hey guys,

you're far too fast. Keep up the fun :laugh:

I think the cabs need some pimping at the grille... But there are the limits of LDD...

Now comes the hard part... Chassis... Maybe I lend some ideas from effe's G-chassis...

Thanks effe...

I hope, that I get close enough... Yes, orange is very limited. But I'd like to try it. It would perfectly fit to the other two Mogs.

What do you mean with "real parts"?

Good project, I used to do first the motorized part and the last thing is the body.

jorge: I'm not that good with MOCs. For this project I'll buy one more 8110. And then I'll customize it's main parts as long as it fits the scale... Or as I said before, I'll try effe perfect G-chassis and then add the power and pneumatic functions.

Let's see...

You may want to look at the Liftarms on bricklink for your cab.:classic:

There are no 7,11,9 liftarms in orange on sale on bricklink.

I can not speak for everyone but I also started by MODs in my case the Enzo and Fiorano Ferraris but I modified the inside :laugh: the important thing is to learn little by little.

Jorge: yes, that's nearly my way. I'm glad that I managed to get the cab, that it slightly looks like the original. In my case that's the point pfno return, because I think, that a chassis is allways possible. Either copying and modding one or looking here for ideas :classic:

@alasdair: how dis you manage to get thos list in BL?

Thanks, never gone this way, but thanks for the hint...

And thanks again... But until the next order I'll wait some time, otherwise my wife might go crazy :blush:

And there are still some orders on the way :laugh:

Hi Tim,

thanks...

Hmm, I think I solved the problem with the missing parts. Yesterday evenig I changed the missing orange parts to black. It dosn't look so bad...

Now, there's still the other problem :laugh:

No, just kidding, my wife just laughs every time I go deep diving into Lego. She always says that it's too sad, that we only have daughters... I don't mind at all, so all the Lego is MINE :devil: .

Again THANKS!

Now I have to figure out a chassis... I don't think that I need the full suspension like the 8110 - maybe at the front axle. I'd like to add the same functions as 8110.
