  1. Hi! every one! Have a long time haven't log in, then saw plenty of impressive stuff. I went to another State and worked for months, and had some ideas come out during that period. Here is what I got. Thank you for your attention!
  2. Hi everyone, This is my P-51 Mustang Racing MOC. It is made out of 401 official LEGO pieces. Blue Bull is 28.7 centimeters long (11.3 inches), its wingspan is 30.7 centimeters (12.1 inches), it weighs 263 grams (9.3 ounces) and its top speed is just over 400 km/h (over 250 mph)! A single pilot can sit in the comfortable cockpit and take control of the plane any time. Although Blue Bull has an aerodynamic design, its mainframe’s strength is not compromised! The model is designed with agility, durability and playability in mind, so in case of an accident, the plane is sturdy enough to withstand any drop from the height of up to 30 centimeters (12 inches), without any part breaking off. The model can be easily and carelessly swooshed by holding any part – main body, nose, wings, tail or even the propeller. Plane’s nose, wings and tail are connected at a slight angle. Sideways and top-down building techniques are implemented to achieve the appropriate design of the nose and tail. Nose has a smooth narrowing shape towards the propeller, while tail also narrows towards the endpoint. Main wings also have a slanted design – rear line of the main wings is angled in two points, contributing to the overall appealing shape and leaving enough room for the front landing gear. Front landing gear can be deployed or retracted, but rear landing gear is fixed. If you like the plane and would like to see more photos, visit my Flickr album. And if you especially like the model, consider supporting it on Ideas, under a title "Blue Bull"!

    Jon Hall's Airplane

    Hi! every one here. First, happy Thanks Giving! Second, is Jon Hall here? Or is any body know Jon Hall? I am one of his/her follower. Here are some of his/her works, there are really fantastic!
  6. Dan Journman is a world famous traveling freelance LEGO reporter, specialized in engineering and technology. If Eurobricks agrees, I will post here excerpts from Dan's travel stories. His accounts have typically 4 parts: A description of his experiences, historical background from local sources, technical details, and his personal final comments. Some years ago, Dan visited a distant small mining facility with innovative water powered generators. But that's another story. This topic is from an intermediate stop during his journey, at a small regional airport. Dan's Story The morning flight from the SW capital was uneventful. It lasted a while as it was on the edge of the range for our small airplane, but it was still rather pleasant. The old but well maintained and clean aircraft was an LTR-24, seating 25 passengers, 1 cabin and 2 flight deck crew members. The three-bladed propellers revealed that this particular airplane was a quite old version of the popular regional turboprop; though with upgraded avionics and FMC. The LTR-24 is the smallest of the LTR range that has included the LTR-32, LTR-40 and SLTR-44. Based on the real world Aerospatiale/Alenia ATR series, passengers board through a rear located door and cargo is loaded through the large cargo door in the front, behind flightdeck. The first thing I noticed when we landed was the size of the airport building. I was surprised to find that there were only two daily flights connecting with bigger towns, in addition to some local flights to nearby sites, including the mining town I was about to visit. As I had some time to spare before my next flight, I had the opportunity to talk with the airport manager who was very helpful in providing information and he even gave me some pictures taken by drone, showing a similar aircraft (LTR-24) parked at the apron. The manager explained me that the airport building was an ambitious attempt to establish a secondary regional hub in the NW territory, to serve the few small northernmost towns of the region. Pressure from local politicians and overoptimistic hopes for rapid development of the region dictated the construction of a relatively large terminal with 5 gates, including 2 air-bridges. The two-level building has the capacity to serve several simultaneous flights. However, by the time the terminal was inaugurated and for the years to come, the passenger volume remained low and the largest airplane ever connecting the city to the main NW hub was the humble LTR-24 with a twice-daily service frequency. Two or three smaller SWTL-16 based at the airport connect the nearby towns. The irony in the pictures is obvious; the air-bridges are out of service since the LTR-24 (as well as the smaller commuter planes) cannot use an air-bridge and passengers board from one of the 3 ground gates. In fact, only a fraction of the terminal facilities has ever been used. Local press has often cited the airport expansion as a scandal, perhaps not without a reason. Some technical details about the Terminal The airport terminal of this small hub has a departures hall with check-in kiosks and desks, baggage drop-off and ticketing services. In the secured area, the main hall (mostly empty space) has only a small cafe selling also some souvenirs. Passengers board the planes through two air-bridges or ground level gates. A dedicated hallway allows any gate to be used for arrivals as well. The arrivals hall has two baggage claim belts and a car rental desk. The footprint area of the terminal is 6912 square studs (0.44 square meters, 4.8 square feet) and the volume is approximately 138000 cubic studs (0.08 cubic meters, 2.8 cubic feet). Final Comment from Dan A typical waste of taxpayers money. Spend too much, build too big, leave things unfinished and ugly looking. Low quality construction with limited use and functionality. Photo 1 (from drone) Baggage loading and passengers boarding. Loaders are placing the baggage into the forward cargo hold. Photo 2 (from drone) Passengers exiting the terminal building through ground gate B2. We used the exact same gate. Photo 3 (from drone) Another view of the flight preparations. Notice the First Officer standing next to the number 1 engine while doing the pre-flight check. Photo 4 Upgraded flightdeck of the old LTR-24 commuter turboprop; photo taken from behind First Officer's seat.

