  1. MOC Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR in Lego Technic Dear friends of the LEGO Technic theme world, in this post I present you my latest MOC of the VW Golf GTI TCR. The model has an elaborate front axle for the front-wheel drive, a 4-speed DSG transmission, steering, brake and a pneumatic lifting system. I used two SBricks for control. My version is built with 3d printed wheels, but lego wheels fit, too. Drive: 2 XL motors Steering: 1 servo motor Gearbox: 2 servo motors Brake: 1 M motor Control: 2 SBricks Light: 3 pairs of LEDs First, I'll show you a picture and the YouTube Video In the following I would like to introduce you to the individual functions and the history of the project. Preparations: In 2017 I saw a photo of the prototype for the first time and as a VW fan I knew directly that this would be my next project. Because there were no blueprints from this vehicle, I took the blueprints of the basic model, VW Golf 7, and overlaid it with appropriate pictures of the vehicle. The scale was set with the choice of tires (Wheel 56mm D. x 34mm, Tire 68.8 x 36 ZR (15038 / 44771)), to 1: 9. After that I converted all dimensions into studs. Construction of the front axle: Now it was time to get the bricks out of the boxes. First, I built the front axle. The model has a front-wheel drive with Ackermann geometry, caster, stabilizer, suspension and brake. The drive axle for the fake engine runs in the lower part of the axle to couple directly to the XL motors in the back. Without consideration of the Ackermann geometry, I have created a YouTube video for the front axle. For the construction manual I am not sure if I should install the Ackermann geometry there. Some used parts are very rare and expensive. In the video you can also see how the brake works. By rotation, two rubber bricks are pressed against the differential. With the SBrick control, I have created a sequence that first lets the M motor press against the differential and releasing it again. Due to the scale a disc brake was not possible in the wheel. The suspension was massively strengthened in the course of the project, so that the vehicle weight is held up. Unfortunately, the stabilizer (red) has no longer a technical function. YouTube - Front axle Construction of the rear axle: For the rear axle, I initially had the idea that the wheels should have a slight camber. I have implemented this as followed. Maybe someone else can use this. However, this was implemented later due to the vehicle weight and the desire that a multi-link axle by VW is represented. Construction of the 4-speed DSG transmission: The construction of the transmission took the most time. I wanted a transmission that could be controlled blind with the smartphone. It should work reliable and without constant monitoring of the moving parts. In addition, it had to be so small that it fits "between" the front seats (The model has like the original only a driver's seat.) and under the seat, but in front of the drive module. Overall, it was very limited. Here is a photo of the final version, which is very trivial operated with two servos. One servo controls the 1st and 3rd gear, and the other servo controls the gears 2 and 4. This allows quick and smooth switching. An extra video is also available. YouTube - Gearbox Construction of the pneumatic lifting system: At that moment I was done with the chassis. However, the pneumatic lifting system fascinated me and in other MOCs something like that was already realized. Since there was still room for the necessary works, I developed and installed three modules with cylinders. Here's an example of how I built the front left cylinder. In general: I built and organized the entire model in modules. The chassis is subdivided into the following submodels: front axle, transmission module, drive module and rear axle. The rear lifting cylinder is integrated in the drive module. The front lift cylinders connect to the transmission module. Then all modules can be assembled to the entire chassis and fastened with a few connectors. Other modules are the fake engine and the dashboard with steering gear for the moving steering wheel. The conclusion has formed the body. Again, I worked with many submodels, so you could always work on small to medium sized submodels. This has especially facilitated my work in the Stud.io program. The entire model is already built in BrickLink’s Stud.io with all building steps. I am still considering whether I should offer the construction manual for sale or keeping it unique. Too many companies are copying MOCs and do not refer to the artists. You can find more pictures on BrickSafe or my Social Media channels on Facebook and Instagram. Give me a feedback and ask your questions here in the thread. I like to explain the things even further in detail. I love the render function in Stud.io :-)

