Did anyone get the Vestas turbine?
I was tempted but actually have a full size one
Decided to go for the chiron for 245 + 10 cash back.
235 seemed a good price.
Over the past couple of months I finished a couple of the smaller CaDa models with my lad, firstly the Off-Road Crawler (C51041) which I've already mentioned comes with a pretty cool RC setup (on in one USB chargeable battery pack and receiver unit) and can be setup for speed or torque for climbing.
Then onto a small RC tank (C51018), fairly simple with just has a couple of motors for powering each of the tracks but it drives well.
So I've now built three CaDa models and quality wise I think these are the best non-Lego kits available, they use their own moulds (not straight copies of Lego) so all the pieces are labelled with CaDa and many whilst similar to Lego are designed slightly different, no issues with gears etc and the power functions work perfectly (actually better than Lego as non IR).
Impressed so much I've now picked up the larger tank they do, C61001W, which comes with loads of remote/power bits (5 motors, numerous receivers) so expecting that to be a fun build.
I noticed a new 911 rsr for sale at quite alot less than the gt3rs. Has anyone tried it?
I saw this built in the lego shop and to be fair it looked a lot better than the GT3, however I dare say it has less functions.
The piece count is far lower (1200 less), it’s smaller and doesn’t have the complex gearbox.
I also doubt it will come in that expensive box either.
The orange GT3 is also discontinued so if you want it buy it before it goes.
Love the look of the RSR 911 but along side the le mans prototype racer it seems overpriced - Porsche tax I'm assuming? I'll probably buy it though cos I'm a sucker!
I want it
Wish lego could be sold in MM
Why can't it?
Mods say no!
No reason given, they just hate us nerds
Thems the rules!
What's reasonable for it, asda have it for 200 and there maybe some additional cash bash too.
I paid £130 for mine new, I don't think it ever got much cheaper than that. It was often priced at £160.
I also paid £130 on that mega offer, £160 was the chapeast it was sustained at.
I got the Porg for £37 in Tesco the other day.
Yeah seems like the boat has already sailed on the porsche. Might skip it
I raided my mum's loft over Xmas and found my 2 massive boxes of lego i had when i was a kid. Loads of sets and technic stuff in it. Cleaned it all up and am currently 90% of the way through building my old 8865 test car technics kit using instructions online. Me and the wife have got really into it and the kids love it, so glad i got it out.
Looks like i'm missing 2 wheels and the piston blocks for the engine, where is the best place to get old spares?
My son just finished box one of the Chiron. I'm helping but not as mush as I thought I would have to. He's 10 so doing well!
Try Bricklink, you can usually get most on there.
