  1. I've just finished another Alternate Build of set 42056 and this time it's a Japanese Classic from the seventies. The 1971 Nissan/Datsun 240Z Fairlady was much lusted after in my youth and they have held their appeal ever since. Features are: Full suspension Steering connected to adjustable height driver's wheel with 2.7 turns lock to lock Right hand drive like the original HOG steering 5 speed and reverse "H" pattern shift gearbox Detailed inline 6 cyinder engine connected to the back wheels via the gearbox Opening bonnet and doors with working door latches Cabin features full leg room, window winders (but no windows) and driver's pedals 50 cm long x 22 cm wide x 16 cm high 1.85 kg 2,071 pieces all sourced from set 42056 but you will need one additional piece to enable reverse gear, the MOC still works without it. For more images, details and instructions head over to my MOC page at Rebrickable.
  2. Hi, This is my first (real) Speed Champions MOC : the 2016 Nissan GT-R Nismo. I've presented these for the first time at the 2018 Brick en Bulles Reims expo in France, last weekend. This is a car i am very fond of, and in my opinion has been missing from the Speed Champions lineup. I've used techniques to try and get the right shape and minimize "accidents". For instance, the two slopes on the back of the cockpit are offseted by half a plate to avoid the "staircase" effect. I'll probably make instructions. There aren't many rare parts. One last family picture, can you spot the intruders ? The full article on my blog: http://bj51creations.blogspot.fr/2018/03/moc-nissan-gt-r.html Thanks for reading!

    [MOC] Datsun 240Z

    Also called the Nissan Fairlady Z.
  4. Hi, lovers of Lego! Today I want to show you my new 4x4 MOC - Nissan Datsun '1996 in D21 body. Specifications of MOC Model Lego Technic Nissan Datsun built on all-wheel drive platform, has a beam axle with unlocked differentials front and rear, steering - rack and pinion. The body and chassis are separate elements and are fastened to each other by 4 points. Opened doors, hood and door body. Electrics: LiPo unit XL motor on movement Servo motor - steering IrV2 - Remote control Just want to say that this story of this model, I did not finish and I want to continue it in the back of double cab body. It all began with the construction of low general pickup, its theme, you can see here on EB. By the summer I want to build a second pick-up and take over the full video on the outdoor. I do not really want to ride on the dirty snow right now.
  5. Starting work on my next project, which will be a lifted Nissan Xterra! Got a full set of RC4WD Rock Crusher tires (essentially the same tread as the popular BF Goodrich tires), and I've also started modeling a fully functional transfer case based around the new (to me) driving rings. New Tires and things! by VKTechnic, on Flickr The green axle is the motor input, orange is rear axle drive, and yellow is front axle. In the middle, the lavender and blue gears are for HI/LO, respectively, and as expected, the FWD can be disconnected as a 2WD/4WD switch. Fairly compact, as the geared part is only 5x5x7 studs! A couple of things are still undecided with this model, the first of which is how to activate the functions. Right now, the transfer case is actuated by mini LAs, which would mean that I would likely be using mini LAs to lock the front and rear diffs. However, there is the option to use small pneumatic cylinders, in which case the axles will be a little simpler to build (more on axles later). On the other hand, using pneumatics means integrating a pressure-regulated compressor and remote controlled valves (or a valve-pump combo), which could end up being bulky. I do have the option of manually controlling those functions, but what's the fun in that? The other undecided aspect is suspension. The Xterra I'm modeling after has A-arms in the front and leaf springs in the rear, so from an accuracy standpoint that is the way to go. On the other hand, 4-link live axles front and rear would be great for off-roading. The tradeoff with 4-link suspension would be space, as independent suspension in the front would let me cram the driveline components in front of the "firewall". TL;DR I've started on an Xterra, but I've got a lot of thinking to do...

    [LDD] Datsun 720 King Cab

    The Datsun 720 is one of my latest vehicle obsessions and I've built a few real model kits of it recently (and casually tried to track down a real one). In a fevered midnight fury I put one together in LDD, utilizing some new-to-me SNOT techniques for the sides and interior, and some crazy angle work to make the distinctive top of the bed with some kind of tie-down detail. Most of my vehicle builds are off-road oriented and so far my Real Brick Builds relied on illegal connections to make articulating rear axles. This time, I've come up with a fully legal and actually pretty convincing, articulating rear axle with driveshaft and transfer case! I'm playing around with ideas for shocks and leaf springs but nothing useful yet. Front uses Mixel joint steering, as per my usual. You can also see a quick experiment with a snorkel here as well. Not sure if I like the larger tires or not. I ultimately inverted the front bumper to get the look I wanted. How does it compare? (Revell model kit) I'm falling in love with this thing, so expect to see a Real Brick Build soon!

