    A Lumbering Process

    A Lumbering Process Loggers, Sawmiller and Shieldsmiths In this MOC, a trio of scenes showcases the process of transforming trees into shields in medieval times. These workers are from the town of Batuhan, in northern Kaliphlin. Loggers The first vignette shows loggers at work. Two are using their axes to chop down a linden tree. Linden wood (or basswood) is light and easy to work with making it a great for shieldsmithing. A third man guides a horse pull along a felled tree. Sawmiller Logged trees make their way to the sawmill shown in the second scene. The water wheel powers the saw blades reducing the amount of manual effort needed to create lumber from logs. A sawmiller pushed the tree through the machine. At the other end, lumber falls into a cart (not shown) to be taken to the lumberyard or carpenters. Shieldsmiths Shieldsmiths take the linden lumber planks and cut them to the right shape and then plane them. The carpenter (center) uses a cabinet scraper to further smooth the wood surface. The blacksmith (right) hammers out an iron band to reinforce the shield. A painter (left) applies heraldry to a fully constructed shield.
  2. Hello everybody, I present to you another "ancient" MOC of mine - built in May 2016 and only now I finally managed to make a presentation of it - The Logging Truck: At first it was supposed to be a Trial Truck, but as it grew to heavy, especially due to "model team-ish" cabin, I decided to make it more easy going. It doesn't represent any particular model, nor is it scaled or anything... It's driven by a PF XL motor and steered by a PF M motor. It has full suspension, detailed cabin interior and engine compartment. Oh, and I have to admit it is heavilly inspired by Ingmar Spijkhoven's work (2LegoOrNot2Lego). I'll let the photos do the talking... The position of the trailer trolley can be adjusted between the two yellow stops - the main beam slides through the trolley and is held in place by springs and rubber 2L connectors. While the truck is fully suspended, the trailer uses a kind of pendular linkage between both axles. The cabin has detailed interior... ...and so does the engine bay - totaly imaginatory - without any knowledge or research of the real truck engines . I guess under skirt shot is in order... I really like how the front axle turned out, the ackermann is almost to much. Here's another pair of photos to finish it off and a short video of course... I hope you like it and thanks for comment. Please find bigger photos here. Best regards, Miha
  3. Here's my version of a skeleton logging car. These are loosely based on the logging cars my father had on his H.O. layout when I was young. I might build a couple for my 4-4-0 to pull around, but I'm undecided for now. Below is a pic and a link to the .lxf file on Bricksafe. I'm putting out a couple of other cars that I've designed but not built. Hope you like, comments always welcome.
  4. This type of geared type loco is called a "Shay" (specifically a type "A", which means two pistons and two trucks) and were named after their original inventor of the type, Ephraim Shay. These loco's could only go about 20 miles per hour (or about 32 Kilometers per hour, if that's your thing) at top speed, and were very steady on rough track, hauling logging and mining trains up grades that would easily stall conventional steamer types. You can read more about Shay geared steam locomotive's at Wikipedia. Please NOTE: The design of the original Shay I redid into my version was by Stephan Pakbaz over on Flickr, as seen below. (His LDD file allowed me to build my version) as seen here. The 1 x 1 tiles on either side of the coal bunker are supposed to be printed with the number "4" The Shay type only has pistons on one side, with the other side being kinda sparsely decorated. Usually, their would be various accessories and such on this side, but i liked it better devoid of any clutter. The Shay geared steam loco bends in a odd way... but at least it works. NOTE: The angle shown is quite a bit more severe curve than the loco will ever have to handle.... but it looks pretty cool! This raw ore car was modeled after a custom Brick Link item by @wildchicken13 except mine is narrower and uses two wheels for a Wild West flair. You can see the original item that inspired me here. The caboose follows my standard pattern for my Western trains, with only a few color swaps and a missing cupola on top to set it apart from the others. Here we see the mining train consisting of four silver ore cars and a caboose, without the Shay. This is my latest (and most likely last) Western styled train, and it will join my other four steamers and their trains in my Wild West collection sometime later in 2018. (The reason I say "last" is that I've run out of railroad-related ideas for my Wild Western layout and am planning on focusing on the updated Native American camp, revised Fort Legoredo and the remaining frontier town buildings after this.) As you may have suspected, the ore the mining train holds comes from my well-protected silver mine, which can be seen in it's own topic. ...and as usual, comments, questions, complaints and suggestions are always welcome!
