  1. They call those who ride them "rednecks". But while you may ponder whether the setup like this is an overkill or not, a pickup mounted on 10' wheels is a thing to remember no matter the circumstances. Features: ► forward/reverse drive ► separately-driven L6 turbocharged Diesel engine with moving pistons and cooling fan ► steering ► differential and gearing for speed ► simplified cockpit with steering wheel and IR-receiver seats. ► opening cab doors and hood ► exhaust stack ► details such as radiator with grille, front and rear lights, bull bar and reinforced bumpers, roof rack with extra floodlights, rear view mirrors, desert safety flag and fenders 42030 C-model, uses more than 80% of set's parts (loose assumption). 42 studs long and heavy. Despite its weight and only one XL motor as means of propulsion, it has a quite decent speed - it picks up (pun intended) a huge momentum - and an impressive turning radius. Engine is separately powered by L motor. Steering is much like in a video game, where both reverse and brakes are controlled by the same button. Unsuspected bonus: by accident, the bed is perfectly shaped to hold the RC control unit which consists of two RC pilots with a standard RC-car additions. The set's M motor lies dormant, waiting to be used on some extra function I can't currently come up with. It'd be hard to craft the instructions in LDD, but I'll try one day.
  2. Hi there, Just discovered the C-Model index, and realized that I have a few creations I could add to the list... 'cause I love C models :) Here is one I did some time ago with the 42035 set. Instructions are available on rebrickable. This is a small quad, featuring a fake engine driven by the rear wheels. The rear axle is also pendular, and the steering works. Here are a few more pictures: Any comment welcome :)
  3. I took my oldest set out of closet week ago. It's Designer set 4884 - Wild Hunters. ...and started building something cute out of it. I began with boobs, continued with body, arms, head and finally legs. I wanted her to be totally naked but I had to dress her little bit as I was lacking in tan bricks. Even she is not as curvy as I would like her to be she looks good and features good posability. So let me introduce you Woman in Bikini and High Boots. Do you like her?
  4. Since C-model contest began I was thinking about building something BIG but I wasn't sure if I finish it in time. So I've built this little pull-back trike to get "plan B" and then immediatelly began working on my second alternative model out of set 9394. I wanted to be the first who rebuilds this jet plane into boat but izorn was bit faster... So my alternate is hovercraft. Its main feature is quite unique steering. It turns just pair of rudders instead of whole propeller as you can see among official hovercraft models. This is list of all functions: three wheels chassis front axle drives propeller rear axle "HOG" steering that also turns pair of rudders opening windscreen steering wheel and adjustable seat in cab This is mechanism inside - green is steering and red is drive for propeller 41 left over parts And there are few pictures from building process bellow: I began with prototype of rear axle to check steering performance. Then I built the most difficult part of model - crossing of drive and steering axles. And this was first prototype of model. More pictures
  5. All of a sudden while at work, this idea came to me and I got so interested. Objectives: Bus as 42008 C Model Good looking as much as I can include bus details as much as I can pneumatic door and baggage driven by pump compressor motorized drive as a 3rd function (what else a bus has to offer?) manual steering easily removable battery Parts: approximately 930 parts out of 1276 Build time: around 3 weeks Limitations C Model, hence no parts outside 42008 allowed 42008 presents the folloing challenges: not enough lift arms to build a floor in the passenger area managing the available quantities of Green and Red beams to build the bus body and make a good choice where green and where red goes. weak pneumatics I'm new and this is my 1st serious try, I only built 42008 before this. In general I'm satisfied by the end product. Next are things I think could be better: hiding the pneumatic hoses, got lazy at that. sliding baggage door, (couldn't figure out how to do that) more sturdy/smooth steering two doors rather than one using the white gear I may try to enhance this later (as a free MOC), but for now I will go to build some car sets to learn more about vehicle functions. I will start with 42029. Thank you for having a look. Remaining parts (around 340)
  6. Thrill of a chase or laid back touring? Here's your powerful kustom chariot. Flamboyant, sleek and fast, this street rod is a perfect machine for touring or racing. Powered by a boosted V8 engine adorned with velocity stacks, this automobile with a getaway car vibe has a dangerous stance and even more dangerous exhaust manifolds. Features: ► V8 engine with rotating pulley and velocity stacks-adorned intake manifold (no cylinders) ► rigid transmission (three Cardan joints; without differential) ► steering with working steering wheel and a HOG ► rear hinged ("suicide") door ► detailed cockpit with a steering wheel, dashboard, gear shifter and two seats ► "winged-boat-tail" design body with coupé roof, spoiler-mudguards and two straight, quadruple exhaust pipes ► details such as doubled rear wheels, fake brake discs and brakes, floodlights, rear lights, turn lights and suicide bumper 42024 C-Model

