Let me introduce you my latest alternative model built out of set 42094 - Snow groomer! It is already my third snowcat I've built out of LEGO Technic. You can see it here next to its lil bro from set 9391. It features two manual functions: lifting snow plow by turning gear on the roof of cab lifting rear blade by turning lever behind engine cover Since set 42094 contains just one linear actuator and no worm gears I used two shock absorbers to keep rear blade in two positions - up and down. The first version of model also featured gearbox for switching between functions above operated from same place on roof of cab. I had to remove it because gears were not able to transmit huge torque necesary for pushing springs on rear blade. Building instructions are available at rebrickable.com Any comments are welcomed.
Here I am with another Bulli. This time it's something really special. An Austrian engineer recently retrofitted a 1966 VW Bus Bulli T1 with late-’60s Bombardier caterpillar tracks and a DJ sound system capable of causing an avalanche… The Adventuremobile isn’t riding on wheels anymore; instead, the Bulli body has been placed on the chassis of a 1960 Bombardier B01 Spurgrat snowcat. The T1 Snowcat can reach up to 30 mph (50 km/h) in the snow and when parked a DJ booth pops out of the freakin’ roof! Fresh mixes are bumped toward the crowd by way of a 1,000 watt subwoofer, 2 × 300 watt speakers, a five-channel Behringer mixer and a pair of Technics turntables. Let's the party begin! A vintage Ford of Germany Taunus V4 sends power to the left and right tracks via a transmission system that allows the van to move forward, backward, and spin on its own axis. The T1 Adventuremobile version is often used by the ÖAMTC, which is the Austrian automobile association. Specifically, this Bus is being used by ÖAMTC’s youth outreach program, which dabbles in dispensing safe driving advice, travel planning services and other transportation-related informations. It has been hard to make photos because the white bricks I used weren’t all new and some of them were yellowed. Also the black isn’t a easy color to shoot… Anyway I took some pictures and I hope you enjoy. More pictures, details and informations about my T1 Snowcat Adventuremobile: flickr
