Sorry about the less than helpful topic title but let's face it, there's only one Lego Wheelchair in this forum.
I've been trying to build a Lego wheelchair for a while but haven't been happy with the results so thought I'd try LDD. I've not used LDD very much at all so this was very much a case of learning on the job.
This time instead of 'building' a self propelled 'chair I thought I'd have a go at a copy of my Meyra Optimus 2 electric wheelchair. Here's a couple of pics:
I've enjoyed getting to grips with LDD but can't say I'm entirely happy with the results.
This'll be my first MOC and isn't to scale, I've just done it by eye. I think it's a 2-4 studs too wide but I'm hampered by the wheel size I'll try & sort it out during the build. Also, I'm not very happy with the side bodywork between the wheels & the area between the front wheels. The top box is a bit too big & not 'very elegant' so will also be redesigned.
It'll have PF, with an XL motor for drive and an M motor for the rear wheel steering. The AAA battery box is situated under the seat which, when the topbox is swung out, tips back for access. The receiver is sited in the topbox (though not on the pics above, my chair now has a top box).
I'm now ready to build it but thought first I'd post the LDD screenshots to see what you think.
I'd appreciate any constructive criticism.
