  1. Finnaly found some time and inpsiration to build a proper alternate for this amazing set - Front loader. Functions: HOG steering - whole front section pivots Pendular rear axle Working 2 cylinder inline engine at the back Fully operating front boom - uses ratched mechanism to keep the desired height Angle of the shovel can be changed Opening doors As there are no access to worm gear or linear actuators, the lifting capacity is limited, but still it's possible to lift some lighter cargo. Rear axle can move freely without any suspension, therfore it's easy to overcome smaller obstacles. Whole front section is steering and is connected via the small turntable to the rest of the superstructure that enables easy and smooth steering using gear on top of the front loader. Just like with other alternates, it's possible to buy the instructions on REBRICKABLE. Cheers, TGBDZ
  2. Inspired by LEGO 8292 Cherry Picker, I've created a pneumatic rendition of that model as an alternate build of LEGO 42128 Heavy Duty Tow Truck. Pneumatic Cherry Picker by Brick Random, on Flickr My Pneumatic Cherry Picker has the following functions: steering (turn the knob on top of the cab) raise arm (pneumatic) extend/retract arm (pneumatic) turn arm (lift and turn the knob on top of the cab) open doors (manual) 4 cylinder engine driven by the four rear wheels A video demonstrating the functions: The basic shape of the original model is still visible in the final build of the Pneumatic Cherry Picker. However, the internal structure is almost entirely new, as a result of changing from mechanical to pneumatic operation of the arm, adding the engine (with two differentials for the four rear wheels) and the availability of parts in 42128. Instructions The model consists of 900 parts (all from 42128 Heavy Duty Tow Truck). Building instructions (a 215 step PDF document) are available on Rebrickable: https://reb.li/m/123565 More pictures are available on Flickr: Pneumatic Cherry Picker by Brick Random

    [MOC] 76912 GMC Syclone

    My 3RD alternative for set 76912. This time i used ONLY parts included in 76912 to build a legendary pickup truck - GMC Syclone. FREE INSTRUCTIONS: reb.li/m/122376 (WARNING THIS BUILD USES SPARE PARTS FROM THE SET)
  4. My next alternate model of 42125: Ferrari Enzo Features: - Opening doors, bonnet, trunk - Independent suspension - Fake engine - Working steering wheel Video: There's much influence of the 8653 set, which is my favorite one. So it's a kind of modern representation I made Rebrickable page: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-112172/paave/ferrari-enzo
  5. Here's my replication of the Ferrari Daytona SP3 made with the 42125 parts. Not perfect shaping, but the best panel configuration, to my mind. Coming with the free instruction Features: - Opening doors, bonnet, trunk- Independent suspension- Fake engine- Working steering wheel Video (including instruction): More images: Rebrickable page: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-108295/paave/ferrari-daytona-sp3
  6. When I first saw the 42139 set, I knew I had to get one. From the functionality aspect, the set for the relatively small price tag has a lot to offer, and it's an amazing parts donor as well. But I believe that I wasn't the only one that thought the 6 wheel ATV is quite an unconventional vehicle and it would look rather cool to see this as a more common 4x4 quadbike. So I made an alternate / mod that turns this into more classic looking quad. The front and middle part of the build remains almost unchanged (switched 7 long beams from white to orange to make better looking rear mudguards), also there is an extra part at the front to secure the winch hook. Almost no changes means that the functionality remains the same: winch steering Suspension 2 speed gearbox Working cylinders The cargo box on the back is fixed, so the dumping bed mechanism has been removed. To compensate for this there is a place to attach a trailer. Leftover parts are a great source material for the trailer itself, sadly no pins were left to make a proper trailer to complement the quad bike. Oh, and the best part is that it's still possible to assemble the chainsaw If anyone is interested. building instructions are available at REBRICKABLE Cheers!
  7. Modified Circle Track Racer built from set 42137 Formula E Porsche using most of the pieces, and using only the pieces supplied in the set. Has lever at rear to launch it! Powered by its two pullback motors.
