    MOC: Midnight Riders Technical

    Eh. To each his/her own. If I decide to rework my model, I will see about getting some TLG barbed wire rings, and brick-building the sandbags.

    Thanks for all of the kind comments. The barbed wire is actually a part from the Mega Bloks Call of Duty sets. I have found that some of those parts, despite their origins, are quite useful.

    MOC: Midnight Riders Technical

    I usually stay within the Town forum, however this truck that I am presenting to you today belongs in Sci-Fi. I used the Lego City 7213 Off-Road Firetruck and Fireboat as a base, and based it off of a Tatra T815 8x8 truck. 18 days after incident: Our gas was running low and we were nearly out of options. If we didn't find a new set of wheels or some fuel soon, we would never make it through the Sierra Nevadas safely. Chet suggested that we hit up a logging camp not to far away. The sun was just rising over the landscape when we arrived. In the far back of the camp, surrounded by looming cranes and harvesting equipment sat our salvation: a partially rusted 8x8 semi; it still had all of its wheels, and we were able to siphon enough diesel fuel from the nearby tractors to fill six jerrycans. Having reacquired transportation, we left our homes behind and headed towards the East Coast, or what was left of it. Finding the Technical by Ryn Labrie, on Flickr That was three months ago. So much has been going on that I haven't had time write up a proper report. Our small band of marauders has made good use of the truck we found in those mountains. We've armored it, weaponized it, and turned it in to a fighting vehicle that spits bullets like they're going out of style. Other survivors and bandits have smartly kept away from us as we roam about, looking for supplies and staying alive. Midnight Riders Technical Front Quarter by Ryn Labrie, on Flickr When we came across the smoking ruins of the largest survivor compound in the New Mexico Badlands, we gained the bulldozer blade from their barricade, and the stereo speaker. Johnny had the great idea of mounting the speaker to the roof, so we could "play some Wagner and freak the heck out of the locals." (a cookie to the person who names this reference) Midnight Riders Technical Front by Ryn Labrie, on Flickr The current armament of our ramshackle fighting truck consists of a pair of Browning M2A2 machine guns, a MK19 grenade launcher, an M1919 with Cobray 37mm flare launcher, a M60, a M134D minigun, a triple M16 turret, and last but not least, a Common Remotely Operated Weapons System (CROWS) fitted with another M2 machine gun. The .50 cals and the Mk19 came from a National Guard convoy, the minigun was found on a helicopter crash, and the other weapons were found on the road. Midnight Riders Technical Back Quarter by Ryn Labrie, on Flickr Also worth noting are the Hiab/Palfinger folding crane with manbasket and all of the spotlights that we've attached to our truck; we don't want any sneaky buggers tying to sabotage us at night. To keep the lights working, we have 10 car batteries mounted beneath the cargo area.

A pair of local yokels took it for us before we left the Idaho territory. I will send out another message when I have time. This is 1st Sargent Archer, signing off.

    Swing Loader with attachments

    *edit- I've actually found an implement that is very similar to my forklift mast. It is called the Tele-Fork and is made by Cheyenne Tooling. I've also discovered that the backhoe arm I saw:

    Police Recon Vehicle

    I seem to be going on a MOC-ing spree! "The police have themselves an RV!"- Die Hard Mine is based on the MOC by Mocpages member Death Metal. The only major difference between ours is that mine has a smaller and simpler Common Remotely Operated Weapons System (CROWS) mount. Police APC 1 by Ryn Labrie, on Flickr Police APC 2 by Ryn Labrie, on Flickr Police APC 3 by Ryn Labrie, on Flickr Police APC 4 by Ryn Labrie, on Flickr I also made a dual minigun turret for the times when more firepower is needed.

    Swing Loader with attachments

    Hello fellow forum members! Today I present to you yet another minifig-scale model that I have only seen represented in Technic; I have built a swing loader. Even though they are typically seen in around rail yards and train depots, swing loaders can be found in road only configurations. I decided to follow this approach with mine, as I did not have any train wheels or tracks. My MOC is a rather simplistic of the preexisting Lego City 7630 Front-End Loader. The only unique aspects of mine are the attachments . Swing Loader 1 by Ryn Labrie, on Flickr Swing Loader 2 by Ryn Labrie, on Flickr Swing Loader 3 by Ryn Labrie, on Flickr Swing Loader 4 by Ryn Labrie, on Flickr Swing Loader 5 by Ryn Labrie, on Flickr Swing Loader 6 by Ryn Labrie, on Flickr I based this tool off of a digging implement I saw mounted to a mini loader being used by a landscape contractor. Swing Loader 7 by Ryn Labrie, on Flickr Swing Loader 8 by Ryn Labrie, on Flickr This final image is mostly based off of a forklift toy that I'd seen in a store. I am unsure as to whether or not this attachment is real, however I felt that this model would not be complete without some form of pallet forks. Swing Loader 9 by Ryn Labrie, on Flickr Thank you for viewing and have a pleasant day.

    MOC: Sideloader and Pallet Truck

    Today I have a pair of MOCs that I deem the first of their kind on the internet. I felt that the world of Lego was lacking in little-known warehouse vehicles, so I built a Hubtex-style sideloader forklift and an electric pallet truck. I have only seen one other sideloader, however it was a technic model with power functions. Hubtex 1 by Ryn Labrie, on Flickr Hubtex 2 by Ryn Labrie, on Flickr Hubtex 3 by Ryn Labrie, on Flickr As you can see, my vehicle is heavily based on the Hubtex MQ40, however I placed the door on the back, and the wheels are unable to pivot. Hubtex 4 by Ryn Labrie, on Flickr Hubtex 5 by Ryn Labrie, on Flickr Hubtex 6 by Ryn Labrie, on Flickr The other model I built was an electric pallet truck.

    Greetings from Idaho, USA

    Hello Eurobricks! My name is Ryn and I currently live in Idaho, USA. I enjoy building town and other modern-themed MOCs. I also have accounts on the Brickarms Forums and Flickr, (both are named CommandoM82). C&C is always welcome as I would like to improve my designs and ideas. Here is a "technical" gun truck I built for a contest over on Brickarms Forums: Midnight Riders Technical Front Quarter by Ryn Labrie, on Flickr Thank you all and have a good day!
