    [MOC] EXP.SUV - Update and new instructions

    Thanks for the response. I confess, I have not worked with enough mockups of the system with the new CV parts to truly try it out what I perceive are issues to the suspension design. I am happy that you have not had any reliability issues with the front suspension. I'll keep building, and I'll let you know about the final design. Again, well done.

    [MOC] EXP.SUV - Update and new instructions

    Great job with this MOC. I am impressed with the proportions and the design so much, that I am inspired to make something similar. I even purchased a set of the LESU Tires last night for my attempt. As I studied this design a little more, I wondered how well the front suspension design has worked. I have had good success with the floating live axle independent suspension, but I have not tried it with the new Planetary hubs. The new male CV joints that connects to these hubs have quite a lot of friction compared to the previous male CV joints. The older CV joints allows for the axle to slide a little more, helping with the axles to stay connected to the internal differential 12 tooth gears. Do you find that the new male CV joints pull the axle out of the 12 tooth differential gears more often? Or does this design not have the problem of the gears disconnecting from the axle in the front axle?

    [MOC] Atmos Tractor and Implements

    Thanks, it needed a feature other than only the tipping function.
  4. Great job again. I like the subtle changes you made to the great original. The front end looks great.

    [MOC] Atmos Tractor and Implements

    It feels like the only thing I have made in 2020 has been this tractor and all sorts of trailers and implements for it. Hope you enjoy a little dump trailer.

    42107 - Ducati Panigale V4R

    Sep. 1st is what TLG says currently.
  7. Well done. I loved @agrof's little roadster, and this change is a nice little addition. The packaging in the rear behind the seats is well done. Great job.
  8. Great job, this Kalmar turned out great. The cab turned out perfect, and the rear sides over the wheels look great.

    I'm sorry I misunderstood. The trailer is Fishertechnik, and the tractor is 68mm F and 81mm R.

    Thanks @Ludo Visser, the tires are 60mm Fischertechnik. I have used these before, but most of the time I use the 80mm Fischertechnik tire. I'll get to some instructions sometime.

    Not my best work, but I wanted to finish this little executive helicopter. Features: Main rotor and tail rotor Working swashplate Working landing gear More at my flickr.
  13. Super. I trust your measurements and decisions, as I can only see the proportions from the pictures. And like I said, the changes you made helped a lot. Mudguards will help some more. And I like the kissing forks, so don't give this feature up just because my eyes may be off a little. I'm looking forward to the bodywork now.
  14. That looks much better. But I would still go a little more if you could. Maybe trying to "skinny" the kissing fork mechanism now. This seem to be where the rest of the bulk seems to reside.

    42112 Concrete Mixer Truck

    It looks like there is a linear clutch under the drum as well. Is this is for the rotation of the rear chute slewing? Actually, it looks like the rear chute is manual, and the clutch is for the drum rotation. I think I got confused thinking the gearbox was for two different functions, when it seems like its for connection and disconnection to the truck while driving.
