  1. Hello everyone and happy new year 2022 ! Building instructions are now available on Rebrickable : https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-96897/Levihathan/poclain-hc300/#details I've achieved the book with subassemblies sequence : See you soon !
  2. Thank you ! Yes, designers understood how to mix up sport car and Neo-retro style. I read this article (in French) to learn more about the car details : https://www.automotivpress.fr/essai-jannarelly-design-1-une-emotion-francaise/
  3. Yes I created a custom profile in PU app but I don't know how to share it ! Into the app you can mix any kind of hub you want. Here you can see controls. As you can see, you can move the excavator at the same time moving the boom for example. Each joystick has in own motor. You can reverse each motor rotation on the app with number one in red circle : -1 or 1.
  4. Thank you ! Here is the video : I hope you will enjoy it !
  5. Thank you ! I have made some technical pictures to see Poclain HC 300 inside :
  6. Thank so much for your support guys ! I'm working on the video, I hope to release it this week end.
  7. Thank you so much guys ! That's scheduled ! I already tried on my LEAP engine (you can see results here : https://www.flickr.com/photos/147164115@N07/albums/72157718957968196) and I wanted to do the same on the Poclain ! I've made a lot of iterations on this transmission. For example, I added a bridge on 20t bevels gears in order to reduce stresses on gears. This solution split stress path and decrease tooth wear. The DDD is not implement on the real excavator. I added this kind of transmission to create a technical challenge ! Much more difficult than 2 parallels motors but less efficient !
  8. Wow incredible ! Tank you for this technical facts ! Of course yes, very soon. I'm working on a feature to reverse motors rotation by the software just like old PFS remotes. Ahaha yes indeed. You take a red turret and a black drive train you get a Poclain xD Thank you so much guys for your comments !
  9. Hi everyone, Today I want to introduce to you my latest MOC : a Poclain excavator, the HC 300. Poclain is a French company (bought in 2000s by CASE) leader in 60-70s in hydraulics excavators and engines. The HC 300 was the bigger excavator in the world in 1968 ! Specifications : I wanted to control the model with a smartphone so I used Control+/Power up applications. The excavator has also manual features. I used electrical linear actuators instead of pneumatics to enhance playability. The excavator must be able to rise one track from the ground by using the bucket and his motorized arm. Inventory is mainly based on #42082. The main design is based on 8043 set. The drive train is powered by 2 L motors and a dual differential drive : more informations on @Sariel video : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f5_OQooBxdY. This kind of transmission allows control by only one joystick one smartphone screen instead of two sliders. Configuration : 6 motors : 5 L motors (https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=bb0959c01#T=C) and 1 XL motor (https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=bb0960c01#T=C&C=85) 2 electrical hubs 2 000 parts Features : - Toggling cabin with mechanical locking system - 360° turret rotation : One battery box is placed in drive train and the other one is placed on turret. No cables through the turntable, only a shaft to transmits rotation from drive train to the V12. - Technical compartments : a lot of openable elements very useful to store tools and tracks components. The grid at the back can be opened to reveal V12 engine. - The entire bodywork is removable. It is only set on the turret by gravity. The entire of the excavator is modular in order to make disassembly easier. - V12 engine works when the excavator move. I add a maximum of details to make it more realistic. - The dual differential drive : Each motor drives one kind of motion, straight-line motion or rotation. Get more information here : http://groups.csail.mit.edu/drl/courses ... ldiff.html. You can also combine motions to get curved directions. Tension on tracks is maintained by springs.

Building instructions too ! I hope you liked this creation, I tried to mix up realistic details and common excavator's features. Only displacement is slow because of a total weight of 2kg.

  10. 5: 10 20: 6 6: 4 25: 3 7: 2 27: 1 Congrats everyone !
  11. Hello, HD building instructions are now available on Rebrickable : https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-57003/ Or on my Google Drive : https://drive.google.com/file/d/1qCLnkHyojcZK08G7hv7q0Wvgc6o_TFVg/view?usp=sharing I fixed some minors mistakes/inconstancies in the file. I also improved gearbox in order to make it more realistic. Ratios are same. I updated part list on Rebrickable (Minors modifications). See you !
  12. Thanks for choosing my gearbox on your moc ! If you have enough place, Gray Gear lever and shifting mechanism is a great solution.
  13. Good question. Working on various scales is very interesting for few reasons : Time spending on project is very different so you can work on different models and different brands in one year for example. In result, you get more Mocs on your own shelf ! I think it's give you the opportunity to work on cars (in my case the orange Lamborghini) which I had never made on 1:8 or 1:9 scale : poor features to show except for the body design but the challenge is the same on small scale. I think it's a good thing to go out from from your confort zone sometimes : that is the real challenge. Thank you !
