C-MODEL CONTEST ENTRY TOPIC

This is the entry topic for the Technic C-Model Contest.

DESCRIPTION

Build an alternate LEGO Model out of one or two existing LEGO Technic sets. The total part count for the set(s) you use can't exceed 600, so you can either use a single set containing 600 parts or less or use two (different) sets with a combined part count of 600 or less. You can't use 600 parts of a 1200 part set. Since 2005 is the year I came out of my dark ages, I am also imposing a release date limit. The set(s) need to be released in the year 2005 or later.

DEADLINE

Deadline date is November 30th, 2014. Contest will be closed on Monday the 1st, so you will have the entire Sunday to build.

  • Pendular suspension on the rear axle

Photos:

21. The Rare Red Grader

Here is my entry for the [TC5] competition (based on the 8261 and 8048):

8048-1.jpg?2+ 8261-1.jpg=

The rare red grader

15260390734_3d765932ba_c.jpg

It features:

- Steering : HoG + steering in the cab

- Pendular suspension on the front axle

- Pendular suspension on the rear axle

- Grader blade with the following articulation possibilities:

- up/down (operated by pushing the rod forward or backward. It has a spring loaded knee-jack mechanism to keep it either up or down)

- tilt around the vertical axis (operated by turning the wheel on the rod)

- tilt around the horizontal axis (to make it follow the ground. Not a real life feature, but great for playability)

- Ripper at the back (also with a spring loaded knee jack mechanism to keep it either up or down)

- 2 cilinder fake engine driven by one of the wheels (not enough gears in the set to connect all wheels, but it is an easy mod :wink: )

And a picture from the leftover parts:
