  1. Hello Everybody, I started since long with an ambitious MOC, a mobile port crane. I'll try to make it to a finished product, parts and motivation permiting. I'm not so good at inventing new models from scratch and design them well. but here goes... It will be sort of a combination between to models, one frome Liebherr and the other from Kone cranes. My model has 8 sets of 2 wheels, all of them are steered and 2 sets of wheels are driven by an XL-motor. The Steering mechanism is driven by an L-motor. The outriggers are also driven by 2 L-motors. In the above picture, the 4 centre bogies were driven, but I already changed the design, so only 2 are driven now, and the drive itself has been changed also. The centre outrigger mechanism and the outriggers are based on the design of IVAN MOCS concrete pump. Here two outriggers are completely finished, I'm waiting for spare parts to finish the other 2 outriggers. in this foto I already put the slewing arrangement based on the one from the 42082 RTC.
  2. I present to you my Quadtrac. I am very conscious that others have been doing similar work. The main focus was to develop a self tensioning track which would mimic the features of the quadtrac units. Unfortunately my wheel limitations only permitted me to have two sets of middle rollers per track, a feature which some on you will spot. There was space for an air tank under the bonnet, but this was removed due to it not being needed. It has two speed drive, albeit a little slower than I would wish. The video should be self explanatory. I welcome your comments. Also can anybody help me to embed the video, thanks https://youtu.be/LDW_b8jSrtY
  3. Hello to the community. The last weeks, I had finally a bit more time for LEGO, so I started a new small digital project: (digital) modern redesign of the classic LEGO Set 4554 Central Station (also known as Metro Station) from the LEGO Trains Theme from 1991. These have been my first steps in the Lego Train Theme, maybe you like the result. ;-) Picture 1: 4554 Central Station Revisited Picture 2: 4554 Central Station Revisited I also created some building instructions for the train station. You can download them (PDF File, 125 pages, for free, no registration) under the below URL: https://bit.ly/revisited4554 Ok, this is now a bit offtopic, but may I ask you however, as a sort of recompensation, to vote for my LEGO Ideas Project Princess June's Castle and share my project idea in social media. You can vote for my project here: https://bit.ly/junescastle. I would really appreciate. Happy Building, stay safe and keep healthy. :-)
  4. Over a month of design and here it is: The Razor Crest from The Mandalorian Series! Currently I have finished the virtual version, I checked many connections on real bricks. Building this vehicle was one of the most difficult things I did. Mapping the shape required many non-standard connections and inventing more and more strange solutions. Razor currently contains 2040 parts, including a display stand and landing gears. I also built an interior, many things open up. This is not the final version yet, some details, such as the painting may change. The full announcement will be available in a few days on my YouTube - Edge of Bricks! What do you think about this project? :)
  5. Hi,I'm making a topic to combine my WIP stuff, any questions and worries while building stuff. I've been making B-C-models since I was 6th /now 31/, playing with ATCO bricks, as in Bulgaria LEGO was stupidly expensive. 20 years later I was given 42046 as a gift and here we are... I've got 18 MOCs on rebrickable now - you can see them HERE My Bricksafe hoarding place for renders and real-life shots is HERE Some of you may have already seen some of my work posted on the forum here /42106 Big Rig/. C models followed - a truck trailer from 42103 visible above, revised 42039's B model /below, both manual and RC/ and a whole bunch of stuff from 42101 and 42102 /also below/. 42101 alt-builds - up left - a mini-cyber-truck-thing, up-right - trial truck from mini-Claas and Buggy - two steered axles, some interior, lots of color barf. Down left - touring bike - front suspension, steering. Bottom right again Claas and Buggy Combo - Soviet Big Rig - opening doors, HoG steering, fifth wheel that accepts big trailers. Up left - plane out of 42101 - propeller spins, VERY SOLID and hard to take apart. Up right - a bit ugly ATV, has steering and rear solid axle, that's suspended. Does wheelies. Down left - helicopter - has inverted HoG to spin the propeller, rear one is manual too. Down right - Rat Rod - has Beam of God steering and a low stance. If you push it hard it'll even scrape the floor :D Below is a conversion of 42039's B model into two versions - RC and manual pickups, below are shown the main differences, the front is the same. The doors were moved a stud to the front for better proportions. The pickup cover uses the same mechanism as the original rear door opener. 42106 VW Camper - build log is below in the topic. It has pullback, wheelie bar, wheelie stand and a cute face. Same parts can build the 42098B funny car. It has a V6, by-passable pullback, /un/lockable steering and HoG on the roof. Modified it quite a bit as you can see. Corvette's Hot rod also made from 42106's parts - featuring V8, lockable steering, HoG in the back, by-passable pullback motor, removable roof, exhausts and supercharger. ================================ GTS is my old forum name and my nickname in Bulgarian is Kostq /pronounced Kost-ya/. So you don't get confused by the profiles.

