  1. Dear Lego Technic engineers, I’ll take this time to present to you my latest and most serious MOC. Challenger MT800E tractor. I got my inspiration from the FS17 game I’m playing, where is one of my favorites. I spent a month developing it, I didn’t rush it, I took my time, and it turned out quite ok (at least I think so). I wanted it to be a Claas Xerion contender. So it’s built in the same scale as Claas. I tried to replicate it as close as possible to the real thing, so I implemented the same features as on the real tractor. Same shape front weights, the position of the mirrors, lights, stairs and hand rails. Big tractor deserves a big exhaust. By the way, not all of them have front hitch, mine does. Front and rear view By the pure looks of it, it set itself apart from other tractors out there (both real and Lego). And it’s controlled by S-brick, because I didn’t want chunky and clunky Lego RC receivers sticking out of the model. Front engine cover functions just like on the real tractor; it gives access to the battery box (engine). The only thing wrong here is that the cover is one stud taller than it should be because I had to make room for the things inside. To get the correct shape and for the colors that were involved, I kind of compromise its structural rigidity in the back section where the hinge is (I hope it won’t fall apart). View of the lifted engine cover Same features in the cabin as on the real one. Joystick, computer, display, dash. Close up of the cabin Now, the rear hydraulic lift system is a bit simpler than the real one. Mine has a few levers less, but it functions in the same way, and it looks the same. It goes up and down and swings from side to side (which is the unique feature on this tractor) together with the drawbar hitch which is standard equipment and PTO. A 3-point ball hitch can be implemented at any time. But don’t get full by it, it’s still very complex mechanism to put in such small space and to make it work. View of the rear hydraulic lift system with different attaches Let’s talk about the chassis and drivetrain a little bit. The XL motor is for drive; it’s geared up to 1.67 to get the approximate speed of 1.2km/h otherwise it would be too slow. The whole thing weighs around 1.3kg (I calculated) so I think it shouldn’t be a problem (although I don’t know will it be enough when you attach something to it; a trailer or an implement of some kind). The power is transferred to the small sprocket which is in between the 2 motorcycle wheels on the bottom so it sits on the track and it always has a weight pushing on them so it’s always in contact with the track. The motorcycle wheels are stationary, they don’t turn, the track glides over them. The original idea was to offset motorcycle wheels by 90 degrees, get power to them, and put 4 stationary small sprockets in between. But when I tried it, the sprockets just wouldn’t align to the track correctly. So I had to compromise and do it this way. The front wheel is attached to the big shock absorber which acts as a track tensioner. The midwheels are oscillated front to back and left to right (just like on the real tractor). For steering I used an L motor (that’s the one on top) and dual differential steering system (thanks to @Tommy Styrvoky). The steering output speed is 9:1 at the differentials. PTO is directly powered by another L motor (the one at the bottom). The M motor on top is for the rear hydraulic lift system. The orange friction cylinders are dumpers so that the hydraulics can’t swing freely side to side by its own. On tracks I put those rubber things for better traction (BTW, they only exist in red color but it looked stupid so I colored them dark gray). Top and bottom view of the chassis And yes, there is a black limited edition. PDF instruction AVAILABLE! DISCLAIMER: This is built in LDD. I don’t have real Legos, so I can NOT be 100% certain that this will work. I’m hoping it will, because I’ve paid attention to, calculated, considered, thought through, almost everything. I made sure that every connection is possible, and that nothing hits anything that it’s not supposed to. This time I used colors that exist in real life, so no more parts and colors errors. The only thing that I’m worried about are the rear drive wheels. Will my solution actually