Dune Duster

12 posts in this topic

Usually i'm not a MOC builder. Only once every few years i can't help myself..

Looking at the Bandit by Biczzz Bandit i started my attempt in recreating that model. Surely it came out completely different but i had a fun time building it.

Had so much fun that i completely lost track of time...

Made a few pictures of it. So please check out my brikschelf Dune Duster Brickshelf (when public)

I'm still working on it (i'm trying to get a engine in), but i thought i might share it right now!

As a small sample i give you one picture in this post...

I like how the spare wheel does the steering, great work :classic:

EDIT: It looks like you are using the old Cybermaster colours, I am plan to use them too as my Cybermaster is kaput.

Thanks you guys!

:sweet:

But:

The choice of colours is all random. I used only spare parts (of Technic sets i don't like anymore). :grin:

After building this model i know one thing for sure: I need more parts!

I really like the tubular construction in both models :) Looks really light!

That is pretty cool. The only problem that I have had with building the body like that is the tendency for the axles to pull apart from the connectors. Good Job though. :thumbup:

Nice use of the axle connectors!

Nice design, too.

You should use different tires, at the front smaller, in the back bigger!

@zblj and @ Meatman:

The construction is quite sturdy. Yesterday it took a unvoluntairy dive off the table. (3feet/90centimetres down) Only two connetors came loose.

@Milan:

I know reallife Dunebuggy's have bigger rearwheels. I tried various combinations, but 4 of the same wheels i used seem to be the best looking solution. ( I don'thave that much sparewheels......)

The axle framework looks nice here. The overall style of the model reminds me of 8412 in that sense.

Added some additional pictures.

(See more on my Dune Buster Brickshelf when available)

I've made some small changes in the tubular-frame to make it even more sturdy.

(At least i hope...)

I loved the Biczzz Bandit buggy.

Your is no motorized and was made form parts and colours available, but has also is magic, and have to work with limited parts available increase the challenge.

I liked the wire frame structure, and the mixed colours makes it a funny buggy.

Glad to know that it's sturdy despite the fragile look of something mostly made from axles and connectors.

But since you consider it a WIP, keep up the good work. :thumbup:

Regards
