    [MOC] Race Truck MkII

    Thanks for the tips...just I don't have Instagram!;-) (I'm starting to feel old) I had many request of it, that's one main reason why I decide to do the MkII with instructions. Unfortunately I can't do a side by side test (I have no more servo an Buwizz available at the moment), moreover I'm fully into the Tow Truck MkII Instructions (a hell), but I'll take thisinto consideration.

    Great loss of a great inspirational and talented person. For sure he has left a sign on many of us.

    [MOC] Race Truck MkII

    I agree, some stickers could enhance a lot the appearance, just I don't know even from where to start!

    [MOC] Race Truck MkII

    Hi to everybody I built this moc for the Model Expo Italy, it's simpler compared to what I usually build, but funny to play with. Due to the 2 BuWizz and the 2 Buggy motors it is fast but a bit too much expansive. To avoid this, it's possible to use, as alternatives, SBrick or IR receivers feeded by Li-Po battery or Classic Battery Box, and use 4 L Motors instahed of the 2 Buggy motors, obviously with performance reduction. The instructions of the main model are alkredy available, the "alternatives" are under development, but them will be released in a short time (hopfully). I hope you will enjoy it: More pics here: https://flic.kr/s/aHsmFvvrxX More info here: http://www.lucioswitch.altervista.org/race-truck-mkii.html

    42099 - 4x4 X-treme Off-Roader

    I swapped the gears that you can see in your last pic (on both axles), now it's a bit slower, but it climbs a lot better.

    [MOC] Tow Truck MkII

    True, the space is not really a problem, at least not the big ones! The scale should be between 1:10-1:11...more or less. Well, I have to say that it drive and steer, but I don't know how good and for how much it can do that before broke something in the drive train. In fact it can't tow almost anything. Sure I take things from my previous built, and I'm sure that I take inspiration from some others builder (I don't think I invented anything). It's not totally new since it uses the chassis of a previous Moc, but, beside this, whit the exceptions of the seats and the tilting cab, everything is mechanic (not usual to me), and there are plenty of solutions that I never used before. Said that, if you are disappointed, I'm sorry and I'll try to do better next time.:-) A smaller one...a simpler one!:-) Ehhh...a sort of...to be clear, rims, outrigger pads and the crane turntable concept comes from the 42082.:-) No more pics, sorry, but yes the BI will be available, hopefully this year...maybe for the beginning of the next.

    [MOC] Tow Truck MkII

    Hi to everybody, lately I'm not really active here, well I'm not really active on Lego in general, but I'm still in business! So here it is my new moc: More info here: http://www.lucioswitch.altervista.org/tow-truck-mkii.html?cb=1559253466743 I hope you like it.
  9. No, you should not be the admin...anyway, shared for you!
  10. I can confirm what you say! I don't know, but I can say that some times ago I was contacted by an non well defined chinese company that would have buy my projects, to be honest the offer was not bad at all, I don't know if there was Lepin behind, but the suspicious was very high, so I declined. Personally, I take into consideration the fact that my BI will be stolen, or even simply shared between a bunch of people, in a way or in another...that's internet (or better the people on internet). But I also believe that without internet I would not sell them at all. And since my hobby is largely financed by the sales revenue of BI, without it, I could not afford to do the Mocs I've done in recent years. Also I must say that I found the AFOL community, in general, united, I have received several times reports of "fraudulent conduct" by AFOL...not all the hope is lost! This does not mean that certain situations do not bother, some definitely more than others, but I think that, if possible, it's better to don't worry about to much, take the good things and let the bad thinks go. I find absurd to save 10 or 20 euros on something that (in my case) costs 2000 euros in parts.

    Full Size Bugatti Chiron out of LEGO

    No problem at all! We are just talking!
  13. Maybe not this one, but yes the model is this. Don't get me wrong, the comparison would be a personal thing to be satisfied by what I built. Yes, it's pretty squared, but I think that (takin the picture you posted as example) it needs the rib on the bonnet and the same on the sides, otherwise it would appear as a soap box, more than the real car already is. I didn't gave up, but you will see a new truck before it for sure....I just have to finish the BI of the Dakar Truck and than back at work on a new MOC...or, since my porsche is partially dismanteled and the manual version of your Moc....

    Full Size Bugatti Chiron out of LEGO

    I think that you might have confused me with someone other. Never said that it's a waste. In fact I don't hate it, I don't even dislike it, actually I like it, I just hate this Idea of a fully functional lego technic car in 1:1 scale, becouse it isn't, but it's what I read almost everywhere (automotive/nerd sites). Yes, I didn't mentioned, but i like too that there isn't glue, I like the pattern of the skin, the overall shape and, as a sculputure, is realy cool, I even apreciate all the effort and passion, but tell me, what's happen in this Technic forum, if I do a new Lego big truck but using a metal frame as a base, what will be the commentary? If I would be in that meeting, I would say, what if we stay on our businnes (that's not kart-car dressed with lego) and we build a static model in 1:1 scale where people can get (potentially) in and out, maybe with some "simple" functions with the same philosopy of the tachometer and the rear spoiler made out only with technic parts? About waste, cost and whats else, I don't know the background, so it could be even commisioned by Bugatti and it could be all payed by them. Said this, I'm not here to try to change the opinion of anyone, becouse it would be simply wrong. I'm just expressing my feeling about it. P.S. Right now the car is at the Monza circuit for the F1 week-end and then it will be in Milan for some days. Yesterday, around the 11th-12th comment it was "hot".