work? It should in theory. Anyway, enjoy it and have fun with it. The other colors are just for the fun of it. UPDATE 1 I managed to secure the white worm gear with little modifications, so that it will stay in place and it won't fall off. And now, it looks like this: UPDATE 2 PDF instructions are finished. Here is the link: Challenger MT800E building instructions UPDATE 3 I submitted this MOC on Lego Ideas . If you like it, please support it. Although it needs some corrections to the drivetrain, if it passes forward, I will make sure to do them. I will iron out every wrinkle there is and correct every mistake. And I will make it compatible with standard Lego receivers The deadline for 100 supporters is July 18th 2018. UPDATE 4 New deadline for 1000 supporters is July 16th 2019. Now I have the time and the drive to fix some things, and slowly but surely make it work properly. Thank you
  2. My Lego Space moment is when Lego Brick first meets Outer Space and Classic Space was born. This year is the 40th Anniversary of Classic Space. FLIP the brick over to reveal additional brick and plate pieces that can be combined with the original building bricks to build a Classic Space Station. Both the red and white space minifigs were the first to go into outer space. It is both a commemorative set and a playset. I think this will make a very nice gift set for fans of Classic Space, both young and old. Please vote here if you like the idea. Thanks.
  3. I made this exiting project because I think people will support it.This is an rocket that NASA will launch in 2030,without crew.If you want to support this idea,link is here:https://ideas.lego.com/projects/9651c3c0-bf30-4f6e-a224-d3a61d7c548cHere are some attractive pictures of my rocket: Link for all my projects:https://ideas.lego.com/profile/Good Old Dude/projects#search/s:most_recent Thanks for support!
  4. Hello I'd like to present to you my latest work showing famous Noble Prize winner - Maria SKłodowska Curie in her laboratory. This MOC is a part of bigger project by which in this year my community (Zbudujmy To) celebrates 100th anniversary of regaining independence by Poland. Vignettes and little dioramas are my favorite forms of LEGO creation and in this one I tried to depict the laboratory as well as possible with various furniture and lab equipment. Additionally, I submitted this project on LEGO Ideas, where you can find some more facts about this model: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/99146fd7-3d4a-497a-a050-ac1757e15e95 Laboratory of Maria Skłodowska-Curie by crises_crs, on Flickr Laboratory of Maria Skłodowska-Curie by crises_crs, on Flickr Laboratory of Maria Skłodowska-Curie by crises_crs, on Flickr Laboratory of Maria Skłodowska-Curie by crises_crs, on Flickr Laboratory of Maria Skłodowska-Curie by crises_crs, on Flickr Laboratory of Maria Skłodowska-Curie by crises_crs, on Flickr Laboratory of Maria Skłodowska-Curie by crises_crs, on Flickr Laboratory of Maria Skłodowska-Curie by crises_crs, on Flickr
  5. Which project do you think will be LEGO's choice for the Second 2017 Ideas Review? Likewise, what do you think LEGO's choice will be for the Third 2017 Ideas Review?
  6. (Review) 21309 NASA Apollo Saturn v By: StangMan302 I recently bought this Lego set #21309, and ever since I got it I have wanted to review it. Some main points. Very strong construction. Great building techniques. Very fun building experience. Excellent scale for viewing/ playing. Box. Great artwork. Shows detail Apollo mission. Breaks down the rocket into stages. Gives some info on the 1969 moon landing. Construction overview Bag 1 This was the construction of the inner fuselage of stage 1. This part is very fragile but the second bag brings the whole thing together to make it super strong. Bags 2-6 Adding covering to stage one. Bag 7. Start of stage 2 construction. Bag 8-10. Stage 2 strengthening. Bag 11. Stage 3 construction. Bag 12. Lunar module and final stage assembly. Final thoughts. Building Experience: 9/10 Play ability: 9/10 Price per piece value: 9/10 Display ability 10/10 Details: 9/10 I would definitely recommend this set to anyone with a passion for space or rockets in general. Props to the designers of this set it is one of the best sets I have ever owned.
  7. [MOC] Ariane 6 rocket

