Never seen that, Does it play though?

Anyway, Day 112, Set 42105. It’s a boat
Wasn’t really bothered about it, but it is surprisingly big. Lots of beams and gears, and only 20 quid in Tesco. Bought this week.

It actually does float, and I have no idea how I’m going to display it.

Day 113
Set 42112, cement mixer.

One of my recent sets.

Apart from the 2 piece barrel which could have been made from a lot more, it’s a good build. 8 wheel with 4 wheel steering. Working pistons.
Throgh the selection gears, the barrel either doesn’t turn at all, turns as the wheels turn or turns using a handle on the other side.

These are some older, smaller sets I missed out of the list, just because there’s not much in them.

I’m off to Wales for a weeks holiday, so I’ll leave you with a couple of Harry Potter themed sets.
Hedwig the owl and Fawkes the Phoenix. Both are display pieces and both feature flapping wings when the handles are turned.

Back again. Lost count on the days.
Now a few recent purchases. First up, ended up with two of these… set 42102, Mini Claas tractor. I really want this one’s big brother!

Tractor has steering, and the tool blades rotate. Has a lifting lever.
The second official model also has steering and spinning blades.

Well, I haven't logged in for a while (a mix of work and family issues) but I've finally caught up with your posts. How did you find time for work when all those needed building?

Took me forty plus years to build them.

The little ones are mere minutes. Other ones can take hours.
Depends if they’re new…. In numbered bags and you’re following a printed book….
The eBay purchases tend to come in one bag, so you need to sort the parts first or rummage through a 1000 black parts looking for one black pin.
Then there’s squinting looking at online instructions and you can’t tell if the price is black, dark grey or some shade of green…

Just while I’m here…. I’ll add a few more in the coming days. Recent Facebook purchases and one competition prize!

This is an old one I got in a box of random parts… there’s at least 7 sets in various stages of build until I find the necessary parts required.
Set 8824, hovercraft. Propellors turn when pushed forward on wheels, and also pivot when steering.
Special parts in this set, the rubber bumpers around the edge, and the modified bricks that they clip onto.

Set 42099, 4x4 off roader

Uses the new Bluetooth control hub with special motors to give 4 wheel drive power and steering. New technology gives an admittedly large set a very high price.
The smartphone app gives movement, and also reads angles from the servo motors.

Out the same box of bits as the hovercraft on #176, I managed to build this. Set 8862.
Is missing a front wheel, so I’ve pinched one from something else just to get the photo.
It’s pretty big. Pneumatics work ok. Steering is from the light on top of the cab.

So where was this, @Moley ? ... Were you working in a toy shop, or some toy collectors place??

My most recent purchase was a drive to Falkirk, got something ive wanted... but also 4 others that ive already got.
I must have about £500's worth of doubles to sell off.
