  1. After three months of iterating upon its design in LDD, 111.34 Australian dollars and half an hour of building, my McLaren F1 is complete! The total number of parts is approximately individual 165 pieces (this includes wheels and tyres being counted as separate parts), and two of the main body pieces (leading up to the rear wheel arches) come from a 130 dollar LEGO set. There is not an angle that the McLaren F1 has that isn't iconic. From its rounded, short rear-end and taillights to its slim front nose, the car's entire design philosophy was based solely on how light its designers could get it to be - and even then, they weren't happy. What supercar is complete without some rich guy in his freshly-pressed (and very plasticy, in this case) suit and suitcase? It fits a minifigure! Barely. LDD likes to assume you can phase parts together, so while I was able to add a minifigure and let it sit comfortably in LDD, I'm forced to remove the minifigure's hair/hat/etc for it to fit in real life. To say it's a tight squeeze is an understatement. I saved the best for last, so, of course, what McLaren F1 would be complete without a "Longtail"? Images are hosted on MOC-Pages, and will be used in my page when it goes live: http://www.moc-pages.../moc.php/429852 Stores pilfered to construct this MOC: SwissBrickPlanet 2AM Brick Store BrickComplete AFOL Supply WLWYB Thanks for the excellent prices & parts!

    [MOC] Herald of Scales

    This MOC began with possible uses of Friends dress pieces. The became skirt on larger figure. Use of short black chain pieces defined the "Ancient Eguptian" theme of the character. I also experimented with some unusual colour combinations, and I'm very happy with the result. She has a seremonial Scales sceptre, balancing a sword and a bread. More photos & talk on Cyclopic Bricks.
  3. The Fiat Panda is an Italian utility car created for all needs. It's known for its simplicity but above all for its ability to do almost everything. The 4x4 version, despite the 50 hp, is capable of climbing on various types of terrain, in fact it is also used for trials (just change the wheels). I wanted to create it in a small offroad version. The design is quite similar to the real model even if with some difference like the roof. I added a front bumper with 2 PF Lights, very useful for night rides, and a winch (you can see how it works at the end of the video). 1 PF L Motor for propulsion with a 2 speed gearbox and a 4x4 transmission without differential (I added a second reinforcement gear in the rear axle). The gearbox is compact and strong enough and the winch system is connected to it. The total gear ratio is: First Gear 1:3.33; Second Gear 1:1.67. Pendular suspension for good stability on rough terrain, even if the model is not high enough to work properly :(. The rear opening hatch and the small trailer are good for transporting small loads. The old model was very squarish and very low so I had to revise it more carefully.

  5. Here is a new moc presented at a recent lego fan show. Builder, my friend Fabrizio Panini. The work required about three years of design and installation. The number of pieces used is about 170,000 pieces (of which 4,000 are trans-yellow only). Many moving parts. 10 XL motors and 10 custom LED cards were used. We do not know the total weight but we used about 15 kg of Technic pieces. I hope this sharing likes you. I will soon upload more videos on the channel. Good Buildings at All!

    Battle of Crait

    Hey Guys! I want to show you my newest MOC. It was displayed at the Comic Con Germany last weekend. As you can see it shows the battle of Crait. I decided to use my favorite scale, the MICROFIGHTERS scale.

