  1. Forgive the poor pictures, and the unfinished structure. This was my very very first project back from my dark ages, and I enjoyed the scaling so much but never got interested in finishing the aesthetics of the build. Scaled Sears Tower, not only the tower as a whole but also the nine columns that comprise it. Scaled to nearly 100% accuracy. Fun little project to return from one's dark ages. Full details, numbers, etc. located at:
  2. Hey everyone, just wanted to share an old MOC with ya’ll. Although this was build a while ago, I recently re-did the write-up and have never posted it on the forum. I never posted it because it is a relatively simple build and may not be very interesting to most. For such a large build and large piece count, there are less than 40 unique pieces used in the build, and no functions that we usually consider when we build with Technic. However, I do think that this MOC may be a good conversation-starter. Usually, we consider “Technic functions” as things that move, or in defining functioning, we think it is synonymous with movement. However, I think that there can be functionality in a model with no movement. As is the case with this MOC. Simple, with no aesthetic distraction, this MOC is simply a model of the framework of a popular building in the US. Check out the full write-up of the MOC on my page (signature block) for further details, but succinctly put, this build is scaled after the real thing, not just the project in total, but even the individual elements that comprise the whole structure’s frame. This leads me to my point. “Function” can be something provided that does not necessarily involve movement. Bridges, buildings, trusses, towers, etc. are all things that provide functionality with really no movement. Strength is a key component to these types of builds, and something that I think is somewhat underutilized here on the forum. Yes, these equal simple builds, but a wealth of information can be learned from them. Sariel’s book “Unofficial Lego Technic Building Guide” has many principles on building strong, which in my opinion is an important thing to consider when building with Technic and just as functional as moving parts. Pics below. The whole write-up is here....
