    Ford Mustang Hoonicorn V2

    Some of you may have seen it already, but the stickers for this awesome creation are available on my website! (This sticker set differs to the ones seen on the pictures during the release, which was not made by me) Really looking forward to see the first pictures of the model equipped with the stickers!

    FORD GT - Jaap sticker package ready

    @technic_addict There are 2 different sticker styles in the instruction. Both versions are on the sheet. For option A there are some black stickers + ford logo to finish the front bumper properly. For option B there are the same black stickers with an orange line in the middle + a lot of orange stripes to cover the rest of the car with. We will post a photo of the set soon!

    [MOC] Mercedes-Benz Actros MP3 - Mammoet & Nooteboom

    Thanks all for the nice comments! Last month the truck was presented at LEGO World Copenhagen DK. For this event i build a large extension on the Nooteboom semi trailer which then could be loaded with a huge concrete bridge part. This resulted in a combination length of 3 meters! See them in action in the short video below. Thanks to @2LegoOrNot2Lego... for driving the truck around Last but not least i am working on an alternative for the Dark Grey Arches #6060. Since these trucks drained the world supply of these arches. OR build the truck with black fenders and your problem is solved More information about that soon
  5. During the first days many sets where sold which resulted in an empty stock as bruno said before. Just when i was able to restock them all i had te depart to Denmark for LEGO World, which was great fun. The DTM cars seems to be well known in Denmark Bruno All Orders should be shipped yesterday except for those who have forgotten to pay the shipping costs. Please take in mind these have to be added manually since the system doesn't support it to link it automatically to your country. Shipping of the sticker sets is back to normal now, If you order today, it will be send within 24h. Thanks Bruno for letting me design the stickers again, it was a nice challenge to measure and fit it all on the car. If there is anybody which already applied the stickers let me know some feedback! I would like to know what can be improved on the next sheet. If there is somebody with questions about the stickers don't hesitate to contact me.

    [MOC] Mercedes-Benz Actros MP3 - Mammoet & Nooteboom

    Two trucks - one trailer... you can do the math Not sure which one though. Something with a lot of wheels for sure. Thanks all for being confused - Its really nothing more than 3400 stacked bricks guys allright maybe some stickers.

    [MOC] Mercedes-Benz Actros MP3 - Mammoet & Nooteboom

    Beneath the stickers there are just bricks and some more bricks - As you would expect from a LEGO model But i don't have a proper foto of it at this time. I used some brackets and slopes to make the lines from the grille continue in the bumper. When you are a little bit creative you can build an IR receiver on the place of the Sbrick. I am sure it can be done easily. - reply on your edit: The only hard to find thing in this MOC are the Dark Grey arches. But you can decide to build it with black fenders instead. Almost guessed it right - Its a rail bridge located at Zwolle which reaches over the Ijssel (the local river here) Yes i will! but not anytime soon. When i have a new trailer i will make a new video. Thanks everyone for the nice reactions!
  8. By reading the title you may thought - Yeah i know this model, you designed it 4 years ago... Yes... but nope. This is an entire new version relying on the same real truck but this time in 2 different colours. The previous version designed in December 2012 used Technic beams and liftarms. Since brick build models can be way more detailled - I chose that technique to build the new model with. Also i discovered the truck could use some more power so there are now 2 PF XL motors in it. There are a lot of improvements on this new 2016 version. All features, included by the fact its SBrick controlled, are listed below: Powerful 8x4 drive train by 2 Power Functions XL motors 2 axle steering by Power Functions servo motor 2 Power Functions front LED lights Sbrick Controlled Openable cabin doors with realistic hinge design Openable storage doors with realistic placed lever behind the seats Tilt able cabin with easy acces to the V8 fake engine Fully adjustable seats and steering column Fifth wheel suited for automatic steered trailers Front and rear tow bars Easy accessible Rechargeable battery box on top of the cooler behind the cabin Improved playability with sturdy overall build quality Off course there is a building instruction available for these new models. Compared to all my other instruction this one goes again one step further in quality. With all stickers implemented in the instruction you can't make a mistake anymore regarding their position.