  8. Hi everyone,I present to you a Jeep Gladiator Gravity-inspired vehicle made out of only the parts from the Ford F150 Raptor! Now it was a real challenge to design some parts of this model only using the parts available in the Raptor however, I really believe that this model looks good and that its suspension (highlight of this model) surpasses the Raptor.This model is based on a variety of different custom jeep designs but its main inspiration is the Jeep Gladiator Gravity!Features Steering via a gear at the top Simple, matching and pleasant interior NO DOORS (Preferred for a better 'offroad' look) Opening tailgate and large bed Opening hood with working engine Solid 4 link axle front and rear suspension Amazing flex Great design! Conversation Starter! Full description, more photos and a video here Instructions: https://reb.li/m/101856
  9. A trial truck with HOG steering, suspension and winch.The suspension and the steering is the same principle as the A-model's one but the chassis is two studs narrower.The winch has a knob on the side and it's easy to use, also it can hold the whole truck.No openable doors but the truck has full interior, and some detailing. 42122 Alternate.
  10. Hi folks, I'm happy to introduce my alternate build from the official set 42126 Ford F-150 Raptor, the Unimog (UniMOC) U1400 with Snowplow attachment. As the little brother of 8110 Unimog U400, this model in 1:17 scale uses 1264 parts of the inventory from the set 42126 Ford F-150 Raptor and 2 spare parts included in the set with a total of 1266 parts. Having the set 42126 Ford F-150 Raptor, all parts are available to build this alternate model and no other parts from other sets are required. The two spare parts from 42126 to build this Unimog U1400 alternate are: Instructions are available on rebrickable Follow this link to my page for more content Functions & Features HoG-steering independent suspension in front and back working 4-piston engine under the hood openable doors detailed interior openable hood to reveal engine attachment for Snowplow, moveable in high and tilting angle fully closed tipper bed with openable lid and lock additional snow shovel 40cm x 20cm x 18cm Impressions Sticker The model 42126 Ford F-150 Raptor uses many sticker for the lights in front and back, which are reused in this Unimog U1400. The images above shows some custom sticker, which are not part of the 42126 model and not mandatory to build this alternate Unimog U1400. Those custom sticker are optional and only used for better and more realistic look. If you have the ability to print custom sticker, feel free to do to polish up this model. Below this is how the front of the model looks like without any custom sticker, but with the original headlights of the Raptor... ...and without any sticker, for custom headlights for example. Instructions The premium instructions with high quality images as usual comes with 254 pages for a challenging but satisfying building experience. For a 18+ set, this alternate model is not more difficult to build than the Raptor. The instructions are available at Rebrickable. Here are some example pages of the instructions: Unimog U1400 in real Have fun with this replica of Unimog U1400 alternate build and feel free to build and discuss. I know this model is not 4x4 and it can't be 'cause the Raptor is not 4x4 and there are no parts in 42126 to do that.
  11. Week ago I decided to rebuild my 42121 set. Result can be seen here. It's a skid steer loader, more or less in scale of mid size Technic trucks like 42024/42078/42098 etc. Based on JCB single arm loaders: Almost all pieces used, large ones like bucket and turntable were not usefull this time, but can be used as a load ;) Featuring arm and fork movement, controlled by two knobs located on rear of the model and on top of the cab. Instructions: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-92027/M_longer/42121-skid-steer-loader/#details More pictures at Bricksafe: https://bricksafe.com/pages/M_longer/42121-alt/skid-steer-loader Video Few pictures:
  12. RC Rock crawler. Features AWD drive without differentials using 69730 "Large angular position motor"(As it has realy good torque), Steered by L-motor, and springless suspension (concept by superkoala). Lack of differentials gives nice off-road perfomance, but the crawler has big steering radius due to that.42114 C-model.

  13. Hi :) Today I wanna show my first finished alternate model - Racing Truck - B model of 42123 set. Racing Truck - 01 by Bricksley, on Flickr The set 42123 was bought at the end of December 2020 and the alternate model itself was ready on January 2 :D Unfortunately, the premiere was a bit longer ;) The truck is built of 554 bricks and includes the same functions as the model A, i.e. working V8 engine, front steering axle, opening doors. I also tried to show some details. Racing Truck - 02 by Bricksley, on Flickr Racing Truck - 03 by Bricksley, on Flickr Racing Truck - 04 by Bricksley, on Flickr Racing Truck - 05 by Bricksley, on Flickr Racing Truck - 06 by Bricksley, on Flickr Racing Truck - 07 by Bricksley, on Flickr Racing Truck - 08 by Bricksley, on Flickr Racing Truck - 09 by Bricksley, on Flickr The model also has an instruction made by my friend @M_longer Building instruction: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-77807/M_longer/42123-racing-truck/#details Video: https://www.youtube.com/embed/slVxaERxDA8
  14. My next alternate model of the 42125 set - Dune Buggy It's a replication of the well-known Meyers Manx dune buggy. Also the BF Injection in the GTA games. Size: L35, W19, H13, cm Parts: 665 Weight: 610g. Features: - Opening bonnet and trunk - Full independent suspension - H4-engine - Working steering wheel. A width is 2 studs shorter, than it's in the original set, so I used the floating differential suspension system. Working well. See the video: Instruction is available on Rebrickable: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-76011/paave/dune-buggy/
  15. Rebuild your 42111 Dom's Dodge Charger into this Vintage Custom Pickup with adjustable suspension. This is an alternate build of 42111, all required parts are in this set. If you own the Charger, you can completely build this alternate model. Keep in mind that spare parts of the set are used. Follow this link to the instruction Features: HoG-Steering openable doors straight 4-piston engine openable hood with lock openable tailgate in the back adjustable suspension in the front and back 40cm x 17,4cm x 14,5cm The model is packed with many details for an enjoyable building experience, playing and displaying.

Instruction The instruction comes in high quality rendered images with steps that are easy to follow. Here are some example pages of the instruction: Have fun with this 42111 alternate build. Let me know in the comments what you think. Visit the showroom of my page for more pictures and content here.
  16. This is my alternate model for the 42125 Ferrari 488 set - Ferrari F12 Berlinetta Scale: 1:10 Parts: 1181 Size: 45L, 20W, 12H, cm Weight 988g - Independent suspension - Working steering wheel - Fake engine - Opening doors with limiters - Opening front part of the bonnet You can find the building instruction on Rebrickable: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-66207/paave/ferrari-f12-berlinetta/#details
  17. Hello folks, I wondered why there is no official alternate build for the 42108 Mobile Crane (sometimes lovely called Yellow Parts Pack), so I decided to create this cool American Tow Truck as an alternate model. This alternate uses 1172 parts from the main model. Spare parts are not needed. The dimensions of the truck are as follow: 52 cm (L) x 15 cm (W) x 18 cm (H) with extended wheel lift (20.5 in x 5,9 in x 7 in) The model reaches a total height of 40 cm (15,7 in) with fully extended arm. In scale, it fits the 42078 Mack Anthem or 42098 Car Transporter very well with those tires. The functions are as follow: HOG-Steering workable 6-cylinder inline engine with nice clicking-sound under the hood openable hood with locking function both doors can be opened raising/lowering the boom - operable on both sides of the model extendable arm working winch with locking function extendible wheel lift Because the lag of differential in the main model, the inline engine is just driven by one wheel and not by the entire axle. The playability of the American Tow Truck is just great. You can use either the wheel lift to hook and tow cars or other trucks, or you can use the giant boom to rescue some crashed vehicles with the strong winch. The model is based on a real American Tow Truck. Here are some pictures of the model you easily can build on rebrickable: With realease of 42107 and some rare panels in red, this model can be build to 100% in red instead of yellow. Blue, black and white are also possible with a few changes. Since 42115 and the release of lime panels and connectors, this truck can be fully build