_TLG_ posted a topic in LEGO TownHello Magnum, Ferrari and Speed Champions fans, this targa topped 1984 Ferrari 308GTSi Quattrovalvole (pictures 1 and 6) was made famous by the television series Magnum, p.i. in which the series' lead, Thomas Magnum (Tom Selleck) drove the car around Oahu for eight seasons while on his investigations, from 1980 to 1988. Several 308 GTS cars were used, a new one for each season, most being auctioned off after filming and all with the license plate ROBIN 1. The berlinetta version of this model is called Ferrari 308GTB Quattrovalvole (pictures 2-5 and 7-8). The design inspiration of this model came from a Ferrari 308 Matchbox which I received as a child. Building instructions are available on the following links: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-64110/_TLG_/magnum-pi-ferrari-308-gts-gtb-quattrovalvole/#details or https://www.mocsmarket.com/lego-mocs/instructions-moc-magnum-p-i-ferrari-308-gts-gtb-quattrovalvole/ They are a studless builds in the new, 8 studs wide Speed Champions style. I wanted to create a sleek models which are as accurate as possible in this small scale. Only two stickers are used per model: the rectangular Ferrari logo, and the vehicle registration plate, to keep the flexibility of the used parts in further builds. My intent was to keep the width-length-height ratio of the real car and this size makes it possible. The models contain lots of details: for example the emblematic air vents on the hood (black on GTS and red on GTB), the front bumper with the turn signal lights, the tilted front grill, the rear three quarter window with black cover, the turn signal lights on the front side, the black stripe on the sides, the side-view mirrors, the tiltable seats etc.. Maybe the most challenging one was the iconic rear side with the vehicle registration plate, here there is a half stud offset. I tried to fill every unecessary gaps and therefore some tricky build techniques are used. The model has space for two minifigures. I suggest to use small hairs. Without the seats and the two interior tan tiles minifigures with bigger hairs can be used too if they are leaned back.

MP LEGO Technic creations posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Model Team and Scale ModelingHello everybody. Here's my WIP moc of Case IH Magnum 340 CVX. Controlled by Control+ More photos soon, currently testing.
Hello! Two years after I posted my third tiny RC, the Mercedes Citaro ( ) I made my fourth one! It’s the replica of one of the most specific trucks. I’m sure you have already realised it on the small picture, before you opened its mocpage! The type of it is Renault Magnum. The idea of building this truck at this scale and with this brand method is quite old, but other projects and university stole the time. So I’m very happy, that it’s ready! Hope you like it, too! The length of the whole vehicle is 45 studs. The width of the tractor is 6,4 studs (16 plates), the width of the trailer is 6,6 studs (16,5 plates) without mirrors and other design elements. The scale is minifig scale. It has the two compulsory functions of a tiny RC, propulsion and steering. It contains approximately 820 pieces. The video: Because of two developments, the motions of the truck are absolutely lifelike. It’s possible to solve almost all extreme situations, which happen with trucks in real life! You may realised that the trailer is not exactly horizontal. If both axles are fixed, the front wheels don’t touch the ground. The weight of the trailer is on the front axle, the other axle and the wheels on it are only decorations. It was a real challenge to figure out the front! I used almost every direction. I'm very proud of the result Technical detailes: You may remember my yellow Daf truck, the grille of it is my body icon everywhere ( ). The Renault is similar to that, everything is in the semi-trailer, but it has two very important differences (the two developments). Propulsion The motor drove the wheels of the trailer at the Daf. It meant that the truck couldn’t move, the trailer couldn’t push the tractor if the angle of the trailer and the tractor was too close to 90 degrees. In this truck the rear wheels of the tractor are the driven wheels. You can see the method on the pictures, how I brought the spinning from the trailer to the tractor. The right angle is not a problem any more! Steering I used two cardan joints in this truck and in the older one, too. The difference is the aim of the joints. Two joints rotate the axles into vertical position in the Daf. One of them compensated the angle, which exists in bends. It means that the motor can’t rotate the axle, if the angle of the trailer and the tractor is smaller than 135 degrees. The cardan joint can’t spin above this angle. In the Renault two joints have the task of compensation. So right angle is not a problem any more! By the way we still have the with the steering. I tried to use servo motor, but it was a fail. The motion goes through a wormscrew, many gears and the two cardan joints from the motor to the steered wheels, so the backlash is big. The servo motor can’t bring back the wheels into middle position after steering. Servo motor is useful, if it is as close to the steered wheels as possible. For example in a bus. In a Mercedes Citaro… If you are technic fans, you may remember that we can find cardan joints between the wheels and motor in 9398. But that set is very big, so the same difference is smaller problem there, as at minifig scale.We are transporting something very dangerous! My previous tiny RCs: Daf, Routemaster, Mercedes Citaro The LDD file is avaiblable on Mocpages. It doesn't contain some elements of the steering mechanism between the two front wheels, it's the meaning of the lime plates. You can see these elements on the pictures or in the video. Thanks for visiting and I hope, it’s not too late to wish you a happy new year!
