  1. The Volvo FMX is an oddly styled truck, its bulldog nose like design stood out to me instantly. Having an inherent weakness for the odd I decided to build one all the way back in 2015. Four years later I proudly present my latest model :). Developing the Palfinger crane took the better half of the development time for this model. In order to house all the electronics necessary a flatbed truck design was chosen with 4 axles, 2 under the bed and 2 to support the crane and cabin. The crane is operated by 3 servo-controlled pneumatic switches, the newer style switch allowed me to build this more compact than we ever could! The Pneumatic cylinders for the extension sections have been modified to allow for a more realistic reach. Two original cylinders were cut and acetone welded together for each one of them. The compressor is powered by an L motor and assisted by a rubber band to reach the pressures necessary to operate the crane. The crane is able to reach the back of the bed, as was my goal, but isn't able to lift much anymore then, the limit of pneumatic control is really stretched when a single-cylinder needs to push an arm of 30+cm on a point 5 studs away from the pivot point. With all this functionality, details are fun but also frustrating to add. Two tiny tool compartments have been fitted on the rear of the truck stowing away lifting equipment. The engine is only built for the upper 2/3 to accommodate for the suspended axles and steering mechanisms. The model is also fitted with a full custom led kit. A custom electronics board with an Arduino pro mini takes the signals from the Sbricks and converts them into turn signals, driving lights, hazard lights and much much more. More can be seen on the Flickr album and in the Youtube video!

    [MOC] Mack LMSW - GVB 1:16

    After using too much time to build models that are way to big. I decided to build something more parts and wallet friendly. My heart fell for the LMSW 6x4 Wrecker which was put in use in WWII by the Canadian and British forces. After the war the vehicles were exported all over the world. One of them was put to use by the public transport company GVB in Amsterdam, Holland. This Lego recreation is build in scale 1:16 and is remote controlled with Sbrick. Using one XL motor for drive and a servo motor for steering. The cranes are build for looks rather then functionality. They can swivel and the hook can be lowered. The angle of the arms however is fixed. Building for looks the model has a complete detailed interieur with suspended seating, steering wheel, dashboard with gauges and all the levers a trucker can wish for. The interesting crane system used in the rear intrigued me to do the build. A really simple system for the stabilizers using chains and pins combined with two swiveling arms controlled by steel wires. The model is complete with tool and hardware boxes on the rear deck. A jack was transported with the truck in case Amsterdam bikers were trapped under the trams . PS, yes the rims are painted black.
  3. Custom produced by FTF (Floor Truck Factory) using components from around the world, the truck was first put in use in 1989 by the Roseboom company. After switching owners and company the truck is nowadays beautifully restored in his old glory. After finding images of the restoration I fell in love with the color scheme and the challenge was set to build this beauty of a truck. Tan, red, sand green and dark green - Flickr The cabin tilts to reveal the V8 detroit diesel engine - Flickr Fully detailed interieur - Flickr The truck is combined with a Scheuerle EuroCombi Hauling a humongous dark red beam. The final model is build with full suspension, working fifth wheel, opening doors, cabin tilt and remote controlled with Sbrick. The trailer has a mechanical steering controlled by the two turntables the beam rests on and a detachable and operatabel gooseneck Dark red combines perfectly with the truck in my opinion - Flickr Yes, it is a long truck.... - Flickr The trailer comes fully equipped with extra weight and tools - Flickr Most of the details have been taken care of - Flickr PS, Yes the rims are painted.
  4. FINALLY after 16 months have I been able to finish my McLaren MP4-12C. For now this was my most challenging project ever. Technical it was a piece of cake, just a 3+R gearbox, but to get the whole thing modular and to get the body look like the real thing was really troublesome. The Functions: Steering, 3+R gearbox, Butterfly wing doors, Fully modular. The complete album can be found HERE MOVIE! :D 15 Dollars at mocplans
