    [MOC] The Earth

    This is really nice work and thanks for the explanation on how you projected the continents. Any plans to make a globe stand?
  2. There are some great entries in this competition. 3: 10 5: 6 4: 4 10: 3 12: 2 11: 1
  3. Wow, I'm blown away with the final result. All the functions look to work really well in the video. Well done, great entry.

    [MOC] Liebherr LTM11200 crane

    I think if we want a fully functional model then we would need to change the objective. One objective here was to use the max 8 channels for the PF IR, so to get all the functionality there is a lot more gears, axles, switches (all adding weight). All these components have to deal with the combined weight of the MOC and there is a lot part strain, gear slippage and/or just not enough torque from the motors. Even if we got more torque I imagine we would only end up destroying axles, universal joints etc. Individually the functions work pretty well e.g. the carrier drive, steering, outriggers work very well until you add all the weight from superstructure and boom. I think that If we remove the restriction of 8 channels and directly motorize the functions and use 5+ sbricks we would have a good chance of getting a working model. We could also change the turntable to use similar concept to the Lego Rough Terrain Crane, however we would need to change the scale of the model to accommodate the 1/4 circle gear racks. The boom itself would need to loose some weight and I would probably sacrifice the support legs. I have achieved something like this when I built a MOD version of the crane by Peteria on ReBrickable: Having built several MOC cranes now I can see all the pros and cons of the techniques used and one day hope that I have time to build my own creation (most likely in retirement!) For anyway attempting this MOC, don't say that Jeroen hasn't warned you of the limitations :-)

    [MOC] Liebherr LTM11200 crane

    Today I finished the boom section, making four MODS i) made the boom one stud higher so that I could run the axles on the inside and thus close the top of the boom with panels ii) filled the sides of the boom whilst maintaining the axles for lowering the support legs, this has made the boom much sturdier (and a bit heavier) iii) changed the design of the end of the boom where the pulleys are connected iv) modified the stabilizer arms to look more in proportion and allow for stickers I also figured out how to link photos to Flickr :-) IMG_1996 on Flickr IMG_1991 on Flickr IMG_1985 on Flickr IMG_1988 on Flickr

    [TC15] Fairey Rotodyne (video!)

    Thanks for uploading the final video. The design and features are really nice. This is going to be a tough competition, I like a lot of the MOCs.
  8. Nice evolution in design, it's looking very good. I look forward to seeing the final entry.

    [TC15] Lego 852 Studless Version

    Very nice. I enjoy seeing MOCs that pay homage to the originals. Makes me very nostalgic for the Technic I had as a kid.
  10. Starting to see some of the final designs and video entries. I've been fascinated on the different approaches that have been taken in designing a Technic aircraft. Looking forward to the final vote.
  11. You chose a very challenging design to try and replicate in Technic. The final result definitely beat my expectations on how it would be achieved. Really nice video for the competition entry.

    [TC15] AH-77S - HUNTER

    Another great design for the competition, been really interesting following the design evolution. Nice side-by-side comparison with my other favorite entry :-)
  13. I've been following this entry and enjoyed each update to the design. The final result is really one of my favorites for this competition. Well done, looking forward to the final video.

    Completed the superstructure. Just a couple more days needed to make some MODs on the boom. IMG_1958 on Flickr IMG_1966 by on Flickr
