  1. What do you think will be coming out of the Speed Champions series in 2021? Personally, I think there is a chance for something from IMSA. There may be such sets: Corvette C7.R (small set) Koenigsegg Jesco (small set) Porsche Taycan (small set) Toyota Ts050 Hybrid (double set) Aston Martin Vulcan or Vantage GTE (double set) And maybe something else with hypercar because of the WEC season 2020/2021

    Lego Pneumatic Engine

    https://youtu.be/UFPNWZeeXQw Lego Pneumatic Engine. What is it? How to make it? The first it needs to finish Lego fake cylinder like in this video https://youtu.be/HcHneyewATE or https://youtu.be/0aZvWva41Ek. The second - to add o-ring to Lego piston like in this video https://youtu.be/wZu-l32Dajw or .
  3. 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! :)

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Hi all, I figured that instead of hijacking everyone's threads with similar questions about modulars, to just create one thread where people can ask questions and the like. This way we are not junking up specific topics with questions about multiple modulars. I look forward to the discussion with everyone! ------------------------- :-: For Reference :-: We have had the following: Cafe Corner Market Street Green Grocer Fire Brigade Grand Emporium Pet Shop Town Hall Palace Cinema Parisan Restaurant Detectives Office Brick Bank Assembly Square Downtown Diner Corner Garage Bookshop The unique business's that have come out of those modulars are: Apartment (MS) Apartment (GC) Apartment (PR) Apartment (DO) Apartment (AS) Apartment (CG) Art Studio (PR) Bakery (MS) Bakery (AS) Bank (BB) Barbara Shop (DO) Book Store (BS) Cafe (CC) Cafe (AS) Dance Studio (AS) Dentist (AS) Department Store (GE) Detectives Office (DO) Diner (DD) Garage (CG) Gas Station (CG) Grocery Store (GC) Gym (DD) Fire House (FB) Flower Shop (AS) Laundromat (BB) Movie Theater (PC) Music Store (AS) Pet Store (PS) Photo Studio (AS) Pool Hall (DO) Recording Studio (DD) Restaurant (PR) Town Hall (TH) Town House (PS) Town House (BS) Veterinarian (CG)

Rear with articulated arm, 2 fire extinguishers, ore box, articulated arm control panel, 1 spaceman's hand tools, one antenna, 1 airtank. Front of the buggy with camera, sensors, binoculars, 2 walkie-talkies, a mini-satellite-antenna and control panel.

