EDIT 08/22 - CURRENT STATE : Here is a truck I just made (well, it actually took me several days) while being confined. I don't like to take apart my sets on display to MOC so I had to do with just a bunch of spare part I had, hence the strange color scheme and some questionable building technics and aesthetic choices (for example, I didn't had anything to make the front radiator grill so i had to improvise...) I wanted to make an American style Truck, inspired by the 5571, 5591, 8285 and more recently 42078, and remote controlled so I can have a little fun with it. Please don't be to harsh, this is my first Technic MOC that didn't end at the prototype status. The original goal was to test my new Buwizz but I finally used only original Lego PF element, because I rather use a physical remote than a smartphone. It is powered by a L motor (with the drivetrain as follow : Motor---16T / 16T---20T / differential / 20T--20T / differential) ) and steered with a servo, with a decent speed and a good steering lock. The IR receiver and standard AA battery box are housed in the back of the cab, and the latest can slide up for replacement by tilting the foldable spoiler forward. The spoiler can also be folded all the way down to make the cabin roof flat. The doors can be opened and the hood can be lifted, even though there is no fake engine underneath because that's where I furst intended to put the Buwizz. (Actually there is still enough room for it so I could convert the truck to a Buwizz model and remove all the biggest section of the cab for a more lightweight truck. :-) I could also run an axle under the cabin to the engine compartment and run a fake engine from the exposed 16T gear... A lot of work, thoughts, trial and errors went into the building of this truck, so I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do. There is still A LOT room for improvement, but unfortunately I was limited by the parts I had. Almost all of my grey and black liftarms and technic connectors whereused in the process ! I am not entirely satisfied by the roof of the cabin in the IR receiver area, which is a bit messy, and I really wish I had DBG curved panel for the sides instead of LBG ones. And of course, I wish I could replace the ugly black plate at the front with a proper truck grill. I also have to add a fifth wheel, as it is not able to pull anything in this configuration. It should be easy anyway, as I have a lot of mounting option at the rear (the black panel is only there for aesthetic purpose). I just have to figure out something with the parts i have left... In the end I like very much how it turned out though, and I may consider a bricklink order to fix the aforementioned issues once the lock-down is over. In the mean time, any comment and suggestion for improvement is welcome ! :-) EDIT : now with a running fake engine !

Hi everyone It has been a little while since I have posted anything, but I wanted to share my latest model with you. GoPro HERO Session Camera Dolly and Panning Rig This model is a dual purpose dolly and panning rig for a GoPro HERO Session camera. It uses a single chain to control both the linear movement of the camera (dolly) and/or the rotational movement of the camera (panning). My YouTube video explains how this works in detail: Please let me know what you think. PS. For other models that I haven't posted on Eurobricks, please check out my YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/user/slfroden). Thanks
Camera Rig wagon
marook posted a topic in LEGO Train TechHi All, Wanted to use my Contour cameras filming the running train, so had to MOC up a quick camera rig wagon. Here is a bit of pictures for inspiration.. The wagon itself.. LEGO Train Camera Rig wagon 3 by Marook, on Flickr Camera mounted, behind other wagon: LEGO Train Camera Rig wagon 6 by Marook, on Flickr Now, maybe it should be modded to house a camera crew.. ;-) It might need some ballast, as it easily tips over if the train runs too fast in curves.. ;-) And watch out for bridges and tunnels.. !

Lego Rare Set Help!
pcvando posted a topic in LEGO TownHello everyone! I need some information on this Lego set. It is called "Ramboll Oil" and it is a Micro Oil Rig set. It is unnumbered. It was released in 2008. I was told that this set was given away at an Oil event in Denmark in 2008. I have also heard that there were less than 50 ever produced, and I assume even less have survived, since they were not given to Lego collectors, only to Oil company executives and employees who attended the show, most likely not taking care of the set, and throwing away the box. I need some help clearing up how many were actually made, and how much it is worth? If there were less than 50 ever made, this is a very rare set indeed. I have one that is sealed inside, but the box seals have broken. I have someone expressing great interest in it, but I am unsure what it is worth. I could be sitting on a few bucks, or a gold mine. I have no clue. I have been told that one sold for over a thousand a few years ago, but it was sealed. I would appreciate any help! Thanks!