    [MOC] Robotech/Mospeada Cyclone

    Hi All, My first post here, nice to meet everyone. I'm just sharing my recent MOC. Please check out my VR-052F Cyclone Ride-Armor from the Robotech/Mospeada 1980's classic animation. For those who are not familiar with the Cyclone, it was a type of armored motorcycle that a rider was able to transform into a wearable exo-suit for battle. It was one of the iconic vehicles in the Robotech/Mospeada series. It was really fun bringing this design to life in LEGO form!: Armor-Bike and Rider Mode Ride-Armor Mode This MOC is fully transformable between Armor-Bike and Ride-Armor modes. You can check out the transformation sequence here: LEGO VR-052F Cyclone Ride-Armor Transformation More higher quality images can be found on my Flickr: Daikoncat's Photostream If you really like this MOC, I would appreciate it very much if you help me reach my next goal of 1k supporters on LEGO Ideas. You can find my project page here: Lego Ideas Robotech/Mospeada Cyclone I am already aware of the licensing hurdles, but it still doesn't hurt for me to try. If you are interested in instructions, I am working on it Thanks for taking the time to check out my MOC -Daikoncat
  8. So I've been working on this on and off for the past 7 years. I wanted to have the Eta-2's to go along with my Delta-7B's. Initially my design was heavily based on Gunner's, which I had seen on this forum. The size was very close to minifig scale, and it served as a good starting point. However I ended up unsatisfied with my result. Four years later after having worked on my Ghost, I took another stab at it and started to make a bit more headway. I focused more and more on correcting my shaping and overall design. By the end of last year I had finalized a design that I was pretty happy with, the only drawback being the lack of 29119 & 29120 in yellow. Thankfully they came out with the introduction of the 76897 Audi. Earlier this month I took another look at my design, and while I did still like it, I felt it could use some final tweaks. And by simply changing the mandibles I found a new love for the design of this ship. So much so that I went ahead and updated my version for Ahsoka, and did up all the other versions from the movies. So here we go; My design progress. Anakin's Eta-2 from the Clone Wars, with s-foils open and closed. Some additional views. The cockpit interior and under the s-foils (showing the hole through the wing). The usual size comparison to my Delta-7B. Ahsoka's Eta-2 from the Clone Wars, with s-foils open and closed. Some additional views. And now the designs seen in Revenge of the Sith. Anakin's Yellow Eta-2. With a comparison to the new 2020 75281 Anakin's Jedi Interceptor. Anakin's Green Eta-2. Obi Wan's Red Eta-2. And finally Obi Wan's Blue Eta-2. As a final note, all of these are buildable except for Anakin's green Eta-2 (There are several pieces unavailable in Dark Green and some in Dark Bluish Grey). I have Ahsoka's test built in mostly the correct colours, I've placed a Bricklink order to get the pieces I need to finish both hers and Anakin's CW Eta-2. Once I have them completed I'll take some photos and add them here. As always, enjoy.
  9. Hello all! This is my first attempt at a UCS style MOC. I've been wanting to redo all my playset Star Wars sets, so I decided to start with the TIE Fighter, and I am really happy with the results. If you want to get the instructions, I posted them on ReBrickable for download. Here is the model from the front and back: And here it is with my other UCS sets: For those who are interested, here is some of the earlier versions of the model. First, this is what I dubbed the fat TIE. Then, the wings got slimmed down. At this point they were still plates instead of bricks. This was the last iteration before I built the physical model. It looks a lot like the final version, but it could not support its own weight, so the cockpit and arms were completely changed.

