  1. Hi all, this time I'd like to show you something that is a bit different. It is more a study, or an experiment than a real model. It's is a very small narrow gauge locomotive, inspired by an hand-made creation of Mr. Akio Inoue (who is a famous live steam builder in Japan). The locomotive is depicted on Mr. Mori Iroshi site, which is of great inspiration to me. There's also a Youtube channel (simply search AKUBI LR on Google, you''l find it immediately). Let's say it is a mix between a DEKI-3 and a Rhatische-Bahn GE 2/2 162. Once it was yellow, now it has RhB colors. It's a bit "Japanese" since it has a super-deformed body, it is more tall than long. "Power" (HA HA HA ) is coming from a 9v micromotor mounted upside-down, and there's a working headlight. It needs a battery car to work. I use it on black narrow-gauge Lego curved track, but I recently discovered that LEMAX track has the same gauge and offers straight tracks (no switches, sorry ). It is sloooooooooooooooooooow! I hope you like this little,nerdish thing! It's name is PKZIP (like the file compression archiver for DOS PCs of the past)

    STAR WARS mini MicroMOCs

    DEAR LEGO STAR WARS FANS!!!! If you have found your way to this account, you are either interested in the world of LEGO Micro-building... or you just clicked on a wrong link somewhere and are now very surprised to be surrounded by these tiny marvels of creations... or not. If the former is true then, welcome. In 2011 I received my first STAR WARS Advent Calendar for Christmas, and was blown away by the sheer ingenuity and accuracy capturing the looks of iconic ships in truly micro form. Naturally, I had to have a go myself! I built a few... I was pleased... I built some more... and here we are nearly 6 years later, and I am still building them. I began by reading my first LEGO STAR WARS Visual Dictionary (DK) and building a micro of EVERY SINGLE SET IN THE BOOK! With that now exhausted, I moved onto the 2014 edition with more sets... I built all of those too. So now I just build a micro of every new star wars set that has, is, or will come out since 2014, amongst other iconic and less well-known ships from STAR WARS 'non-canon' such as the Old Republic, Freemaker Adventures, Yoda chronicles to name but a few. With a back catalogue of over 270 mini micros and counting, this truly is the World's largest Encyclopaedia of STAR WARS micro kits. Enjoy! -- JamesArts It would mean a lot to me as a budding MOC builder if you checked out my flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/151467275@N04/albums and my YouTube Channel (JamesArts Bricks UK): https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCmYOMZz6DyvM1euY2qrRfpA/featured?disable_polymer=1
  3. While working on another fire department truck, which I will present you soon, the idea for a neat small vehicle came to my mind. So I interrupted the other building process for ten minutes and created this fire department turntable ladder. http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=572608 I consists of 24 parts (26 parts with nozzle and "water" as shown on Picture above). Maybe we can renounce the mandatory video this time... The picture with the bottom view will reveal all the intricate mechanisms ;-)

