    Fiat 125p

    Thanks! That's a good idea. Haha 😂 It is brand new, straight from the factory, just spent some time on the parking lot... 😀

    Fiat 125p

    Thanks for all the nice words 😀 You are right, they are the only one for a normal, non-supercar vehicle. There are also 94.3x38, but they fit to a much larger scale.

    Yes, the polski fiat is Fiat 125p. There is also Fiat 125, which looks a little different (square front lights instead of round ones).

    Fiat 125p

    Fiat 125p Specifications: Length/width/height: 58s/23s/20s Scale: 1:9,5 Weight: 2268 grams Parts count: 3066 2x L motor 2x servo motor 1x sbrick Power supply: 1x8881 BB/1x8878 BB/1xBuwizz Features: Driving - 2x L motor Steering - servo motor 4-speed gearbox - I (1:2,08) II (1,67:1) III (1,25:1) IV (0,8:1) Changing gears - servo motor Front independent suspension Rear floating suspensionWorking inline 4 cylinders engine Working steering wheel Adjustable front seats Openable doors (front with lock) Openable bonnet from inside Openable trunk Removable bodywork Front and rear LED lights I came up with the idea of building Fiat 125p at the beginning of this year. I started the build in the March, and after two months the model is ready. For driving I used two L motors, which powers the fourspeed gearbox. I wanted to make it as low as possible to have enough space for interior. Apart from the gears it is 2 studs high, thanks to use the Chiron’s orange brick. The gears are changed using servo motor and a simple stepper. Gear shifting is reliable in 80% cases while driving and 100% while it's stoped. This is probably due to friction while driving. Most often second gear does not want to shift to third. This gears are on both sides of the gearbox, it probably results from that. I changed axles and lubricated the driving rings, but the effort was the same. Gearbox ratio: I 2,08:1 II 1,67:1 III 1,25:1 IV 0,8:1 The car drives quite smoothly. In the fourth gear it reaches 4 kph, while powering by buwizz in ludicrous mode. For steering there is servo, which also moves the steering wheel. What I chose as one of my goals was removable bodywork. It required a slighty different build of the chassis and completely different build of the bodywork. The most important was to route the wires correctly from the front of car (2x L motor, servo and lights) to the rear, where there is sbrick. It required using two extension wires 20cm and 50cm. Time for manual functions. Fiat has got front doors with lock. It has similar construction as in my previous MOCs, it works thanks to a rubber. The front seats are adjustable in probably the easiest way. There are no any worms or gear racks, the adjustment works thanks to a lever, which moves the seat. It works similar to wishbones in suspension. On the passagner’s site there is a lever to open the bonnet. Unfortunately on the driver’s side there wasn’t enough space, due to the steering wheel and wires. Bonnet and trunk has got hinges to prevent it from falling down. While building the bodywork the most important was to provide it with adequate rigidity, because it is another part. The roof gives the stiffness, which (first time in my MOC) performs the function of strengthening the body work, just like in a real car. Most of the work was with the body line. Looking from upside on Fiat, it is a bit rounded: narrows at the front and rear of the car, and widens in the middle. I solved it through not entirely legal connection: liftarm 15 at slight angle. The door frames also required a little bit of effort. I tried to use as few as possible this, because of it’s terrible price in red. Curiosities: 1. The pistons are moving in the same order as in the real engine. 2. The air filter also bolts the body to the chassis. After turning it the lock in the front is released, and after removing axles in the middle and in the rear, you can remove the whole bodwork. This is the first model to which I made instructions. It required some patience with stud.io and LDcad. They are available at rebickable: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-42230/Porsche96/fiat-125p Few sample pages: Some additional photos Gallery Fiat 125p is ready. Time to implement new ideas :)

