  1. The factory my dad designed in the early 2000's now has a company to occupy my version of it! Introducing Rust-eze, which is a rust remover / chrome restorer product inspired by the one seen in the CARS / PLANES universe. I'm going to use this printed part wherever you see a yellow 1 x 4 x 3 panel to represent the logo, which means two go on each boxcar, two on the semi-trailer, and one on the company sign. The theory is this: The semi-trucks bring the chemicals used to make Rust-eze to the Factory to be manufactured into the rust remover. The pallets you see on the right side are filled at this location, then loaded onto boxcars to be shipped to the packaging facility, where the 55-gallon drums are unloaded and their contents put in individual bottles for retail sale or in larger bulk quantities for use in industrial purposes. This end of the factory has a ladder to the top of the smokestack. The other end also a small water tower on top of the roof as well as the personnel door. Inside view, with the detachable roof removed. I never finished this part, and probably never will as I haven't a clue what to put in here. The loading doors do open, and were modified from the original arched doors as they couldn't fit a forklift... then again, these doors might not either! The gantry crane can roll back and forth (red arrow), to and fro (blue arrow) or raise and lower the crane hook. (yellow arrow) Since string is not available in LDD, I placed the hook on the side of the model, but the crane should use this part here in real life. This model was heavily inspired by set 8486, (Mack's Team Truck) from 2011. I changed the model to seat one mini figure at the wheel, added new headlights and license plate plus revised the fenders and enlarged the cab. The rear of the semi features a opening door and fold-down trailer stand, while the cab has two moving driver's doors. The trailer no longer has opening sides, but it does have two opening rear doors and folding stand for when the cab pulls away. Speaking of the cab, the roof of the driver's compartment comes off and both doors open. I was inspired by this photo by JB Lego to build this boxcar as seen here. They are made to haul pallets of cargo, specifically Rust-eze rust remover in 55-gallon drum containers for commercial packaging at another facility in smaller containers. I hoped this factory would be of some use for some people, as the original always has been gathering dust in the basement since it was built, as seen below: This is the original factory that was by my Dad around the years 2000 - 2004. it was built with parts from several Sand Red supplemental packs available at that time. It does not feature any interior, nor does it have a removable roof. But this thing is built STRONG: you have to really put your weight on it to press the roof together. Here is the rear of the model. Comments, questions, suggestions, and complaints are always welcome! EDIT 6/3/18: Added a "chain link" fence to the perimeter of the model for a gritty, industrial, wrong-side-of-the-tracks look.
  2. Hi eurobrickers This is what we will talking about here: a mini scale semi dump truck based on a Mercedes Arocs 6X4 and a solid tilting bed mounted on one 3 axle trailer. This time I decided to keep it small. My son asked me for something simple this time but fun to play with. So I do. I worked hard on the design of this little set. The smaller it is hardest the design is I found. I am however quiet happy with the end result. From the front view you can see I choose a contrasted color scheme for this truck. Regular blue frame, white cab and black to simulate the plastic covers and accessories of the cab. I place light, traffic signs, rear view mirror, antenna and gyro on the top. All we need to make it look good, as in real life model. The top view show the roof treatment. This part was particularly hard to find. You have a discreet HOG, the security roof trap that opens and two small panels to finish the roof line Viewed from the back you can see I managed a space for the rear window, exhaust pipe, spare wheel and a toolbox. I do not forget the back lighting with one projector but also rear stop and traffic lights. The 5th wheel is a simple pin connection. I found another system (mechanical lock) but it doesn't match perfectly the scale of the model so I decided to remove it. But there is something more about this cab...it tilts and the doors can be opened showing the interior with two seats and steering wheel (not it is not operational ) The complete model is 36X8X11 cm. I am particulary satisfied with the proportion of the whole thing. Rear view of the trailer, same detail attention than for the tractor unit. You can see at first plan the locking system of the bed's door (simple friction pin). And here is the view of the railer once lifted. The mecha is dead simple: one linear actuator in direct link with the HOG place on a real ergonomic place. Few pieces, great playability. The trailer as also a retractable parking support with simple linkage command and lock point to assure it's stability. Here it is: But that's not all. I manage the all wheel one good ground clearance as my son play with it on it's bed (often by night ) and I realized a quiet complex pendular suspention on all axle. The system is based on Pippasseyeyoyo's one developed on his own semi dump truck. I just scale it down a little . Suspention in action. the first axle is rigid on the tractor unit So here it is...do not hesitate to comment it and any good idea to improve it is welcome. Steph.
  3. This is version two of set 8486 (Mack's Team Truck) 1950's style semi truck. The model can seat one mini figure at the wheel, and features headlights, license plate, and bigger wheels. I also rounded out the front of the trailer per suggestions from Eurobricks forum members @Only Sinner and @timtosino. Thanks guys! As it is now, the cab portion reminds me of the truck from the 1970s suspense movie "Duel". (if you haven't seen it, look it up: It's Steven Spielberg's first film and is awesome!) The trailer no longer has opening sides, but it does have two opening rear doors and folding stand for when the cab pulls away. Speaking of the cab, the roof of the driver's compartment comes off and both doors open. The driver of the truck. This truck is going to go on my mid-century trains and town layout, and should be built in real bricks eventually... at that time I will update this with real pictures. Here is the file for truck, trailer and driver: LDD file If anyone is curious what the version 1 truck looked like, here is a picture of it to compare to the new one. The older version is NOT in the LDD file!

  5. OK, well the American Semi truck is a very recent MOC, but I made the European one quite awhile ago, and just never got around to uploading the pics, so.. ....here they are. European Semi truck specs: Front wheel rack and pinion steering rear 4WD only uses 2 motors, so you could build a trailer and add a/some motorized function(s) Pictures Here is the overall model Here are some pics of the front, and back. And some pics of it without the studded assemblies hiding the NXT brick. And that is it, now for the American style semi truck, and... ... the trailer with grabber Specs of American Semi truck, and trailer (with grabber) [Truck] Rear 2WD (It's on not the back axle, but the axle before it). [Truck] Opening hood. [Truck] Ultrasonic sensor for obstacle avoidance. [Trailer] Motorized grabbing arm controlled by button hidden on either side of the trailer. [Trailer] NXT Brick right, and left buttons control steering for the truck. Now the pictures, truck first. Front view of the truck View of the hood opened revealing the steering motor. Close up on the grille. Back view of the truck (revealing that the NXT brick is in the trailer, to keep the truck smaller so I would have more pieces. And now on to the trailer. Birds eye view. View from the front of the trailer And that it, I'm working on a tower crane now, if anyone wants to geve suggestions one what vehicle to build next I'm fine with I welcome that.

    [MoC] Futuristic Truck

    A recent attempt at creating a small semi, twenty three by six studs. I am happy with how the front came out. The cab is just big enough for a fully dressed minifig. The trailer has retractable support legs and an opening rear hatch. The cab can detach from the trailer and be a full vehicle in its own right (although it honestly is kinda ugly). It finally gave me an excuse to use that exhaust piece I've had laying around. Originally it was to be a typical flat nose, but those are very common semi MoCs, and I wanted to do something different, this design fits better with my vehicle style too. UPDATE: additional wheels to the rear section image by austindhinton95, on Flickr image by austindhinton95, on Flickr image by austindhinton95, on Flickr