    Hello! With a friend weare two European friends passionate about both LEGO and space and that’s why we decided to build a LEGO model of Europe’s new space launcher (or rocket) Ariane 6! We tried to chose a good scale in order to have lot of details (for exemple we designed two satellites under the fairing, there is also the main feeding line, engines etc.). In addition we designed a simplified launch table! That was an amazing project! That's why we have proposed the project on lego ideas and if you want you can support the project here. We have realised a brickmovie of the Ariane 6's integration! we posted the video on youtube here! Don't hesitate to give me some feedback! You can see found pictures bellow: IMAG1360 A6 stickerv5 DSC_0711_MATTE DSC_0730_MATTE_2
  8. Playing in Space Since 1978

    Let me introduce you to my new creation. PLAYING IN SPACE SINCE 1978 by Cristiano Grassi, su Flickr Have you ever wondered how our Spacemen Heroes could travel for almost 40 years through space without getting older or bored to death? Here’s your answer. For forty years our heroes have been playing with LEGO bricks! I was reorganizing some minifigs when I found a spaceman that I used to play with when I was a child, having him live the most amazing adventures. And I started wondering “He’ll be 40 in a little while, what’s his secret?” So, I imagined him, together with all his travelling companions, playing with a LEGO Space base for forty years. Maybe it’s true that playing with LEGO bricks keeps you young. What do you think about it? Do you find it new? Interesting? Creative? I had never seen something like this before and it's one of the reasons I've launched the project on LEGO Ideas. Another one is to see our beloved Classic Space minifig come back, or, why not, maybe even a few themed sets could come back. This project could act as a springboard. If you like, here's the link https://ideas.lego.com/projects/b21ccd00-a013-4509-9614-65cdab72ec82. Let me know what you think about it.
  9. I've got something interesting to share. This is a magic museum that has a 16 x 16 stud footprint. It was deliberately made smaller than a full modular-sized building but was designed to visually fit with other official modular buildings as well as the smaller creator series buildings such as the Corner Deli and Bike Shop & Cafe. It works as a corner building or a “set-in’ building, in-between two other modular buildings. The goal of this set is to blend two creative arts together for an enriching, entertaining and educational experience. Fans of LEGO brick-building will be introduced to the art of magic as they embark on a journey into the colourful world of conjuring & prestidigitation in the “History of Magic Museum”. The “History of Magic Museum” is a historically accurate magic-themed three-storey building that highlights some of the greatest illusions and magicians in the history of magic. It is highly detailed with numerous LEGO replicas of authentic magic & illusion props used by illusionists from the past to present day. There are more than half a dozen play features and removable brick-built illusion displays. This is a Lego Ideas Project, so if you like it, please vote for it: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/8457f73a-9844-4e51-8161-165a2e6a11ee You can watch the video preview here: History of Magic Museum Video
  10. Hey, everyone! Does anyone on Eurobricks remember the classic Cartoon Network TV show Codename: Kids Next Door? I felt nostalgic and decided to make this project because I'm a huge Classic Era Cartoon Network enthusiast and grew up watching this show. There are more rendered images in the link to my project on the very bottom in case you wanted to check it out. Tell me what you think of my project! Any feedback (including both positive and negative) is welcome. Link to project: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/0ae57552-e81f-462f-a951-420bf3735a22
  11. Do you feel it? Feel these smells? In the air there is a quaint mixture of flavors of fresh baked bread, strong coffee, young cheese, spring flowers and of course the most fashionable perfume. Dear friends, welcome to Paris! I invite you for a walk along the Parisian pedestrian streets. In this set I decided to recreate a little piece of this beautiful city. A wide pedestrian street is divided into 2 narrow streets to simulate the winding streets of Montmartre. This project is called "Parisian alleys" This is the continuation of my modular pedestrian street. Like the first set this set has its own interesting story and plot for the game. This time the plot is related to with magic and dark forces. Behind the gloomy door there is the office of Madame Brochant, the famous fortune-teller and witch. Get ready to meet with ghosts and evil spirits! Inside the three buildings of this set there are: Bakery; Artist's workshop; Shop of paintings; The room of a young writer girl; Cafe "Green Windmill" Cheese shop; Fashion boutique. This is a very detailed set with beautiful interiors and buildings. Read and see more about the set you can here: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/b7c711d8-4e15-4b1f-9d8e-8d71fb5c3824 Please SUPPORT this project on LEGO IDEAS web-site!

