[TC6] MAN Transport truck with crane on the back + Instructions

Recommended Posts

Hi !

Here is my WIP for the TC6 contest.

It's a transport truck with a palfinger crane on the back.

My model have 4 powered motors. I use a gearbox, so i have 7 functions motorised.

- Selection of operating mode (M-motor)

Driving :

- Drive (XL-motor)

- Steer (M-motor)

- Outriggers (M-motor)

Handling :

- UP arm (XL-motor)

- Rotate arm (M-motor)

- Open arm (M-motor)

+ fake engine and suspension

When the gearbox is in neutral, it is possible to drive in hand with HOG.

And small render with LDD. Very far from the quality of Blackbird.

This looks fantastic! I really like this project.

One suggestion though: From my past experience, I would suggest not using a clutch gear between the worm gear and your changeover catch. Torque from the XL motor can make the driving rings pop out if you use a 24t clutch gear. I suggest replacing the 24t clutch gear with a standard 24t gear and then find a way to place a clutch gear between the worm gear and motor.

Great project you have here! :thumbup:

Thanks !

I have no problem yet with the 24t clutch gear. When I block the wheels, the XL motor stops. Maybe because the 24t clutch is new.

The worm gear is not completely maintained, it can slide, which allows to change with the hand.

It's possible that there has similarity with Madoka's Wing Body Truck. I really like his truck. This design is classic. Other people have told me it is similar to #8258.

But I realize that my panels of my cabin also has the same positioning.

Very nice design!

The cab is clean and very detailed, I love.

Your steering wheel is functional?

Eager to see how you will succeed the crane, but it is very promising ...

Good luck for the future!

Really great cabin!

I just dont like the roof of the cabin. I think it would be nicer if it was made in one level, without the spoiler sticking one level above.

The whole truck looks very robust and thick, and I especially like the crane base.

Tanks !

No, you can see the 3D render on the first post.

However, there is a space that would allow me to do so. But this is not easy because the cab is tilting.

I just dont like the roof of the cabin. I think it would be nicer if it was made in one level, without the spoiler sticking one level above.

I was afraid that the roof is too flat. I can lower it, but I do not want it to be too steep.

Yes the truck is robust. With the loading it does not flex.

I hope it will always be the case with the crane.

The crane base was interesting to create, because there are 5 axes! (3 for the arme, and 2 for stabilizers)

Cabs on these types of trucks are usually daily cabs, and then, mostly flat. But if you tried it, and it does not look good, then I agree. As I said, cabin is great!

Really nice work to date. Much better than what I could do. Although I do find it hard to understand why some people would leave the building of the key attributes of the truck until the very end. Personally I always like to build items such as a crane early on, just to make sure that it will perform as expected.

This is looking really nice,good job.

All it needs now is a crane.

Really great cabin!

Yes I do agree with you,what about using some cheese slopes 1x1?

lovely truck - getting a compact foldable/extendible crane on the back is probably going to take as long as the whole truck did