On the Shuttle : reactors, engines, jet turbine, cannons, 4 front sensors, radiators, small antenna, 2 horizontal ailerons, 2 vertical ailerons, lifters, steering nozzle, rear computer control panel. Basically, I took a bit of inspiration from the Speeders of the Meta-Universe from Starwars. search keywords for all see : "type = speeders" https://www.starwars-universe.com/encyclopedie/vaisseaux_vehicules.php [NCS] 6842 - Shuttle Craft, Remastered by Horlack, sur Flickr [NCS] 462-897- Mobile Rocket Launcher, Remastered The Mythic 462-897 Mobile Rocket Launcher set was too small, so ... I remastered it in 2020 version. I had some difficulty with the Rocket, because I didn't want to use round bricks. I wanted something more elegant with cool building techniques. So I remade the rocket entirely in brickbuild. Ditto for the radar. In short, a little technical originality. I didn't want to be conventional. I used the elements of my old constructions to keep it homogeneous. The radar cockpit rotates 360°, and the radar itself also rotates, 360°. The radar cockpit is quite worked with control screens everywhere, as well as small joysticks. A walkie-talkie, a hammer and an adjustable wrench hang on it. I retake : - The chassis of my [NCS] 6802-Space Probe Remastered - The radar of my [NCS] 452-894-Mobile Tracking Station, Remastered [NCS] 462-897- Mobile Rocket Launcher, Remastered by Horlack, sur Flickr [NCS] 462-897- Mobile Rocket Launcher, Remastered by Horlack, sur Flickr The goal is to remain homogeneous in the architecture. Which is sometimes not an easy task. All the blocks are interchangeable, between all my creations. It's Modular, on a vehicle scale. Details of the rocket. Use of modified brick, by turning them 45 ° in the central body of the rocket, in order to build it "in hexagon" [NCS] 6901 - Mobile Lab, Remastered Always in the spirit of keeping modules of old constructions to reuse them. Just to swap modules, to make another MOC. Maximum standardization. The forward cockpit contains 2 repair utensils. It opens through doors on the side or through the central canopy. It is a resumption of the cockpit of the "1580 Lunar Scout, Remastered", by adding 2 ladders, and by rotating the roof sensors 180 °. The aft cockpit opens by rotating the canopy, or through the roof by eclipsing the radar. It contains 2 levers and 3 control panels which are in height. The chassis is also a recovery. An excavator entirely made in brickbuild. I did not find any existing parts, adapted to the scale of the vehicle, so a brickbuild is needed :) [NCS] 6901 - Mobile Lab, Remastered by Horlack, sur Flickr [NCS] 6901 - Mobile Lab, Remastered by Horlack, sur Flickr Well, I'm pretty happy with the look. I was worried that with my history of taking modules from other builds, it would result in a lousy mobile lab. Overall, "no". I had to be inventive on the rear 4x6 module block part. Once the seat and the astronaut were installed, I found myself stuck putting screens on him! And worse, not being able to get it out of the cockpit, lol Yeah, that's bad! Even blowing up the radar which is made up of 2 modular blocks, there was really little room. in fact, I had it kinda on my own, absolutely wanting a seat, which made it worse in a minimalist space. My neurons have overheated! Hence the idea of putting a canopy at an angle, from the top, to gain length space to take out the spaceman, but also to put control panels on the ceiling. And in fact, without wanting to, I took again in a different form, the horizontal rear opening of the 2 doors of the original 6901, but in a single vertical one at the rear.

The canopy is not green, because I will take over the cockpit structure for another construction. I couldn't put the chassis as low as the original, but overall I stayed in the "spirit" of the little scout utility vehicle.

I feel hot and boiling there! ☢️ A little Classic-space 6841 Mineral Detector Remastered, only bigger. I have tried to stay true to the functionality and structure of the original. Then added in all directions: Mini-articulated arm at the back, box to store minerals, box to crush minerals and analyze them, communication antenna, walkie-talkies, various small radars / cameras / front detectors at the front of the vehicle, small rock hammer, hand detector (which can be hung on the mini articulated arm) and various control panels. [NCS] 6841 - Heavy Mineral Detector Remastered by Horlack, sur Flickr [NCS] 6841 - Heavy Mineral Detector Remasterised by Horlack, sur Flickr [NCS] 452-894 - Mobile Tracking Station, Remastered Functional quality, of course :). Radar in tow that turns in all directions. The 2 small folding jacks when the trailer is unhooked. (A radar not horizontal, when the trailer tilts, it works much less well!) Radar on the roof of the vehicle which rotates 360 °. I really thoroughly styled this 2nd radar with sensors everywhere and tried to keep "the best spirit" with the 2 round transparent things.