    1/43 Small Scale Cars

    Hey there, just noticed the scaleres finally got their own forum which is great news When it came to my small scale of 1/43 its always been kind of on the edge of being somewhat "good with minifigs" yet not really made for them, so i mainly posted into town forum despite them not being the standard town cars apporach. The figs mainly serve as a size relevance here. 6 studs is 2m. A minifig is 1,7 m high. Now onto some pictures of my recent ones, i hope you enjoy :) Ferrari on model stand by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr Ford Speed Champions by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr Familia Lamborghini by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr ambulance US by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr Vintage Racing Porsche by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr Sports SUV by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr T3 German Ambulance by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr A Smart choice 1 by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr VW T1 redesigns by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr
  6. Good grief, this thing has been sitting on my desk for over a year now, and I just now got around to taking pictures of it. tsk tsk. Anyway, this is a failed attempt at making a ring crane using a hailfire droid wheel as a base. It is loosely based upon a Sarens SGC-120, and uses a 3 way reversable distribution gearbox, much like 42042. Each selector controls one function, forward and reverse. The crane features 3 winches, controlling the boom luffing, the luffing jib, and the hook. The winches are run by one M motor. The counterweight is 5 PF AA battery boxes, plus some old train weights, and some ball bearings. Now, I mentioned that this is a failed attempt, and there are a good number of reasons for that. Firstly, the gearbox connecting the M motor to the distribution box was very weak and overly complex. Then, this model had several critical structural flaws. The main boom wasn't nearly stiff enough, and would warp with the slighted provocation. The individual sections were strong enough, but the connections to get them in a triangular shape were not. Then, the main frame of the crane was very weak, and bent a lot under the weight of the main boom. Same thing goes for the rollers on the base ring. They were not structurally sound at all, and due to that, motorized slewing was not possible. Lastly, the hook was not heavy enough to put tension on the hook line, and so the lines of rope going to the hook would jump at the slightest provocation. Still, even if this did fail, it looked impressive, and I learned from it. IMG_20170813_202442189 by Saberwing007, on Flickr The crane, in all of its glory. Ring Crane 002 by Saberwing007, on Flickr The gearbox. Each selector controls a winch. Ring Crane 003 by Saberwing007, on Flickr The M motor. This was one of the weak points of the model. Not the motor, but the gearbox it is attached to. Ring Crane 004 by Saberwing007, on Flickr The rollers. Not stable enough. Ring Crane 005 by Saberwing007, on Flickr The counterweights. There were two more battery boxes, but they got used for something else. IMG_20170813_202804340 by Saberwing007, on Flickr The crane base, without the booms or counterweight. Ring Crane 007 by Saberwing007, on Flickr The winches. Ring Crane 008 by Saberwing007, on Flickr The frame bending. IMG_20170813_210407144 by Saberwing007, on Flickr The gearbox extracted. Ring Crane 010 by Saberwing007, on Flickr The underside of the gearbox. It's dead simple, aside from the connection to the M motor, which was more complex than it needed to be, and would fail with minimal provocation. Well, that's it. There will be no video, as this got demolished for my TC12 entry. Enjoy, as much as you can enjoy a train wreck like this.
  7. Good day! Sometimes I make MOCs that don't deserve a topic, or simply have WIP concepts that I don't publish . This will serve as a place where I post my WIP creations that may end being a MOC , and small sized MOCs which are too simple to post a video or create a topic.
  8. Just a little thing. Mashed the Sebulba's Podracer planet series set with some other parts lying around to create a custom swoop for him, so he's not lying around going unused. :P
  9. Good day. This used to be one of my prototypes for the e formula competition. But after making the chassis I decided to put a BuWizz in . Backstory: "This is one of the best known racing cars on Xerox , developed by Xewyz Industries. Stabilized Zirum Crystals' energy is used to power it , obtaining constant and (almost) infinitely lasting power. It has a turbo system to increase the output speed." Real statistics: -2x m-motors for drive , with a 3:1 gear ratio -1x m-motor for return to center steering -BuWizz Using (underestimated now) m-motors , it picks up quite high speeds and is a lot of fun to drive around ,even in normal BuWizz mode. Here is a LDD model -> download A quick preview of what to expect whe the full video is finished: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GaVM6J2oFvI
  10. Emile Perreault told William to wait outside. The Corrie-turned-Oleonder agreed, putting on a mean mug to discourage anyone from disturbing his captain. "It doesn't even have a table," Elise protested. "The bed looks big enough for one." "Elise, it's only temporary, you know that," Emile returned. "Before you know it, we'll have the large house I promised you we'll get. You need to trust me." Elise pursed her lips. "Where are you to sleep?" This was going to be the hard part, Emile knew. "I'm not going to be here oft-" "Emile..." "I know, I know." Emile took a breath before continuing. "Being a privateer is the best way for me to make money right now. And I can't take you on The Athena. It's too dangerous right now. Once I get a bigger, stronger vessel you can come along. But not before. On the brightside, you have a better oven than back home. You'll always stay warm in a house as small as this. It's temporary. I promise." After a moment, Elise nodded in acceptance.
  11. In the Settlement of Astrapi, a new statue has been erected for those too busy to get to the Temple of Zeus that day. If passing this statue, the faithful can pray or stop to have a chat. If it's a lovely day, why not? Some old peddlers even may stop by telling you a secret, if you the coin of course. They say that Zeus faces the direction of the secret relic, but nobody has been able to locate it, at this point at least. Those peddlers seem strangly like Eslandolers...

  13. Hey Guys, I have been working on a very small set-up that would both allow a number of modulars and some city prices as well as my TRAINS! While I have all the trains powered at this point many will not see any action but I am very happy with how it has turned out and already planning my next modular buy!

