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.
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- V12 engine- 5+R all wheel drive transmission gearbox- functional steering wheel- opening leaf doors- opening hood
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.
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.

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.
