Due to a poke from Kerm on his latest stream, I decided to hunker down in my room for 3 hours and re-shoot a bunch of footage of my LEGO city that I chocked full of lights! I spent all day editing the video and I'm fairly pleased with it. It's a heck of a lot better than my [url=https://1drv.ms/v/s!Al_ZukYl7XyyhUs_xS8lZXvXV7Nr]old one[/url]. I've got a few things to change (ie improving some transitions and adding a credits screen), but this is what the main video should look like! Please tell me what you think of it!

After shooting, I realized I forgot to light up one floor, but oh well, maybe you wont notice. Rolling Eyes

I may make another video that features the design of the power grid and how everything works together.
Whooaa!!! That's really cool, TheL!!
I finished the video! I'm not too happy with the thumbnail, but it's the best I could come up with. I've added the video to the first post of this thread!
Another Christmas, another LEGO set. This year I received the LEGO Bugatti Chiron set!

Time to update my log:
Note: This is in USA dollars; time is only measuring active build time, not breaks or sleep.
2014: Racer (Formula One): $???: ~5 hours to build
2016: Mercedes-Benz Arocs 3245: $230: ~9 hours to build
2017: Porsche 911 GT3 RS: $300: ~11 hours to build
2018: Bugatti Chiron: $350: ~14 hours to build

This took me the most time to build any LEGO set, but the final result looks spectacular, especially after I installed the Lightailing custom light kit!
I've got a full album of pictures here on Imgur but I've posted some of my favorite images.




Compared to the Porsche set I got last year, this one was a bit less complex internally. The LEGO group seems to have optimized the paddle shift feature so it doesn't take up nearly as much space. But the outside was a lot more complex to do, it was quite a challenge making everything fit together and look good. I had trouble with that since I would occasionally accidental miss key steps in the instruction manual. Razz
Fortunately, I didn't mess up anything critical, the final product still looks fantastic and all the gears work great. Now I just have to find a place to display it...
Its been a while and during my last update, I added a construction light post that can be plugged into the power grid from anywhere! I got my main design from Aaron on a MOC forum but I modified it so it would actually work! Here's how it turned out:

It can turn 360 degrees so it doesn't matter which direction you need it pointed:


The wiring in the right picture (above) is pretty strange, but it somehow works and gives off a lot more light than I expected:


Another thing I did was add a second working stoplight, I figured it one light was one color, then stoplights perpendicular to that road would be the other so the wiring was pretty simple:

The wiring was so simple it even still works with my draw bridge track design!
I have a ton of Legos, but most of them are all taken apart Razz.
I do like to make Star Wars MOCs though.
Here are some pictures of my take on a TIE Interceptor (The blue is like an homage to older Lego TIE fighters... Plus I didn't have the right pieces in black Razz)



I'll probably post some other MOCs as I make them.
I need to take photos of my lego creations and post them here, i have some cool ones
Wow that looks really cool Jeffitus! I like the blue plates, great job recreating it!
Here's a project I did a long time ago, it utilizes the winch brick as a wind-up 'motor'.
