  1. This ship is an advanced type that was built for the Futuron Corp. However, only one out of the hundreds built was ever painted green, as it was for the CEO of the company. This specific one was nicknamed the Futuron Flyer, and was used by the CEO and two of his successors, until the Blacktron III wiped out most of the Futuron forces off the galactic map. The rest of the fleet and it's personnel were put into cryo-sleep years ago and sent randomly jumping around the galaxy until such time the Blacktron menace was eradicated. The CEO at that time sent his ship with him on-board to the Galactic Council to let them have the secret call signal for the eventual return of the fleet when needed. Unfortunately, Haley's Comet intervened, crashing into the Flyer and killing the CEO, but not before he gave the code and a mission to deliver it to a local alien inhabitant. Only time will tell if it is ever delivered to it's proper destination.... This ship is actually a MOD of set 7133, Bounty Hunter Pursuit from the 2002 Star wars line. It has been repainted green and white with a Jack Stone piece used as a canopy. I lack proper Futuron figures (especially the recent green one!), so this Star wars alien fills in. I've been dying to build this ship with this cockpit piece since the Jack Stone set came out in 2003. Thanks to LDD, I have finally built it.... 15 years later! The rear of the ship has large jets on it.... why, you may ask? The ship needed an obvious means of propulsion and these spare parts fit the bill. The cockpit (which is from Jack Stone set 4653, Dump truck) opens up to reveal the ship's controls. This enigmatic figure is a native of Haley's Comet and was entrusted with the signal to retrieve the Futuron forces from hyper space after the death of the original ship's owner, the CEO of Futuron Corp. As usual, comments, questions, complaints, and suggestions are always welcome!
  2. This is the second mod I have done to Lego's 42056 Porsche 911 GT3 RS set. I used the same height lift as I used on my previous Porsche mod and moved forward the bottom arms in the front and the rear of the chassis to add negative camber. The car was able to roll without the body on, but once I put it on, it couldn't roll. This means the car is now purely a display model. As much as a JDM fanboy I am, I'm kind of upset with the result of the car not moving, but at least I'm glad that I stanced this car anyways just for the fun of it. Although, quote automotive YouTuber GasKings, the camber angle does seem a bit too much on here like "a baby giraffe taking its first steps." So, what do you think of this mod I have done? Is it CamberGang worthy? I think it looks neat, but I would like to get rid of the camber (and the height lift) so I can roll this car around again. Here's some more pictures of the car I took. Thanks as always for checking this out, and I hope you'll stick around for my next builds.

