As a kid I played alot with studfull Lego Technic some 15 years ago. For some reason last fall i decided to take up my old hobby and bought the 8043 set. It was truly fun to see how much the Technic theme has developed during my “dark ages”. The main change was of course the transition to studless beams, and the principle of “odd width” chassis. Of course the Power Functions with IR was a great surprise to. As a kid, remote control was a main feature of all my creations. At that time, however, “remote” meant connected with multiple wires and pneumatic hoses.
Much inspired by Sariel, I decided to launch my own website/blog for sharing my Lego Technic creations.
