    Medieval Knights Cottage

    Hi all, Here is a medieval cottage made out of set 21325. The shape is inspired by the old lego set 3739. The roof opens up to reveal a bed, writing area, and armour stand. The whole top part can lift off to reveal the cozy first floor, complete with wood stockpile for the Light-Brick lit fire, a comfy armchair, and plenty of other supplies. Instructions available on my Rebrickable page.

    8 Wide Astro Van 1998

    My latest 8 wide MOC A 100% clean model, no studs are visible on the exterior. Uses crazy building techniques throughout, including a 2ldu offset, and buildable in many colour combinations. More pictures on Bricksafe Thanks to Mattsbrickmocs for the professional stickers! (Home printable version for label paper included with instructions as well) Check it out at: https://bricksafe.com/pages/Ender/astro-van https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-133174/EvilEnderman/chevrolet-astro-van-1998/#details
  3. Back again with another 8 studder, this one being the VW bus featured in the BBC sitcom "The Cleaner", starring Greg Davies. Complete with crime scene clean up kit in the back, accurate decals, and a plethora of SNOT techniques, the free instructions can be downloaded on Rebrickable One of my personal gripes with other LEGO models I've seen with rear wheel spats or "fender skirts" for the americans, is that the rear wheels are recessed by a non insignificant amount compared to the front wheels. My primary aim was to ameliorate this by means of using the half-stud thick panel piece mounted upside-down. Thus, the front and rear wheels are collinear, without sitting too far into the arches. Full photoshoot on my Bricksafe
  4. I've made a V2 of this MOC with 2x BuWizz 2.0, because why not!? https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-155904/EvilEnderman/dual-buwizz-tarmac-shredder-chassis/#details Free instructions for anyone crazy enough to build one See it in action here:
  5. Bought a BuWizz the other week, and now I can't stop experimenting with it... Here's a little buggy I made with the lego buggy motor and a PF servo motor. The mission objective was to make it as rigid as possible. Thus, the bodywork is designed to remain put when abused, and so aesthetics weren't my first concern. On first testing outside, this thing is an absolute beast. Waiting for the weather in the UK to become reliably good and then I'll get some killer videos For more pictures, see my Bricksafe page: https://bricksafe.com/pages/Ender/buwizz-buggy The front suspension uses the soft high travel suspension mechanism from my previous Dune Buggy MOC. I added those yellow 5l bars in order to make it look like something is happening, because the mechanism with the actual springs is highly concealed. Suspension demonstration: Will post an update soon!

    Linde Electric Forklift (5 Wide)

    Saw the Lego forklift elements on Stud.io and thought I ought to have a go making a forklift. I recreated the one I'm most familiar with, a Linde forklift which we have at work. Sariel's model scaler was used to get it as close as I could, and I'm really happy with the results. I really want to spray-paint the wheels red at some point too! Instructions and partslist: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-151453/EvilEnderman/linde-electric-forklift/#details The parts aren't too rare, I managed to find all of them for less than 25 quid. For the full photoshoot, see here: https://bricksafe.com/pages/Ender/linde-e16-electric-forklift Cheers lads
  7. Could it be a possibility for a feature to use the inbuilt accelerometer as a steering stabilisation tool?

    Electronic Scales (1:1)

    I'm enjoying trying to build things in 1:1 scale, Previously I built a Micro830 computer I thought i'd go meta, just for a laugh, plus because the tiles for the buttons are the perfect size compared to the real thing! Instructions: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-151197/EvilEnderman/electronic-scales-11/#details Real bricks coming in the post soon, will update when physically built

    Small scale luxury yacht

    Wanted to do something nautical, as i've been building a considerable amount of cars recently. Inspired by the Princess 49, here is a mini yacht that makes a fantastic desk ornament at work. A taste of luxury, without the price tag! The final result is super sturdy, and mostly studless. Instructions available for download (Premium): https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-150625/EvilEnderman/luxury-yacht/#details
  10. I could stare at this all day, masterful work. The layered panels as stairs, and the transparent panel as the bus stop though...
  11. Id recommend two of the same type motor. Even if you got the BuWizz motor and the L motor running at exactly the same RPM, the torque the different motors produce vs current applied (Torque constant) will be different, so their performance won't be uniform across different loads. As it's drawing more current in the coupled state, I see that as a red flag - seems like the motors are fighting eachother - I'd recommend trying two BuWizz motors instead.
  12. After a lot of people downloaded my 3 wheeler V8 alternate build of doms charger, I thought i'd keep it on three wheels and build a reliant robin. Powered by BuWizz 2.0 and BuWizz motor, although the gearing pictured will change to 1:1 as I keep tripping the overload thermistor. It's amazing fun, and will very likely tip over if you're not careful! Despite putting stabiliser wheels on it, it still flips over... Free instructions coming on Rebrickable, as well as a proper full length youtube video now I have a proper tripod. #
  13. Instructions out on Rebrickable: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-149133/EvilEnderman/rc-reliant-robin-buwizz/#details Inventory doesn't include BuWizz. Does anyone know if there's a proper .dat model of a BuWizz somewhere on this forum? I made a very crude version using PartDesigner to illustrate the concept, but it doesn't look quite right.
  14. I plan to do a trotter's traders Reliant Regal mod of this at some point, just got to order a bunch more yellow panels. I've been tempted to make a Bedford pickup or a japanese Kei truck for a while...
  15. https://bricksafe.com/pages/Ender/reliant-robin-evening-shoot New photos taken in some sunset lighting. Instructions should be online by Sunday.
  16. Hi everyone, My latest MOC is in the form of an alternate build - a race truck built from the parts of 42111. The features are as follows: V8 Turbocharged engine with detailed pipework Nitrous Oxide boosters Front independant suspension Rear live axle suspension HOG steering Fifth wheel Opening doors with mirrors Interior with fire exinguisher Below are some renders of the truck: Instructions are available on Rebrickable Here is an example pic from the instructions .
  17. Got a few ideas the other night while down the pub Working on a BuWizz conversion for this old moc of mine Got a chassis that passes the rigidity test (dropping it from 0.5m) Tempted to re-jig the bodywork a bit, to keep it as light as possible perhaps a Mercedes truck?
  18. https://bricks.stackexchange.com/questions/14872/what-is-inside-buwizz-2-0 Looking at this link the battery is directly soldered to the board. I've decided to go to the Winchester, have a nice cold pint, and wait for this all to blow over
  19. I see, I'm now registered on the beta so let's hope it's smooth sailing. Tried connecting to a charger but no luck, i guess it's just a waiting game
  20. Had this problem yesterday while driving, BuWizz 2.0 stopped working and now will only blink red. I managed to get it to blink faster when experimenting with stuff on the app but nothing has worked. BuWizz support say to wait for it to fully discharge, then try again. this will take a few days... They do however say there is a firmware update planned to fix this. I'm very disappointed, after just dropping over 100 quid on this, I expect it to work reliably. Perhaps I should have got the 3.0 instead
  21. Tinkering complete! https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-144659/EvilEnderman/buwizz-high-speed-buggy/#details I reckon it goes about 10mph. It's plenty fast for bricks, but i think i'm going to make a 4wd version soon. Cheers lads -E

    Allen Bradley Micro830 PLC

    Ordered a bag of round 1x1s off bricklink to make this display...

    Allen Bradley Micro830 PLC

    it's a 1:1 scale model of the infamous industrial computer. For electronics nerds, see here: Teardown of a similar PLC in the Micro800 range