  4. [MOC] Datsun 240Z

    Also called the Nissan Fairlady Z.
  5. From 1919 to 1962, the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific Railroad (known as the Milwaukee Road) had these five General Electric-made behemoths pulling trains under the wires from Chicago to Seattle. They were called the Bipolar's for each of the locomotive's 12 motors had only two field poles, mounted directly to the locomotive frame beside the axle. The motor armature was mounted directly on the axle, providing an entirely gear-less design. These locos were so powerful they could out-pull modern steam locos, and what used to take two steamers took just one bipolar. However, after a disastrous 1953 rebuilding by the railroad's company shops (who had no clue how to work on a electric loco) the engines were prone to failures and even fire. And so, in 1962, four of them were scrapped with the lone survivor, numbered E-2, towed to the Museum of Transportation in St. Louis Missouri, where it has sat silent even since, as seen above. The LEGO version of the locomotive was inspired by a 1999 version of the Bipolar electric locomotive built by user legosteveb. I recreated the actual orange, red and black color scheme used on the loco when it emerged from the 1953 modernization program, but it was too expensive. So, after looking around I decided to use the paint scheme the Milwaukee Road used when the engine was donated. This yellow and red scheme was inspired by the Union Pacific and was adopted very late in the engine's career (mid-50's to it's retirement in 1962). The engine pictured is E2, which is the only Bipolar left in existence as the rest were scrapped. (NOTE: The black number board on both the front and the rear should say "E2" in printed 1 x 1 tiles.) The loco frame is split in three sections as per the original engine. The front and rear section can pivot slightly to make the engine go around curves. Since the last uploading of this model, the wheels have been re-arranged into two groups of seven (they are joined near the end of the frame, with the exact middle section floating freely between the two ends) and the body of the engine has been extended for a total magnet-to-magnet length of 70 studs. This side view of the locomotive has my 4-10-4 steam engine to compare against. As you can see, it's my longest single locomotive yet designed with 14 axles total. (I'm not 100% sure my articulation attempts in all the boogies and the frame were enough to work on standard LEGO track, but I guess I'll just have to see when it's built in real bricks latter this year!) The passenger train, and the rear car in particular, were inspired by the Milwaukee Road's Olympian Hiawatha service from Tacoma, Washington to with the rearmost car being a Beaver Tail observation car, which were out of service by 1961. (you can read more about these odd-looking cars here on this Wikipedia page.) So the window of use for this train's real world counterpart is very narrow: 1955 - 1961 is the outer limit of these two elements being used together. (Actually, I'm not sure the Beaver-tails were ever used all the way to the West Coast on the Olympian, but since it's LEGO, who really cares!) Here we can see the whole train I plan on building soon with the engine being almost as long as three passenger cars! That's all I have done for now, and as usual, questions, complaints, comments and suggestions are always welcome! (real life pictures coming to this topic as soon as possible.)
  6. [MOC] Lotus/Caterham 7 (mini)

    A Lotus/Caterham 7, inspired by MOCs seen elsewhere. I think a minifig can be squeezed into the cockpit but I haven't built it yet. LDD file at my Bricksafe page.
  7. [MOC] Tiny Turbos, anyone?

    Hello folks! Tiny Turbos - does anyone remember this somewhat hit-and-miss Racers theme? Despite its discontinuation, moderately small interest in the 4-wide scale still persists on Flickr and MOCpages, and new pieces released are fueling fresh ideas among builders, myself included. One may find building a tiny car a very fun and rewarding experience - the key point to keep in mind is avoiding the overly dull and generic results, which sadly happens on many an occasion. Now, I am not too familiar with MOCpages, but this Flickr pool is a great place to start if you're looking for inspiration. Normally I wouldn't bother with creating a separate topic for such a car myself, instead turning to Flickr, but this one is somewhat special. Since I was building for a contest, I went all-out on it, made a bunch of renders and maximised the capabilities of virtual MOCing. The car is made up using exactly 60 pieces, and as far as I can tell should be adequately sturdy IRL. I used Metallic Sand Purple, which is a beautiful official colour that can be found (by legal means) within the depths of LDD. Rendered using Bluerender. Under-the-hood trickery included! Some obligatory animation, for there is no better way to showcase a car. A couple more "panoramic" images. Hope you enjoyed your stay and feel free to join in the fun! .)
  8. VW beetle Sport/Classic 1970

    Just finished my first moc.. a vw beetle in two versions: Sport and classic. A while ago I bought a lego speed champion box for my son and I directly felt in love with lego and the small cars. So I bought 6 other speedchampion boxes... lego isnt cheap :-( ... but the fun was TOP ! As webdesigner/computer(linux)nerd :-) it isnt so difficult to understand mecabricks.com (design/workshop page) and quickly I enjoyed it :-) So here is my first moc, hope you like it. I need to buy some bricks to create the same car... mine is blue black and missing some pieces (see last pictures).
  9. 1:17 Tesla Roadster 2020

