Hello all, I would like to present a new project. It's a rotary drilling rig based on the Liebherr LB44 and based on the chassis of the lego technic crawler crane 42042 Here are some WIP pictures, I used the carriage (with some mods) and part of the superstructure (mainly the gearbox) of the 42042 because it's quite a good design and starting point. I already have put a reduction gear on the upper LA's (not visible in the pictures) because with the direct link the motor was not able to lift the boom. On the real machine the winches are located on the boom, but on my machine I will use the existing winches of the 42042. Also the driveshaft of the upper LA's will be modified to make it a bit stronger. Next picture is the boom in a more or less rest-transport position As always comments are always welcome.
Location: D10 - Hamilton Belt Tags: Vehicle, Military Log #004 – 12 Novembrinali 3815 I've been absent for months... Let's say I overslept when I was in hibernation... Together with Oswald, an assistent and co pilot of mine, we're assigned to the new Robo Drill Truck program. Our jobs are to see If nothing goes wrong and meanwhile scout ahead for space pirates or unfriendly aliens that want to put a hold on our program. The RDT's work very fluently for their first job. Their AI is very keen yet straigt forward; they keep track of undiscovered Awesomnium and drill and collect where nescessary. Oswald's seems to be serious, but he has some humor as well. He's stating why I don't wear the orange suit, hence my family name. He's also wondering why there are no robots taking our duties of guarding and exploring. I'd rather trust humans then military AI programs that can go haywire by a virus or overcomplicated and riducilous reasoning. Maybe turning against us, you know... Oh and by the way, I congratulated Agent Raven as the new CEO with her job! You can do It, Raven! More information and pictures under the spoiler tag:
