    Ferrari F40

    I have to do the video, edit and take some pics more but I think there won´t be more big changes . This is the manual one and I will do the LDD instructions for it, I think it will be for free, the RC one was for me for fight with the little space . The car is completely modular, trunk, bonnet, doors, back fender, roof, sides of the bodywork, gearbox, fake engine, rear axle, seats and chassis with the front axle. It has independent suspension with functional doors, trunk, bonnet and retractable headlights, 5 speed and reverse gearbox (Tyler Reid style) and a V8 fake engine. This is an appetizer as my style, I will update with new information. I hope you like.
  3. Hello everyone! This is my latest creation. ICARUS Supercar Introduction The name comes from a man who desired to fly higher using his technology. Many times I have tried to realize the speed what supercar MOC should perform. I needed “wing” called buggy motor, but all I had is a bunch of PF motors. So I connected motors together using “wax” called SBrick. Like Icarus of Greek myth, higher speed and torque may be lethal for the model itself... The result is here in the video! Weight: 1760g Propulsion: 4x PF L motor for rear wheel drive Steering: PF Servo motor Front and rear lights: 2x PF light Powered by: 2x SBrick and 2x 8878 rechargeable battery box Features: independent suspension for all wheels working steering wheel manually adjustable rear spoiler opening doors, hood, engine cover, glove box Drivetrain You may think it is not fast enough, but for me it was a relatively success. Surprisingly, gears and CV joints have never damaged or popped out even at the time of maximum acceleration. Although I had designed its drivetrain carefully, I was not sure if small bevel gears in differential withstand the load. Two 20T bevel gears of each side divide the load from differential equally. In this setting differential doesn't move back and forth easily. That means differential and 20T bevel gears hardly ever disengage. So they keep rotating smoothly even under high load. In this MOC there are three L motors (and two SBricks, two battery boxes, bunch of wiring) on the supposed location of V8 engine. So if someone build manual version with gearbox, there would be enough room for it. Body design As expected, building 1:10 scale supercar was very hard. Especially the body work. I've built one three years ago, but it was primitive MOC in every way. New MOC is heavily inspired by modern McLaren supercars. I tried to build their curved shapes using rather technic panels than flex axles. Front and rear light section happened to become different from the original mainly because of the positon of LED. Though finished model is not a copy of P1, I am happy with the result of realizing proper mid-engine proportion. Building instructions: http://rebrickable.c...icarus-supercar I hope you like it!
  4. I like to present you my Lego town Steinbruck. The name is from Stein=brick & bruck(old German)=bridge. This is my current layout: My MOC and MOD buildings (more detail pictures in the albums; just click the pictures to get there): I'm planning a car wash for the Service Station and will build it in the next months. I also build digital, but can't afford all of them to build with bricks. Click to album.
  5. Hello fellow Technic fans, let me present to you my tribute model to the well known, iconic set 8880 As a new member I should introduce myself, but I did that already in the forum designed for the very purpose so I just link that here http://www.eurobrick...howtopic=134093 and we can jump to the main subject. I've been encouraged by a commenter on youtube who is a member here to share this MOC of mine on this forum as maybe this will give you a rest after the frustration caused by the much anticipated 42056. Don't get it wrong, I don't mean to fill the gap it left (I read the topic too and share the feeling), but hopefully can give you a few minutes of entertainment. I admit it is a sensitive piece of history to touch, but I hope you recognize that the respect towards the original model what was driving my hands while I was designing this plastic homage. Probably some of you have already seen the video on the youtube. For those who didn't let me link it: Instead of making a new description I'll use the one that I made for the vid and pepper it with some images: The original set 8880 has been released in 1994. Sadly that time I was living my dark age (life without lego). Now it's been 4 years that I got back in business, dark age is over and this set is weightly responsible for that change in my life. First I was just reading about it on Blackbird page. Long story short I could manage to get one, and as an old school lego fan (being child in the 80's) it straight enchanted me and determined probably my whole life (hobbywise at least). In the same time I really admire the modern studdless system of lego and it inevitably ended up in the demand in me to build a studless version of it. I've built it first in 2013, but in lack of sources (parts and talent) it wasn't really desirable, nor "smart". Since then I keep rebuilding it time to time and always ends up better and better. According this I wouldn't say this is the last or the best of it, but at the moment this is the stage of its evolution. This is where the name I gave came from. A few words about the details: Body: As you can see I did not use panels but kept the wireframe like appearance as it is one of the benchmark of the original set. Speaking of which I have to admit I did change the shape of the front a lot, even eliminated the concealed headlights due to the feeling that time has passed and it's not cool anymore. But to pay back what I took, I've designed a hood what follows the geometrical concept of the boot. If you listen closer, when the hood opens, the headlights are sliding backward. Rest of the body I think speaks for itself. Interior: Not much to say about it, seats, dash , keeping the colour scheme. Gearbox: Now that is a tricky one. That was the first problem I've been facing with as due to the size of the model I needed a narrow 4 speed gearbox with central differential, but I could not find a decent one anywhere. Crowkillers Paul had the 6 speeder, but it was too wide for my car and Sariel's 4 speeder has been designed for two wheel drive. So I've spent the next month and a half to develop a new one from scratch. Of course if there is a central diff it should be lockable, so it is. And it makes a very compact structure with the gearbox itself what comes handy in modular building. Edit: that was years back. From here it seems rediculously long time, but I let you decide. Here is a deidcated video about this gearbox: Steering: Unlike in the original, there is no ackermann geometry in my model, but please blame lego as it is the field where the part developement goes backward. Anyway the front steering is pretty simple, but for the rear I had to use a rod mechanism, since the compact gearbox left no room for an axle to go trough without compromising the aesthetics. It comes however with certain benefits, as with minor modification on the linking can change the steering lock of the rear wheels. I've applied the smalest as I've found it more realistic. The real life 4 wheel steered cars have only 3-5 degrees on the rear. Ground clearence adjustment: No witchcraft, a worm gear and an 8 tooth gear paired up on each wheel to lift and lower the shockers trough an axle. That's it. Friend of my accidentally discovered (by opening the boot) that this coupe can be converted easily to a hatchback... To be honest I did not consider this as a requirement when I was designing the model. I've made a couple of colour variations too as it appeared above. There is more hi-res pics on my brickshelf: http://www.brickshel...ry.cgi?f=562855 Building Insructions: https://bricksafe.com/files/Attika77/8880-evo-tribute-model/Attika_s_8880_EV_Tribute_by_1963maniac.pdf Feel free to share your opinion or ask about it Thank you for your attention.

