BrickbyBrickTechnic posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingHello all, Presenting my latest MOC: the Peterbilt 579! It is the first truck of its type that I have ever built, closest I have come to this type of truck is a tow truck. There are 4 RC functions: Drive (2 L motors), Steering (1 Servo), Shifting gears (M motor), and locking fifth wheel (M motor). This also just happened to be the first model I have ever built that actually has a working gearbox. My last model with a gearbox, the Ram, couldn't even work on half the gears.... One thing I'm especially proud of is the accuracy of the bodywork, while still keeping the suspended cab. The only part of the truck that lacked accuracy was the rear. Here are some pictures: So That's it! I hope you like the MOC! Any comments and criticism are more than appreciated. BrickbyBrickTechnic
BrickbyBrickTechnic posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingHello everyone, I'm presenting you the startout of my latest MOC: the Peterbilt 579. Here are the functions it will have: -Drive(2 L motors) -Steering(with servo) -Working steering wheel(servo) -Gearbox shifting(M motor) -suspension(Independent on front, springless dual axle on rear) -suspended cab -opening doors and hood(discreet mechanism) Here's what I have: You can see the drivetrain is basically complete, and the springless dual axle (don't worry, it's not the 42070 setup ;)) There will be double wheels on the rear. Diagram of the suspension. And that's all I have for now. I have also started think about the grille and bodywork. Bodywork wizards, please leave a suggestion as to how I can make those because I'm drawing blanks Thanks for reading, updates soon! BrickbyBrickTechnnic