in lime instead yellow with some minor changes. instruction The instruction comes in high quality and clear images for builders with an age of atleast 10 years. With 5 parts per step, the instruction is very easy to follow and has 234 total pages with a total of 347 steps. The model is divided into several submodels and steps with different camera views as common for modern Technic sets. Rendering the rope was a bit tricky because it counts not as a part, but the instruction steps are very clear and understandable to deal with it. And the best thing is: You do not need to make or release the nodes on the rope - you can use the rope with nodes on both ends from the main model as it is. Here are some random example pages of the instruction: You can find this MOC with building instruction on rebrickable: here Finally a cool 360 degress view and review
  18. Hi everyone, I'm happy to share with you my very first alternate build. Previously, I tried to replicate Professor's awesome Porsche MOC, but the photo-based instructions was a bit hard for me to follow. So I decided to go on my own and make something else. So I tried out a Caterham Seven. Various models seem to exist, but I got this 3D model as an example. Without further ado, here come the pictures! As this was very new to me, I kind of improvised. The key thing here was to be able to design the shape of the hood, so I came up with the following technique. Viewed from above, it all fits well together: The rest of the build went pretty well and I used almost all of the green parts of the original set to polish the details. For the interior, I couldn't use the Mini's steering wheel as it was WAY too large: Two side shots to finish this presentation: I hope you enjoyed the ride! Feel free to give me your feedback! Cheers!
  19. Hi! Finaly got my hands on a new set that I could use for making new alternates - 42123 Mclaren - it's a really great set, but when it came to deciding what to make, it turned out to be a lot harder then I expected. Almost no gears and functioning elements means that the look is the main point for being a successful alternate. I usually make my alternates with the all stickers, and this one was not an exception so taking that into acount it was logical to make something related to racing, but I didn't want to stick with just a random racecar, I wanted for it to be something a bit more special. Thanks @marceriusLV (my brother) for giving me the idea that I could use less than 4 wheels for a racing car, and we all know that the most popular three wheeler is Morgan. MORGAN 3 wheeler concept Functions: Steering - controlled by the steering wheel V4 - moving pistons driven by the rear wheel As with previous alternates - the instructions are available at Rebrickable Cheers! UPDATE. Decided to put all the alternates under one topic so here is an update. BAJA Racing truck After making a true three wheeler I decided to stick with 4 wheels, seeing that there are several truly great racing cars/formulas already made I thought of making something a bit more offroad. Initial inspriation was from the legendary Dakar rally car - Schlesser buggy. As usual while making alternates not all things went as planned and in the end I got something more similar to BAJA racing truck, rather then a proper Dakar rally car. Nevertheless I really like the end result. Functions: HOG steering Pendular front axle (similar to the 42122 Jeep set) Rear axle suspension using flex axle Mid mounted V8 working engine, driven by the rear wheel. As usual I try to make 3 builds form one set, and this time was no exception. Sea Sparrow For the 3rd model I decided to not use the wheels at all, so there are basically 2 options - something that floats or flies, I chose the flying option. At first I wanted to make a propeller plane but after 20 minutes of struggle It was clear to me that the plane is not the way to go. Helicopter on the other hand, was comming together super fast and after three evenings I already had a finished alternate (usually it takes much longer for me to make a properly working model). I Didn't want to stick with traditional Lego helicopter functions - working rotors that are linked together, so I managed to add a third function as well. Functions: Working main rotor linked with the rear rotor V4 engine connected to rotors (I know that helicopters have different motors :D ) Safety clucthes on both rotors that allow the blades to slip Working V4 engine is hidden behind the panels As always, instructions for my alternates can be found on my REBRICKABLE page. Cheers!
