    Boeing 747

    The aircraft Completing its maiden flight on February 9th, 1969 the Boeing 747 went into production in 1970 and has been so for more than 50 years. Over the course of time many different variants of the airliner were produced. Aside from its major use in passenger transport it was used to carry the Space Shuttle, used as an airborne telescope and most recently used to launch rockets into orbit. Its iconic shape with the distinctive hump that accommodates the cockpit and the raised passenger deck has become a classic symbol for all jumbo jets and airborne passenger transport alike. With the aircraft retiring from service soon I thought it would be a great chance to submit this project as a tribute to this iconic airliner. The model While not being based on a specific variant of the 747 this model is meant to be a general tribute to this awesome marvel of engineering. The creation is built out of 603 parts (including stand) and the aircraft measures approximately 37 cm L x 33 cm W x 10.5 cm H (14.6" L x 13" W x 4.1" H). It includes many details such as printed decals representing the passenger windows and the doors, the four turbofan engines, removable landing gear and a sleek stand for dynamic display. In combination with the size, the stand and the stylish red and orange livery would make it a great swooshable desk display-piece for any fan of LEGO and aviation. This creation was built using Mecabricks and rendered in Blender but all building techniques have been tested with real bricks as well. Feel free to check out this 3D-view of the creation on Mecabricks and the high resolution images on flickr. If you like what you see then please consider heading over to LEGO Ideas and supporting. With your help this could become an official LEGO set!
  2. ALL CREDITS GO TO THE LEGO GROUP FOR THE DESIGN AND THE INSTRUCTION BOOK. WHERE CAN I GET THE INSTRUCTIONS? Here you go: http://www.mediafire.com/file/k4nu591ygsd7tn5/42113.pdf/file WHERE DOES THAT FILE COME FROM? The Lego distributor in Vietnam put the set on the shelf early. I bought it. I paid to have it scanned by a photocopy shop. WHERE CAN I GET THE PART LIST? Photos from Racingbrick. WHAT ARE THE NEW PARTS IN THIS SET? New Parts in 42113: - Power Up Battery Box, part number 22167 / 6214082 / bb1165c01 https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=bb1165c01&C=86#T=C&C=86 Parts in New Color in 42113 - Technic Liftarm 3x3 T-shaped in Orange, part number 60484 / 6305545 - Rotor Blade (Sian Side Skirt) in Black, part number 65422 / 6305550 - Wheel 31mm D. x 15mm in Orange, part number 60208 / 6303441 - Technic Panel 5x11 Tapered in Orange, part number 18945 / 6303439 - Technic Panel 5x11 Tapered in DBG, part number 18945 / 6112843 - Technic Panel 3x5 #1 in DBG, part number 87080 / 6013548 - Technic Panel 3x5 #2 in DBG, part number 87086 / 6303445 - Technic Curved Triangular Panel 3x13 #50 (Sian's hood) in DBG, part 67142 / 6310171 - Technic Curved Triangular Panel 3x13 #51 (Sian's hood) in DBG, part 68196 / 6310172 - Technic Curved Panel 3x13 in DBG, part number 18944 / 6303446 HOW CAN I BUY THE PARTS? I'd suggest you use Bricklink. Pick the lists that suit your need from the one below, then import it into a wanted list in Bricklink. To import, go to Want, and pick Upload from the menu. Bricklink lists: 1/ Master list: The XML code is in this link. https://pastebin.com/a8TaMR9m. Credit to @Alitai. The list doesnt not contain the new parts and the parts in the new color listed in the previous question. What this list has: All existing parts with the exact colors in the official part list above What this list doesn't have: All the new parts and parts with new color listed in the previous question 2/ List of orange parts: Because some of the orange parts are exclusive to this set and haven't appeared on Bricklink, I put all of the parts in red. https://pastebin.com/AmDNwp6V What this list has: All of the Orange liftarms and panels and system parts in the part list above, but in Red. That means it does include the parts in Orange exclusive to this set, but those parts are listed in Red. What this list doesn't have: One Technic 3L pin with bush in Orange. All the remaining parts in the Master list. 3/ List of DBG parts: Because some of the DBG parts are exclusive to this set and haven't appeared on Bricklink, I put all of the parts in white. https://pastebin.com/GuLnJYF0. What this list has: All of the DBG liftarms and panels and system parts in the part list above, but in White. That means it does include the parts in DBG exclusive to this set, but those parts are listed in White. I've substituted the two triangular panels with two 3x13 curved panels. That means it has 3 3x13 curved panels. What this list doesn't have: Triangular curved panels (Sian's hood). DBG gears or connectors or axles. All the remaining parts in the Master list. 4/ List of Remaining parts: This list is the Master list (list 1) without the parts included in Red and White recolor (list 2 and 3). https://pastebin.com/qdZztzsA What this list has: All of the parts remain after the Orange and DBG parts in list 2 and 3 above are deleted. What this list doesn't have: 6 rotor blades. New battery box. HOW MUCH DO THE PARTS COST? I put the lists 2 3 4 into bricklink and created a cart for all of them. The tentative costs for parts alone is 216 EUR at the time of writing. DO I NEED ALL OF THE PARTS IN THE LIST ABOVE TO RECONSTRUCT A FUNCTIONAL REPLICA OF 42113? Yes and No. Yes because this set has a dumb Power Up