In the months following the Historican Civil War, strange vessels were seen racing on the winds off the eastern coasts of Nocturnus and Mitgardia. No one knew their origin, and the folk that piloted them spoke in a strange and antiquated manner, if they ever came close enough to communicate at all.
Hi there I'd like some feedback on what you think is the best outrigger design? I don't have much experience with (modern) LEGO versions as I only have the 8110 Unimog (which is perfect, but manual) and the 8069 Backhoe (don't remember that one as I bought a bunch just for parts) Working on a large truck chassis (4x double 3739c01 wheels at the back, 4x 3739c01 steerable (<- is that a word?) at the front) which will probably weigh around 3-4 kgs. Not sure what goes on the top .. maybe a crane ... My idea is to use brickbuild gearrack motorcontrolled outriggers for the horizontal movement and pneumatic actuators (4688c01 as I only want one inlet) for the downward movement. I will use a compressor for the pneumatics, but would an (or several) airtanks be an advantage here? I'm wondering if four of those 4688c01 can push up 3-4 (or more) kgs? Bad idea? I'd luv some feedback and pointers to great MOCs that do the same or better Also, would like to know what is regarded as the best TLG designed (manual) outriggers I'm really only interested in outriggers that perfom well and can actually lift the vehicle. My 855 is somewhat lacking in this regard Thank you in advance Cheers, Ole
