  1. Absolutely stunning model! You captured the look of the original car brilliantly. But I am even more impressed of how much functionality you packed into the model at this rather small scale. I really, really hope your project will be made into an official Lego set. Fingers crossed! You may ask a moderator to move your thread to the Technic forum. Your moc will get much more attention there which it clearly deserves.
  2. Despite using rather basic techniques the result is still brilliant. If this is just "backgroung decoration" I wonder how good your main model will look!

    [HELP] Motorizing a Scale Model

    Thanks for your reply! That sounds like a good idea. I am really struggeling with Technic since this is my first moc with a few technic functions. What I have already experienced is how much more you have to admire all those great mocs here. Giving it a go yourself changes your point of view heavily.

    [HELP] Motorizing a Scale Model

    Thanks to everyone who replied so far and sorry for bumping up a rather dead topic! The chassis of my car is nearly complete now. Independent front suspension, rear suspension (not independent), differential and rear wheel drive are working quite well. But I do have problems implementing the servo motor for steering. Actually I need an angle of just around 45 degree instead of 90 degree even when using the 8 tooth gear. Will I destroy the servo motor with parts blocking the gear rack at around 45 degree turning angle? If so is there a rather compact way to gear the angle down to just 45 degree? Or should I go for a steering mechanism avoiding gear racks (like 10265 Ford Mustang)? Since the model is just 16 wide (scale 1:13) there is not a lot of room left. Any kind of answer is appreciated.

    [MOC] Skoda 110R

    I really like your moc and the fact that you recreated a rather unknown car (at least unknwon to me). You did a great job capturing the shape of the original car and lots of lovely details! It would look even better if you used the 30699 tires of the 10258 London Bus.

    [HELP] Motorizing a Scale Model

    Both what be great. But I can't see how to get the turning point in the center of the wheel unless I use some kind of virtual pivot steering which I try do avoid. As I mentioned in my first post: Ackermann steering geometry without a working suspension is no problem. But is there a way to achieve both Ackermann steering and a working suspension? Thanks Jim for editing the title of the thread!
  7. Hi everbody, being a scale model guy I very rarely post here but I feel this is the best sub-forum to get answers to a few questions. Usually I build models approximately the same scales as Creator Expert cars. But now I feel it's time to (slightly) get out of my comfort zone and go a little bigger. I would like to build a car scaled 1:10 (62.4x20 tyres) and possibly motorize it. The weight of the model itself will be around 1.5kg. Some questions came to my mind: 1. I will need some sort of working suspension. One or two springs on each wheel? Soft or hard spring? 2. I found a simple way to implement Ackermann steering geometry without a working suspension. Is there a way to have a working suspension plus Ackermann steering geometry? 3. Which motors and how many would you suggest for motorizing the model? Is it even possible considering the extra weight for motors and batteries? @JIm: If this thread is better suited in the scale model forum please move it there. Any kind of answers and suggestions are highly appreciated. Thanks!
  8. Any chance Sebastian Vettel's helmet was a hint we will see a Ferrari F1 Creator Expert set? It would surely need far less parts than a classic street car. 8157 has even less than 1000 parts. I would really love to be right this time.

    [PRESS RELEASE] 10265 - Ford Mustang Creator Expert

    Owning all of the Creator expert cars and the Caterham as well I have to say the Ford is arguably one of the best if not the best model. I love both the look and the functionality. Building the car was great fun as some really clever techniques are used. In the designer video it is said that the new 2x8 curved slope helps to get rid of the small gap behind the door. I can't see that. Replacing the slope by a regular 2x8 brick does not change the door mechanism in any way. Any idea?
  10. This beast definitely has steering. The part list on top of the box shows parts no. 15460, 57515 and 2739a. So there is no doubt about steering anymore.

    LEGO Creator 2019 - Rumors, Discussion, and Speculation

    I really do think we will get a red classic car as Creator Expert set next summer. Part no. 37352 (brick, modified 1x2x1 no studs, curved top) was introduced last year. Two of these in lbg appeared in the 10621 Roller Coaster and suddenly we got 44 in the 10262 JB AM DB5. Now two of these parts in red appear in the Speed Champions Mini Cooper set 75894 (plus some more in set 70825). I would really love to be right because I could finally build my classic Porsche 911 in red.
  12. Has anyone checked the stability of official models using the new stability check in studio 2.0? I do believe there will be warnings or cautions in many official models, too. So we might get an idea of what degree of stability is required for entries to the AFOL Designer Program.

    Another great race car! I would really love to see something completely different from such a talented builder like you.

    [MOC] Ferrari F2002 retro look

    Thank you very much! Funnily the vintage look was not even intended when I built it. It was just my building style back then when there were only few curved slopes and snot parts available.

    American truck

    Not a bad entry here. It looks like a mix of classic Technic and Model team and definitely has some vintage style. But as you said yourself: it is not a scale model but rather a Model Team/Technic truck. So this thread might be better placed in the Technic forum.