  20. The idea for the B model in the form of the Liebherr PR776 appeared in December 2019. Unfortunately, I had no experience building alternative models, so first I assembled a simpler model - skid skidder based on Bobcat T870. Having already some experience and, what is important, knowing what I can afford during the build, especially the list of parts, I made it. I tried to make all the functions and as much as possible to make the original look like this The tactic I chose when designing was to check whether the new engines and hubs would fit in the 1:18 scale model (scale to the wheels). In fact, when I put the first hub between the tracks and the drive motors, I ran out of space in the chassis. Another problem was the new, long actuators. While they are great for lifting the blade, they are too long for the ripper. In the original, these actuators are very short. To keep the dimensions of the ripper I had to build them much more into the center of the model. This added another space problems and the need to place one of the engines at the bottom of the frame. I really wanted the model to resemble the original as much as possible, so I started building with modeling the hood. Then I took care of the blade, which consumed almost all DBG system bricks. However, the basic curvature was pretty nice. Its appearance gives a lot of visual effect. The problem was the shape of the cabin. I don't know who designed the original, but there is a suspicion that he was drunk. Fortunately, it was possible to create a quite realistic cabin and interior. It is masochism to use the Control + system on models of this scale. How to build in two large hubs so that you can replace the batteries from the bottom and turn them on from the top? The first hub is located under the hood between the tracks. From the bottom we have access to the battery and we activate it with a clever switch in - the left platform. The second hub is located directly under the cabin. This can be easily folded back to gives access to the control hub and turn it on using a switch in the cabin The model does not have a realistic suspension. I resigned from it because the model weighs over 3 kilograms. I really wanted it to be stable and the tracks did not make such terrible sounds as the model A while driving. There are, however, four tilt carts that make it easier to climb over obstacles. Some technical data: Length: 46 cm, Width: 25 cm, Height: 23 cm, Weight: 3.04 kg Drive and steering – 2x XLarge C+ motor Ripper – lift (Large C+ motor) tilt (Large C+ motor) Blade – lift (XL C+ motor), tilt (Large C+ motor) I wanted the application configuration to be as simple as possible, so I also created a custom profile in the buwizz application which greatly simplifies the configuration of the model control. I also made a layout to make the control panel pleasing to the eye.

  21. Hi everybody! This is alternate model of the official Lego Technic set 42117The main feature of this model that it can drive around 2 meters. Realistic sound, both propellers rotate. YouTube When you push the model, the drive axle make the propeller works which produces the centrifugal force that force the drive works more longer.

  22. Hi All, I'd like to introduce my alternate model for 42099. It was inspired by the recently released Jeep Wrangler, in that it has a small turntable based suspension on both wheels. Since 42099 has the two large turntables, I thought I'd try and build a similar suspension. Also, since it has yellow-ish parts, I thought I'd build a body with Jeep-like features. Of course, not enough yellow parts for a full body, so I focused on the front (hood and the grill to be somewhat Jeep-like) and used to rest to make a consistent body at least. Building instructions are available from Rebrickable: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-62435/gyenesvi/42099-c-model-jeepy Some details I have opted for a simple suspension design by moving the turntables as close to the two axles as possible. The drivetrain is also very simple, putting the drive immediately to the differentials, resulting in slow speed but high torque on the wheels. The left and right arms holding the wheels are fixed, the whole front and rear axles are rotating and are damped by the springs. Due to the large turntables, a single pivot point is enough to hold the axles at both ends. Naturally, the size of the turntables is a bit of a problem for ground clearance (about 3.5 studs in the front and 4 studs in the back), but not as much as I expected (see below).A major challenge was to mount the steering motor on the front axle in a small space under the hood and to create a strong enough steering rig using only one side on the front of the axle (as opposed to the two-sided rig in the original model). The next challenge was to create a chassis rigid enough to hold the end points of the springs in a small pivoting mount to enable the lengthening of one side when the other one shrinks. Naturally, the arched pieces available in the model are useful for this purpose, with further reinforcements later on. The battery is placed in the middle of the chassis, providing a low center of gravity with easy access to turn it on. It is not a structural part of the model, so it can be taken