  6. Hello Eurobricks Technic, This is my first forum post and I'm currently attempting a 1:10 supercar technic MOC. Its largely based off of the parts from the 24 Hours Race Car 42039 and the Formula Off-Roader 42037. So far, I've completed the main chassis, drivetrain, and a partial gearbox. I'm opting for a sequential 4-speed since I lack the parts for a more complicated transmission. Pics found here: https://bricksafe.com/pages/damiankaneiv/aventador-wip At the moment I have finished most of the chassis and underside and I am just starting to do bodywork for the car. At the moment I have limited parts due to the rest of my collection being in another state. Features include: 1 All-wheel drive 2 Partial sequential 4-speed Gearbox (inspired by Attika's design; gears are the same but altered housing)... still missing some parts 3 Independent suspension rear and front wheels (largely based off 24 Hour Race Car set) 4 HOG steering (planned) Planned features: 1 Scissor doors 2 Rear aero (deciding whether to invest in designing an active aero mechanism or static wing) I'm drawing a lot of inspiration from Stefan Birkefeld's Aventador design in terms of body work and scale. Let me know what you think and any suggestions or changes I should make.
  7. Hello everyone, I want to introduce the new project I have been working on for about the past month, a manual 1:10 scale McLaren MP4-12C Spider. I plan for the finished model to be white, but I do not have most of my collection with me in lockdown so there are a lot of working colors still. The features will be: -Independent suspension -Steering with HOG and working steering wheel -Fake V8 engine connected through rear wheels -Butterfly doors -Convertible roof -Raised and lowered rear wing I am attempting to make a semi-modular chassis. Removing 8 pins and 2 axles allows the cabin + roof mechanism to detach from the rolling chassis. Convertible roof: This is only the folding roof and does not include the deck lid yet. Roof mechanism Butterfly doors: The doors are operated through the same HOG as the steering by utilizing a distribution-type gearbox ahead of the front axle. Butterfly doors I would appreciate people's opinions on whether this gearbox function is worthwhile keeping, or should I simply run the doors to individual gears that will be located under the hood. Using the transmission gears does introduce significant backlash into the system, but I do like the simplicity of one external gear for all three functions, which was the original goal. Additionally do people have ideas on where the best place is to put the control gear for the roof? Somewhere on the rear of the car? If I remove the gearbox at the front I would probably be able to place that gear under the hood as well. I have also gone back and forth on the door design. I'm very happy with the function and range of motion, but the looks don't really match the real car yet so that might require some further work. Other comments and questions are always appreciated too! Thanks!
  8. Hello, For my latest project I'm building a supercar bit by bit, building the separate components first before assembling them. Starting with the Carbon Fiber Monocoque Tub: This one was for a great part inspired by the McLaren MP4-12C chassis, that one is said to weigh less than 80 kilograms (). (And guess what, mine weighs even less! ) This one wil most likely undergo many changes in order to fit with, yet to build, components. I'm considering using a carbon "cage" instead of a "tub" for my car though. But I won't know for sure until I start on the bodywork. Next is the Driveline: A Twin Turbo 3.8L V8 with 7-speed dual clutch gearbox and kinetic energy recovery system (KERS). I used some pictures from the Laferrari engine as reference. Without the intake manifold (those black plugs are where the rear half axles connect to the gearbox). I'm very satisfied with this component, It fits barely in the engine bay behind the tub though but I guess that's how it is supposed to be. If there was room to spare they would have just fitted in a bigger engine . Since I had these nice Ferrari stickers I might as well make this a Ferrari engine . That's it for now, perhaps I'll finish the next component tomorrow.
