HorcikDesigns posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingHi builders and collectors, This MOC started as plain chassis with two-speed GB, basic steering geometry, stabilizers and 4-wheel independent suspension (rear drive) with 3 cylinder fake engine in front. So, technically it is not a supercar you would imagine. Then I built the body around it. It started as blue, but due to lack of parts in this colour I had to "repaint" it, and start building it in white with orange highlights to make it look interesting. Two months after finishing (called so for lack of better names) bodywork, I realized, that four speed gearbox from non-presented project would fit there. And it have (after some minor upgrades and chassis-rebuilds, of course :D) Photos: Hot-Hatch Rallycar by Horcik Designs, on Flickr Hot-Hatch Rallycar by Horcik Designs, on Flickr Hot-Hatch Rallycar by Horcik Designs, on Flickr Hot-Hatch Rallycar by Horcik Designs, on Flickr Hot-Hatch Rallycar by Horcik Designs, on Flickr Hot-Hatch Rallycar by Horcik Designs, on Flickr Hot-Hatch Rallycar by Horcik Designs, on Flickr (more photos: https://www.flickr.com/photos/112259733@N07/albums/72157682676686045) The instructions for the chassis can be found on Rebrickable: http://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-8882/Horcikdesigns/rallycar-chassis/#comments I see this car as ancestor of my previous Yubihama II.
JaydenIrwin posted a topic in LEGO Star WarsThis ship is one of my favourite ships from Star Wars, it's the first ship you'll ever see while watching the saga! It's 292 pieces and comes with 4 stickers on the front area. The escape pod below the cockpit will detach, and the landing gear can be tilted up or down. Overall it's quite a beautiful ship!

Cumulonimbus posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingHi all, I would like to present my MOC: a tower crane. I got inspired by the 42042 B-model, but I was a bit disappointed that the trolley function (which moves the hook closer or further from the crane base) wasn't powered. While redesigning this, I got the idea to construct a tower crane from scratch. The other big inspiration is the 8288 crane. I like how it was completely cable operated and the fact that it's a small scale set large size set. I also like that modularity of the 42042, a feature I wanted to incorporate. The goal of my efforts is a tower crane with a look and feel of a real mid-size TLG set. Functions: - Manual winch with ratchet system - Manual, cable operated trolley - Manual slew - Modular design The first LDD design looked like this (picture of a WIP, so the base and the trolley was not completed at this stage): It had a lot of 6x1 thin liftarms to create the lattice boom structure of the mast and the boom. This would make it a bit flimsy and rather expensive for me to order via Bricklink. So the next step was to redesigned it to make it simpler and more rigid. For example, the 6x1 thin liftarms where replaced by 4x6 angled liftarms, which on one side are a more rigid way of bracing and on the other side can act as the connecting element between sections of a module. I also reduced the amount of modules of the mast to get the part count down (in the spirit of the MINI-contest). This is the final model in LDD: That is the progress so far, I'm waiting on a few Bricklink orders to start building. EDIT: for those interested, the final part count is 744 part, including 3 strings.
