Hello everybody! This is the first MOC I present on Eurobricks. My most popular MOC yet is the 3 speed auto gearbox (https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-33711/lbrix/3-speed-auto-gearbox-overworked-version/?inventory=1#comments). But now to this gearbox: At first ask yourself this question: Which sense has a normal D-N-R gearbox in a manual technic car? It has no sense. It makes no difference if you are in the forward gear or in te reserve. But with this D-N-R gearbox it makes a difference, because if you are in the forward gear, you can not push the car backward and if you switch in the reserve gear, you can not push the car forward. If you want to build this gearbox into a technic car, you have to connect the grey connectors to the wheels and one of the black ones to the fake engine. For more information check out this MOC on rebrickable (maybe it is not approved yet): https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-47985/lbrix/alternative-d-n-r-gearbox/?inventory=1#comments No I wanted to ask you, what you think about this D-N-R gearbox? Here is an video of my gearbox:
A bit late to the party, but last Monday was the 46th Anniversary of the first Lunar Landing. 46th Anniversary of the first Lunar Landing The 46th anniversary of the first moon walk is a day that space buffs everywhere still celebrate. More than a half billion people watched the televised first moonwalk July 20, 1969, where Neil Armstrong uttered the now-famous words, "That is one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." Astronauts Armstrong, Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin and Michael Collins left Earth on July 16 from Cape Kennedy in Florida. Armstrong and Aldrin stepped onto the moon a few days later. The men spent 21 hours, 36 minutes on the moon before joining back up with Collins in the command module. The mission accomplished the objective set by President John F. Kennedy in 1961, which was to land a man on the moon then return to Earth. CBS Coverage of Apollo 11 Lunar Landing Apollo 11 - Saturn V Being an avid fan of everything that has to do with space and space travel, it's obvious I love to see great LEGO space projects. I especially like iconic projects depicting historic scenes. One of the most iconic space crafts is the Lunar Lander called Eagle carried into space by the Saturn V missile, during the Apollo 11 mission. Recently I stumbled upon a great project on LEGO Ideas, based on this event. The project is created by EB member Saabfan and it comprises the Saturn V missile and all modules used during the mission. The rocket is about 1 meter/130 studs high (aprox. 1:110 scale), has 1179 bricks and lots of features: Removable 1st rocket-stage with the main rocket engine Removable 2nd rocket-stage with rocket engine Removable 3rd rocket-stage with the Apollo spacecraft Apollo spacecraft with the "Eagle" Lunar Lander and the Lunar Orbiter The rescue rocket on top of the whole spacecraft Two minifigure astronauts on the Moon for displaying Apollo 11 CMS and Lunar Lander Below is a great picture of the Eagle (Lunar Lander) and in the background you see the Columbia CMS (Command/Service Module). The flag you see in the image is not there anymore. Buzz Aldrin saw it knocked over by the rocket blast as he and Neil Armstrong left the moon. This is a picture of the Eagle still connected to the CMS. Here's detailed picture of the Saturn V missile designed by Werner von Braun and the probably less known Arthur Rudolph. Here you see all the modules comprising the complete (proposed) set. It shows the EMV (Emergency Escape Vehicle) on the left, followed by the Command Module, Service Module, Lunar Lander and the different stages of the rocket.
