Good day. For a long time I wanted to create a moc with various functions apart from steering and drive. Overview: -4x4 drive with 2 diffs -3 steering modes : rear only, crab and all-wheel steering -Boom ascention -Boom extention -Forks tilting -part count of approximately 1000 pieces The forks on the end of the boom were able to be replaced with another attachment by pulling out two 8l axles with stop. The cabin has on openable door , adjustable seat and a lever to switch steering modes. The steering is a very basic type, the front stering motor is attached to a switch , which neutralizes it's movement or decides the direction of steering. the boom is extended through a pulley system , which was done due to lack of 4 stud gearracks. total boom size being fully extended is of 60 studs. The video below shows basic functionality. Something I learned with this build is that I should stick with smaller size mocs and not to rush into medium sized model. All photos here
Hi everyone. Here is my entry for this contest. As always i've build this with/for my childrens and as usual this model hass to be safe and secure for them. This said, i've been asking for long what to build for this contest. I didn't have that much pneumatics elements and i do thought that my chances with this contest were proportionals to the number of pneumatic parts i owned. Until i had a closer look at 42053 set... So i present here my vision of what could be a Volvo Handler (i think volvo didn't build this kind of machine) here it is: it is a very simple Moc. My main goal has been to integrate the powerfunctions elements (1 BB + 1 motor) and get the maximum playability with the Moc. I do use the battery pack as the main frame assembly of the model. this way, i think i realised one good design work on it. They are 3 pneumatics functions: 1- Main arm up and down 2- Fork tilting 3 - Fork thooth up and down. Also, there is one direction with HOG on the four wheels.This Moc is designed to be playable and fun to use. It doesn't need more function to scratch that goal ;) The functions work pretty well and the compressor is a very pleasant feature on a Moc like this one. The arm movement has a good range of action and is particulary powerfull due to the large pneumatics cylinder i used. ( i didn't have any other o:) ) Here is a back view. round design for the mudgards, a color scheme that fits with it's great sister 45053, custon stikers (official stikers sheet): On this view you can see the commands (3 orange commands) : the two backwards are for the arm movement and the lateral one is for the fork opening Detailed view of the fork i used. It is obvisouly possible to connect a regular bucket at this arm end: And once it is opened Detailed view on back design with the official Volvo stikers on it and the rounded mudgards In conclusion this Moc come perfectly together the 42053 Set and as well with my last Volvo crane truck. It was a great building experience (and realy quick build :) ) Hope you'll enjoy it. Regards, Steph Ps video coming hopefully before the dateline :)