  5. Large Timber Plantation QV9.1 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr After spending quite a large amount of time in the Quinnsville public records building, Richard Brickford decided to plan a trip to a nearby lumber camp. After finding someone to take him there he was throughly amazed at how these minifigs could fell such large trees! While there he learned that the wood harvested here would go on to be processed further into wood that could be used for shipbuilding. QV9.2 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr It was a relatively small camp with only tents set up for the lumberjacks, but that is because they have to move as they cut their way through the forest. QV9.3 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Dear Governor Cooke, Today I visited one of the lumber camps that provide the shipyards with their timbers. It was a marvelous experience watching the massive trees get felled by such small axes. The shipyards are very grateful for the steady supply of wood though. I will be visiting the docks before long, and will give you a status update of what their operating procedures are and the state of trading activity. In service to her Majesty, Richard Brickford, Royal Surveyor of Quinnsville So after a short hiatus from posting developments in Quinnsville, I'm back with a large timber plantation! This was pretty fun to build, but the terrain was not! C&C are welcome and appreciated and thanks for looking! More builds to come!
  6. Hi to all, It was a lot of time to share something here, so TC10 contest is good opportunity. My entry is a log skidder with 4 pneumatic and 3 manual functions; - In-cabin steering via steering wheel - 4wd drive and fake 4 cylinder engine - Pendular front suspension - Front blade up/down with 1x5 piston - Boom section 1 up/down with 2 old pistons - Boom section 2 up/down with 2x11 piston -Claw open/close with 1x5 piston (also rotates with small turntable) I dont have a video yet but i will add later because i will not have time in workdays. I hope I can do next week. Comments and critics are welcome and good luck to all contestants :) 01e by nik 03e by nikolyakov, on Flickrolyakov, on Flickr 02e by nikolyakov, on Flickr 00e by nikolyakov, on Flickr 04e by nikolyakov, on Flickr 05e by nikolyakov, on Flickr 06e by nikolyakov, on Flickr 08e by nikolyakov, on Flickr 10e by nikolyakov, on Flickr 11e by nikolyakov, on Flickr
  7. Back in 2012 set 9397 Logging Truck was released. It was a nice set and I bought it to motorize. But looking on the internet for real self-loading logging trucks I more and more started to want to make this set as a base for a more scale model look. So I made the truck wider from 15 studs to 17 with is more in scale with that type of tire. Eventually I designed a complete new truck based on the set, but looking more like an original US Logging Truck and fully remote controlled. Self-loading Logging Truck by Barry Bosman, on Flickr It has just only taken me 4 years to complete the video... hahaha. Due to free time and not completely satisfied about the video material I never got to making a video. The video material was shot by a well known Dutch Technic master Mahj On July 2012 We went to a nearby forest to find a good place for shooting the video material with a nice backdrop. Yesterday I went to mahj to help me with getting to know the new video editing software Mahj already has good experience with. And here is the finished result. Function: 2 M-motors for drive M-motor for steering M-motor for switching between two functions M-motor for moving the second steering axle / moving the crane arm back / forward M-motor for moving the outriggers / moving the boom up / down M-motor for turning the crane Micro motor for rotating the claw Micro motor for opening en closing the claw Because I wanted the crane to move freely I decided to place the control of the 2 micro motors in the crane it self, place the battery pack and receiver on the crane. This so the wires couldn't get entangled with the gears. I have found a basic sketch of how all the gears, axles and motors are connected in the small chassis. I will make a LDD drawing of this and post this soon.
  8. Hi folks, something new - hm, no, historical ;) I made a histrical logging trailer, those were/are used here in southern germany. They are quite simple, but effective :) Oh, and here a small video which shows how the logs are loaded... Have fun...
  9. Hi guys, today I present the biggest moc I've ever done. It is a caterpillar CT660 self loading logging truck . It includes : 2 Xl motors; 3M motors; 2 Large motors; 2A 1 bb; 3A 1 bb. It weighs 5.2 pounds. Thank you for reading , your comments are welcome!
  10. Hi, My main LEGO project of 2015: a KOMATSU forest layout with two forestry machines of KOMATSU forest. Both built in the Model Team style. The layout contains the KOMATSU 951 harvester, one of the newest and largest harvester of KOMATSU Forest, and the KOMATSU 895 forwarder, the largest forwarder of KOMATSU Forest.. Both built in a small scale and with several functions from the real machines. I've posted both a few months ago in the Technic forum.

