  1. Currently I'm bulding a Lego version of the Case Quadtrac 620 in 1:16. It's mainly built in Studio, but tested several mechanism to make sure things are working as expected. Haven't assembled everything yet, exept the tracks and an early version of the rear frame. I'll likely build it after i finished organising my lego parts (haven't done that for years). Here you can find some early sketches from 2008. Since then (and after a long dark age) quite a lot has changed. Even during the last couple of weeks. For a quick impression, this is the current state: Here you can see some more rendered images and screenshots. My goal is to get as close as possible to the original. That includes function, geometry and look. Planned and partially done is the following: Remote controlled with two SBricks and powered by Legos rechargeable battery box Driven by one or two large motors (hard coupled), speed should match 1:16 of the original max speed (40km/h) Steering done with two small actuators and controlled with one large motor (mainly because of the many pin holes for connecting it to the frame) Suspended cabin Front light Openable bonnet Authentic connection between front and rear unit, means no turn table Oscillation between rear and front unit PTO driven by one medium motor located in the front unit 3-point hitch lifted by two small pneumatic Motorized compressor (Mini Motor 71427, located in the rear unit ) for 3-point hitch Motorized switch (medium motor, located in the rear unit) for 3-point hitch Realistically oscillating tracks Spring-supported track tensioner Suspended rollers (these three rollers in the middle) Optional: Full lightning like the original Optional: Maybe a gearbox, but I'm afraid there will be no space left One of the challenges is to fit everything inside the frame, which is 9 studs wide. That leaves 7 studs. Questions, comments and criticism are more than welcome.
  2. REVIEW - 75192 - MILLENNIUM FALCON - STAND AND DISPLAY CASE INTRODUCTION After building the new UCS Millennium Falcon, I was looking for a way to display it. In the past I have visited the Pure Display website, because they are making all kinds of cool display cases, not only for LEGO models (collectibles). Recently they launched the website which is dedicated to LEGO models and collectibles. When I finished building the Falcon, they only had the horizontally placed display case, also used for the 10179. When I contacted Pure Display asking them for a vertically placed display case, I got into contact with Steve Chan. I sent him an Efferman stand and he got cracking. After a while, he showed the display case AND a stand to go with it. In this review I will show you what it's all about. But not before I thank Steve for the pleasant contact we had and providing me with one of the first new cases and stands. CONTENTS OF THE BOX Given the size of the display case, the box obviously needs to be pretty big. Everything is nicely packed with bubble protection. After getting rid of the bubbles, we are left with some acrylic plates. Don't be scared off by the blue color. That's just the protective coating, which we need to remove. This "set" also comes with instructions, just like the model it will contain. Albeit, way less pages than the Falcon itself. Instructions are easy to follow. Actually, you probably won't need them at all, since building the case is very much self-explanatory. STAND HORIZONTALLY The cool thing about the stand is, that it has two modes, horizontally and vertically. Below is a picture of horizontal mode. The areas where the model will be resting on the stand are nicely protected with rubber clips. The panels of the stand are securely connected using screws. Unlike the Falcon, the stand won't fall apart when moving. More on that later. This is how the Falcon is positioned in horizontal mode. There's a slight angle, which makes it look totally awesome. And a picture from the rear. I absolutely love this position. STAND VERTICALLY The second mode is the vertical mode. The Falcon is placed at a different angle, which allows for displaying it with less footprint. As you can see my copy of the stand came with an iron patter in it What happens when you are alone in the house and you want to change the display from horizontal to vertical mode, and the landing struts aren't attached to the Falcon. Well, you grab the falcon in one hand and you try to turn the display stand. Which works perfectly fine, until you miss the attachment point when placing it back on the stand. Then you lose control and all kinds of unwanted events occur :P Luckily, this isn't a crash, but a controlled landing. I managed to put the Falcon down, but unlike the movies, the Falcon did suffer severe damage. Let's say the Force wasn't strong with this one. At that point I called a friend. We reassembled the hunk of junk and put it on the display together. Be careful when you do this alone. It's better to have someone assist you. So, here it is, placed vertically. As you can see, it takes up less space when placed like this. For me, this is the ideal setup, since my cabinet isn't that big. And it does look rather impressive. This definitely results in some oooohhhhs and ahhhhhs. DISPLAY CASE Of course, my initial mission was having it in a display case. Low and behold! I would love to make some scenery at the bottom, to make it more lively. But this has nothing to do with the display case, which is absolutely magnificent. The model is nicely protected from dust...and childrens touching it Yes, it is big and you need to have a spot for this bad boy. But when you have room for it, I can definitely recommend getting a this case. PRICE What do these products cost? The stand costs 48 GBP. The display case costs 162 GBP. Both excluding shipping costs. THE VERDICT This solution definitely doesn't come cheap. However, if you are looking for a professional display solution to protect your precious Falcon, this definitely is a great product. I highly recommend it, if you don't mind forking out the cash. I also have the Ghostbusters HQ display case and I absolutely love both products. I will definitely get some more display cases from Pure Display in the future! Thanks you for reading this review. All pictures can be found here.
  3. This is a MOC I have made based off of the steiger line of tractors. I have decided to put this project on Lego Ideas, and was hoping many you could support it. I am striving for this to become a Lego set. I do understand that there is less of a chance for this to become a Lego set because it is Technic. I would appreciate no negative comments about this Technic creation being on Lego ideas. Only constructive criticism please. If you could share this around, or just support it. Every supporter counts! Here are a few pictures of the model: Link: This MOC functions include: Lights All wheel drive Articulated steering Working steering wheel Openable hood to reveal a in-line 6 engine Working PTO A VIdeo of the Tractor: Thanks for the comments and support!
  4. Having only started collecting LEGO minifigures about 18 months ago. I have about 200 so far. I do not know exactly how many because they are all over the place. I have tried making up stands like the excellent design by Splat but in the end it worked out increasingly expensive as the 4x1x1 Brick W Bow became more and more elusive. So I'm interested in what many of you members are using to display your collection. I know the IKEA Ribba frame is popular but it doesn't allow you easy access to the figures and not expandable. I got a couple of the official LEGO minifigure display cases but even they are now discontinued. I recently saw the case below online but the only place I found available in the UK is from Smyths Toys: But at £30 each for the large one, it seems very expensive. Has anyone here got one? Is it stackable with the original LEGO minifigure case? I like it because it will minimise the dreaded dust problem.
  5. Hi, Here is my version of a Case Steiger Quadtrac Tractor. In fact, this is only a first try, there will be a second version at least. I wanted to start building while I had the ideas, so here it is. Driving via XL, steering via servo. Here's a video of the first tests and a few pictures: The full review is here: http://bj51creations...r-quadtrac.html
