Introducing... The Legacy Black Cat Truck! Celebrating 20 Years of the greatest Model Team vehicle ever made! Based on the original 1996 version with a lot of cosmetic changes! Looking very nice with chromed parts! Opening Sunroofs, upgraded to 2010s standards! Shovel, Fire Extinguisher & Toolbox So far, looking almost up to 2010s standards, including the tools! Dual Wheels! Even the cross-member behind the wheels is 2010s standard! Awesome new rear lights! 5th Wheel with locking bar! Everything below looks rounder than before! How I designed the Fuel Tank! Yes, I used the new 1x2 bottom curved pieces! Chrome Galore! Sleeping Compartment Yellow Diesel Engine, just like Caterpillar's engines! (because blue is childish and I wanted it to look more appealing to teens!) Cabin now up to 2010s standards so far! Seats now upgraded with curved headrests! Feeling hungry enough for pizza already? Ultra HDTV with built-in tuner! And that's all for now! Regards, Ryan Smith.
Hi, a few months ago, I fulfilled a childhood's dream and bought the awesome set 5571 - Black Cat! I built it, looked at it and was happy. But then I got the Volvo L350F and was fascinated by the RC possibilities. I wondered if this would be possible with the Black Cat as well. I did a quick research but did not found someone who built it yet. So I definately HAD to do it The truck itself is very big, so there would be enough space for all components. A big hood, large free spaces in the chassis, ... But I wanted to integrate all Power Functions WITHOUT notice from outside. So there should be no modifications to the driver cabin or the Lego-built motor. The PF-Reciever needs visual contact. I don't like that and I couldn't find a suitable space where the reciever could fit as well. Therefore I switched to SBrick, which also workes burried deep inside the truck. All PF: 1 Servo 1 XL-Motor 1 battery box 1 SBrick 1 PF extension cable After a lot of trial and error I finally fit all PF inside the chasis! The servo sits directly on the steering. The full lock is a bit higher than on the original, so I had to remove the blue tiles. The XL-motor is located vertically beneath the bed. So between servo and XL there is a gap of less than 9 bricks which just enough for battery box and all cables. The SBrick sits on the battery box's top (1 plate beneath the truck's seats). It's ultra tight but works! I also added twin wheels on both rear axles. Have a look at the video here: A look inside: And the complete set on Flickr - Sebastian