  4. Models in this thread: #1: Wrecker (60056 MOD) #2: Container Truck (60027 MOD) #3: Ice Cream Truck (70804 MOD) #4: Joe the Plumber's Badass Step Van (70811 MOD) #5: Sunshine Surfer Van/Volkswagen T2 "Bay Window" Camper Van (Creator 31079 MOD) Hi all, while everybody seems to be freaking out about "alternate models a 7-10 year old could build" I have a different suggestion to make: alternate models for grown-ups - we're AFOLs after all, aren't we? Of course what I'm thinking of are no real alternates - you will have to add quite a few parts. But what you - hopefully - get are more elaborate City vehicles that are supposed to go well with the modulars. As we all know Town vehicles are primarily designed for Children, they lack the complexity of the CC buildings. On the other hand they often have attractive colour designs plus great functional elements that are worth preserving. Thus what I'll try to do is to modify some vehicles according to the following rules: using the typical design elements of Town vehicles (windscreens, mudguards etc.) omitting most of the studs fixing holes where possible keeping all that’s nice and replacing all that’s too simple using not too fancy building techniques, models must be easy to reproduce use of stickers from the set allowed keeping or even enhancing the playability functions must be functions, devices shouldn’t be movable just by hand seating at least one fig - but under no circumstances in the center of the cockpit ;-) 100% Lego, no third party stuff allowed By saying no fancy techniques there is one - very important - exception: the wheels (but more on that subject later). This is the actual range of widths I'm building all my vehicles in: #1: 60056 Custom Wrecker The original model of this wrecker (see http://brickset.com/sets/60056-1/Tow-Truck) is one of my favourite town sets of the actual range. I really love its nice colour scheme plus there are some great design elements which I've tried to preserve as you may see. As said, wheels are very important in my opinion, that's why I try to avoid the usual City wheel/mudguard combination which leads to a certain monotony in town layouts, especially due to the fact that the same combination is being used on passenger cars and on trucks which makes no sense to me. Thus I try to use as many combinations as possible. Another advantage of this is that you get different types of wheels with many different diameters suitable for quite a few purposes. Another important aspect of this model is functionality - a tow truck should be usable for towing purposes. The original set is already quite functional, however, I wanted to have separate functions for the boom and for the lifting cradle. Plus both should be functions in the above mentioned sense, that means, not just movable by hand. That's why some technical stuff is built in - which is much easier with a 7w than a 6w form factor, as you may recognize. That's the way it works: Thanks for looking, some more pics on my Flickr. More vehicles to come.

    [MOC] VW Repair Shop

    A new home for my VW Collection, be it old or new or rodded, enjoy
  6. I've got to use some points by the end of the year and I'm considering putting them towards the Bus, or the Beetle. I really like the bus but I'm not crazy about the red. I'm curious if anyone knows if there is list of color options I could swap out. Or if going to brickset to see if the color I'd like is available in all the pieces. I'm wanting to replace the red with lime green or a shade of blue. So my options are buy the bus and bricklink the color pieces i want to change(I probably have a good portion of them). Or buy the beetle and then bricklink the entire bus( of which I currently have about half or a little more of the pieces in my bricklink store) So what would you do if you were in my shoes.
  7. Put a tiger in your tank!* - Part 2 Few days ago I presented the Volkswagen T1 Esso Service that was the first part of my latest MOC. Today I'm happy and proud to show you the second part: a classic Esso gas Station designed in 1953 by Dutch modernist architect Willem Marinus Dudok. My LEGO Dudok Esso gas station has the same features of the real one: an elegant design, a v-shaped roof on both sides, two gas pumps on a dark grey platform, different advertising signs and other stuff. The shop is on the front of the station; a detailed service garage is located at the back. There are a lot of details both outside and inside the building, let's take a look. In the shop you can find a big desk with a vintage phone, a cash register and a architect lamp. A big clock is positioned on the wall close to the shelves where you can see the oil cans and an old radio. Two neon lights and a fan are hung on the ceiling support. The garage at the back features a lot of utensils, advertising signs and other stuff. My VW Type 2 T1 decked up in Esso livery fits perfectly in this scene. Take a look at the Michelin Man (Bibendum)...I love it! The design of Dudok was simple and brilliant simultaneously. According to the mission he received from ESSO Netherlands, the station had to be functional and inexpensive to produce. It was just after World War II and raw materials were scarce. At the same time the road network grew and pumping stations had to be placed anywhere. 112 Dudok Esso stations were placed along the Dutch highways. Below an overview. Below you can see the real Esso station photographed at the National Automobile Museum Collection Louwman (The Netherlands) where was placed in 2004. I built this brand new MOC last winter and I’m particularly fond of it. More pics and info on my flickr photostream. *Put a tiger in your tank! was the Esso slogan during the sixties and seventies. All the best and happy building! Andrea - Norton74

