[MOC] Underground Mine Scoop (42060 Alternate Model)
fritz4783 posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingGreetings all, This summer, I am away from home at an internship with a mine so the only set I had was 42060, Roadwork Crew. I've never built a technic MOC before, but I'd figure I'd try after seeing all of the machinery underground that it would be a good challenge, especially since I only had the pieces from one kit. Most of the scoops at this mine are either Sandvik or Eimco, but this model is not specifically modeled after either make. The functions include raise/lower arm, movable bucket, steering, adjustable lights and opening door. Photos are below.

Also, this is my first post, so feel free to let me know if I need to do anything differently for the future.
[MOC] The Hob Rod (Redux)
Immo posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingSome of you may be familiar with the Hob Rod, the project I was doing on and off throughout a few years. The idea was to pull a hot rod with some nice functions and details while keeping it in a ~35 stud size. Various other things and issues made it a long term project and I have no doubt this baby will be improved even further. Well, here's how it looks now. 37 studs long because of the exposed rolling chassis arms, uses Technic and System parts as you can see. Intended as a cruiser and salt flats racer - and a small tribute to the Kustom Kulture - it's based on the '30s trucks and features many details that won't let you forget about that. Raise Hob. Features: ► fake mountain V6 engine with moving pistons ► blower with chain-driven pulley (1:1.5 crankshaft-pulley ratio; 1:3.501 axle-pulley ratio) + Enderle-style bugcatcher + fake carburetor + external tachometer and oil pressure gauge ► working differential and transmission (2.334:1 crankshaft-axle ratio) ► coupled '30s style link steering connected to steering wheel and a HOG ► detailed cockpit with a steering wheel, dashboard, custom skull-shaped gear shifter and comfy channeled couch for two ► channeled and chopped body style with kustom roofline + functional bed with Moon tank ► classic radiator grille and "zoomie" exhausts, front tow bar and rear push bar and rear engine emergency shut-off lever ► locking suicide doors with internal handles and slanted edges + locking, chain-suspended bed gate ► exposed suicide front axle + wide, fake leaf spring-suspended rear axle, each wheel with fake drum brakes
