  1. Hi guys, @ Jurss as far as i am informed the base for this is a transit mark 4 facelift. I'm assuming you talk about the 3L pins which are holding the hood in place. @proran i hope i can explain it: the whole front (cabin) is pulled by the big linear actuator and with some lifting mechanism the bed tilts down at the rear. I'm quite uncertain how the real thing does it but my model represents the motion quite good i think.... unfortunately i don't have own pictures/videos and i don't know if can link some which i didn't took myself. @Pato Sentado Thx for your kind comment. But i might ad that it's not only front engine, but also front driven and steered with a running fakeengine and differential. There's also a file of the thing i hope it's the latest of the latest iteration and maybe someone would like to have it? How do i share it? Greetings
  2. Hi folks, today i want to share with you my latest MOC. The towing truck from a car museum called Halle77 located in Dortmund Germany. It all started with me fiddling on a Frontaxle design with steering and drive and the question what to do with it back in february this year. I thought it would be perfect for a van / transportvehicle and while building an watching youtube the idea in my head was born to build the towingtruck of said location. The strange part about this partivular vehicle is the way it tips its bed. Instead of simply tilting the bed the whole truck bends its chassis. So the cabin and the bed tilt away from each other. This function is managed by this big linear actuator Between the rearaxle is a simple gearbox to switch to another function: extending the ramps from the bed Here is a picure from the belly And now more pictures from the almost finishid build. I've adjusted the position of the winch to be more inline with the real thing but i can't upload the pictures at the moment. Hope you liked / enjoyed it. If there's any questions feel free to ask. Thanks for watching!
  3. Than´k you astynax and Jurss for your kind commets. I've just rebuild some things on the front and ordered some parts to clean the colorscheme a bit. If the parts are changed i'll post an update. Does anyone know a good way to ad some octan and interior (dashboard) stickers? Is there a way to print some with an inkjet Printer?
  4. Hi guys, after several years of silence and other distractions i finally finished a new build. It's an AMG GT3 racecar in the colors of the Octan corporation. The only thing missing i guess is some sponsor decals from octan. The features are: - Drive and steering with powerfunctions (2 L motors, 1 servo) - Independent suspension on all wheels - Fake V8 engine - Working steeringwheel - Chassis is detachable from bodywork - openable bonnet/hood and doors Lately i'm a little bit into simracing and love to watch GT3 racing, so i decided to build my favorite car from this category of racecars. My availability of parts decided the colorscheme. I hope you like it. Enjoy building and have a nice time everyone. Rolf
  5. Another set with a similar mechanism is the Lego Creator Set 31011. There you can move the backwheel of the landing gear back and forth to spin the prop of the airplane.
  6. Hi Greg, at first i like to thank you. luckily i made some pictures during the build so i can show you the frontaxle assembly alone. The shocks are selfmade from lego parts and the spring comes from a lego shockabsorber which i had disassemblied. It's a shock design i've seen in a couple of other mocs from other people. Rolf
  7. Hello fellow brickers, today i want to introduce you into a new MOC i've started to build at the beginning of august. It's a Mercedes W123 coupé. The reason for me to build this car was one of my co-workers drives one and every once in a while he takes me for a ride in this beauty. But enough about the story behind. Here are some technical features. Power Functions: - 2L-motors for driving - 1M-motor for steering - 1M-motor for shifting gears Drivetrain and suspension: - fully independend suspension - ackermann geometry - kingpin inclination - casterangle - 3-Speed gearbox - RWD with differential - working straight 4 fake engine - working steering wheel Bodywork: - openable doors, bonnet and trunk I tried to upload at least 2 more pictures here but it won't let me do this.... so here is a link to mocpages for you: Thank you all for watching. Rolf
  8. Hey Block_Smarts, i faced the same issue in one of my Mocs. The Solution sounds rather simple you have to connect the shock absorber to the upper wishbone instead of the lower one. Hope it's easy to do so on your buggy. Try it an give a feedback please ;) Good Bricking roxXx5
  9. @ Busterhaus: I switched to the L-Motors because the fit better in there and after testing it a bit i think the performance is ok for this model it has enough torque to move forwards an a way better speed than with the two XLs. @ veryrusty: just made a picture for you of the drivetrain. As you may be able to see the one Motor drive a 24 double bevel gear which has a 12 teeth double bevel gear as a follower. The power is then transmitted to the input of the torsendiff. The outputshafts of the diff are then connected via two 16 teeth gears to the axlediffs.
  10. Update from me :) I've worked the last day on the drivetrain, the suspension and the in- and exterior a bit. The reworked drivetrain features now a torsendifferntial and i changed the two XL-Motors for 2 L-Motors which are geared up slightly. I've also placed a big battery box behind the seats in the cabin and closed the bed. With all the weight from the battery box and the cabin i was in need to harden the front suspension so i've decided to use 4 small hard shocks on the frontaxle. P.S. Thanks PeterF sometimes i wish i've got a DSLR for the Pictures so the presentation would be better but i'm stuck with a small compact camera.
  11. At first thank you all for your comments, compliments and critics. @Rishab N: Yes to fill the bed will be nice but will take me while to see what will look better technic panels or system plates. And i'll have to buy those parts but it's definitly on my to-do list. :) @Balrog: As you can see in the picture below i have reworked the front a bit. The first version even looked to messi to myself so thanks for your input. Now i like it much better. Hope you too. About the cabin height i can only say that's something i won't change. First because i like it the way it is ;P and second this is the height Sariel's scaling tool (big thanks for this if you read this) gave me. So here is the picture not a big update but progress is progress even if it's slow: Edit for TheNextLegoDesinger: The All-Wheel-Drive System VW had in this thing was called Syncro and was implemented with a Torsendiff between the axles and lockable diffs on each axle i'll try to get a torsendiff in there but the lockable front an rear differntials seem a bit more difficult to me because of the dimensions of my MOC but i'll have an eye on that. :)
  12. Looking great so far but i'm a bit worried about those grinding teeth which can easily harm sourrunding parts!
  13. Hey Ladies and Gentlemen, at this point i can't hold myself back and present to you my new project. This is a VW T3 Flatbed. The features i've implemented so far are 4 wheel drive with full suspension on all wheels. The whole thing is driven at this moment by two XL-motors. It has already mounted a 4 cylinder Boxer engine just like the real one, which isn't connected to the drivetrain at this point in construction though. For the headlights i've used the orininal Lego PF LEDs but the taillights are soldered 5mm LEDs because i haven't got more of the original ones and they are a bit to expensive for me. Steering is realized via one Servomotor. Hope you enjoy it and if there is a good idea just say it. Rolf

    Hi there Folks!

    I like to build vehicles the most and my favorite at this time is technic, but sometimes i build with normal bricks too or hybrids from both worlds. A few days ago i introduced a small technic excavator here on eurobricks.
  15. @ Jorgeopesi: Yours is great too. I like how you solved the movement of the shovel on yours. @ Jeroen Ottens: I think that it's possible to gear the rotation but i don't think it's necessary but that's just my opinion =D
