  1. Thanks! I agree about the shape at the top of the doors, but I needed the rigid pillars to support the door when it is open. Adding a flexaxle there in addition to the pillars would have made it seem too bulky I think. Thank you! The roof is pretty flat, but it is also that way in the real car. The panels might have made it look a little better, but would have made the doors difficult to implement and as such a key feature I wanted to get those right. The A pillars are pretty realistic compared to blueprints.
  2. Hello everyone, This is my new MOC, a 1:10 scale model of a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG. It has the following manual functions: HOG steering with working steering wheel Fake V8 engine Independent suspension on all wheels Opening hood Opening gullwing doors, operated by gears behind cabin Retractable rear wing, operated by gear on roof Driving selector in cabin, shifts between drive, neutral, and park Comments and questions are appreciated, thanks!

    Cool idea, for a first sketch as you call it the shape is captured very well. I am very interested to see how the gearbox works out.

    Hahaha yes it is backwards, you are very sharp to notice! I just have to move a gear from one side to the other under the dashboard. I did not do it before because in order for everything to fit in the very tight space I must rework quite a bit of the structure on that side of the car. Will be done today probably but I did not really want to wait to get the video done. No worries its fine. Its a practical gearbox that somebody might like to use.

    Thank you!! Thank you guys! Yes Aventador2004, I had not seen your design before, but it is similar although obviously no transmission in mine:) The drive shaft goes through the driving ring, and the grey 16 tooth gear is locked in place. The driving ring is why there is so much play when the brake is engaged in the video.

    It definitely does, but in the end it is extremely rewarding. Very hard to do it well like sheepo or crowkillers.
  7. Here is my new model, a manual version of a Porsche 918 Spyder. Ended up taking a little more than a month to build. Some of the bodywork pieces are not the right color, but did not want to have to make a bricklink order. Functions: -1:10 scale -4 wheel HOG steering with working steering wheel -Full independent suspension -Opening doors and hood -Fake V8 engine -Parking brake operated by lever in cabin -Rear spoiler operated by gear on roof -Front axle nose lift operated by other gear on roof Sorry in advance for the red color and lack of a transmission, but I think it turned out better that way. Please comment and let me know what you think/any suggestions! Thanks everyone!
  8. Very cool functionality, especially with the piece limitations. The raising/lowering mechanism is really well done.

    Impressive! I am actually working on one of these right now as well, though slightly smaller. Cool to see someone else's ideas on it!
  10. Hello everybody, This is my first post here, although I have been a frequent visitor for a while. This is the MOC that I have recently been working on - a 2014 Ford F-150. Features: - 4x4 drive through 2 XL motors -Steering through M motor (will be connected to steering wheel when finished) -Opening doors, tailgate, bed toolbox, and hood -Front winch -Full suspension -Front and rear lights Some pictures: The two front doors, the winch, and opening hood are all powered by an M motor run through a distribution transmission. The three functions are controlled by a servo motor: neutral position (shown in the picture) opens both doors simultaneously, rotating one direction operates the winch, and rotating the other direction will open the hood when it is finished. In the picture below you can see the driving rings of the transmission and the servo motor above it. For me, designing this has been the most fun and challenging part of the model, if any of you are particularly interested I could make a short video about it. The interior and the front end still need a lot of work as you can see. Additionally many exterior pieces around the cabin are not the desired color. I am hoping to get this finished in the next couple of weeks, at which point I will make a final video showing the functions. Of course any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. This is my second large scale MOC (the first one was a dodge challenger that was not very well done imo and has already been destroyed for parts). Hope you guys like it!