    MOC: Nissan Xterra(s)

    Hello! This is my first ever post here. I have recently started getting back into Lego - my childhood pile was donated a few years ago (but for a few vintage printed pieces and chewed-up 1x4 plates that I saved). This project mostly came about because I wanted to build a Lego version of my beloved truck, a 2010 Nissan Xterra, which I have heavily modified: I have done all of the modifications myself, including fabricating many of my own parts (I'm a welder). We'll come back to this in a moment :) For those of you not in the western hemisphere or a market where the Xterra is sold, the Nissan Xterra is a 4x4 SUV based on the Nissan Frontier/Navara platform, designed and primarily built in the US. My first attempt at a Lego Xterra was a modification of 4433 Dirt Bike Transporter; you can see the results of it on MOCPages here. I decided to make it a police truck, mostly because I wanted an excuse to buy some BrickArms weapons. The first major revision of this model saw bigger tires with working suspension, along with a lot of fine-tuning in the bodywork: See more here. I was pretty happy with this one, and then decided to order parts to build a model of the actual truck I own. This version features representations of the stock bumper and tires I had at the time, as well as the rear hatch ladder. Its latest revision has a better roof fairing, as well as the mud-terrain tires, custom-painted rims (and yes, I committed the cardinal sin of painting Lego to match), and tire carrier: See more here. I could help but build one more, this time inspired by the City Elite Police: See more here. And I pretty much left that there for most of the year. I bought a few sets in between to help flesh out my off-road vehicle collection, but I had an itch to do something unique. I thought about making a version of the Mercedes Ener-G-Force concept, then about a civilian SUV version of the SHIELD truck from 6867. I pursued the latter option and it evolved into a concept Xterra that I call the X3 "Super Xterra": See more here. This MOC has all the bells and whistles I could think to put on an off-road SUV - live axles front and rear with differential detail (both articulate as you can see), hidden winch inside the front bumper, which also has a prerunner stinger bar, built-in lighting all around, intake snorkel. Here it is compared to the previous version (latest revision): And that's a custom decal for my face. I'm sure I'll be pushing them as I discover better elements (or Lego comes up with better ones - I need a windscreen with much more rake!). I have a few other MOCs, of course, which will be showing up in due time, but I thought I'd kick off my membership with a doozy.
  8. Here is my small scale, about 1:17, rc Nissan Skyline R34. Not many functions, but does have servo steering, rear differential, opening bonnet and boot. I have tried to make it as small as possible whilst accommodating the AA battery box. Hope you like it.

    MOC: NISSAN GT-R LM NISMO

    So, Nissan has revealed its newest racing machine, the GT-R LM NISMO. its front engined V6 Twin Turbo, and Front wheel drive. oh but wait its also Electric and All Wheel Drive! that makes it uniquely FF/E-AWD with a combined power output of 1250 BHP. and just a day after the first images appeared here it is in LEGO form! (reference image included at the bottom) NISSAN GT-R LM NISMO (7) by kayjeb, on Flickr NISSAN GT-R LM NISMO (6) by kayjeb, on Flickr NISSAN GT-R LM NISMO (4) by kayjeb, on Flickr NISSAN GT-R LM NISMO (3) by kayjeb, on Flickr NISSAN GT-R LM NISMO (1) by kayjeb, on Flickr So, there it is, 8-wide and fits a mini-fig with helmet! the car is only 4 bricks tall from the ground, and 19 studs long. Originally this was a 6-wide, to match the current city race car, and the upcoming Speed Champion cars. but it never really felt right that way. I think 8 wide was the right choice. Comments and critiques welcomed! Real Car Reference image.
  10. msbbanl posted this of his excellent, 8880-based, Lego Technic Nissan Skyline GTR R34 model. He wrote that it is a "Modified LEGO Technic 8880 with 6 cylinder engine with air filter, turbo, intercooler, air intake, horn, battery. In the back subwoofer, amplifier and NOS bottles. Standard 8880 4-speed gearbox, 4 wheel drive."
