It will be a front shovel or a excavator or both. My challenge is not to have reference, I want to do it strong and playable with the less pieces I can. I started with the tracks and it was not easy at all... all the weight rest over the six small wheels to have less friction on the track gears and you can take off easy the turntable, each undercarriage and the center part. I would like to know if the small tracks will be a good idea to move the machine, I think I will have to do a test with a lot of weight to test it. I did not like at all the 42100 tracks because they are too big I wanted mine just 9 studs high. I still have a lot of work to do so I am quite happy.
Hi, all, I was planning to make a pneumatic front shovel excavator after buying 42053. Combining with the pneumatic parts of 42043, I'll have enough big cylinders for the excavator. It will be a pretty big one and fully RC is a good choice. Since this contest forbidding using PF other than driving the pumps, I chose to build a smaller one using the V1 pneumatic parts. Planned functions: 1 x L motor for pump(s) 2 x V1 big cylinders for the boom 1 x V2 thin cylinder for the stick 2 x V1 big cylinders for the bucket tilting The number of pumps and how to open the bucket are not decided yet. I aim to build this: Liebherr R9800, but it may end to a smaller type since that will look more proper at a small scale. The current progress: Advices are always welcome. Thanks for watching
