  1. Hello everyone. At the beginning of the year, looking for inspiration to build a new model when I finished Challenger, I decided to build a self-propelled sprayer. The decision was dictated by the fact that there were practically no such machines in Lego world. Shortly after I built the chassis, there was a real flood of these machines. I remember three MOCs were published at eurobricks. My enthusiasm dropped down a bit until I realized that they lacked one very important function. I present Amazone Pantera 4502. The original, let's say, honestly it has charm because of the chubby, smiley face. However, the most characteristic function of these machines is the change in the clearance. This was missing in previously published models, so I set a goal to add such a function. Which is why I approached the issue of machine drive fairly originally. Drive and control The original has all-wheel drive, so this function could not be missing. Adjustment of the ground clearance forced such a construction, which will be as high as possible. In this way, instead of relying on the reducers that take up a lot of space I came up with the idea that since I use large wheels, they can be used as part of a large reducer, so the drive is transmitted not directly to the axle but to the roller repulsion wheels I use in every model. A big reduction that there is no jumping effect while driving. The model moves thanks to the XL engine. The steering function has been limited to controlling two axes at once with the medium motor. The original can be turned in three ways: the front axle, two or dog walk :) Clearance adjustment The sprayer does not really change the clearance. Only the bodyshell mounted on four linear actuators is lifted. Everything is drive by a medium motor. Simple but effective :D Appearance Of course, as I usually do, I focused on the visual side of the model. The choice of color was not easy. As far as orange is orange, I thought about the type of green colour. On the one hand, the usual green, no problem with accessibility and the mass of elements on the other is beautiful, hellishly expensive and collected all over Europe, but how reflective of the original Bright Green color. I do not regret that I had to collect building blocks from several countries, the effect is staggering. The biggest challenge was the construction of the front bumper. I hope you like it :) I invite you to watch photos and short video: Video:
  2. Hi fellow Eurobrickers, when we wait for 42069, 42068 and 42053 sets review, I use opportunity to present one of my WIP projects that I'm currently working on for about half a year. It is a 1:17.5 model of John Deere R 4038 Self propelled sprayer, but equipped with flotation tires, so I can enjoy mocing with Xerion tires. At the moment I'm not sure if there will be fake sprayer or spreader, will see what future brings. Major difference from original is the drive which I can make only full mechanical. You all know that hydrostatic drive can not be made with LEGO parts. This is the first MOC where I do not have to worry that it will be to wide, since real ones are up to 4,4 meters wide which is 31 stud... This MOC will feature - fake 6 cylinder engine - all wheel drive - all wheel steering - all wheel independent suspension - front and rear pto (since I can not simulate hydraulic valves) - bonnet opening... will see what is possible. So far I've managed to make right and left wheel hubs, which you can see in following images. (sorry for bad image quality, I'll make better images when front axle will be finished, which I plan this week). On the right side of every image you can see something like building steps (not real instructions, but kind of help if someone wants to build it). Any kind of comment, critics is wellcome. Thank you