  12. Put a tiger in your tank!* - Part 1 This VW Type 2 T1 “canvas” pick-up is the LEGO replica of a real T1 registered in 1956 in The Netherlands. It was used by the M.v. Noord, a little company based in Amstelveen (close to Amsterdam) that sold and delivered petroleum for domestic heating. Pieter Grabijn, son in law of the son of the first owner, found it in a barn few years ago. It was totally rusty. Peter restored the red pick entirely and now the machine looks really appealing. Below the T1 pictured at the circuit of Zandvoort (NL). This LEGO T1 is based on my previous Road Service T1 but with a different livery. Canvas stitching technique is the same I've used before but this T1 has both the right side and the back side of the canvas rolled up. The tarpaulin is also a little bit lower. Ready to be delivered petroleum jerry cans are located on the load compartment. The license plate is an old Dutch one: PV 88 17. The writing on the load compartment sides means "Esso petroleum for your domestic heating" (It's written in Dutch). Few days ago I posted the T1 on my Facebook page and when the owner saw the post he couldn't believe, he was incredibly happy for this LEGO replica. He showed the T1 to his father in law (the son of the first owner) who cried for the happiness and for the good old memories the T1 reminded him. He still lives in the same address you can see on the doors and even the phone number is the same...This is really incredible! *If you were born in the seventies, then you remember the famous slogan of the Tiger...

    [MOC] Volksrod

    Since i got my hands on this beautiful quarter dome piece i knew that sometime i was going to use it in a little Volksrod but everytime i was trying to build the rest i couldn't get past the cabin section! Then out of nowhere, Calin https://www.flickr.com/photos/_tiler/ posts his beautiful Volksrod https://www.flickr.c...ler/24838347625 and without knowing it he solves my riddle!! That chair is exactly what i needed! The rest you can see it! Just because it wasn't very time consuming, there are some instructions...
  15. Hello folks! Few weeks ago I presented my version of the VW T1: the canvas covered pick-up for Volkswagen Service. Now I show you my last MOC, an Oldtimer workshop for Volkswagen "Bulli family". The right place for my T1 (and not only...). Here some pictures: In order to build the internal of the workshop I watched my real garage where I used to spend a lot of time restoring and repairing old motorcycles and bicycles. There are many tools and details in the workshop. [ Last winter I spent many nights to build this workshop and I'm very satisfied with this MOC. Soon probably others Transporter will be recovered in this garage… For more pictures, details and informations: flickr MOCpages

LEGO Mercedes-Benz Actros 4160 SLT With Nooteboom MCO 121 by Jaap Kroon, on Flickr LEGO Mercedes-Benz Actros 4160 SLT With Nooteboom MCO 121 by Jaap Kroon, on Flickr After years making prototypes of steered trailers, we, JaapTechnic and LiftingBricks, finally made it to create a system to make a semi trailer with automated steering axles. This system uses the angular displacement of the fifth wheel to steer the axles. This all happens with pure LEGO powerfunctions. In the following video you can watch this system in action. In the video are the following models presented: Nooteboom MCO 121 semi trailer Mercedes-Benz Actros 4160 SLT Volkswagen Transporter T5 escort van Liebherr LTM 11200-9.1 build by LiftingBricks For the Nooteboom and Mercedes are building instructions available.

  17. New box for 10220 Volkswagen T1 Campervan? http://i.imgur.com/LVrEpog.jpg
  18. In this thread, I will share my experiences (and sometimes struggle) for finding and buying the bricks for building the Volkswagen Beetle 10187. At Bricklink, this set is available starting at 450 euro's (used) or about 600 euro's for a new one. It is a challenge to find and buy the separate bricks and have it cheaper than a used set. If there are particular questions, please let me know. More to come later. /Hans

