Thirdwigg's MOCs

Recommended Posts

I finished the Unimog 437 chassis last night. Before the rest of if is finished, I figured I would give a little update on this project.

The long wheelbase chassis has front and rear live axles, four wheel drive, steering, and a I4 engine. It is set up with manual control, but allows for PF upgrades. Exhaust on the left, and a fuel tank on the right.

I have completed three cabs, which will attach to the front at four points. Also, multiple rear attachments are at various points of completion. I will have available a short and long three way tipper bed, a military canvas bed, Power Functions drive pack, knuckleboom crane, and a salt spreader. A camper too, if I can stay motivated.

Stay tuned...

Also, @Didumos69, the transmission on the Car above works great. That should be finished soon as well. At least soon on my timeframe.

All three cabs are done for the 437. The power pack is done, and two of the four rear beds are done. Then I just need to finish the video and the photo all of the setups. Here is a closeup of the tipper mechanism for the bed that matches the Doka cab.

Nice :thumbup: This tilting bed somehow reminds me on my solution on 1:18 Unimog U423 long wheelbase...

I currently have 4 MOCs that are about 80% complete, which proves my lack of focus. I would love to finish all of them, like tomorrow. But looking through the dates of past updates, it's unlikely.

The Unimog 437, is close to being done. This is the short wheel base version with all the same hardpoints as the long wheel base version.

Supercars frustrate me. I love working on the driveline, but the body work stalls me (see super sedan as well.) I am pleased enough with were this is at and that I will finish it, but it may take some more time. Thanks to @Didumos69 the transmission works perfectly now.

A while ago I had an idea for a piggyback forklift. I intended to have it be a part of a larger MOC with a 15 stud wide truck, trailer, and cargo. Maybe someday I'll make something to go with it, or someone else can. In the meantime, I am going to post this, and move on to other projects.

Features

  • Steering
  • Fork lift
  • Fork tilt
  • Fork extension
  • 15 studs wide

Cute little simple forklift, and it is blue. I never thought that blue looks so good on forklift :thumbup:

I saw @Cumulonimbus post on the 42093 thread his nearly C-Model Porsche 911 GT3. I was posted as I was working on my own 911, which is the exact same size. Since mine is not related to 42093, I figured I would post it here. I currently have a lot of projects being worked on, so we'll see how long it take for this to get completed.

OK, I have not touched this car for over a year now, so I am calling it done. Not finished, but no more work will be put into it. In fact, I already disassembled it. But I felt it still was worth sharing. Enjoy.

Features:

  • Steering (Wheel, HOG)
  • Suspension
  • V-8
  • Four Speed Tranmission
  • Opening doors, trunk, and hood

The 964 911 is getting closer.

48623314643_aef0f6845e_b.jpg

With steering, opening doors and hood, and working flat 6.

Oh, and a ducktail spoiler of course.

There is a part of me that thinks 42098 is a little gimmicky, but I am falling for building cars in the scale. Those little panels are super fun.

I like what I see. 

I have some questions though. Is it possible to break the line on the hood to reduce the gap with the fenders? Could you make the rear section of the roof less domed, more progressive?

The front hood gap has been resolved.

 Agree with the roof as well. Looking at @steph77's 911, I am wondering if I can do something like this. I like having ridged roofs as this gives a good handhold while playing, so I'll see if I can come up with a good solution that gives a better curve.

I spent some time this morning working on the roof. Its a little better as I added an orange connector #1 to the top mounting of the soft axle hoses. The curve is more progressive now. Good?

It seems a number of projects are finishing up at the same time. This is the trailer for my Iveco Hooklift. I am waiting on a couple more parts, then I'll post it.

Great use of the panels :thumbup: , I didn´t know that those new central panels had the same curve of the old near ones.

I lot of projects are coming to completion in Thirdwiggville lately. Here is the Porsche 911RS 964. Heavily influenced by @paaves two 911 versions.

In little Porsche 911 in the scale of LEGO 42098. Features:
-Steering
-Flat 6 Engine
-Opening Hood, Doors, and Trunk

When it sits next to the car from 42098, it looks a little out of scale, but it's really close.
