  1. I tried different configurations, but all turned out more cumbersome... :-/ I now stuck with my first idea and build the chassis, currently waiting for more biscuit pieces:

    42131 - CAT D11T Bulldozer

    The 7L track works with the overall width of 50. This thing will be friggin huge. Length of over 100 studs....
  3. The thing is, Lego slapped a 11+ patch on the Defender, but a 18+ patch on the Ferrari. It should have been the other way around. TLC always tried to broaden their audience and the thinking is: "gaining two new costumers and losing one is still a win", which is sad but makes total sense for a profit organisation. As long as 2...5 good ones out of 15 models are out each year, the AFOL fan base is satisfied and won't rebell too much or drop the brand alltogether. As the car theme in technic runs well, I think TLC sticks with the plan of small, medium to big and premium vehicles sizes.

    42126 - Ford F150 Raptor

    Thanks @Bartybum ! Blue and red ones look better than the orange one imho ;-)
  5. 42029 had a winch and tipping bed, so two functions more than we expect from the Raptor ;-)

    42126 - Ford F150 Raptor

    According to Promobricks, price tag is 139 €. Lower front bumper seems like curved panel 3x7 and the new 2x3 liftarms curved in dbg on the sides.

    42126 - Ford F150 Raptor

    It looks nice but if the older info is right (1379 pieces for 149,99 EUR), then this is overpriced as hell. I mean, it's the same price as the upcoming 42128 Tow Truck...

    42129 - 4x4 Mercedes-Benz Zetros

    Agreed to the first point. I don't think there will be a significant degradation on the tires, given the use outside. The model isn't that heavy the tires would wear out. Also there has been a Jeep model from CADA using diff locks before.

    [wip] crane truck

    This is just a glorious example of function and form. I love the wheels on this one, gives a much sturdier and more heavy-duty look than the normal tires. On this: Can the outriggers really lift this thing up? I'd swap the connectors in the kinematics for 1x4 halfbeam liftarms as older ones tend to slip out easily. Great job :-)
  10. Thanks guys :-) Is there a more compact solution for a 4-way gearbox? Each red gear has to be activated independetely.
  11. A few news on this model: Boom is finished and working really well (need few yellow panels before showing real pics). The upper body really gives me headaches. I reworked it again and again. I combined the boom extension and crane hook mechanism via a two way gearbox, Now I am really thinking of combining all 4 functions (boom extension, boom lifting, hook lifting and outriggers into a 4 way gearbox, activated just by the LBG lever on the right side... what do you guys think?
  12. @LoMaC Your builts really have a nice flow and look just so consistent. As many said, this really is more like an official model. It's hard to replicate a real vehicle in that scale, even harder to do with the limited parts. It's really funny you had to use the flex axle for the stiffening bars at the backend of the rollcage :D
  13. Lego announced an event on June 26th . As Lego Technic will also be one centered theme, hopefully we'll get more info on new sets. Also the Sian has been published as the life size lego version according to Promobricks Aside from that: Why hadn't the 42126 IP vehicle and the 42131 CAT Dozer be mentioned anywhere in the leaked 2H 2021 catalog? Isn't this meant to represent all models from June to December? And 42127 and 42130 are completely missing...

    [TC20] 8848 Tipper Truck

    Nearly all axles and pins are also from the studded era :-P

    [TC20] 8848 Tipper Truck

    This already is one of my favorite TC20 models so far, looks really good. I think the built bucket doesn't really fit here. The newer black one on the other hand is too small. But there is an older 14 stud wide bucket available on bricklink, which I also used for my Liebherr L518 wheeled loader MOC. Not the newest one, though (1988 - 1990).
