    The city project keep growing

    Hello there, after a short break, I can now show you the new update of my digital city project. This time i added the new book store to the city and expanded the roads. I also changed and added some details you told me. Therefore I changed the subway entrance to an emergency exit and added the road construction site. Feel free to watch the building video below. I´m happy if you do cause it would help my little channel to grow a bit :) Below the video I also posted the current pictures of the city. The city layout in the overview. The new book store on the right, with the expanded streets in front. The expansion. In the left, the changed emergeny exit for the subway. Also nice to see the dimensions of the road construction. The road construction in detail. From the left: The Light arrow, the generator and then the open part with pipes. In the mid the workers put there unused equipment and the dirt from the hole. I hope you enjoy the new added part of the city. Let me know if you do and tell me if there are points of improvement :)

    City Update Nr.3

    Hey there, this is the 3rd update of my digital city project. Because the streets where empty all the time, I started to bring some life into the city. I added traffic lights, street lamps, trash container, bicycle stands and other cool stuff. I also created some small stories on the street like the skateboarder who's racing through the city. Some of the impressions are shown on the pictures below the video. If you're interest in watching the update video feel free to watch it on YT: I hope you like the new addings. Let me know if there are other things I can add or improve.

    Another Lego city project?

    Hey there, I know there are countless posts on Lego cities. So why would you need another one? Let me explain my Plan: I started building MOC´s in 2020 and I love it. In the past, I posted some of the MOC´s here in this forum, like the pizza restaurant and die bakery & barber building: Now I had the idea to build a completely digital lego city from the individual houses. I could build an american themed city with moc buildings and digitally replicated lego sets .And because you don't need space to build, you would be unlimited in size. Why I only build MOC´s digital: I have noticed that many people are enthusiastic about Lego and would also like to build entire landscapes or cities. But since lego has now become very expensive, this is no longer possible for everyone. In addition, a Lego city requires a lot of space, which many people do not have, for example, in small apartments. I want to show these people that you can live out the Lego passion and create great things even without much money and space. You only need a PC an your imagination. For my MOC´s I always use the Studio 2.0 software from Bricklink. Can you tell me, if this is a good idea? Please give me feedback and tell me if I have not considered something. If you like this idea, I can imagine to post here regularly about the progress and also record the whole thing in videos on Youtube.
  4. This was a project I undertook last year during lockdown. In fairness, I got carried away with it. Originally published on New Elementary's Patreon site and then shared (in a heavily edited form) on the brickset forum... so some of you Classic Space fans here might not have seen it. I thought I would share it here (in full) just in case anyone was the slightest bit interested in my silly project! Odyssey No.918 For my fifth birthday, I was given a 918 ‘one man spaceship’. The very same 918 ‘one man spaceship’ pictured below in fact, bitten, scratched and sun damaged... but still my original set from 1979. I can only assume my juvenile self was not the same fan of that little moon logo that the adult LEGO addict is. At some stage in the past, I had nearly rubbed and scratched away the whole logo. I recently took a pragmatic decision to “restore” the slope by removing the logo entirely with Brasso and replacing it with a homemade sticker. It held no nostalgia for me as it was and it really was unusable in the state it was in. My original 918 with “restored” 3939 6x3 slope. The box is an empty one I acquired circa 2007, when a 'Classic Space LEGO' habit was affordable! During lockdown I've been rebuilding many of my old Classic Space sets with my children as an “activity” for all of us to enjoy, well, for me to enjoy ;-) ...and that’s where my old 918 comes in. Often, we have no idea where the inspiration comes from for a LEGO project but this is not one of those times. This started as an attempt to reflect the classic moon logo by building an all red version of 918 and it quickly spun out of control. I ordered the parts I didn’t already own off Bricklink and the built ‘The Redbird’ above. It was really easy acquiring all the correct elements owing to the plentiful supply of red parts. I decided to go red with a few black accents - mostly because I had a lot of the missing parts in black as spares... and there aren't 3963 three-way direction jets (space rockets) in red. I’ve subsequently found that there was a brief availability of red 4x4 cones - I assume from a pre-production run that is now sadly all bought up. With the Redbird another tricky part were the red 3940 support stands and I wasn’t sure they added anything to this variant, but the two I bought eventually found a good home elsewhere :-) Since the initial foolhardiness of the ‘Redbird’, one 918 has led to another 918, as it were. I popped these pictures of the Redbird in various places on the internet and was delighted with the reaction they garnered. Casually one evening whilst washing up, I mentioned how inordinately pleased with my red 918 I was and other people's responses to it. My wife said to me "How many different colours could you build it in?". Oh come on! Loose lips sink ships, seriously, you shouldn't say something like that to an addict! Bricklink search time! You think 918 is made up of mostly commodity parts, but some are fairly rare if you stray away into "all the colours" territory. Some are simply beginning to become rare as a result of age and its associated issues. Others are just expensive because, well, Classic Space. According to Bricklink’s inventory we are looking for a meagre 81 parts. "This is doable!" I thought "...and anyway, we're down the rabbit hole now." My first considerations were wings and slopes. “Don’t Chrome crying to me that this isn’t a full ring!” The 4x8 wedge/wing with 1x1 notch/cutout otherwise known as 3933 & 3934 (the original classic space wings) are available in a total of 16 colours. Let’s immediately forget the chrome wings that came in the 10026 ‘UCS’ Naboo Starfighter from 2000. Why? Well, to be honest, the price per wing is enough reason. Additionally they're only available in limited quantities, none are on sale in the UK and postage from anywhere else would make the cost bankrupting. Furthermore Chrome has such a limited number of parts, unless you do go the custom route, it would only ever be the wings and antenna that are possible to include. I could buy very reasonably priced custom items from one of the reliable chroming boutiques, but then where would it end?! ...I see a red car slope and I want it painted black... The 3939 3x6 slope, comes in 8 solid colours and 6 translucent ones. You need a translucent one and a solid colour one in each variant 918. The solid colour either needs to be the same colour as the wings or a nice visual companion as with the original 918's colour scheme. Surprisingly, the reintroduced 6x3 slope 58181 doesn't actually help all that much. Available in only 3 solid colours and 4 translucent ones*. The exception being its appearance in dark bluish grey... which is a pretty rare piece as a ‘parted out’ component, owing, I am sure, to its singular inclusion in 75144 UCS Snowspeeder. *Trans red is also tantalisingly available too, but again, expense made me rule it out in its unprinted form. Once I had amassed all the parts I had in my parts store, I realised that some of these spaceships were going to be easier to complete than others, and at least a couple of them were going to require a few compromises! I had most of the parts for a black one but I couldn’t decide whether I wanted a regular Classic Space black or a Blacktron variant. An extra Blacktron 918 however, would mean that I would (just) need another pair of black wings and a few yellow parts. You can see where this is going can't you? 3963 direction jets (loudspeakers) are only officially available in 8 colours and they are not plentiful in yellow, or were (at least) rare enough not to appear in pairs in the UK on Bricklink. I realised a little after the initial batch of orders that the Blacktron 918 needed a yellow cone too. The yellow 3943b 4x4x2 cone was only available in four sets including the US exclusive 6954 Blacktron Renegade... which I've seen being coveted in a fair few quarters recently. There was only one used one available in the UK at the time (gone now!) but I was able to get two new ones from a good German store for not much more than the UK price plus postage. Combined, these things and minimum order costs pretty much simultaneously meant that I ordered enough parts to make a yellow version. Brackets of the 3956 variety don’t exist in yellow (not in official sets at least), but I worked out what I think is a neat enough alternative using the new 41682 2x2 bracket in yellow and 32028 1x2 modified door rail plate. Luckily the 12 colours that the original bracket comes in covered most of the variations I wanted to make. I used the bracket solution for one other ship. There is a dark bluish grey 3956, but it only came as an 'alternate' part in 8100 and more common in that set is the light bluish grey variety! Not that expensive on its own, but only two Canadian sellers had it listed on Bricklink, and although supply on ebay looks possible within the set, I would need to spend a minimum of £8 to get it! Stealth mode ON! I knew blue was going to be fairly easy, and I had everything but a spare trans blue 6x4 plate and a spare pair of wings. The model is missing just one final 3940b blue support stand, sadly this was owing to an inventory error with one Bricklink seller. Blue is definitely one for the purists, because it’s possible to do a faithful colour correct recreation (however, I did end up substituting a pair of wings for the 6104 wedge plate). Other variants that came together reasonably easily were White and Light Grey. Again, the white should be a purist pleaser. The Light grey is actually theme accurate if not 100% part accurate, sets 6901, 6861, 6891, 1968, 6952, 6940 and 1580 all use the Trans Green/Light Grey colour scheme to great effect. Dark Red has just one part that I would love to have the appropriate replacement for. My Dark Red 918 needs the 3956 bracket, but it doesn’t exist and currently at least I can’t use my 41682 “fix”. Also, I’ll make no bones about it, I would also LOVE a dark red Classic Spaceman! Dark Grey really needs the front forks/guns (otherwise known as 3839a or 3839b and please do see Inthert‘s excellent article about that part!). It could really do with the doors too, but the black ones are okay as the chances of there ever being original dark grey doors are between pretty remote and non-existant! I always order more “used” parts than I actually need. It’s a habit I’ve formed over the last fifteen years of ordering from Bricklink. Understandably, the quality of parts can be variable, even from the same seller, also, there’s never a single seller that has all the parts I want. Almost always there is some overlap of availability of the more plentiful pieces between sellers that have the rarer parts in stock too. Long story short, I usually end up having more than I need because most Bricklink sellers are excellent. During the process I found that I had enough parts to create a few extra additions to my fleet. I already had a good supply of Light Bluish Grey wings so Neo Classic versions of the original livery was a nice variation to be able to do and also there were also parts I wanted to try out with a Redbird variant. I also find that I’m easily muddled when ordering from a few places and this leads me to mistakenly order duplicate parts (particularly when I’m balancing the best deals). I doubt I’m alone but the pictures of left and right wings (and wedges too, etc. etc.) on Bricklink confuse me too. The happy consequence of that though, has been the multicoloured ship that has naturally evolved out of the spare parts. At this point, I decided that if I could, I’d like to build as many of the possible variations as I could afford to on my LEGO budget. Where 3939 is not available at all, I've allowed a configuration of 1x3 & 4x3 slopes - you need the width in the middle to have a big enough logo! Where neither 3x6 or 4x3 are available I have combined where possible with different colour wings to limit my overall number of separate ships. Brown wings are therefore partnered with a sand green 3939 slope that I thought looked like quite a nice companion... alternate parts are available but without the red crest, this ship just doesn’t earn its nickname! I'm also still working on my sand blue, dark orange, orange and dark blue versions. Collectively there are still quite a few parts to locate for the fleet, hopefully parts to plug some of the more important gaps are on the way. Not least, the Orange Spaceman that comes in DK’s ‘LEGO® Minifigure A Visual History New Edition’ will be a wonderful addition. As with many of these endeavours, you discover just how crazy prices can be, for example, the 6x3 slope 3939 in black (that I'd ideally have for both black and blacktron) was only available in one promotional set (2998 for Stena Ferries) in '98 and would have set you back a cool £16 each, minimum, on Bricklink (at time of writing). Amazingly, there are only 5 colours of the 3479 tail wing support, so decisions must be made as there's really no way to satisfactorily work around that element in modern pieces. All but the original blue slopes have homemade "moon" logo stickers, I know, I still need to add a few more! It really has been an undertaking, and one I partially regret right now, because I’m about three months’ worth of my LEGO allowance over budget. I’m happy with the results, it’s been a nice challenge. I had pulled from spares and acquired enough wings to make the full delta wing arrangements for the whole squadron but the corresponding plates to support them were more troublesome, and despite my efforts to account for all the pieces I would need... Plates are required in 4x8, 4x4, 2x10, 2x8, 2x6, 2x4, 2x3 2x2 aaaaand 2x1 & 1x1 in various quantities and believe it or not, not all the parts are available in all the colours needed to complete this job. Others meanwhile are rare and only available for just plain demented prices, I’m looking at you Sand Blue 3024! Luckily most are possible to substitute. Similarly 1x4, 1x3, 1x2 & 1x1 bricks are also needed... although, I think just about all the colours I needed are available. Trans colours for the 3032 4x6 plate you need for the canopy are limited to two, it only appears in trans yellow and trans blue! So, naturally I have had to use solid colours for the majority of the fleet. Homemaker stove switches 4x1 3010p41 also comes in only two colours (white and light grey) and I honestly didn’t see any real reason to worry too much for a part that won’t be seen and is pretty difficult to see in the original anyway. I did buy one very reasonably priced white one though. Only one real disappointment in all of this for me was the absence of any green wings. So in the interests of making this more of a rainbow in our troubled times I clad some spare yellow wings... vive la NHS. Rainbow, well sort of ;-) Finally, I was left with a "junkyard" of extra unused parts... ...and I think “Hmmm, could I use red wings to do a pink/magenta/purple in a similar way to the green?” ...I really don’t own much purple LEGO!
  5. Flameo my fellow Avatar fans, I’m a huge fan of ATLA and I need your help. Recently I have submitted a project on LEGO IDEAS, it's the Spirit Oasis from Avatar: The Last Airbender. As you might know LEGO IDEAS is a website which allows users to submit ideas for Lego products to be turned into potential sets. So If my project reaches 10.000 supporters it may become an official LEGO Product. Many Avatar Fans including me would love to purchase another LEGO ATLA Set since the original sets from 2006 are not available anymore. Check out my project: The Spirit Oasis Project on LEGO IDEAS All you need to do is press the support button and create a free LEGO Account if necessary. Thanks a lot, Every supporter counts!

