  1. My new model will be something quite unusual. To begin, I would like to say a little word about Ken Block. After revolutionizing what’s possible with a car and cameras, including rallyes, snow board and more – he passed away in a snowmobile accident at the very beginning of the year. This model will rather be a tribute than the representation of the car that he was to drive at Pikes Peak this year... The origin of the project Back to July 2022, I was contacted by WeBrick. They asked me if I could build a model using their parts. They provide adaptable LEGO parts, and their main advantages are the number of available colors (no limitations contrary to LEGO, for instance due to the few colors for mudguards) and the cheap price. This is why I accepted: it was an opportunity to create a model that I could’t have imagined with LEGO parts. I could choose any color and avoid all the color issues that you meet when you build with LEGO parts. Furthermore, it was possible to bring a MOC that is not more expensive than the equivalent LEGO sets, whereas usually, MOCs are way more expensive than sets. I won’t add more details about WeBrick, because this is not the main subject of this topic. I thought it was necessary to quickly explain why I accepted to build a model with non-LEGO parts and why I chose to reproduce the Hoonipigasus. So please, if you have any questions or remarks related to WeBrick, contact me by private message or by social media to keep this thread about my model. And you know what? There's even a 100% LEGO version! Choice of the model My model had to be built around these two main aspects: A never seen color An affordable price for a nice looking and functionnal model This led me to the Hoonipigasus in 1:10 scale (1:11 to be exact because the wheels are huge). The aim was simple: do better than LEGO’s 1:10 scale models. Eventhough the Porsche and the Ferrari have got a pleasant design for a low less high price than the 1:8 supercars, they are missing interesting functions. I wanted to provide a design at least as good as these cars, but with more interesting features. My model includes: Steering with return to the steering wheel and a HOG Openable doors and trunks F1-type suspension 4-speed sequential gearbox Here is the result: Design The most important thing I understood about design is that what looks best is when the panels are placed in the simplest manner, so the result looks simple. But it isn’t. That’s what I noticed on the Predator and the 1:8 Porsche of LEGO: everything looks simple, without angles between the panels, but this looks really nice. I tried to do the same thing on my model, with parts tilted around one axis at most. I longly wondered how I would replicate the mudguards. The real car was widened a lot, and the mudguards have got a really low profile, making impossible the use of LEGO mudguards. Flex only would have resulted in a too empty result, and I was afraid that using flex + beams would look too heavy. But finally, flex and beams look fine. On the rear, I even succeded in reproducing the slight inclination of the sides thanks to the use of 3x11 panels slightly pushing the mudguards on the exterior! https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/52626681965_a4ea88c804_b.jpg[/img] And a lot of stickers to make the design as faithful as possible! LEGO Version A few details change compared to the WeBrick version (12L flex instead of 14L, no rear headlights), otherwise they are identical. Steering The system is simple, you can see the pictures of the 3D model below. The steering can be controlled using the HOG as well as the steering wheel. However, there is a little defect: if you move the car backwards using the HOG, a gear of the transmission may slightly touch a bush, producing some noise. This could easily be fixed by removing the HOG, but to me, the pros of the HOG beat the cons. Openings The doors and a panel of the front trunk can be opened, while the rear trunk can be removed to see the rear suspension. F1-type suspension The original car features a pushrod suspension. I wanted to reproduce the system, while having something reliable. And with space constraints. I can tell you that I spent hours and hours making messed up prototypes! It was necessary that everything worked in compression and not in traction. Because suspensions like on LEGO’s F1s work well when the model was just assembled, but after some time, nothing works anymore: there are too important constrainsts on the ball joints and the connectors. Also, I had to get a geometry allowig a perfect height of the car. That’s all, I think I summarized the issues quite well! Gearbox Due to space limits, it’s a 4-speed gearbox, with a paddle shifter. The shifter is almost exactly the one of Lego Technic Mastery. On the WeBrick version, it doesn’t work as well as the LEGO version if you take the paddles from the upper part. The 3L axles tend to bend the holes of the liftarms, so you have to be careful and take the paddles by at least the middle. But on the LEGO version, no issue. Et voilà! Other pictures of the 100% LEGO version : To finish, the video ! Each model has got around 1750 parts. It’s a little more than LEGO’s 1:10 scale models, let’s say that it’s the fault of the mudguards. ^^ I also optimised the inventory: I managed to limit the number of references as much as possible by removing the useless colors and replacing some parts by others when it was possible. All the pictures are available here for the LEGO version and there for the WeBrick version. Fun fact: when I uploaded the pictures on FlickR, I realised that there were 43 images. What a coincidence! Here are the instructions for the LEGO version. If you are interested in building the pink version, send me a private message. Spacial thaks to @Milan and @Jim who authorized me to present the non-LEGO version on the forum.