  11. Welcome everybody :) My name is Michał, I come from Poland and I’m 18. It's my first MOC showed here. Scania Logging Truck This truck is made in scale 1:10. The total size is: 113 studs of length, 29 of width and 37 of height (90/23/30 cm). It weighs 6,3 kg, has 10 motors and a lot of parts. Specifications: 1:10 scale lenght 113s / width 29s / height 37s Weight: 6,3kg 10 motors 4x6 drive Front independent suspension Rear floating suspension History From some time I've been planning to build something huge, when I had started building I didn't really know what I want to build. I chose Scania used to transporting wood. I built it from November to March. There was a 2-speed gearbox, but then there wasn’t enough space for crane and turntable. Suspension Front suspension is independent. For depreciation there are used 2 springs form the 9,5L absorber (from Unimog) and 2 springs from the yellow 6,5L absorber per each wheel. Rear suspension is floating, based on the elements of Unimog. For deprecation there are used 2 springs from the yellow 6,5L absorber per each axle. Driving To drive I used two XL motors with reduction 7:1.They are connected electrically and mechanically. Steering To steer I used one M motor with reduction 5:1. The drive is passed to 1x4 gear rack. Pneumatic The compressor is driven by M motor with the ratio 1:1. The servo motor conrols the valve and with M motor is connected electrically, so when the compressor is working the valve opens or closes. The Crane Rotation The rotation is based on the turntable, which is driven by M motor with ratio 168:1. The crane rotates only 180°, because of the pneumatic lines brought to the gripper. First section It is connected directly with the turntable. There are 2 linear actuators, driven by XL motor with reduction 3,5:1, responsible for lifting the second section. Second section It is connected to the first section. There is 1 linear actuators, driven by M motor with ratio 4,6:1. It is used to lift the third section. Inside there is a M motor responsible for rotating the gripper. Third section and the gripper To the third section there is connected the gripper, which is closed and opened by 1 large pneumatic cylinder. The rotation is driven by M motor with reduction 58:1. Outriggers Outriggers are built from mini LAs and driven by M motor. Others functions: Openable doors and cabine Headlights LED Working V8 dummy Some photos GALLERY
  12. Ok, here is my entry, got it finished this morning after all night build. My triple consist of truck, removable log crane and trailer. The truck and the crane work with remote PF. (except outriggers on crane are handled manually) The truck: The truck features forward/reverse (L-motor) and return to center steering by PF servo. In the truck are also located the cranes turntable and main boom motors (M&L). It uses maximum 500 parts, it was quite a challenge to do such large model with relativelly small part count. I used LDD trough all the build, so it shouldn't exceed the max part count. I learned a LOT on optimizing and utilizing special technic parts. I'm quite happy with appearance of it, and I like the cabin very much. All tho I had to tape few panels black cause I hadn't anough of them :( But I think you hardly notice :) The crane: The crane features main boom, second boom, and fully operational claw. They work remotely. (one channel not used) Motors are M. It has also manual outriggers. Crane also uses all 500 parts. The claw rotates using small turntable and claw closing action is fed trough it. The claw is synchronized so turning the claw won't affect much to closing action. The synchronization is done in the superstructure with system of gears and differential. In short, when the turning motor is driven, it also turns the the claw gears trough the stationary differential in opposite direction so the claw is almost unaffected (It was not possible to exactly match the gear ratios with small turntable). When claw motor is driven, is the differential turning and closing/opening the claw. Claw turning is not affected at all. I'm quite pleased with this brainchild. It could be used with any other application when turntable is causing undesired action. Below is the crane with out battery case, so the system is visible: (It's a poor picture, I don't know can you make any sense of it) The trailer: Nothing special there, other than it uses only 453 parts :) oh, and I'm also short of double angular beams in same color. All my Black and dark grey ones are in this triple. Finally, all working together: Short video clip: I think I will just copy this to entry topic. (Did it) Feel free to comment.
  13. Hi everybody. I build another MOC in the last days and wanted to share the result with you. Is is nothing special, but I like it. The whole truck is exactly 100 cm long (trailer is 66 cm). The truck is motorized with power functions, it has one XL motor for driving and one M motor for steering. For a better steering I have attached a worm gear. It seems, that I only build log trucks :-) Enjoy the pictures and let me know, what you think...
  14. Hey everybody. I am new to this forum respectively this is my 1st post after a while of only reading. As my favourite set is the 9397 logging truck I did a few modification and I built a trailer for it. As you can see on the pictures I modified the logging truck with double wheels and also did some enhancements on the crane. With this mods the crane has a better playability and can be almost fully positioned behind the cabin. For that I replaced the small actuator with a big one. Also I did some mods only for cosmetic reasons, e.g. I replaced the original grey wheel rims on the truck with silver wheel rims (out of the 8285 set). After that was done I thought about building a trailer for my truck. You can see the result on the pictures, let my know what you think. I used almost the same chassis as used for the original 9397 truck. All axles have doubles wheels and the first axles can rotate. So what I now need is definitely more wood :-)