  8. Past weekend I've been searching the web for a Lego display/project... But no succes. All I can remember of it: - Pic's weren't hosted on Flickr, but hosted on something else, maybe an own server/page. - It was a collaboration of various builders in a cyberpunk/futuristic/dystopian city setting. - Made somewhere between the years 2005-2009, 'cause it was one of the reasons I got into Lego again. - Similar to Zero Hour on Highway 44 & A Bus Stop In Bucharest in terms of style & looks. Wondering if any of you guys & gals on Eurobricks might know?
  9. Hi, With my friend Aeros67, we decided to start a new project based on a steampunk world, named "Uchronia Vaporium". Short story: "Steam reigns in this world where two factions "clash" to extract all the power: on one side, the Continentals, a military faction that dreams only of conquests, seek to appropriate the plans of a new generation of self-propelled motor-booster, invented by the Islanders' faction, explorers who aspire only to live in peace and harmony. But everything is not so simple..." Here are the first pieces of this project : * The Skyplane : * Insula, the main place of the Islander's faction : Flickr album here : https://www.flickr.com/photos/stephle59/albums/72157687957606263 We will publish more pics soon.
  10. This I work on now together with my husband. Jeep Wrangler With extra big tires. (My job for living is sell tires in a garage..) It is sheepo. We shall use Sbrick to Control it.
  11. Hello everyone, some days ago i was looking some projects on kickstarter and i found this: It is called "Flexo", and it is thought to add many new ways of building to Lego, it consist in 2 parts, a custom brick with connections, and a tendom-like part which enables movements as flexing, twisting, bending and bouncing: This project could give more awesome functions to normal buildings, which wouldn't be posible or easily achieved with normal bricks, with the Flexo parts you can make small vehicles suspensions, suspended bridges, trampolines, catapults, brick built conveyor belts and many other things. The project has been already launched and will be founded in Kickstarter: https://www.kickstar...building-bricks So, share your thoughts about this project (I posted this topic because i didn't find an already existent one of this project, if it was already posted or this is not the right forum for this project, i ask for the moderators to delete or move this topic to another forum)