  13. Lego Ideas Theme

    Hi everyone! This is my first post, so please bare with me... I would love to make a model for Lego Ideas, but need a good theme; idea. Maybe have any ideas? I would like a theme; idea that the Lego community in general would like. Something that can earn a lot of support. Maybe some old theme that I can redo, or maybe even something totally new. It should also be something that wouldn't have a lot of copyright issues, etc. so that it wouldn't be to hard for the Lego Group to actually pass it through if it ever got 10,000 supporters. Thanks, I'm looking forward to hear your thoughts...
  14. MOC - Modular Hardware Store

    For a while I thought not of posting any new designs online, but then I thought I enjoy designing Lego projects so.......... To save time here I will just copy and paste from my Ideas page so I will now say my usual Brick On ! Lucky number three perhaps, well say hello to my latest creation. A single storey farm hardware store with an exterior based on designs from the Edwardian era (early 20th century) or better know in Australia as the Federation era. The colours of the walls, the curved windows the exterior trim on the front of the building all point towards that era. There is a lot of brick and Technic built fixtures and merchandise in this set idea with two minifigs, the store manager and a customer visiting the big city from the country. Brick built display counters feature various pieces of merchandise and behind the counter is a bookcase where catalogues, order books and account ledgers are housed. All the tools on offer hang on wall racks, there are boxes of fencing materials and a barrel of heavy chain, plus under the counter galv wire coils for sale also. The part count would be between 500 and 600 pieces, a cost price of around 100 dollars US. I usually have a brand name for any of my designs, but this time none so please feel free to suggest a name for this particular company. This design is only 16 stud wide so it can sit between the detective's office and assembly square modulars to keep the spacing between street light poles the same Lego Ideas link - Modular Hardware Store
  15. So, who do you think will be Lego's choice for the First 2017 Ideas Review?
  16. Hello, I am Brickstudio Films!

    Hello I am Brickstudio Films, a brickfilming youtube channel dedicated to producing monthly brickfilms! I upload on the second friday of each month, sometimes with modular buildings or a special event such as a Halloween brickfilm. I am still a fairly new channel so please check out my videos on my youtube channel. I tend to post most behind the scenes images, lighting images, and updates on google +. I have a few modular buildings on Lego Ideas @NikBrick2000 too. Please tell me how Im doing on my brickfilms so that I can make better ones in the future. Thanks :)
  17. [MOC] Meet The Flintstones

    This is my LEGO Ideas The Flintstones set proposal HERE I have over half the votes needed for LEGO to review it. Larger and more images HERE Beyond The Brick interview showing physical build HERE The car is attached to the stand / dirt road by a ball joint, so it can be positioned dynamically, and look like the weight of the ribs is tipping it. (The graphics on the Minifigures and other elements were added on top of the photos in Photoshop, Dino is a render composited in ) Thanks, Andy
  18. [MOC] Four-Towered Castle

    After finishing it and creating minifigures I uploaded it to LEGO Ideas which you can find here: Four-Towered Castle It contains some extra information such as piece counts. Feel free to leave a support on the LEGO Ideas site if you like it. 3D Model view here on Sketchfab: Four-Towered Castle The Full Inside view. Note that the castle is made in a "L" shaped layout.

  19. I designed a Lego Space Shuttle to scale with the recent Lego Saturn V set. Since I get this question a lot, it is more proportionally correct than the 10231 and 10213 Shuttle, and is also accurately scaled to the Saturn V :) I posted a version of it on here before, but this one has been adjusted and finally submitted it to Lego Ideas. Please share with friends and sign up and support if you like it! Click to see more images and support if you like it! Lego Ideas - NASA Space Shuttle (Saturn V Scale)

  21. SUPER MARIO BROS. I created this medium sized creation because...hmm... not much to say here... Just sweet childhood memories :) thanks a lot! Gunman
  22. [MOC] My Record Player

