  1. I'd like to share my most recent model - 1:10.5 replica of 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429. Boss 429 was the high performance variant of first generation Mustang, equipped with a powerful 7.0 V8 engine. Only 1359 were made, and now there is one more :D Watch it in all its glory: Functions: RC drive - RWD with differential, 2x L motors RC transmission - 4 speeds, sequential, M motor Detailed V8 engine replica with fan connected directly to propulsion motors RC steering - with moving steering wheel, M motor Front suspension - double wishbone Rear suspension - floating axle Openable hood with lock controlled from the cabin Openable doors with locks Openable trunk Adjustable seats (sliding forward - backward and seatback angle adjustment) RC front lights Please watch the video to see this machine in action and for more details. I am quite happy with how I managed to include all the functions without compromising on proportions and interior in a relatively small model (46cm long). The biggest challenges were to fit piston engine over the suspension with the blue air intake under the hood without lifting it (as the result I had to make the hood hollow below the external air intake but still it was tight) and to fit interior over the gearbox. For that purpose I made the transmission very flat with gear shifting shaft actually crossing the drive shaft... (can be seen in action in the video - 2:30) I hope you liked this model.
  2. After 42099 and the whole new PU system, I'm here with a MOC that uses something a bit older - RC system. After all these years it is still the most powerful 100% LEGO solution. Watch it in all its glory: Features: RC drive - 2x RC motor, geared 3:1 (slower output) RC steering Front suspension - double wishbone, soft, long travel, positive caster angle, 7 stud ground clearance Rear suspension - floating axle, soft, long travel, 5.5 stud ground clearance Please watch the video to see this machine in action and for more details. I hope you liked this model.
  3. Wait, where have you got the mudguard panel in black from?
  4. Very clean build. I really like the integration of technic and system around the roof pillars behind the doors
  5. Very interesting mechanical solution! However, as far as I can see it cannot unlock the differential once locked, am I right?
  6. @Gray Gear I know... But I haven't had 5th class tire. Also, it actually drives quite well with this wheel.
  7. I've posted a video with off-road test driving with chassis of this model but forgotten about it. Here it is: @fosamax @Clawp Well, it depends on whether there is enough demand for these.
  8. Looks like the cost itself of those electronic components is high. If 900 pieces set with one hub costs 230$, then its ~150$ for electronics. Buwizz+servo+2L is 170$, 2 IR receiver +servo+2L+AA battery box is 85$. But buwizz gives us Lipo and ludicrous mode. Or maybe there is Lipo in control+?
  9. 42054 Claas for wheels and hubs and 9398 for electric components and extra hard shock absorbers. You really need one of sets with these shocks (9398 or 8110), they are excellent and very useful.
  10. Maybe you could add an aditional LA, even small, at a different angle. It could be used only at the beginning of lifting process. At the next part of lifting it doesn't have to be connected at all. What do you think?
  11. I hope they will still use PF instead of PU, as those systems are not compatible and i don't want to throw away all my pf parts to buy pu components...
  12. A nice mod! Rusty looks with not rusty performance
  13. I' ve decided to make an alternative model for 42054 CLAAS XERION 5000 TRAC VC set. I' ve wanted to design something different from all those excellent c models already made, so I made a truck capable of off-road conditions, with crane and many other functions. The result: Functions: rear axle drive with 4 piston engine steering live axle suspension side outriggers cabin tilting rear PTO (power take off) crane arm rotation crane arm 1st stage elevation crane arm 2nd stage elevation grabber closing/opening Please watch the video to see this machine in action and for more details. This model is powered by one m motor with rotation direction selection. It powers main selector, crane selector. and PTO. Main selector switches between worm gear powered functions and arm rotation. When worm gear functions are selected, there is another switch to choose between outriggers and cabin tilting. The crane selector switches between 1st and 2nd stage elevation. I had to use some interesting (I think) solutions because of parts selection in 42054 set: Piston engine There are no piston engine parts in the set, so i made them from some connectors. You can see it working in the video. Suspension There are no shock absorbers or wishbones too. So I' ve made a suspension based on twisting axles: Every wishbone is suspended independly. 3 of those connected to axle make a well-working long travel soft off-road suspension: Grabber There was a grabber in original set, but when building the grabber I've already used the worm gear for more important functions, so I' ve designed a different locking mechanism: Turning the green axle makes the red grabber frame move up and down and becouse of engaging the blue knob gear with h-frame opening and closing blue grabber. Instructions Instructions are already available here on rebrickable! I hope you liked this model.
  14. @letsbuild54 You' re welcome @BusterHaus Thank you, it could be b-model especially that there was no b-model in 42054, just attachment.
  15. Nice model! How about its lifting capacity?
  16. Can you make some off-road testing video?
  17. Hi everyone, I'm glad to announce that instructions are already available here on rebrickable! Happy building!
  18. That's simply awesome... Does the "rock" output to the truck has its own drive, is it synchronised with the main drive?
  19. I' ve made a scale model of semi-trailer truck with a trailer. It's in 1:60 scale, so wouldn't look out of place in a minifigure scale Lego City. But it is remotely controlled. Video: Functions: drive (truck RWD) - L motor steering (with right geometry) - Servo motor remotely openable trailer's cargo door - M motor Everything is controlled remotely using SBrick, powered by standard 8881 battery box. Internals of the trailer, door opening mechanism, battery box and sbrick were packed here: Please watch the video to see this machine in action and for more details. __________________________ Feel free to share your thoughts. I hope you liked this model.
  20. Yes, indeed. Parking it is not easy, but fun too, yes.
  21. @Aventador2004 @MajklSpajkl I used ~1850 parts, ~100 leftovers. @pagicence @MajklSpajkl Good idea! I will do so after making instructions, just will have to add drivetrain, motors etc.
  22. I don't think it all is a problem unless it affects model's performance, which is great. Excellent model @Sariel.
  23. Nice model, I like the front lights design
  24. Thank you all! @pagicence I've just reuploaded pictures using bricksafe, is it working now? It is not unimog replica but it was an inspiration, as the most famous offroad truck...
  25. I' ve made a scale model of this russian all terrain vehicle. I've tried to make it as detailed as possible. Video: Functions: - 4x4 driveshaft with differentials (XL motor) - Steering: brakes that block wheels on one side of the vehicle. (M motor) - Working differential lock (M motor) - Working LEDs - Tires from 42054 - Openable front and rear hatches and windscreen, working wipers Everything is controlled remotely using SBrick. The drivetrain with differentials and portal axles: The steering mechanism is, I think, more interesting. Wheels on one side of the vehicle may be blocked using the driving ring. Than differentials transmits all the power to wheels on the other side. (that red connector represents driving ring) And the differential lock. The driving ring connects right and left differential outputs. And photos of side without wheels and the underside: Please watch the video to see this machine in action and for more details. I hope you liked this model.