out easily after removing a few body panels. Also, there's plenty of empty space inside the chassis to hide the cables.On the outside, I wanted to replicate some Jeep-like features with the few available yellow-ish panels. I decided to focus on the front, creating an arched hood with a massive front grill and lights. I wanted a consistent yellow body, so I used all yellow pieces for doors and hoods, and none were left for a roof, so I decided to build just a frame. Luckily, the curved corner pieces and the long black axles available could be pieced together for a consistent frame, that matches the style of the front grill. I think the overall proportions of the model came out quite well. I was also able to include a quite clean interior. As for actual performance on real terrain, see the video for my own off-road tests. Surprisingly, the large turntables are less often a problem in terms of ground clearance as I expected. I suspect it might be because with the fixed-arm pendular suspension, as one wheel is lifted, it also lifts the turntable half-way, so it is less likely to hit something on the ground. Also, with locked differentials it can climb quite well. Be careful however, on real rocks, it is possible to scratch the bottom of it, including the motors.The model can be controlled with the Control+ App just like to original model. More pictures Let me know what you think! Cheers
  23. After my 2 pick-up alternates, I returned to set 10265 twice more but this time to create 2 vehicles heavily inspired by iconic and classic sportscars from the 1960's in which Ford also played a key role, the GT40 and the Shelby Cobra which both fit perfectly with the 1967 Mustang. First the GT40 famous for winning Lemans. The GT40 was first built in England, but the later version in the US. GT04 main by Nathanael Kuipers, on Flickr The model features working steering wheel, opening doors, and engine cover with an engine that can be removed and displayed separately. GT04 open by Nathanael Kuipers, on Flickr Next is the Cobra Roadster, also a car that originated in the UK, but which Shelby with the help of Ford imported to the US. There it was equipped with a much larger engine that also required other changes to the chassis and suspension. I built this specific model for the TLCB Lock-down competition Cobra Roadster by Nathanael Kuipers, on Flickr This was a tricky model to render in bricks due to all its curves. Cobra Roadster rear by Nathanael Kuipers, on Flickr As with the GT40, this model features a working steering wheel and opening doors. Both front and rear open too. Cobra Roadster open by Nathanael Kuipers, on Flickr If you're interested to read more about the development or would like to see more pictures of either vehicle, please consider to have a look at my website NKubate.com. Thanks for looking!
  24. I built 2 pickup alternates from Creator Expert sets. The first one is from the 10265 Mustang set, and to keep within the theme and time period I decided to go for a Ford F100 from 1970. The model includes steering by HoG, opening bonnet, doors and tailgate, a detailed interior and engine. Once done I thought why not try to build a pickup model from the 10252 Volkswagen Beetle too? So that's just what I did with this vintage American pickup truck somewhere from the 1930's. It has similar features as the 10265 alternate except for the steering function, which was not possible. Some pictures: Pickup trucks from 10252 and 10265 by Nathanael Kuipers, on Flickr 10265 Pickup Truck by Nathanael Kuipers, on Flickr Pickup Truck guts by Nathanael Kuipers, on Flickr 10252 Vintage pickup truck by Nathanael Kuipers, on Flickr 10252 Pickup truck rear by Nathanael Kuipers, on Flickr More information and pictures for model 10252 and 10265 at NKubate.com.

  25. Hi everyone! I am sharing an alternate build I made from set 31009: Small Cottage. Eurobricks user Rufus wrote a great review of the set here. It is one of my favourite modern sets, as I find it quite charming and to have a lot of potential in its relatively smaller size as buildings go. This build may appear simple, but was rather challenging to get just right. Allow me to show you some of the features. Below you can see the exterior, with the large sliding steel door, the utility lamp hanging alongside it, and the small pool which laps at the side of our building. Here you can see some of what was challenging - getting that red stripe all along the eaves while still being structurally sound took some patient rearranging and allocation of elements. Here is the interior. You can see the roof cutaway (and if you look closely, see some pot lights in the rafters), as well as the sink with water and faucet for cleaning up. Another challenge is present here - getting that cutaway symmetrical and stable, and having sufficient red elements for the gables. Every inventor's garage requires tools, and this one is no different. We have a drill press, a tool chest with an oil can, some shelving, and some crates of various material. All of this fits easily inside the garage. If you have a robot garage, you'd better build a robot! And here is what was left over. Not too bad, I think. This was a lot of fun to build and share. I hope you enjoy the pictures and description.
