I am deep into building this exquisite gem. But, I can't help wondering what a joy it would be to build a 10,000 brick machine (something like this crane) full of hundreds and hundreds of gears and lifting arms. A machine so massive and complex that it would challenge the most dedicated of AFOLs. I would find a second job to pay for all the parts.
I truly hope that this genuis, or any other genius out there, has thought about it and is considering it.
Can you just imagine what an heirloom it would be?
Hi, Please can you help? I have matched up the parts to the photos on Flickr before starting to build the Carver. However I am left with two half pins I can't allocate! There are 4 half pins on the parts list. I think two of them are used to mount the transparent round plates for the side lights - where do the other two belong?
Really great design, just finished the build last week. This was my first non standard build, I had to purchase the 42009 as a set, the rest of the components came from brick owl, eBay, and the lego store. I've really enjoyed the whole processes. And I would not of done it without seeing your design on YouTube. So just wanted to say well done and thank you, and I can't wait to build your ultimate 8043!!
