  1. I love the slurry tank, and would like to see more of the of the implement on the first tractor. Also, I know the front exhaust pipe was not accurate for the 42054 model year, but it looks so cool and it was a missed opportunity for TLG. I'm glad you added it. This set screams for added trailers and implements. Great job.

    @Didumos69 Right, the ratios or only for the gearbox, the other gears for the rest of the driveline work well currently, so I won't change those. I'll need to make some changes to the frame to accommodate the gear changes, but that should not be too much of a problem. Again, thanks for your help.

    @Didumos69 Thanks. This is the kind of help I needed. To your assumptions: Yes, you are looking at the left of the gearbox. The close side is 1st and 2nd gear. The 16 tooth gear in the back is for the steering, so it can be disregarded for this conversation. Your render confirms my fears, basically, my current installation (photo) is backwards. I'll switch the gears to be like they are shown in the render, and have the output be the 20t gear, as it will link to a 16t on the crankshaft. If I understand correctly, this will give me the following: 1:3 5:9 1:1 5:3 Thanks for your help.

    Great build again. I love the front seats. And the folding rear seats made me smile. I love these kind of details. Also the black looks great, and those headlights are prefect.

    OK, I have been looking at this for far too long. After too many transmission designs, I'm not sure this does what I want it too. See below: Are the ratios in this 4 speed transmission in the correct order? Input to engine to engine is the black 20t gear on the left. Output to rear axle is the DBG 8t gear on the right. Is everything right? What do I need to change?
  6. Sorry I could not participate this time. Great entries all. 24: 1014: 610: 411: 32: 216: 1

    Sorry to bump this after a couple of years, but instructions are now available here.

    That's the one. From the Lego Technic Facebook.

    The hub at 0:14 in the video is the same rear hub as in the past. Coupled with 4185 Pulley wheel the old hub and new wheel can be connected. I'm not yet convinced of new hubs. Remember how excited we were at this point with 42056. I'm keeping my expectations low until I am proved otherwise.
  10. I am starting to think the only way I get any of these is with Rebrick or TC contest. Those prices!
  11. The W engine design from the video seems a little too basic for me. Very surprised by the pins in the wheels. They are going in the wrong direction by making wheels and hubs more proprietary, first with the 911, now with this. Hmmmm.
  12. It was well deserved. Thanks for your participation on this forum. We look forward to more fun builds.

    Here is the WIP.
  14. Great job. I love the size, and the functions. The black looks great as well. Picture of the underside?

    Winter in the northern hemisphere for me means building, so I am hard at work on a number of different things. The Cat 914K is about done, and the Claas Atos is done. Now I am working on a couple of implements. Also, why not start another Unimog?
