Review and instructions:

 

Hi! I’m glad to show my new MOC – it’s Merlo Roto Telehandler in 1:11 scale.

Here you can see the real machine:

The dimensions: 80 x 25 x 30 cm, total weight – 5,7 kg. The max height is 83 cm. The model contains approximately 5100 parts.

The model has eight remote controlled functions (three S-bricks, 14 motors).

1. Four L-motors for AWD with diffs.

2. Two servo-motors with independent control for steering. We can steer normal, with reduced radius or crab.

3. Outriggers deploying – two M-motors.

4. Superstructure rotation – one XL-motor.

5. Boom raising – two M-motors. The boom is rather heavy it can’t lift significant additional weights.

6. Boom extension – one M-motor.

7. The rigs operation – one M-motor. I’ve created classic fork and crane.

8. Cab lift for visibility improvement.

In addition to motorized functions the model has suspension with solid axles (eight hard shock absorbers), detailed cab and other cool features.

Let’s watch the video:

Incredible telehandler! Awesome functionality, and the sheer size just adds to it! :thumbup: Great use of the all the Porsche orange parts, I cannot wait to get the instructions!

EDIT: +1 HoF!

Well, this is amazing... and orange. A true masterpiece of LEGO engineering, especially at that scale.

My only niggle is it looks a bit too orange for me, although I do appreciate the real things tend to be uniformly one colour. I don't think a liiittle more black or LBG around the cab would have hurt, though. Apart from that, very well done.

Hey! First English video, congrats! Very nice, clear and clever!
I'll let you know about the instructions. 
Firstly can I (we) ask for digital partlist to compare it with rebrickable collection?

Half expected this to be lime green, but I guess a Merlo also looks superb in orange! Wonderful work, wish I had one! :thumbup:

Thank you! What format should digital partlist have? Where can I find a tutorial how to generate it?
