  1. Oh my, this is godly! The amount of functions you've managed to cram in is stunning and the looks are mesmerising.
  2. Thanks for the kind feedback, guys Yes indeed, three gears for two meshes. There's a tad more play than you'd have normally, but it doesn't seem to affect playability. Yep. The model's really light, so even with the cherry picker or dump bed modules it still stays perfectly upright during play. The lack of rear springs would definitely be an issue on a heavier model or with larger modules, though - the claw module almost tips it over Ha ha, spot on The first dump bed prototype was "fair" but looked hideous once it was mounted because of the huge gap between the truck and the bed. By the way, I wouldn't have found out about those tyres if it weren't for you, so thank you again That truck looks terrific! I hope you manage to work on it again and finish it.
  3. This is a basic multifunction truck - shamelessly copied from a previous MOC of mine - with RC drive (XL), steering (servo), outriggers (M) and auxiliary (L) motor for powered attachments, as well as pendular suspension on all axles. The model uses an old BuWizz 1.0 unit. It's designed to accommodate a number of attachments; here, we see it with a dump bed, a cherry picker (basically a carbon copy of Anto's - what a masterpiece he crafted!) and, just for shits and giggles, the claw from 42144 in black&yellow livery. Plenty of room for improvement but a fun model nonetheless.
  4. Thank you! Loved your review, by the way
  5. So is that standard or neon yellow?
  6. @grum64 and @Jundis - I'm so sorry for your losses. You're both terrific people and the kind of sons a father would be bloody proud of. Clive, that's awesome news about the 2800! Looking forward to seeing some pics.
  7. Love this There's too much going on in the drivetrain for my admittedly limited brain to process but it all looks like fun - there's something childlike (NOT childish!) about the build that, to me at least, is just priceless. It's pure instinct and enjoyment One question from the kingdom of silliness 'cause I can't figure it out for the life of me - how do the springs in the two axles from the two motors in the middle affect the drivetrain's efficiency?
  8. Why oh why did I miss this until now? What a gorgeous model - I love every single thing about it, from the sheer boatload of functions down to the tiniest aesthetic detail. This would be a phenomenal official set with massive educational value. Bloody well done, Jundis
  9. Available parts for Italy are actually fewer than last week. And my PaB order from early August has vanished into thin air.
  10. Great pics, Clive Your Bill Bryson story had me in stitches. Gotta get my grubby mitts on that book.
  11. That's a great first MOC! Did you design your own PU code for the gear shifter? If so, could you share it?
  12. @karmadrome She's a beauty! I took a few pics of my tow truck family today. The red one's probably gonna be torn down and rebuilt to work with BuWizz and planetary hubs, so this is likely its swan song.