  8. Hi everyone! I'm very happy to introduce you my new Lego Ideas project! :) This is from the times when things were simpler - from my childhood :) https://ideas.lego.com/projects/c5e0de2d-6837-46fd-82ee-16a1a0d56bc2 This idea consists of close to 500 pieces and features all 5 members of Rescue Rangers team and their iconic aircraft built by Gadget :) Also there is a stand designed to look like a part of a tree and a ladder for balancing the plane and extra play-ability. In this build I used only existing molds with some recolors and custom prints! Please support if you like it, any help with sharing is much appreciated! :) The updated brick built kinetic version!
  9. It's a time of upheaval in the galaxy. The New Republic has just defeated the Empire at the Battle of Jakku. Those who fought in the Rebellion now have to adjust to being a part of a legitimate government, or find other means of employment.  Those who fought for the Empire no longer have an Emperor to follow and must decide whether to align themselves with one of the many Imperial Admirals staking a claim or forge their own path.  Those caught in the middle must adjust to a newlife and pray they can make a living under a new regime.    Add to this turmoil the news that Holocrons of the Jedi have been rumored to be surfacing in various places across the galaxy.  It is rumored that only a Jedi or Sith can unlock the true potential of a Holocron, but there are those who have been able to manipulate them enough to get at least some data. The data they've recovered speaks of an earlier age, a forgotten time. Days when Jedi and Sith fought across the stars.  Or an army of clones sought to preserve the order of the Republic.  There are many who will pay a hefty amount of credits or even kill for this data.  Now, the New Republic, the fragments of the Empire, smugglers, bounty hunters, and anyone else who has access to a starship are seeking them.
  10. It is evident, at least for me, that there has been a significant decrease in the number of MOCs that are made and I would like to know your opinion about that... Almost everything is already built?, new pieces are needed?, do it happens with all the Lego themes?, or maybe is just me?.
  11. For those unaware, the Mandela Effect is the concept of false memories of the past - it takes its name from the most famous example of this, which is that many remember Nelson Mandela dying in prison in the 80s when he actually died in 2013. Usually the Mandela Effect refers to a shared false memory across a group of people. Do you have any false memories involving Lego? Maybe you remember a set or part being released which doesn't exist, a set or figures having different features or you remember a set being released in a different year? Post your examples below, there are bound to be some given that most of us discover Lego at a young age when our memory is just developing. I have 1 example of this: I'm sure I remember a small adventurers set (https://letsbuilditagain.com/instructions/5938/) having a feature where the skeleton pops up when the tomb is opened - I've never owned this set but I'm sure I can remember a picture of a box like this one where the skeleton is popping up from the trap door. This feature was in a studios set I think and also a Harry Potter set a few years later so maybe that's why.
  12. The Havoc is the pirate Nym's Scurrg H-6 Bomber from the old Starfighter games on PS2 and Xbox. I've posted a couple of earlier models since 2018 and this is the final version of this ship - of which I am now happy to present building instructions for those who wish to include this powerful craft in their Lego collection - there are 1320 pieces required, most of which are very common parts. I've gathered as much data as possible about the ship and included every specification and detail that I could possibly find, so that the ship features stations for 2 astromech droid co-pilots, seating for 3 passengers, guns galore including a rotating roof turret, retractable landing gear and an energy-bomb dropper within the undercarriage. Thanks for looking and I hope you like my build! PDF instructions available from Rebrickable: https://rebrickable.com/.../MOC-55952/evilkirk/the-havoc/...

    [MOC] DB BR98.3 "Glaskasten" - 12v

    Hi all, this time I propose a real build, it's not completely new - many of you surely has seen it in some of my digital renderings, but was never built. I finished it yesterday, when the red motor finally was repaired and the missing rare 2x2 black window arrived. To create this one, my third copy of 7810 was used as donor for the baseplate and black windows. So I decided to keep the 7810 number when I chose the stickers (the renderings have 7730 decals). Just to explain, all my MOC locomotives keep numbering of original Lego sets from which are derived in terms of parts. To celebrate its arrival, I used my small 12v test track. As you can see is a very simple build, standardized in 12v style adding the black side doors (absolutely not present in the prototype), and 5 2x2 black windows. The red motor was a must- I tried to use the black one - but it wasn't the same thing!!! This motor was not running anymore, so I bought a black one in bad aesthetic conditions as donor. I removed the electric motor from black shell, cleaned all inner parts, reinforced the red shell internally with some superglue (it had some cracks), changed axles (using the ones from black motor) and performed a test. Once the test was ok - I finally glued the two parts of the red shell. Even if the chassis is common to other locomotives, it seems very small. The inside is small aswell, and I only could fit a lever in 7750 style. You can see the 12v light brick and its cables. I bought some 12v light microbulbs - maybe I will succeed to light up also the rear headlight when going in reverse. Even if it has no weight bricks, it still has a decent pulling power and runs fine with small wagons. Now it needs its own set of cars. I hope you like it!!! Ciao, Davide

    [MOC] 1961 Chrysler New Yorker

    Minifig scale, I wish I had more chrome but it is what it is. The piece it all stemmed from is 85940 and then the rest of the car just sort of worked itself out. I actually started making a random car stemming from this piece and then by accident discovered that there was one that had the exact same headlight configuration so I continued on with the 1961 Chrysler New Yorker.