  7. This is a model based on Draez's model. I came across his brickshelf folder sometime in 2006. As soon as I saw the available LDR files I knew I had to build the model. What ensued was my first and only large scale lego project. I learnt the basics of ldraw to make out the construction and found a lot of clipping sections and parts that I did not have access to, so I changed quite a few things internally both to substitute parts and improve stability while still trying to maintain the shaping. About a year later I was done with model and since 2008 the strike freedom has stood on my shelf. Its missing 4 of its 8 dragoon and the colour scheme makes no sense but I'm quite proud of it. I'll be moving this year, so I thought that I'd take a few photos and share them before I packing it.
  8. It's sonic... The Doctor (Doctor Who) Hello Eurobricks again! Let me introduce my new MOC related to Warhammer 40000 universe - the battle between the Aeldari and the Chaos Sonic Dreadnought Clamorion: The photos of this work are stored in my Flickr album. Follow me if you liked the MOC. The High Farseer of Ermyaris (the character from my Xenoarchaeologist photo stories) was exiled from his own craftworld for friendship with inferior human species and joined Ynnari - the new Aeldari movement dedicated to summoning of Ynnead, the god of the dead who can destroy dark god Slaanesh. The Farseer was looking for the fifth and last of the Crone Swords, powerful weapons which can bring Ynnead to the mortal world. And the treads of fate brought him to a planet in the Eye of Terror known as Atherakhia. There, among the warp-mutated plants and the white ruins of ancient Aeldari Empire, the Farseer and his loyal warriors tried to find this crucial artifact, not willing to stay in that Chaos-infested world for long. But soon he was ambushed by Chaos Space Marines from Clamorion the Yeller's warband. They wanted to slay the Aeldari to please their twisted patron, Slaanesh... The full view of the MOC: It consists of three parts: Clamorion the Sonic Dreadnought, the Noise Marine maxifigure and the ancient Aeldari ruins in a death world where the battle occurred. The main character - Clamorion the Yeller, the Sonic Dreadnought of Slaanesh: 10000 years ago Clamorion was a skillful warrior from the Emperor's Children Legion of human Space Marines. Later he fell to Chaos with his fellow battle-brothers and pledged to Slaanesh, the dark god of forbidden pleasures who killed the majority of Aeldari race. Due to his great martial skills, he was among the first who held the Kakophoni, the prototypes of modern Emperor's Children sonic weaponry. But during the Isstvan V Drop Site Massacre Clamorion was betrayed by Lord Commander Eidolon out of jealousy and grievously wounded by his orders. Then, he was imprisoned in a Dreadnought sarcophagus, and his life was prolonged by advanced life support systems. For Clamorion, his fate was worse than death. He was stripped of his feelings and could no more hear the magnificent sounds of is sonic weapons and enjoy the screams of his enemies. He literally became a slave to Eidolon and other non-crippled marines. Clamorion was locked in a hangar and the Emperor's Children released him during important battles, only to imprison him again. Moreover, the Warp slowly began mutating and twisting his body, and though he didn't infuse with his sarcophagus, becoming a Helbrute, his eyes were covered by flesh and his mouth became very big and able to make sinister screams. Hopefully, Clamorion's slavery didn't last for long. He managed to escape from the spaceship where he was held. And after the Horus Heresy, this maddened Dreadnought assembled a warband of Chaos Space Marines from Emperor's Children who didn't want to serve Eidolon and other commanders. Now Clamorion lives only for two purposes - to avenge those who betrayed him and to please Slaanesh, hoping to return his feelings... Clamorion is a standard Ferrum Infernus-pattern Dreadnought painted black and pink - these are colors of post-Heresy Emperor's Children: The prototype of this MOC is an old Forge World Sonic Dreadnought: Thankfully, Clamorion's flesh didn't grow into the adamantium sarcophagus. Only his large mouth protrudes from his helmet, the mouth that yells inhuman screams during battles: Clamorion's shoulders are decorated with shining grids and the Mark of Slaanesh. There are the heavy flamer and the sensors which help him to navigate in battle, under his bulky, boxy body. His right arm has a twin blastmaster: It is a heavy variant of a standard Noise Marine sonic blaster and a weapon which creates horrific sonic waves that can rip internal organs. Two barrels of the blastmaster: For close combat Clamorion uses a power weapon in his left arm: His arms are very mobile: On his roof, smoke launchers (in the middle) and doom sirens (on the sides) are placed: The doom sirens amplify Clamorion's terrible voice, making it really deadly for enemies. On his back the engine is placed: Unlike the original Warhammer 40000 model, Clamorion has only two exhaust pipes, but they are chrome! The chains replace short wires and suit the aesthetics of Chaos and Slaanesh well. The Dreadnought stands on mighty hydraulic legs: Some pistons can be seen from behind: The Dreadnought can make some (anti)heroic poses: The chrome is shining (it's not CGI): Clamorion leads his own warband of Noise Marines. Since the Dreadnought was intended to be true-scale, and the Space Marines are taller than an average human or Aeldari, I decided to make a Noise Marine maxifigure: The Noise Marine holds a sonic blaster. The chain is a "wire" connecting the weapon with the marine's pauldron. The Noise Marines miniatures made by Games Workshop: Height comparison - an Aeldari, a Noise Marine and a Dreadnought: The side view of the Noise Marine: He wears an iconic backpack that powers servo-drives of his power armour: On a top of the backpack there are doom sirens like those on Dreadnought's roof. The Noise Marine without his weapon: This particular Noise Marine is called Nefaros and joined Clamorion's warband after the betrayal of other Emperor's Children. The Aeldari of Craftworld Ermyaris are represented by traditional minifigures. From left to right: Howling Banshees Exarch Eyla, the Farseer (he haven't been using his name for a long time), his Gyrinx (a psychic cat familiar) Murzinx and Ranger Moyaz: They all are characters from Xenoarchaeologist stories. Eyla is equipped with canon Banshee Mask which works very much like Slaaneshi doom sirens and armed with power sword of deceased Autarch Erestril and a shuriken pistol. The Farseer holds a Singing Spear and a shuriken pistol too. Ranger Moyaz prefers his sniper long-rifle. The same characters, albeit Eyla doesn't wear her helmet: The ruins where the battle took place: The word Atherakhia means destruction in Aeldari language and suits this forsaken world very well. The millennia spent in Warp changed forever its nature, and plants and animals became weird and deadly. And among that colorful ruins, the inlets of white ancient Aeldari ruins are scattereed, and in these ruins the Farseer was looking the lost Crone Sword. This part of the MOC was inspired by the piece of terrain produced by Games Workshop: The sculpture made like an Aedari rune towers over the ruins: Once majestic buildings are now destroyed: The green-and-red grass is inhabited by deadly spiders and other dangerous animals: The back view of the ruins: The review of the MOC is over, and here is a small story. The Farseer, Eyla and Moyaz walked carefully in the ruins, attempting to find clues leading to the Crone Sword: Danger found them very quickly - the Aeldari were ambushed by Chaos Space Marines. "I WILL BRING YOUR SOULS TO SLAANESH!!! RRRRRRRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!" The Aeldari engaged in battle with the servants of their mortal enemy. The Farseer clashed with Sonic Dreadnoight Clamorion, and Exarch Eyla fought with Noise Marine Nefaros: The Farseer distracted the Dreadnought, simultaneously guarding his fellow Aeldari from sonic weapons with psychic powers: Moyaz took cover in ruins, aiming the Dreadnought's vulnerable parts: Eyla fought Nefaros in close combat, not allowing him to use his sonic blaster: And Clamorion activated his heavy flamer but the Farseer and Murzinx evaded his flames: And suddenly the Dreadnought impaled the Farseer in his chest: "BEHOLD, SLAANESH!!! I OFFER YOUR A SACRIFICE!!!!!" The Farseer was dead. He fell on the ruined wraithbone square. Murzinx looked sadly at his fallen master. But soon the Farseer's head began to glow... And he appeared on a ruined wall behind Clamorion's back! The Farseer created a psychic illusion to deceive his enemy and prepared to strike with his Singing Spear and to cast Eldritch Storm! Te battle continued. Emboldened by their Farseer's "resurrection", the Aeldari stroke the Chaos Marines with renewed vigor... Thank you for watching and reading! P.S. No Hogwarts was harmed in the making of this MOC. Almost.

