    [WIP] ROPA Panther 2 sugar beet harvester

    Hello everybody. A few weeks ago I've started to build a German sugar beet harvester ROPA Panther 2 in 1:17 scale. Here is the fourth version of the chassis and its features (still far away from completion): 2 C+ Smart Hubs (first is for steering and drivetrain and second is for other functions - not finished yet) 2 C+ XL motors for drivetrain (front and rear axle aren't connected together) 1 C+ L motor for front axle's articulated steering 1 C+ XL motor for rear axle's steering Pendular rear axle Front hydraulics operated via 2 short thick pneumatic cylinders Automatic security levers connected to rear steering I'd like to make it fully working (put some bricks on the front belt to go through the whole mechanism and fall into the container), everything works except the cleaning section (no idea how it will work yet) So a lot of work still left to do.... Thank you for visiting! & Comments are welcome.

    The motorbike contest is over so I managed to make some new progress (the biggest succes is the belt from rubber parts now runs smoothly enough not as in previous versions): I also started to mount pneumatic hosing....I'm not 100% satisfied with that but it's OK now. And a photo from the underneath: Thank you for visiting!

    [TC19] Custom Fat Boi

    I also haven't yet. By the way, my bike also has a wide front tyre. As I said before, I like this concept and wish you best of luck to the competition.

    [TC19] Custom Fat Boi

    I like it, but there is a quite big problem here... I also came up with the idea of an "articulated" bike, but what about steering? If you will only steer, everything would be alright, but when you also tilt during cornering, the driver would have to push/pull the handlebars against the whole weight of the bike, wouldn't he? Anyway, interesting solutions were done here and hope the driver will be brawny enough .

    [TC19] The Predator - Concept bike

    Hello everybody! A day ago I started to build a motorbike for the new contest. First of all I wanted a rimless bike, then, after many unsuccesful attempts, I gave up. Because I have only the off-road motorcycle tyres, I had to choose for this futuristic model some unusual ones - from the 42056 Porsche 911 GT3 RS set. It's not based on any real bike. Here's the current progress: 2-cylinder fake engine Steering 2 speed simple gearbox Suspension And some photos:

    Thank you. I'm delighted you like it because I put quite a lot of effort to make this shape.

    Yes, I asked @Jim. These wheels are allowed, aren't they?

    [TC19] The Predator - Concept bike

    First of all, I'm glad you like it. And yeah, I also got an idea to use only 1 tyre per wheel, but it looks absolutely horrible... Finally, of course I'll make more detailed photos.

    [TC19] The Predator - Concept bike

    So minor cosmetic updates are finally done. Here are contest photos: Thank you for visiting this topic. & Good luck to everyone in the contest! This expressed it well, so I let it be its name. Thx. Thank you! As I said before, the rear lights' solution is quite simple, but took me a lot of time to find it out.

    [TC19] The Predator - Concept bike

    Many thanks. I really put a lot of effort to it. Some details still left to do.

    [TC19] The Predator - Concept bike

    There are 2 offroad motorcycle tyres and two grooves on the rim (supposed to fit only one tyre) - so one groove per tyre's inner side.

    [TC19] The Predator - Concept bike

    Thank you! The rear light also my favourite part. The solution is very easy but took me a lot of time to find it out. By the way, I took inspiration for the front suspension from your motorbike.

    [WIP] ROPA Panther 2 sugar beet harvester

    As it's now, there are no problems with the small turntable. In fact the joint is strong enough even without any turntable, so I used it mainly because of its teeth as a gear.

    [WIP] ROPA Panther 2 sugar beet harvester

    I also got this idea, but after some experiments, I decided for the small one, which anyway looks better. And what about its weight? Well, it's more than 3kg heavy now... I'm doing my best...the last finished model was my TC18 entry

    [WIP] ROPA Panther 2 sugar beet harvester

    Well, there has been quite a lot of progress here. First of all, the chassis had to be completely rebuilt because the previous version was not solid enough. Here's how the structure looks like (the turntable placed here is not on the current chassis like this): This rebuild allowed me to cram more functions inside (only working steering wheel yet). And with the steering wheel, there's a little problem: because all of the ports of the hub were used, I couldn't fit another motor in here so i used the turntable's teeth as a gear which rotates the steering wheel. But what have I forgotten at is, that this vehicle has 2 axles steered. So when I steer only rear axle, the steering wheel doesn't move... Anyway here's how the model looks like now: Thank you for visiting this topic. & Comments are welcome.

    [TC19] The Predator - Concept bike

    Some progress has been done since the last post. First of all, I've chosen new wheels. And I also started to rebuild the frame... And this is how it looks with those wheels. And here is a little attempt to build a V6 engine for it. Thank you for visiting this page!

    All of the used parts are official LEGO parts, but in my opinion, I haven't used them as it's supposed to...
