    [WIP] Ute supercar

    Very interesting solution. How much weight are you expecting this to handle? -ED-
  2. I found pics of a Nissan in your flickr stream.

    Almost there!

    What model is this? And do you have a build thread for it?

    I'm planning a Nissan Patrol my self, and this seems very interesting. The only part that sharply separates it form a Patrol is the rear end...

    By the way, Very Nice Build!!

      This is a Nissan Xterra. I had a WIP topic here, but never got around to publishing the final model. It's been finished for a few years now and has visited 5 conventions, so I guess it's time that I publish it and move on. Feel free to look over the WIP topic in the meantime while I'm preparing final model photos.

      Thank you. Looking forward to seeing the presentation topic!

  3. I was expectong you to drop some... :) I am just building it. Have found a few quick mods I wanna make, like a 1 stud easy lift. But I would really like to make a more realistic suspention setup for this model. It deserves better. -ED-
  4. It make it a lot easier to do a aftermarket (or factory) lift for the car... The Lego model suffers from this. It's very hard to apply a lift (above 1 stud) without rebuilding the frame... -ED-

    42110 - Land Rover Defender

    Use plasti-dip! It can be pulled off like a thin rubber layer after you decide to return them to original. I use it among other things to increase grip on lego tracks. -ED-

    I was expecting something very different, far more superhero like... But this is very cool! Nice idea, and even better execution! =D -naz
  7. Looking forward to this. It's a great idea! -ED-

    [HELP] Open vs Locked Differential

    Hi. First off. If you make a crawler or other off road vehicle with 4 wheel steering with the same steering angle in front and rear it would not need a center diff to maintain a good turning circle as the two outer and the two inner wheels will turn at the same rpm and the will be not rpm difference between the front and rear diff rotation speed. This I think is the best way to go. Two wheels on separate axles must loose traction before it looses propulsion. Second: I have a compact design for a robust Torsen diff. It's based on the basic design, but realized with small turntables an reinforcements integrated in the design. If I remember I can upload it when I get home tonight. Third: Lockable diffs are the best solution, but hard to make robust in Lego. A pneumatic activator is probably the best way to go and there are several designs out there, but it requires a pump and a motorized valve that takes a lot of space in a model. -ED-

    Very nice system! This is mesmerizing to look at... :) I suggest using the Lego Apollo rocket as load in shows. -Espen D-

    Freightliner M2 112 Model

    Sorry for double posting, but as this has little to do with the last post I'll do it anyway. Another benefit of the 1:16 scale is the Technic figures. They are somewhere in the range of 1:20 to 1:17 scale, and fit quite well as extra detail for models of 1:16 to 1:20 scale. Here are a few examples that might be in your interest. Just remember these are hard to come by, and quite expensive. Though for a display model they might be just the dot over the i you need to make it pop. -ED-

    Freightliner M2 112 Model

    My best guess of cost for a 1:11 scale model would be closer to $ 2000-2500, depending on the builder and the level of detail you would want. With 1:16 scale a full RC model with lots of extra functions and a very detailed scale body should sit around $1000-1500, again depending on the builder. By the way, integrating standard RC equipment can be tough on the ego parts, so I suggest going with Lego Power Functions and the third party Bluetooth options with a mobile phone as a controlling device. This is the most used solution among us adult fans of Lego in the Technic theme. To see what level of detail is possible i 1:16 scale i recommend checking out these models: PS: Watch videos in all topics to see the integrated functions. With brick built body: Mostly Technic construction (some brick detailing): http://www.designer-han.nl/lego/stonetrailertruck.htm And for comparison, here is a 1:11 scale model... -ED-

    Freightliner M2 112 Model

    Hi. I'm guessing you want something like this: To make this in 1:12 scale the closest you can come with the tires are the unimog tires from the 8810 Unimog, and they would make the model about 1:11 scale and very big! An estimated 37 studs tall and 90 studs in length. Going down to the standard truck tire used in the 8258 crane truck among others, you will end up with a scale of 1:16,7. This will still make the model about 25 studs tall, and about 60 studs in length. Building in the 1:16,7 scale is a lot cheaper, but can also be harder if details are a priority. However if functionality and RC is required this is the scale I would go for. The model in this scale would be around 8 inch tall and around 20 inch in length. The 1:11 scale will allow for a lot more details, but the weight will somewhat limit functionality. There will however be room to make steering, suspention, engine and other fuctions very detailed. I would however not recommend making it RC, but a lot of other functions could be motorized. The model in this scale would be around 11.6 inch tall and around 28 inch in lenght. There are some other rare tires that could be used, but they would make the model a lot more expensive, and non of them fit well with 1:12 scale, but could get closer to 1:15 scale. There is also the option of using non lego tires, but that again depends on what is wanted from the model. It would also be nice if you could tell us what level of detail and functionality you want. Should it be pure lego, should it include some 3rd party pieces like tires, RC/Bluetooth etc, should it be motorized, have motorized functions? And last and most important, what build style do you want? I mostly build pure Technic models with very realistic functions, but I do not make bodywork form system parts. I often include RC and motorized functions, and want things like steering angles and suspensions to be realistic, and I'm open to use some 3rd party solutions where lego is lacking (mostly tires and control systems). Unfortunately I do not have a lot of my models online, but this forklift from a few years back shows of my style quite well. Linde 3 ton forklift. -ED-
  13. The hardest build I've had must be 8865. It is in no way the most complex, but it is very hard due to the high amount of parts pr step in the instruction. The most complex however is in my opinion one of these: 8110, 42054, 42009, 42043 I have not included the supercars as the only complex ting about them are the (rather bad) gearboxes. The models I've listed are compact interesting builds with a large number of functions and possibilities for modifications. There are a few other like the 8043 that could have made the list, but lacks a complex gearbox/geartrain. -Naz-

    Full Size Bugatti Chiron out of LEGO

    Quite impressive! This explains the price of PF-elements... They have to earn enough to finance all the motors in this...

    [MOC] CAT 914k

    That's a lovely little old style Technic model. Good to see someone still making them in these panel covered times. The model seems very functional, and the aesthetics are perfect for what a Technic model should be! PS: Where did you get the tires? I need some "small" tractor style tires for a model I'm working on.
