  1. Thanks @m2fel for the comment :) You are absolutely right, steering rectangle changes to a parallelogram but it still allows to achieve "fair enough" steering angle. Just out of curiosity i tried your suggestion and it surely creates bigger steering angle. I could add something between the rack and the brick so it doesn't go all the way like on the photo. Edit. I just realized i have been using Technic Beam 1 x 4 Thin with Stud Connector the wrong way around, and i completely missed that from @efferman idea. I will rebuild it once again and see how it goes . Here is how it looks with that half stud gap
  2. Little update on 6 wide steering. I ended up ordering two of Technic Plate 1 x 6 with Toothed Ends and redesigned it once again. It works even better now.
  3. Hello again and sorry for rather late reply. Thanks for all the comments! I wasn't fully satisfied with how the steering worked so i ordered two Technic Plate 1 x 6 with Toothed Ends and they finally arrived. There is a short clip of the truck in motion in the first post :) I am sure by now you have all the answers. I followed RacingBrick video on how to create simple steering in Powered Up app. Like you said, the M motor does not have position feedback so you do need to pay attention to the movement. Once the gear rack reaches the end of it's movement the motor just stops, no tooth skipping. The simple Powred Up profile looks like this Sorry to hear that! Because i spent all the time designing the model it only took few minutes to put it back together from memory :)
  4. Thanks for the comments! I never knew that! I got that tile in some Lego bulk from auction. Looked like license plate for me. Oh yes, that years of work has finally paid off! Think i should start working on another one
  5. Hello everyone! Adventurers theme is one of my all time favorite Lego themes. Various vehicles have always drawn my attention, especially the ones with tan and dark gray color schemes. Over last few years i created few versions of adventurers cars and today i present you yet another one, this time Powered Up one. Before i get into the details ill quickly explain design process. It's been a while since the last time i created any remote controlled car so i decided to try Powered Up components. After mocking up simple chassis i realised it will need to be truck because of the size of all the components. The rear of the truck needed to be bigger because of the battery box so first idea that came to my mind was 2017 Jungle Mobile Lab set. Before i swapped to tan i actually tried bright light orange but didn't like it. The finished model starts with 6 studs wide and then changes to 7 and finally to 8. Rear mudguards are 10 studs wide. The roof of the truck is loaded with various crates, gas canister and other small items. You also get kayak and motorcycle! The other side of the rear features two storage units. I am not to happy with the front axle. Because of the steering it required more space for movement - meaning less details. The front and back can be easily detached, i am planning to make various "versions" for that chassis, for example fire truck, ambulance or military vehicle. Here is the short video of the truck driving 20210215_153426 by Wiktor Boroń, on Flickr Hope you like it! few more photos on my Flickr Page Bonus : This is how the truck looks while it drives off the desk
  6. Thank you all for very fast replies! I actually went with @efferman design and it works perfectly! Only missing part was Technic Plate 1 x 6 with Toothed Ends but i built it with thin 1x6 and gear rack. Happy steering noises 20210214_162401 by Wiktor Boroń, on Flickr
  7. Hello everyone, i recently started working on my new moc, 6+ wide powered up vehicle. As long as rear axle is not a problem i am having troubles with steering. Whatever i have right now is not the worst but i am sure it could be better. As you can imagine gear skips on the rack. Does any of you have photos or instructions for 6 wide steering axle? Or is there a way to program Powered Up M motor to rotate only so much, or implement return to center steering? Thank you!

    MOD - Emerald Night based 4-8-4

    Looking good! few years ago i also changed it a bit but only to 4-6-4. Cooper's one looks so much better in original colors!

    [MOC] 6274 - Caribbean Clipper - Reimagined

    Bonus, i didn't like how with black and yellow it looked too similar to 21322 so i swapped all the yellows with whites. At this moment i don't like any of these colors, Thoughts?