    Liebherr HS 8040

    Thanks for kind words :D

    Liebherr HS 8040

    Liebherr HS 8040 Specification Length 40s / width 23-29s / height 21s (32/18-23/17 cm) – without boom Scale: 1:18 Maximum height depending on the lenght of the boom I 70 cm – equivalent 11m II 87 cm – equivalent 14m III 102 cm – equivalent 17m IV 121 cm – equivalent 20m Weight: 2945-4014g Power supply 2xBB 8878 Controlled by two sbricks 2x M 3x L 2x XL Functions Driving - 2 Ls Track sliding - M Rotation of the uppercarriage - M Lifting boom by a winch – L Two winches for moving the bucket – 2 XLs Today, I’d like to present you a dragline excavator Liebherr HS 8040. I came up with the idea of building such a machine after watching a movie from Brick Creek exhibition. The whole construction was made in about two months. For driving I used two L motors, which power both tracks with ratio 1,67:1. Because of that ratio the excavator is pretty fast (maybe too fast for such a machine). Because of variable track spacing there is no space to add other gear reduction, while maintaining the stability of the structure. The tracks are slided by four small linear actuators, driven by M motor. The mechanism of retracting tracks is based on guides of three studs height and one width. They come into the undercarrige, based on two cnostructions made of 5x7 frames, and connected by the system of sliding tracks. Details in photos below. The uppercarriage is mainly based on frames, connected by liftarms and housing made of technic panels. For rotation I used M motor with ratio 120:1. Three winches are made in similar way: the string is wound on a sleeve on an axle, between two 36 gears, driven by 12 gears. For lifting boom there is one L motor, and for moving the bucket there are two XL motors. I used modular counterweight, like in the real excavator. In the lightest configuartion it weighs 319 grams and consists of a battery box and back cover of the excavator. The heaviest configuartion of the counterweight it weighs 1140 grams. It consists of the lighter configuration and additional battery box, cover and lead weights (8x70g), which are protected against movement while driving the excavator. Boom is a simply, durable construction made with liftarms. Most angular connections are „legal”, but because of the narrowing of the first and the last section of boom, not all of them are. But they fits with no problem. Boom configuartions: I) I + IV: 30s + 44s, max height of the excavator 70 cm II) I + II + IV: 30s + 21s + 44s, max height of the excavator 87 cm III) I + II + IV: 30s + 42s + 44s, max height of the excavator 102 cm IV) I + II + III + IV: 30s + 21s + 42s + 44s, max height of the excavator 121 cm I built two buckets: a dragline bucket and a clamshell bucket. The excavator can be also used as a crane, but while lifting heavier element it would require bigger counterweight. Before I started the building, I wanted to make something fully modular. I think it worked out :) Operating the excavator is not easy, it requires a little of experience, which I am achieving. This type of machine is designed primarily to dig below the ground on which it stands (f.e. dredging water reservoirs), that’s why it’s hard to dig from a flat surface.

    Volvo H9X

    Volvo H9X Specification of the excavator Length 60s / width 31s / height 20s (47/24,5/16 cm) - without excavator arm Max dimensions of excavator arm: 60x35 cm(length x width) Weight: 3637 g Front suspension: none Rear suspension: none AWD Steered both axles Power - 2x 8878 BB 3x M 4xL 2x XL 3x Servo Specification of the trailer Length 55s / width 25s / height 17s (44/20/13,5 cm) Weight: 1398 g Power: 1x 8881 BB 1x XL Functions Driving - 2x XL Steering - M Gearbox - M Lifting the blade - M Excavator rotation - L Movement of the arm - 3L + 3 Servos Lifting the trailer's tipping bed - XL Today, I want to present wheeled excavator Volvo H9X with trailer. Model was built for Lego contest „Build the construction machines of the future”. Later it received many improvements… In short: it is wheeled excavator without operator’s cabin. I didn’t pattern the model on any real machine. As a scale I took Claas’s wheels. For driving there are two XL motors, which drive the 4 wheels, through two-speed gearbox. First gear ratio is 5:1, and second 1,8:1. The gears are changed by M motor and two 1x7 racks. Both axles are steered by M motor with gear ratio 3:1. In the front there are blade, driven by another M motor. In the upper part of the excavator there are three comperssors for three pnematic functions. First, which drives the four big pnematic cylinders, consists of L motor and two pnematic pumps. Next two compressors are the same (L motor + one pump) and they drive the pneumatic cylinders for moving second section of the arm and the bucket. The valves are steered by three Servos. For excavator rotation I used L motor with gear ratio 155:1. In the front there are double Led lights, powered by a switch. The trailer is a simple liftarm construction. The bed is tipped by one linear actuator driven by XL motor. It is powered by switch, because of lack of free channels on the IR receivers. Gallery

    Lancia Delta Integrale

    As said pagicence it allows easier drifting and more fun. Using differential also gives better steering angle. The difference in speed of wheel I tried to reduce by using 8878 BB for rear - with voltage 7,2V and gear ratio 1:3, and in front by using 8800 BB - 9V and gear ratio 1:2,15 With Lego powerfunction it isn't possible to do that, maybe with EV3, but I don't think so. Thanks for all nice words, using 3Ls for such small model gives really a lot of fun

    Lancia Delta Integrale

    Wow, it had to be cool experience to drive real Delta Integrale I_Igor is right, all clips are in original speed
  11. Lancia Delta Integrale Specification Scale 1:14 Length 37s / width 19s / height 13s (54/23,5/13,5 cm) Weight: 1050 g Front suspension: none Rear suspension: none AWD Functions Driving - 3L Steering - Servo Today, I want to present Lancia Delta Integrale. I’m sure that everyone know the original one, which won many rallies. There was few versions of Integrale: from norma road cars to monster with power of hundreds hp. This model is usual one. My main goal was to build small, fast car, which gives a lot of fun. The construction is quite simple. Lancia is driven by 3Ls - 2Ls for rear, powered by 8878 BB and IR receiver V2, and one L for front, powered by 8800 BB. For steering (with Ackermann geometry) I used servo.

