[TC11] CAT A The Mammoth Hello! I'm back with an entry for this contest. I have created something that should like a sort of mammoth. I have still some problems to solve (more on that later) but it is almost finished. Here are some pics: The bot contains 1 sbrick, drives with two xl motors, and there are two functions: - The spear, wich is pulled back with help of a string, and a rubber band that keeps the spear on tension. I will show you some close-ups in the final video. - The tusks. These maybe look flimsy (actually they are), but the flexibility comes in very handy, because it closes around a opponent perfectly. Here is a pic of the inside: The gears under the actuator are part of the spear system. When the spear is full back, it pushes against a lever, that set the gearbox in release, and the spear can fire perfectly. When the spear is full in front, the gearbox is in pulling mode. I have made this so I can use one motor for the function. Here is another picture of the belly: Now I still have one problem. The model doesn't turn quit well. Now the model is around 1.8 kilos, it isn't easy to turn, but without the black covers it works just fine for my needs. When the covers are on, the model doesn't turn (the wheels aren't touching the covers). I'm still looking for a solution, but maybe someone does know what I have done wrong. This is it for now, I you have any questions let my know.
Hi everybody, today I present you a series of small animals, which some of you might have seen on my flickr photostream already. The idea for these little mocs was born just by chance and I think especially younger kids will love it. By using less bricks I kept the models simple, but tried to capture the real things as effectively as possible. Here we go: That's it for the moment... don't know, if it's to be continued! Feel free to leave a comment and thanx for your interest! So long, Jens
