Spent the last few days using spare blue parts to make this mech. Decided to go with a water theme since it was blue. And why not a trident? And a giant fan thingy? Lemme know what you think. Last photo is a bit grainy cause the sun was going down :p
This model is basically two different "okay" fire boat sets smashed together to make a "better" ship. The features I'm talking about are modern upper decks with plenty of fire-fighting power (represented by CITY set 7207), and a brick built hull like from the early series of ships. (as seen on set WORLD City 7046) As a side note, The printed parts are from another Fire Station from the 4 Juniors theme. (4657) With that in mind, I built a whole new hull for the ship out of mostly 2 x 10 and 2 x 8 bricks with a few fancy bow parts from set 7046 thrown in. The rest of the ship comes from set 7207, but with a few tweaks here and there. (such as adding a smokestack and rear water tank) The rear of the ship features an extendable and rotatable water cannon arm to get deep inside the burning hull of the imaginary ship this vessel is fighting to save. You can also see the smaller cannons scattered around the ship in several locations. The top of the ship's bridge flips open to reveal the command center of the model, with the steering wheel and several computer readouts telling of power supplied to the engines and of radar detected objects in the ship's path. The lower deck consists of the galley (or kitchen) and a quite large computer terminal array. The forward flip-up section features water pressure monitor controls. NOTES: The upper deck (the bridge) is grouped separately in the file because it is removable to access the ship's lower level. Also, I originally made this for my brother, but he changed his mind on it, so I'll be (eventually) building it instead. And thanks to user BrickWild who provided the LDD file to begin this model in the "official sets made in ldd" topic: http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=41226 LDD file: http://www.moc-pages...1470680805m.lxf PRINTED PARTS: The smokestack should have two of these: http://www.bricklink...Color=5#T=C&C=5 The water tank should have this print: http://www.bricklink...Color=5#T=C&C=5 The forward flip-up window section should be this part: http://www.bricklink...Color=5#T=C&C=5 As usual, comments, questions, and complaints would be very welcome! EDIT: ship majorly updated and LDD file amended as well. Enjoy!
PKW posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingHi to all! waiting to the sun to film the RC Dawnbreaker I've edited and posted an old video that I've made to test my battle bots: crab and scorpion. During the video me and my cousin were talking in italian but don't worry: i've added some subtitles just to translate our wisecracks ;) Some stats about the robots: GRANCHIO (crab) weight: 900g weapons: claws motors: 2 XL(wheels) 2L(claws) strengths: 4x4, can keep the ball weaknesses: (hardly) flippable SCORPIONE(scorpion) weight: 900g weapons: flipping arm motors: 2 M (wheels) 1 L (reloading winch) 1 old 9V (gearbox) strenghts: atomic-like powerful weapon, defensive/offensive weapon weaknesses: hard to control (really), low traction enjoy the video (likes and comments are welcome if you like it ;) )
