    [MOC] Mini Off-Road Crane

    Nicely done. Do the Jeep tires fit?

    42128 - American Tow Truck

    This sure does look like a winner. Does the third rear axle raise up?

    [MOC] Sprite Retro Buggy

    Nice work. Engine on the rear axle is very appropriate for vintage RWD buggies.

    I realize not every set would work, but for something like 6989 Mega Core Magnetizer, I would personally have no objection to the original studded windshield being present, plus just enough to interface with the magnets. That is probably a slippery slope, so we might have to accept that some sets just won't work because their original parts are too iconic.

    Hmm, I was thinking more of things that walk or crawl, rather than no-vehicle. Technic strandbeest. Some convoluted technic art could be fun though.
  8. I think we'll get there in a few years, and I don't think it would be a bad thing. Focus on mechanical design and buy the pretty shells. Will Lego do it themselves? Never.
  9. Nice job, I really wish there was some sort of better steering part than 48989 / 65489 so ground clearance would be better on these tiny trucks.
  10. Nice work, looks very well integrated.
  11. nice work, looks like fun

    [MOC] Ferrari 365GT4 BB

    @Gray Gear I’m not a monster, there are inner transparent bricks you can see in the first pic for fake LED bulbs. I couldn’t fit 2x 2x2 round due to a bunch of structure for the hood angle, plus the edges of the headlight cover. There is enough inside to look satisfying though. I was originally using trans-neon green for the headlight bulb, which really shows up better through the headlight cover. I had to switch to trans-clear because 1x1 trans-neon green tiles are quite rare.

    I really liked the body work of this MOC, better than most official sets, so it is almost all identical. Changes: Swapped out the popup headlights for something a little more modern, or from a racing 365 Hood grill is a real grill Made the lower grill one stud taller using the new tiny panels at the bottom Hood now opens more like the real thing, uses string to stop itself from folding open too far Engine intake has more of a real grill Fake carburetors Fake exhaust (straight pipes!) Made the whole bottom totally flat by using a half stud vertical offset for the diff. I was *really* tempted to just remove parts of the engine cylinders, but I finally found a honest way Chrome exhaust tips, and it turned out to be fairly annoying to keep a black element to hold all of them My realization after making a few versions of the front suspension is that there really needs to be significant ground clearance with this fender and tire combination. The suspension travel ended up being about half a stud. I still need to look through my collection to find some interesting printed tiles for the instrument cluster, plus figure out if there is any hope for a transmission, but I doubt it.
