MariusL posted a topic in LEGO TownHello Ladies and Gentlemen! I like to show you my articulated off-highway transporter with the Mobile Paper Plane Launching Unit (MPPLU). The features of the vehicle are: - Articulated Off-Highway vehicle with pendulum axles - Large cab with little kitchen and 2 beds - Large storage hold for tools at the rear of the cab - Powerful winch for Self-loading capability of different platform- or skid-mounted equipment Features of the mobile paper plane launching unit: - Catapult 24 studs long for paper planes format A6 and A7 - Knuckle boom crane - Telemetry boom - Large hold for accessory - Control room - Motorcycle For the transporter the articulated, terra-tired wheeled carriers from Foremost, for example Delta 3 or Commander C, inspired me. With the help of the winch, the vehicle is capable to self-load different types of platform-mounted Equipment. Usually the winch is located on the platform but I found one old photo of a Foremost Delta 3 were the winch is located in the aft of the front carriage, right in front of the Joint. The cab is equipped with three seats, a little kitchen and a folding double bed. Beside the MPPLU there exists a simple platform with rear live roll for transport operations, for example parts for the cable crane. Pendulum axles the rear live roll The MPPLU is skid-mounted and consists of the starter, the control room, the engine room, a boom with tracking equipment, a crane and storage space. Plenty of space in the control room. The table can be used as a bed too. The starter can be dismounted easily and makes a lot of fun as handheld paper plane catapult. The vehicle is optimized for playability and no scale model. Loaded with a skid mounted tank Erecting a skid mounted tank More photos you can see on flickr. I am interested what you think!