    HUGO CABRET

    HUGO CABRET Hugo Cabret by Cristiano Grassi, su Flickr This i my small tribute to a great movie, Hugo Cabret, by Martin Scorsese. The movie is based on Brian Selznick's graphic novel "The Invention Of Hugo Cabret". Hugo Cabret by Cristiano Grassi, su Flickr It’s about a boy who lives alone in the Gare Montparnasse railway station in Paris in the 1930s. His died father has left behind notebooks, including his plants to finish an automaton found in a museum. Hugo seems somewhat a genius with gears, screws, springs and levers, and the mechanical man is himself a steampunk masterwork of shining steel and brass. Hugo Cabret by Cristiano Grassi, su Flickr During the story Hugo meets many people including a girl named Isabelle with which he will share his secrets, and her uncle Georges. This old man is none other then the immortal french film pioneer Georges Melies, who was also the original inventor of the automaton. Hugo Cabret by Cristiano Grassi, su Flickr This is also a tribute to the great cinema and its first pioneers. It will be a nice idea include a tile with a graphic that represent Georges Melies most famous short film "A Trip To The Moon" (1902) with the ship that pokes the man in the moon in the eye. Hugo Cabret by Cristiano Grassi, su Flickr If you have never watched this movie I strongly suggest to take the time and watch it. It doesn’t represent only the story of a boy, but mostly it is an analogy about the sense of life, putting the emphasis on how much each person contribution is important in the world. Hugo during the movies states: “I like to think that the world is a whole big unique equipment. You know equipment are made with the exact number pieces they need, consequently I come to the conclusion that if the world is a unique equipment, I personally have a reason to be here and the same is for you!” Hugo Cabret by Cristiano Grassi, su Flickr In reference to my creation, I have tried to incorporate as many details and references to the movie as possible. You can find Hugo Cabret, Isabelle, Georges Melies with his camera, the automaton, the mechanic mouse, many mechanisms, the clock, the heart shape keys. All the mechanisms on the left work as the same as the one in the central column, some with a continuous movement other with an alternate movement in order to simulate the goes by of the time. Hugo Cabret by Cristiano Grassi, su Flickr Because I am not an expert of LEGO Technic I was not able to make the mechanisms of the clock to work, so they are there only for a visual purpose. In the event that this project would be made I am sure that LEGO designers would find a way to make it work. I am here to ask to vote for my idea, a new project based on a wonderful movie with a deep message and please forgive my skills about making mechanisms work! Hugo Cabret by Cristiano Grassi, su Flickr This project could become an official LEGO set if it gathers 10000 votes.