  17. This topic has a lot of photos inside, to make it easier for everyone to see the latest version of my MOD, I have editted this first post to show version 5, 14th Nov 2020. Your feedback is welcome or share your MOD ideas Please! Port View by R Y, on Flickr Bow by R Y, on Flickr Stern Starboard by R Y, on Flickr My Lego collection consisted mainly of SW sets and its MOCs, I was tempted to get the 21322 Barracuda Bay when it came out in April but decided to save up for the UCS A-Wing, which I still haven’t got around to build yet, I have been modify the 75175 A-wing. A-Wing Mod by R Y, on Flickr I wasn’t too keen on the 31109 Creator Pirate Ship when I first saw its photos, especially the brick-built sails. During the Queen’s Birthday long weekend, I was reading posts on OZLUG of buying multiple sets to make it a bigger ship; that grabbed my attention as I mod all Lego sets where possible after I figured out Bricklink. However, at RRP of $160 AUD each, I might as well just buy the 21322 for $300 AUD; then again thanks to OZLUG, I realised that they are $119 at Kmart, meaning $238 worth of investment, no brainer! I quickly read up on reviews from Brickset and Brother’s Brick, how the completely brick-built design is its selling point, instead of using specialized boat hull pieces. My local Kmart had no stock, so I went to the next nearest one, nothing on the shelves again and a store girl told me all they have is already on the shelfs even though the online stock check shows limited availability. Disappointed, I was about the leave the store empty handed before I talked past the customer service counter, there was only one person in line so I decided to wait and check. The service girl was very helpful and checked the stock room for me, it turned out they do have three at the back, which I gladly picked up two; she told me apparently people try to steal Lego all the time, so they keep the good stuff at the back. I had to wait for my baby to settle and sleep before started building that night. As the original model is built in 3 sections: bow with forecastle, waist, stern with captain’s cabin; I decided to build 2 x waists sections and have 3 masts. I always build repetition sections step by step simultaneously instead of finishing one section and start another, personally I find this method quicker. My aim is to stick to the original Lego design and finish the hull asap, redesign the masts into foremast, mainmast and mizzen mast, and use the remaining pieces to touch up and make the 2 waists transition smoothly. 31109 Long Side View by R Y, on Flickr I wanted to rig the ship from the bowsprit to the stern flagpole, I had to move the “Plate Round 2 x 2 with Pin Hole and 4 Arms Up” to the mainmast beneath the lookout so the arms are equal distance to the diagonal spars from the foremast and mizzen mast. I spent more time on the foremast and rigging than any other sections. I tried a few different arrangements before settled down on the current layout, where the rigging goes down to the bowsprit from the upside-down diagonal spar. I used light bluish grey Technic Bush instead of the yellow ones provided. The hose piece is still slightly short and the bowsprit is pulled upwards, but the jib sail hides most of it. Overall, I was happy that I achieved my goal. Masts and Rigging by R Y, on Flickr I added a 1 x 2 red brown plate to each of the gun port openings so they are not too close to the waterline, I initially wanted to add 2 pieces per opening, but they were too high and affected the guns inside. You can tell where each of the section ends with the breaks from the 3027 6 x 16 plate in dark tan secured with 2 x 2 blue round tiles. I made sure the 1 x 4 special plates overlap the gap to secure the sections. The alternating red and light orange strip along the deck worked out perfectly, I was initially worried that I may get a double up of same coloured plates with my MOD. Joins of the Sections by R Y, on Flickr As Lego only gives half the number of guns compare to the gun ports, having 2 sets gives me 4 guns to fill up the front gun deck, squeezed 2 minifigs inside with torches. Gun Deck with Baboon by R Y, on Flickr I plated over the opening next to the gangways on the 2nd waist, to make it look like a quarterdeck, but not really raised due to the limitation of my skills in the mod. I really like the brick-built rowing boat from the alternative Skull Island bult, I made it longer using 2 x 2 slopes at the stern and made other changes as certain parts were already used in the main ship built. I also built a boat rack with 4 cheese slopes and some plates. The rowing boat fills up on the empty quarterdeck perfectly, I really like how it turned out. Rowing Boat by R Y, on Flickr With the 2 sets of 3 human minifigs, I swapped around their outfits, brought in a pair of black legs to swap out the peg leg. Now I have 6 different minifigs, I left out the epaulette for the officer to differentiate him from the captain. a9 by R Y, on Flickr a8 by R Y, on Flickr I built the red/green parrot and blue seagull according to the instructions, again had to use some different pieces due to availability. Lastly, I added the pet baboon hanging off the shroud, it’s a really fun build where its arms and waist are twistable to get a good pose. Baboon by R Y, on Flickr I really liked how this MOD turned out, this is probably the cheapest and easiest way to get a Lego 8-gun full-rigged-ship (three or more masts), even the 21322 only has only two masts. It’s around 58cm long from the tip of the bowsprit to the edge of stern flag, around 36cm tall from the tip of mainmast to the bottom of the hull, 19cm wide at the horizontal spars. With the elongated waist, it makes the forecastle and poop deck seem small in comparison, a bit out of proportion to be honest; but at this stage, I don’t have the skills to design and make them bigger.

