    Yep, it is even possible to fit V6 engine in this scale to correct position: IMGP5246 by Ivan Moc, on Flickr and make the cabin tilt: Working fake engine by Ivan Moc, on Flickr The size of engine is still waaay to big, but I like the shape much more. I wish there would be some new mold for fake engines, I don't like the solution with 3L axles at all.

    I find it quite weird that the load bearing axle the accurator sits on is rotating with the 20t gear, why not use the free spinning 20t gear?

    I don't like the solution of the steering at all. It feels so cheap to use chunky motor directly coupled to steering, just what technic really needs, larger motor.. . Two mLA powered by M or L motor, slightly geared up, would steer fine and would be much more realistic. But in the end I wouldn't buy it either way so I just might shut up. The amount of yellow recolor is very nice tho, that is always good news

    The top part is cone, but I cannot distinguish the middle part:

    There is a purpose in that design that is very usefull - you can have 8T, 24T or 40T gear right beside without collision, I wouldn't like to give up on that. I have several hundreads of mentioned connectors, I guess nowadays most of them cracked somehow yet all of them still fully functional and I use the regullarly. The axle hole is only slightly loose so the friction is not as firm, but the crack is not so severe to throw the part out.

    After a very long 17 years a white 32039 appears again in Ninjago dragon: HALELUJAH
  7. If it is samll model and space is an issue then I would go with axle only, if it is bigger then you can use big turntable

    Effe's MOC Corner

    I would say it is too much, 3-4 rpm is usually on cranes that do contitious cycle work (like dragline crane), but I wouldn't go below 1-2 rpm as it is too slow to play with

    Seems I was really close I'm so glad it is regular yellow and brings back usefull panels. I'm actually excited from set since Xerion..

    Given the huge size of PU elements I don't think so, take a look at @M_longer wheeled loader WIP topic, how he struggle to put ONE hub and 4 motors into body that offer more space than backhoe. And PU motors are way to large to integrate into rear arm. Not mentioning price of such solution...
