  1. I'll post some progress photos here and I will see if i can make some better photo's for the topic. Here are some photo's i already had
  2. Thank you! I do, its a 1/16 scale model of a Kenworth W900A. It features a opening hood, doors, intergrated on/off switch, steering, drive and suspension. Ive used the new control+ system for the controls. I can post some more photos of the proces here if you like
  3. I thought I would share my latest build. It's the Kenworth W900A from Smokey and the bandit. Now I have to build the trailer too.
  4. Thank you for the compliment! That means a lot! He’s the reason I started making trucks like that, used to talk to him a lot. Sad he’s no longer with us
  5. I saw the thread about the trucks and thought I would share some of mine quick. They’re not all done yet but when they are I’ll be making a topic per truck, hopefully soon :)
  6. Times have changed, I myself also started with making scale models of existing trucks. I find the challenge to create something real with LEGO bricks very intriguing. But I have to say I miss the times when there were a lot of mocs that focused on the building experience and functions like instead of all looks. Also noticed that the paid Mocs and instructions are what people are going for these days, the creativity has been lost a bit in my opinion, lots of copy’s of existing models. Hard to say what the cause is...
  7. Looking a bit like a MAN tgs truck. Is it a 8x8? Or a 8x4? (Just saw the driveshaft, so it’s a 8x8) Looking good so far!
  8. Looking good! 1 question, I noticed you have some black rims. Did you paint those or are they another brand? I’m also building a truck and I need black wheels for that. Thanks!
  9. Looking awesome! Is there a topic already concerning the trucks? They both look good as well!
  10. This model looks amazing! I used to work at a Mercedes-Benz garage on these pagode’s and I have to say all the small details look great! Love the interior also, very regonising!

    MAZ 537 8X8 (WIP)

    Thanks! The original plan was to use the 5 stud length suspension arms but I don’t own enough of them so I used the 6 stud instead but mounted them in the fifth hole. Because of this all the arms going to the hubs are 5 studs long, front and back. So I guess you can say it’s done on purpose haha

    MAZ 537 8X8 (WIP)

    Took some photo's without the wheels to try and show how it's build... But it's still tricky to see and capture the axles and suspension setup. I guess i'll have to make a mock-up in LDD or build a axle similar to it and make some photo's of that. Next step is building a cabin for it. I made a version out of bricks a while ago but that had to be taken apart for some other models. Recently i got the 42110 Defender and the color matches the real truck really well, so i'm thinking of making the cabin out of techic also. The model uses 1x PF Medium motor for steering and 2x PF Large motors for driving. I tried different ways of driving the axles but found out that this solution works the best. The axles are 15 studs wide (without wheels) and it has independent suspension in the front and in the back it has double wishbone suspension connected with a horizontal bar that turns with the mini turnable. http://Untitled by J. van Veldhuizen, on Flickr http://Untitled by J. van Veldhuizen, on Flickr http://Untitled by J. van Veldhuizen, on Flickr http://Untitled by J. van Veldhuizen, on Flickr What do you guys think?

  13. Hi guys, after a while of being not so active on the forum I decided to share a MOC (still wip) of a MAZ 537 8X8 truck. When I saw the 42099 I knew I needed some planetary hubs, so I got myself 8 of them :). Around this time I started playing with LEGO again, but kept it at american trucks (which i will post later). I started making a simple axle, because I really wanted the independent suspension on all axles like the real truck has. After this I build a test chassis and one thing led to another and now I have a rolling chassis for the truck. I came across these actions photo's of the truck and i'm planning to make some more and better pictures of the drivetrain and such. http://MAZ 537 WIP by J. van Veldhuizen, on Flickr http://MAZ 537 WIP by J. van Veldhuizen, on Flickr http://MAZ 537 WIP by J. van Veldhuizen, on Flickr Will keep posting updates! Have a nice evening, Legotechnicus

    Kenworth K100

    That’s a great looking truck there! Love the details and the functionality! And also the small diorama makes a great scene
  15. To be honest, don’t think I will get this one. It’s not visually appealing and the functions are just not there for me, at least my wallet is happy about that haha
