I started working on this model many weeks ago in Lego Digital Designer first. The whole concept started with the quarter circles from BWE, which are able to perfectly accomodate the small rotors. I was heavily inspired by the (movie) Avatar's rendition of helicopters. After a lot of tinkering in LDD, it was time to start building in real life: It was here I discovered I made a big mistake. The control stick located in the cab used to tilt the rotors was reversed! I had to go back to the drawing board and correct the control mechanism. Few days, fixes and improvements later, this is what the final model looks like: I wanted the colors to randomly switch from yellow to make it look more eye-striking. Where possible I used black 2L pins instead of the blue ones. As stated in the topic name, this is a motorized model, powered by the small LiPo battery box which is hidden in the tail, next to a single M motor: The single M motor powers a total of 3 functions: - Drive rotors (always engaged, spinning in one direction only) - Opening cargo doors and rear ramp (powered by a gearbox) - Working winch (powered by a gearbox) You can see the driveline of all the motorized functions here: The red mechanism at closest to the M motor makes sure rotors are spinning in one direction only, irrelevant of which direction M motor spins. This way changing direction of the gearbox does not change in which direction rotors spin. Gearboy in front switches between openining doors+ramp and a winch. The doors and ramp are actuated by a single actuator located right behind the cockpit: The rear of the cargo doors is connected to the ramp via bewel gears, so both open at once: I also bult a small container which can be easily lifted by the motorized winch: The container can easily fit inside the cargo bay area: You can see the finished model's video below:
Hello, I've got a small vignette to show you - a blacksmith. It is only 50 pieces + minifig. If you want to build it yourself and don't feel like doing it just from those pictures, here is a link to Rebrickable (building instructions + pieces): http://rebrickable.c...tari/blacksmith And here are the pictures: Full gallery is here: http://bricksafe.com...ilds/blacksmith Enjoy :)
Hello, I have presented my small "Waiting for the train" vignette some time ago. Upon presentation there were some suggestions to have at least some representation of a train station as well. Since that one was too small to fit it, I have expanded my MOC to a 32 x 32 footprint. I hope you'll enjoy :) EDIT: This MOC is now on LEGO Ideas - please support it by clicking here if you like it: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/96989 THANK YOU! I am especially happy with the bench: All the pictures are here: http://bricksafe.com..._train_expanded
Kumbbl posted a topic in LEGO Technic and Model TeamThere is an awesome convertible variant of Natanael Kuipers Concept Car (more informations about this wonderful supercar MOC can be found here: http://www.eurobrick...oncept Car&st=0): (gif animation stolen from TB - http://www.technicbr...ept-car-by.html - a very good description of some variants of the Concept car) It is a very well designed roof with a reliable and robust gear-driven closing/opening mechanism. It adds great value to the concept car. And the whole roof fits pefectly to the outstanding modular design because the whole roof is one modul which can be mounted with just a few simple steps and with effortless ease... Well, currently you can buy perfect lego-like BI for the concept car but unfortunately only for the basic car and not for the gullwing and convertible variants. I asked Natanael if he has some better detailed pictures of the roof mechanism as available in his brickshelf folder. He has generously send some to me which allowed some better views... thanks a lot, Natanael! On this basis i have now managed to reverse engineer the roof-components and have made detailed step-by-step photo building instructions. I have uploaded them to brickshelf: - step by step instructions for all needed components: http://www.brickshel...ry.cgi?f=540360 - all needed steps to mount the roof-components to the car: http://www.brickshel...ry.cgi?f=540361 (Each file name contains the step number) Here is an example of the level of details of this BI: I'm quite sure everyone can easily follow these instruction steps ;-) An excel part list can be found here: http://www.brickshel...ry.cgi?f=540359
