pieces. The shape probably comes from a stiff wire through the middle or heating and bending.

    need help for car crusher

    When I think of car crushing I immediately think of the baler type. How about mini LAs to activate it?
  11. Perhaps it was this exact deal posted in March 2017 that bankrupted them? Curse all of you for buying Lego at less than full RRP (and sometimes more than RRP from my memories of TRU)

    Technic General Discussion

    Does anyone remember seeing a brick built technic figure? IIRC it was in a construction vehicle type thread so the fig had a hard hat. Probably posted in the last 12 months. I've tried searching but it's either too vague or too specific. Any help gratefully received

    Space efficient storage of train tracks

    But if you used the bigger box and the stacking method you could get even more track!

    [WIP] Lamborghini Aventador SV

    Much improved At this scale I think a small sacrifice in accuracy can be traded for a better overall "feel" and this model now captures the sleekness of the original. As a long time fan of Lamborghinis this is one of the first Lego supercars I've wanted to build myself, are there any super rare or expensive parts?

    But aren't the tyre tracks 2 blazers wide?
