I' ve decided to make an alternative model for 42054 CLAAS XERION 5000 TRAC VC set. I' ve wanted to design something different from all those excellent c models already made, so I made a truck capable of off-road conditions, with crane and many other functions. The result: Functions: rear axle drive with 4 piston engine steering live axle suspension side outriggers cabin tilting rear PTO (power take off) crane arm rotation crane arm 1st stage elevation crane arm 2nd stage elevation grabber closing/opening Please watch the video to see this machine in action and for more details. This model is powered by one m motor with rotation direction selection. It powers main selector, crane selector. and PTO. Main selector switches between worm gear powered functions and arm rotation. When worm gear functions are selected, there is another switch to choose between outriggers and cabin tilting. The crane selector switches between 1st and 2nd stage elevation. I had to use some interesting (I think) solutions because of parts selection in 42054 set: Piston engine There are no piston engine parts in the set, so i made them from some connectors. You can see it working in the video. Suspension There are no shock absorbers or wishbones too. So I' ve made a suspension based on twisting axles: Every wishbone is suspended independly. 3 of those connected to axle make a well-working long travel soft off-road suspension: Grabber There was a grabber in original set, but when building the grabber I've already used the worm gear for more important functions, so I' ve designed a different locking mechanism: Turning the green axle makes the red grabber frame move up and down and becouse of engaging the blue knob gear with h-frame opening and closing blue grabber. Instructions Instructions are already available here on rebrickable! I hope you liked this model.
Waler posted a topic in LEGO Technic and Model TeamAround 4 months ago I built alternative model of 42035 Mining Truck but I just found some spare time to take pictures, film and describe it. So, using only parts from one 42035 set (including spares) two models were created: single engine Airplane and Tug. In total I used 347 parts from original 364. Mostly long axles and connectors has left. AIRPLANE This one has been built first. First off when I saw tapered panels I thought – “they’ll fit perfectly as an airplane wings!”. So I had no doubts what kind of alternative I’d like to do. Alpha version was created in 3 evenings and didn’t differ that much from the final product but still many parts left, including 4 wheels. I thought that it’s too much waste of bricks and I have to think out something else, best if this “something” would fit existing model. And so, second model appeared - Airport Tug, but about it in a minute. Airplane consist of 208 elements. It has moving single piston engine and propeller at front. Movement comes from rear wheels which are made out of T16 entwined with a chain. Plane has also movable rear loading ramp and ruder. From visual site there are pair of landing lights and side exhaust. Cockpit and 4 windows for passengers were highlighted too. TUG As I mentioned earlier after building airplane lots of parts left and I’ve made second vehicle – tug. It consist of 139 parts and has 2 functions – driving and retracting rear tow bar with hitch. In this model you can detect 2 similarities to mining truck – front grill and steering system. As there were quite limited amount of bricks left, probably nothing better than this, which has been already made, was possible to create. As in original truck there is also HOG steering. Tow bar mounting point is exactly at the end of frame. To fold and unfold it there is T8 gearwheel placed just behind driving wheel. At its end there is a hitch for airplane front wheel that can moves freely in any direction. After hooking it up propeller doesn’t touch any part of tow bar. Thanks to short wheelbase and overall compact dimensions even with hooked up airplane, maneuverability is really good. Everything due to limited amount of bricks is outlined in shape of tug but whole construction is resistant for intensitive play. Unfortunately visual attractions and details almost doesn’t exist beside front grill, mentioned earlier, and headlights. Bearing in mind that there are only around 360 bricks to use I think that models are not that bad. Both of them had to go on compromise but more attention and parts I spent on airplane. VIDEO: INSTRUCTION: It is true that making instructions is not my strong point but this time due to fact that many of you has 42035 set, I decided to made a LDD model. You can download it along with automatically generated instruction by clicking: DOWNLOAD Before building note that LDD interpret "axles with stop" incorrectly, so it's sometimes impossible to place it like instruction suggest. Keep it in mind when building. Thanks
I' ve decided to make an alternative model for 42053 Volvo EW 160E set. Finally made a telehandler. Video: Functions: - 4 wheel steering - front outdiggers - pneumatics with manual pump: arm lifting arm extension tilting fork Please watch the video to see this machine in action and for more details. I hope you liked this model.
