    Great work! Looks like it has pretty good steering lock considering the relatively small wheel arch. Do you know by any chance what the thing in light bluish grey on top of the cab is supposed to be? My best guess is that it props up the catenary wires while the tram is being moved.

    Good work! The area around the buffers looks superb!

    Excellent work so far! I have a few suggestions; Firstly I would try to incorporate part #48723 on the rear cross thing. If you don't want to use axle connectors you could use pneumatic tubing. Secondly, you can use part #2412 in chrome silver. I really like the red chassis! Just out of curiosity, are you modeling it after a K100 in North America, Australia or New Zealand?

    Sorry, but I don't see the difference. Only the cheese slope on top of the bumper.

    Unfortunately the only options that I know of are the brick 1x1 round and 2x2 round. I remember going through the same process of trying to find a better alternative for this piece for my models. Unless you want to use a light bar instead, I would just use the heads or the aforementioned alternatives. So what if they aren't perfectly orange; honestly it's even hard to tell that the heads are neon-orange. FYI I rescaled my MAN and created a 5 stud tall bumper that you might be interested in.
  6. Thanks for the review! I just think they should have made the truck as a licensed creator set and made a proper technic truck with a motorized container trailer.

    Thanks very much; glad you like it. The model can actually navigate R40 curves, albeit with serious overhang. If you really want to scale it to 6 wide, the correct length would be 40 studs, which can easily navigate R40s.

    The Jerry Seinfeld one really cracked me up! Very funny!

    Looks very nice. The combination of tan, red, and silver work well together. Does the truck have any suspension or pendular axles? Is the hydraulic cylinder on the “front” of the trailer for decoration only?
  10. @grego18f I have experimented with tandems for almost 2 years now and have found a simple fix for the slipping even under the greatest stress. Use part 42003 on either side of the 5x7 frame (with 2l pins)and connect the technic axle holes with axles and 7l beams. The 12 tooth gear should sit inbetween the two beams. There’s an lxf for download if you’d like here:

    I encountered a very similar problem a few days ago, but with all of the profiles. When I pressed start nothing happened and the second time an error message popped up. Turns out all I had to do was update my OS on my iPhone 6.

    This model really pushes the boundaries of what can be done with lego. I had to watch the video twice! I have a few questions in regard to the tracks. In the video it is obvious that you used custom built track links. How sturdy were these? Did you have any problems with the links breaking under the immense weight? Did you have any problems with the drive sprockets? Were any of the tread links scuffed after driving the model around? I'm also curious to see how you built the turntable.
  13. Looking good! however I am concerned that the front wheels will rub against the wheel arches when you attempt to steer. I would get two of the arch pieces for testing purposes before you purchase all of the parts. I would also take into account that it should also be able to steer when the suspension is compressed as well.

    Damn... that's... masterful! I'm most impressed by the wheel arch. Although I must say it does not look like a technic model in any way.
  15. I would opt to add the "glass" 1x2x2 for the sole purpose of structural integrity.