  2. After building the 1:8 scale Spano GTA, I wanted to make something more compact, yet even more functional for the BuWizz camp 2021, which got postopned to 2022. The rules behind this model stated to build a 1:10 scale representation of a real existing car, which has to have a working gearbox, fake engine and working steering wheel. After researching different types of super and hypercars, I chose the Acura/Honda NSX since it had several good pros compared to the more famous brands like Ferrari or Lamborghini: The real car has a smaller profile, which means a lower weight It uses a hybrid AWD system, which would come in handy for the LEGO model for accelerating and braking on all wheels Engine powering is a V6, which doesn't take as much space as the typical V8, V10 or even V12 Since it's a less known supercar, my LEGO version could be the first one in such scale I used a simillar technique as with Spano GTA where I imported the 3D model into the Lego Digital Designer and used it as a 3D reference. Using this technique I ended up with a really close representation, and it really shows: As you can see in the gif above, not only does the model look very good, it's also full of functionality: 4x BuWizz motors for driving All wheel drive 2 Speed gearbox Working fake V6 coupled directly to the drive motors Working steering wheel 2x BuWizz 3.0 for control Double wishbone suspension on all wheels Dimensions and weight ended up as following: Length: 45 cm Width: 20 cm (without mirrors) Height: 12.5 cm Weight: cca 1,5 kg Here is how the model's underside looks like, drive motors are driving two independent gearboxes in order to evenly spread the mechanical load. This kind of a setup also cancels out any side forces on the central drive axle, thereby reducing friction and wear: In order to cram all the powertrain components in the rear the drive motors are placed in a V shape. This way there is just enough space between them for a functional V6 engine and a PU medium motor which switches the gearbox: Thanks to the compact powerline and driveline, the interrior is very spacious and both seats are almost 1:8 scale sized, measuring 6 studs wide. There are even stoppers and interrior details on the doors themselves: ž The end performance of the model is higher than what I expected, there is enough torque to freespin all 4 wheels, jump over ramps and top speed in high gear is almost 20 km/h! You can see how well it performs the video: To conclude, this is my first 1:10 scale supercar which also ended up extremely compact, functional, robust and good looking. I also think a 1:10 scale may be beneficial when it comes to reliability and robustness, since models tend to weight half the weight of their 1:8 counterparts while still incorporating a simillar level of functionality and details. Having said that, this will not be my last 1:10 supercar and I think for the next one I will ditch the gearbox and simply drive the wheels directly from the motors without any weak differentials.
  3. Hi all, I just stated a new project, and I decided to create a WIP topic for it so I can show my building process on it. It is for now a side project, I started it early since I got stuck a bit on my main project (which can be found here for those interested), so progress probably won't be quick at first. So about the car. It is going to be a 1:10 scale racecar. I'm not aiming for a certain car, I want to design my own. This gives me a lot of freedom in functions and features I want to add. I looked at the Greek mythology to find a name, and settled on Orion. I am going for a different design style than my previous builds. In those builds I used a lot of panels and liftarms to close as many gaps as possible, for this one I want to go for a more 'technic' look. I also have a list of functions/ features I (might) want to add: Definitely want to add these: AWD (3 diffs) Sequential gearbox + engine (a simple 4 speed one to leave room for other functions) Spring-loaded scissor or butterfly doors Advanced suspension set-up & geometry Openable engine bay (probably with a lever in the car) DRS (or a similar system) Rigid monocoque And might add these: Modular bodywork Modular chassis Active aero (e.g. panels which move when steering) If you have other features you'd like me to (try to) add, please let me know. So far I have built the axles. The rear axle is pretty much done, the front axle needs a few refinements, but is mostly finished by now. Rear axle: Orion - Rear axle 1 by Jerry LEGO Creations, on Flickr Functions/ features: Double wishbone Stiff, short travel pushrod suspension with a limiter Heave spring Anti-roll bar Differential Front axle: Orion - Front axle 1 by Jerry LEGO Creations, on Flickr Functions/ features: Double wishbone Stiff suspension (springs are attached with levers) Heave spring Anti-roll bar Differential Positive caster angle Kingpin inclination Ackermann steering geometry At first I also added a negative camber angle, but it was a bit too exaggerated and lead to some problems, so I decided to not add it. This is it for now, hope you like it :D
  4. Hello Eurobricks Technic, This is my first forum post and I'm currently attempting a 1:10 supercar technic MOC. Its largely based off of the parts from the 24 Hours Race Car 42039 and the Formula Off-Roader 42037. So far, I've completed the main chassis, drivetrain, and a partial gearbox. I'm opting for a sequential 4-speed since I lack the parts for a more complicated transmission. Pics found here: https://bricksafe.com/pages/damiankaneiv/aventador-wip At the moment I have finished most of the chassis and underside and I am just starting to do bodywork for the car. At the moment I have limited parts due to the rest of my collection being in another state. Features include: 1 All-wheel drive 2 Partial sequential 4-speed Gearbox (inspired by Attika's design; gears are the same but altered housing)... still missing some parts 3 Independent suspension rear and front wheels (largely based off 24 Hour Race Car set) 4 HOG steering (planned) Planned features: 1 Scissor doors 2 Rear aero (deciding whether to invest in designing an active aero mechanism or static wing) I'm drawing a lot of inspiration from Stefan Birkefeld's Aventador design in terms of body work and scale. Let me know what you think and any suggestions or changes I should make.
