Concave belt module

This is the latest Lego GBC module from Team Morente, I'm sure that it will look better after adding the decoration, at this moment the construction and the mechanisms look so fine, with the route that the gbc balls do ant the "concave" curvature of the belt in the elevation section.

Mesmerizing LEGO GBC mechanism "Type 0.5"

This mechanism could be improved to a spectacular GBC spiral lift module, with adding some kind of pump to feed the module in the middle and the exit gate at the top, I hope that Jackal82JPN do that soon.

I've seen bricks you minifigs wouldn't believe.

Lego Blade Runner

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I've watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.

Lego Blade Runner

This Blade Runner scene is my latest creation, so yes, I build Moc's and I'm not only in technic...

Originally made for a little contest-game of my LUG about guessing films with vignettes, I'm pretty proud of it, not so of the photoshop effect...

The big LEGO TECHNIC Land-Rover Defender

The latest car of Sheepo is here! And it's a Land Rover defender!

It has so many functionalities... so best see the video or visit Sheepo's website where you will find all the detailed explanations.

Personally I'm very well impressed with this "supercar", mainly by the clean of the modular construction and all the realistic details all around both in mechanisms and aesthetics, I can't wait to play with it in next Spanish meetings...

Han's Twin wheel modification for 9397 Logging Truck:

The last instructions to "upgrade" official sets is to apply 'Twin Wheels' and a double differential unit on the rear axles (2nd and 3rd axle) at the 9397 Logging Truck, whereof the wheel width stays the same as the original set.

LEGO 9397 Logging Truck

It's remarkable that this is only the last high-quality instructions in a long row, its very recommendable to check the other ones to improve the playability and functionality of the sets you may already have.

LEGO 4 Original GBC Modules

It's not usual to find a new GBC module, and it's very hard to find 4 modules with original variations of existing concepts or totally new mechanisms, this is that Jackal82JPN has done, wroted as description: "My first Practical GBCs.", for sure we will wait a second and more GBC's.
