Note, this also employ's ThomasB's gearing improvement for the EN http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=28273&st=75
Incidentally, If you have #10194, you should seriously consider...
1) The mod above
2) This mod: http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=37468
3) Swapping the 5L drive rod lift arms with 7L lift arms
Those three, relatively minor upgrades serve to make the engine run much more smoothly.
I also have the City set 'Town Square' to build, #60026 which looks like fun, I wanted the bus and motorcycles mostly from it.
They were the Creator Ferris wheel and the USC Bat Mobile.
I'm hoping this will turn her!
Well, how could I possibly disappoint her after that? ;-)
Almost 6 hours later, we (mostly she) had designed and created a very nice "dream" version of her house and front garden, filling a 32 by 32 baseplate, with minifig versions of herself, her parents, and myself and Mrs Q. She proudly took it home to display in her bedroom, to be returned for brick-recovery in 2 weeks (but I plan to let her keep the minifigs).
A fun excuse to build, Mrs Q delighted that I kept our guest occupied for almost a day, and the possible birth of a new TFOL - a pretty good weekend by my standards! :-)
A wharenui. A Maori Meeting house. Maori are the indigenous / native people of New Zealand. Going well, and about to attach the roof structure.
Oh, and I have to dig out some 'brown' minifigs. Thanks to was-it-Indiana Jones, I've got some ... Sadly they're probably clothed, so I might struggle to 'dress' them in native Maori outfits ....
My first attempt at a "new" style Technics (all my other are at least 20 years old) - I'm impressed that such a small set could be so creative. Great leaning experience, at 80% done, I realized the first axle I put in was the wrong one and I had to semi-disassemble and repair.
Good excuse to get the full size unimog model then.
*does not float*
Wow, Lego did quite a job on me with that warning, it's really quite persistent. Soon as I thought about a lego ship *does not float* just auto-pings into my head. :oS
But seriously, been a very long time since I've built a LEGO ship. Enjoying it so far.
Actually, how come Lego have never done motorized hulls? I can imagine that being a popular amongst afols thing. Motorized remote-controlled Lego ships and boats, maybe even with little firing cannons and targets that flip down when hit. Or light-sensitive laser things to record 'strikes'.
^That Sebulba's podracer looks absolutely gorgeous! I never picked that set up, as i couldn't quite justify it to myself (i don't have plans to recreate much prequel stuff in my SW display), but it's slowly working its way to being a 'hmmm, maybe i should've' set. It's such a good recreation.
However, I'm not simply bricklinking the pieces. I am recreating it in new colors and new build techniques. I am appreciating it a lot more. Plus I have a lot of the newer colored pieces so it works out cheaper in the long run. The only snag will be creating my own sails.
