  1. MinusZwei: Thanx! Yes, you are correct. My inner part of the disk cannot be correctly modeled in the CAD program The following pictures show the parts I used. Your version would work as well, but instead of two *plate round 4x4* I used only one *plate round 4x4 with 2x2 hole*. I wanted the whole circular part to be inside the disk as much as possible. The little *2x2 inverted dish* is there as a centering element. And there must be only 17 *chain links*. The chain ring is mounted on a 4x4 plate round so, that half the width of the ring protrudes into the free space. The diameter of the encircled chain has a slight tension.

MangaNOID, I_Igor, Aleh, jam8280, Shiva, Newest_Tech320, romulan, SATSOK, Paperinik77pk, DRAKE207, WvG_853, deraven, Tierce, KLF, Edwin Korstanje: Thank you very much, guys! yes, you get it right: only the steering is motorized. The rest is manual. A hand is also needed to move the vehicle. During the construction, I photographed the current situation a few times. Here are the photos: Suspension, front-rear steering: PF L-Motor, which is used for steering, using 4 Linear actuators: Here you can see the displacement of the wheels (half-stud) of one side relative to the other: Hydraulic oil tank: Pump: Bare chassis with cab: Here's how I assembled the front offset on the front of the cab: And here are just different shots of the different state of the model during construction:
  3. suffocation, keymaker, howitzer, Gray Gear, ScT: Thank you guys! Yes, there is a lot of reinforcement. Even from inside the cab, above the engine, to the front of the hydraulic oil tank is built-in reinforcement with long technic bricks. I took several photos during the construction. I can publish them here, I just need some time to look at them and pick up some interesting ones. Those foot-step are unstable, like you write. they will fall away first. But I had no idea, how to make them better to hold well and look elegant at the same time. When I come up with a better solution, or anyone else, it won't be a problem to replace it.
  4. Kronos987, Sariel, JintaiZ, Jurss, zoo, zux: Thank you guys! Plastic lego and heavy weight are not good friends. It's just a big heavy beast. I haven't made a video yet. I'll probably just make a simple few seconds of video of how it turns and goes over a bump. That pile of gears has a lot of resistance. I knew from the beginning that it would be so. But i don't mind, i don't play with it anyway after completion, the construction process itself is my main source of entertainment.
  5. Hi guys, I want to introduce you my latest model. It is a technological equipment intended for shale gas extraction: PERCHERON This unique solution, called ONE-ENGINE-TRUCK, is the result of the American-Czech cooperation of the following companies: * M.G.BRYAN Equipment (USA) - Percheron superstructure * TATRA TRUCKS (CZ) - chassis * GARDNER DENVER (USA) - pump * TALOSA (CZ) - auxiliary gearbox The basis of the PERCHERON system is a TATRA T815-7 10×10 truck and a GD-2500 Quintiplex Well pump from the American company Gardner Denver. The 2500-horsepower pump blows a mixture of water, sand and chemicals into the well. Behind the Tatra cabin is a 12-cylinder diesel engine, model 1163 from the German company MTU. It is used to drive the pump and the vehicle. Engine power is 5954 hp. However, this power only serves to drive the pump. Only about 700 horses are intended to drive the Tatra with some cylinders on the engine switched off. The Czech company TALOSA designed a special additional gearbox for the transmission of torque for the drive of the mining equipment and also for the drive of the vehicle. Shale gas extraction: Shale gas is found in shale formations hidden hundreds of meters or units of miles underground. Due to the low permeability of the shale, the gas bearing cannot be pulled out in one borehole, as is the case with conventional gas pocket bearings. Here, a mining technology called hydraulic fracturing /fracking/ is used. The drilling rig first drills a vertical well. A horizontal borehole is then drilled through the shale gas deposit. The shale gas layer is then broken with small charges. Subsequently, a special device starts pumping a mixture of water, sand and chemicals into the well. The water expands and branches the cracks in the slate and the sand prevents the cracks from closing. Finally, a device for extracting the released gas enters. Schematically represented well in comparison with conventional mining: Good video with animation of how the mining process works: Lego model features: - chassis 10x10: central axle, swivel axles, 9 differentials, wheel displacement on one side relative to the wheels on the other side - turning eight wheels: first, second, fourth and fifth axle / second and fourth at a smaller angle / 1x PF-L Engine + 4x LA - opening the door, opening the cover on the central control panel - piston movement of a 12-cylinder engine - PF-Led lighting: a total of 8 pairs (16 LEDs), with only the front and rear being permanently installed in the vehicle. LEDs in the light bar on the roof and on the lighting on the superstructure were mounted only temporarily to take pictures in the dark. Dimensions: - length: 100 cm - height: 31 cm - width: 24 cm - weight: ~ 8 KG My FLICKR album with photos is here. Daily shots: Suspension: Steering: Night shots:
  6. Thank you guys! I was out to play yesterday... so I made a video:- I replaced L-motors with XL ones. I needed better performance in such terrain.- I removed the LED lights from the model, they traveled to another project.- Technic-fig complained to me that water was flowing into the cabin, that he had wet shoes!
  7. Thanx! The most complicated thing was the stone wall. So that the stones were not the same and generically in line, in an ever repeating pattern, it needed to be changed in many ways. That was the only part of the building that I didn't enjoy.
  8. Hi guys, I created the first level of Prince of Persia 2 in CAD-Application - Studio. I won't build it in real life, it would be very expensive. Number of parts: over 21 000 Length: 5,7 m Prince of Persia 2: Intro + Gameplay My Lego MOC: Hero and guards:

    GLA will also be ready soon ! Scorpion Tank Quad Cannon
  10. If I do it as a static/non-RC model, these functions like opening (hood, door, trunk), fake engine, suspension ... I would probably do. But it's RC. So I saved weight where I could. I didn't want to have it like most of the RC MOCs: packed with xy features, that crawls like a snail.
  11. Yes, exactly! Those will there probably fit better. I don't have this right now. When I get them, I'll take a picture again.
  12. Nebulaire: It has adjustable suspension, but only imaginary. you just have to imagine it! I understand your comment. I know what a lowrider is. I just missed this chassis functionality advisedly, in favor of better gameplay. Take it so, that the chassis is set to the legal height - everyone can just imagine adjustability. and I was trying to replace the wheels for smaller ones, but they're probably too small ...
  13. Thank you all , guys! I wanted to have the car as simple as possible, without any unnecessary features that would just increase weight. (already heavy enough) I was thinking about it before starting construction. But I had the feeling, that the adjusting suspension (and leaving the current motor/diff connection) would then make it impossible for me to discreetly hide the battery-box and PF receiver in the back of the car.
