Henjin_Quilones posted a topic in Guilds of HistoricaThe Hand of Corruption Catapult Wheel A build for the Spire in Book II, Challenge V, Category B At a Hand of Corruption camp near the edge of the Moruth Swamplands, where the Spire forces were congregating for an attack on the Resistance capital of Abyssian, work was underway on a new type of siege weapon, a multiple-shot catapult wheel, capable of firing six shots per minute with an experienced crew manning her. The uruks of the Hand were just now putting the finishing touches on the masterpiece of destructive engineering. The blacksmiths get no rest, beating out nails and pieces of the frame with skillful blows of their hammers. Guards keep anyone unwanted away. The machine itself: ________________________________________________________________ ................................................................................................................................ Wow, barely got this together... of course I did not start until after supper on the 19th, though my main focus was on my Alliance build. C&C welcome. I did not realize until editing that a pile of wheels had fallen into the swamp, but oh well. The Spire needed some love.
MariusL posted a topic in LEGO TownHello Ladies and Gentlemen! I like to show you my articulated off-highway transporter with the Mobile Paper Plane Launching Unit (MPPLU). The features of the vehicle are: - Articulated Off-Highway vehicle with pendulum axles - Large cab with little kitchen and 2 beds - Large storage hold for tools at the rear of the cab - Powerful winch for Self-loading capability of different platform- or skid-mounted equipment Features of the mobile paper plane launching unit: - Catapult 24 studs long for paper planes format A6 and A7 - Knuckle boom crane - Telemetry boom - Large hold for accessory - Control room - Motorcycle For the transporter the articulated, terra-tired wheeled carriers from Foremost, for example Delta 3 or Commander C, inspired me. With the help of the winch, the vehicle is capable to self-load different types of platform-mounted Equipment. Usually the winch is located on the platform but I found one old photo of a Foremost Delta 3 were the winch is located in the aft of the front carriage, right in front of the Joint. The cab is equipped with three seats, a little kitchen and a folding double bed. Beside the MPPLU there exists a simple platform with rear live roll for transport operations, for example parts for the cable crane. Pendulum axles the rear live roll The MPPLU is skid-mounted and consists of the starter, the control room, the engine room, a boom with tracking equipment, a crane and storage space. Plenty of space in the control room. The table can be used as a bed too. The starter can be dismounted easily and makes a lot of fun as handheld paper plane catapult. The vehicle is optimized for playability and no scale model. Loaded with a skid mounted tank Erecting a skid mounted tank More photos you can see on flickr. I am interested what you think! Kind regards Mario
Hi, guys ! There're a lot of aircraft carrier mocs out there, so I thought I could introduce my catapult system. The main catapult mechanism is simply a winch plus a clutch. (powered by one L motor) I used another L motor & 2 actuators to control the JBD. The acceleration is quite fast considering I am using only one rubber band. You may also attach more rubber bands if you have heavier fighter Jet mocs or RC planes. Here is the video as always ! [/media] [/media]
