Peterbilt 379 & CAT C15


Since I was a child I has been a fan of big trucks, and specially of American style trucks(in Spain is strange to see trucks with long noise).

For this MOC I have chosen one of the most charismatic and representative models of these trucks: a Peterbilt 379.

Land-Rover Defender 110

Available complete instructions!! More info here

After many months of work through the last year, I present you my new supercar: a Land-Rover Deffender (110 version).

Yes, for me it is a supercar, it is not a truck trial or a normal 4x4. Yes, I know, it is very high and square, but it has many advanced features and solutions, and for me it is enought to call it supercar.

Making of: Porsche 911 (997) Turbo Cabriolet PDK

To celebrate the first anniversary of my Porsche 911, I show you the same as I did with the Veyron some months ago: a timeline of car development.

The design time for this car was specially long, because the car is very very complex and I needed some time to build others MOC as the Lizard 8x8 or huge Bridge-layer (not presented here) to keep mi head clear.

The design of this car started after finish the Veyron.
Initially the idea of ​​building a second car so fast it was only for one reason: use in it all the mechanisms developed for the Veyron but I couldn't use, however some time after it was much more than that ...

Also if you look closely you can see things never show before...

Modular Platform System (MPS)

Probably the most popular vehicles to build MOCs are the Supercars.
We all love cars and the more fast and sports better, but if someone wants to make a Technic Supercar in big size and some complexity (scale 1/10 is the most used) and you don't have a good knowledge of the techniques, build it can be very complicated and end up as hopeless.


This system was created with the idea of ​​helping all those people who want to make a supercar at approx. scale 1/10 and still not have enough knowledge to start, or want to make a car with more advanced specs as Ackerman steering, camber angle and do not know how to do it.

GBC Balls Reedition. Please TLC, Bring them Back


Directly from Technic Delicatessen


Due to demand in events for GBC circuits, it could be a great idea bring back this balls.

A lot of examples of the best modules are in this Blog, with GBC Tag:

Bricklink prices are horrible for large quantities, and new GBC builders don't have chance to have them for his first module.

I'm sure AFOL and TFOL even will pay for a set with a standard pack for a GBC module.
Even if TLC consider produce it in new colors and moulds it will be awsone rainbow coloured modules or mindstorms NXT colour sensor.

Please, leave you support in CUUSOO (Write price for 30 balls, a standard hopper capacity)


Thanks!