    Hello all. This is my first project on ideas.lego.com. I'll be happy if you take a look at it. Best regards. https://ideas.lego.com/projects/176070
  23. Hello guys! In the past I had tried to illuminate some of my moc with the led strips. For small buildings they did not do well. I found this solution and I'm satisfied. The set illuminated, makes beautiful home feeling. P.S: I wanted to put photos but are heavy, I have to load them outside?
  24. HEY All, LEGO We are two flourishing LEGO FANS who have decided to dedicate our Thesis research to an extensive study of the LEGO user's impressions on the LEGO Ideas platform and the fan contribution to TLG - basically on all of you!! SO, we would like to ask you 4 brief questions, which will be used as qualitative data in our thesis.1. How and why has the LEGO Ideas changed your perception of TLG?2. What would it take for you to feel alienated by LEGO in terms of their new ideas for co-creation? Or can LEGO do no wrong when it comes to creating with fans? 3. Would you say that LEGO co-creating with fans have made you more loyal to the brand? How? 4. Did the Lego Ideas Test Lab influence your perception of TLG? THANK YOU for any comments and responses!AND if ANY of you would like to help us even more - we would like to set up a skype-chat / informal interview with you, it will take no more than 10-15 minutes of your time It would be greatly appreciated!!
  25. This is my latest MOC: an Ariel Atom 500 in 1:9 scale! Technically it isn't a true scale model since I didn't use exact dimensions (I just build what I think looks best), but size-wise it's about 1:9. The real car is the fastest ever variant of the Ariel Atom, a street-legal car built for track racing. Released in 2008, the Atom 500 features a 3-litre transverse-mounted V8 made from two motorbike engines. It produces 500 horsepower (hence the name) and redlines at a rather insane 10,500 RPM. Other modifications include massive wings and the gold-painted exoskeleton. The car weighs only 550kg, giving it a power:weight ratio of over 900hp/tonne (higher than anything short of a Koenigsegg) - It recorded a 0-60mph time of just 2.3 seconds and could reach 200mph. It was the fastest road-legal car around the Top Gear Test Track for over two years. That record lap was on damp tarmac - had the track been dry, it would probably still be at the top. Only 25 of these cars were made, selling for around £200,000 each. My model features: Remote control drive and steering with Power Functions - 1 XL motor for drive and 1 M motor for steering 4-speed sequential gearbox operated with paddle-shifters Working steering wheel Full independent suspension with longitundinally-mounted shock absorbers Steering has zero scrub radius V8 engine replica with moving pistons The zero-scrub radius was a new idea for me. When playing around with suspension linkages, I discovered that mounting the links in a certain way would cause all four to move when turning (rather than just the steering link). The center of steering was further outwards, almost exactly in the middle of the wheels (I think it's where the suspension links would intersect when extended, but I'm not sure of this). The geometry I chose works almost perfectly for 68.8x36 ZR tyres on 56mm rims. Here's a picture of the steering links in their two extreme positions superimposed - the point where the wheel shafts intersect is the center of steering: The suspension is standard double-wishbone in the rear, but with a sideways lever converting the upwards motion of the suspension into longitudinal movement of the shock absorber: The transverse V8 was very difficult to fit in because it has even dimensions and the rest of the chassis has odd dimensions. It is connected directly to the XL motor The interior (or as close as you can get to an interior in an Atom) features two racing-style seats, a steering wheel and paddle shifters: The aesthetics were rather difficult at times. The framwork was very difficult even with the 42055 yellow parts (in fact, getting that set is the reason why I built this model), and at times I had to use some tricks. For example, the rear framework looks like it has two beams crossing in an X-formation when in fact the left and right halves of the "X" are two separate structures: I also replicated the exhaust pipes and gigantic rear wing. One of my favourite parts of the model is the side intake and its red stripe: The PF IR receiver is disguised as the air intake and roll hoop: For more pictures of the car, see my video below. Music is composed by me as well: [media]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RhmgbCIpHT0[/media] This project is also on LEGO Ideas! I know the success rate is extremely low for such projects, but it would be amazing if this set because a reality! Please support my project here. Any support is much appreciated.
