    Left side done! I gave up on the landing gear for now. The bottom wing is moved forward one stud, up one plate (toward the top wing), and outward one stud. The top wing is moved out and down. With the repositioned and improved laser cannons (and deleted spring missile launcher) the wings are now two studs longer. I'm thinking of lengthening the nose two studs or more. After I fix the right wings. Or should I have said port and starboard?

    Huh? Why are the words "landing gear" in blue? I didn't do that. Hey LEGO: when are we going to get a part to make the "flashback supressors" on the laser cannons?

    ^ Because skimlinks thinks you need to replace the landing gear on your drone through eBay?

    (Be thankful that it didn't think you needed a link for 'two studs'.)

    All done! I lengthened the nose cone by two studs and the rest of the nise by two studs.

    I'm a late comer to the LEGO Marvel game, but this gives me joy! 

    With much due thanks to @SumoLego for the assistance in completing the gauntlet. 

    Now to get some time to actually build the rest of #76107 and #76102

    If you're wanting the gauntlets with a full set of stones, the easiest option is #76131 & #76144, all the sets from Infinity War only contain a single stone for each set.

  • M1J0EM1J0E Calgary, ABMember Posts: 637
    ^ By far the easiest!  Too bad they didn’t do that with the infinity war sets as well.  I have just enough of them to make up the remainder that could be in #76131.  Though eventually I’d like to get #76131 as well for my city, bit it’s priced just a little high.  & sadly missed an incredible amazon deal one day.  But yes, very glad they decided to distribute all the stones among 2 endgame sets instead of one stone per infinity war set.

    I think it was 4 per infinity war set. but all the same colour.

    Correct the Infinity War sets have four on a ring shaped sprue, single colour, while #76131 has green & purple, #76144 has blue, orange, red & yellow (same kind of sprues).

    Just finished building #70419 Wrecked Shrimp Boat ... not a bad build but the rocks looked so stupid I've already deconstructed those. The boat and the kayak with alligator can stay up a while.

    Built #70835 Rexplorer today with my son. Fun set but trying to read the instructions for all that dark blue made me feel like I need an eye exam. Feels like a star wars ship apart from not being gray.

    Got the Tantive IV #75244 built. This is a beauty. The stickers at the front gave me some more grey hairs! But I think they came out ok in the end. 

    I do want more of those rebel troopers though, enough for a moc of the opening scene of IV or the end of Rogue One

    Only issue I had, and is a first for
    me, I had an (azure?) blue tile instead on a white one in one of the bags. Will report it to lego, but not bothered about a replacement as have lots of spare white ones but none of these blue ones.

    I've built, and parted out 75973, built and need to modify 75972 into a proper truck, and need to part out 75970. 75973 will lend itself to Baymax's red armor.

    Not sure what category this post belongs in ... I am working on building a MOC from instructions, the Brick City Bakery. I can't even build yet because I am waiting on arrival of the baseplate. I am a relatively new AFOL having started last November so I don't have the mega amounts of parts some do and am having to buy parts. My question for now is how do I manage the ordering of parts. I can't get them all at once by budget constraints (thanks to Christmas mostly). How do I keep track and how do I decide what to order! Any help on these first stages is welcome!

    I'd use Bricklink to create a wanted list of the inventory of pieces in the MOC instructions and update it as I go with quantities of pieces received. It will keep track of how many you have vs how many you still need.

    You could also use Excel to do it, but I prefer the Bricklink method as I could see what stores have what I need and order them right from there.

    @GrannyLEGO
    I would order as many pieces as possible through Bricks & Pieces.  They're Lego's replacement parts service but also give you the option to order a-la carte. Most modern and new elements are on there, and you're only paying for shipping once as well as getting VIP points (for what those are worth anymore). 

    What I've done in the past is print out the parts list from Bricklink or Rebrickable or wherever and cross off items as I order them.  I reserve Bricklink for parts that aren't available through Lego.  B&P has a maximum of 200 of any particular part, though some occasionally have lower quantity limits but those are exceedingly uncommon. I usually keep ordered parts separated by color.  

    If you do order through B&P, you can search elements by either their element number or the set number of a set they're contained in.  Make sure you click "Add more bricks" instead of just hitting the back button on your browser when you add more elements.

    Both @cguglielmi and @MrJackson suggest using Bricklinks and with the help of another member who PM'd me I have set up the want list of parts there. I had already done some attempts at listing in Excel and think I have too many lists now and have become confused! I see I have double ordered some parts and my list is not right so am going to work on correction and consolidation so I have everything pegged to the Bricklink list. That will also give time for the parts I have ordered to arrive and get marked up on the lists. Then a visit to LEGO.com's B&P and some orders after that at Bricklinks should set me straight ... budget permitting! This has helped so much and the emphasis on Bricklinks as well! Thank you everyone!

    @GrannyLEGO I would agree with the comments above.  One thought is to sort your BL list by quantity wanted.  Then you can more easily assess if the price on Bricks and Pieces is advantageous vs Bricklink.  I often will find a seller that has a good quantity of a piece I need at much lower prices than B&P.

    With my self imposed LEGO buying embargo in place, I've been diving through the backlog of sets finding interesting stuff to build.
    Over the weekend was the turn of #42077 - Technic Rally Car.

    Considering the box size, it's a hell of a lot bigger than it's online pictures make it appear (see minifig for reference) and was a fun build. Nothing too taxing for the old grey matter but technical enough to make you pay attention. 
    The stickers (unfortunately) bring a lot of character to the finished build but are all fairly easy to apply.
    My only issue (and it applies to most Technic sets with a lot of stickers) is that it still bothers me when the edge of a sticker sits over those little indents in the angled panels.
    I just can't stop the images of little dust mites laughing as they stick to the small exposed underside of the sticker from getting to me while applying them. :/

    That might help. I sort of sorted it out by sections of the building like the numbered bags in the LEGO sets and am thinking of getting all of a part for the whole thing but get them in the order of the build - does that make sense?

    @shikadi Show her that her idea has joined my minifigs. Fortunately I have enough separators to keep it like that. This shelf is about eye level just above my workspace so I see it often. Tell her "Thank You" from me.

    @shikadi Mr. Square Pant's 6 year old representative had some issues with the under sea pineapple design. Apparently the door was not the correct shape or colour and the residence was meant to be two story. We discussed the budgetary benefits of down-sizing and came to a compromise. This resulted in a hasty Bricklink order that has delayed Sponge Bob's possession date. Please check back for updates and invitations to the housewarming party!

    I spent most of today gathering the pieces to build #70012 Razar's CHI Raider in all black. There's a few pieces that I don't have in black (or don't exist). Next is to actually build it! I've wanted to do this for several years.

    Bit late to react but just wanted to say (about page 146) @Addicted2Oxygen loved all the pictures of the Death Star. Really fancy one myself now :) my son just built Cloud City and that was so cool too.
    @Bumblepants great MOC for Ninjago City
    @littlelori look forward to see the finished product of your arches
    @Basty, great idea, been looking for some way to incorporate that tile in a MOC, looks really good.
    @thefew nice rides (page 147)
    @Speedman29 I always love seeing your progress pics but when there's good so close to the LEGO I've got to count slowly to 20 before I can move on to the next picture :)
    @pxchris great gauntlet. Been watching Marvel movies with my son and we've realised we concentrated too much on collecting DC sets, that will have to change.
    @eMJeeNL great job!