  14. Hello Everyone! I'm back with a nice little MOC that i built a couple days ago. I actually first built it last year but never had the time for pictures, so I rebuilt it from my memory. It has rear wheel drive via one buggy motor and 20t/diff gear combo. It has all wheel independent suspension-since I wanted the front and rear width to be the same, the rear isnt double wishbone. It's extremely light and has servo steering. All powered by one of my 10 volt batteries. I had to use some interesting bracing techniques in order to connect and strengthen the whole car with as little pieces as possible, but I couldnt find a simple enough way to brace the front suspension to the chassis so in a hard crash the front axle may come off. Pics: ^it gets quite dirty after prolonged outdoor use the front bull bar (same one from the 8048 buggy set) bends inward during a front end hit, so it definitely helps protect the car if it loses signal from IR receiver: In order for weight saving I used flex axles, which give a nice tight grip around the battery: Money shot suspension showcase ^when resting the rear suspension has neutral camber, when it is raised it has slight positive camber, but when leaning into a turn and it compresses, it has negative camber, which can actually help handling a bit: overall it has good ground clearance for its size, which allows for good performance on bumpy asphalt and light offroading, but for offoading it relies on wheel speed rather than low speed torque driving outdoors and through fresh rainwater puddles eventually collects dirt and water, which can get into places where you don't want it... ^but luckily dirt will fall of after a good shake once it has dried and water, as long as it is fresh rain/streamwater won't ruin motors/connectors, only pool/saltwater/grimy water will mess up motors, but I made sure the battery stayed dry And here's some burnout/drift shots: my new desktop background: ENJOY!
  15. Hi Guys! I would like to present you my latest build. Not usual small excavator truck. The target was to create small excavator truck with as many functions as possible. I wanted to build truck with 8 functions, to use all IR ports, but in this small scale, I only manage to put 5 and I put 3 functions to Dump truck in same scale. It was quite hard to put all functionality to such a small body, but the result is worth it. It has 5 PF controlled functions: 4x2 driving, steering with great steering radius, rotating platform, controlling beam and controlling bucket. Is very well playable and It can dig a sand/brick and it is enough powerful to take itself out of the ground. It's robust enough to survive young child play. More info about Dump truck can be found on my blog lego.tomashubik.com Some photos: More photos and indo are here: Excavator truck Dump truck VIDEO COMMING SOON...
  16. So this was a quick, fun project. I gave myself the weekend to build the smallest RC car I could. My goal was 4 studs. This seemed reasonable since a battery box and SBrick are both 4 studs wide. With the width set in place, I quickly realized that making two connected parts would be the way to go so the model naturally became a camper van/RV with a trailer. The main car holds 2 micromotors and the trailer has 1 old-style battery box with the SBrick directly on top. More photo's here. Assembly photos are here. PS: I must also thank Mbmc as some of his micro RC MOCs were a good inspiration for this project.
  17. Hi Guys, some time ago, I built this truck http://www.eurobrick...howtopic=120767 and I was thinking, how it will looks if I will make something similiar, but smaller? And this is the result. I'm happy how it turns out. It's fun to drive and i could finally use 43.2mm tires again. Some specs: Parts count: 790 Dimensions (W/H/L): 13/19/38 studs 8x4 Driving: 1 Medium motor 8x4 Steering: 1 Servo motor. Each axle with different angle 2 Rear axles has "pendular" suspensions Openable doors Interior So, what do you think? Short Video:
  18. This is a very small, robust, reliable and easy to maintain buggy. It is ideal for letting your kids play with all day. The design goal was to make a robust car as small and simple as possible. This means most of all no suspension system since that would require the use of CV joints. They are known to break and while they work nicely in LEGO super cars that you carefully push around the floor, it does not work with kids trying to race and crash their RC cars. CV joints will break. Of course it is possible to create a LEGO RC car with suspension and even four wheel drive/steering, but then you end up with LEGO’s own RC Crawler. The goal was to keep it small, simple and robust. One of the problems I encountered when letting kids play with the RC cars all day is that the axles in the differential tend to slip and move out. I hence build a differential assembly in which the axles are completely locked in and cannot move. The worst thing that could still happen is that a wheel comes off which is easy to fix. The car uses only one L-Motor and is pretty fast for that. The turning radius is very tight and the car is just fun to drive. The differential makes it perfect to drive around tight corners. The heavy battery pack is right on top of the back axle, giving it the best friction. Well, it does not accelerate like an F1, but it might still make a small difference. Building instructions, LXF, and further information are available.
  19. My new creation – Gas Service Truck based on UAZ-452, known as 'Bukhanka', which translates as 'Bread Loaf'. You can guess why. The goal of this creation was inventing the smallest 4x4 chassis using standard springs for suspension. Features & Functions: - 4x4 - XL for drive - Servo for steering - LiPo for power - IR-receiver - Live axle suspension - Panhard rod for each axle - Openable doors with locks - Telescopic ladder Video: More images:
  20. Star Wars Anthology Contest - Small (32x32) Entry The Regent of King Prana - 01 by Ryan McBryde, on Flickr A job for King Prana himself! Han's excitement was surpassed only by that of his new intern Steve. They would need lots of interns now to bring in so many Rathtars. Soooo many Rathtars, he could hardly believe how lucky he was to get such a job. Times had been tough, and Chewie wouldn't quit grumbling about their diminished status in the galaxy. Han's loyal first mate was still complaining that only ten years ago they would have been meeting with King Prana himself, not some lowly satellite Regent of Exploration and Acquisition. The Regent of King Prana - 02 by Ryan McBryde, on Flickr The Regent's headquarters was a busy operation. Explorers were always coming and going. The living quarters were rarely occupied for more the few days needed to personally debrief their missions and resupply their ships' stores. Many of the explorers were former Imperial Survey Corps officers and pilots who were use to the independence of their ships and the short, unwanted intermissions at home.