Battery Box that powers the L-motor. Without the battery box obviously the motor wont work. No because all of the other components for the main functions, namely gears and the L-motor, have all been released in other sets, and there are ways to get around the requirement for the new dumb battery box. HOW CAN I GET THE NEW DUMB BATTERY BOX? The new battery box has been officially released by Lego as a standalone set with the set number 88015. You can buy it directly from online Lego shops. HOW CAN I BUILD THE RECONSTRUCTED VERSION WITHOUT THE NEW DUMB BATTERY BOX? The first way is to replace it with a Control+ Technic Hub. The Technic Hub has the same dimensions and mounting points as the dumb Battery Box. The downsides of this way are: - The current design doesn't allow access to the green button. The dumb Battery Box has an axle hole at the switch and is designed to be turned on from the OUTSIDE. Only the bottom of the dumb Battery Box is accessible for battery replacement. The top of the dumb Battery Box in the model is completely covered with rigid structure, and the linkages to drive the wheel retraction movement is nearby. See the upcoming photo. A mod for access to the green button is necessary. You can do it like below. Credit goes to user chefkaspa on rebrickable. - You need a device with Bluetooth connection and some custom app to control the Technic Hub. - You need to setup a profile in PowerUp to control the Technic Hub. See tutorial here. The second way is to replace both the Power Up L-motor and the Control+ Technic Hub with a Power Function AAA Battery Box (set 88000, bricklink number 87513c01) and Power Function L-motor. @efferman has come up with one. Please go to his bricksafe folder https://bricksafe.com/pages/efferman/42113-a-rebrick to download the .io file. @Seo-onDaddy has come up with another one. BatteryBox io filehttp://naver.me/GaLivNa1 DO I NEED ALL OF THE PARTS IN THE LIST ABOVE TO RECONSTRUCT A REPLICA OF 42113 THAT HAS SAME COLOR SCHEME? Yes. Some parts in DBG and Orange are exclusive to this set. IF I DON'T MIND AN INCONSISTENT COLOR SCHEME, DO I NEED ALL OF THE PARTS IN THE LIST ABOVE TO RECONSTRUCT A REPLICA OF 42113? No. All of the panels already exist in some other colors. IF I WANT A CONSISTENT COLOR SCHEME, WHAT ARE THE OPTIONS? The colors in the model can be divide in 3 parts: - LBG for the lower body of the fuselage. There are no new parts or parts in new color in this part, so no need for recolor. - DBG for the main body. The colors that have all the panels for the body are Black, White, and Dark Azure (42070). I'd recommend White. This is the XML code for the Bricklink list of all body parts in white. https://pastebin.com/GuLnJYF0. This list only contains liftarms and panels. It doesn't contain gears or connectors or axles. The only missing piece is the triangular curved panel. I've substituted the two triangular panels with two 3x13 curved panels. - Orange for accent. The colors that have the required panels are Black, White, Dark Azure, and Red. Since Black or White should be reserved for the body, I'd recommend Red. And maybe Dark Azure. But Dark Azure won't be as strong as Red. This is the XML code for the Bricklink list of all accent parts in red: https://pastebin.com/AmDNwp6V The two triangular panels are currently available only in Lime and Red. If we go for White as the main body color and Red for the accent color, then although there are no White triangular panels that correspond with the DBG ones, the Red ones can be used to create a consistent color scheme. There is also a real life white-red color scheme for the Osprey. WHAT DOES THE RECONSTRUCTED VERSION LOOK LIKE? This is my reconstructed version: Here are others' versions: HOW DO I FIX THE PROBLEM WITH THE GEARBOX? The gearbox problem is actually a combination of separate smaller problems: Problem 1: Gear grinding/chewing. To fix, add 3 8z gears and bracing. Credit goes to Huw from Brickset. Required additional parts: - 3x 8z gears, part number 10928 - 2x 5L thin liftarm with axle holes, part number 11478. PDF instruction: https://bricksafe.com/files/andman/42113---gearbox-fixes/42113_fixes.pdf. Credit goes to @Andman for the creation of the pdf file. The results should look like either of these. The second version is better because the gears are braced from both sides. Problem 2: Inadequate torque to the spinning blades. Required additional parts: - 1x 3L liftarm, part number 32523. - 2x 20z gear, part number 32269 - 1x 2L pin connector, part number 62462 - 2x Pinhole with pins on both sides, part number 87082 - 2x Half bush, part number 4265c - 2x 2L axle connector, part number 6538c - 2x 6L axle, part number 3706 Pdf instruction for 2nd fix: https://bricksafe.com/files/andman/42113---gearbox-fixes/42113_fix_rotor_torque.pdf. Although the pdf only shows the fix for the left nacelle, from step 317 to 325, the same should be applied to the right one, from step 296 to 302. Credit goes to @Andman for the creation of the pdf file. The results should look like these. I HAVE QUESTIONS THAT AREN'T LISTED HERE. HOW CAN I ASK YOU? Leave a comment in this thread and I'll reply.
  3. Not sure whether this has been posted on this forum before, but here is a link to a Change.org petition for LEGO to reintroduce the V-22 Osprey set to its line after the recent controversy surrounding the nature of the product: http://chng.it/KHK9sbSbrY Thought I'd share this here. It's a bigger discussion in LEGO Technic but this might be pertinent to LEGO Military enthusiasts.

    Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey 42113 Petition

  5. UH-46D Sea Knight US Navy (2) by [Maks], on Flickr Good morning. After 3,5 year hiatus I would like to present my newest creation. It's good ol' Boeing Vetrol helicopter, "the smaller Chinook", CH-46 Sea Knight. Here in UH (utility version) as used by US Navy in 60s and 70s. Here you can see the exact color scheme I tried to mimic: This model was almost entirely bulit during spring of 2017. But then DA came and I was unable to find time and motivation to buy some needed parts and finish it. But here it is, the big moment for this heli!

  6. From the first time I saw the theme for this Lego Technic contest, I was intrigued by it and wanted to give it a try, but it had to be a biplane. I have a soft spot for these aircrafts, after seeing them in many documentaries and old Hollywood movies. And after some time on the world wide web, I was hooked on the striking blue/yellow color combination on the Boeing Stearman Model 75. It's basically a military trainer aircraft built starting from 1934, in the United States. More than 10k were built until 1940, and after the WWII, they were sold to civilians. This was a great move, cause they were used as crop dusters, then as sport and acrobatic planes used in air shows. Around 1500 are still in use today, and many are at display in museums around the world. But enough of this, you can read more about it and see real photos on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boeing-Stearman_Model_75 I tried my best to replicate the sleek lines of this marvelous biplane, while including relevant functions, such as: Functions: - motorized rotor - working ailerons (front) - working elevators (back) - functional tail rudder Technical Specs: Scale: 1:19 Weight: 956g Lenght: 46cm Wing span: 52cm Height: 18cm As the model is finished, see some representative photos here: So guys, I managed to get the stickers on, so here is the final model: See more detailed photos on my Flickr account: https://www.flickr.com/photos/braker23/albums/72157705259798851/with/46179286365/ Video is done and online, let me know what you think about functions: Thank you all for your time!
  7. 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,

    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
