Here is my first supercar MOC, a 1:8 scale model of the famous Lancia Stratos rally car. It comes in two flavors; Alitalia (tutti fruitti) livery and (for those willing to part-out 8x 42045) the +1 Racing version entered in the Elba rally of 1977. It features: Opening doors and front and rear clamshells 4 wheel independent suspension (which is very similar to 42039). HOG steering that is removable and connected to the wheel in the cockpit (see youtube clip) Pop-up headlights and removable auxiliary Lamps. A 4-Speed gearbox that sits under the transverse V6 and has a remote linkage to the gear stick in the cockpit. Here is a flickr video of the linkage being tested. and the gearbox working in the chassis. Many more photos on my flickr page along with some pictures of a failed attempt at an all blue version (Blue Stratos). +1 Racing 08 by James Tillson, on Flickr Here is a video of the original 2 speed version. The LDD file of this version now on rebrickable http://rebrickable.c...-lancia-stratos (Thank you Rishab N). A jpeg of the stickers is also available, just send me a PM with your email.
After my fork rake and the tractor I present you the AROCS SCV:pRC - Specialized Construction Vehicle: partially Remote Controlled Today I would like to present my modification of the Lego 42043 MB AROCS to you. Yes, the setup is unusual for a typical construction truck. I decided to choose this setup because I like the crane setup from the old 8868 truck. The room between the specialized setup, which is inspired by the 8868 crane cabin, got filled with a side tipping bed. I moved the original tipping bed to the trailer. But first, let me tell you what functions it has inside and which of them can be controlled by RC. 1) RC package, supplied by one AA battery box: Driving (XL-Motor, RC) Steering (Servo, RC) Supporting stand (L-Motor, 2 small linear actuators RC) Tipping (L-Motor, 1 big linear actuator for each tipping bed, RC, switching between the two tipping beds possible through gearbox) The RC functions are limited to functions needed while driving the truck or getting ready for working with the clamshell. Because of the heavy weight of this model and the strong XL-Motor I had to replace the cv-joint with a cardan joint. 2) Clamshell package, supplied by one AA battery box: Compressor (shares the M-Motor with the rotation) Rotation (shares the M-Motor with the compressor) The rotation of the clamshell setup can be changed or stopped through the red lever, which you can see on the right side, slightly under the cabin. If you switch on the battery box the M-Motor will run permanently and so will the compressor do. Only the rotation can be turned off through the gearbox. All functions of the clamshell setup are integrated, so there is no cable or tube running through the turntable to the truck. There is no limited turning radius.
