    This is very sad... Lego builder and collector republicattak has had his extensive Lego collection stolen and his creations destroyed.



    There is, however, a GoFundMe page that has been set up to help the guy rebuild his collection, which hopefully will go some way to making up for his loss.

    This is amazing:

    I'm also thinking about making a De Tomaso Pantera, but it's still a thought at the moment.

    I overhauled my old Group-C model. I decreased its width down to 16-wide to comply with the scale of my other cars, vastly improved steering, re-modeled the engine bay and did some minor works in the bodywork. I hope you guys like it!

    Felt like doing some mods on my Group-C car. I love wheel covers and ankle cutters. :dopey:

    Most of the time when I see youtube clips of people crying, complaining and feeling sorry for themselves, I can't stop and think get over yourself. But the video clip posted by @Touring Mars is so genuine that I can't stop feeling sorry for this guy. I'm so glad that stranger donated all that money so he can continue his hobby and passion.

    I'm going to see if his youtube account is active again and say something nice on his account. He deserves it.

    Poor guy.

    Working on a new fun little model, this is a digital render, have not build the model with real bricks yet as its not quite finished.

    Its a LEGO Minifigure-scale slagpot carrier.
    In steel production waste in form of slag accumulates, that is impurities like other metals and substances that need to be removed to produce high grade pure steel. The slag is dumped into slag pots that weigh several hundred metric tons fully loaded, and since the slag is very heavy and hot special equipment is needed to remove it. The pots are loaded onto large purpose built vehicles (or trains) which then transport the slag out of the steel mill into slag dump yards.

    Looks pretty nice, but shame it isn't the same scale as the GT3 RS they made. Seems to be a bit smaller.

    180 dollar means 180 euro. That's how we roll. But I like it :)

    Wheels don't bother me as much as the fish bowl headlights do. Still it's a great looking kit and $250AUD price tag isn't too bad.

    Looks like a Homemaker set like this:

    Not sure what the wheels go to, not enough pieces visible to make a guess. As well as to where the red drawers came from as they don't match any sets I've seen so far.

    My newest model. I've always found those gigantic hydraulic mining excavators used in coal mines really fascinating, so it was time to make one in LEGO.

    And thanks to the actuators LEGO made the excavator is fully functional!

    So here you go, 850 parts, LEGO minifigure-sized:

    Oh no. That's amazing. No please Lego, I stopped buying you forever ago. This and the Winter Village sets are too good.

    The 2019 Speed Champion sets are pretty nice, might pick up a few of these, most definitely the F40, which appears to be a dual set which you can build the standard F40 or the Competizone. Mini set also looks very nice.