    MOC: Minifig rescue helicopter

    Hi fellow builders My third MOC here on Eurobricks is a minifig scaled model of the brand new SAR helicopter in Norway. The Leonardo AW 101 is a magnificent machine! I start off with some important information. I built this MOC based on a model i found on Lego Ideas. The creator SimonSchepp published six pictures of his grey army version of this helicopter, and I used these with the intention of making a similar model. The result is a helicopter that looks similar, but is probably built very differently. With only six pictures available It was really difficult to figure out how to build this thing. But I think it turnes out nice, and I learned a lot along the way. Hope you like it. Minifigs deserve only the best, and the AW 101 is state of the art. You can hoist the patients in to the helicopter. The crew has lots of medical equipment available for treating patients. The helicopter flies fast and safe in all kinds of weather conditions. Fully decorated cabin, similar to the layout in the real helicopter. Size does matter, and this thing is big. Fully decorated cockpit, with collective and cyclic. I know there should to room for 2 pilots. But to maintain playability, I could only fit in one seat. The godfather of helicopters, Igor Sikorsky, deserves som credit. Any comment or questions is much appreciated. Thank you for your time. Keep building :-)
  11. Hey everybody, I'm new to the community but I've been MOC designing for sometime now and I have finished my massive project. I've been working on it for just under two years, The ISD II The Eviscerator. It sits on a single removable stand measuring at 148 studs long with 19,225 pieces. I really wanted to capture that "It doesn't look like Lego" feel and try to give it a studio model vibe. One of my goals for this build was to have only one stand that the model sits on securely. This was an incredible challenge due to the size and weight of the model. In fact, it's what took the most time to develop through out the build. Overall, I'm satisfied with how the model turned out. This is more accurately representing an ISD II Destroyer. I tried to pay attention to every detail I could, based on a couple of star destroyer sources. It's a very modular build making it easier to assemble and disassemble. There is no interior in this model. Just pure structural integrity throughout the entire inside. Just the frame and stand are 6,000+ pieces, but this was my goal. Create as accurate of model as I could, displayed on one removable stand, and not having to limit detail because of weight and size. Anyways, enough rambling: You can view the rest of the photos here: Flickr Album Now here is some great news. If you want to build one yourself, you can! I have made instructions for this build that are available at https://www.brickvault.toys/products/imperial-star-destroyer

    MOC Coral reef

    The inspiration for this little MOC came from the bright light yellow brick (47115). The odd-shaped brick reminded me of the old baseplates which were 1 brick thick, and I thought of it as a base for something. Since I was taking apart my previous coral reef inspired MOC, I started imagining this bright light yellow brick as a sand-based sea bottom full of underwater life. Considering the fact that many coral reefs are at risk due to water pollution and that coral reefs are considered as underwater rainforest, I tried to include versatile underwater plants and animals, contrasting in color, shape and size. The fact that TLG made new animal moulds this year was also super helpful. All-in-all, parts used in this creation were made by TLG as early as 1995, so basically, this MOC is a mix of old and new. To conclude, at least in my opinion, life is much nicer in color.
  16. Hi there everybody, since some of you asked for more WIP topics in the "Decreasing number of MOCs" topic, I thought I would take you along with my latest project, hopefully from start to finish. I wanted to build a drift car, and what other car ycould that be than the Nissan Silvia? deciding between S13, S14 and S15 was pretty easy, since pop up headlights are awesome. So I went for the most suitable model, the 180SX Type X. A quick search on google brought up this Blueprint. Not perfect, but good enough. Since this is a car with the classic FR layout I took the 6-speed manual transmission from my Nissan R32 GTR MOC and removed the AWD. I'ts running very smooth. After the pop-up headlights were completed I started modelling the front bumper. This bumper is really difficult, all the proportions are hard to recreate from bricks. I tried it like this, and while it is pretty accurate these stacked plates dont look very nice. Often it is better to choose the less accurate but better looking solution, so that's what I'll try next. I would love if someone could suggest a solution for the front lip that wraps all around the bottom of the bumper. It is 1.7 studs high and the angle does not want to match any solution I come up with. I know this does not look like much, but thats what happens when you look at the early stages of a MOC. I hope you enjoyed this, I'll try to keep you updated on my progress. Gray Gear
  17. Hello Eurobrickers! I have a great announcement for you guys, especially those who are interested in Cavegod's UCS AT-AT. Over the past month or so, I have worked a countless number of hours in order to bring all of you guys something that this MOC deserved ever since its creation, a proper instruction manual. Yes, that's right, the famed issues of LDD will no longer be apart of this project thanks to this manual. Now I'm sure you're wondering, how big is a 6000+ piece manual? Well, to answer that question, the manual is a massive 1,089 pages. No that is not a typo, ONE THOUSAND AND EIGHTY NINE PAGES!!! In order to receive this manual, it is available for a price of $35 per copy. For information or to talk to me about purchasing a copy, please PM me or email me at chrdvorak@hotmail.com . If it is a common question and not one specific to you, please feel free to comment it here, and I will answer it, unless you want to PM or email me. A special thanks goes out to both Cavegod and drdavewatford. Cavegod designed a masterful MOC, one of the greatest ever, and drdavewatford was kind enough to allow me use of some of his photos throughout the manual. This could not be achieved without you guys! Enough of me talking, here are some images directly from the manual:
  18. Good evening community, Today i want to present our latest realized model. The XII H2 was especially designed for the hilly terrain of saxony. It has been built in Chemnitz between 1910 and 1927. The model consists of approx 1121 parts and it´s about 58 studs long. The model is a customer-wish and it´s designed for a motorization with power-functions as well as powered-up and for sure with the old 9V train-motor. All the electronics like motor, battery-box and IR-reciever take place in the large coal-tender. All the wheels are from Big Ben Bricks. The main wheels are XL-drivers, the wheels on the front-bogie are medium and at the tender are small train wheels. To make this locomotive with the low hanging cylinders suitable for curves, i separated the cylinders horizontally. The upper part is fixed to the main frame and the lower part is connected to the bogie and could swivel left and right. Special attention was paid to the boiler with the golden rings and the golden accents like in the example. The technic to create the boiler rings was taken over from the DR BR 01 of Simon Jakobi (Dr.Snotson). The instruction of the DR BR 38.2-3 is no available on our website. As a speciality i also want to use this opportunity to present our latest news. Since November the 1st we offer different 3D-printed components in our shop too. We offer different rod-designs in various dimensions, as well as rod sets or special components like blind-wheels or customer solutions. This offer is probably most interresting for customers in europe because we´re located in Germany but we ship worldwide too. And here with custom 3D printed parts.

