  1. [WIP][MOC] Jeep Renegade

    Hi, @Jeroen Ottens, Thanks for your advice as always I think so. OK, now, I need to BL some more 3x3 dishes #3 connector is used to keep the structure strong. But yes, you are right, they do look a bit too much inwards. I'll try to use some beams to form a triangle structure with less inwards instead. Of course, some room for seats will be sacrificed though. Thank you!
  2. [WIP] Dodge Monaco

    I like the front look of it very much. Keep up the excellent work!
  3. [WIP][MOC] Jeep Renegade

    Some more updates: The rear end still needs to be improved, it's too bulky right now. I enlarged the head lights. Don't have the 3x3 dish in black yet, do you think it will look better with black dishes? Another round of checking the fidelity: Hope you like them.
  4. [WIP][MOC] Jeep Renegade

    Hi, all, long time no update. Lost the idea and passion when building the rear end of the car for a while. These are some pic taken about one month ago. There are many updates recently and I'll put more pics soon. Still, tail gate, roof, seats, dashboard are things left to be done. Also, front bumper, rear bumper, rear wheel arc need some more iterations...
  5. [WIP][MOC] Jeep Renegade

    Hi, yes, I have and will show them here soon. The progress is very slow recently, since I had little time to build it. Anyway, please stay tuned. Also, looking forward to see your version.
  6. [WIP][MOC] Jeep Renegade

    Thanks everyone for your comments. The McPherson strut and the whole front suspension each took about 5 times to end like what it looks like in the photos. The rear end where connects to the body still needs some reinforcement now. Thanks and advice taken!

    Thanks, and blame that on Jeep!
  8. [WIP][MOC] Jeep Renegade

    Hi, Jeroen, Thanks for all the good questions! The axle above has some contact with the lowest 3 rounds of spring. It has little impact to the compression of the spring I think. For the upper rotation point of front suspension, yes, they should have aligned to the lower ball joint. It works thanks to the play of the part. The upper part of the suspension has some back and forth move during turning, I'll try to find a better pivot point if possible.
  9. Hi, this is my current WIP project, a jeep renegade. The goal is to make a mid size MOC which will use 62.4mm tires. The setup will be: Driven by 2L motors; Steering by servo motors; AWD; McPherson front suspension and multi-link rear suspension; I have been working on it for 2 months and here is the progress so far: Front axle: The whole car is supposed to be 19 studs wide and the lower arm ball joint distance needs to be 13 studs wide. The narrow width constraint makes it hard to put a normal differential in. So I chose to drive each side of wheels with one motor. I don't want hard coupe the two motors so a pair of 12:20 gears are used between motor and wheel. I have a little concern of the increased gear ratio as the weight of the whole car keeps increasing everyday... A compact built McPherson front suspension is used, the custom hub is small enough to be put most of it into the wheel. Combining with the king pin inclination, the suspension setup has a small scrub radius and can be fit in a compact wheel arc like real cars. There is no caster angle, no Ackermann steering. Also I failed to put the steering link behind the wheel hub since there is the 20 teeth driving gear. What's more, there is no room to put a typical inline 4 cylinder engine. I think I may use some fake cover in front of the servo motor to represent to engine bay in the end. Rear axle: The rear wheel hub has a very similar setup with the front. Uni-body: Like my previous MINI countryman MOC, the car has a uni-body setup like the real one. This time, thanks to the smaller size, the body is more stronger that the MINI's. It will have structural A pillar and C pillar. They are probably the most difficult things for me to build in the whole car. Front end: In fact, the motivation of the MOC is the idea of the face building. I tried to build a 75th anniversary edition here. All the things that I have so far: The size of tail light is little too big and it won't light up as the head light. Last but not least: As part of the iteration building process, another version is being built at the same time: The color scheme will be like this, of course, I need some more orange pieces... More pics are at: http://bricksafe.com/pages/falconluan/jeep-renegade Hope you like it and looking forward to your feedback. Thanks for watching
  10. [MOCs] Pickup & Hatchback

    Take your time please and it's always good to hear MOCs are getting perfected. Besides, there are still quite a few of your MOCs on my waiting to build list. PS: Echo that your new Jeep is amazing! Really like the balance between looking and function you have achieved on all your MOCs!
  11. Here is my re-colored version of 42066. I tried to make it look like the paint job of VF-84/VFA-103, hope you like it.
  12. Another master piece from you! I really like how you captured the shape of the car, almost every detail, it's just a pleasure to look at it. Not a big fan of your M4 DTM's door and backend, cuz I think they are a liitle too "bulky". But for this one, it's just PERFECT!
  13. [WIP] F14A Tomcat

    wow! It's very promising. For the color, I vote for a white one with some red, or a medium blue one.
  14. And if Sariel would like bother to buy them...
  15. As for the crude looking of the truck, I think it will look better if there is a 5L white beam behind the door underside the L beam. Judging from the video, adding them will not affect the steering of the trailer.
