    was able to do a render of the frame without the panels to show the construction along with a exploded view of how things come together

    Thanks. I wish i can do more with the b pillar since that is also where the roof panels would sit.
  3. Now that i have time i'm going to make ones of these. Maybe i'll make the flying ant

    Thanks! my original goal was to make something that i think the original 42056 should've been. Actually showing how the car is put together and easy to take apart. The pictures are not my favorite as they are taken with my phone. I have to find my dslr and take much better pictures with an actual white background and better lighting.

    I wouldn't want to be the guy that maintains that engine

    So I believe this is the final version of this build. I attempted to fix the ground clearance for the front of the car. The front axle was rebuilt using the shock configuration @Didumos69 created for the ultimate 42056. Also did some weight reduction. Was able to knock off almost 70 parts, most of it from the front end. It definitely helped as i was able to improve the ground clearance from 0 to almost 1/2 a stud LOL. now it can roll on the floor without scrapping the front. Part of the weight reduction i have also improved the windshield connection. Before it was weak and wasn't very fluid. Its now better integrated into the passenger body and allows me to remove the steering column with out affecting the windshield. I realized i don't have any video equipment other than my phone so i will just provide some clearer pictures. The rear spoiler Is manually operated Close up of the rebuilt windshield connection With the rear engine cover removed With all major panels removed and the front end removed. The frame with all the panels removed. I have to say this was a very enjoyable build as it being my first completed build ever. After spending almost a year on it i have grown attached and don't know if i'm willing to take it apart. I have event though of rebuilding the frame from module to a stronger/lighter frame or adding Power functions.
  7. Wow with that new front it now looks like a ramp you can just plow through opponents. It also looks small/ simple enough to even be a actual technic set kids would enjoy

    Thanks for the info. I'm actually using 2 shocks per wheel in this as you can see in the picture below. Other than the different color springs I can only say the most likely issue is the configuration. There's a over abundance in parts as I have it set to easily take apart. Something I would show in a video when I get a chance. I suspect if I built just a solid chassis it would be better? As I have it set to be modular I may try and build a new front axle that has a torsion bar as well

    So I am basically done albeit some minor adjustments to the shaping. It's been a tiring frustrating ordeal but fun at the same time. There's a major issue with the front and I believe its due to weight/shock strength. Don't know if I'm ever going to solve in this configuration. Without the hood there was still some spring but once that went on splat, flat on the ground. The rear thou doesn't have the issues thou. The main difference is that I am using 4 red springs in the rear and 2 red/2yellow in the front. I don't believe the red and yellow has any difference in spring strength so it most likely has to do with the placement. The hood connections could also be better but I can't seem to figure out how to improve it while keeping its shape. While I fret over theses details, Here some photos for you to enjoy until I get to settling down and learn how to make a quick video. Any suggestions on how to fix the front suspension would be great. The "easiest" fix would be to just rebuild the entire underbody as one chassis instead of modular

    Thanks! Thanks! I would love to see this finished as well. It's closing in on a year since I started the planning on this project Thanks! Your Aston build has provided me with a lot of techniques and solutions to this build

    Parts came in and after some time assembly, I realize I need even more parts since I made modifications on the LDD file after I put the order in lol with what I got I was able to finish the front end sans the headlights. The hood is off because I made the front axles wider and there is a berm that's now one stud too high so the hood is hitting it. Will make the changes soon so it fits smoothly i think other than the headlights, engine cover paneling and rebuilding one of the doors, I will be finished. Then I can concentrate on the PF modules and maybe rebuild it (leaving the paneling connections) and making it into a sturdy non modular car
  12. [MOC] Porsche 918 Spyder

    While i await for parts to arrive, i decided to start on the PF modules. It was tricky putting in the motor into the same space where the gear box used to be. I also don't think i will be able to fit a fake engine in there as well. I have 2 L motors and 2 XL motors but can only choose one setup as i don't have enough parts to build both modules. Probably going to have to swap the 2 L motors for 2 XL instead as i believe due to the weight the L motor will be too weak. hopefully i can setup the frame to easily change the motors out.
  13. It looks even better physically built compared with the renders
  14. [MOC] Porsche 918 Spyder

    Yes i know the headlights are too round. There is a very limited options on replicating them. There is only 1 part that i can possibly use but i don't have it and have not found any alternate options as of yet.