  20. I need help with making lego mecha joints, and a good technic frame.
  21. Two great trains are dueling on 12v gray track: the British Railways HST 125 vs the Deutsche Bahn BR403 "Donald Duck"! Two big countries with high expertise on trains,two different power sources (Diesel vs Electric), same speed (above 200km/h or 125mph). Who will win this Lego contest? None of them, since they both are built on the same Lego platform and shape - I created first the "Donald Duck" in Lufthansa colors and then I modified it a little to recall the HST125. So same power cars ,and same wagons, only with a different paint scheme . I've always focused on standard trains, and this is my first experiment with fast ones. After all , during "gray Era" we've seen a lot of steamers, diesels, electric trains...but only one example of fast train. So here's a shot of the DB403, with an applied sticker on front "window" to simulate double windscreens... ...and one of the "Screaming Valenta" - here the sticker is a bit different, but you can easily tell it is only a bigger one! Both are using parts available in the last years of "Gray Era" (so they could have been made starting from 1987). The HST could be a bit older than the 403 - since it's using the old style blue window in the cabin. I could also recreate a yellow sticker to cover the outer part of the trans-clear headlight, but I preferred to keep it as it is (just imagine the sticker detaching when the glue is old...I HATE that sensation ) Both could have working headlights, the DB403 can use a 12v light brick on top headlight. For the HST125 the problem is how to diffuse light from light brick to transparent slopes. But both trains could also leverage on 9V lights, which were already available at the time. The 9v Battery box fits easily in both bodies. Finally the 7745 has some internal competition!!! Hope you like these two! Ciao! Davide
  22. After about 5 months of work (off and on), I've finally finished my modified C.K. Holliday train (Lego 71044). During high school and college in the 90s, I was a conductor on the DLRR, so this set hits close to home and is something I've wanted for a long, long time. It also means I was keenly aware of where the stock model wasn't quite accurate. This was my first time modifying a Lego set, and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.The engine was pretty heavily reworked, and I made some changes to the parlor car as well. Approximate mod list includes: Changed boiler jacket to dark blue, inspired by @TJJohn12. Lengthened the engine by two studs. Increased engine width at pistons to 9 studs. Reworked the pilot to use a double-pin system similar to the Constitution. Reworked pistons inspired by @Carefree_Dude. Drive rods by @zephyr1934. Redesigned cab interior.

    [MOC] Aston Martin DB5

    Martin, Aston Martin. Kind of a tribute to the late Sir Sean Connery, the car he made famous or was it the other way around. Minifig scale, the colour is not the best but even Lego won't do it properly.