  9. I am very excited to present you my recent supercar MOC. It includes a PF (Power Function) version and a non-PF version. The PF version uses 2xLarge motor (propulsion) and 1 servo motor (steering), and it drives very smoothly. The non-PF version contains a 3-speed gearbox and a V4 fake engine, it also has a comprehensive steering system including HOG. More details can be found in my LEGO Ideas project https://ideas.lego.com/projects/2702df52-bcdc-467f-aab4-9d81000d7c14. I hope that I can have your support! Here are some pictures: Below are pictures about how the steering and drivetrain work in the non-PF version:
  10. 1925 Bugatti Type35-C MOC by Isaac Yaw Link to my youtube video: Description: Here are a few pictures of the newest MOC that I have made in about 2 months' time. I decided to turn back in time and bring back more antique builds from the past. One of my previous antique builds was the 1908 Ford Model T which is also posted on my Youtube channel. This newest build brings us back to one of the iconic Bugatti cars ever made, the Bugatti Type35-C. Features: -1:8 scale build -straight 8 engine -working steering system -every detail carefully replicated from the original car such as headlights, steering system, engine, exhaust, body shape, and etc.
  11. Hi, I've been working on this project in recent months, and I felt like sharing it at its current state. The majority of the design is based on my favourite car, the Porsche 911 964 RS 3.8. However, as I find it difficult to replicate the front of the 964, I've added a bit of the 911 997 GT3 RSR into the mix. At this point, the content of this post is only related to bodywork as I've always found it very difficult to develop. I've also worked on the chassis in parallel, which contains steering (maybe HoG should be added), suspension, a flat 6 engine, and a manual 4-speed gearbox with linkage. Maybe I will include the chassis in the next post. The front and rear axles are 25 and 27 studs wide respectively. Obviously the A-pillars are still missing, and some parts of the bodywork are still floating. I'm currently considering if the roof should be narrower and tilted slightly, but I guess it will be more clear when I start to design the A-pillars. I'd be very happy to hear some ideas for improvements, things that seem out of proportion and general feedback. Also, I installed BrickLink Studio to make the renders, but I found it difficult to make the 19L flex axles around the wheel arches look natural. Do any of you have some good advice on use of the flex tool in Studio? Best regards, Jens
  12. Hello everyone! First I have to say, that I'm new here and this is my first MOC ever, so it's not as good as I imagined it to be. It's a bit inspired by Crowkillers model 42083 B Model Bugatti Formula 1 Race Car, but most of it are my own ideas. Let's start with a photo! Functions: - Full independent double wishbone suspension - Steering - Fake V8 Engine & RWD - Openable engine hood All the parts are from Chiron 42083 set, as it is the only set I own. I am pretty proud of how it looks, apart from the front suspension. It doesn't look how I wanted it to be, but it's all because of lack of experience and time. There's no gearbox, because I have absolutely zero experience with that and I didn't want to waste a week on that. But maybe in next version... who knows :) I especially like the front wing, which in my opinion is an improvement over Crowkiller's version. Let me know guys what you think!

