  1. Just finished my first almost-Moc - a clumsy attempt at making a tow truck. The cabin is a complete rip-off of the Arocs - by the time I got to that building stage I was drained and just wanted to get it done. Furthermore, by mounting the Arocs cabin I was able to assess how half-baked the rest of the truck looks in comparison. I also stole some ideas from D3K but didn't pull them off even half as well. Please forgive the atrocious pics - it's the best I can get out of my lousy phone. http://bricksafe.com...ds/my-first-moc Features: - 8x4 - pendular suspension on all axles - proportional steering on front axles - side and back outriggers - tow fork - tilting cabin - 360° rotating crane - fake engine (straight 6) - pole reverser The truck is driven by 2 XL motors, with 1 M motor for steering. The other functions are driven by 1 L motor; six are activated via three selectors near the back, whereas the crane is controlled via another two selectors on the crane itself. I didn't have the foresight to include an anti-roll bar - hence, whenever the truck negotiates a curve it tilts and jams. Lesson learnt - I'll rebuild the whole thing once I figure out how to work the anti-roll bar into the very limited available space. I also need to rework the geartrain, since a few of the functions are a tad too fast. Any tips on pendular axles with anti-roll bars and on how to make the truck look less like a bubble truck would be greatly appreciated =) Cheers! P.S.: Massive props to D3K - I hope you read this, mate, because your work was a huge inspiration and really kept me going even when I was about to give up.
