    [TC17] Hard-Knock Life [Finished Entry!]

    I am back from a short vacation, and I've started editing a video, which should be up within the next week, hopefully.

    Yeah, there is a lot more I would have liked to add... Sadly, no time for anymore than I did. Again, perhaps over spring break or the summer, I can add more to it.

    PHOTOS!!! High-quality, well-lit photos! Spent some time outside today filming and taking photos, so here are the final photos you have been waiting for! More photos are posted over on my Flickr account if you want to see more this beast. A video will be coming soon! Stay tuned! - Leonardo

    Cool, thanks.

    2015 pneumatic switch vs the old style one

    It is a bit of both. The more you use them, the more the stiffness goes away. However, having both kinds of switches, the new 2015 variant is quite a lot stiffer.

    Beautiful Ford GT, the livery is well done, as is the bodywork shaping. I just wish the red stripe went all the way around the car to complete the look. @JamesJT Also, your rebrickable link goes to your Flickr page.

    Hello everyone! This is my final build update: I found a spare bit of time to add some more details (lights, railings, chains, etc) and finish the wiring and controls. I'll have high-quality photos posted sometime tonight, and then a video hopefully in the next week or so. Be watching for an entry post! I had an awesome time with the build, this is by far the largest build I've ever done, and probably the coolest one aesthetically. There are things I would change, if I had the time... For example, it has some articulation in the center, between the cab and crane, but the joint is not strong enough to support the vehicle when lifted; it makes some beams flex too far for my liking. I would have liked to add some turntables, for some real support and sturdiness, but alas, no time... Same thing for the front axle, it should be better secured, and there is a lot of slack in the steering. In addition, the fake engine has been disconnected from the drivetrain as it added too much friction. Besides, you can't see the pistons move anyways... I also would have preferred to hide the IR receivers more, but I have no space to do so. in the end, I am happy with the build, especially with its completion in the time that I had. Perhaps over the summer, or even spring break, there will be more changes... Kudos to @Didumos69 for the original design front axle design, albeit modified. Thanks also to @nico71 for his inspiration with the bodywork design. Finally, thanks to those guys who gave their suggestions and comments along the way! To everyone competing in TC17, good luck and enjoy the building! - Leonardo

    Thank you, and best of luck to you! I actually use a PC that I custom built myself, but thanks for the suggestion. @Mechbuilds I'll see what I can do, but most of you out there should be able to do some reverse-engineering...

    @Mechbuilds I feel the same way, it could definitely use more detailing. I wanted to add railings and other bits... But sadly, I am out of time. I return to college tomorrow, so I will use what time I have to film my model and to pack. Sometime soon, I hope to have a video up, and then I will post my entry topic. Feel free to ask questions and such, as for instructions, should enough people desire, I will see about making an LDD or Stud.io file.

    Thanks! That means a lot coming from you. @Didumos69 I looked up the Movavi Editing Software, and it looks like I can get a free trial, or a free download of a limited suite of software. So thank you! I might PM you further questions, if that's alright with you? Thank you! I spent at least 2 hours on the exhaust piping. Surprising, the central joint is not as sturdy as I would like. It's something I want to change, but don't have time to fix. Everything else is pretty sturdy, but the cab has angles, so it is kind of fragile. As for the flames... I ran out of big ones. Thanks, glad you like them! The wrecking ball parts are from the old Hero Factory set 6203: Black Phantom.

    This is my last update, as tomorrow I will be filming, then packing my bags to head off to school. Can anyone recommend free, easy-to-use video editing software? I completed the crane this afternoon, a rather old-time truss-frame kind of a thing. With a spiked wrecking ball, as promised. Thus, my vehicle has lived up to it's name... As you can see from the photos... I need to go furniture shopping. It no longer fits my shelf. In either length or height... Shoot. I forgot to wash the blood off the shelf after that... incident. Honestly, no idea what that is. Just thought I'd mention it before someone else did. Better photos will be coming tomorrow, along with a video in the near future. Thanks to all for your input and advice over the course of this build! - Leonardo

    Alright, quick update: I had to make some changes to the drivetrain, those are now finished. Once the chassis is reassembled, I'll do some drive tests. I have also been working on the crane arm, which is now on it's 3rd iteration, and feels decent enough to keep. I'll try to have photos up later tonight... As right now, I have several large pieces of vehicle laying all over the place.

    Alright. I'll be honest, I forgot this was a B-model, so yeah, you don't have much left to work with. Good luck!

    I approve of the giant shark on top. I have no idea what purpose it could serve, but it just works.

    I saw the video a few days ago, I've been watching for your topic. I really like your design, fitting in all the necessary functions to make it a technical model, but without compromising on the aesthetic appearance and bodywork. I also like the modular design. It is something I have always wanted to achieve, yet I have been unable to manage it this far. Kudos to you.