  5. Hi Lego friends! A short video of my Lego truck, a Volvo F12 Globetrotter log truck. I've been building it over the last couple of years, when money and energy has been present. It's close to 1:10 in scale and weight is 7,1 kilos. It's driven by two buggy motors and the steering is provided by one XL motor. Until the other day it also had a gearbox, but when making the video that gearbox failed utterly so I removed the whole thing and connected the motors straight to the axles for now. There's some more information in the video description if you are interested in the build. It's quite uncertain if I will work more on this truck or not, maybe it will be scrapped, but at least I wanted to share this short video of it here. Hope you enjoy!
  6. Mercedes Benz Arocs Crane Truck Full rc MOC with 21motors, 2 sbricks. 100% lego orginal parts
  7. This is my Volvo fh16 750 rc moc. The main goal was to create a huge 1:10 scale model with less funktions but very strong and fast for this size. the propulsion from lego dirt crusher is fixed long side and the batterybox is in the front
  8. before i build my battlebot i decided to make a special project, namely: a 4ws supercar with suspension and drive to rear axles the steering works great Now uses gear rack in rear Servo rear geared down 300% Motors have a 3:1 gear ratio New version updated full gallery at http://bricksafe.com/pages/aventador2014/4ws# hope this will be usefull for all Aventador
  9. Welcome everybody :) My name is Michał, I come from Poland and I’m 18. It's my first MOC showed here. Scania Logging Truck This truck is made in scale 1:10. The total size is: 113 studs of length, 29 of width and 37 of height (90/23/30 cm). It weighs 6,3 kg, has 10 motors and a lot of parts. Specifications: 1:10 scale lenght 113s / width 29s / height 37s Weight: 6,3kg 10 motors 4x6 drive Front independent suspension Rear floating suspension History From some time I've been planning to build something huge, when I had started building I didn't really know what I want to build. I chose Scania used to transporting wood. I built it from November to March. There was a 2-speed gearbox, but then there wasn’t enough space for crane and turntable. Suspension Front suspension is independent. For depreciation there are used 2 springs form the 9,5L absorber (from Unimog) and 2 springs from the yellow 6,5L absorber per each wheel. Rear suspension is floating, based on the elements of Unimog. For deprecation there are used 2 springs from the yellow 6,5L absorber per each axle. Driving To drive I used two XL motors with reduction 7:1.They are connected electrically and mechanically. Steering To steer I used one M motor with reduction 5:1. The drive is passed to 1x4 gear rack. Pneumatic The compressor is driven by M motor with the ratio 1:1. The servo motor conrols the valve and with M motor is connected electrically, so when the compressor is working the valve opens or closes. The Crane Rotation The rotation is based on the turntable, which is driven by M motor with ratio 168:1. The crane rotates only 180°, because of the pneumatic lines brought to the gripper. First section It is connected directly with the turntable. There are 2 linear actuators, driven by XL motor with reduction 3,5:1, responsible for lifting the second section. Second section It is connected to the first section. There is 1 linear actuators, driven by M motor with ratio 4,6:1. It is used to lift the third section. Inside there is a M motor responsible for rotating the gripper. Third section and the gripper To the third section there is connected the gripper, which is closed and opened by 1 large pneumatic cylinder. The rotation is driven by M motor with reduction 58:1. Outriggers Outriggers are built from mini LAs and driven by M motor. Others functions: Openable doors and cabine Headlights LED Working V8 dummy Some photos GALLERY
