  1. I tried that but it wasn‘t satisfying. The slightly too bug turn radius isn‘t a problem as the use pin with hole is turning too. Ah alright - that one. Don’t think that this motor is very good usable as you need some gearing and a clutch. A servo is much better for the purpose of controlling the valve.
  2. Very good idea. Both version are fine - so you could choose how you connect the swith to rest of the MOC. As I doesn’t know, which solution you mean, domyou have link? If you mean a regular micro motor from TLG, I fully agree with @Beck. It’s too rare and it‘s weak.
  3. My solution is about the same size:
  4. Lego Certified Professional Sets

    Hi there, I just posted a review of the LCP set "Hampton by Hilton Modular Construction" designed by Dirk Denoyelle.
  5. Last May, I got my hands on a very special set: "Hampton by Hilton Modular Construction" set deigned by Lego Certified Professional (LCP) Dirk Denoyelle. Of course I snapped it at the chance. After I got it I struggled with myself for a while whether to keep it and hope to increase in value or build it up. I have decided on the latter and would like to let you participate. The box does not look very spectacular. The print is clean and crisp. But the box itself is much too flabby. It was hard to handle it without damage. But: the content counts. In the box neatly packed in ZIP lock bags are 1553 parts (minus one missing part plus various extra parts). The bigger plates and the construction manual are included loosely. The construction manual is a real highlight: really thick pages and perfect print quality. That makes up for the box. Especially nice in the manual is that the play starts with the construction. In the construction steps, the workers are always somewhere else, join in and also the crane helps. I have never seen it like this before. The building of the set starts rather boring, I say. First you build 24 identical containers. But after that it's fun until shortly before the end. Bricking the outer tiles is then somewhat monotonous again. Personally, I like the finished model much better than expected. I especially like the ground floor, which is completely furnished. The associated construction truck seems a bit out of time, or better, looks like from the 80s. There would have been more possible. The hotel itself is just a monolith and can not compete with the LCP set Hilton Paris Opera (also by Dirk Denoyelle). Both, however, would have to fit well in terms of scale to each other. The little London bus from Lego at least fits the hotel perfectly :) All in all, the Hampton is still a very nice, not everyday model. It is a pity that, contrary to the picture on the packaging, two tiles are not printed with the Hampton logo. I recorded the bulding of the hotel and the review in a video and tried stop motion instead of a speed build. Please tell me how you like it.
  6. Thx @Imanol BB. @Allexander that's right. Some functions are inside, but not as many as in the red one. I tried to make it a little more simple so it can be rebuild by others.
  7. @I_Igor that’s right :) Thx Allexander! I think, I open a new topic as it is a more than 80% new MOC. 6x6 is wrong. Will hurry up to show it here. Yes, it is. Where have you seen it? I brought it (still not fully finished) to Bricking Bavaria Munich.
  8. Hi @I_Igor, thx for the masses of information :) The last tire (Michelin) in some way is looking very familiar to me ;)
  9. Just stunning! Like a MadMax Mercedes :) They work very well. Much better than without. For my red Zetros: The planetary gears are only the end of the whole gear reduction. The performance without the structure like cabin and crane is enormous. Have look at my third TrackTest at youtube and the Behind the MOC video for the Zetros. In my new MOC I use four XL motors - one for each wheel. They're powering the wheels through 1:1 knob gears and then 4:1 planetary gears again. The result is convincing: Good speed and much power. Important: For both models I used brand new turntables from TLG as most of my used ones having too much friction.
  10. Thx @Allexander, I'll phrase it this way: Most people looked at the the new MOC. My red Zetros always only got the second look :/ I'll promise: I'll hurry up to improve the model, film and photograph it. I'll look around in the next days. Maybe you'll ask @Pat-Ard - he's a real Unimog'er and knows much about it.
  11. @I_Igor you're welcome :) You'll find the user guide for the 4023/5023 in interactive html format here -> http://moba.i.daimler.com/baix/trucks/unimog_uhe/de_DE/index.html#../../../trucks/unimog_uhe/de_DE/manual/index.html Here's tech sheet: https://www.mercedes-benz.co.uk/content/media_library/unitedkingdom/mpc_unitedkingdom/Unimog/pdfs/U4000_-_U5000/u_4023_euro_6_spec.object-Single-MEDIA.tmp/U4023-U5023TechnicalInformation.pdf @Imanol BB thx a lot! And thx for your additional informations
  12. Hi @I_Igor, in the Zetros leaflet I found as standard dimensions for the tires: 14.00 R20 (10.00 V 20). In the user guide you'll find some more options. Would post screenshots, but they're to big :/ You'll find the infos on pages 237 and 238 -> http://moba.i.daimler.com/baix/trucks/zetros/downloads/de_DE/02_15/BA_Zetros_949_02-15_de_DE.pdf
  13. Hi Allexander, thx a lot for your nice words. I won't make instructions for this Zetros as it is really big, really complex and really really expensive. But I just built a new MOC which will look in many aspects familiar (with cool new features) in a cool new color. I presented it just these days at Bricking Bavaria Exhibition in Munich. I'll show it here with photos and video in the next weeks. For this new MOC I plan to make instructions somewhen in the coming weeks (or months).
  14. Thank you guys for suggesting me for the Technic Hall of Fame and thanks to those who elected me. That's an honor to me!
  15. Thx Matt! To fit all in the Zetros was really hard. Fortunately all worked well in the end