    Landing Gear

    I want to recreate the mechanic in this video, starting at 1:14, in the smallest scale possible. Is there a way to do this without gears? Is this even possible with Lego? Ideas will be much appreciated.
  8. OK, I'll play too. I am excited about any reason to build an aircraft, but these last couple of days have been rough. I have drafted four ideas (F-86, TA-183, Air Racer, and DH Mosquito), and I didn't like were any of them were going. Getting the nose right is so tricky. Or I am too picky. So, here is the fifth idea, and we will see what can happen with this. It's not very ambitious, but I'll be able to get it done in time. And it fits with what I like to do, mid sized, no PF, and packed full of features. Dual Rotors Front and Rear Collective control Retractable landing gear Opening side door Rear ramp Which It's not much to start, but I have drafted some of the mechanics off to the side. I'll update again tomorrow. I am stuck on colors right now. Yellow and red is overdone, and I do not want too much white, so I welcome votes.

  9. Hi, I would like to present my next C-MODEL model. This time it is made from 42025 (cargo plane) SAILPLANE GLIDER Designed completely computer-free method. Just building, un-building, rebuilding. It took me over the year. But I had few periods when I did not touch it for several months or many weeks. For now, there is only very few pictures, you can call it a teaser. Video showing details and functions, complete description, and many pictures will come soon. Features: COMPLETE FLIGHT CONTROLS -working ailerons (controlled by the stick in the cockpit) -working elevators (controlled by the stick in the cockpit) -working rudder (controlled by the working pedals in the cockpit) -working flaps (controlled by the lever in the cockpit) -fully retractable landing gear (1 central wheel) (controlled by the knob on the side) -fully open-able and close-able landing gear bay (controlled by the lever under the fuselage) -open-able canopy (controlled by the lever on the side under the wings) - correct T shape tail - only 7 studs wide fuselage! - only 2 studs thick wings! - winglets - tail wheel. - structurally sound and rigid, wings are somewhat flexible (but still very playable) but I guess it is only accurate: No motorized functions - I thought it would be odd to put motor into something that is by definition motor/engineless - (I know there are self propelled sailplanes, but this one is not it) It is totally full, very packed and dense MOC. It is not a simple build. It assumes the builder is experienced technicman/technicwoman. It is huge - see with 42055 as reference: I hope you like it. More to come "hopefully" soon. _________________ edit 2: Video: _________________ edit 1: Photos added: leftover parts: February 2017 state: ______________________________ I hope you like it. Thank you for your time seeing the pictures.
  10. So, it's already been three days since the contest was announced, and I still haven't built anything yet... It's probably time to get started then! The Inspiration: The idea for my entry comes from the main model of set 8485 - a set I'm still yet to build despite owning most of the parts... The Goal: My plan for this build is basically a modern version of the above model, but with a plane replacing the helicopter, and including the following features: Movable ailerons and elevators Lifting, rolling, and pitching of the plane Full manual control - no remote control. (hopefully) Possibly something else... The First Prototype: Rather than spending an extra day building a working prototype, I decided to just quickly build the basic idea in LDD, as I know from experience that I rarely end up using anything from the first prototype... Anyway, that's all for now, I hope to have something functional built either tomorrow or the next day...
  11. Hello all, I’m new and it’s been a while since I last purchased a LEGO set. I love airliners such as commercial ones, jets, any modern airplane really... I purchased the Boeing 787 Dreamliner (10177) however, this seems to be the only set that’s actually decently sized, and not a MOC. I’ve tried googling and all forums to see if I could find others but to no avail and MOCs of aircraft I do find, either have no instructions or very small/basic construction... so if anyone can show me the right place to find decent well made models instructions or even alternative builds ? It would be amazing,
