  1. 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,
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. Hey! Check out my Lego Boeing 737-600! Working: aileron, rudder, elevator, control column RC: flaps, slats, spoilers, landing gear, thrust reverser Length: 110 cm Wingspan: 125 cm Height: 40 cm Weight: 2,8 kg Video here:
  6. 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.
  7. 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: http://youtu.be/ERiFm_HnOOY
  8. 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!
  9. 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.
  10. 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: https://www.flickr.com/photos/151347462@N05/albums/with/72157684495359644 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

  16. Hello I want to present my first "BIG" C-Model and one of my first MOC. It is a C-Model based on 42043 (Arocs Truck) I see that 80% of all MOC's are Cars so i decided to build an Transport Airplane. I used parts only from 42043 Set. About 60% of parts were used. The Model is 65cm long and 55cm wide. Features: - 2x Engine, 2 cylinder with rotating propeller powered by electric motor - can be swithed on/off via gearbox - Pneumatic folding front suspension - Pneumatic adjustable wing flaps - Pneumatic adjustable rear flap Thank You.
  17. So I got a new LEGO room / ManCave for my son and I. Its large, about 20'x30', with open cathedral ceiling with exposed beams, ideal for hanging 9393 helicopter, 8480 space shuttle, 42025 cargo plane, etc.. I am looking for some solutions to do so - some requirements are - sturdy, can't risk any model falling; easily removable, by standing on a step stool should be able to reach the model and uncouple it from the hanger system for occasional swooshing and PF operation, and the hanging solution should be somewhat invisible. I am thinking about using this part , in trans-clear, as part of the support structure under the models, and then using colorless nylon rope to loop over the exposed beams. Perhaps s-hooks or carabiner-hooks can be used to attach the beams to the rope. Wondering if anyone else has done something similar and their solution. I am not planning to operate the PF while the models are suspended, however, but could one day...

    Bombardier C-Series

    Hello everyone I would like to introduce my model for the Bombardier C-Series (both the CS100 and the CS300) which is the newest narrow body plane being made by the Canadian giant Bombardier to take on Airbus and Boeing's duopoly on the medium sized aircraft market. My model for the CS100, the smaller of the two members of the family comes in the colours of Swiss Global Airline, which is the launch customer for the type. The aircraft features retractable landing gears and opening doors. It can seat 6 passengers. The tail is this way until I can justify ordering two 3x3 cross plates (15397) which I still have to do. DSC04420 by Maxim Pieuchot, on Flickr DSC04442 by Maxim Pieuchot, on Flickr DSC04437 by Maxim Pieuchot, on Flickr DSC04427 by Maxim Pieuchot, on Flickr My CS300 is 4 studs longer and comes in the colours of my custom airline Nova Airlines. The aircraft features the same retractable landing gear and door system. DSC04460 by Maxim Pieuchot, on Flickr DSC04467 by Maxim Pieuchot, on Flickr I hope you enjoy these two airplanes. My goal is too bring more details into the lego aviation world. I hope you find these creations achieve this. All comments are welcome :) Happy Building -Max

    Playable two-level aircraft A380

    Playable A380 in LEGO catalogue 2016? Ever since the two level aircraft Airbus A380 was introduced to the market I have waited and hooped for the release of a playable LEGO A380 model. I haven´t seen it yet by I´m still hoping for the set… This forum topic is for the supporters for such a set. I´ve tried the LEGO CUUSOO but my model was rejected due to the new rules that apply from December 2013. Nowadays new suggested parts, such as my suggested cockpit, are no longer allowed. Please post your own ideas of the A380 or just support my concept. Keep in mind that this forum topic should be versions that are playable and should be in a “realistic” price range…
  22. I present my new MOC, MOD Mercedes Arocs SILENT EAGLE Flight Simulator. Model was built for a competition on LUGPol.pl (polish AFOL forum). It is a flight simulator that can sometimes be found in amusement parks or at various air shows. But it is not based on any particular model. The original chassis is extended by a few studs between the axles to accommodate an additional pump in the compressor and gear drive for a second pair of outriggers behind the rear axle. Behind the Arocs cabin I installed servo and Ir to a control model . Everything above the chassis is already my design. It is full motion flight simulation platform with 6 small pneumatic cylinders each individually connected to a switch. The simulator is manually controlled from the cab. It is powered from its own compressor, two small pumps, airtank and PF XL motor. Additionally simulator is equipped with a new narrow long cylinder to open the door. It also has LED imitating projector and white panel acting as a screen. Two independent pneumatic systems are there to support vehicle outriggers does not lose pressure while playing simulator . LEDs are also in front and rear lights and running automatically when motion model.

  24. Hi guys, girls and kids :) I'm new on this forum and new to Lego Technic although i played a lot with lego bricks when child. Last week I bought my very firs Technic kit and chose the 9398 4x4 Crawler which has Power Functions and RC. After three days I ended the model and played with that 5 minutes than I made it apart to start something mine. I wanted an airplane, and I love bush planes, those with big tires that can land on every surface. As my kit contains off-road tires, that was a good start. :) And in two days and a lot of tries and retries I ended up with this. Here's the video link (don't know how to embed) It is inspired to the Piper Cub. I know, tires are to big and wings to small and maybe many other imperfections, but that's absolutely my first construction with no instructions, only fantasy and brain work. I succeeded in hiding everything inside: battery pack, IR receiver and motor. I'm very happy with the result, and maybe one of those next day I'll try to give it an engine for the wheels, although I'm reluctant to take it apart as I'm sure I'll not be able to remake it as now. I hope you like it. :) Bye K Every comment is welcome. Any suggestion to make fast instructions? Thank you
  25. Sometimes you find a theme that you like, so you stick with it. Here is my next MOC, the OCTAN Air Racer. Much more at thirdwigg.com, and instructions are at Brickshelf.com once moderated. The MOC features: Working 8 cylinder Radial Engine Working joystick Dual left and right ailerons Working elevator Retractable landing gear Opening cockpit With the gear down. The radial is more like two boxers perpendicularly connected. A little video. Enjoy and happy building.
