Hey Cjd223,

is the new instruction on plan? Do you think you will finish at Fall 2021?

Thanks, Thomas

Unfortunately no way, no how will it be done this year. There is so much on my plate right now along with this MOC, and I want to make sure that everything is PERFECT with the update/remaster that will hopefully really make everyone happy.

I currently estimate that it will be fully revised and good to go in mid-late 2022.

Ok, thanks for the update! Good luck

@bricksmarlin

Would it be possible you share the pictures of your findings again or is there a link to a Flickr or other site to see the information?

Thanks for your help

AFAIK Bricksmarlin uses/used his own location to host his pictures.
But this site ( https://www.imperiumdersteine.de/index.php?media/albums/users/bricksmarlin.8754/ ) is since a few weeks not reachable. 
Firefox says:

I really love what @viptouge and @bricksmarlin did to their insides of the sandcrawler. After admiring it and thinking about it a lot I created now my own inside if the Sandcrawler with a winch at the front! Thank you guys for the inspiration I am now one step closer to my final display version ;). Thanx a bunch!

So I haven’t seen anyone post lighting for the cockpit so I took a shot at it and this is what I came up with.

Hi Redbird11,

is it also possible for you to upload your pictures to the electrics again? Thanks for sharing

Unfortunately I’m unable to find any of my stored pictures on Flickr, I will try to take some new ones. Are you just looking for where i put the lights or are you wanting to see how exactly it was wired?

Okay, so here are two pictures showing the location of the interior light setup in the cockpit... sorry it would have been a challenge to get the lights working because the Crawler is currently in storage. As you can see they are the Lego LEDs.

The leds will not fit there if the ir recievers are in the correct place

Pete,

I placed my IR receivers facing out the sides while using some color matching transparent plates... probably not the ideal placement but it still works. The setup for the lighting was never detailed in the instructions so i just came up with my own solution.

Thanks @Redbird11

Yes I'm looking for some wiring information. As you mentioned already it's not in the instruction. Some comments would be helpful like on step XXX you have to insert ir receivers close to.... Thanks!

Hey, how did you make your repulsor lift? I cannot - for the life of me - figure it out how you managed to change the direction of the bricks for the droid. Your help would be appreciated!

Thanks :)

There is just a stick or a pin in the Center

Yes, there is a 3L or 4L Pin running down the center (can’t remember which)

Thanks @muhkuh and @Redbird11! Sometimes the solution just lies in front of you. I am using inverted plates and only now realized there are some with holes in the middle. Makes total sense now^^
