  1. I am waiting for photos with your models to see what it looks like :) My farm machinery is 1:17 scale and fits perfectly with the bulldozer.
  2. The model is in 1:18 scale. Fits trucks with 62.8 wheels, such as Mercedes Arocs or Bricksonwheels trucks. I don't know what it will look like with the Mack Anthem set. However, the 1:22 models will be too small for it.
  3. The idea for the B model in the form of the Liebherr PR776 appeared in December 2019. Unfortunately, I had no experience building alternative models, so first I assembled a simpler model - skid skidder based on Bobcat T870. Having already some experience and, what is important, knowing what I can afford during the build, especially the list of parts, I made it. I tried to make all the functions and as much as possible to make the original look like this The tactic I chose when designing was to check whether the new engines and hubs would fit in the 1:18 scale model (scale to the wheels). In fact, when I put the first hub between the tracks and the drive motors, I ran out of space in the chassis. Another problem was the new, long actuators. While they are great for lifting the blade, they are too long for the ripper. In the original, these actuators are very short. To keep the dimensions of the ripper I had to build them much more into the center of the model. This added another space problems and the need to place one of the engines at the bottom of the frame. I really wanted the model to resemble the original as much as possible, so I started building with modeling the hood. Then I took care of the blade, which consumed almost all DBG system bricks. However, the basic curvature was pretty nice. Its appearance gives a lot of visual effect. The problem was the shape of the cabin. I don't know who designed the original, but there is a suspicion that he was drunk. Fortunately, it was possible to create a quite realistic cabin and interior. It is masochism to use the Control + system on models of this scale. How to build in two large hubs so that you can replace the batteries from the bottom and turn them on from the top? The first hub is located under the hood between the tracks. From the bottom we have access to the battery and we activate it with a clever switch in - the left platform. The second hub is located directly under the cabin. This can be easily folded back to gives access to the control hub and turn it on using a switch in the cabin The model does not have a realistic suspension. I resigned from it because the model weighs over 3 kilograms. I really wanted it to be stable and the tracks did not make such terrible sounds as the model A while driving. There are, however, four tilt carts that make it easier to climb over obstacles. Some technical data: Length: 46 cm, Width: 25 cm, Height: 23 cm, Weight: 3.04 kg Drive and steering – 2x XLarge C+ motor Ripper – lift (Large C+ motor) tilt (Large C+ motor) Blade – lift (XL C+ motor), tilt (Large C+ motor) I wanted the application configuration to be as simple as possible, so I also created a custom profile in the buwizz application which greatly simplifies the configuration of the model control. I also made a layout to make the control panel pleasing to the eye. Instructions can be bought at Sellfy and Rebrickable: Custom stickers: Download custom BuWizz profile:

    There's no building instructions for this one

    Osprey set will return with changed design and drive (issue) mods in 2021 CHANGE MY MIND
  6. Much better Igor !! My next two suggestions: - Place the pins and 1x4 tiles in the blue place. - In the red place, insert the yellow wedge. It will be nicely rounded and a plate step will imitate the slope of the original hood Another last suggestion. Please enter the stud length I mentioned for the rear fenders here. This will not affect the fender's curvature optically.
  7. Is it the final effect? I think the mask needs more slope to move, especially the grill and exterior light. Now it seems little bit flat. It is a pity that there is such a small selection of yellow wedge bricks The rear fenders should be a stud longer;)

    They received information probably from Lego. The premiere being delayed and the sets will receive later. They probably make new boxes :D

    I got an e-mail from a Polish supplier that the premiere of the 42113 set was postponed to August 17. Don't cry Boys ;)

    Yes, It will be in ~1:16 scale

    42114 - 6x6 Volvo Articulated Hauler

    Don't worry I'm working on it :)
  12. This is a very good shape from the side profile, but the front with the lights falls too low compared to the original. Will you use side covers?

    @imurvai Is it possible to program brickcontroller to add model photos to profiles?

    In the pictures it looks like two halves of the drum. There are holes for pins on the drum. There is no trace between cone and cylinder
  15. You can see how much work it cost to redesign the chassis. It's great that you managed to fit all these functions! I'm most curious about how you will design the hood. I hope you won't let me down @I_Igor! : D
