Technic sets smaller than 100 parts

Browsing through the rich history of Lego Technic sets I discovered that there are a lot of small sets. Scanning all these 'small' technic sets I decided that I would consider sets with 100 or less parts as small.

Lego Master Mind

Reading our Dutch equivalent of Cosmopolitan..., hmm should I mention this at all in this article intro? Anyway reading the Linda. of November 2015 I ran into a picture of Mastermind game. This is a game from the 70-ties, which immediately spawned memories of my youth spending time at my grand parents. My grandpa was a mathematician in both profession and hobby. So he teached us all kind of fun number-games or logic-games. One of them was Master Mind.

Technic Set History

Since a few weeks I am busy collecting photo material for Technic Set history. This is a very interesting action. going through the history of Lego Technic. I do have already this idea for a longer time to collect all technic Lego sets and put them in a picture collection. Currently I finished the 70-ties and 80-ties.

With this collection/way of representation you should be able to filter on type of set like farm, car or race or filter by year. Currently you can do that via menu 'Pages' and select either 'Technic Sets' or 'Set Time Line'. I only concentrate on sets or idea books so no educational sets or replacement part sets.

Technic Lego 855 Mobile Crane

As I wrote before where I ran into set 857 Motorcycle I rebuild the 855 Mobile Crane. In 2009 I picked up Technic Lego again as a hobby. However it started all in 1980 when I got the 8860 as a birthday present. So I do have some history with Technic Lego. This set is again amazingly great considering the limited technic parts available in that time. First thing is the color scheme with just the basic colors bleu, red, yellow, black and grey for technic parts. Unfortunately I couldn't build the set precisly in the same colours. Find the differences :-).

The Lamborghini Aventador LP 720-4 50° Anniversario is a limited and numbered series of 200 units worldwide and thus one of the most exclusive models ever produced in the history of Lamborghini.

The model features:
- full independent suspension

This model is including free building instructions which are very detailed and reveals the genius design of this car. The lines of this care are really greatly mimiced. With some very creative ways of using certain parts he made it possible to get it as close as possible. Like using panel fairings for the engine cover.

Watch through the pictures and the buidling instructions to see this yourself.

Sporty Snow Tracker

This week this Sporty snow mobile catched my eye. This is a compact motorized tracked vehicle. I like the way the engine is connected to the tracks via an angled compact transfer from the engines to the tracks. The images for the buidling instructions are clear enough. You can find more details here.

BMW R-12 motor cycle

Every week I browse the internet for information on Technic Lego. Last week I ran into this BMW R-12 motor cycle with sidecar. This model is originally from 1939 a real classic. What I like in this moc is the creative way of building by Miguev. Reading the text it is surprising that this model is even foreseen with remote control. Comparing it with the images this one has great similarities and is immediately recognizable.

More details you can find here BMW r-12 sidecar.

Technic Lego 857 Motor Cycle

Lately I was working on the Lego© Technic history pages and run into the 857 Motorcycle from 1979. In fact a great model for the time. So my kids and I have a lot of Lego so first investigated if we would have the majority of parts in right color. This turned out to be positive. I was stunned by the complexity for this age and 'puberty' of Technic Lego©.
