Featuring 6×4 drivetrain with pendular suspension and a pneumatic tipper, this is a solid model. Good looks to boot. A glance through his gallery shows that, among other things, makorol built a rather functional-looking skidsteer loader.

Remember this? Well, it turns out that nico71 has a blog, but it’s in French. Google does a pretty good job of translating, though. He claims to make a model every week or so, which would make him very prolific. Go read up on some of his past models; the descriptions really add to the pictures.
This all came to my attention because he just uploaded pictures of his excavator to Brickshelf.

Remember 6059? Neither do I. Nevertheless, Sibley has made a tribute to it- definitely worth checking out.

The noble X-wing is probably one of the most built ships ever. Even LEGO has done it five times. Why is it so popular? Because it rocks, duh. A quick search on Brickshelf shows that there may be a correlation between people who can’t spell “X-wing” and, *ahem*, sub-par models. However, there are plenty of great versions of this wonderful spacefighter. Take, for example, mikepsiaki’s excellent rendition; the unorthodox canopy is brilliant. Nabii, MarkChan, and Niko have all done good versions, as well. You may notice that all four of these models utilize at least a couple of clever techniques that set them apart from the rest.
Why did I just type that all out? I dunno. Let me make it up to you with this.
