[MOC] Bucket Wheel Excavator ER-1250

Love the set of course. But to me, there is a gross aberration when they used the track elements for conveyors. Yes, it's a toy, but would have preferred to see some real piece of flat rubber for carrying goods.

I suppose its down to playability - Tracks can be taken apart and used in a lot of different ways (plus they help bump the piece count), whereas a big thick rubber band has limited uses.

Specialised parts aren't good - they have a limited application. Lego could have of course used a couple of the rubber tracks in their set (42055), but than it would mean one motor driving multiple sprockets - not even sure it would work.

BTW it's a MOC not a set

Thanks! I think No.

It's a vicious circle - after our mail you'll need the instructions to recreate the model for instructions making...

You must send it assembled of course! Make sure to pack it carefully.

As an alternative, you may send me a plane ticket to St. Petersburg and I will come to you.

That's a work of art. The kind of thing you'd build to use all your parts. great work.
