SEA HARRIER Mk.I
Finally I found some time to take pictures of my latest built plane which returned from the Czech LEGO forum exhibition a month ago.
It has been built at the end of February, but stayed closed in the museum for nearly four months.
Dimensions 69x43x16.5 cm. Penumatically retractable main and side landing gears. The red light on the top of the fuselage changes the nozzle angle. Joystick hidden under the panels on the top of the fuselage controls ailerons and elevons and the red lever next to it controls the rudder. The 12 tooth bevel at the bottom opens and closes the air brake. Two competition cannons underneath the wings are the only armanent of this jet plane.
Video can be seen here

Nice use of pneumatic hoses as flex axles. Do I see flick missiles under wings?

Good job!

The flex axles cannot be bent that easily and the other advantage is that you can cut the pneumatic hose to the exact length you need. I found them very useful especially when building my Ford GT.
As I wrote above, there are just two cannons, no flick missiles.

@ grohl:  I like the Harrier "jump jet"!  Had you seen the A-10 Warthog and P-51 Mustang Lego Technic aircraft on BrickFrenzy?

I have been working on the picture instructions when disassembling my Ford GT 40 Mk.IV after its return from the exhibition. If you are interested you can find them here
The whole car has got 1544 elements in total and weighs 1.6 koligrams and features independent wheel suspension, 1M motor for steering, 2XL motors for wheel drive, 3 sets of PF lights, opening doors and bonnet and adjustable driver seat. If you lack some pictures it is because some parts are build the same, just the other way round (e.g. the rear axles). There are definitely some places for improvement. I know about at least three things I am not satisfied with.
Here is the VIDEO

American Carroll Shelby designed the Ford GY40 Mk IV, which won the 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race four years in a row (1966-1969).  This Lego Technic MOC captures the lines of the car well.   :thumbup:

This Ford looks really really good. What (transparent) parts did you use for the headlights ?

DludersThank you, my aim was to build a car with dynamic shape and lines.

ZbljBecause of the XL motors, I was very limited with space and surprisingly after a few test this worked best.

It looks like trailing arm suspension to me.

My 24th alternate model of 8271. Nothing special and no functions. I am kinda running out of new ideas what to build next from this set. Any suggestions?

Perfectly right, the yellow connectors, bushes and some thin liftarms really need replacement.

For this month's Technic Challenge I decided to use one of my MOCs that has been built for the Czech LEGO Forum exhibition. Maybe you have not seen it yet, so here comes the BEAST.

I had a simillar idea, but I decided not to build, because technically its not a a tracked vehicle. Runs fast!