    [MOC] - Sci Fi-esque Tank

    It doesn´t happen very often that i build a tank or a military vehicle in general,in fact,this is my first Lego tank ever. I got the idea from finding a bunch of olive bricks that originated from the Marvel Hydra Tank and the Chima Crocodile Boat. I put them together loosely and all of a sudden it turned out as a shape for some futuristic tank or recon vehicle. I added some armoring plates on the sides,one of those ball shooting thingies as a cannon and even some sort of crude suspension,so the tank has all 6 wheels on the ground at all time.At least it didn´t have any problems crossing Mount Couch Cushion or Office Desk Plains. Hope you guys like it,comments are always welcome. IMG_20180630_150541_1 IMG_20180630_150558 Rotating turret, Bionicle Ball Shooter and simple suspension.

    LEGO Boost Train

    A fellow LUG member loaned me a LEGO Boost motor hub, motor and color sensor to play around for a few days. I thought I do something silly and make a train with it. I programmed it to play train pong. I prefer my Arduino Power Function version. Unlike the Boost App, it doesn't need location services turned on or else it won't work. Why is that?
  11. Yet another LEGO TIE Fighter. How far can this classic design be pushed? How many ways are there to build an eye sandwitched by hexagonal solar panels? Is there a perfect design already? This is where beauty of LEGO as form of modelling strikes with full power, as answers to these questions are: Very far, infinite ways, and no, there is no perfect design available and never will be. In 2014 I have built this: It worked, and I think for 2014 and what was available back then, it was pretty good. It had obvious flaw though: no space for a minifigure, and it was also a little too small in scale. I was limited mostly by the fact there were no proper cockpit pieces, and my attempt with literally the only other one was... not spectacular, not to mention it needed painting with A LOT patience required. The new model takes advantage of this cockpit piece, which allowed me to push that original 2014 design further. I know, I am late to the party, years - literally - behind other designers of great TIE models, like Bricks Feeder or Rebel Builder, yet I hope I can bring something new into the T/F building scene. Originally I thought I would just stretch the build here and there but no, heheh, no way. Literally the only unchanged parts are the eight quarter (or one-eighter?) dome pieces, which are to me still the only way to have smooth and roughly spherical design without holes all around. Unfortunately when we look at a closeup of a real movie-filming model of the T/F we see how far are we from true modelling but I say we're collectively inching towards it pretty nicely. I have said this plenty of times but original designers of TIE Fighters really did all they could to make them unbuildable properly, naturally unknowingly - who would think adult guys 30 years in the future would try to recreate the design using perhaps the weirdest medium available?. The T/F is just a sphere, two struts and two flat hexes. Except: 6-diameter central cokcpit piece would require a 9-diameter ball, minifig-scaled TIE would require an 8-diameter ball and don't even get me started on sources for TIEs dimensions. If you think that Illustrated Guide To Star Wars vehicles is helpful, well, not much. I dare to say this book did awfully lot of harm to LEGO Star Wars MOCing scene. So is my TIE perfect? No, not yet. I promise though, I did all I could to make it as good as possible, with no compromises made. And this time it houses a minifig! The design is super sturdy to my standards, nicely swooshable - for a reason, but I will get to that later. Naturally having a T/F built opens a way towards the Interceptor, which for me is among the best looking spaceship designs in any sci-fi. While the core design is similar, the ball has some differences, mostly to accomodate longer struts. This is because LEGO curiously didn't develop 2x9 plates and for once I was in a situation where I can't really replace 2x9 plate with anything without compromising structural integrity. Having that solved I went onto the wing design and OH GOD INTERNET WHAT HAVE YOU DONE. If anyone knows angle on the panels and can prove it, gets a free beer. With shipping. Because the wings are angled in all dimensions, good luck guessing proper values from photos. Because of the IGTSWV book, half of the models (and I don't even mean LEGO models) existing are wrong. And then because of SW animated series, the other half of the models are also wrong... ...so my source of reference was this: Then after having all that done, I experienced another unexpected problem: The ship is top-heavy and won't stand straight. I added tiny legs on the bottom edges of wings which help a bit, and because the design is quite sturdy, the T/I requires no stand. There you have it. Yet another T/F and T/I. I hope you like the designs and I hope I managed to introduce something new to the very competitive scene. Enjoy! ...but wait, there is more! I would not build these models if not a commission request from BrickVault: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCrhb3SP2lZBgguLHIWWuHOQ Originally it was meant to be just a few TIE models based on the 2014 design I had, just LDD files, but over time we developed a much more interesting designs and... instructions for each of them! The instructions are paid and please understand, it took weeks to develop them, error-proof, make the experience enjoyable and builds sturdy enough to be handled easily. Normally I do not make instructions, as I prefer to build with real bricks than to do electronic designs. The instructions are designed to have dozens of simple to follow steps with just few pieces per step, have submodels where needed, parts list for each step and a total bill of parts at the beginning. Additionally, in few places, there are notes to watch out for some particular details. I can fully understand now what LEGO designers go through and I can imagine amount of effort required for making instructions for larger and more complicated designs. I am pretty sure it took more time to design instructions for the recent UCS Millennium Falcon than to design the model itself. Thanks for watching and Happy New Year!
  12. Hi, This is my latest attempt at building offroad car. Wrangler Trophy by Horcik Designs, on Flickr JEEP Wrangler Expedition by Horcik Designs, on Flickr Introduction and Motivation I built it for the Kostky.org TROPHY, adventurous event and AFOL meeting that is inspired by Camel Trophy series, and was held by Kostky.org (CZ+SK LUG) at 5th August 2017 for the very first time. It was awesome day, and I hope that there will be more. Here is the the official video from the event. There were really great cars there. The car itself The car was built to fit the rules of the competition. That means reserve "fuel" in the car during whole race before refuelling, remote control (no wire connection between truck and controller, S-bricks allowed) and representative appearance. So I decieded to go with the force, and installed two XL motors for the drive, geared down in 3:5 ratio, and two L motors, each for the winch (1:8) and steering (mini LA). I also reduced gearing to the minimum, due to minimal energy-consumption. (I nearly did the whole race to single Li-Po BB) The car is not perfect, it is very heavy (approx. 1500g), so it does not allow to use CV joints in the front axle for smooth wheel rotation. They managed to withstand the race, but in the finish (before the big uphill from the first video) they were strongly damaged, mostly because of big steering angle. Well, I hope that the video will say enough, if you have any questions, feel free to ask me. :) Photos: JEEP Wrangler Expedition by Horcik Designs, on Flickr JEEP Wrangler Expedition by Horcik Designs, on Flickr JEEP Wrangler Expedition by Horcik Designs, on Flickr JEEP Wrangler Expedition by Horcik Designs, on Flickr JEEP Wrangler Expedition by Horcik Designs, on Flickr
  13. I have not seen a topic on this, so if there is, please do move or merge with an established topic. Which AFOL community builders' work do you like or inspire you for your own projects/creations? For me, there are many, but my two top favorites are JonHall18 and Vince Toulouse on Flickr. I think they both are the best builders in the Dieselpunk and Sky-fi genres (both favorites of mine), and Vincent's artistry with Lego parts make unique and fantastic art deco-esq vehicular craft. https://www.flickr.com/photos/vince_toulouse/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/25163007@N07
