  1. [MOC][WIP] Steppenwolf

    In that case You might involve metal U-joints (from RC hobby) rather than 3D printed ones, and modify axles to fit inside. But keep in mind, this model was built as manual model, many extra reinforcements, redesign might be needed to keep up the required performance. Not to mention many parts can be destructed: differential,gears, axles...
  2. For me this is one of the most appealing vehicle themed MOCs recently. Clever solutions, moderate size, purpose oriented design, my favorite wheel/tire combo, nice presentation. Everything to like.
  3. Nice and clean solution with the new steering links, like it! Also the performance is great, I am really curious what kind of bodywork will be dropped on. I suggest a rather minimalistic, easy to remove (modular) panel solution.
  4. Is buildability against of this simple solution? I took 5M beam in order to give support in steered positions too.
  5. Answered in Didumos69's Buggy project:
  6. Hi Didumos! To keep the relevant informations in one place, I answer here. I just checked for You: 1) Like a flick missile, not very tight, not very loose. 2) Same - that's why I also have blocking structure below. 3) Super loose. 4) Quite good, You can pull the half pin out without any separation wilingness of the towball. 5) No. (I tried old Binocle ones - don't know if these have been changed during the years.) "The pin with tow ball I'm using disconnects when the front wheels generate too much traction." - Can You explain this in details to understand the phenomenon?
  7. Very good test, too bad You took my sketch design 1:1. That would be my guess, definitely structural reinforcement is needed, sorry for not to explaining that previously. I would test all build by simple shaking, and dropping first. If it holds well, without falling apart, than it is ready for real test. Whatever, it was worthy, lesson learned, for me too - next time I shall provide more detailed ideas. I would increase the wingspan (by 1 more 5x11 panel in each directions), and use liftarms to connect each panel properly together, sandwiched (curved panel - 15L beam - flat panel), or connected from below. Main thing, that try to lock each connections - especially in the middle section - in all X Y Z directions. I am still positive about this project, though be a fail in the end, but definitely interesting to follow.
  8. This is such type of MOC, which I had to look twice to realize it is made of LEGO - great photography compositions! I am very impressed by the look and the functionality (LEGO wise it is good), for me this is also HOF material.
  9. I see now, thanks. In LDD sometimes You need to rebuild assemblies in different sequence - that might help. Background: the constrains which are automatically created, might block the placement of a new part due the system senses it as overconstraining. Bit annoying, but with rebuild in most cases I could solve such issues.
  10. Looks nice (the frame) but a bit busy, and awesome (the whole chassis). What about to build the frame more monochromatic in LBG? One thing what I don't really understand, beside the 9L links look good in the front area, do they actually have structural role? As I see, the red connectors, which to they are connected, can rotate freely, or are the inner axle connections fixed somehow?
  11. I second @J_C 's lines, these were my exact thoughts too immediately. It is a true Technic model.
  12. To answer the question: The window frame turns to black - so easy to see which mode You are in. All the parts are red in this mode, so You need to recolor them, but watch out, if You want to have legal (available) colors, than You need to switch back to LDD mode, and choose there. This will not ruin the parts, which are already added to the scene. Extended allows any color.
  13. Looks great, I was also wondering about rotating the rear stabilizer, to create opposite momentum for balance if the COG is in the front (upper pic). But if it is behind the elevation vector, than it should be like the original (lower picture here, but lazy to rotate the panels back - You get the idea). I am not an aviation expert by any means, but I would like to see, how a Technic construction like this behave. For sure there is a lot testing needed, for sure the technic panels create a lot of turbulence and non predictable forces, but let's see what can be done with existing parts. I am very interested to see some videos. P.S.: prepare further panels with, to increase the wingspan.
  14. What a nice MOC, and presentation. Still, I can not decide what is bigger surprise for me: that such thing actually exists (I just don't see the advantage compared to existing crane platforms), or how well You replicated it.