    SBrick General Discussion

    @djm We tried exactly that. Not once, but 3 times on 3 different android phones and all Sbricks which i normally use with my iPhone are unable to be read by the android app. Even the simplified app on android couldn't see the bricks. The only thing i know is that my iPhone can connect to Sbricks which have the newest firmware and the IOS app works with those bricks without any problems. (Hardware V4 or V5 doesn't matter) But getting the bricks updated is a bit like mission impossible. Maybe the new IOS app will repair this issue and let me update the firmware on those Sbricks using my iPhone. Let just wait for that IOS app and hope for the best. But if it ain't gonna help.... We have to stand on the show with dead models and drinking coffee instead of driving around and let our models bring us the coffee

    SBrick General Discussion

    Together with @2LegoOrNot2Lego... @Davekuhh and Non-Eurobricks member Huib van der Hart we are attending LEGO world next week. And we all run the IOS version of the app. What @2LegoOrNot2Lego... says... We are having huge stability problems. It's is not possible to control more than just one SBrick in 1 Profile otherwise the app crashes on launch of the profile We have to set the the Max output on 99% otherwise the slider's and buttons won't work The app crashes randomly And if you are able to control something it rests for a few seconds or minutes and the app crashes. All our Sbricks display Firmware version 0 and hardware version 0 We are unable to update firmware versions. The iPhone says it has the newest firmware version which could never be possible because we even tested a brand new one out of the box. If we try to connect our SBricks to an Android based phone their app crashes too and we are not able to update the firmware trough an Android device So, pretty unstable.
  11. I was asked to design a sticker set for the awesome Terex excavator. The sticker sheet will turn the Terex into a North American construction group version with Lego red coloured stripes around which perfectly fit on the technic bodywork. There are also some small details included like engine stickers and excavator number. Because the popularity of this MOC these stickers are now available for everyone. They are available at the JaapTechnic website: http://bit.ly/1U3Xfvb Here are some pictures with the stickers photoshopped on them. Some real photos will be place here soon i think Terex RH 400 - Sticker set by Jaap Kroon, on Flickr Terex RH 400 - Sticker set by Jaap Kroon, on Flickr Terex RH 400 - Sticker set by Jaap Kroon, on Flickr

    [MOC] BMW M4 DTM 1:10 racecar with PF

    Thanks for promoting this Brunojj1! My work is done at this point. It was a pleasure designing these sheets! Anyone interested in this nice BMW can now complete their build with some high quality stickers just like official LEGO sets. Keep on building

    Steering for Trailer Wheels?

    About steering axles on trailers: You really need an system which is based on the rotation of the fifth wheel compared to the trailer. If you hook the steering of the trailer on the same port as the steering for the truck you will end up with a combination which will be impossible to reverse in a proper way. The 8 axle Nooteboom which i have designed uses fully automated electronic steering with 100% LEGO bricks. It's a piece of cake to reverse the Nooteboom into tight parking spots for example. I will show a video of the trailer in action. As you can see it works totally smooth behind the truck. For those who are interested in building such a system i can only say, have a look at my instructions which are available on my website. 1 tip for your trailer which i base on the pictures is see here. The differences between the angles of the steered axles are way to big for a trailer this long. Your turning point will be around the middle of the trailer so when you put an non steering axle on the middle of the trailer you can clearly think about the steering angles on the rear axles. Hopefully that will help you out with the angles.

    [MOC] Nooteboom 8 Axle Semi Trailer

    @ Technicbuilder, Looks great! Thanks for sharing! You managed to build the trailer exactly as displayed in the building instructions Off course the new SLT will be better then every model I build before. Currently you can clearly see the level of detail difference between the truck and trailer. At the moment i am recreating all my sticker sheets. The Nooteboom is already done. This year i invested a lot in machinery to create these sticker sheets, and if i am allowed to say, they are currently the same quality as the ones from TLG. (Also pre-cut) On my Facebook page i posted a picture of the new sticker sheets. https://www.facebook.com/jaaptechnic/posts/421654138031588 All the other sticker sheets will follow this technique and will be available from the beginning of 2016
