    it has to stand like a human to balance.

    so it's never going to stand up to Lego's building rules.

    While we're on unconventional building rules, imagine my surprise when I build below Custom Car Garage set, the techniques used are definitely not the usual Lego standard, I assumed TLG designers would have tidied up the design before releasing the official model (or maybe they already did!).

    As they are, the cars have to be handled very carefully :)

    dose any one know what Lego was trying to do with the "Factory" theme?
    and looking at the model's they look like they would fall apart if you sneezed close to them.

    I believe they're the predecessor to Cuusoo/Ideas, namely TLG gave those selected AFOL designed models a chance to go into production without much changes to the original design. Many of the models used non-conventional building techniques by the respective AFOL.

    I've managed to balance it on two legs, but I agree it's not one of the better Ninjago dragons. It's got decent parts though.

    yeah, actually that worked easily. I slightly modified the wings as it looked like they were broken or something.

    That program is my favorite visually, but the added-on physics engine is a bit unnecessary.

    It's very hands-on as well, which is a plus.

    @JudgeChuck Would agree the first set up looks pretty good despite the size discrepancies.  I suppose Lego seems beyond doing this style of space themed sets but I think it would be fun if we had something similar again.

    oooh, i like that.
    1st one looks best.
    try using the layout from the 1st image but maybe move the Exosuit closer to the spaceship spaceship spaceship!

    I think that sets of this particular style are just too simplistic for today's market, unfortunately. I do love the detail in modern sets, such as Benny's ship, but there's a lot to be said for the clean lines of the older ones.

    Fauch said:

    Yes, just a bit! It's an incredible ship, from that perspective and I really enjoyed putting it together again but, in some ways, it doesn't have the elegance of the originals.

    Are they on your operating system? For me they're fairly good when dealing with objects in the foreground, but with background objects there's a pretty serious distance blur that can be frustrating. I had to install a mod (I think it's called "glasses") to fix this issue, and I have to run diagnostics about once a year to see if it needs an update. And that's just one of several glitches I've run into!

  • MattsWhatMattsWhat Studley, UKMember Posts: 1,643
    ^not so much really. Pretty uniform, and excellent colour reproduction.  The only glitch so far is that they seem to deteriorate while drinking.  I think this might be a variation of the glasses mod that you spoke of.

    ^ I have the issues with resolution too, have to use a magnifying glass for parts identification quite often. Bigger issue is for me is defragmenting - it just goes on and on and on...

  • FauchFauch FranceMember Posts: 2,363
    too bad those glitches are present whatever the program you use.
  • Penkid11Penkid11 Member Posts: 783
    My issue with the program is that it constantly updates with a larger library. These updates aren't free either...

    OR when the seek time for parts gets too high since you need to shift around a bunch of boxes to access one or when you get some escapist parts that disappear in some gap where you cannot reach em

    just got done with #21303 Wall-E.
    he is bigger then you think he is going to be, and his box is bigger then i was expecting.
    i am happy with it but a bit sad that the only place i could find for him was at the back of the shelf behind Ecto-1, in a dark corner.
    i think the way his head comes together was the biggest shock for me. there is no part bigger then a 4x6 plate used in the head.
    the way the eyes are done is cool. i have spent weeks trying to workout how that part was made. yes i know i could have look at the online Instructions at lego.com.
    but i don't like doing that on set's i plan to buy, i like the surprise when i build them.
    all in all i am happy and a he is a good buy even when he is full price. as i know a number of the forum members picked him up when Argos had him on sale. you lucky people.

    Built 75103 tonight. Wasn't to keen on how they did the ramp structures that are "supposed" to connect the ramp to the transport. However I did upgrade mine with a pirate cannon on top for extra firepower with 2 blasters attached. Currently have the resistance fighters piloting and in the gunners seat till i get some more stormtroopers.

    Worked on roads for the above mentioned layout until I ran out of 1x2 tiles. The building footprint is set but I am going to move some buildings around. The Fire Brigade will go over where the Market Street is on the end, the DO will slide into that spot and the GBHQ will sit near the depot so that it can open and display the interior.

    ^^ It had never occurred to me to build a road out of tiles.  That is an impressive layout.

    I wish I had the space for that size Lego table.  You're obviously a model train guy... this is the scenery-light train table I'very been working on for 10+ years.

    I've just finished #10251 Brick Bank, which I picked up at the weekend.

    All-in-all it was a very enjoyable build, but I especially enjoyed the little washing machine / safe deposit box module.

    I can understand why people think that it could have done with being bigger, but it's a very good-looking building.

    I now need to dismantle all my Classic Space sets, so that I can set up all my modulars together on the dining room table!

    i know others have said this and this is what i am planning to do my self but to make it "bigger" (read as higher) you can buy a 2nd copy of the model and add in the 1st floor to make it 3 floors tall. this will work well for me as i will use all the other part from the 2nd copy for MOC-ing with. i hope to by the end of the year to have a nice little street of buildings on display, only time will tell how it turns out in the end.
