6: Marsupial

Its only with the spirit of contest that I enter this here and not withdraw.

it is a failure. Time, different parts and a start all over could fix the problems but this is probably best kept to the realms of science fiction and not to be built in reality. My imagination got way ahead of my ability and reality.

it is supposed to be a heavy transport vehicle like no other. Well it is like no other no doubt.

7. Hex rover

800x450.jpg

The Hex rover's prirmary mission goals are:

  • Travel across rough terrain using it's all wheel drive and rocker-bogie suspension
  • Use the claws to gather and pick up samples to look for suitable minerals
  • Launch the drone to create detailed aerial photographs and terrain readings
  • Take detailed spacial photographs using the high mounted 3D camera

This is the Rover in folded configuration. Note the massive radiator used to cool it's RTGs (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radioisotope_thermoelectric_generator).

With a confimed successfull landing, the mission begins:

8. Mobile Power Station

800x401.jpg

A vehicle capable of carrying several modules consisting of a base with stable and complex X-style outriggers, smooth tracks and a foldable array of solar panels.

With everything retracted, its rectangular shape allows it to easily be transported.

Full gallery: https://bricksafe.com/pages/kubic5/mars

Functions: 

Solar module:

- motorized synchronized movement of both outrigger stages, a complex mechanism explained in the discussion topic

- lifting and locking the solar panels

- rotating them

- extending via a scissor mechanism 

- joints with vertical freedom of movement

Tractor vehicle:

- interchangeable couplings with a gear rack

- simple winch

- cargo bay for battery cells

- opening doors and easy access to PF switch

800x414.jpg

800x555.jpg

The reason why this machine is needed on Mars in that it can easily set up a power source in remote areas. It is able to transport a solar module, which can survive a sandstorm thanks to its powerful outriggers, and then carry the energy in the battery cells. Its shape makes it possible to carry many of these at once while travelling to Mars.

Discussion topic and a simple video: 

 

Thank you for reading!

9. Mars Interceptor

(Air/space superiority fighter)

Lego Technic (TC16) Mars Interceptor

EurobrX engineers have been reached by MDF (mars defence force) to help developed a space craft to help defend Mars.. Since Mars is next door to the asteroid belt..  Meteors are Mars biggest threats and every day a few as big as 1000 miles get close by....   EurobrX Engineers mix a dash of DNA of B-52 , A-10 and some how DNA from a X-wing Fighter !!!

 

This set repersents EurobrX dual 2 position flight controls which the dual rockets are tied to the rudder and elevators and using Lego PF Leds to give the flames from lego city BBQ set (new) and its gives the model a real looking rocket blast!!!  There are 2 cargo bay doors and two lifts (top and gun mount inside bomb bay) landing gears and details using snot... (not nose grease)  since this is the first prototype for the MDF .. Captain Jim version of the ship sports a two tone blue paint racing strips. This version 5 of my shuttles fleet!!!  If you asked me.. this set looks good!!!!  Lego Technic (TC16) Mars Interceptor

 

 

Lego Technic (TC16) Mars Interceptor