  13. Hi. I'm new to this forum section, I usually read the Train Tech section. But this time I want present my small projects based on Disney Classics. I've added them on LEGO Ideas, but if they will reach 10000 supporters, the credit will be all to my children. They are dedicated to Pinocchio, The Sword In The Stone and Bambi. I hope You like and Support them on LEGO Ideas. https://ideas.lego.com/projects/132929 https://ideas.lego.com/projects/133142 https://ideas.lego.com/projects/132855 LEGO Disney Pinocchio Ideas project by Cristiano Grassi, su Flickr LEGO Disney Sword in the Stone Ideas project by Cristiano Grassi, su Flickr LEGO Disney Bambi Ideas project by Cristiano Grassi, su Flickr
  14. Today, I found a video from our good friend Sariel about a new, Lego compatible motor system called RCBRICKS, from a startup of the same name. These motors look quite unlike PF motors, and seem to be based off of high torque hobby servo motors, and as such are quite capable. Watch the video for more information. (It's in Polish, but the subtitles are just fine, and in English.) Here are the Pros and Cons, as far as I can see: Pro: Lots of power Highly responsive Great range Should be relatively inexpensive. Compatible with any kind of RC gear. Con: Not compatible with Lego PF system in any way. RC receivers and transmitters are expensive. Questionable battery choice. Motors are entirely new shapes, and not readily compatible with the system, meaning that they are not drop in replacements Unproven startup. Receivers and batteries are not Lego compatible. I don't know, they sound okay, but the thing is, what most people have problems with is either the power supply, or receivers of the Lego PF system, and not the motors. While I think it is a valiant attempt to rectify the Lego systems short range, I don't think they are going about it the right way. I am also kind of dubious about the idea of using a USB batter pack for this, as it is not really Lego compatible, and has to be awkwardly rubber banded in place. It would be preferable if there were a way to go from RC standard to LPF standard, as having all new motors might alienate people who just want a drop in PF receiver replacement, like SBrick. What do you guys think?
  15. ...and I'm a very fan of LEGO since I was a little child! Now I'm 35 and I've rediscovered the pleasure of this game thanks to Internet and the Digital Designer. I have uploaded a couple of projects on the Ideas site; one of them became a "staff pick" few days ago and is acquiring a great number of supporters. It's THE PARTHENON. If you like it you can support it too here: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/102120 Cheers! Marco
  16. I currently have one project/set started that I'll be bricklinking and getting parts from my own bricklink inventory to save on cost. But I'm curious how many projects going on at one time is to many. There are several projects/sets I want to complete. With that is mind I'm considering working on 3-5 projects/sets at a time at. At the same time I'll be concentrating on 1 but still ordering pieces for the others to help saving on shipping cost. So how many projects do you work on at one time? I should also add that the projects I'm working on rather large in size and most consist of at least a thousand pieces, mostly Star Wars and Technic sets. Thank you in advance.
  17. Hello everyone. This is my first project/submission for the LEGO ideas site. https://ideas.lego.com/projects/92483 I am also doing the troso prints but they will be done in a week so I did not want to wait and added the prject already however I will update the pictures later. You can see the troso designs (very simple - clasic style) on one fo the pictures. Let me know your feedback.
  18. Hello again! From the beginning of December 2014 LEGO gave me an opportunity to play with new Bionicle 2015 pieces. 50 Kilos. In return I had to build some MOCs and sent them my photos. LEGO gave me 2 weeks of pleasure. After that time I had to sent them back all Bionicle 2015 pieces and all MOCs I created with them. They said they would like to use them for Public Relations purposes. But they also said I can use photos in my gallery/forum etc. If you're interested in more details, you can see my little propaganda video: ... don't forget to turn captions on! Ok, I think I made my point and it is good time to show my MOCs. I decided to post here only some basic pictures and links - that's because I don't want to make topic too huge. More infos about heroes and others in my flickr/DA descriptions: FlickR (all project Bionicle 2015 photos) DeviantArt (all project Bionicle 2015 photos, additional gallery) FlickR (my second account) (photos of 50 kilos, new Bionicle parts etc.) I also give some links related to topic on my blog. I'm sorry I didn't translate it into English but I think it my be more practical to show MOCs' photos in that way. I don't think that the text is interesting - on flickR/DA should be all of my story in English. 1. Dark Lord BRICKSHELF A topic on my blog (some extra photos). The Bush of Power: 2.