  14. I present to you the backbone of the Rebel Alliance – the GR-75 Rebel Transport: After having tweaked and tweaked my last MOC (Medical Frigate) and built a fleet of fighters and smaller ships for it, I wanted to build something bigger - but in the same scale. I chose the beautiful, organic looking 90-meters long, Rebel Transport. The Medical Frigate can be seen here: http://www.eurobrick...pic=129607&st=0 http://www.eurobrick...howtopic=131170 The Transport is the workhorse of the Rebel alliance, transporting equipment from base to base. The ship can house dozens of odd sized containers kept in place by strong magnetic locks. The Transport, like so many other Rebel ships, have a very organic and beat up look – getting this look right was the biggest challenge when designing the moc. The scale of the model is 1: 250 meaning it is built at 2 meters per stud. Thus the Transport is 45 studs long. Building the most detailed 45 stud version of the ship was my main goal. Based on pictures of the movie model I calculated the width and curvature of the ship – I fired up LDD and began building. What I ended up with was an 850+ brick model made up of 150+ brick types: The Transport takes flight! Front view. In this picture the curvature of the ship is very pronounced. To my luck the range of curved bricks fit perfectly with curvature of the ship. When placed along a central spine they further underline the lines the Transport has across the hull. Don’t mind the small hole in the front – one of the hinges is slightly too bent. Top view. I have mostly used white 1 x 4 curved slopes to get the proper shape. However, to get the dirty, rugged look of the ship, I have mixed in a number of different colors and other curved slopes. The Cargo. The GR-75 can carry a LOT of containers. Creating this part of the ship was kind of a chore but also very fun. At this scale I had just enough resolution to attempt recreating every single cargo container and detail from the studio model. I found a picture of the model showing the bottom up and began mapping every container pipe and greeble I could. I recreated it all with bricks of matching colors, pipes, taps and odd shaped pieces. The end result matches the haphazard stacking of the studio model – I’m glad I put the magnetic locks in place… :) Containers from the back. As with the Medical Frigate, one of the challenges was creating a sturdy non-interfering stand. With this ship one of the stands is placed in the middle of the containers. However I did not want to sacrifice even a single compartment so I found a workaround using transparent wall pieces. The slim piece is fitted snugly in between a number of containers and is just connected via two studs – but it seems to hold :) Container close up. They are all there :) Starboard profile view. This angle reveals the slight sloping of the hull towards the rear end of the ship. The curving effect was achieved by a number of plate hinges and four sections with slightly different angles. Port profile view. The profile views show the gap between the top and bottom hull plates. This gap has a jagged effect on the studio model – conveyed here by 1 x 1 and 1 x 2 plates. Side detail. Yes, there is actually detailing in the narrow gap between the hull plates. Again, the greebling is based on looking at the studio model – and on what was possible in such a small area :) Engine view. As always, one of my favorite parts of a ship. Getting all the engines to fit in there was a bit of a challenge. Rear view. As the Transport flies out of focus the uneven surface is again evident. The Transport has a very small command/deflector module - the little thing on top of the spine. To be in scale this module should actually be about half a stud smaller – even smaller than a B-wing cockpit section. However, the 2,5 stud test I did, did not look very good :) Lastly a scale comparison with the Medical Frigate – and the rest of the rebel fleet :) Thanks to all the supporters of the Medical Frigate project, you have helped make this model possible! Everyone can get the LDD for the Rebel Transport here: https://www.dropbox..../GR-75.lxf?dl=0 Enjoy and please comment!

