Model Optimization: a 42083 Showcase

In 2018 the Bugatti Chiron came out in LEGO Technic. It’s quite a complex model, but very dense and seems inefficient and consequently negatively impacts some of its functions. Time for a redesign thus where the starting point was to keep the same modular build with almost identical interconnection points, and keep the overall looks […]

Big Rig

Classified as Top Secret case 10262: 007’s alternative vehicle of choice. The request from Brixtar was to review the new 10262 Aston DB5 Bond edition. However because Brixtar is all about re-using the bricks you have, the request was if I could build an alternative model and from this point of view review the model […]

This meant many articulation joints, but […]

Formula Racer

Let me present this highly detailed alternate model, a Formula racer from the 10242 Mini Cooper, a Creator Expert set. It’s not based after a particular model, although it certainly has resemblance with the Jaguar F1 cars from a decade ago, also due to the colours. It furthermore includes a lot of the features from […]
