  1. Hello everyone, I am quite new here as well as Lego world, but I am very happy to introduce my first MOC which spent more than 2 months to complete - Mercedes Benz Arcos Tractor Truck. At first let's check some parameters of this MOC: Length: 36cm Width: 18cm Height: 25cm Parts: around 2500, 100% Lego genius PF: XL motor x1, Servo motor x1, IR receiver x1, IR controller x1, Big Battery box x1 Pneumatics: 1x6 Pump x1, 1x5 Cylinder x1, 2x11 Cylinder x1, Switch x2 I was inspired by building Muuss's MOC based on 42043 B mode. After that I thought why don't I improve something to make it more powerful and beautiful, that's why this MOC could happens. I didn't use too many rare parts, most of the parts(approx 90%) can be found from 42043 and 42029. The truck body has 19 studs width and 29 studs height, so I used 81.6x38mm wheels to compare the size. Rear axle has driving by XL motor and front axle has steering by Servo motor. There are 4 yellow absorbers in front axle and 2 in rear. The head of truck is controlled by pneumatic to open and close. The trailer locker is controlled by pneumatic as well. I didn't use PF to control the pneumatic pump because lacking of the PF You may have to manually do the pumping and switching. I put pneumatic hoses, switches and pump into black box at the back of head together with IR receiver. One switch is controlling switch cylinder on head and trailer, another is controlling cylinder open and close. It looks pretty tidy and easy to control. Some details from different position. There are not so many gear drives inside the truck so I guess you can easily build your own truck like this. I didn't have chance to make any instruction on it, but you can refer the photos as inspiration for your own build, I believe it will not be too difficult. I used my 4 years old son to have a real size comparison so you might have an idea on how big it is Check the video below for more information of this build. Hope you like it. https://www.youtube.com/embed/TfpBNqm2QJk Edit: I am not familiar on how to insert video on youtube, can only attach the URL...
  2. So this will be my second topic on eb beside my 42043-C Zetros topic. This time it will be a D-model for 42043 Arcos set, and like the C.model I will continue the Mercedes Benz theme. The D-model will be an Unimog U4000 only build with parts from the 42043 set. facts: Mercedes Benz Unimog U4000 (4x4) 4 Inline engine Lenght: 5410 mm wide: 2336 mm Height: 2612 mm tyre size: 335/80 R 20 so if the model should be in a perfect scale of the IRL unimog, it would be a 1:16 build acording to the 62.4/20S lego tyres, because those are the one we have in the 42043 set. that means the 42043-D Unimog U4000 will be Lenght: 34 Studs (+-) Wide: 19 Studs (+-) Height: 20 Studs (+-) Pictures of my "don't think or calculate, just build" progress below Update will come....
  3. Hi everybody. last month I started a new project, while my 42043-C Unimog U4000 is on standby. I kinda like the Mercedes Benz team. so this one will be another Zetros. while my 42043-C Zetros was a C-model, this Zetros 3643 AS 6x6, will be way bigger, and not a C-model. Below is the blueprint I'm actually building from. been during a lot of research, blueprints and calculated a proper scale many times..... so by basing the scale on the wheels I figured out that a 1:12.5 scale would fit very well. I got some RC wheels 108mm, which kinda looks like the Zetros tires, but the Claas Tractor tires will fit the model very well too. Now let me show some pictures of my actual model so far. This one was my first atempt to build a proper fitting chassis for the Zetros But after a month with rebuilds and testing, I got to scrap that design, as the gearbox wasn't strong enough to power 3-4 kg of lego. also was the chassis a bit to flexible. so during january I ended up with this design: And by now I have finished most of the chassis, on moved on to the cab. As told it is the CrewCab model I'm building, mostly because it is the one I like most, and think it fits the size of the truck very well. By finishing the Chassis, it also means that bumbers and headlights are done. I'm not quite sure about the headlights yet, but it will work for now. The picture above, is the current prgress. More will follow. more pictures at: https://flic.kr/s/aHskRFHEQB
  4. Hi! Today I finished the 3d model of 42043-C Zetros, so the complete instruction files is on the way! ..... This is my very first Moc that I have published, but the project isn't 100% finished yet. Got the 42043 Set last year, and then decided to rebuild it into an alternative build [C-Model] This is how the model looks like now, it needs a touch before it's done. The model is based on the real life Mercedes Benz Zetros. Technical detail will come as soon as possible, but here is some picture of it. Like the 42043-A this model has a pneumatic crane without the buckets. the crane is build with one pneumatic hose going through the turnable, It allows the crane for turning 4x360 degrees without damaging the hose. 4 valves is mounted at the back of superstructure for controlling the 3 pneumatic cylinders. Crane lifting capacitet: 200 grams of lego[full exspanded] Outriggers been rebuild too, because those on 42043-A had some issue under load. these ones are build like those on 8110, But also allows to fold the outrigger-leg upsite for better clearence. Outriggers arms is controlled independ [2 functions]because of the missing feature with tilting the Flatbed. Battery Box mounted at the back of the cab. with a openable cover. Steering is build like on 42043, and controlled by the 2 beacons. the cabin was hard to build with the few white parts in the 42043 set, but I think i maded i pretty good. UPDATE will come soon! Some facts Lenght: 64 studs ( 52 cm) Wide: 19 studs ( 15 cm) Hight: 26 studs ( 20 cm) [folded crane] Ground Clearence: 3 studs ( 2.4 cm) Weight: will come today Pieces in use: 2399 6x4 Full suspension on all axles Parts: 2300~2500 Openable doors and hood Foldable outriggers Single pneumatic hoses connection ( making the crane rotate 1020 degrees) 3 valve 1 input valve Crane lifting capacitet: 100~200 grams of lego Steering from the ledt beacon on the Roof Model is RC ready