    Classic vs. New Lego airplanes

    Hello Everyone I would like to discuss a point that many adult Lego plane enthusiasts probably think about. What is better the old classic smaller planes of the past, or the new large and more realistic planes of today. I am going to try to give an unbiased opinion because I have had many smaller planes as a child. In my Opinion the older classic planes are better for airports in city layouts because they are smaller and allow for realistic size airports and runways. They are also great because they use few specialized parts. On the other hand the new larger planes are much more realistic and allow for more play inside with over 15 seats in most of them. They are also better for layouts purely dedicated to the airport. It allows for massive and impressive airports.They are also more fun for smaller children who think bigger is always better. This is only my opinion. Share yours below and provide an opinion. Thank you in advance.

    [MOC] Usonian Style House

    I actually built his MOC towards the end of the summer, but I have only just found the time to document it. It is a small building built to the Usonian Style. The Usonian Style House was first designed in mid thirties by American Architect Frank Llloyd Wright. They were designed to control costs during the economic depression, Wrights Usonian houses had no attics, no basements, little ornamentation and utilised open plan living. I hope you like my attempt, more images on my Flickr.

  24. Hi there guys! It's been a while since i built something, mainly due to grand theft auto V ahah... Anyway, i got sponsored by an italian lego shop called Mangiobricks so i decided to build something with their logo like it was a racing team :D I got inspired by Egor and his sunset truck so i decided to build my own version of a trophy truck! It has 95% tubolar chassis to keep it light and simple and the body can be dismounted completely, without compromising the rigidity of the chassis itself. Suspensions are really soft to absorb every bump and avoid rolls what else...the RC motor does its job, the truck drifts on smooth surfaces :D Measures: 30,5cm x 14,5cm x 13,8cm Weight: 550g Features: - Front independent suspensions - Differential - Tubolar chassis video:
  25. Hi guys! I'd start saying this thread is more to ask you some suggestions than to show you the model itself :P I think i already told you that the shop wich is sponsoring me http://www.mangiobricks.com asked me to build something that they can sell as a custom model right? At first, they wanted the fiat panda i made last year but i wasn't satisfied by it due to its untidyness... so i made something that i think it's better and wich performs better than every expectations i had As it's made to be sold (hopefully) i couldn't call it with the real counterpart name....but i think it should be quite clear where i took inspiration from :P it's really simple and it's made trying to use the less amount of pieces possible to keep everything clean and tidy performances are really good, even if the most of the weight is in the back of it, it crawls really good having some nice ground clearance and good speed as well! i don't know how many of you could be interested in buying something like this as many of you are great reverse engineers :P but let's say you have the chance to buy a custom model, how would you prefer it? i mean, do you think i should make it with motors or just ready to be motorized? what else could i change to make it more attractive? should i add more functions or just stay on "less is more" concept? ill wait for your suggestions guys! in the meanwhile have a look at some pictures of it! hope you'll like it :)