  19. Dear community members, Let me introduce myself, I am Zanferia, a newbie on Eurobricks but also a French student trying to graduate! I joined this community because I am a LEGO Fan but also for my studies I worked at LEGO as an intern 2 years ago so when I started my graduation project on online brand communities I could not see a better community to work with than a LEGO one ! For my graduation project, I need to administer about 400 questionnaires to members of a community. That is why I need your help ! Of course the questionnaires are anonymous, and answers will be used only for my report. [At the end, it asks for an email address but you DO NOT have to give it, you can just check the “NO” box and submit the questionnaire] If you have any question about this project feel free to ask! Here is the link to my questionnaire, it takes about 5 minutes: http://www.thesistoo.../web/?id=428554 This project means the world to me as I need it to graduate and with your help, I know I can do it . Thank you for taking the time to read me, have a nice day Zanferia

  21. So I'm wanting to start a MASSIVE Star Wars project. Not really sure what direction I want to go. Maybe a epic battle scene, perhaps a base with dozens of ships ready for combat, or something else really cool. I know this will be a costly project and will probably take me several months to complete. Not to mention I'll be moving within the 12-15 months so don't want to get to in-depth with it. My currently goal is to mostly stock pile the stuff for the project. I currently have a modest 30k piece bricklink store and I am considering taking the pieces I need for this project from the store. If I take this route I will continue to pull pieces from sets I part out to add to the project and add the remaining to the store to help offset the cost. My other option would be to just leave everything in the store, continue adding and then once I move pull the inventory for the project. My problem with this is I would hate to sell pieces and then turn around and buy them all over again. I rather deal with shrinking my inventory now and then slowly regrowing my store back up. I have also compiled a list of all the sets I'd like to use in the project and I am considering adding them all to my want list in bricklink so I can keep track of my progress as I accumulate the pieces for the project. I have never taken on a project of this magnitude, so does it sound like I'm on the right track or is there a better way I could go about doing this. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  22. Hello any renderers, I know I could probably do this myself but even after reading countless tutorials and trying to download the right software I just can't do it. I have an Ideas project that I'd really like rendered because the transparent pieces look awful with LDD's screenshots example: Sorry if it's any trouble but it'd really be a big help if someone could render my project. If you are interested, that's awesome and I'll send you the lxf!

    Best Landscaping Directions

    What are some of the best ways to make landscaping for an upcoming project I am builing about lego military, along with this I was wondering if anyone had any building instructions for military vehicles from today such as humvees and jets to go along with these landscaping ideas. Thanks-Kartracer21
  24. So, I am just in awe when I see some of the MOCs on this forum... I'd really like to get into building some awesome ships, lighthouses, and ports eventually... But I'm not quite there yet... So, what do you think a good "entry-level" MOC to make for this forum would be? I'm thinking about something that is just on the border of "advanced," yet not too complex. ~Deme
  25. New Half-axles for Lego Trial Trucks - Tatra T813 4x4 RC Trial Truck V4 I accidentally reversed the gears of the portal hubs of this pic. For Lego Tatra T813 4x4 RC Trial Truck V4 I decided to make new half-axles, more resistant than they already were the previous ones, so as to transmit the maximum torque ratio possible from wheels to ground. The photo of the axle shafts made ​​with Lego bricks will be available by early next week. Project Starting from my previous axles, which had little resistance in the attack for wheels, I added the portal hubs from Lego set 8110 Mercedes-Benz Unimog U400, made ​​specifically for this use. In the portal hubs I put gear reductions for a total gear ratio of, together with other gear reductions in the transmission, 9:1, then, nine complete revolutions of the pinion of the motor, the wheel it will perform a complete one. Lego Tatra T813 4x4 RC Trial Truck V4 My new axles shafts will be used by Lego Tatra T813 4x4 RC Trial Truck V4; thanks to them will greatly improve its performance and by the end of July will publish a new article and a new video dedicated to Lego Tatra T813 V4.