    MOC: The Yellow Castle

    2018 is something of a landmark year. The LEGO Brick as we know it is 60 years old. The Minifigure has celebrated its 40th. Something that may have been missed in all the excitement is the fact that set 375, Yellow Castle was launched 40 years ago. @Rufus has shared his project to restore the classic set, and I had a chance to discuss my plans with him at the Eurobricks Event this year. For it's anniversary year I decided to create a tribute to that great, classic, set. Oh, and I took it to an actual castle near me for a photo-shoot. I live and grew up in the ancient Kingdom of Gwent, or a more recently, the Historic County of Monmouthshire. An area much fought over by Welsh Princes and English Kings. Thus, there are a lot of castles around me and they featured just as much as LEGO in my childhood. I displayed this build at a local event and created flyers for people to look at. Chepstow, Goodrich, Raglan and Yellow Castle Now some stats! The whole build is 82 Studs in length and 40 Bricks high from baseplate to flagpole tip on the tallest tower. The whole build took me several months, on average I would build for about four hours a week. Digging out the bricks I wanted (just so much yellow!) and building with a few sketches and a lot of ideas. I have spent years building MOCs and visiting castles; Last year I visited a fair number of Edward I's Ring of Iron, so I had a good mental picture of my end result. The printed flag was my only project specific purchase, everything else was already in my collection (Twenty Five years and counting). I used pretty much all of the yellow 1x2, 1x1 and 1x3 bricks I own. Not to mention a lot of light-bley arches. I chose the Black Knight's flag as I love the design and the colours complemented the build and custom created the second flag using two LEGO logo stickers from the many unused sticker sheets I have accumulated (from set 3221). The printed flag decided what colours I would use for the waving flags, Red and Blue are good classic colours. This is the best view to pick out detailing on the Keep of the castle and the styles of window built in to the structure. While only the grandest details and glazing will do for the Keep, home of the Lord and his family, the other towers have more practical and defensive considerations. Now it is time to visit the castle. The rise in the land made a perfect vantage point to build a fortress, but an approach has been worn in over the years. After the castle's founding, a defensively minded caretaker decided that a Barbican would be useful to keep the main castle secure. The large doors can open wide to let welcome guests in, but the guards maintain a watch just in case. You can spot a treasure under the castle, secreted long ago. The moat splits the castle and the barbican, the drawbridge allows people to cross but can be raised in an attack. An axle can be turned to pull the chain in through the arches and raise the drawbridge. The tall castle gate sits within the strong gatehouse, guarded from above by stalwart men. You can also see the Lord of the Castle through the gates. A closer look, you can see the Lord, his daughter and son and a member of staff. The well supplies the castle with fresh water all the time, saving it during siege. Opposite the well is the door into the Keep and behind the lord is an archway that leads to the wall walk and either towers. This vantage point lets you see the Great Window for the castle Hall, the Lord's quarters also have a detailed set of windows and there is special stonework atop the keep. The staff and guards go about their business as the young lord plays with a dog. The Kitchen Tower is closest to the well and has a great chimney for the large cooking range. It can provide meals for the whole castle. The tower room is part home, part office for the Steward of the castle. He ensure day to day life runs smoothly at the castle and is second only to the Lord and his family. Of course, there are plenty of staff and residents of the castle. This smily chap is one of them. He is quite at home here! This Build has honestly been my largest project to date, both in scale and volume of bricks. Not only did I want to celebrate the milestones of LEGO this year, the landmarks of my home and the possibilities available with the most basic of LEGO bricks. But I also wanted to mark my 10th year of EB membership with something big to share with everyone.

