Hey, I'm going to be gone for close to 2 weeks. I'm going on a road trip from Ontario to Nova Scotia, on the eastern coast of Canada. I quite recently got my learners license, so It's going to be very scary driving that far. I figured I'd do it though as I'll get to see much of my extended family, and I'll get alot of practice driving.
The result of this has been that I've been quite busy. Before I leave though, I'm going to watch Transformers Age of Extinction in the theater. It looks like it's going to be great, and I hope it is. I also had to slightly rush these past couple of MOCs, from beginning to end. So sorry, but I really wanted to get the stuff out before I leave on Saturday.
Something else big that happened to me is I bought the 42008 Service Truck Technic set. Highly recommended. It comes with a great variety of pieces, large and small mechanical actuators, pneumatic pieces, 8(!) tires, a battery box and motor, transmission pieces, etc. If you want a Technic set to buy for that kind of stuff this is it. Especially considering that it's not terribly expensive for a Technic set with electronics. In Canada, Technic sets go on sale a few times a year, so I got mine $30 off. For that price it's really worth it.
Speaking of the Service Truck, it allowed me to build my last Hero Factory Racer for the foreseeable future. Probably my most popular series(and of course it's fan art), so with a heavy heart, I bid the series goodbye. Hopefully someday it comes back.
Beyond that I don't have much to say, so I'll leave you with a peek into my nerdiest, weirdest hobby. Paper Airplanes...
But like, really serious advanced paper airplanes. I uploaded a design to my stash to show my uncle a while ago, but since it's up you guys can try one of my paper airplanes. Behold, the F-33 Seagull
If anyone seriously tries this, just set your printer to borderless mode, with no overhang. Printers are stupid and make life harder than it has to be, but that's how you do it. See you guys next time!
