They call those who ride them "rednecks". But while you may ponder whether the setup like this is an overkill or not, a pickup mounted on 10' wheels is a thing to remember no matter the circumstances. Features: ► forward/reverse drive ► separately-driven L6 turbocharged Diesel engine with moving pistons and cooling fan ► steering ► differential and gearing for speed ► simplified cockpit with steering wheel and IR-receiver seats. ► opening cab doors and hood ► exhaust stack ► details such as radiator with grille, front and rear lights, bull bar and reinforced bumpers, roof rack with extra floodlights, rear view mirrors, desert safety flag and fenders 42030 C-model, uses more than 80% of set's parts (loose assumption). 42 studs long and heavy. Despite its weight and only one XL motor as means of propulsion, it has a quite decent speed - it picks up (pun intended) a huge momentum - and an impressive turning radius. Engine is separately powered by L motor. Steering is much like in a video game, where both reverse and brakes are controlled by the same button. Unsuspected bonus: by accident, the bed is perfectly shaped to hold the RC control unit which consists of two RC pilots with a standard RC-car additions. The set's M motor lies dormant, waiting to be used on some extra function I can't currently come up with. It'd be hard to craft the instructions in LDD, but I'll try one day.
A few of you may have seen my earlier post about an axle, and this is where it has ended up. This is a chassis for a long wheelbase, lifted pickup truck. It features 4 wheel drive, steering, and solid axle suspension with coil shocks in the front and leaf springs in the back. Soon I will be building a Ford F-250 body for it. But enough talk, here are some pictures. Front axle, with panhard bar: Rear axle and leaf springs: Comments, criticisms, and suggestions are welcome!
Hello everyone, this is my C-model for set 9393. It was created for [TC5] Technic C-Model Contest. I've used 343 parts out of 362 (including spare parts). It is a pickup truck with dump cargo bed with V4 engine under the hood. There were high demands from the client (my 4 years old son) on the functionality. Features: HOG + steering wheel (working simultaneously) opening doors (simple "lock" - half of the axle 4 fits in the door case - a small force has to be applied) opening hood (simple "lock" - beam 2x4 is locked by cross block 1x3 - a small force has to be applied) opening cargo bed soft chassis to simulate independent suspension 2nd HOG for dumping cargo bed and/or rotating axle for attachable accessories (disable dumping by shifting gear 8 aside from the worm gear) large attachable winch special "parking feature" for overcrowded cities :-) HOG + steering wheel, doors, hood and cargo bed opening Soft chassis Dumping cargo bed Attachable accessories And finally - smart parking :-) additional info on my web pages: http://lego.vanecek....del=9393-pickup pet
Been away from building for a while; work and BF3CQ kept me all too busy. But I couldn't help myself picking up the pieces and build a Lego house something. Somehow it puts my mind at ease and makes me relaxed... Anyway, here you go, without further delay: Piston; a hover pickup truck inspired by 'Retro-futurism'.