    G'Day everyone, I'm Avanish Shrestha from Australia, currently at uni. It hasn't been too long since I started sharing some creations with the Lego community—but here's the first one from 2018, a Tesla Roadster, previewed at an event in November 2017. I hope you enjoy! Franz von Holzhausen—Chief Designer. Credits to Rolands Kirpis for the door hinge design.
  10. After seeing lots of different takes on the Land Rover (of various eras) I was inspired to design a minifig-scale version of the Series 2 for my nascent 1950s British village. LDD instructions are available here: https://bricksafe.com/pages/Zetroc
  11. (sorry for my bad english) I'm thinking which suspension type should I use for my race car. I'm doing it outta LEGO Mindstorms (NXT/EV3). It's suposed to be RWD (with differencial) car for racing on flat surface. But on the the track the is one jump - it has 15 cm (or 5.9 inch). And I need suspension that is going to be light, kinda robust (it has to survive fall from 15 cm (5.9 inch) and also simple. I was using multilink suspension in the back and something like McPherson in the front, but it didn't worked as i wanted. So I'm thinking about using still multilink in the back, but double wishbone suspension in the front. (I'm using soft springs because car weights 850 g (or 1.87 lbs)). What do you thing is it allright or should I change it, or are there some bad sites of this two types of suspension ?
  12. Here's my replica MOC of 42056 set: Porsche 911 GT3 RS in medium scale You can see many references to original set design and the Power Function system. Check the video: The model has: - PF: 2L, Servo, IRv2, LiPo - Full independent suspension - Floating differential at the rear - Opening doors, bonnet, trunk - Adjustable seats. The car is a pleasure to drive: It is quite fast and manoeuvre. Building Instructions: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-12532/paave/porsche-911-gt3-rs/
  13. [MOC] Army Infantry Vehicle

    Hi Everybody, I want to show you my LEGO Army Infantry Combat Vehicle:
  14. After a grueling 10 hour dual build with my Brother Dugald, we have successfully completed a proper C-Model for the 42077 Lego Rally car. The car can have all the motors easily removed and an HOG steering can been added for a proper C-model. We managed to create completely new suspension, most notably the front suspension tuned in by none other that @DugaldIC with Ackerman steering :) This video was filmed with a Buwizz 2.0, 1 M-motor for drive that powers boxer V6 and servo. This build uses 100% of the parts from the rally car. (with option of adding or removing motors) Rebrickable: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-12233/Loxlego/1970-porsche-can-am-42077-rally-car-c-model/#parts 1970 Porsche Can Am by lachlan cameron, on Flickr 1970 Porsche Can Am by lachlan cameron, on Flickr 1970 Porsche Can Am by lachlan cameron, on Flickr 1970 Porsche Can Am by lachlan cameron, on Flickr Inspiration: 1970 Porsche Can Am - inspiration by lachlan cameron, on Flickr
  15. Hi Everybody, I want to show you my Instruction Tutorial, which shows, how you can build the Red Fury Racer, known from Cartoon Saber Rider Star Sheriffs:
  16. It was time to rework my old Interceptor with newer parts, and I like the shaping a hell of a lot more this time around. It's WIP since the guts are all placeholder bits, but the shell looks good enough to post. •Raised the rear by 1 plate for an aggressive stance •Rear windscreen can be lifted off So far so good. I managed to work in the red light near the rear bumper by simply leaving the side of the [1x2 trans-red plate] exposed. Next comes reworking the guts to make them stable. Suggestions welcome!
  17. Hello everyone! Before my dark ages Johnny Thunder was one of my favourite lines. Here is my half track based on that line. This is my first non-technic moc since very long time. Thanks :) IMG_0508 by Wiktor Boroń, on Flickr IMG_0506 by Wiktor Boroń, on Flickr IMG_0507 by Wiktor Boroń, on Flickr IMG_0509 by Wiktor Boroń, on Flickr IMG_0510 by Wiktor Boroń, on Flickr IMG_0504 by Wiktor Boroń, on Flickr
  18. This is Lego's 42056 Porsche 911 GT3 RS set with some unique rallycross-inspired features I added making it the perfect sports car to drive in the snow. Features Suspension system raised to make the car about two studs higher Wheels and tires from the 42037 Formula Off-Roader Mudflaps LED light bar Front off-road lights Rear bash bars Optional snowplow that attaches to the front The lights are fake and don't turn on, and all of the other lime-colored pieces are from the 42037 set as well. I had a lot of fun making this. I just had to switch of the area of the springs to change the height for the rear without any pieces needed, but for the front, I had to remove the entire Porsche's body to make the lift there using a variety of pieces. Overall, I'm proud that a got the result I wanted, which was making the Porsche 911 GT3 RS higher (so it wouldn't bottom out) and equipping it with off-road features so I could have fun with this set in the winter. It does need to drive in snow only about an inch high so I could move it without getting stuck (and so the plow can move the snow too). I recommend to anyone who has the Porsche set to try these mods out for themselves this winter! Here's some more pictures of the car and a desktop wallpaper that I created wishing everyone at EuroBricks Happy Holidays!
  19. Camellia Café presents a special designed Crab Robotics Car model being controlled by Camellia CAPPUCCINO servo motor controller with ARM technology. Each wheel has an individual LEGO motor to drive wheel running speed, distance, time and direction. And each wheel has another individual LEGO servo motor to steer it in a precise angle. Thus 8 LEGO motors are used. Normal: Run forward, backward, or turn Traverse: Run in traverse as a crab with wheels 90 degrees Spin: Spin with wheels 45 degrees Motor: Wheel self-driven motor Motor: Wheel steering motor When turning each wheel in a special degree. It will very easy to turn left or turn right in a short radius. As each wheel has an individual motor to drive it, it is powerful. I think this is a real, real, real four wheel drive car. As each wheel driven motor is a servo motor, it could run in a preset distance. It can run in traverse just like a crab. This is why we name it after crab. Consider all, it is more than a car. It is also a robot. This is why we also name it after robotics. Please drive this Crab Robotics Car. Just make you own robot at home. http://www.camellia.xin/models/crabcar.html
  20. Police Pursuit Vehicle

