  1. Thank you very much. Such a nice compliment by a Grand Duke
  2. Good luck with all four projects! My next MOCs are in progress.
  3. It was finished since spring … The video and the photos took me some time …
  4. Thx you both! You're right. The model is not the most stable I built. It's more the look and the functions. But despite that it's stiff enough to play a little with it :)
  5. Hey guys, I want to introduce my latest MOC: The hydraulic slewing crane “T 157/1” – a crane (or rather an excavator or “loader”) that was developed and built in the former GDR. Actually, the machine is quite ugly, but somehow it fascinated me and I had to build it in LEGO® Technic. That's the real excavator (and it's really ugly …): The excavator is completely mechanical or pneumatic and of course fully functional. Therefore it drives, steers and excavates. The challenges during construction were on the one hand the really limited space (of course I wanted to accommodate all functions) and on the other hand the unusual construction of the front axle. The latter also cost me a few evenings and many tests. Also for the tires at the front I had to come up with something. LEGO® doesn't have suitable wheels in its range. The solution: I mounted the balloon tyres 68.8×40 on the Technic 43.2×26 rim, which was actually too small. And lo and behold, it worked and looks great. Also the construction was very fiddly due to the limited space. So the pneumatic pump had to find place underneath the excavator as well as the turning wheel for the rotating construction of the excavator. But in the end it fitted. Thanks to the new pneumatic valves, I was able to build real joysticks. Therefore: Each of the sticks in the "cockpit" really controls the functions of the model. And even if it was tight, there was enough room for a few details like V-belt, tank and exhaust. Finally my excavator in action:

    [MOC] Tatra T813 8x8 PROFA

    That's formidable! My Zetros prototype managed 45 degrees but unfortunately I missed to put it on the scale. The final truck was limited to 25 degrees at a weight of 4,55 kg.

    [MOC] Tatra T813 8x8 PROFA

    Wow, really good looking MOC with impressive power. Can you tell which inclination it masters?
  8. That's great and will add some more "coziness" to your MOC ;) V8 table is so fitting! The rack is nice too
  9. That's a pretty cool MOC! But what's really missing is a coffee corner. Can't imagine a car repair shop without proper coffee maker and cups ;)
  10. Hi @I_Igor, what a very well build and shaped MOC. Glad that your wife and @Jim convinced you Would love to see the FastTrac in action – do you plan to make a little video? For now good luck with the Syn-Trac. Really looking forward the very unusual machine. I'm feeling flattered Thx – but it was only so little input compared with your ideas and speed while building,