    [MOC] Winter Gazebo in the Park

    My entry to the celebration activity on LEGO.com. Merry Christmas everyone!
  21. Hi! This is my first proper LEGO military scale model MOC of a real vehicle - the famous M1126 Stryker ICV! The MOC is a true display model, very close to the true mini figure scale. I tried to stay true to the scale and detailing of the real vehicle as much as possible using many reference pictures, and I am especially proud on the Protector RWS turret :). As a display model, the Stryker has limited play-ability - the two roof hatches can open for posing the crew inside, the Protector turret can be "turned" and moved, front wheels also can be turned. No interior detailing though. I am very much looking forward to build a nice small diorama around this beast in the future! Here you can see the pictures of the M1126 from my Flickr account: M1126 STRYKER ICV by Kristaps Ročāns, on Flickr M1126 STRYKER ICV by Kristaps Ročāns, on Flickr M1126 STRYKER ICV by Kristaps Ročāns, on Flickr M1126 STRYKER ICV by Kristaps Ročāns, on Flickr M1126 STRYKER ICV by Kristaps Ročāns, on Flickr M1126 STRYKER ICV by Kristaps Ročāns, on Flickr M1126 STRYKER ICV by Kristaps Ročāns, on Flickr M1126 STRYKER ICV by Kristaps Ročāns, on Flickr M1126 STRYKER ICV by Kristaps Ročāns, on Flickr M1126 STRYKER ICV by Kristaps Ročāns, on Flickr And some "artsy" pictures :) M1126 STRYKER ICV by Kristaps Ročāns, on Flickr M1126 STRYKER ICV by Kristaps Ročāns, on Flickr I hope you like this one! :)

    (MOC) Chateau de Morgana (WIP)

    I have recently started on a massive castle project, something to a scale I have never built before. The completed castle will be situated on roughly 3x3 48x48 baseplates, and be as realistic as possible to a castle built between the 11th and 13th centuries in Britain or France. I would love to hear peoples' opinions on my work so far, as well as suggestions or constructive criticism. The first section is a span of curtain wall flanked by 2 round towers. Inside the bailey is a half timber tudor style building, which I have not decided what will be inside. https://flic.kr/p/2jL2hm5 If anyone can explain how I post pictures in the body of the message, I would greatly appreciate it! I have also included a gate with a brick built portcullis, which, in my opinion, turned out beautifully! And here is a WIP exterior view of the curtain wall sections and towers. The tan keep is also visible in the background.
  23. Almost 3 years to the day after initially sharing my BSG MOC (here), I've finally finished a fairly major refit of the design to improve visuals and proportions and include a cool engine tweak that one of the builders of my original came up with (EzraTPrice, take a bow!), and I have invested the time to produce step-by-step instructions (slightly over 600 steps) for folks who are interested in building this new version for themselves. Model Statistics 3,493 parts (with 4x4 dish only) 3,497 parts (with Seal of the 12 Colonies disc) 18.4x51.0x24.3 (cm) : 7.3x20.1x9.6 (in) : 23.1x63.8x30.4 (studs) ~2,482 (g) : ~87.5 (oz) Compared to the original, there are structural and cosmetic changes to the head, neck/body, landing bay pods, engines, and the stand. Lots more pics on my Flickr stream! The instructions are available via Rebrickable.

