Some Belgian LEGO Fan posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingHi guys I present you the Kässbohrer PistenBully 600, top of the range of the well known alpine ski slope preparation machines. The model reproduced in LEGO Technic is true to scale 1:16 and contains 2044 parts (excluding pneumatic tubes). I submitted it in LEGO Ideas: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/4afe4584-482e-4b91-9f3d-e79dd510ad77 (For more pictures, see LEGO Ideas site.) The model has many functions, some of which can be controlled remotely: Drive: both tracks are motorised individually and can be controlled remotely Pusher blade up/down and swivel are pneumatic, controlled from within the cabin The pusher blade side panels are motorised and can be controlled remotely In-cabin selector to switch between compressor and pusher blade side panels operation Tiller rotation is motorised and can be controlled remotely Tiller up/down is pneumatic, controlled on the tiller arm Side finisher are deployed pneumatically, controlled on the tiller arm Tiller swivel is a free movement so it follows the vehicle's path Cabin can be tilted forward and locked in normal position by levers under the engine cover The model uses stickers on a couple of panels and tiles: Doors left and right Tiller cover left and right Front logo Rear view mirrors Centre console monitor Centre console selector and two parts in a new colour: 3x5 liftarm in black (4x) 2x2 round plate in trans-orange (2x) LEGO Ideas rules did not allow this image: Please note that not all new pneumatic and PoweredUp parts are available in BrickLink Studio, that is why it has the wrong battery box, the old L-motors, the old pneumatic switches and no pneumatic tubes. The real version I made works fine though. Let's hope for some snow this winter so I can test it in real life ;) This model can be transformed in the PistenBully 600E+ by replacing the red parts with bright green. I tried adding the winch, but it didn't look good. I guess it's shape is too difficult (for me) to reproduce in LEGO Technic. So no winch for now... To do: - Make an animation showing the functions - Give the winch another try - Add penumatic tubes in drawing (I could try this by exporting the model to LDraw) - Replace L motors and battery unit with PoweredUp version when they become available in BrickLink Studio. Suggestions are most welcome. I hope you like it. If you do, I would be very gratefull for your support on https://ideas.lego.com/projects/4afe4584-482e-4b91-9f3d-e79dd510ad77
James Mathis posted a topic in LEGO Train TechThinking of a scenic winter wonderland MOC train under my Christmas tree. Built exclusively with elements from Shop at Home Pick a Brick, except for one piece, the transparent window inserts on the earth green passenger car which can be had at Shop at Home Bricks and Pieces service. So, if you like it, you could buy it and build it. I caveat, that I haven't built these trains... yet, so I highly recommend that if you think you might try to build them, please critique the LDD lxf file and use your good critical judgement, make your own assessment and any changes you like or find necessary. If you do, it would be awesome if you followed up with your results both LDD lxf file and pics of the bricks. you can see more pictures, the LDD files, and PDF part lists generated from the LDD instructions "HTML" instructions generator here at my Brickshelf account Inspired by Swiss Rhaetian Railway Inspired by Glacier And Bernina Express If you were to buy parts-- in full or to augment from your personal existing parts collections-- from Shop at Home to build a train, I wonder if you could notify them at time of purchase that the bricks are going toward this train build? thanks for looking, maybe building, and possibly your own inspiration to design within the Pick a Brick palette.
