Vintage Technic 857 : Motor Bike ( Sidecar ) reloaded
Hi Technic-Fans, I've uploaded very old news: the 857 sidecar set of '79, but with quite a bit of mods all around...

Enjoy, comments welcome.

Currently, real life takes it's toll, but I am very happy with my not-so-a-joke TrackedTrike, and the 1929 Fatasse LandSpeed Record Motorcycle is righjt here. I suck at photography. There is another view on here.

I buy on BrickLink

As for anyone who could vaguely be interested, I downloaded LDD.exe that I am able to run on my Linux Boxes over Wine. You'd have to copy the file 'setup.exe' that you downloaded into your ~Home/.wine/drive_c/windows directory and launch it from there. If you know you have Wine but do not have a .wine directory in your home folder, then you must run winecfg to create one, and checks that it creates a drive_c (a fake C drive for the windows based software). I noticed Wine being unresponsive over Gnome with Compiz enabled, but I use Enlightenment DR16 as window manager and its better. Main issues to expect are errors in displaying toolbars & menus; I did compare with KDE and the issues are the same. I do have an hardware-accelerated graphic card tough. Everything works fine, saving/loading, scene mode with explosions, all the stuff; really only annoyance is the titlebar and menubar being sometimes blacked out, you'd have to click in the "shwartz" to pop menus.

Hardcore Linux/Virtual Lego fans would surely recommend alternatives, such as LDRaw.org (didn't work here under wine nor following the install tutorial under Linux) or LeoCAD (boringly complicated). I am very happy with MLCAD which does a good job with the Wine emulator; it's not perfect but works more intuitively. For rendering at least, LDView does operate in native Linux mode, and that's just great.

Not a joke. Funky I am on both sides... But Linux is very buidling-blocks oriented anyway..

Cheers.