  12. I just picked up the Boeing 787 Dreamliner (10177-1) and the Silver Champion (8458) and was wondering how I can go about adding my own livery to each of them? or if at all possible? Such as getting custom stickers created? is there a website or program that would be helpful in creating custom stickers for these sets? **UPDATE COMPARISON BETWEEN SILVER CHAMPION 8458 AND MCLAREN MP4/14, MERCEDES MGP W01, F1 CARS** LEGO F1 SILVER CHAMPION 8458 1999 MCLAREN MERCEDES F1 MP4/14 2010 MERCEDES-PETRONAS F1 MGP W01
  13. Around 4 months ago I built alternative model of 42035 Mining Truck but I just found some spare time to take pictures, film and describe it. So, using only parts from one 42035 set (including spares) two models were created: single engine Airplane and Tug. In total I used 347 parts from original 364. Mostly long axles and connectors has left. AIRPLANE This one has been built first. First off when I saw tapered panels I thought – “they’ll fit perfectly as an airplane wings!”. So I had no doubts what kind of alternative I’d like to do. Alpha version was created in 3 evenings and didn’t differ that much from the final product but still many parts left, including 4 wheels. I thought that it’s too much waste of bricks and I have to think out something else, best if this “something” would fit existing model. And so, second model appeared - Airport Tug, but about it in a minute. Airplane consist of 208 elements. It has moving single piston engine and propeller at front. Movement comes from rear wheels which are made out of T16 entwined with a chain. Plane has also movable rear loading ramp and ruder. From visual site there are pair of landing lights and side exhaust. Cockpit and 4 windows for passengers were highlighted too. TUG As I mentioned earlier after building airplane lots of parts left and I’ve made second vehicle – tug. It consist of 139 parts and has 2 functions – driving and retracting rear tow bar with hitch. In this model you can detect 2 similarities to mining truck – front grill and steering system. As there were quite limited amount of bricks left, probably nothing better than this, which has been already made, was possible to create. As in original truck there is also HOG steering. Tow bar mounting point is exactly at the end of frame. To fold and unfold it there is T8 gearwheel placed just behind driving wheel. At its end there is a hitch for airplane front wheel that can moves freely in any direction. After hooking it up propeller doesn’t touch any part of tow bar. Thanks to short wheelbase and overall compact dimensions even with hooked up airplane, maneuverability is really good. Everything due to limited amount of bricks is outlined in shape of tug but whole construction is resistant for intensitive play. Unfortunately visual attractions and details almost doesn’t exist beside front grill, mentioned earlier, and headlights. Bearing in mind that there are only around 360 bricks to use I think that models are not that bad. Both of them had to go on compromise but more attention and parts I spent on airplane. VIDEO: INSTRUCTION: It is true that making instructions is not my strong point but this time due to fact that many of you has 42035 set, I decided to made a LDD model. You can download it along with automatically generated instruction by clicking: DOWNLOAD Before building note that LDD interpret "axles with stop" incorrectly, so it's sometimes impossible to place it like instruction suggest. Keep it in mind when building. Thanks
  14. Here I'd like to show you two airplanes that were already on display at the exhibitions Bricking Bavaria in Germany and Mondesee in Austria. Both planes were also available as official sets in large scale in 2001 and 2002 – I had now tried to construct them in minifigure size. Sopwith F.1 Camel Fokker Dr.I Hope you like them - please let me know in the comments :) Best Johannes

