  1. Wow, you have done a good job of this, would love to build it.
  2. 42078 - Mack Anthem

    Yay, finally a video about the b model. I am really liking this, especially since it has a ejector plate in it, cant wait.
  3. 42078 - Mack Anthem

    The Mack anthem is nice, but am I the only one that is excited by the b model more?. Any more info about the b model garbage truck?.
  4. [MOC] Tractor Dump Trailer

    Very nice job on the trailer, I can't wait to build it. I also have Efferman's modded Xerion and was wondering does the M motor struggle to lift the bin?, even going through the clutch gear and the whole pto system?.
  5. [MOC] H-24 Engine

    Very cool, need to put this on the 8457 Power puller, or 2 of them
  6. Here are my mods of the 42062 Container Yard set. Started with making the truck 3 axle instead of 2 just by extending the rear end: Then added indicators front and rear and flashing lights: Made the trailer 3 axle just by tripling the orignal design with a few modifications and added pins for the containers to sit on. You can also turn the pins over to turn it into a flat deck trailer aswell: Added a opening door and back wall to the containers: I built both the straddle and reach stacker and was happy with both: Now I am really happy with the set. Let me know what you think.
  7. my 8043 mods

    XtremeBuilder I didn't bump the thread Lucio before me did. I didn't realise it was from a couple of years ago otherwise I wouldn't have commented on it. agrof I eventually gave up on my 8043 a year or 2 ago even after trying the ultimate 8043 I now have Jurgens Linkbelt which works much better.
  8. my 8043 mods

    Looks good, the cab didn't look right to me aswell on the original. Does your 8043 suffer any of the problems that alot of people had?, eg. main boom struggling to lift, track walking when the body rotates 360? etc.
  9. [MOC] Case 620 HD Tractor

    Amazing job on this and the scraper, one of the best I have seen, and the scraper is good to. I really want to build this but can't stand trying to work out the steps off LDD, does anyone know how to put the steps in order?.
  10. NEW MEMBERS TRAIN TECH Registry

    Hello Train Tech. I have been in the Technic forum since I joined Eurobricks and have always wanted to get into trains, so the other day I decided to buy the 60052 set. I have also brought 2 x train Buffers, extra wagon and CSX sticker set off Ebay and extra tracks. I decided not to bother with the 9v stuff as I have a heap of power functions and rechargable batteries from the technic stuff. I am planning on converting the wagons to loggers and doing a small forestry layout. Hope you guys will be kind enough to help me if I have any problems. Technicfan.
  11. Technicfan's Builds

    Kmuffin do you have a pic of your trailer?.
  12. Technicfan's Builds

    Hi, Thanks, it is the same as the 42039 just all the green has been changed to orange. The only parts that weren't available in orange were the 64681 + 64393 Long smooth panels and the 42003 Axle and pin connector with 2 holes. I have to change those with something else. Everything else was available in orange. Plus it came with a fake V8.
  13. Just thought I would share with you some of the builds I have done over the holidays. The 42039 24H Racecar which I recolored and since I am a Mazda rotary fan I added a 4 Rotor PP engine: The 42048 Go Kart recolored and added a spoiler: Just finished the 42065 Tracked Racer B model, was saving up to buy it then realized I already had all the parts to build it, saved me $150NZ. Powered by a single turbo Madza Rotary 20B and has a rear spoiler and recoloured it in orange and dark grey. Efferman's RC Claas Xerion. Just need to do a tip trailer for it now. Big thanks to Efferman for his mod. This is a FXT Class Racing Mower. I used Eraman's ride on as the base chassis and then did the rest. Big thanks to Eraman. MK's Anti Tank Gun. This thing is cool and fires up to 4-5 metres. Big thanks to MK. Kevin Moo's RC Custom Forklift. I have recolored this into a Hyster, since I use Hyster's daily. I made some changes mainly to the cab area. Big thanks to Kevin Moo. Lasse D's Man Cement Mixer. This one is awesome. I changed the drive system and added another receiver to the other side so now the bowl keeps spinning while it has stopped, put it on a speed controller aswell. Big thanks to Lasse for his design. 42053 Volvo EW160E. I changed it to a normal bucket and added a small ram. Also made a tip trailer for it and connected it to the old hand pump while the rest of it runs off the PF pump. More to come soon.
  14. Does anyone know when the B model instructions for the 42065 RC Tracked racer will come onto the Lego website?.
  15. Very nice, after watching the review of the b model, any chance you can try modding the steering on the b model truck?.