    Porsche Carrera GT

    Thanks for all the nice words :D Thanks, here are some :) Actually, I didn't notice it :/ Not now, but maybe in some time.
  13. Porsche Carrera GT Specifications Scale 1:8,5 Length 67s / width 29s / height 17s (54/23,5/13,5 cm) Weight: 2500 g Front suspension: independent pushrod Rear Suspension: independent multilink pushrod RWD Functions Driving - 2L Steering - Servo Moving spoiler - M LED headlights Working steering wheel V10 dummy Openable doors, hood, trunk Removable roof – like the original After a longer break I would like to present the Porsche Carrera GT. In my opinion it’s the best Porsche ever made. My nick commits, so I decided to build it ;) Original car was produced in 2004-2007, had V10 engine with power 612KM and the maximum speed at 330km/h. The construction isn’t very complicated. Porsche is driven by 2L motors with ratio 1,4. It eliminates resistance, which would be in the gearbox. Thanks to that the car is quite fast. My first decision was to place the Battery Box in the middle of the model for easy battery replacement. That’s why I had to build the frame a bit different, because in the place where usually were liftarms, now is Battery Box. The spoiler is moved by 2 mini linear actuators driven by M motor. The front and rear suspension is similar to the original one: independent pushrod. It works same as in F1 cars. In front there is also Ackerman geometry. For depreciation I used 2 springs from yellow 6.5L absorbers (in front) and 2 yellow absorbers 6.5L per wheel (in rear). Suspension would have worked a bit better, but it’s imitated by the original, and in the real Porsche all the links are form metal, here are plastic. The steering is really simple – servo, gear 12 and gear rack. I’m generally satisfied with the model, it looks and drives quite good, but the suspension would have worked a bit better ;) Pictures – of course with comparison to 42056 Gallery

    Solaris Urbino 12 IV

    Thanks for nice words :) I didn't use hub parts, beacuse they don't affect on the sagging. They also cause that the rear axle is wider.
  15. Welcome, I'd like to present a bus Solaris Urbino 12 IV. Specifications Scale 1:15 Length 103s / width 23s / height 27s (83/18/22 cm) Weight: 5,4 kg Front suspension: Independent, double-wishbone Rear suspension: Live axle Suspension with kneeling system RWD 2-speed gearbox AA+AAA Battery Boxes 7 motors Functions Driving - 2XLs Steering - L Opening doors - M Kneeling system - L + Servo Changing gears - M LED headlights Working steering wheel History Some time ago I decided to build a bus. I chose Solaris, beacuse it's a polish concern, which is producing buses and trams. I started building in mid-Febraury, and I finished it few days ago. Chassis The biggest challenge was to construct a strong chassis. We need to remember that it's a low-floor bus. The drive motors and the gearbox are (like the real one) located veritically on the left, behind the rear axle. It's causing big stress and I had to overcome it by the chassis. It consist of 3 parts: at the bottom there is a floor 2s thick, built from panels 5x11 and frames; at the top there are beams 3x3s on each side of the bus, they are built from liftarms. These two elements are combined by 7 rungs. The construction of the chassis is similar to the hulls of ships and planes. Drivetrain The bus is driven by 2 XLs. Gearbox ratio: I - 12,6:1 II - 4,2:1 The gearbox is built from frames, using 2 gear 24, 1 gear 12 and 1 gear 36. The gears are changed by M motor and mini linear actuator. The biggest problem was to lead the drive from gearbox to the axle. It is the weakest point of the bus - 2 universal joints, connected to the gearbox and to the axle, under a load break. Steering For steering I used L motor with reduction 14,4:1. It propels the gear rack 1x13 and also the steering wheel. Suspension Front suspension is independent with 2 yellow 6.5L absorbers per wheel. Rear is live axle. It has 1 grey and 5 yellow 6.5L absorbers (1 grey and 2 yellow for the right side and 3 yellow for the left side). Opening doors + kneeling system The doors are opened by M motor, reducted by 40:1. The drive is transmitted by liftarms used as links. The kneeling system is realised by 2 medium pneumatic cylinders. The pneumatic wires are connected only from one side, so the bus can rise using the absorbers. L motor drives the compressor and servo opens the valve with reduction 3:1. These 3 motors are electrically coupled, so in each door there is a gear with clucth. Thanks to that, the compressor doesn't stop at any time.