  16. Hi Eurobricks member Here is my entry for Eurobricks contest It’s a pullback airplane Functions: As all the pullback, when you moved back, the engine cheers up itself. When you left, wheels and the propeller turns The video:
  17. My first plane was a success (for the most part). It had most of the functionality I wanted it to have, though it lacked in terms of looks. The wings were just the worst thing, and there was no flow to the body, which was full of illegal connections. So I want to fix those problems, but in a different plane. First was a Gulfstream Private jet, now I present to you the passenger airplane. Now the big thing on this jet will be the wings, because the Jet engines will be on the wing, unlike my last plane. Function list: -Ailerons -Elevators -Rudder, coupled with ailerons -Landing gear with suspension system -Opening doors -Airbrakes -Working jet engines (though this will be more than unlikely) Pictures: 1 wing with part of fuselage. Wing uses beams with axles rather than just axles. It can hold itself up. Elastic band suspension system on the landing gear mounts. 2 mini LA's. So that;s it. Update tomorrow. Hopefully, I can finish this by Tuesday, because Tuesday onward I can only build on weekends. Have a nice day!
  18. Hello everyone. This is my last diorama and the bigger one I've ever made, work started last summer. I've spent about 5 months to build it (included all veichles, buildings etc.), in free time. there are about 25.000 pieces, I don't know exact number and I don't care. Diorama are based on 12 bases 48x48, 5 bases 32x32 and 1 base 16x32, approx 210x120 cm. I hope you enjoy it, please leave a comment and follow me on flickr, there are more pictures. Thank you very much to all and sorry for my bad english. Andrea, Kriminal, Italy.
  19. Today, I would like to share my first creation on Eurobricks with you all. A model of a giant towbarless Pushback Tug. To be exact, the Goldhofer AST-1X 1360. The real vehicle can lift up the front landing gear of the biggest aircrafts. I tryed to build all the functions, how they are build in the real Goldhofer, especially with the rear steering. The model has 8 RC functions:- Front wheel drive (XL Motor)- Front wheel steering (M Motor) - Rear wheel steering (2x M Motor) -- I had to decide, whether I would like to have crab steering or steering with different wheel angles to allow smooth driving. In the end I've chosen the second option, because crab steering is still kind of possible.- Raise cabin (M Motor)- Pneumatic pump (L Motor)- Raise landing gear (L Motor)- Close lid (M Motor)- Fix landing gear (M Motor) Unfortunately, the model has some flaws. The cabin is lifted in a weird way, because of the battery box under it and I struggled with the lifting section. I had to use really strong clutch gears and worn out valves, and even with that, the valves didn't switch always. Also I had a problem with one of the pneumatic cylinders, the reason why I used two pumps. As a result I had to glue two 2L axle between the pumps to the red 1x2 thin liftarms because of the vibration. I was sick of searching for another solution . Here is a quick render, made with LDD and Bluerender. Images with higher resolution on Flickr: I already took the model apart, but l would still love to hear your opinion, some tips or criticism. Maybe I'll give that model another go in the future.

    MOC- WIP Pusher Sea Plane

    I've been working on this, today. Trying to come up with an interesting pusher plane design that has influences back to World War II. This first picture is from from where I was blocking in the hull of the design. This shows a bit more design work with the addition of a different windscreen as well as the support pylons for the wings to the man fuselage. I'm still thinking of whether or not to add wing tip pontoons. Feel free to add any comments you have for additions to this design.

    LDD MOC: Boeing 717

    Due to financial restrictions, I can't build real models as of yet, so LDD will have to do, I've made several things in the past but this is the first time I decided to showcase a model online Being an aviation fan, I decided to build an airliner using a combination of the big '<insert that tiresome argument>' parts for the cockpit and tail-cone and smaller parts for the wings and tailplane. It contains more details than you would get in a typical CITY set, it has obvious cockpit and passenger seating put it also contains separate first and economy (known as coach class in America), folding seat for a flight attendant, fully featured galley and a bathroom in the tail-cone (not pictured). Also not pictured is inverted roof pieces used to represent overhead compartments (although these make it difficult for minifigs to fit in comfortably) and clocks hanging from the ceiling in the aisle Constructive criticism is encouraged and accepted. 717.lxf
