  1. Looks cool! Is it also compatible with the 42098 carrier?

    42110 - Land Rover Defender

    Looks like its steered from the knob on the roof and the steering wheel is functional. Already beats out the 42056 and 42083 for me... Also a winch and those heavenly seats!!

    Wow this is amazing!! The techniques are complex, but look seamless in the finished product. I look forward to seeing many of your future MOCs!

    42110 - Land Rover Defender

    Looking at the door handle, there is the potential for it to have a "locking" mechanism- the axle hole towards the rear of the car is not attached to anything. I would look forward to something even like where you need to turn the handle before opening the door.

    Articulated truck question

    You could try looking at the 42080 for inspiration...

    Forgive me if this has been mentioned already, but are those new red wire clips? Very handy.

    42099 - 4x4 X-treme Off-Roader

    I get the idea with this crawler, I'm just wondering if they could have made the front end a little prettier, like in the 9398...

    42098 - Car Transporter

    Speaking of which, how is HOG done? I don't see beacons and there is no gear to be seen (unless it is buried on the roof in the rack).

    42098 - Car Transporter

    The front of the truck almost bears a resemblance to an IVECO. Uwe has redeemed the 42070....

    42098 - Car Transporter

    That is a lovely B model !!!!!! Also the blue car in the A model is way better looking than the Corvette...

    I'm really liking the look of this... very clever turntable solution- best of luck, I hope you win!!

    [WIP] 42078 C-Model Concept Telehandler

    Yes, so far the circle seems to be okay, if I can just hook it up together... See below: The original idea was a four wheeled handler, but then the boom got too large. So I decided to pop four extra wheels on and call it a concept model . I may consider your idea, though. Thank you!
  13. It has been quite a while since I posted a MOC on Eurobricks so here goes nothing! My current project is a C-model of the 42078 Mack Anthem. I am trying to make a telescopic handler with: Telescopic two-stage boom 4-wheel drive 4-wheel steering Detailed exterior This is my progress so far (it looks very iffy at the moment, and I may scrap the chassis at some point but for now we will see): Top view of the chassis (as you can see, four wheels are driven, four steered although the steering is not hooked up yet) Sideways image showing steering angle Bottom view of chassis showing structural supports Boom with axle connectors for chassis. (The middle U-joint is for support). Side view of boom This is a very ambitious project for my skill level, as my only prior experience with MOCs are nonfunctional ones. Hopefully this one turns out . * Also there is no reference that I could find on Google for a telehandler with 8 wheels, so this is not necessarily based off a specific model. * Thanks for stopping by, Magical Duck

    Very ingenious work with the rover! I look forward to seeing the model progress.
