    [TC20] 8462 Redux

    Probably not a video I only have a phone and no tripod so I cant demonstrate the functions and record art the same time but I may think about it. I don't have any other turquoise parts and I'm not sure there are any equivalent parts to do a modern version but they are stud less. Also if you insist on all modern parts then the wheels and air tanks can't be used.

    42128 - Heavy-Duty Tow Truck

    @Timorzelorzworz Stud.io doesn't have pneumatic tubes as a part and they are not part of the flex system. (If they built stud.io around the harder Technic parts they would be saving themselves a lot of grief in the future bat that's a different rant.) The flexible hoses are for the smaller hard tubes so the diameter is smaller. when I was making my version of the 8868 i used LDCad for the tubes and then import them into Stud.io via the part designer tool. I used Thus Guide to create the tubes. Its quite a time consuming process and even importing the parts has a trick to it to get them to have the right orientation.

    So i Have the functions added even though this is for the competition and I can probably make more for show than function I still find myself trying to make the model stronger still unsatisfied with the amount of flex where the switches connect.

    42128 - Heavy-Duty Tow Truck

    I'm no expert on air tanks but I would assume if it was an air tank it would be cylindrical for uniform pressure within the vessel? and comparing it to the old tank that wouldn't have much volume which would create more pressure than storage? In general I don't think we will see another air tank as with out a pressure regulator I have been rebuilding the 8462 and I found that while the air tank does store more air to use the functions the first few uses after its at pressure are so fast that its hard to control.

    I own the original so was going to use those as this if for the completion. However, normally i try to build these with parts that a current or highly available but I don't think there is anything close the only other silver rims I can think of are the 8448 super street but there just as old.

    42128 - Heavy-Duty Tow Truck

    Ah Sorry, yes I know that's a frame. I was using to illustrate that's what a frame should look like. I think the rear section has 2 alternating beams the gears being used as functions throw too much shadow to be 100%

    42128 - Heavy-Duty Tow Truck

    Its not a frame if you look at the brick link image it is smooth around the sides and that pattern can only be seen on the top and as its flush with the orange panel it cant be a frame. https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=64179&name=Technic, Liftarm, Modified Frame Thick 5 x 7 Open Center&category=[Technic, Liftarm]#T=C https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=39794&name=Technic, Liftarm, Modified Frame Thick 7 x 11 Open Center&category=[Technic, Liftarm]#T=C

    42128 - Heavy-Duty Tow Truck

    I think we are getting new alternating beams The front square is how a frame looks side on when horizontal for the rear image to be a frame it must be vertical but you can see that its not. so probably an 11 and a 9 looking at the space and where its round at the end.

    So have been building the structure and crane trying to recreate the style using Technic over bricks Think the turquoise parts will have to remain as that colour has not returned to stud-less Technic.

    Yes probably wishful thinking or maybe like the Volvo 42053 they will included a compressor so you can motorise yourself. seems to be plenty of space to put one in.

    As I cant see a manual pneumatic pump and its called power tow on the 42128 I think it might have a compressor which possibly means the new dumb battery box may be in it finger crossed.