    For the Lego City police theme, I wanted create a unique design of police car and to propose it as a potential Lego product dedicated to the theme, present for many years. If you like this Lego creation, you can support the project on Lego Ideas to become a future lego set: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/f3990555-db09-4bcc-b4b2-8a22f141a774 The car: This model is inspired by the american police cars. Composed of 275 pieces. _A new concept for the Lego city car: Carry three figurines and their accessories. Driver and passenger in the front cabin and one minifig in the prisoner compartment. New doors, roof and trunk, openable. The doors are closed with a slight "click". _Unprecedented driving position: Improved steering wheel, speedometer, centre console with gear lever and cup holder, radio and VHF (new decorated plate) _Carriage of accessories that are stowed and easily accessible: On the front cabin: binoculars, soda can and gun. In the trunk: rifle, talkie and laptop computer. _typical equipment for police interceptor car: Push bar, projector, light bar, and radio antenna. _Evolving model: It is possible to turn it into a police speedboat with almost all pieces of the set. See the last pictures in my Flickr galerie. Why create this model? To offer a unique model for the Lego City police theme, by proposing an idea little or not exploited, which is the possibility to take two minifigs in front-seat of the car, by staying in reasonable size of current Lego products of the theme with a solid structure, enough realism, while giving other realistic functions. The model was realized with Lego Digital Designer and tested in real bricks to find the best assembly with current pieces.
  21. Electric Racer

    The race car of the future :-) I originally built this for a ReBrick contest a while ago, now I'm trying to get supporters on LEGO Ideas. I hope you liked, C&C is appreciated. (Support for my Ideas project even more ;-))
  22. Here is my best attempt to build the Lego Batman Movie Police Car. Thanks to badchriss for his rendition, helped a lot. I did my best to study every screen shot in the movie, there is a color variation on the steering wheel of either black or light bluish gray. The trunk hinges do not come in medium blue nor do the panels that make it up, so I modified it to get the same look basically, but it doesn't open. This is my first attempt to upload a link thru dropbox for the LDD file if anyone is interested. If it doesn't work let me know. I'm in the process of building it this way so no guarantees until I am done. Also working on the Taxi Cab next. https://www.dropbox.com/s/2mqucftxuh57ts6/TLBM Police Car Complete.lxf?dl=0
