  1. Thanks to everyone 😁 Thanks! Yes, I did. Great to hear that. Here and here are some screenshots from studio, maybe this will help you. Cool idea! I didn't even think about it, but unfortunately I don't have these in trans-clear. Yes, they are a bit too big, but I think they add a little of agressive look.
  2. Thanks :D Yes, I have just done it.
  3. Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Specifications Length/width/height: 79s / 32s / 28s (63/26/22 cm) Scale: 1:8 Weight: 2461g Parts: 3152 Features Front and rear independent suspension 8-speed sequential gearbox Working V8 engine with compressor RWD Steered wheels by HOG Working steering wheel Openable doors, hood and bonnet You could say "finally". It's one of MOCs that I have been creating for the longest time. It originally suposed to be Lamborghini Urus (but Loxlego was faster), later Mercedes AMG GT (here similar situation), so the final choice was Ford Mustang in the flagship version Shelby GT500. In the meantime Lego introduced 42138 set, what confirmed me that it was a good choice (you can take photos of the "big" and the "small" one). Below there are some WIP photos. You can see how the lights have evolved to their current version. Mustang comes with front wheels steered by a HOG with working steering wheel. There is no 4 wheel drive, so the turning radius isn't bad. In the front and in the rear there is independent suspension. In the front with McPherson strut, and in the rear double wishbone. Front suspension features geometry - Ackermann steering, KPI - King Pin Inclination and a minimal negative Camber. The bottom wishbone has 9 studs of length, what creates big lever, so one shock absorber for a wheel is fine. The rear suspension is simpler with two shock absorbers per wheel. The gearbox is placed just before the rear axle. The rear differential is moved back by 4 studs from the rear axle, so I could fit everything. You can see it on the picture taken from bottom. The gearbox comes with 8 gears and it's my creation. Unlike Lego sets (42083, 42115, 42143) I haven't used small 8 gear but bigger 24 gear. In my opinion it's better solution, I'm not a fan of using small gears in a drivetrain. The gears are changed by a lever inside or a second one, located in place of the rear window. It makes easier to change the gears during drive, you don't have to put your hands inside the interior. In the mechanism there is a blockade preventing changing from 8th gear to 1st. I tried to make a detailed engine bay, there is working compressor and a cone air filter. Comparison with Lego's Mustang. I am really satisfied with this model. Despite limited amount of parts it turned out quite well. You can see that it's Mustang, what I think is the most important 😁 Instruction on Rebrickable Gallery Video
  4. Wow, I didn’t know that. It looks really interesting 😀
  5. Thanks! I meant clearance between axles. You are right directly under axle it’s much less than 4-5 studs, I should have described it better 😅 Thanks! The suspension is a bit different than normal, but I think that makes it a bit unique, only Tatra’s got this type 😁
  6. Tatra Phoenix 6x6 Specifications Length/width/height: 59s / 19s / 28s (47/15/22 cm) Scale: 1:17 Clearance: 4-5 studs Features Driving - 2L Steering - M Body lifting - L Independent suspension "Tatra type" on each wheel Fake in-line 6 engine Working steering wheel Openable doors and the cabin The model was made specially for Brick Creek exhibition in 2021. After a few corrections it can be finally published :) First, Tatra was supposed to be based on Control+ system (it would be then my first Control+ MOC). For driving there was one C+ XL motor. There was no power, so the solution was obvious - buwizz and 2 PF L motors :D The drive ratio is 4.32:1 - first multiplication gear20 -> gear 16, and then reduction by the planetary hub at each wheel. Beacuse of the scale and the suspension type there are no diffs, so the steering radius is not perfect. For steering there is M motor - the worm gear drives gear 8, and next by liftarm and links the wheels move. At the exhibition in 2021 I used gear rack, but it was too weack - the axles was unsliding all the time. This time I had to build something better, but the real test will come with next exhibition. Below is steering scheme, the yellow axle is driven and it moves the liftarm and links. The suspension is the main reason, I wanted to build the Tatra. It's mainly based on the planetary hubs and gears 12. At each wheel there is one hard 6.5L shock absorber. Below is a photo from the bottom. For lifting the body there is L motor and big linear actuator. The maximum payload depends on the distribution of the load :) The closer to the back of the body, the bigger it is, up to above 1 kg. Tatra also includes working in-line 6 engine. It is a bit too far back, but at least there is no need to open the cabin to see working pistons. There are dummy exhaust and intake. In the cabin there are two seats, simple dashboard and working steering wheel. Because of direct steering ratio and openable cabin the steering wheel makes only about half a turn. Thanks for your attention :D Gallery
  7. Thank you all for the nice words :D You are right about the side line, espesciallly at the rear. In real Audi the whole rear descends under a low angle, in mine only the engine cover. The limitation were the flat mudguards and the convertible roof mechanism, which took a bit of place. Yes, you are right. I want to make a RC version in dark blue. I think yes. If you remove the gearbox, there would be enough place for motors and worm gear with the clutch gear.
