    MOC: Iveco Eurocargo + PF

    UPDATE: see below... _____________________________ I do not know exactly where to put this truck, or in the City or in Technic. Given that, it looks like Lego City vehicle and is in minifig scale, will probably be alright here. As the title says, this is Iveco Eurocargo truck. You can see the original on this link: http://dayerses.com/...urocargo-02.jpg For this MOC I was inspired by M_longer with his Mini PF truck: http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=33204 And what is so interesting on my truck? In particular, that the dimensions are in minifig scale, however it contains a Power Functions components for moving and turning. Here are some photos without PF components: Truck has a cabin 6 studs wide and cargo compartment 7 studs wide. Overall length is 21 studs (6 cabin + 15 cargo compartment). Spacing between front wheels is 5 studs (because each wheel is 1 stud thick), but back wheels have a spacing of only 3 studs (because each wheel is 2 studs thick). On the front wheels there is one tire plugged on each one, on the rear wheels there are two tires on each one. So the rear side of the vehicle looks very realistic. Here is visible the entire length of the truck: Front view: Detail view on the rear wheels: And here are some photos with PF components installed: At the top of the cargo compartment there is visible PF receiver. Maybe a little disturbing, but I had to install it somewhere. The vehicle also has some Technic bricks that are used for more strength. Under the cargo compartment cover there are hiding PF components. You can find there the BB with 6 AAA batteries, receiver and two M motors. Lower motor drives the rear axle to drive the truck forward/backward, upper motor is responsible for turning the front wheels (drive left/right). Above the motors there is the receiver that goes through the cargo compartment cover. On the BB there is a spacer installed, which is also used as an on/off button for BB. Here is a movie: Enjoy. ____________________________ UPDATE The cargo compartment cover is placed on the vehicle and is constructed so that it is consistent with the elevation and longitudinal spacers. Spacers prevent movement of the cargo compartment cover forward/backward and downward. For disclosure of cargo compartment you just lift up the cover. It's that easy. The most disturbing part on a truck are cables. And I do not mean aesthetically, but also spatially. It is difficult to find a suitable place for their implementation. Compared with the vehicle from M_longer: mine has the same basic drive, but turning is resolved differently. I also installed two M motors so that's why there is less space.

    MOC: Self Steering Truck

    As it says in the title, this is a Lego City truck, which turns the front wheels by itself in the direction you push it. I got the inspiration for this creation on an official Lego channel on YouTube with video .The vehicle is not exactly a great aesthetic achievement, but at the end it was more to the functionality than the looks. Here are some pictures: How it works on Lego City streets? Watch the video: Here is the explanation: The entire system is mounted in the lower part of the plate 4 studs wide (not shown in the picture). So the blue half-pins for attacing are mounted in to the middle circles at the bottom of an ordinary Lego plate and this amounts to width of 3 studs. The gray parts are in this case fixed and do not move. Purple pins connect them into a whole. The green part is responsible for a steady rotation of the black base for the wheels. Black base are connected with orange axle-pins to the gray and green parts. Red pins secure the wheels to the black connectors. Brown pin is added as a limiter for the wheels movement so that they are not rotating too much.