    Ginetta Akula

    Sometimes all the pieces seem to fall into place...I wouldn't know, this was another brain-bending build. The interior is mostly hollow for now, and I need to nudge some parts into place, but it's 99% done. I think only a few stickers would be needed; vents on the sloped nose, headlights, and the Ginetta logos. Ginetta Akula by Henchmen4Hire, on Flickr

    It's been a long time since I built anything, so please don't laugh too hard at this Here's what the car looks like: https://www.netcarshow.com/toyota/2018-gr_super_sport_concept/ I think I got close, these smooth bubbly cars are tough to recreate. https://flic.kr/s/aHsmMpW2Qe Toyota GR Super Sport Concept by Henchmen4Hire, on Flickr
  15. I am so glad to share with you my model after more than 1.5 years of development Lamborghini millennio terzo 2020 I would like to share with all of you my latest Greatest Model " Super Car Lamborghini Millennio terzo " that I tried to make a MOC out of it, I felt in love with the original model. (It is a concept car shall come in 2020) With LEGO I am able to shape the things I like to have my own model and that's why I came to this MOC. I believe that pictures are better than words , Also Video will make it much more better than any written description! The Model is 1:7 ratio. Your support and feedback is highly appreciated! Thanks.

  18. Crowkillers newest creation.... http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/440780
  19. Hi everyone, this time I want to show you another work-in-progress MOC, but this one is more recent. The reason why I want to do this is quite obvious - LEGO releases their Lambo this year, and I am also aware of at least one Aventador MOC coming soon. We should have even more Lamborghinis, they are awesome and I can't wait to see these models. My version is a dark blue + white model in 1:8 scale with some basic functions: Steering with working steering wheel. Openable scissors doors. 7+R gearbox. Remote control using a single Control+ hub: 2 coupled XL motors for drive; L motor for steering; L motor to change speeds. This time I decided to build everything independantly and simultaniously. It actually helped me to become much more productive. I'll start with the bodywork. It's not completed and is built around a very crude carcass. I'm trying to concentrate on the shape only. There will be enough space on the inside, I'm taking this into account while building. As you see, it's about 60% completed. Front section is not done yet, but the back looks almost completed and I really like how it turned out. Reminds me a "snowboard glasses" a little (don't know how to call them but I'm sure you get what I mean): Of course, these gaps will have black background in the future and I will add some filler to them as well. Rear wing also looks completed, it might be my favorite part of the build, here you can see it from another side: Now I want to show a door closely. I tried to replicate scissors mechanism as closely as I could. First version used shock absorber and was way too big. The proble is that it has to be very close to the front wheel, it's pretty hard to do. Second version required 3 small rubber bands to hold door's weight. On the following photos you will see a third version. This is how it looks being closed: This is the first step of opening when you open it just like a regular car's door: And this is how it looks when you open it in a different plane. It holds itself locked with two rubber bands that you can see at the bottom: Here's a shot from the front with both doors opened. You can see that the door on the right has "old" design, I improved on it already: Next two pictures are showing caliper on the front wheel. I wanted it to be angled just like on the real car so I had to be creative: Yes, this is a sausage piece. Calipers on the rear will also be angled, but with more conventional build. I don't have it right now so the picture will be in one of the following updates. Now car's internals. Here you can see a gearbox and rear wheels. 3 motors are clearly visible. 4th motor will be in front of the hub. The idea is that L motor will change speeds by rotating by 180 degrees, this can be done programmatically rather then mechanically. But it doesn't mean that the build is simple, because it's not. I used only one of those new orange "wave selector" gears, everything else is basically a huge improvement over the gearbox from my LaFerrari MOC, but it's 1.5 times bigger because of that "reverse" speed I added. It's actually pretty fun that I managed to use a 40 tooth gear in this model. I guess I could use 36 + 2x28, but I don't have 28 tooth gears yet: Here's a view of the bottom. A huge con of the model can be seen here - it has no central diff, but still I expect all 4 wheels to be driven. On the other hand, I left a lot of holes so I can see gears turning: This construction is not rigid enough in several points, I think I will have to completely rebuild it and ensure that it is strong enough. It's already pretty smooth and if motors won't be able to handle the weight then I can play with the gear ratios from motors - there are dedicated places in the gearbox for this exact purpose. I hope that it will become a good model and you'll like it. Thank you!
  20. Hello everyone! Today I'd like to show you the model that I've been working on for more than two years, it's my first MOC in this scale that is actually close to being finished. It was rebuild from scratch dozen times and still requires bodywork. The MOC is LaFerrari in 1:8 scale: Origially I had a lot of ideas and great ambitions, but over time I realized that I just don't have enough skill to make everything I wanted. So current version has following features: independent suspension; 2 L motors for driving; Servo motor for steering; working steering wheel; 8 speed sequential gearbox driven by M motor; spacious interior with low seats positioning; powering with standard LEGO PF. Proportions: width - 29 studs; height - 15-16 studs; length - about 70 studs, don't know yet. Originally I wanted to use bigger wheels but then I stopped on 68.8. The thing is that front section of the car are too low so there won't be any place for arches with bigger wheels. Battery box is located in front of the car because everything behind seats is one huge gearbox. It just lays on its own weight and will be covered on the top with something black. This way you won't see most of gray and light gray parts through the bonnet. Distance between seats is only 3 studs and every seat is 7 studs wide. There's no free space between them - only a few hidden cables there. This is how it looks without seats: Top and bottom views: The whole core of the car is basically done. It's pretty sturdy and doesn't bend when you hold it. In current state it has about 1600 pieces. The most challenging part of the build at this point is a gearbox. It had to be very compact because car is so low. In this LDD file you can investigate all gears: https://bricksafe.com/files/ibessonov/wip-moc-laferrari-technic-2018---1/8 speed gearbox.lxf Here are some renders of gearbox without stepper. Green axles are input from motors. There are 3 clutches here and they give 8 unique combinations of their engagement. L motors are slowed down significantly. This is because they are not powerful enough to make this car fast. Here's a stepper mechanism that I used to move all 3 clutches: Green things should be connected with white rubber bands, they hold axles in fixed 90-degrees positions. There's a strong resemblance with 42056 Porshe's gearbox here, I know it. That model helped a lot with the inspiration. My plan is to finish bodywork but it's the hardest thing for me. This is the exact reason why I'm creating this topic - to get help/critique while I'm finishing the model. LaFerrari has quite complex shape and I should have chosen something more simple for my first MOC. But I already spent way too much time so I have to finally finish it. Leave your thoughts here, I'm very curious of what you might say. Thank you!

