  1. Hello there! I would like to show you a (slow and painful) progress on my take on mini mining excavator. Yeah, the Liebherr 9800 R kind. I kinda like the model, the 42100 and Markus is my favorite Technic creator but ... Well, the model is just to big and too simple and I can see some lazy short cuts (having three motors in an arm). And I haven't even mentioned the price, which is hilarious. Sorry about the rant. So you can imagine my joy when I saw cyberdyne systems' Mini Replica. He clearly showed what can be done in small form factor. However I was wondering if fully motorized version is also possible. Here starts my story. I've decided to build roughly 1/2 scale model. Yeah, I can be lazy to and dividing by 2 seems easy enough. At the moment I am not into esthetics, it's more about function, so please forgive me some crazy decision. Let me show you what have I done so far: I've started with the undercarriage. Simple, two tracks and turntable at the top. Well, the problem is motorization and even the smallest gearing needs 2-3 studs. The results is this: I am trying to use as little space for gearing as possible. It's not elegant by far: Motors are hidden in the back: At this stage, the battery (I am planing on using 2x BuWizz) will be located in the upper portion and cables are going through the center. Is not optimal solution, but solution through the turntable with mechanical connection needs even more space in the body. Next part was the bucket. I've also choosen 1/4 cylinder, however I've found interesting idea for bucket teeth. I think it works just fine: The bucket is fully operational. Next thing was building an arm. I was just trying to mimic the 42100 in 50% scale. However transfer of power at such scale is problematic: Here is the whole arm: And this is where I got stuck. I need to fix side M motors, which at the moment are just lying around. BuWizz units will be located at right corners. I am using studded technique just to approximate size. Another problems are universal joint's. They tend to work at angles 0-45°, however the arm swings for 90°. Maybe I should attach motors at an angle. Or do some gear magic. Regarding gear magic - I have to much of them already. I guess the biggest future problem is how to fit in motors and subcarriage. Feel free to comment.

    [M-D04] Tracked Chrome Driller

    My first MOC for Eurobricks' Andromeda's Gates. I've designed a mining vehicle for M.A.N.T.I.S corporation. The Tracked Chrome Driller can be used at different kinds of terrain, such as rocks, ice, desert, and forests to mine ores. I've started mining at planet D04. I've found a small place at planet D04 which contains many ores. Hope to find some interesting and usefull ores which I can use to make powerfull mining equipment.
