Hi guys, after a while of being not so active on the forum I decided to share a MOC (still wip) of a MAZ 537 8X8 truck. When I saw the 42099 I knew I needed some planetary hubs, so I got myself 8 of them :). Around this time I started playing with LEGO again, but kept it at american trucks (which i will post later). I started making a simple axle, because I really wanted the independent suspension on all axles like the real truck has. After this I build a test chassis and one thing led to another and now I have a rolling chassis for the truck. I came across these actions photo's of the truck and i'm planning to make some more and better pictures of the drivetrain and such. http://MAZ 537 WIP by J. van Veldhuizen, on Flickr http://MAZ 537 WIP by J. van Veldhuizen, on Flickr http://MAZ 537 WIP by J. van Veldhuizen, on Flickr Will keep posting updates! Have a nice evening, Legotechnicus
Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls, BEHOLD: The Mighty MAZ 7310 Uragan Cargo Truck, in LEGO! This massive set, which I have designed over the course of two years, stands almost ten inches tall, two feet long, and is comprised of almost 7,000 pieces. I sat at my computer for hours a day, sometimes, surfing the web, looking at blueprints, building, deleting, building some more, etc. And now, finally, I can reveal my masterpiece to the world! Bwa-ha-ha! Okay, anyway, I have designed my set for maximum playability, stuffing it full of all sorts of awesome goodies, like opening hood, doors, tailgate, and utility boxes. A removable roof, folding rear seats, free-spinning wheels (including the steering wheel), two Diesel engine options, a generator, compressor, radiator, Master Mechanic's Toolkit, fuel and water drums, 12v batteries, large cargo container, winch, wide-load flags, roof racks, warning beacon, fog lights, two sets of mirrors, lightbars, and more! (Whew! I'm out of breath!) Now, for the real machine: The MAZ 7310 (Minsk Automobile Plant, in Russian), was a large 8-wheeled Missile Transport truck built in the 1950s and 60s. Soon after, people started using them as cargo trucks, tankers, tow trucks, and airport fire trucks. Alright, that's it! Thank you all for looking at my LEGO creation! If you have any questions, comment, I'll do my best to respond ASAP. Happy building and have a great day! Update: Also, some of you may have noticed that the cab of the real vehicle is slightly longer. This is true, I had to shorten the LEGO version out of necessity, as the extra length could’ve affected my MOC’s stability and structural integrity. I suppose I could probably figure it out eventually, but I like it how it is. Thanks for understanding!
Hi all! I present my newest project, which is among my biggest ones ever. I build the monstrous Maz 535, inspired mainly by real life Maz (537, because there are no working 535 any more, if I know well), and a bit of Spintires. I know about this heavy truck before spintires, too, but when the tech demo released, I could finally "drive" it, simulating a bit the behavior of this truck. It's an awesome and indestructible machine, a real russian cold war truck. So it shouldn't be missing from my mocs. I build in 1:15 scale, which means the 108 mm tyres. Of course, in this size I'll use again the crawler tyres, RC4WD rock crusher XT's, and maybe later I'll buy a more authentic looking military tyres. I'll make the tractor truck, so there will be no cargo platform in the back. The real life vehicle: ---> this will be my version Thanks to spintires, we have some good looking high quality render, so I can make the details properly: http://www.simulasyonturk.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/spin-tires-maz535finihmodel1.jpg http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-1Lya0MYqf-I/UJXplkmcyuI/AAAAAAAAALQ/aKsF8vN25O8/s1600/maz535_04.jpg http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-oRD07JncgzY/UJXpgYwP83I/AAAAAAAAALE/A1tpVtJo1Gk/s1600/maz535_03.jpg https://i.ytimg.com/vi/sRDnX2OQ37I/maxresdefault.jpg My goals: - 1:15 scale --> 108 mm custom wheels - 8x8/4 (first two axles steered) - Radio controlled with RC buggy system, 1 RC unit, 2 RC motors - very robust drivetrain and steering - proportional looking, with model body and details, as close to the original as possible - 24 studs width at the wheels and body - full authentic (independent in front and semi-independent in rear) suspension with minimum 2-3 studs of suspension travel - no portal or planetary hub - 2 speed gearbox controlled by the RC unit's servo - working towing cable, with heavy winch and hook (metal) - working headlights - dark green color There will be pictures about the process soon, first I make the front axles and the main placing of components, steering. I collected a pretty large amount of dark green bircks, tiles, etc., so the color shouldn't be a problem. Fortunately, there are curved dark green bricks, to make the curved edges in the top and front. The gearbox would be a sliding type, and it's movement will be done by the servo of RC unit. To help in this process, and fix the slifing axle in the second gear's position there will be magnets somewhere. By default, the gearbox will be in first gear, when the servo is in 0 position, so it will be reliable under torque. The shifting to second gear this way will be an additional extra, if you want to do. It's a heavy truck (will be about 3 kg), so even with robust drivetrain I think it won't be capable of doing trial/heavy terrain, but if a medium can be done, that's far enough for me. If a 30° slope and a terrain with 3-4 studs high obstacles is no problem, then I reached my goal with it's off-road capabilities. Comments and questions, ideas, etc. are appreciated, as always.
