Your boxes look great, if a bit over-engineered!
Here’s a video of our layout from this past weekend:
[email protected], and good luck. Did you clean them properly?
Looks like the gbc bug has bitten north of the border. We have went from no gbc builders to enough we might have a colab put together by Glesga Bricks in September. We just need to actually build stuff as we are all gbc novices.
Sure, they may well run fine, but we've all had modules we've had to pull out of a display after a couple of hours because it's just not working as it should. Also, have a 'back up' module or two for this very reason, to be able to slot it into the gap you've created by pulling a broken module out.
The clever bit (apart from coming up with it!) is getting it all to rotate and move in sync. It'd be interesting to see how long it can keep going for without some part of it breaking...
Basically, GBCs are funny things - parts have problems you don't expect, tensions you can't predict, and sometimes, just sometimes, modules which worked perfectly when testing don't work at all when you put them in a layout.
I washed them in a pillow case and now they are sparkling again.
I also have at least 8 sets to build, including the UCS MF, Corner Garage, Technic Bugatti, Technic Porsche (new one), and Technic Rough Terrain Crane. They've been sat in my Lego room mostly since January.
In addition to that, I have a few new parts to build a new Robot Wars robot from before STEAM in October.
However, my Lego room is currently in a complete mess, with boxes everywhere, and no tables built up at all. This is due to me planning to move house earlier in the year, putting it all in storage and turning the room back into a bedroom. Then taking it all out of storage once I decided to postpone moving.
Of course, I could turn it back into a Lego room, build all my sets, build a new robot and fix my GBCs, were it not for the fact that I'm currently on the other side of the world on an long break.
I also have half a million other things waiting for me to do.
Oh and when I get back I also need to look for a new job, given that my old contract ended about a month ago. There's only so long you can live on savings!
And if that isn't enough, at some point I definitely need to move. Somewhere bigger. No idea where yet.
Sorry, did someone say something about washing dirty balls? ;)