    Space Police 3 Hoverbike

    This is an upgrade to the bike we get in "Squidman's Escape." I probably went overboard but I don't think the Space Police will mind. •Lots of fiddly bits! •Multi-function scanner conveniently located within arm's reach •Remove the nose cap to reveal a cannon As a new habit, I tagged this on Flickr with "52035", which is the part number for the motorcycle body used here. Hopefully anyone else who is looking for ideas on what to make with this part will find this topic and get inspired. I hope you tag your own posts as well!

    Justice League Flying Fox Moc/Mod

    After seeing images of the Flying Fox, as seen in the upcoming Justice League film, I was very excited to see what Lego's rendition of it would look like. Sadly, I was somewhat disappointed. The build is sturdy, which is a great thing, however, it was also quite ugly and inaccurate. I picked the set up after my birthday, and was pleasantly surprised. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Steppenwolf's head and torso molds are accurate and intricately detailed, and the Flying Fox itself was surprisingly fun to build. As soon as I built it, I knew I would modify it. I have already modified the Batmobile and Steppenwolf, and they look great. So, I would like advice for the Flying Fox. I know there aren't many pictures of it, but the overall design has been revealed. Hopefully we will get some great shots of it during the movie, but we do have a few images. So, here's what I want to build: About 1.5 to 2 times bigger than the original set A spacious and large interior, with room for the Batmobile and a command center for the League A lever-activated feature (ideally using a rubber band) that will launch the Batmobile out of the Fox A small 2nd floor command center that hangs above the Batmobile, with computers and a chair Front and back hatches that can open easily, but can be held in place A cockpit that opens up with room for most of the League Wings (see below) with spring loaded shooters, and large engines Lots of angles to make it look interesting I have an excess amount of black pieces, so I don't have many limitations for building. Any suggestions would be amazing! Thanks for your time!

    60154 + 4564 = 37?

