  1. Indeed very clean cab.
  2. Massive! And lots of cool functions! Great My advice, reduce the volume of all sounds in your editing program, to be same or a bit lower than the music volume. It might be better.
  3. Thanks, Grum! Yeah, time is limiting factor! Tnx! Spades are in wip, they have awkward angles, but i am using wedge plates. Hopefully they will be able to cut through soil (1x1 round plates and 1x1 round bricks) and load a tree from a glass full of same soil! Thanks, man! For the curently installed cylinders, this: SIDE CYLINDER - adjustable trailer coupler, left and right, when stand next to tree, this movement rotate a bit the whole trailer left and right, allowing precise positioning of the blades around the three, FRONT CYLINDER - adjustable trailer coupler, extend and retract, this movement push or pull a bit the whole trailer closer or further from the tree, allowing precise positioning of the blades around the three, I did not explain well, i know, basically these cylinders allow for precise positioning of the trailer, when hooked to a car....take a look at this video at 0:40 and at 1:11 It is different manufacturer, but they function the same: VIDEO of positioning of the trailer.
  4. Hi all, A bit late to the party...but here it goes...I searched for something that is unusual, has lots of hydraulic functions and look good built with old Technic bricks and plates, with skeletal frame (with no ModelTeam finish). My entry for this contest is Tree Spade Trailer, by Vermeer. A tree spade is a specialized machine that mechanizes the transplanting of large plants, including large bushes and small or medium trees. The machine consists of a number of blades that encircle the tree, digging into the ground and then lifting the entire tree, including its roots and soil, out of the ground and replanting or transplanting the whole tree in the designated area. Here is a very short video of random real Tree Spade operating: So, the Lego model. The model has to be in my favorite 1:13 scale, to fit with my all other builds. That soze gives some room to accommodate all the functions and sturdy frame. The trailer should have 10 pneumatic functions, and 12 pneumatic cylinders (all V2): adjustable trailer coupler, left and right, when stand next to tree, this movement rotate a bit the whole trailer left and right, allowing precise positioning of the blades around the three, adjustable trailer coupler, extend and retract, this movement push or pull a bit the whole trailer closer or further from the tree, allowing precise positioning of the blades around the three, outrigger up/down, single outrigger feet secure the trailer at the back, between the tires/ Front part of the trailer is securely hooked to the driving vehicle, spade section tilt to vertical position spade section lower to the ground level spade section "hugging" the tree blade 1 dig/retract blade 2 dig/retract blade 3 dig/retract blade 4 dig/retract Progress so far, very WIP, will change a chassis a lot, spade is also WIP, I will make a full tree also, with round bricks and lots of leaves...:
  5. Looking good! How does it perform when weight is not centered in the middle of it? Trouble starts when there is more (lots more) weight on one side of the turntable, on a big crane or heavy excavator.
  6. PRO: Proper place for MT Brick-Build models. Easier to find. Similar building techniques all in one forum. CON: Much less attention and replies, MT is not very popular, Technic forum is one of the most visited forums, and separating MT to a new forum will probably leading to losing lots of Technic guys who commented and engaged in posting. Inevitably confusion of where to post model with Brick-Built (MT) body and Technic mechanisms inside.
  7. [quote name='Offroadcreat1ons' timestamp='1474155238' post='2659632'] Is it allowed to cut one pneumatic hose down to the length of an existing hose? [/quote] You can cut both original Lego pneumatic hoses and 3rd party pneumatic hoses.
  8. [quote name='Technic Jim' timestamp='1474147039' post='2659555'] What is the diameter of Lego pneumatic hoses? [/quote] Around 2 mm / 0.08 inch inside, 4 mm / 1.6 inch outside [quote name='efferman' timestamp='1474147540' post='2659561'] Thanks for this hint, never knew this part is available in other colours than trans orange. When the length doesnt fit, is it permitted to cut it? [/quote] Since it is regular Lego part and not a pneumatic hose, it is not allowed to cut it. But is since it is flexible, it should be very doable to flex the excess out of the sight.
  9. You can use third party hoses that are same as a Lego pneumatic hoses. Using other diameters and sizes would count as using third party parts, which is not allowed. If you are referring to the big hose on the arm, just suggestion, but you can use original Lego parts: [img]http://www.bricklink.com/PL/x153.gif?0[/img] [b]Part x153 Aero Tube 32 x 3 x 2 1/3[/b] I think that will fit almost perfectly :)
  10. I would say keep working on AT-AT, it is too good to abandon it. And it might have a wow effect when voting starts just because of the name and how it looks!
  11. [quote name='Technic Jim' timestamp='1473444232' post='2654499'] Just to check, if one were to build a crane, would said person be allowed to operate the turntable and turn it manually, or is that against the rules. Also, would the hook be able to be raised and lowered by a string. Thank you very much, Jim [/quote] It is allowed, but I would advice against implementing lots of manual functions. And I don't like the idea of main function (lifting the load via the hook) will be operated manually. Main function(s) of your model should be pneumatic.
  12. [quote name='juGSI16V' timestamp='1473189102' post='2652482'] I wish to participate in my first competition on Eurobrick, but I have one question: the Lego air tank is allowed for this contest? [/quote] Great! Yes, it is allowed. Have fun!
  13. [quote name='IA creations' timestamp='1472924107' post='2650614'] Are we allowed to use the PF swich to control the motor that drives the pump ? [/quote] Yes, switch for compressor motor is allowed. [quote name='KvM' timestamp='1473000814' post='2651061'] A pneumatic engine (LPE) is allowed to be used when operated by a hand pump? [/quote] LPE is allowed, sure! You can power it with hand pump, or with a compressor. Just don't copy design from someone else 1:1.
  14. [quote name='KvM' timestamp='1472916595' post='2650531'] Can I get a final answer on whether it is allowed to create a vacuum by driving a normal cylinder? Otherwise I have to come up with something else. [/quote] No, sorry, it is not allowed. Motors can only be used to drive a compressor.. Your idea is great and unique, but it does not fit the contest rules.
  15. [quote name='jorgeopesi' timestamp='1472891349' post='2650333'] ...front part and arm are strong but they would be stronger using the small large cylinders, I realized today. Are they enough strong to lift the arm?. [/quote] I think they should be enough if you don't want to lift load in the bucket. They would even look more realistic in this scale.
