    [C-Model] 42039 Alt. Buggy 2.0

    Thanks. My advice is that I recommend you to build trailing arms as rigidly as possible, and use legal connections. For example, you can see that on my model, I angled them outward, but I also reinforced them with the thin 5L lift arms. I also second what Didumos said.
  2. Hello all, Today I present my newest MOC: 42039 C-Model Buggy 2.0. You may remember my previous 42039 C-Model. I decided that I didn't like it very much, mainly due to the fact that it was plagued with illegal and unstable building techniques. So now, I have created a new one! Honestly, I really like how this one came together. The model practically built itself; I had it nearly finished in two days. Features:HoG steeringIndependent front suspension with positive casterRear trailing arm suspensionFake v8 engineRigid AND legal construction More pics: Rendering with original tires: Includes step-by-step PDF instructions and a Stud.io file for your building pleasure. https://bricksafe.com/files/Offroadcreations/42039-alt.-buggy-2.0/42039 buggy 2.0.pdf https://bricksafe.com/files/Offroadcreations/42039-alt.-buggy-2.0/42039 Buggy 2.0.io Throw it a "like" on Rebrickable! https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-47030/offroadcreations/42039-alt-buggy-20-free-instructions/ Enjoy! All comments are appreciated.
  3. 56. Twin-Engine Drag Roadster What would happen if you combined the 42022 Hot Rod and 42050 Drag Racer, and added a bit of retro Technic set styling? This! Features: Working twin V-8 engines HoG steering Wheelie function

    [TC18] Twin-Engine Drag Roadster

    Ok, I changed my mind about the model being complete. I decided that it wasn't sturdy enough, so I completely overhauled the chassis, added more details, and took new pics. One main thing I did was add a mechanism for the "wheelie mode" (it's the yellow connector.) I also added front lights, which I think help really polish the model. Rear lights were added as well. Chassis: Edit: just fixed the exhausts so they're within the 15l limit.

    [TC18] Twin-Engine Drag Roadster

    Thank you for the kind words! Here are the final pictures: I tried adding flames to the exhaust, but they just looked too cartoonish. I added a seat, fake steering wheel and a roll bar-type thing as well. Chassis pic:
  6. Hello, Here is my new MOC for the TC18 competition. It is quite simple, as the main goal was to create a model reminiscent of the pre-panel Technic era. It features HoG steering, and 2 working twin V8 engines. There is also a surprise main feature: There would be no point in calling it a dragster if it couldn't pop wheelies! It is nearly done, and only requires a few more cosmetic changes and detailing. Although I don't expect it to win, it was a fun model to build, and I'd love to hear everyone's opinions on it!

    Job: doors. Status: finished (I believe)

    [LB-X18] Collaboration/Group Project

    Ok, I like @Didumos69's door solution, so try that and see if that can fit your steering wheel better.

    [LB-X18] Collaboration/Group Project

    Ok, so I reworked the door a bit and added a mirror. https://bricksafe.com/files/Offroadcreations/collab-supercar/LBX18- Missing parts_new doors.lxf Please keep in mind that there are bricks missing from this LDD file. My LDD is not updated so not all the parts of the model imported when I downloaded the original file. So use @Jeroen Ottens's LDD file if you want to make changes.

    [WIP] Red Beryl GT - BrickFair VA 2018

    Move it a few studs forward to the front axle. If you keep it how it is the hood will be really long, but maybe you want that? It's up to you.

    [WIP] Red Beryl GT - BrickFair VA 2018

    Looking good so far. I just checked out your other supercar on YT, and its impressive, so I'm hoping this one turns out nice too. One suggestion though: make the roof a bit taller for this one.

    42083 - Bugatti Chiron

    I think that's why the model is released the same day it's revealed. They expect the community to see leaks beforehand so we already know about the model. They don't even have to show the model in advance themselves since the community does the work (marketing) for them, if you get my drift.

    42083 - Bugatti Chiron

    Basically every gearbox is obsolete, but it doesn't really bother me since at least now we know this set's functions will match the looks. Now I'm really excited!

    Creating a Technic scaled model

    I don't think there is one right way to do it, but I start by picking one thing that can't be changed, usually tires. Next I pull up a blueprint of what I'm building on my computer and resize it to the size of the actual model. Then I build and hold the model up to the screen to check along the way. However I don't build perfect scale models, so when I think it's close enough I go off on my own to finish the build without the blueprints.

    42083 - Bugatti Chiron

    I'm even more impressed after seeing the back, this model is definitely better looking than the Porsche. I think that system/Technic blend really helps make this a beautiful model.
