Good Day! Since first seeing Technic figures in a catalog back in 2005, I really wondered whether there was a female version as well. Unfortunately , as we know , there are none. This problem is solve-able either modifying an original lego part (which will decrease the number of those in existance) or making your own. As a purist almost , I would choose the second version. I was surprised that no one has done this before (there is a broken link to a japanese website where someone done that in 2000's, but no pictures to be found anywhere), I took my free time to make a quick mock-up. First step was to get the torso and head into my 3D program - Autodesk 123D - from LDraw. That was done using LDView (place part in x=0, y=0, z=0 and export the file containing it through LDView as an .stl). Next was the chest, which was done using a few spheres, lofted surfaces and tubes (I tried not to exagerrate the size too much, just for it to be slightly notice-able). Luckily there were mannequin's side & top-down shots for inspiration. Next I exported this hair piece and scaled it up to approximate size & placement. Please note that I'm a noob at 3D modelling, and my "art side" is non-existent (for me it would be easier to draw a mechanical piece as a blueprint rather than a human being), so I would love to hear any suggestions and ideas. I do eventually plan to upload the finished model to Shapeways, but I can send it via e-mail. Question: Do you think the "reduced"? waist (as the one printed on minifigs) is necessary? Images:
As a kid I always wanted to build a LEGO rollercoaster, but I never had enough LEGO to try building one... until now. After winning a large LEGO set in the battle bot contest last year I decided that I now finally had enough LEGO to try building a rollercoaster, so I did! I always try, but it's quite hard to be original since there's so many creative builders out there. But when I did some research and I found that no one had ever posted pictures or videos of a true rollercoaster scaled to accommodate technic figures I knew I found my challenge! The main challenges of building one was the fact that there's no tracks made by LEGO to work on this scale. I experimented with making tracks with various parts, but making curves never really worked like I wanted it to, and even a small radius turn took way to many parts. And then it hit me... I don't NEED curved tracks! all I need is ways to make the cart change direction! After that realization my brain exploded with fun and creative ways to do just that. Not only does it take less parts because you can stay very compact, it's technically way more interesting(to build), and more fun to watch For those interested I made a separate video about the techniques I used to make everything work. This was my biggest MOC ever, and it took me extra long because I Had a "dark age" in the middel of the build, but in the end I'm extremely happy with the end result. Let me know what you guys think!
I am proud to present my newest MOC, a medium sized remote control drift car that I call the 'Red Devil' Features: Rear wheel drive via fast output of one buggy motor, steering via servo, powered by one 10 volt battery, and for the first time, a complete body using flex axles, and for a first time, it looks fantastic! Originally a chassis similar to rm8's Black Mamba with a RWD/4WD selector, it turned into something completely different, something I can call my own Pictures: ^taken before I decided to add a roof ^comfortable seat made from rubber pieces! ^ a nylon washer keeps the differential from slipping ^these wheels have a perfect rubber compound, somewhere between hard rubber and foam, which offer grip when needed but perfect for holding drifts I got them and the figure when buying the 8840 Rally Shock n' Roll Racer. ^An action shot Video coming soon hopefully, ENJOY!
