    [MOC] Doof Wagon (Mad Max: Fury Road)

    Excellent rendition, ride majestic to Valhalla!

    42115 - Lamborghini Sian FKP 37

    Finally may take the plunge into large Technic supercars this time, both my son and I are excited to build this. But, LEGO, why oh why visible blue pin ends???? First MOD is to figure out how many MSG (without friction) or black (with friction) axle/pin 2L and connector 3L are needed.
  3. Somewhat mind boggling what you accomplished. I too am surprised that everything works well without too much friction, but as you stated, once an output load is applied, then gears may start stalling. One application is to use as a device like a stroboscope to determine RPM of a motor, but somewhat difficult to see how that may be implemented.

    [MOC] Overly complex mechanism

    What, rotates around the vertical axis, but doesn't rotate about either horizontal axes ! Neat device, nice and compact, but what does it do? (Other than impress the Technic Forum )

    42115 - Lamborghini Sian FKP 37

    Well, some of us like the MB Arocs as its the perfect marriage of form and function, plus it PF and pneumatics, and some of us like the recent line of fancy sports cars including the upcoming Lambo, and still some of us like both! As an engineering and am more inclined to playing with the Arocs and admiring the Bugatti and friends sitting on my shelf.
  6. 24: 1040: 64: 429: 351: 21: 1 So many excellent entries; I had a short list of 12 that appealed more to me than the others; yet every entry is could be a winner. Good luck to all the participants!

    [MOC] Lego Pneumatic Steam Locomotive

    Excellent build, thanks for sharing. Certainly qualifies for the Technic forum Hall of Fame. The link to LEGO ideas project page does not seem to work for me, supported! Your choice of track looks great as well and adds to the appeal, rather than using the straight track part 3228c:

    Are Closed-Loop Systems Possible?

    Closed-loop fluid systems are very common - anyone with an air conditioner or refrigerator has one. As long as an external source of energy is supplied and the system is kept free from leaks, a closed loop system will operate indefinitely, until parts or seals wear out, which usually happens on the hottest day of the year

    Lego Minas Tirith

    Will vote, looks excellent at this scale, nice use of parts, etc. But I doubt this will get made as TLG has had plenty of opportunity to make a similar set and didn't. You do need a few more minifigs, a lit beacon, a Nazgul, and of course, Grond. By the way, how many parts and any interior features?

    Dredger , Floating Excavator

    Hi Uefchen, another excellent MOC - and it is so refreshing to see a non-wheeled vehicle.

    42110 - Land Rover Defender

    I might store mine in a pneumatically sealed positive pressure enclosure to prevent dust, mites, etc. from getting to it; or, build the stadium truck, and then part it out for MOCs

    42110 - Land Rover Defender

    Having just finished the build, I found all parts present and accounted for. I was careful to avoid the pitfalls others have reported, and do not have the horrible cracking sounds others have reported. The only way to fix this is to rebuild. You will find that Lego stores do not have spare/loose Technic parts. The best way to get more technic is to - buy a set, gets parts from Bricklink, or get parts from Lego website Bricks and Pieces.

    42110 - Land Rover Defender

    I'm a bit late to the party also, having just found time to build my 42110. And, I also got stuck on step 271 - its not a black gear here, you need the dark-stone-grey T8 gear, fits perfectly This: BTW, just starting bag 3 and I discovered I accidently used tan rather than 'Land Rover Green' 2x1 beam w/cross in the engine crank assembly, so now my seats look a bit, ahem, used.

    [MOC] Pink Floyd - Echoes