  8. Hello , I finally bring the instructions of the last alternative to 42022, the truck. Remember that the original idea is not mine, at the end of the post is the video of his creator The original video Instructions: 42022.lxf

  10. Good day! Today I would like to present my 42022 c-model - Custom Motorcycle. It features: Steering, front and rear lamps,suspesion because of some flexibility in the chassis , detailed fuel tank ,exhaust pipe , and some minor details . Foto gallery: Istructions(LDD file): Small video: Thanks for reading ,comment and rate!
  11. Hello Technic Folks! Here is the C-Model of 42030 Volvo L350F Wheel Loader. It's a telehandler, inspired by Caterpillar TH514C. General specifications: - 1520 pieces - Size: 57x21x19 cm - Weight: 1,9 Kg Motorized functions: - Drive - Four wheel counter-phase steering - Boom (Up - Down) - Tele (In - Out) Manual functions: - Bucket (Dump - Crowd) - Outriggers Other features: - Fake Four-straight engine - Engine access Some pics: Boom Side View Front Lights Engine Bucket Youtube Video: I hope You like it! Have a nice weekend!
  12. I made a C-Model out of the Customized Pickup Truck set. The details are posted here. I will add a video this weekend. Video now available.
  13. Hello Eurobrickers!!! This is my C-Model of 42008 Service truck General specifications: - 1210 pieces - Size: 35x13x17 cm - Weight: 1,18 Kg - Time for design & construction: ≈ 1 month Manual functions: - HOG steering - Crane rotation - Openable doors - Winch - Openable side walls Gearbox for operating motorized functions: - Crane raising - Outriggers - Tilting bed - Pump compressor Pneumatic functions: - Second axle wheel lift - Opening arm Little description: Initially I thought of doing a completely different front, but in the end I preferred to use the one of the main model (with minor modifications). This allowed me to save beams and axles, the latter used to implement other functions. A big problem has been to design the rotation of the crane, not so much for the system, but for the arrangement in the cabin (under the seats is quite intricate because of HOG, crane rotation and stabilizer functions). Some pics: Outriggers Crane Back View Leftover parts Hope You like it!!! Thanks again for your support! Youtube Video:
  14. Let me introduce myself and tell you something about this new topic. Some of you may know me in connection with modification of alternative model from set 8052. I modified it into truck with work platform last summer and provided you building instruction via brickshelf. It is not my only creation so I decided to share my other creations with you too. One more note before introducing my models – I am focused on building models from one set so they could be named as “unofficial alternative models”. It’s enough about me and let’s look at what I have for you now! This is truck with work platform I spoke about above. My latest creation is “telehandler” also from set 8052. Honestly it doesn’t have telescopic boom but at least it looks like it has... :) It features following functions: lifting boom via linear actuator and medium motor with gear ratio 1:3 (it is as slow as lifting container in main model) rear axle steering with eccentric control via beacon on roof of cabin – this was little puzzle because lack of bevel gears front stabilizers which are able to lift front wheels little bit above land adjustable rear mirror (I like especially that one on side of battery box)

