  1. [MOC] Dodge Monaco

    Thanks for great comments It is indeed looking a bit colorful. That's because I don't own much parts in one color. The blue and black does look better together on the model than on the pictures. The red panels are the only in that shape I have and the combination looked good on the ocean explorer. I did think about ordering some parts, but then I realised it is just my first model. There has to be something to improve next time
  2. Hey all, I finally found some time to show you my finished model of a ’74 dodge Monaco. The idea came from the bluesmobile from the movie the blues brothers, which is a ’74 dodge Monaco police car. As I don’t have much panels in black and white, most of the body got another color. Most of it got earth blue from set 42064. I build my model using a blueprint of a dodge Monaco police car. I used sariel’s scaling tool to get some important measurements. The scale of this car is about 1 : 11.1. Functions: drive using two L motors steering using a servo two speed gearbox, controlled using an M motor motors and lights controlled using SBrick fake V8 motor, directly driven by the two L motors front independent suspension rear suspension with fake leaf springs opening doors, hood and trunk working steering wheel some interior BB put on top of rear axle, access from the trunk Pictures: Rear suspension Battery Box A few of the functions will be shown in a video that will come soon. This is the first MOC I made to look like a real thing. All comments are welcome, so I can learn from it for the next time Bricksafe folder with all the (WIP) pictures: https://bricksafe.com/pages/nick97/dodge-monaco WIP topic: For those able to, the model can be seen this weekend (november 25th and 26th 2017) at Mega Bricks Steenwijk (the Netherlands).
  3. Hey all, FInally I have some time to show some progress. It was build a few weeks ago, but didn't have time to show it earlier. This is the final vehicle. All I have to do is make it look a bit better/filling some gaps. Functions: Manure tank for spreading liquids. Depends on the environment we're racing in. Blades for cutting grass, making better roads or bringing damage to other contestents. Blade for flattening out the roads and pushing others out of my way. A mill for shredding trees and bigger hills to clear the road. The manure tank has a simple machanism to spread fake liquids. In this picture it represents oil. If I fill it with blue pins, it could be water. Thanks for reading Comments are welcome!
  4. I made it to make it possible to steer the vehicle properly when not using the motors. It makes it a bit more playable for kids, otherwise it may be a bit useless.
  5. Hey all, Here is some progress: Under the V8 wasn't enough room to fit a steering system. Now the steering system is between the two strait four engines. I'm currently working on a third function, which I will show in my next update. Thanks! I hope not. The two big strait four engines should offer enough power for the functions and for the speed.
  6. Hey all, Here I present my vehicle for TC12. All functions are manual, so no PF. As the name would suggest, it will have some farming related functions. * First function is the manure tank. Normally you use it for injecting manure on your fields. In this case I will use it for spraying liquids on the road to slow down other contestants. * Second function are the blades, which are normally used for mowing grass on your fields. Now it will be used for damaging other contestants. * Need to think about other functions… This is what I have for now, more progress soon.
  7. [WIP] Dodge Monaco

    Hey all, The last details have been build and now the car is almost complete. As you can see in the pictures there are some things I want to change, mostly about colors. One of those is the roof. A few more pictures of it are here: http://bricksafe.com/pages/nick97/dodge-monaco Comments are welcome, especially for improving it.
  8. Hi all, As this is a mod topic, I have one for you. I the pictures you can see the HOG I've made using the second gear on the gearrack. Replacing the batteries is still possible, you only need to remove the gear. It took me about 30 minutes to build. The hardest part was removing the 3L axle with stop and placing a 4L with stop. And I had the tan gear on the wrong side, so it turns the wrong way. You are free to use it and/or improve it.
  9. This looks great! Well done I like the compact gearbox

    Thanks everybody, glad you like it I try to make it look as good as possible. And the anniversery brick is the only part that looks like a license plate
  11. [WIP] Dodge Monaco

    Hey all, here is some progress Starting with a video: A few pictures: What has been done: All lights are installed and work via a second SBrick. Front and rear are almost complete, only need to fill some gaps in the bodywork. Some changes: Gearbox got new gears. It is now 3:1 and 1.66:1 (was 1.66:1 and 1:1) Drive is now done by two L motors. Front wheels have both two yellow hard springs. Rear axle got also two yellow hard springs on both sides. To do: Filling the gaps in the bodywork. Building the roof of the car. Building the interior of the car. A video of the suspension is in my BrickSafe folder: http://bricksafe.com/pages/nick97/dodge-monaco Thanks for reading, comments are welcome.
  12. Test Poll

    Just voted and saved it as it should
  13. Test Poll

    Didn't work for me. After voting it said 'thank you', but it didn't save it. I used Microsoft Edge on Windows 10
  14. [WIP] Dodge Monaco

    I used sariel's scaling tool, where I used the wheels to scale it. There I used 8 studs for the wheels, but in fact they are a bit smaller. And this is actually my first project, so I wanted full numbers to make it a bit easier Dark blue is the only color in my collection with 3x11 panels to make the whole bodywork. And I think you can guess which set they come from
  15. [WIP] Dodge Monaco

    The bluesmobile is the reason I build one a few years ago, also only bodywork. And now with more experience and parts I try it again. I'm also using a blueprint of the police car for building. But I don't have many panels in black, so I use dark blue.
