  4. If only Jim... At what will be retail in NZ an $299NZD set even if local retailers do the standard 20% discount, its still a very expensive set for what it is.. And honestly it looks shite.... and I'm certainly one that rarely says or comments like that, so yes its bad folks...

    [MOC] Kenworth W900

    I think everyone else has said what I would like to say, lots of very cool technical ideas that I am going to try out and for the record, W900's are notorious for bending frames in real life. I'm very much intrigued by your container carrier, but there seems to be little on the net photo wise..

    Wait till you come off a superbike on the back straight of Philip Island ( that hurt ) these days I do like having a cage around me ( 8 point ) which probably is over kill for club sport level but yes, I am a huge fan of full face helmets on the road, the track and motocross style for mountain biking. get better then get back on the horse..

    [MOCs] Pickup & Hatchback

    I have a .lxf of how it is done. At some point I hope to finish the dacoma but how Madoca did the steering is a bit of a guess if you hunt around youtube you will see a truck trial from RM8 that has a White Toyota Surf / 4Runner which the front end was Id say inspired by this moc.. https://bricksafe.com/files/brickless_kiwi/eurobricks/15wideis.lxf
  12. When you are building up a multi combination road train in the yard using an (A-DOLLY) I use the Ring Feeder on the back of the semi not the turntable. On the odd occasions I have hauled a dolly trailer behind the semi ( I then run a weight box on the fifth wheel ) It's certainly not a common practice

    Ok, Here goes, My old eight row trailer that we built used a slew ring from a Hitachi as the load pivot point but also we used the outer ring gears to drive the turntable computer as we called it, ( all hydro-mechanical ) no electronics to set the rate of turn for the length being transported. Yellow arm is the ram from the turntable computer Blue is the linkage to the steering rods ( literally how your Moc works ) and Green is the override Ram. Gray pin is the pivot point . Left Normal down the road straight, Middle over ride pushes the steering link out to initiate a faster turn. ( or you can pull it in to delay the turntable ram allowing you to go deeper into the corner Right the steering turntable has turned with the load and the over ride ram has been moved back to normal to allow the turntable to control steering. Hope this helps..

    Efferman I'm quite glad you can poke fun at yourself. Actually you were not to bad though, we tend to drive the prime movers ( tractor unit ) deep into the corner then turn. Most roads you still have the run off either side so you can still gain a truck width. A lot of the times for tight manoeuvring we put a pusher truck on the rear and all he does is steer the rear trailer. I do have trailer steer controls in the cab that I can over ride the guide turntable, takes time and practice. I do like how your system is so modular. and easier to change..

    Given that your driving this around on cobblestones and performing some very sharp turns, its very impressive! Its certainly going to be a hit at show's....you now need a lego load instead of that cardboard tube!
