Cardboy posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingThis is a B model for the Peugeot 42156. I have wanted to make an Audi R8 for a while and with all the grey pieces from this set I thought it could be possible. It was a nice challenge to try and create the Audi shape from limited parts of the Peugeot. And I hope I have captured the major features of the R8. I have had to simulate the 4-wheel drive as the two differentials spin at different speeds and to prevent damage to the pieces I have placed a pin connector as a fake differential. You can steer the car via the steering wheel and HOG steering, the latter can also be removed for a cleaner look for the model. Due to part availability, I have chosen a street race concept with carbon fibre bonnet/hood and roof, with large rear spoiler. I know the R8 is a V10 but I hope you forgive me for a V6 The doors can be opened, and the bonnet/hood can be lifted to see the suspension. This is my first time creating a B model and I hope you like the results. The instruction can be found here: Audi R8 Quattro - B model for Peugeot 42156 Features and Functions: · opening doors, bonnet/hood · independent suspension · HOG steering · 4-wheel drive I think the area around the engine could be a better angle but I didn't have enough long beams left I think the front is not too bad.
Timorzelorzworz posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingHi Folks, let me allow to share a new creation. This replica of famous Volvo Iron Knight Race-Truck is completely built with parts only from set 42156 Peugeot 9x8 Hypercar as an alternate model (B-model). Only a copy of donor set 42156 is needed to build this iconic truck. You can buy the instructions for this model here if you're interested in building. Features & Functions openable doors on both sides HoG-steering with removable knob independent push rod suspension in front and back V6-engine with moving pistons connected to rear differential openable lid in back to see suspension working Volvo brand with no sticker detailed design and interior lights that are glowing in the dark modular building with splitted premium PDF-instructions measures 44cm x 20cm x 18cm Impressions Headlights Lights in front are made with fluorescent bars from donor set to represent instantly recognizable headlights. A Lego addicted heart beats higher for the first time when the iconic V-shaped lights are glowing in the dark. No custom sticker Thanks to the inventory I'm happy to share my first model with a completely brick built front to recognize Volvo's brand only with pieces from 42156 and without any need for custom sticker. Suspension The model uses a soft push rod suspension in front and back. Due the fact that this truck is two studs shorter in wide than its base model, the suspension design is not only a simple copy, but an own approach with a way different building instead. Through an openable lid in the back, the suspension can be watched working. Steering Driving and steering the truck works directly with a steering knob on top of the cabin. This steering knob is removable and can be easily pulled out for better displaying the model. Engine The real Iron Knight uses a straight 6 piston engine instead of V6. Due limited inventory and missing crankshaft parts, it was not possible to form a straight working engine out of V6. Some compromises are made here and as a result, this alternate model uses a working V6-engine with moving pistons. Instructions & building process Premium instructions for this model comes in two separate PDF-files with high quality images and building steps very close to the original Lego Technic ones to ensure a satisfying building experience. Building this Iron Knight alternate model starts with the 249 pages long main PDF to finish the rear end first with differential and suspension included. The second instruction file takes over to assemble the entire front section together with a suspension and steering system you never built before. After 132 pages the front section becomes married with the rear end. Frames and structural elements are added to make the model solid. The working V6-engine becomes attached and connected to the rear differential through drivetrain. More parts are added to form characteristic lines and shapes, getting closer to a real looking Volvo Iron Knight. Some parts of the cabin are attached and the drivers seat and doors take place at their final spot of the model. After 381 pages of joyful building in total, this Volvo Iron Knight alternate model is finished in all glory and ready to drive on your shelf or desk. Grab instructions here Crafted in Sweden.