    Lego Volkswagen T1 Transporter

    This is a realistic version of the famous Volkswagen T1. This is a transport for goods, not people, so it doesn't have windows. It has: - 4 openable doors Imagine traveling the world in this thing! Check out the pictures here:
  20. Hello mates, today I show you probably the last VW transporter of my series, at least for a while... It's a sandblasted T2 bodywork ready to be painted. Below, the bodywork in the workshop... Side by side with my VW T2 pick-up The back... ItLUG (Italian LEGO Users Group) has recently published the complete story of my VWs and of my VW garage. Here you can read the complete story: Volks…heaven: tutti i Bulli di Norton74 Complete gallery: Norton @ flickr All the best!
  21. Hey Ladies and Gentlemen, at this point i can't hold myself back and present to you my new project. This is a VW T3 Flatbed. The features i've implemented so far are 4 wheel drive with full suspension on all wheels. The whole thing is driven at this moment by two XL-motors. It has already mounted a 4 cylinder Boxer engine just like the real one, which isn't connected to the drivetrain at this point in construction though. For the headlights i've used the orininal Lego PF LEDs but the taillights are soldered 5mm LEDs because i haven't got more of the original ones and they are a bit to expensive for me. Steering is realized via one Servomotor. Hope you enjoy it and if there is a good idea just say it. Rolf
  22. Hello folks, few weeks ago I presented my custom version of LEGO® set 10220 (VW T1 camper van), the “canvas pick-up” for road service. After having built it I decided to design and create the model that replaced it, the iconic VW T2, introduced in late 1967 and built in Germany until 1979. The T2 is also called Bay or Bay Window. The T2 has surely been the most loved van/pick-up by the surfers of all the world. So I placed two surfboards on the load compartment and I put close to it a classic LEGO® palm tree from pirates series. Here some pictures: Below: my T2 is in my garage for a check. Don't worry, the guys know where put their hands... Below: the the LEGO® T2 alongside the KOVAP T2. For more pictures, details and informations about my T2: flickr MOCpages VOLKSWAGEN T2 BAY - "SURFER PICK-UP" on LEGO IDEAS If you like my "surfer pick-up" vote it on LEGO IDEAS. With your support the T2 “surfer pick-up” can be made into an official set. It will be perfect on the shelf next to your VW T1 Camper Van and your Mini Cooper! You can make it happen, VOTE NOW! Thank you for your support! Norton74
  23. “Run for it, Marty!” I hope you like this MOC of the VW camper driven by the Libyan terrorists in the opening movie of the ‘Back to the Future’ trilogy. It was based around a similar camper in yellow which I found on Reddit, made by legopirate85 (on imgur). An LDD file is available upon request!
  24. Here I am with another Bulli. This time it's something really special. An Austrian engineer recently retrofitted a 1966 VW Bus Bulli T1 with late-’60s Bombardier caterpillar tracks and a DJ sound system capable of causing an avalanche… The Adventuremobile isn’t riding on wheels anymore; instead, the Bulli body has been placed on the chassis of a 1960 Bombardier B01 Spurgrat snowcat. The T1 Snowcat can reach up to 30 mph (50 km/h) in the snow and when parked a DJ booth pops out of the freakin’ roof! Fresh mixes are bumped toward the crowd by way of a 1,000 watt subwoofer, 2 × 300 watt speakers, a five-channel Behringer mixer and a pair of Technics turntables. Let's the party begin! A vintage Ford of Germany Taunus V4 sends power to the left and right tracks via a transmission system that allows the van to move forward, backward, and spin on its own axis. The T1 Adventuremobile version is often used by the ÖAMTC, which is the Austrian automobile association. Specifically, this Bus is being used by ÖAMTC’s youth outreach program, which dabbles in dispensing safe driving advice, travel planning services and other transportation-related informations. It has been hard to make photos because the white bricks I used weren’t all new and some of them were yellowed. Also the black isn’t a easy color to shoot… Anyway I took some pictures and I hope you enjoy. More pictures, details and informations about my T1 Snowcat Adventuremobile: flickr
  25. Hello folks, I'm a "fresh" member and I hope this is the right place to present my last MOC. It's a custom version of the VW T1: a "road service" canvas pick-up. In 2011 I bought the set # 10220, I think it’s a well detailed and shaped set. Furthermore I like vintage vehicles and especially the Bulli (even called Samba or Kombi). I haven't bought original LEGO sets for many years and It has been a pleasure to have a new LEGO box in my hands. Personally I prefer “working vehicles” and I wasn’t satisfied with the camper version. I waited to build it until I had the idea to build a canvas pick-up for “road service”. So last winter I built my own version of the T1 and last week I took some pictures. Maybe someone of you has already seen it on my flickr stream or Mocpages (and on The Lego Car Blog). My T1 has two side doors below the load compartment; two shovels for road emergencies are mounted on the doors. Two spare wheels, a fuel tank and a wooden box with various tools are positioned on the rack. The plate is an italian one and the numbers are the original ones of a real T1 (I like the old Italian plate style). Two HELLA supplemental lights are fitted on the front bumper. A sticker with the VW Bobble Head mascot is positioned on the canvas, I love it! Without the canvas, the T1 is a funny pick-up to carry "oversize" load. The floor is made of "wooden" plates.