  22. I loved the building process for the 3T Sports Sedan so much that I started another car. The 3T car needed a friend, and like every car maker who creates a competent sedan and follows it up with a CUV, I will too. Nope. I'm making a sports car. Again, this will be a mid-scale manual sports car with following features in order of priority: Suspension Rear wheel drive HOG steering Steering wheel Sequential 4 speed transmission (currently this one, thanks @Didumos69) Mid engined Flat 4 Discrete gear-change function Design language similar to the 3T Here is the first draft with a Porsche Cayman in the back of my mind, and you'll note a couple of problems already. The suspension is set, and will not change much. The hardpoints are also set, so the wheel base will not change, the rear overhang, height, and width will not change, and the seat and steering wheel placement will not change. Everything else may require some shifting, such as the length and front overhang, and internal placement of components. I do not like the HOG placement, and connecting the steering wheel is going to cause some problems at this point. So I could move the transmission back to the center of the car, and connect the steering wheel and place the HOD on the dash. I could also move the engine behind the rear axle which could lower it by one stud, and bring 6 pistons. But then there is no way this does not finish as a 911. What do you think. Move the engine to the back? Or keep the cabin of the car cluttered with steering and drivetrain parts? I do not have a solution for the changeover yet, so will be coming once I know where everything is placed.

    [MOC] Street racer

    Hello, let's start the race! It is my own hypercar concept with a minifigure. I reused some details of my earlier idea called "Hypercar concept 1", but I wanted to build this car even more dynamic. It is a studless model built from standard LEGO elements. The overall size is similar to the Speed Champions sets, but the wheels are from City sets as I wanted to keep the height to length ratio closer to the real sports cars. If you like this car, please share and support it on Lego Ideas: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/146d40fc-49de-4af5-8173-4c73892a003e Many thanks!

  24. Hello Speed Champions fans, my son asked me to build a white Audi R8. Both of us like the Speed Champions sets, therefore I choosen this scale. If you like it, you can support it on Lego Ideas: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/ead4242e-8bae-440d-930d-0c840d86ce5f It is a studless build from standard lego elements and modified City wheels are used instead of Speed Champions ones to keep the height to length ratio more realistic similarly to my earlier ideas. The front of this car is iconic and it was a real challenge to recreate it in this small size. I made lots of versions and I think the actual one with a tricky solution is the best. I tried more solutions to the black side blades too, the actual one was inspired by "LEGO Audi R8 instructions (MOC #96)" by "Jerry Builds Bricks" on Youtube, however I modifed it a bit as I wanted tilted blades similarly to the real ones. Only one sticker is used which is the Audi logo on the front as I'm generally not a fan of the parts with stickers, because of the lack of flexibility in using them with other builds. The set includes the minifigure shown on the main picture on the Lego Ideas. It comes form the set 75873 but with red helmet. I have added a rear wing to make the car more dynamic. It differs from the custom Audi wings, but I think it fits to the style of the car and to the side mirrors.
