  1. Following this one closely. Worried about the sagging of the cabine in the front, but we need to wait and see. Probably a good strong brick built chassis will be able to hold it leveled properly. I used two double stacked technic bricks arrangement to create chassis beams to make an incredible rigid chassis for my 10+ kg mobile crane.
  2. What are you guys talking about?! ATV, Warthog?! It is clearly the M1117! @makushima Sorry for oftopic. I just love all of your recent mini builds, and you even supplied them with free instructions. Thanks for the effort!
  3. Thanks for all the replies and opinions Here are the Guidelines for the SMF forum regarding what is accepted: Representing a real world counterpart Vehicles must be built in minimum scale of around 1:20. Ships, planes, and buildings does not have minimum scale requirement, Built as advanced Model Team, mainly with bricks, plates and tiles,with high level of details and prime execution. Not purely Technic I tend to disagree on this. Let's take this week as an example. From Monday to today (Saturday), there have been 14 MOCs frontpaged. Of that number Technic had 2. So 1/7 of every frontpaged model is Technic. Not so bad, considering how many other themes there are on the Forum. @Jim is working hard on various tools to make that process more automated, so I hope we will make even more than that 1/7 overall 100% Agreed. Most of the SMF models are vehicles of some kind, so fitting perfectly with what we usually see in the Technic Forum. These are my thoughts, too. The amount of new models from SMF may be 2 or 3 per week, so no reason to fear that they will flood the Technic Forum. Quite the opposite, they might add a bit of freshness and diversity. 90%+ of them are vehicles, so they will fit right at home. Agreed that some changes in the SMF rules are in order. As noted above, 90% of the SMF builds are vehicles/vessels, which is fully "compatible" with the usual Technic and ModelTeam builds, but yeah, there is a number of "static" models.
  4. Hey Scale Modeling Forum, Technic and Scale Modeling Staff have been discussing possible changes for the Scale Modeling Forum (SMF). We have come to an agreement that we should return SMF to the Technic Forum, and we would like to hear your thoughts and opinions. Namely, as I am sure most of you are well aware, SMF is terribly inactive. Jim and I really gave our best to pump life to it by frontpaging nearly every model, moving everything from Technic, that fits to the SMF rules, to SMF, but it is still a very inactive forum. We tried our best. The worst thing is, people sometimes choose not to show their models at all, due to inactivity. The main idea is to keep the models visible and to provide for them to get the amount of replies/attention they deserve. The forum could be renamed to Technic, Modelteam and Scale Modeling Forum, with a requirement for every SMF topic to has the [SMF] prefix/tag. If you want to join the discussion, please use this link, it will lead to the main Topic in the Technic Forum. Thanks!

How about we give SMF one more try?

    1:15 REXX Truck

    Got 160 tons of rock, just laying around and bothering you? In this likely scenario, all you need is one of this, a 20 tires, 14 meters long, behemoth mining truck REXX. Created by our Technic member, Desert752. Fully motorized with 5 Buggy RC motors, which propel this 8.5kg machine with ease. Visit its topic HERE or click on the picture! Don't forget your mining helmet.
  7. I am here for "moderating" a GBC contest, but since my knowledge of that particular line is limited, I would need, as Jim put it, a captain

    General Part Discussion

    There have been some user made tests to determine the strength of each shock absorber and how they compare. We have had several topics here, too. In one of them, Blakbird explained a lot of stuff regarding them (they are a part of his job). Anyway, this photo has been online for quite some time: etc etc... The coil itself is what matters, so that is something you need to look for, as I have seen people change the color of the base, to match the chassis or the body, and put a harder/softer spring. We need a proper 2021 test of all the springs available, though

    [MOC] REXX Truck 1:15

    Can you determine is it because of the sand, or the pressure/friction, or both?

    [MOC] REXX Truck 1:15

    Truly marvelous machine, and an equally impressive Lego model. Just to make it effortlessly move like that is a feat itself! Will be frontpaged later today, together with a small title to your account.
  12. You can find leaks online. No official ones yet. If there were new pictures, they would be posted.
  13. I like it too, and have built quite a few large scale working models, but would probably stop at 1:14, max 1:13 scale, where it is starting to get too big for its own good :) Hope you will pull this one through, and ofc, would love to see the trailer, too. Good luck.
  14. I toyed with the idea to build this, just a bus version, in system bricks: Anyway, would like to see how your build progresses. Why this scale? 1:11 is pretty huge for an 18 meter truck. If you are planning to build a trailer, and you have made sketches with it, the final length will be around 1.6 meters...200 studs?