    42032 C-Model

    This is the smallest C-Model I've built to date. It's a futuristic snow mobile made with parts from the 42032 Compact Tracked Loader. There height of the rear suspension is adjustable and it has a small 4 cylinder engine in the rear. Here are some pictures: A couple of other pictures:
  16. In anticipation of the Technic crawler crane which will be released in 2015 by Lego, here is an alternate model for the 42038 set. It's the first MOC I've built using tracks, and I quite enjoyed the process. It has 3 functions (rotating superstructure, tilting boom and hook/string) and a bogey suspension. There are a few more pictures in this blog entry. * * * Update: Instructions are now available.
  17. iam starting an other alternate for 42008. this time is the goal a dragster truck like the iconic Super boss from Tyrone Malone this is actual what i have 100_0600 von efferman auf Flickr
  18. I use only parts from lego 42029, since I only have this set at the time.It might not be perfect, but with limited parts this is the best I can made out of it. Check out the video here: If you interested to build one I got a simple photo instruction at link below: It is an easy modification, it has the same chassis as A-model but shortened. same gearing mechanism as well, but back tipping mechanism was not use.
  19. Hi! I would like to present you my TC5 competition entry: I named her The Dawnbreaker She's built out of 9392 Quad Bike and 42026 Black Champion Racer. She features independant front axle and dragged rear axle suspension, RWD by a pull-back motor, chain driven single cylinder fake engine, automatic return-to-centre steering provided by a huge caster angle (steering is done by the steering wheel in the cab) and manualy adjustable rear wing. I used all the stickers from 42026, which are the best looking stickers LEGO ever made, and none from 9392. Some more photos... I have a leftover of 54 from 343 pieces including spare parts (13 of those are chain links). I am really satisfied how it turned out and I think there won't be any more changes to it. I hope you like it as much as I do. I thank you in advance for your comment and constructive criticism. Building instructions available on, enjoy Best regards, Miha
  20. TECHNIC C-MODEL CONTEST - RESULTS Lots of people like building C-Models. Working with a limited set of parts brings out the creativity. This resulted in 46 contestants participating in this contest. A lot of cool and original entries, so as usual the voting proved to be hard. Except for the 1st place, that much is clear! Here are the results of the Eurobricks Jury! 1st Wheeled Excavator by TGBDZ Entry Topic - Discussion Topic Our new Latvian member TGBDZ came, saw and conquered! What a way to join the forum. He turned the otherwise mediocre (debatable) 8071 Bucket Truck into a great looking excavator, with lots of functions! 2nd The Dawnbreaker by MajklSpajkl Entry Topic - Discussion Topic From the moment MajklSpajkl posted his Dawn Breaker, it was clear that his entry would end up on the podium. He only had one problem...TGBDZ. Great work nonetheless! 3rd Hybrid Rocket Off-Roader by Doc_Brown Entry Topic - Discussion Topic Oops, he did it again! After a gold and silver medal, Doc_Brown is the first to collect (all) three medals. Maybe it's time to ban Doc. Traveling back and forth to the future seems like cheating Congratulations to all winners and thanks to everyone for joining this great contest I will contact the winners via PM to handle their prizes.

It has various functions, such as motorized winch, motorized hood, fake 4 cylinder in-line engine, suspension, 4-wheel drive with center differential, gearbox with two-speed, steering wheel connected to the steering and opening doors. The model is ready to IR power function: using a remote control, receiver, XL-motor, M-motor and a switch you can drive it. Here some pics The lever near the left-seat change the speed from low to high. The lever near the right-seat change the functions between winch and hood. Under the hood Under the chassis View from the ground to the fake motor. Hope You like it!

  22. (Dedicated to Grohl, the best C-Model builder Eurobricks has ever known.) Technic C-Model Contest Our last contest was dedicated to Model Team, a tricky contest to enter.

It's a contest well worth to enter since we have great prizes DESCRIPTION Build an alternate LEGO Model out of one or two existing LEGO Technic sets.

You can't use 600 parts of a 1200 part set. Since 2005 is the year I came out of my dark ages, I am also imposing a release date limit. The set(s) need to be released in the year 2005 or later. For example: Use two (different) sets: 144 parts + 186 parts = 330 parts Use a single set: 499 parts DEADLINE Deadline date is November 30th, 2014.

  23. Hi, Recently, I bought a 9393 Tractor set from a toy store near me, and I liked both the a-model and b-model very much. They have a lot of playability for a relatively small number of parts, and a nice looking color scheme. Plus, it's my highest part count set below 600, so I decided to build something out of it. At first I researched about vehicles with different sized front and rear tires to see what I can build, but in the end I decided to go with something original. Here is the first draft of what I am building: It's an off-road racer that tilts when cornering in order to change its center of gravity. Currently only the til/steer mechanism is in place, but the playability in this state is promising :) Currently I am thinking of using only 9393, but I may opt to choose one of the following sets and use parts from it for additional features/aesthetics. 42027: For the pullback motor and green parts, but I'm not sure I can use the pullback motor because of my weird rear axle configuration. 42021: For the suspension parts, but we'll see how it turns out. 42001: For the rubber bands and orange parts.
  24. My build for the contest uses sets #8068 and #42020, which have 408 and 145 pieces respectively, for a total of 553 pieces. I used 490 on the ship and 14 on the stand. Leaving 34 and 29 pieces unused. The Leftovers by CleverNiftyDude, on Flickr Major pin and axle shortage with these two sets. VTOL Heli-plane by CleverNiftyDude, on Flickr The stand,...barely stands, but I was able to get some cool banking shots,... as it slowly fell over. VTOL with Pilot by CleverNiftyDude, on Flickr Just happen to have a matching Technic Fig for scale,..Nice! Unfortunately my entry post will be pilot-less, as he is not part of either set. VTOL Cockpit by CleverNiftyDude, on Flickr A close-up of the pit, with assorted NF controls and interface. VTOL Top view by CleverNiftyDude, on Flickr Functions incude: Manual 90 deg. swivel of wings/props/landing wheels Manual tail fin rotation HOG prop spin. HOG Ratcheted rescue basket I think I'm going to try to get a few more photos before I enter it. Cheers.
