  1. Hello Community, I want to share a cool idea and model I came up with - using relative new 28T gears as sprockets for a tracked vehicle. When I first saw the inventory for the new 42168 John Deere 9700 Forage Harvester, I was impressed on how many gears are packed inside this small model so I decided to use as much as possible of them for a tracked Tractor. But can all that gears are used as sprockets for driving small tracks? Lets find it out. The new 28T gear fits literally perfect as sprocket and thanks to the soft tooths of that bevel gear, tracks are running surprisingly smooth. Every second tooth fits inside the gaps of the track links, where the other tooths fits inside the gaps of the track part itself and so on. With such a setup it might be possible to build a tracked vehicle and I tested alot on the tracks and the sprocket setup. Available gears from the 42168 Forage Harvester are not enough, so I decided to use the yellow gears only for the visible side of the model and to use other parts provided with the set to prevent the additional tracks from slipping... The model I ended up is a John Deere 8RX Tractor as alternate build for the 42168 John Deere Forage Harvester that requires 124 additional widely used track links (part 3873). Something odd, a model that requires additional tracks and let you the tires left over for some other cool stuff. The Tractor comes with steering and a working piston engine. Only parts from donor set 42168 are needed and all functions are working even without the additional track pieces. Lets take a look how smooth the tracks are running. The model is steered with wheel from the back (shown in blue) while the rear tracks are running the piston engine (shown in green) by driving the model smoothly over rough ground. Let the piston engine run by driving the tracks or by rotating the rear sprocket manually. Some impressions: If you like what you see and want to build your own John Deere 8RX Tractor Unit, feel free to support me on rebrickable. Happy Building.
  2. Hello everyone! Almost one year passed since I've posted my very first alternate model, so I decided to make another one. With the new John Deere Skidder (42157), I bought its smaller brother as well - and the idea was born... It definitely wasn't a hauler from the beginning, my intention was to build something completely different, which just didn't go well. Building time was around 5 hours, therefore one well-spent afternoon, though I improved the coloring the next day This time I also decided to get rid of traditional white background and change my presentation a bit, hope you like it. The model features: Articulated steering with HOG behind the cabin Tilting the cargo bed About 91% of parts provided by the set were used (none of them were spares), render with leftover parts is shown below: And a 360° view (could be better, however I don't really have 17 500 hours of time to waste ): And last but not least - a short demonstration video: If anyone is interested, instructions can be found on Rebrickable. Thank you for visiting & any comments are welcome as always :)
  3. I finally broke down at bought LEGO 42136, and while it's not great, it's inexpensive and mostly green. I have never built an alternative model, so I figured this would be a good little set for me to try it out. This is the result. The articulated dumper features steering and dumping. Most of the parts from 42136 are used, with a couple left over (including spares). Dumping is manual. Steering is controlled by the HOG on the roof. Instructions are available at if you are interested. I might have to try another B-Build, as it is an interesting challenge.
  4. From Not too much is currently known to us about the 42136 set. In terms of price, the set will probably be 29.99 euros , we do not have a number of parts at the moment. We suspect that a John Deere 9R with a yellow tipping trailer could be hidden behind the set , but we are not quite sure yet. Set number: 42136 Designation: John Deere 9R Number of parts :? Release date: January 01, 2022? RRP: 29.99 euros
