    42113 Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey

    Not sure if this will work, but in one of my Facebook groups, someone had contact TLG customer service about the Osprey. They were told to send an email through Lego.com voicing support for the set. So maybe enough of us can drown out the few people complaining, and get this set released.

    I made some progress. Got the side panels done, and changed the brake lights a little. Also started on the shift mechanism. Right now it's too big and blocks the HOG.

    Yes, I think it is. I made the mistake of looking at too many entries before I started mine. If it is a problem, I might have enough time to change it. Yes, my scale is way off, but I wanted to have the transmission, and I could not find any way to shrink the wheel base without getting tall. I did manage to shrink the rear axle mounts by one stud: I also have a rear bumper

    [TC18] Deora

    The Dodge Deora has fascinated me since I saw an original Hot Wheel one in my uncle's collection. My entry is loosely based on the Deora 1 and Deora 2. Current functions: V6 (original had Slant-6, but that was too long) AWD without central diff Front independent suspension Live axle on rear with fake leaf springs to locate the axle 4 speed transmission Planned functions: Opening tonneau cover Opening front "door" Functional steering in cabin and HOG Gear indicator in cabin and HOG shifter Easily removed body I decided to do something different with the transmission. Because my nephew was disappointed in the speed changes of the traditional transmissions, I went with an automatic transmission layout, omitting reverse: Park, Neutral, 1, 2. Underside. Light blue beam is for Park. Rear axle Front axle wheel hub. Front wheel suspension travel. The front wheels are limited in travel to keep the frame from hitting the ground. After I built the front axle, I realized the black pieces made it hard to see details. If I get some time, I will rebuild it in light grey, but I want to finish the car first.

    Some more progress. Just not enough. Even with the extra time, I am unable to finish this by the deadline.

    Another update. Doors are on. Driver seat is in place. Don't need a passenger seat when wandering a wasteland alone.

    I was able to get much of the body work located. The roof and rear deck are finalized. Thanks @Jim for extending the deadline. I might be able to finish this one.

    I reworked the motor mounts and transmission to add 2 more L motors. This lengthened the chassis 2 studs. I finished the fake motor mounts on the front and added some gearing to connect a steering wheel to the servo.
  9. Hello. Here is my entry for the Mad Max Contest. My idea is a fast car to get in and out of dangerous areas. Current functions: All wheel drive 4 speed transmission Central and rear differentials lock when in 1st gear Independent suspension Ackerman steering I currently have 2 L motors mounted, but my goal is to use 6. I plan on having a winch on the rear that can double as a defense weapon with a large ball. Side view with body outline: Here is the rolling chassis with 2 wheels off. I still need to make the stepper for the transmission. Front suspension detail: Transmission underside, showing the central differential locker More WIP pictures can be found at http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=579178 once moderated.
  10. if the holes on either side of the 4l axle are empty, try part 15461, or a 3l beam and 2 friction pins, replacing the bush.
  11. Have you thought about reducing the number of 90 degree limiter is the shifter assembly? I was able to keep a pair of similar transmissions synchronized with just 1 90 degree limiter.
  12. Are ground effect vehicles and hovercraft allowed?
  13. Taking the drive for both motors for the fake engine should be unnecessary. If you take just one output to the fake engine, you should be able to simplify that area up. The drag on the one side from the fake engine should be negligible.

    As long as the cute bunnies take me to the next unread post in a thread, bunny on. That button seems to have disappeared. I'm using chrome on Android 7. Haven't check my desktop yet Edit: more info, the button is invisible.
  15. Here is a version of @Paul Boratko's 4 speed that I added an automatic lock to the central diff. The differential should lock in 1st gear. Blue is shifter input, yellow is drive input, and red is drive output. The orange wheels are the new orange selector. The yellow 12 tooth gears are the new extension ring. For some reason LDD would not let me mate the old style extension with the differential. It would also only let me use the white gear shifter connectors with ridges on the shifter, I could not use the red ones without ridges. The shifter input can come from either side. 1