    FOENIX - Warrior [MOC]

    Hi Everbody, Here I want to show you MOC Builds of the FOENIX - Warrior. The FOENIX - Warrior is a combat fighter against injustiuce in the year 2245. His Story is told with LEGO bricklink Bricks. The First Project is the FOENIX ,,emn-17" Truck. This vehicle is given to the FOENIX - Warrior by the United Nations. The vehicles of the United Nations hava a Different colour sheme in the FOENIX - Warrior Story, than we know from today. The Vehicles of the United Nations hava a Blue - White - Grey Military Camouflage colour, to sembolize the friendy Mission of the United Nations. Here is a Review of the FOENIX - Warrior Truck. This vehicle has a Brick Modular building, which allows to repair the (imagination) Motor in Front of the Truck.
  25. While excavators are long-time favorite of Technic, I recently saw something new in a construction site nearby: an excavator which had a boom that telescoped and rotated around its axis, instead of articulated jib. I then learned that a company called Gradall makes those, here's an example: So I set out to build one, though I make no attempt to replicate the looks exactly as some parts of this machine are next to impossible to replicate in Lego, at least in reasonable size. The first problem was the triangular cross-section of the boom, but very soon it became clear that it's not feasible so I settled for squared cross-section. Considering the functions of axial rotation, luffing and telescoping it also became clear that the motor driving the telescoping action would have to be located on the boom, and hoses for the pneumatically operated bucket would have to run the length of the boom and exit at the back so that there would be room for extension. I wanted to extend it as much as possible, and some 11-12 studs seems to be reasonable maximum. Here's a photo of one stage: Next in line was an attempt to build a superstructure which would support the batteries, pneumatic controls and gearbox for the axial rotation and luffing. At this stage I didn't even think of full motorization or remote control, I don't have PF parts for that and it was already complex enough. I got it as far as testing the motorized boom functions which more or less of worked, but I wasn't satisfied with the performance and there was a lot of problems with the gearing anyway. Here's a photo: At this point I was at sort of a crossroads: take apart and rebuild the superstructure to fix the aforementioned problems with gearing and try to finishing the thing OR make it even more ambitious with the Mindstorms Robot Inventor set that I just recently bought. It would have 4 additional motors (to complement the two PU medium motors I already owned) and hub with 6 outputs which could be controlled much better than what PF allows, enabling perhaps full RC control with proper programming. I chose the latter so that's what I've been doing recently. And it hasn't been easy. First I needed to decide how to use my motors and how to connect them to the functions. With motorized drive (2x tracks) and slewing in addition to the boom controls (axial rotation, telescoping, luffing, bucket switch and pump) there are more functions than the hub has outputs so some sort of gearbox would be required. The 8043 Motorized Excavator acted as an inspiration with its 6 functions for 4 motors, and I decided to try similar gearbox solution where 4 two-position selectors are moved with one motor at the same time so that in one position you can drive and slew and in another position all boom functions can be operated. I also stole the coaxial drive mechanism for tracks from the same set. Here's where I'm now in photo: And in digital model: I recently realized that it's almost impossible to use the angular motors in driving the boom extension, so I ordered a C+ L motor for that purpose and I'm waiting for that now. I also ordered a new type of pneumatic switch, so that it's easier to operate with motor. Some problems at this stage: Is there any way to make the boom support narrower? The problem is the gearing for axial rotation, which seems to be pretty much impossible to fit in between the turntables in any narrower configuration than this: Another problem is the gearbox construction, how to route all the functions to their places while still having the gearbox to be properly supported and smooth so everything works fine. Especially the axial rotation seems to be hard to achieve as there is a lot of resistance in the thing. With the earlier PF iteration I tried routing the gearing to both sides so that both turntables would rotate and while it sort-of works it of course introduces a lot of gears and friction. Turning just one turntable would have the force directed through the boom to the other turntable and that requires a lot of force too so it's probably not feasible. And of course I haven't even touched the programming side of things with the RI hub yet, but I suspect that'll be much easier. Any thoughts or tips?
