Hi there! Cant stop with building yotas. Here is my next one. Based on red FJ40 posted earlier, but chassis was modified. The most visible change is increased wheelbase. Beside that: another rear suspension with 4 links+ panhard, 2 speed gearbox. Wider axles installed now with bigger ground clearance under front axle. Roof is convertible as in FJ40. Place for aux motors is free and waiting. And now the most interesting part of process started: Brainstorming extra functions... And I've also made 1 step forward to construction machines: This MOC have yellow pieces.... lets see what I can do with that:) your comments can help me;) UPDATED AFTER FINISHING MOC BUILD: Here is Toyota FJ45 pickup with snow plow attachment. Truck is based on early FJ40 model. Difference is in wheelbase, rear axle and gearbox. Features: • All time 4x4 transmission • 2-speed manual gearbox (high/low ratio) • Live axles suspension with 2 link + panhard rod at each • Openable doors with locks, bonnet, bed door • Convertible roof • Detailed saloon • Customs stickers • FJ45 custome Sbrick control profile was designed at designer.sbrick.com • John Deere color scheme Motorized functions: • Propulsion: XL-motor • Steering: Servo-motor • Winch/Plow elevation: M-motor • Snow plow tilt left/right: M-motor Powered by LiPo battery block thru Smart Brick final release unit (sbrick.com) + Additional plow PF LED-lights Plow is elevated by winch. This scheme is popular in cheap and simple snow plows. Tilt in such model usually manually customized or use hydraulics. I used lever-push mechanism to tilt left/right. Plow can be dropped easily and you can use winch as regular. more pictures http://www.bricksafe...m8/FJ45snowplow Video EPISODE 1: Test drive
Hello, Did not planned to take part in Mini, but idea was born in 1 evening after playing with 42001 set , which was built for my 4 years old son. As for 42001 - great idea of interchangeable bodies on simple frame. I am wondering why LEGO did not ask communities to do a contest like with 9398's chassis. But both A and B bodies of this set are ugly. I understand part limit for this cheap set for beginners, but they are ugly - thats fact) So, after some trying with 42001's chassis I have to make it longer, but main idea of rubber band suspension was saved. First version was built in ldd Functions: - suspension - openable doors and bonnet - detachable hard top And here is first real prototypes. This WIP, not final version. May be this MOC is a bad idea, that was born in the head of toyota fan:))) Anyways, glad to listen your critics and advices.