    First off, I would like to say that, no, I am not terrible at maths! All shall be explained! (Sorry, this may be quite a lot of reading!) The Back Story: First aspect: Some weeks ago, I was having a general look for sets that might be of interest to me. I stumbled upon a very good deal on the Lego City Bus Station (Set no. 60154). I decided in a spur of the moment purchase to pick up 2 sets, with no real plan… That’s what sowed the seed! Second aspect: In the not so distant past, I had purchased a huge Lego haul from eBay containing many train set items and accessories. In amongst this, was an incomplete copy of the Lego Freight Rail Runner (Set no. 4564) – (maybe 80% complete) – at the time I didn’t really know what to do with it. Over time I harvested the 9V motor, wheels, couplings, bogie plates, wagon parts and straight track – basically all the good stuff! Now, I’m a big fan of seeing people doing set combining! I have never seen anyone attempt something like this! (Correct me if I’m wrong!) The Hypothesis: “Is it feasible to make a decent looking locomotive of any kind, combining Sets 60154 and 4564? – Using minimal significant other parts, but in cases where necessary only using parts I currently have, and not resorting to ordering things. The locomotive should ideally use Power Functions with 2 motors, lights are not necessary. Also, the finished model should be sturdy, strong, and able to be played with by children.” Answer, Was It Possible? Yes, and in my opinion, it turned out rather well. What I attempted to build was a massively simplified Class 37, with much artistic licence! Here is the finished product: Thus, the idea for “60154 + 4564 = 37?” was born! What do you think? Any questions, thoughts, or criticism will be much appreciated. Regards, James :)
  20. Hello! I would like to present my first MOC, which i was tempted to build since a while. I was always more a "fan" of Class 1 buggies ( https://en.wikipedia...i/SCORE_Class_1 ) over Baja trucks, and I also couldn't find any LEGO versions of them, so i decided to build... and failed, built again, and failed..., built again, and so on... The long travel independent suspension with driving was really a challange, finally I found a solution, which works... kinda. I reached my goal, to make this thing move, but I must admit, the driving performance is poor, as the suspension arms are still not rigid enough, so the rear wheels start to lean. It moves, but not what i would call: clear run. Still, i thought, maybe it is worth to share, because the rest of the car is OK. I also would like to inspire others to build such MOCs, i would be happy to see more (and better performing) unlimited buggies! Building instruction (V3): here And now... the pictures (edit: no more video will be made, lack of patience and knowledge) - fixed: EDIT: as updated version is available, old pics and video removed. Pre version pics added. V0 - sketch model: V1 model with XL motors - not really good performance... V2 model with L-motors: Update: V3 is ready - see page 2. A clever patch by @Didumos69 for the rear swingarms, now they can not disconnect at all!
  21. Hey everyone, this is my first thread on here! The LEGO bug recently bit me to the point I did a forum search for topics about self printed stickers but could not find one. So are there any good resources/tips on that? Are there Photoshop sheets to print for common brick/plate sizes? I saw a Youtube video of .svg files for brick borders and that gets picked up by a professional cutting machine? Are most "normal" folks using common paper and then wrapping that with Tesa tape top and doublesided tape bottom or are there other techniques? If sticker paper is used, are there most often used brands? what about transparent ones? (I own a Samsung color laser printer, pretty cheap model but it does its job) Also are there sites that offer sticker clipart from already existing sets? Thanks for any pointers!
  22. When the 'So long for sunny days'-challenge on Lowlug was announced, I immediately thought about combining LEGO's currently most populair theme with a slew of sets that, in the Netherlands at least, are being sold on the secondhand market for less than a few cents and thus wasn't so popular after all by the majority. A combination Brickheadz-Bionicle, so to speak. As soon as I got that idea down, I remembered an old promotional video from 2001 that had the Toa Mata Tahu surfing over lava and molten rocks inside a volcano, which I wanted to recreate. So I grabbed some bricks, order a lot of trans-orange parts from Bricklink and after 2 months of building, I now proudly present my MOC: Because I had to combine Bionicle with Brickheadz, the official head of Tahu had to be replaced by a brickbuild Brickheadz-ified version. And as cherry on top, I constructed a fitting mask that is only attached to the head by 1 stud. And of course I wanted the lava, just like in the real world, to glow. Fortunately I could borrow 50 trans-orange Light Stax 2x4 bricks from a fellow Lowlug-member, all of which I built into this model. And let me say, in real life, the lighting effects are even more astounding. You can view a full set of photos of this moc on my Brickshelf. And don't forget to like and share this MOC on Facebook.
  23. Hi everyone I'm a regular on Eurobricks but this is the first time I've posted anything in the digital building forums. I've recently started to design MOC's using Lego Digital Designer and this is my first creation... All the images were rendered using Blue render which I like because it's fairly fast and incredibly easy to use. I was quite happy with these images but then I saw a few other renders that people have created online and am blown away by the quality of them. Some of them are so good that it's hard to tell they aren't built from real bricks. Can anyone suggest to me, the best software or method of rendering images from models created in LDD. I've tried POV Ray but am not that impressed with the results. Even in top quality the renders seem to have a fake looking sheen that makes them look artificial and almost as if they've been shrink wrapped in plastic. It also takes hours to render the images on my PC using POV Ray. I've been pouring over other threads in the forum and have read a lot about people using Blender. As far as I can tell though the only way of getting LDD models to open in Blender is by converting them to LDraw files first. When I tried this though it messes up a lot of the bricks in my model. Similarly I tried importing them in to Mecabricks but this messes up any bricks that have printed elements on them. Does anyone know of another way of getting LDD files in to Blender directly without it messing up the models? From what I've seen, Bluerender seems to be the most user friendly option for creating renders. I read somewhere on here that a "Sunflow" patch had been created for Bluerender which gave a more realistic result with better detail and the Lego logo on each stud. When I followed the link to download this though it redirected me to a different site, so I assume this patch has since been removed. So I'd be very grateful if anyone could suggest anything I can do to make my renders look more realistic or suggest any other software or methods that might give a better result. Thanks!

  25. Hi all, Here is an attempt at building a new forklift. My previous one used the TLG design for the boom. This time i decided to build my own. Why? Just because the TLG boom had a big inner central mecha that makes impossible for the driver to look in front of him... I solved this by using a string based mechanics to lift the first stage of the mast. The second stage is also indirectly lift by the first one's movement. The whole arm has a tilting mechanism: The model has a propulsion base on one medium size motor, a tilting mechanism based on the same one. The direction is made with a servoand the main lifting use also a medium size motor. At all stage, the power is enough. Some other pictures: Front view. the driver just can look in front of him. Good idea no? Maximun size of the full open mast The model has drive and steering. Led light are also at party. The steering Wheel is custom made using technic disk and a Polly tire I hope you'll like it. Steph