  8. Thanks :D Yeah, the two tones color was an impediment. After designing whole car I changed color of few elements to make it look more consistent.
  9. Audi R8 Spyder Specifications Length/width/height: 71s / 29s / 18s (57/25/25 cm) Scale: 1:8 Weight: 2293g Parts: 2701 Features Front and rear independent suspension 4-speed sequential gearbox Working V10 engine RWD Steered wheels by HOG Working steering wheel Convertible roof Openable doors, hood and engine bay A suitcase in the trunk Recently, a lot of alternative models have been created, so I decided to make mine :) I bought the 42083 in last year. I am big fan of automotive and supercars, so for me it was obligatory. After building the main model, I thouht that it would be cool to build something else. I set myself few goals: use only the parts from the set, improve the suspension and transmission (in Chiron it doesn't work perfect), reproduce reasonably realistic look and make a working convertible roof. At the beginning, I was building the Lamborghini Huracan. I built the chassis and the rear part of bodywork, but when I started building the front it was really hard to model it. In the Huracan the front nose goes really low, with a large angle from the bonnet. With using Chiron's mudguards there was a huge hole between them and the nose. It wasn't looking good, so I decided to make a different model. I haven't had to think long. Lamborghini Huracan and Audi R8 are quite similar. They belong the same group, both have V10 engine and similar dimensions. I started the building of Audi this time from the front, it looked quite good, so I was continuing the building of Audi R8. Here are some WIP photos. The car has steered front axle, by using the HOG with working steering wheel. There is no AWD, so the steering radius is quite good. In the front and in the rear there is independent suspension, in both based on liftarms 1x7. This is due the fact that with longer wishbones there is bigger leverage and the suspension is stiffer. For this reason too, there is no Quattro transmission, short wishbones used in Chiron create too little leverage, and trying to extend them ends up with a colission of the inside part of the wheel with the wishbone. Under the fake V10 there is a gearbox with "only" four gears. This is due to use the driving rings as a exauhst tips and maximum lowering of the V10 to place above it the roof. In my opinion more gears doesn't make sense, beacuse in 8-speed gearbox you can't see the difference in rpm of the pistons between next gears. The gears are changed sequentialy by a lever in the middle tunnel. In the mechanism there is a lock to prevent shifting from 1st to 4th gear and vice versa. The system of the gear change works on similar principle as in other MOCs of supercars - Charbel's McLaren 720s or T-Lego's Lamborghini Centenario. I think that this placing of the lever is better to use than the paddle shifters, esspecially that there is no roof. I think that the best feature is the convertible roof. Designing appropiate geometry of movement of the roof and engine cover was quite a big challange. I started the work from designing the movement of the roof itself, which had to avoid the seats. The next problem was the engine cover, which firstly had to move while opening the roof, and secondly I wanted to make it openable to show the engine bay. At the end I had to synchronize both movements so that the both elements do not block each other. The roof and the engine cover slide out with using some links, built from liftarms and connectors. The whole convertible roof mechanism took me above two weeks. While building it was important to me to replicate the details well. In the interior there are pedals, air-conditioning and at the driver's side a wall in the middle tunnel. In the real Audi R8 Spyder you can not look inside the engine bay, there is only a little cover at the end of the car, where are the basic fluids. However, I made openable rear cover to show the fake V10. I tried at my best to build the engine bay, and under the rear cover there is even an oil plug :) Chiron comparison. Thank you very much to Audi Poznań Franowo ASO for the interest and allowing me to take few photos with the real Audi R8. I am happy with this model. Despite limited amounts of parts the car is not bad. I plan to make a RC version in one color. Don't forget to watch the video! The Gallery Rebrickable

    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).
  14. 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.
