Hi, I have enlarged my collection of lego over the years, and I am enjoying learning from the great ideas of fellow enthusiasts to enhance my models. 
I have started putting some of my ideas onto this site via the Moc submission system, and hope to have some more on soon.

My store on Bricklink does not yet have any items for sale, but that might change as time goes on.

    Yes, it was such a small difference in size, yet its impact was big.

    Just had it pointed out to me by someone building this, that I have not shown very obviously how to attach the whole thing to the part where the linear acutators meet the boom. The solution is found on Step 912, page 166, book 2. Do not put in the blue 3L pin, but instead put a red 6L axle, then the boom strengthening part pivots at this point on the red 6L axle.
    enjoy

    Does look good! also it looks like an XL Linear Actuator, which should help bring the price of them down, since they currently are only available in the very expensive 42100 set, and this is not as expensive a set :)

    Hi Nathan
    I really like the way you have improved the search for parts section, though I have one suggestion which I would find very helpful. Could you please add a tab for the Technic Special category, as that is a category I will often default too, if I do not think a part I am looking for will be in any of the other more usual Technic sections. It is where you find the linear actuators, as obviously they will not be in the pneumatic section. The very rare Metal hooks that are no longer produced are found there too.
    Thanks

    Excellent review TobyMac :)
    I think I will for now just buy the XL linear actuators, when I find someone selling them. Currently they are not listed on bricklink.
    Maybe my wife might let me buy one next year, or if I can find a really good price etc.... Loved the OCD comment :) I expect my wife would have noticed that too :)
    Nice also to see that BuWizz works with the hubs. This should hence get around the problem of FOL's wanting to use the hubs and motors in their own MOCS?? As much as I would like both 42100 and some buWizzes, the prices are certainly a hinderance at the moment.
