I have decided to create this topic to show you my lastest creation because one topic per creation is not very good, I have already lot of page to manage (but thanks David, to have featured some of my best creations ;)

My latest truck : Unimog V4 :

I am in love with the cab of this truck, very realistic and well built.

Cool! Would the new 8110-tires be too big?

Regards,

Gerhard

I built it with the 8110-tires and looks good, thank you again Nico.

Probably a picture? :wink:

Nice Unimog, Nico!! I guess this one will be a participant in our next TrTr-event in Belgium. Although, a driver used your Trial Jeep on our previous event and the jeep really needed an extra reduction. Other than that he did a good job. He ended 4th out of 12. Not too bad :thumbup:

That's very cool. I could never imagine having RC legos. I own a couple Traxxas RC models and I bash the hell out of them. Then again, I guess the Lego RC stuff wouldn't go as fast. Very nice truck though. I'd be interested to see any updates on it.

I really like this new trend (or is it new) of making a single thread to collect what you are building and how you make progress.

It is a nice looking 'mog, I would love to see some more electrified functionality.

Jeep Differentials cracks because of the 12th gear inside, what it is impossible to figure out. With the unimog, it is 3 times faster and the gears can't crack, the motor stalls. the differential is good for turning abilities but it is quite difficult to anticipate the diff's sliding. Again rammacco, many thanks for the offer but I can't be in belgium at this meeting, too bad ! I hope you will create a post or topic to see Trial Truck in motion during this meeting.

I've built the chassis of the Jeep as well. I like the live-axle construction very much.

I removed the differentials and replaced them with knob-wheels, but in my chassis, I still hear gears cracking, when the XL-motor must deliver much power. I still haven't found out why.

It looks just like the actual thing. The engine is magic, with the working pusher rods :classic:

Thanks !

I am working on the rear of the Morgan. It is quite difficult, not because of the shape, but because of the homogeneity of the constructions ! I am trying to mix flex / panel and classic beam design.
