  1. Small update: The body is coming together with red panels
  2. UPDATE: new fotos In this third part I more or less finished the internal structure of the main body, I got all the main functions working: 1XL for luffing, 1XL for swinging and 1 L for hoisting and lowering. I also completed the boom and reeved the wires, and installed the hook with a provisionary container lift module. Now that there's quite some weight on the base of the crane, I noticed that the outer wheels are lifted somewhat and that the weight of the crane mainly sits on the 8 inner wheels. That makes driving with the bogies turned somewhat difficult. Driving in a straight line is going fine. Outriggers and struts work fine. I must say that the base isn't flexing that much due to the weight of the upper structure. Also I managed to distribute the balance nicely between the boom and the body, even with the boom fully lowered. Final step is finishing the body and the base with panels, finishing the boom because it's still not 100% solid and adding cosmetic extras. when everything is done I'll make a video.
  3. UPDATE: New fotos The 4 outriggers are ready, apart from some touch ups. The outriggers are working fine. The wheelbase is also finished and it only needs a cosmetic finish so everything looks nice and smooth, also I'm going to add a cab for the driver of the wheelbase. Next I started work on the main mast/tower. I'm untill now very pleased how it turned out, the tower also needs the final cosmetic addons (lights, ladders, etc) next foto is a front view, I don't think I'll close everything up with panels due to the mounting of the LA Next foto is a provisionally mating with the base to check overall proportions And a few closeups... Next step is the main body with the winch and the slewing mechanism. I think I'll do the main body in red... Hope you like it thus far
  4. Otherwise the LA's wouldn't extend or retract and the endpiece would just turn around. the halfbeams keep the foot in a certain direction and so the piston can go up and down
  5. Hello Everybody, I started since long with an ambitious MOC, a mobile port crane. I'll try to make it to a finished product, parts and motivation permiting. I'm not so good at inventing new models from scratch and design them well. but here goes... It will be sort of a combination between to models, one frome Liebherr and the other from Kone cranes. My model has 8 sets of 2 wheels, all of them are steered and 2 sets of wheels are driven by an XL-motor. The Steering mechanism is driven by an L-motor. The outriggers are also driven by 2 L-motors. In the above picture, the 4 centre bogies were driven, but I already changed the design, so only 2 are driven now, and the drive itself has been changed also. The centre outrigger mechanism and the outriggers are based on the design of IVAN MOCS concrete pump. Here two outriggers are completely finished, I'm waiting for spare parts to finish the other 2 outriggers. in this foto I already put the slewing arrangement based on the one from the 42082 RTC.
  6. I think this colour scheme is also highly doable with current piece inventory
  7. Hello All, My MOC is finished, Here are the last fotos, video is in production. Here you can see the rig in transport mode, inside the door you can see the battery box which drives the winch and the turntable. The controls were modified by my son. as last a size compairison with the 42082, I think the two are more or less the same scale. Hope everybody like it and the video is coming soon
  8. Yes indeed it is, in the previous moc it was also the same cabin
  9. Hello All, Another new MOC using the XLAs, I'm giving the rotary drilling rig another go, My last attempt at it was not really succesfull and remained unfinished. So Here it is: the rotary drilling rig MKII Most parts come from the Liebherr excavator including all but one control+ motors, and it has 2 control+ battery boxes. The trackbase is borrowed from flybum's volvo excavator. Here are some WIP pics, any comments are always welcome Two XL-motors and 1 control+ receiver are situated in the trackbase 1 XL-motor is used for the normal LAs in the base frame 1 L-motor is used for swivel 1 L-motor is used for the winch and 1 L-motor situated in the frame is used to drive the XLAs to move the leader up and down For the paneling I'm recycling panels from the Liebherr excavator. Normally I'm going to install 2 extra motors with a conventional battery box and IR or sbrick receiver. Other pics will follow

    42107 - Ducati Panigale V4R

    Bad quality control Here are some images of the part 6010864 which I had 1 really bad and 3 with defective molding but still usable, seems Lego is dropping the ball big time in quality control.

    [WIP] Electric Rope Shovel

    Hello, glad you liked it, but i don't have instructions
  12. Hello everybody, I decided to put the new XL LA's on the 42082 RTC and now I think the crane looks a bit more realistic.I modded the boom with 9L red beams to look a bit 'bulkier'. With the new actuators I could put a support for the boom in drive mode. I also put an extension for the boom for this extra 'reach', I could only do this with the new LA's so the main boom can be more vertical and that the 2nd stage doesn't bend too much. The 2 pins that hold the extension in place can be stored in the base The support can be folded downwards so the upperstructure can rotate 360° The normal boom is extendable with the extension in its storage space The angle of the extension can be adjusted manually I only heve to install the string and the hook (need longer string)

    [WIP] Electric Rope Shovel

    So it's finally done... I have finished my electric rope shovel mkII. I must say it looks quite good, the body houses 2 electric motors, one XL which drives the winch and one L which drives the winch for the unloading flap, the third L motor drives the arms or the 'sticks', this one sits in the ladder itself. The excavator uses the 2 control+ hubs and all is controlled with the Buwizz App. In the end the upper structure is still well balanced, and the weight is distributed evenly. I hope you liked the MOC/MOD

    [WIP] Electric Rope Shovel

    Dear All, With the advent of the Liebherr excavator, I wanted to give a new go to build a new rope shovel excavator, which I'll name rope shovel MkII. The last crane remained unfinished, I stopped when I had to do the panelling. This time I'll use the trackbase of the Liebherr and the shell of the main body, the rest I'll try to build myself. For now the main boom is in an advanced stage of completion. The goal is to use the new motors later on. For testing I Installed an L-motor but this is not definite. Here are the first pictures The next picture is sort of a MOC-up Comments are always welcome
