    Im pretty sure the old matchbox moulds went to airfix and heller. May be wrong though, I always wanted the old Hadley Page Victor but it was a horrible moulding. Thankfully Airfix have released a new one but its sodding expensive. An huge!

    I do like the Xanavi Nismo, you may want to keep an eye on JP199.co.jp an Hiroboy they often carry those an addons for them.

  • The Lego Nuclear chart. An hour of fun at a conference workshop.

    Basically the chart represents all the isotopes of all the elements in the periodic table. The height of the block is the energy of the isotope, the colour represents the type of nuclear decay. The funny thing is that if you drop a tennis ball from the highest point (Hydrogen) it bounces and lands at the lowest point (Iron), which is exactly what happens in a star

    Decided on taking a duplicated (roughly) contraption out...

    Created 'the black hole'... except it was a bit life less, so I built this. 3 weeks in the making.

    Next contraption ; something special.

    I re-hashed a module I made previously, making it (a bit) more efficient and compact.



    The long term plan is to re-shape the existing run making it a bit more reliable [speed is an issue - some modules are slower than others and the flow has bottle necks].
    Also - bigger, better.

    The above module was slow and now you can see it's much quicker. The odd ball escapee (as seen in the vid) has been cured.

    Last three Technic models I built are the Mercedes-Benz Arocs tipper wagon, the all terrain crane and the Land Rover Defender. Defender is still built up, will share a photo later.

    Loving the invention, @pinno .

    Cheers Ben.

    I don't do kits.

    Although, as i'm pretty new to Lego Technic, I could have done some kits just simply because you learn a lot.

    I have something in the pipeline that may not be the Hadron Collider but it's close.

    Both are. The swiss crocodile locomotive we fitted with the latest type of motor that is bluetooth controlled. The robot is programmable, a bit like switch or a bbc microbit but with much simplified. It can be controlled like a remote or programmed to react to objects etc with its light/colour sensor. I'll dig out a video.

    Yes, I was thinking of purchasing the Smart brick but for ball contraptions, I want a Mindstorms EV3.