    [MOC] 6274 - Caribbean Clipper - Reimagined

    Yes, i tried but then it all goes downhill. Once i added another section it looked ridiculous with that forward sails. Then i thought, what if i buy another sails? Then it would turn into another Barracuda but with different colors. It does look fat, but i am planning to display it next to 21322 and i don't want them to look too similar.
  11. Hello everyone! Today i present you my very first ship. It's is not an original design but heavily modified version of our beloved 6274 Caribbean Clipper I managed to buy big bulk of old Lego that included 6285 Black Seas Barracuda but all the sails and most of the masts were missing and since i already own 21322 Pirates of Barracuda Bay i decided to build the other ship from 1989 The first step was to acquire sails, i bought the replacement ones from ebay, because original ones were either in terrible condition or too pricey. My favorite part about original ship is its "forward" style of sails, i obviously kept it untouched but i added second rigging piece. I also wanted to add main deck, but then the ship was getting too bulky so i just left it opened, like original one. Just like in almost all of my creations i had to include some kind of crane. I am most proud of the stern of the ship, i didn't have enough blue pieces to keep the original scheme but i think yellow and black with some brown looks just as good. One more view from the top I hope you like it :) Hopefully my next ship won't be based on anything but for now i am happy with it. Few more pictures in my Flickr gallery

    [WIP][MOC] Watermill

    Thanks for the comments! I hopefully improved some of the details i didn't like and i finally added some figures! In meantime, the place changed from blacksmith to bakery and i think i like it more this way! Here is one side by side comparison photo photo. Change in interior was rather easy, some furniture here and there. If i ever wanted to change back to blacksmith it would only take few minutes. The "hidden place" is now "store in cool and dry" place :D I uploaded more photos on my flickr album

    [MOD] 21322 - Alternate Model

    Thanks everyone for the comments! It was fun while it lasted. I actually sold the set and will pick it up once things get better around the world. @Jasseji Sadly, no. In fact it was scrapped right after to try something bigger and then something smaller but more detailed. My whole focus is now on the last project. The build is fairly simple, there is more photos on my flickr page. And since amount of parts is limited you should be able to reverse engineer it.

    [WIP][MOC] Watermill

    Hello again! Three weeks ago i had very ambitious idea to build Big Merchants Bay. Just after taking photos i realized i will never put enough details to like it so it's scrapped! For some reasons i was really interested in that waterwheel made with big chariot wheels so i decided to make moc with this as main use. Today i present you, Watermill The idea is similar to my previous two attempts. Some structure by the water. The whole thing fits one modular base plate (32x32) The mill was built around some rock formation to make it more interesting and to keep the idea of "hidden place" within it. You can see little doors that lead you to "storage" area where you can keep your products / weapons but also some drinks for yourself! Little garden area to add some colors here and there. I wish i had more space / various vegetables! The other side is just blank and rather boring but there is a reason for it! The whole thing opens up! On the inside you can see basic blacksmith equipment. Anvil, crate with coal, furnace. The staircase takes you to living area, where same furnace is used for cooking! You can find some shelves and bench on other side. Another small anvil. There is one person bed on the first floor. To get full view of top floor remove the roof and have a look! So that's it for now. Like always i can't tell that the moc is finished. I feel it needs more details here and there. The good idea would be to replace 2x4 tiles with smaller ones, but that will require Bricklink :) Any more ideas? Hope you like it! More photos on my flickr page

    Post your Pirate Crew: Pirate Figbarfs

    Today i challenged myself to change all the figures from 21322 (plus Pirate from CMF series 20). My initial goal was to keep the figures very similar to the source but i feel like i drifted away a little. I used parts from all the random figures i had. 1. Captain - I really wanted to keep the leg and "shoulders". Used Wong body parts and some POTC parts. A parrot is a 1st mate... or is it? 2. All i wanted to keep was the hat and the green scheme. Legolas parts comes handy with wonder woman head. 3. This is where i had no idea what to do. I made her full assassin. At least pants color matches 4 & 5. Twins! Bright colors are gone but each of them still represents their own color. They are not funny anymore (were they ever?) They both hide their faces with scarfs. Something happened to the face of the later one. 6. Little boy was always aspiring to be like one of the twins. He is now scared and regrets his choices. He can't stop looking at the face of the twin! 7. Navigator became way more menacing. 8. I didn't have a single "naked body" in flesh color so i took Hercules from Disney CMF series! He is obsessed with swords! 9. Pirate girl was never part of the crew but she is making her way into it! Had to use neck scarf to cover yellow part of the body around the neck Hope you like it. I believe it took me like 1 hour to complete.
