  1. Thanks, I was quite surprised how well the mechanism works. Thank you! I'm afraid that usage of 3/3/3 tiles are impossible, 2x1 tiles are the only solution because they have no studs on bottom side.
  2. Hello, I'm back in business after some years of dark age and I want to present you my new MOC, which is actualy a facelifted version of my older rat rod presented here years earlier. The model is build from scratch using current pieces and building techniques, sharing the main concept with its predecessor. Model features drag link steering operated steering wheel in cockpit, openable doors, detailed fake engine and fuel tank. I hope you will like it!
  3. thanks for your comments I added some reference pictures in the first post
  4. Hello, let me present you my latest MOC, it is Model Team version of the "Baja-Boot" desert racer. The original car was built by Vic Hickey in 1967 for the race Mexican 1000 which came to be known as the Baja 1000. The car was driven by Steve McQueen and Bud Ekin. In the first appearance the car unfortunately retired, but it has long racing history with the victory in 1969. Now the Baja-Boot is owned by petrolhead James Glickenhaus the owner of many interesting pieces. The lego version features HOG steering with the spare tyre, fake engine with exhaust pipework and some characteristic details of body and interior. PS: thank to member erix for posting his technic version of Baja-Boot which compelled me to finish this MOC after almost a half year of catching dust. Edit: few pictures of real car
  5. beautiful baja buggy , I have the WIP project of the same car in model team style but in smaller scale I hope to make some time to finish it during christmas
  6. 15. Ancient Greek Crane Functions: - two simple winches, each powered by 1 PF M motor - efficient pulleys set up link for discussion topic: http://www.eurobrick...howtopic=116040
  7. Great entry! I like the whole "steel" structure and the movement mechanism of the arm. Very original creation :)
  8. I made progress with appropriate color scheme and made both remote control and manual versions manual crane works well, but the tail is too light and it tilts under load... I tried to build some counterweight with bricks but it is still too light. So the motorized version is the final one.
  9. Thanks for advices, I think can make a manual version too with no problem The main advantages why I choose motorized version was the significant weight of batteries and motors which is good for stability and the possibility to lock the winches with worm gear but these problems are easy to solve
  10. great compact crane, I can't wait to see more pictures and it looks like my favourite good old 8460
  11. Thanks for the kind words I was thinking about one of these beasts, but as I am limited on parts I decided the older version , good thing is that the principle is pretty much the same Go for it JJ2! lets make our own category Thanks Moz, I hope it will be quite efficient too. I am planning lifting capacity test as the model will be complete.
  12. Hello, my entry for the latest contest will be ancient greek crane like this one. And here are some photos of my current progress. The design is very simple but it is how it should be... it's a bit rainbow now because I don't own much technic pieces but the order is placed and I hope that new parts will arrive soon. I decided to motorize it with Lego PF instead of original human power - motors and battery box will act as counterweight. And yes, that red tile with flame on it is PF receiver dummy :D
