  1. Inspired by the latest rusian S-70 okhotnik and the B-2 Spirit. stealth0 by Nom Carver, en Flickr stealth3 by Nom Carver, en Flickr stealth2 by Nom Carver, en Flickr stealth1 by Nom Carver, en Flickr stealth4 by Nom Carver, en Flickr I didn't find a convincing way to connect plates on top of each other this way so I thought I could share the solution that came up to my mind hoping to be useful for someone else. stealth7 by Nom Carver, en Flickr
  2. I am trying to imitate the cartoony look of dust being thrown up when a figure runs fast. Something like the old speedy Gonzales cartoons. I have done a bit of searching but haven't found any good lego examples of this so far. I have attached an example of what I have right now but I don't have a solid connection. Does anyone have another example of imitating this or ideas for a solid connection? Thanks

    MOC: Attic

    I reckon I've come up with a new building technique using a 30134 - Staircase 7x4x6 as rafters. I apologise in advance if this technique has been posted before. The advantages of using a 30134 - Staircase 7x4x6 piece in this context is allowing the roof to be structurally stronger and they also represent the wooden rafters that go diagonally across a typical roof.

  4. I need to connect two sections of a mechanism where the axles are aligned x and +. They need to be in the same vertical axis but not necessarily the same horizontal axis. Right now I'm using one of the old 24-tooth gears with three axle holes. This works, but I'm wondering if there is a more compact technique that uses a part currently in production. I've been away from Technic building for a while and am not familiar with all the new connectors. Is there anything out there that will do this?

    Brick built cross track

    Recently, I came across an idea, originally by Leo Dorst, on a method to make a crossover track with standard Lego pieces. Seeing as original crossover tracks are rather expensive on Bricklink, and there is no real equivalent in terms of current Power Functions track parts, such a thing might be useful. His original sketches: From these pictures, it was fairly easy to recreate in LDD, then translate into real bricks. But, there was a problem. As it is, this design does not align with the geometry of the existing Lego track. But, the solution was fairly simple, which was to extend the cross 4 studs in every direction, as seen in my rendition. Now, the cross has exactly the same dimensions as the original, and can be used exactly the same way. All that was left to do was test it. I created a figure 8 shape using the pieces I had, and made a simple train run with Power Functions. It worked, although there are some traction problems when the engine is being started in the crossing. But, it is not a big problem, and it could be remedied by putting rubber bands on the PF train wheels for extra traction. .LXF file: I hope you all find this useful, especially those of you who don't want to use the other method, which involves cutting up parts.
