  1. BWSM 80 was a prototype of a "sanitary" vehicle created by combining the DT 75 bulldozer with a GAZ 53 cab. I've found its picture in the RU-net already a few years ago, but it waited for its turn in a folder with inspirations. It used to be orange Porsche that I could build Zila 130 now from blue Bugatti I made Gaz 53. I wonder if a new secular tradition was created? Three weeks of holiday in the countryside was enough to build this 60 cm model. There were several challenges in the construction. Weight, the model could not be too heavy because it had to rise and ride on tracks. It determined the entire construction. I could not use too many PFs, a complicated suspension, fake engine under the hood and details of the interior. The biggest challenge arose, how to use the two PF-L to master the drive in three variants. 1 Only wheels 2 Only caterpillars 3 Wheels and tracks simultaneously For a good balance, the motors and Battery Pack are at the end of the vehicle. In front of the PF L motors there is a system of three gear boxes, two of them transferring the drive from the PF l motors directly to the caterpillars or to the rear wheels (one motor ) and the front axle turning (the second motor). The right motor, however, is attached to the second gearbox in front of the drive wheels of the caterpillars. With it, you can drive the right caterpillar "from the front" simultaneously with the wheels. To drive left caterpillar you need, the fourth box which is placed at a 90-degree angle to the others and uses a blue 2o zgear from Bugatti. It is just transferring power from the right engine to the left caterpillar. A completely different challenge was to make this 2.5 kilogram move efficiently on relatively short caterpillars. Obtaining the right stiffness required a lot of mass tests. The model lifts up a single PF M handle thanks to a double worm gear with toothed wheels with z 40 and two clutch z 24. Another difficulty was the fact that when lifting, you have to compensate with the tensioning wheel changing the caterpillar tension. I got the desired effect thanks to the system which, when moving the main lifting arm by 9 studs, shifts the drive wheel axis by only 5 studs. In addition, the tension is supported by four small shock absorbers. To make the vehicle lightweight I decided to simplify the suspension and the use of leaf springs, there are also no extras such as the fake engine under the hood or the detailed interior of the cabin. I only added lights in the front. I hope you like it and I look forward to your comments.

  2. Wow, a lot of motors. Impersive control panel.
  3. No for sure not. I do not have this model anymore and i prefer to build models than to create instructions for them.
  4. Mercedes Zetros in the version of an extreme expedition vehicle was created two years ago. It was supposed to be a model to put on a shelf. Therefore, it has no drive and remote control. However, he is not completely devoid of life. One PF M motor through the gear box drives three different model functions. Winch, side ladder and rear platform with motorcycle and spare wheel. The motorcycle is an old set of 8251 in slightly changed colors, because it perfectly fit in dimensions. The car was based on the Unimog chassis, which was extended, reinforced and supplemented with a few details. The gear box and the engine have also been rebuilt. The cab and body along with the mechanisms were created completely new, in the model of a real vehicle. I tried to keep dimensions and faithfully reproduce the original. Dimensions 68 cm X 20 cm X 30 cm
  5. Thank you for positive feedback. I am working hard on the next model.
  6. Desert Skidoo for REY in scale 1:8 Built especially for Rey, thanks to the appearance of technic panels in new camo colors. Powered by Buwizz, and two buggy motors, it's really fast. The PF servo is responsible for steering. The front has independent suspension, the drive belt also has two shock absorbers. it deflects independently in both the front and rear part. Similar to real skidoo. It is inspired by desert variants of SAND-X scooters. Movie [media] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hjUT0kRm6WE [/media] Length 38 cm Width 19 cm Height 19 cm Weight 800 g

    Do you mean buwizz ? Because all the rest is 100 % Lego.

    Astonishing. These models only need better photos
  10. I think Mack will be dark bluish grey.
  11. Nimr Ajban SOV was created as a result of the development of the chassis that I built to test the steering system based on parts from the 42055 excavator. The problem is the width of this solution which limits the use of the chassis even at a scale of 1: 8. Therefore, from the beginning I was looking for inspiration among military vehicles. However, these are usually heavily armored and i was afraid that the ready model will be too heavy. When I hit the NIMR Automotive products from Abu Dhabi, I immediately caught a glimpse of AJBAN special operations vehicle. It had the right width, desert camouflage, proper tires and an open body. The cool aggressive design of the bodywork fit well to technic parts, especially since I have a lot of yellow panels. Initially I had plans to equip it with a winch, a machine gun, working steering wheel, and other extras. But soon it turned out that without it the weight is approaching 4 kg and the model becomes sluggish. So I gave calm and I thought of Arnold passing through sunny California in his Hummer. Why would not the Sheikans have been able to bring their falcons to the wilderness with a civilian version of AJBAN. The model does not have any special offroad performance, but on flat surface it is quite speedy. The advantage is that there are no moving parts, so if Lego had strong motors of similar size, it could be a fast vehicle. Drive 4 x PF L Turn 1 x PF L Power 2 x PF Battery Pack Tires.

    Thank you for the positive feedback. It's funny that you mentioned Lambo LM 002 because I'm working on this model.
  14. I used to build such a simulator on small pneumatic cylinders

    I am not sure if someone did that before but i made that conection and it works well. I think there is no stress beetwen bricks and it could be usefull for wheel arches etc..

  18. Yes, doors click into place when closed.
  19. Instruction for steering system of this model is now available on youtube.

    This model will be very heavy. But changing schocks it is not a problem at all.

    It was already published in the other topic but i think it has to be here.
  22. You are right in this example the pivot point is still at the inner side of the wheel , but this suspension is easy to modify it is enough if you will replace liftarms in the swingarm for shorter ones. And pivot point will move closer to the center. I am thinking about RC motors or PF L motor in vertical position. All is simple if you do not need front wheels to be driven. Whole system is very strong and there is no looseness.
