    [MOC] Backhoe Loader- 42054 C model

    Your C-models going better and better. I'd wondered, how you have done backhoe with limited count of actuators, and you've done it great. You deserve special C-model tag for those rows of C-models ;)

    What do you mean "smaller size"? It has 2500+ parts, 42054 was under 2000.

    This one is two studs narrower, then standard configuration.

    Plus 1 to this. Other then that, it looks nice, most of all I like rear axle and overall shape. I would put HOG on the rear frame of the roof, but it just matter of taste and it's good as it is, too.

    This is how it looks from the side, without and with BB. Maybe I'll try to put rear shocks one stud higher on the body later, but now I'm ok with how it is. Thanks As I've said before, your Class 1 buggy was one of my inspiration to build something with two L-motors. I'm really happy, that my theories, how to improve it's capebilities work well. There was some points of struggle to build it, as I wanted, but most of them I solved somehow, so I'm optimistic now to finnish it in short time.

    There is some progress on my RC buggy, it's not finnished yet, but I've made improvements on biggest performance issues. First of all I've shortened wheelbase(one stud in hinge of rear arms plus steeper angle of them). I've completely rebuilt rear arms. They are now stiffer and hinged by small turntables from inner side plus pin from outside, independently from driving axles. Now there is lot less friction in drive. When motors are unconnected, buggy rolls rather freely, when you push it forward. Before those changes it stopped almost immidiately. I also made some changes in front axle. I canceled front wheels drive, mainly because of poor steering angle. Now it's way better. I also adjusted position of suspension springs and their connection to body and arms. They had tendencies to bend, actual solution is better, although it's still not perfect. There are still lot of work to do, most of all I need to find proper position of battery box(and necessity of rebuilding frame little bit). Other than that is just to put somewhere M-motor for steering, finalize roof and make some final additions(steering wheel, seat, maybe driver :)) And finally I'll have to find som ways to lower weight.
  7. Nevermind, my post was reaction on Silvavasil's post, but I was too slow in finding image of that part. Yes, from those new pics of rallye car it looks like those panels are medium blue more likely, then dark azure. I can't tell, if it's good or bad, it mostly depends on every AFOL's collection. For me it's better, because I don't have 42070 and don't plan to buy it(maybe only if price will drop significantly unde 200€).
  8. No, it looks like this: which is not new. Edit: I'm too late :P
  9. I don't know, if it's just me, or there is no big LA on MACK A model, but two of them on B model
  10. It looks only as a sketch, but it's not bad. Somehow it reminds me old TV series for children - Skippy, the bush kangaroo :D
  11. What a great little model you made! :) I really like, how it's clean and simple(in the best meaning of that word), and also how you reduce pneumatic cylinders for minimum needed count. Very well done
  12. Great modification of already great buggy . Original was inspiration for my own build, which is still incomplete, hopefully I'll finish it this year. I also look forward to seeing smaller version.

    It took little more time, but anyway, I've added instructions of both of my GoCart models on rebrickable. Now I'm going to enjoy working on my RC buggy, so hopefully I'll make some progress on it(and share it here) in next couple of weeks.
  14. And what about these parts for steering - they are relatively cheap:
