  1. Hi everyone! I have a big question. from the 26th of february to the 6th of march we will do our next "phaenoBRICKS" exhibition. We, means the "Steineland Harz + Heide" RLUG which is a part of the "Stein Hanse", a big LUG in the Northern Germany. The phaeno (www.phaeno.de) is a very famous science-museum and we are glad und proud to have the possibility to do our LEGO(R)-exhibition in it again. The last one was in the year 2020, one week before the great pandemic had forced us to stop holding exhibitions. It was a great success, over 13K people visited the phaenoBRICKs on it´s playtime. Now I started planing for 2022 and here is the reason I came to you. The phaeno is a museum to do experiments, learn physics, mechanics, chemistry .. and many more. The perfect area to present a nice GBC-project. The last time we only had a small circle with only about 20 GBC-elements. This time I hope to make it larger und bigger. It fits perfect to the phaneo, how you can imagine. I hope .. no it will be great, if it were possible to find and build a community here in this forum that would have the time and desire to carry out this project together with us. I am sure, the phaeno will support you and us, with paying the hotel and getting here for example. The details we can clear up personally later. At first I would be happy to hear from you, we all are very dear and nice AFOLs with familiar atmosphere. We always try to accomodate international guests, last year from France and Austria, next year from Denmark and France again. It would be nice to create a recurring GBC-attraction at the phaenoBRICKS.

  2. With my Ripsaw Tank MOC essentially done by now (just waiting for some final pieces to arrive) and my PAB order for my New Flyer XD60 articulated bus model still yet to arrive (with more pieces coming for that), I've decided to start another MOC in the meantime. This will be my second model combining Control+ and Robot Inventor after my Heavy Duty Skid-steer Loader. It will have two identical axles, each with a steering motor (medium angular motor) to control steering, and thanks to their absolute positioning feature I don't think I'll have to calibrate it every time, like on e.g. the 42099 set. I was originally planning to use Control+ L motors for the steering, and have this be a Control+ MOC, but found the medium angular motor to fit better with the absolute positioning being another plus. I plan on creating a control profile in the Mindstorms app with different sliders for normal, crab, and 4-wheel steering modes. The drivetrain consists of heavy-duty differentials and planetary hubs, so this eliminates the need for significant gearing down inside the chassis. For propulsion, I plan to use 2 Control+ XL motors, with a fake engine driven by a separate motor. This way, the fake engine can run at all times and there will be less friction in the drivetrain. I anticipate building the chassis to be pretty straightforward, as the entire chassis is essentially a mirror image with two identical axles. As for the bodywork, I'm leaning towards a red car-like body. If so, I will probably name this MOC "Red Beryl C", where "C" is for Crawler. It would be the third model in my Red Beryl series, after my Red Beryl GT of 2018 and Red Beryl X of 2019. Let me know what you think, and any suggestions you may have. Photos: The front axle, with planetary hubs, long shock absorbers, and a medium angular motor for steering: The front axle, with the wheels attached. Note that this is the underside, with the heavy-duty differential visible:
  3. Hello guys, few days ago i finished and released my latest MOC. And here i want to share it with you and it a bit more technical aspect of it. if you are interested. (My english may have few errors) Main one is the tractor, as you can see its Case QuadTrac 620 articulated tractor, aimed for 1:17 to match with trucks and other farm machinery, mainly eric´s if there is collector who appreciate that. but this scale is also big enought to pack everything needed and look good, and small enough for not needing large uniform boring surfaces. On the outside it may look like pure system thing, but on the inside its packs 6 PF motors. two of which are L motors for drive, 3x M motors, two for sariel.pl pneu/switch combo (two independend systems) and third is in the rear of the body for PTO output. and last is standard servo which uses opposide steering rack system for quick response in oposite of standard linear acctuators, this system is in my opinion even more compact, reliable and more enjoyable to play with. However if exposed to very large resistance it may throw timing off. (i dont recomend steering while stationary on carpet or floor). Secondary features are : Connected steering wheel to the servo system while the cabin itself has suspension. Driver seat is rotatable to the right side as the original. left staircase swings away from the path of tracks while being steered to the left. and full suspension on all 4 tracks and also rotating rear section for compenstate for uneaven surfaces. Everything is powered by 2x buwizz 2.0 bricks. It may seems like an overkill for instructions but i chose to not make too much compromises. i wante model that can do it all, exept it cant lift things because its lack of three point hitch. About the trailer. Its mostly System bricks and creator style creation with minimum of technic features so i will not talk much about it, but it has three functions. first is PTO input which powers conveyor on the floor of the bin and it also diverts into auger conveyor to spin worm gear at the end to look like there is actual function to it. However it cant move real stuff. Second function is pneumatic support leg at the bottom, so after attaching it to the tractor with pin and connecting all the hoses. you can remotely operate entire trailer. Third feature is extending auger conveyor to simulate real operation of this kind of machine. I am aware of few off-scale bug on this model. main one is taller track system due to including suspension. and shorter trailer bin. If you are interested in instructions they are on my RB profile: https://rebrickable.com/users/Klein.Creations/mocs/ There is one independent video review and one video of my own. i hope you will appriciate and enjoy both of them.
  4. Hey guys, here is a long-anticipated project of mine that I'm finally starting. It is a model of NJ Transit's 2020 New Flyer XD60 articulated bus. My model will be fully motorized, with remote-controlled drive, steering, and opening doors. It'll be either controlled by the PF IR system or by SBrick. The model will be propelled by a PF XL motor, which is already in place. The power source is a PF 8878 battery sitting in the very rear of the chassis. So far I have the rear portion of the chassis built - just missing most of the seats. I've already been building the model digitally on Stud.io for about a month, mostly working on the chassis, so this part should be done relatively soon. However, this is not taking into consideration any potential issues that may arise as I build the chassis in real life. I also have prototypes for the doors' and bellows' mechanisms ready (not pictured), and they seem to work pretty well. So overall, it'll just be a matter of putting these mechanisms together into a coherent chassis. Aesthetics wise, my model will mostly be about the outside appearance, which means I'll focus much more on the bodywork than the interior details-wise. However, the seating layout will still be identical to the original bus, with a total of 59 seats. This is definitely a project I'm really looking forward to. It'll be the first time I model a particular real-life vehicle. I'm a huge fan of NJ Transit's buses and buses in general, and these artics IMO are some of the best buses they've ordered in recent years. And because I'm doing a digital build while simultaneously building in real life, I plan on publishing instructions for this MOC when it's finished. Photo:
  5. Hello, here is a new MOC - a Forklift. It is an alternate build of the 8460 - Pneumatic Crane Truck / Mobile Crane. It is kept in the typical studful technic building style, like the 8460 - crane. Its features are: Fork moving up and down Tilting of the fork (pneumatic) I'm very new here, please ask me questions and give me suggestions how to improve my posts, thank you! Here is a video: And some more photos: Even more photos! Instructions! Thank you for reading! I hope you like it.
  6. Good day, everyone! This project has started as an idea of creating better a bodywork for 42099, but after some time in development it turned into undependent rc modification of Defender 42110. I took inspiration from Bowler WildCat and Bowler Nemesis which are extreme buggy-like offroaders based on Land Rover cars. So I pondered the question, What if... new Defender would be made into Bowler? In result - original defender has become lower, has got lower roof profile, bigger tires, front and rear pushbars, snorkel pipe, stronger footrests, two sets of additional lights and fog lights, antennas, front and rear mudguards, some chains ('cause chains are cool!). Engine was swapped from 6-inline to V8-supercharged! (After I made this model in spring, LR has announced that they will actually make a V8 Defender. Sadly, not supercharged :) Engine and cooling fan are connected to the front axle via chain links. (Yes, chains ARE cool. I had to buy whole Ducati set for this) And the most important - Control+ components. As this Bow-fender shares control profile with 42099, set of electrics is the same. One XL+ for each axle One L+ for steering SmartHub for SmartThings And then I found out that I am... well... not really good in making offroad chassis. At least it was my first try. So I tuned it as much as possible and made a note for future to learn more about lego offroading. (I think, I'll start with Zetros). Video of how this Bow-fender drives on everything it can is of course here: Watch till the very end! And Thanks for watching. Subscribe. P.S. This cat was walking nearby, while I was making video, so I asked him to participate. So there is A cat in the video now, instead of THE Cat - erpillar :)

  8. Audi R8 Spyder Specifications Length/width/height: 71s / 29s / 18s (57/25/25 cm) Scale: 1:8 Weight: 2293g Parts: 2701 Features Front and rear independent suspension 4-speed sequential gearbox Working V10 engine RWD Steered wheels by HOG Working steering wheel Convertible roof Openable doors, hood and engine bay A suitcase in the trunk Recently, a lot of alternative models have been created, so I decided to make mine :) I bought the 42083 in last year. I am big fan of automotive and supercars, so for me it was obligatory. After building the main model, I thouht that it would be cool to build something else. I set myself few goals: use only the parts from the set, improve the suspension and transmission (in Chiron it doesn't work perfect), reproduce reasonably realistic look and make a working convertible roof. At the beginning, I was building the Lamborghini Huracan. I built the chassis and the rear part of bodywork, but when I started building the front it was really hard to model it. In the Huracan the front nose goes really low, with a large angle from the bonnet. With using Chiron's mudguards there was a huge hole between them and the nose. It wasn't looking good, so I decided to make a different model. I haven't had to think long. Lamborghini Huracan and Audi R8 are quite similar. They belong the same group, both have V10 engine and similar dimensions. I started the building of Audi this time from the front, it looked quite good, so I was continuing the building of Audi R8. Here are some WIP photos. The car has steered front axle, by using the HOG with working steering wheel. There is no AWD, so the steering radius is quite good. In the front and in the rear there is independent suspension, in both based on liftarms 1x7. This is due the fact that with longer wishbones there is bigger leverage and the suspension is stiffer. For this reason too, there is no Quattro transmission, short wishbones used in Chiron create too little leverage, and trying to extend them ends up with a colission of the inside part of the wheel with the wishbone. Under the fake V10 there is a gearbox with "only" four gears. This is due to use the driving rings as a exauhst tips and maximum lowering of the V10 to place above it the roof. In my opinion more gears doesn't make sense, beacuse in 8-speed gearbox you can't see the difference in rpm of the pistons between next gears. The gears are changed sequentialy by a lever in the middle tunnel. In the mechanism there is a lock to prevent shifting from 1st to 4th gear and vice versa. The system of the gear change works on similar principle as in other MOCs of supercars - Charbel's McLaren 720s or T-Lego's Lamborghini Centenario. I think that this placing of the lever is better to use than the paddle shifters, esspecially that there is no roof. I think that the best feature is the convertible roof. Designing appropiate geometry of movement of the roof and engine cover was quite a big challange. I started the work from designing the movement of the roof itself, which had to avoid the seats. The next problem was the engine cover, which firstly had to move while opening the roof, and secondly I wanted to make it openable to show the engine bay. At the end I had to synchronize both movements so that the both elements do not block each other. The roof and the engine cover slide out with using some links, built from liftarms and connectors. The whole convertible roof mechanism took me above two weeks. While building it was important to me to replicate the details well. In the interior there are pedals, air-conditioning and at the driver's side a wall in the middle tunnel. In the real Audi R8 Spyder you can not look inside the engine bay, there is only a little cover at the end of the car, where are the basic fluids. However, I made openable rear cover to show the fake V10. I tried at my best to build the engine bay, and under the rear cover there is even an oil plug :) Chiron comparison. Thank you very much to Audi Poznań Franowo ASO for the interest and allowing me to take few photos with the real Audi R8. I am happy with this model. Despite limited amounts of parts the car is not bad. I plan to make a RC version in one color. Don't forget to watch the video! The Gallery Rebrickable

  10. Simple model of a ripsaw controlled by BuWizz. Features drive with 2 RC motors, suspension, and a dual-missile turret that can be elevated and lowered. Functions/features: Drive (2x RC motors, 1 per track) Suspension Dual-missile turret Turret elevation It's been several months without publishing any new MOCs, and this is largely due to me working on my huge New Flyer XD60 articulated bus model. I placed two major orders of pieces directly from LEGO back in August, and as their parts take several weeks to ship I decided to work on a smaller project in the meantime. Since my Azure Racer XL I wanted to create another MOC using RC motors and BuWizz, so I decided to go with a tracked vehicle this time. However, I did not want it to be just another boring tracked vehicle with drive only (like my Lime Tracker from 2017), and I realized a ripsaw would be just big enough to house a turret that can be elevated and lowered. The building process actually started out with the body instead of the tracks. The model has a rather modular build, with individual parts (tracks, chassis, body) built separately and joined together. The turret mechanism was built in the rear of the body, and it is elevated by two small LAs. To reduce complexity, the turret motor is attached directly to the turret and moves with it when elevating. This however required more space in the chassis to allow it room to move. Both the turret elevation and missile firing are driven by PF M motors, and the turret consists of the new spring-loaded turret in a brick housing from the 51515 set. The missile firing motor has a 2L liftarm attached to it that hits the release button on the left/right missiles depending on the direction it turns. Overall, both turret functions worked well. As for the tracks, they have a suspension system with bogies attached to arms with shock absorbers. This part was a challenge, as the tracks needed to sit high but also be reinforced enough to resist the forces from turning. After several attempts with the tracks falling off, I was able to create a setup with the optimal tension in the tracks to prevent them from falling off during serious driving but also not too tight as to add excessive friction. I was initially worried that driving the tracks straight from the RC motors' outer outputs wouldn't be enough torque, but it looks like the finished model performed fine. In the end, the model performed well other than being a little bit top-heavy, but I feel like I could've modeled the shape better to make it resemble a real ripsaw more. I tried to be loose with the design, using curved panels over flat panels and stacked liftarms wherever possible, but still I feel like it can be improved. And as for the color, I think DBG would work best for a ripsaw like this (a Google search for "ripsaw" would show several dark gray ripsaws), but given all the pieces I'm ordering for my New Flyer XD60 model I didn't want to spend anymore on pieces for a side project, so I went with white for the model.

  11. Hi all! It's been a while since I've posted anything here. But here you go, my little side project: Vintage Tractor Functions: Steering via steering wheel Fake L3 piston engine driven by the rear wheels via differential Moving valves synced to the pistons (more or less) Simple 2-speed gearbox controlled by a lever Rear Power-Take-Off controlled by a lever The main feature of the build are the moving intake and exhaust valves synced to the piston movements. They are driven by two cams phased 180 deg from each other. The biggest challenged was to figure out the way to move the valves for the central cylinder in the opposite way. The end solution was to link it to the opposite shaft using a 5M lift arm. See it in action in the video below. Video: The model is different from how I usually build. Since my last post more than 5 years ago I've been working on two projects, mostly in series (not in parallel). Both of them are very complex (to my taste) and move at a very slow pace inspite of huge amount of time invested in it. I am a perfectionist and while I am trying to restrict that side of me in the daily life, Lego is a way to let it go. So for two "real" projects I optimize every single module of a MOC dozens and dozens of time. And it takes forever to finish anything. That MOC here is my brake from it. It's a study into what I can get if I don't optimize too much. The idea was to accept the first solution which works. The finished result as you can see is not polished and rough around the edges. But it works. And it was completed in a fraction of a time needed for my serious MOC of mine. And I am happy with it. As for some other people, the inspiration came from the beautiful 4000025. At about the same time I saw an Allis Chalmer Model B displayed as a decoration at my local grocery store. And I felt in love with that thing. It's one of the most elegant piston-driven vehicles I saw IRL. Four cylinders, gearbox, torque tube, differential, and portal axles. What else do you need? So I've settled to re-create it in Technic with the following objectives: Do it quickly; Try to accept the first solution which works Function-over-looks Make it true Technic without much system parts Try to implement all the main functions in a small scale Make everything work reliably So in the end I wasn't able to build the Model B. It ended up as a generic tractor looking nothing like my inspiration. Which is fine, since function-over-looks was one of the objectives. With the release of this part I am now eager to build a true replica of the Model B. But, that a next step... I send my greetings to the talented builders who posted some truly incredible vintage tractors here recently: 4000025-Inspired Ferguson TE20 Tractor by @Brickend Vintage Tractor by @MangaNOID Old Little Tractor Lanz Bulldog by @Jundis To finish it off here are some additional photos. I am lucky to live in Southern Ontario, where farms are breathtakingly beautiful Criticism is welcomed! And stay tuned for a proper MOC. Hopefully won't be long. It is sitting on the shelf waiting for the video and some additional photos.
  12. Hi, I have designed a series of tracked vehicle using either 4 or 6 L or XL motors with two buwizz. And the problem i keep having is that after about 30 seconds to a minute the power to one side is shut off. If i then leave it to rest for a minute it will go again, but it will cut out sooner after that. The components to not heat up noticeably. I have experimented with different sizes and weights, and the problem is more noticable at higher speeds and weight. but weirdly enough it runs fine before the "limit" kicks in. I have cross connected the motors so it is not one buwizz that is at fault. Is there some sort of power limit i am reaching? Thanks in advance.
  13. Hello and thank you for checking out my MOC, much appreciated. I call it "Red Arrow" due to its front design and color. This was one of the rare occasions in which i started building without knowing what i wanted to make. I was just doing experiments, trying developing a front section with steering and independent suspension using only common liftarms, connectors, axles and pins. After all, not everyone has those fancy, specific pieces for that purpose, so, yeah, why not?... I was indeed able to create it and that was the starting point, seemed appropriate for an off roader, so i kept going in that direction; only later on when i already had the chassis assembled, did i decided it was going to be an SUV. Now let's talk about the vehicle itself. It is 35 studs long, 20 studs wide, and 14 studs tall, somewhat small. At this scale, the smaller off road tires looked better, so i went with those. Being an SUV, it needed to have good ground clearance and it should at least be RWD, both requirements were met. I don't usually include a differential on off road RC vehicles due to the high probability of them becoming stuck, but i added one on this MOC, it just seemed right, and the front suspension (without shock absorbers) is so responsive it will help the SUV maintain ground contact for sure. One L-motor is used to drive the rear wheels, the ratio between the motor and the wheels is 1.167:1, so it is slightly biased towards torque. Another L-motor is controlling the steering, which returns to center automatically by using a rubber band driven mechanism. The IR receiver is occupying the driver's cabin and the standard Power Functions battery pack is hidden inside the large trunk. To turn the SUV on or off, you just need to push or pull the ladder in the back respectively. For me, the most interesting aspect about this MOC is definitively the steering with a decent turn radius and the independent suspension with long travel capabilities. They work flawlessly, so well i actually had to limit both the suspension travel and steering turning radius for this MOC to function properly. The building instructions point out the limiters, so you can choose not to include them if using this for your own MOCs. As usual, parts list and building instructions are available at rebrickable.
  14. Hey everyone! Welcome to my latest LEGO Ideas project - a kinetic sculpture of an Orrery where the earth goes round the sun and the moon round the earth. Go support it here: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/bc099c6a-9cf0-427b-a35e-3aff4599b150 Build This build consists of the Sun, the Earth and the Moon, built on a vintage/antique style base. The Moon revolves around the Earth while the earth revolves around the Sun. The mechanics are hidden nicely inside the base. I have put a lot of effort into making the model as sturdy as I can, and the motion as smooth as possible. The model was built to look as nice as possible, with a detailed, brick-built version of the Earth. Dimensions of the build: 35x18.5x28 (LxBxHcm) Pieces This model has 1200 LEGO Bricks (give or take a few). I built the model digitally to check! Aim My aim with this model was not to make a 100% accurate scientific model of an orrery, but rather to make something that looked great on display, while still being functional. I also wanted to make the design as compact so as to keep it affordable. Another important aspect of this project was the varied build experience - a combination of Technic and System bricks to create an interesting and fun build. This model would also have a very wide appeal - from space and astronomy fans to technic fans, as well as people who like collecting models for display. Hope you like this project! Don't forget to support and share! :D
  15. Hi guys Recently, I finished another model. It is a tractor unit inspired by Scania S-Series trucks. It has 6x4 drive and suspended axles. The front axle is suspended with normal LEGO hard shock absorbers. The rear axles have rubber suspension which imitates air-suspension as used in real trucks. The suspension at the rear axles is a bit hard but chassis is in return flat. The fifth wheel as a self-locking mechanism so that you can couple a trailer easily. To open the fifth wheel a small linear actuator is used. For steering a PU L motor sits directly on the front axle. For propulsion I used two PU XL motors. But check the pictures and video: Instruction at Rebrickable: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-86508/FT-creations/6x4-tractor-unit-inspired-by-scania/#details
  16. Hello guys. I want to present you my first MOC. I like Lego, I like American trucks, I decided to combine these two hobbies. I was inspired by the legendary Peterbilt 379. Features: opening engine hood opening doors HOG steering with working steering wheel in the cabin V8 fake engine with moving pistons It took me 3 months to work on the model. I redid many of the details several times and it was a very valuable experience. I am happy with the result. Instruction at Rebrickable:https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-86136/efgen86/classic-us-truck/#details P.S. I do not speak English. I use translator.
  17. Hi all, I'm happy to present my newest MOC, a propeller plane with realistic controls. This is the list of functions: Working rudder Working ailerons Working elevator Openable canopy Freely spinning propeller Steering rear wheel It is a medium sized build at 707 parts. The dimensions are as follows: length: 30 cm / 11" width: 33 cm / 13" height: 10 cm / 4" The working controls are the main part of the plane. This is an overview of the mechanisms: Propeller plane controls by Jerry LEGO Creations, on Flickr The yellow parts control the elevator, the yellow the ailerons and the magenta parts are for the rudder. The way the ailerons and elevator work are not too complex. By moving the yoke forwards and backwards, the rearmost connector also moves. This connector is connected to the elevator. The ailerons are connected to the yoke via a set of gears. The most interesting part of these 2 mechanisms, is the CV joint. This joint allows the axle to move in and out easily, while transferring the rotation to the gears. The way the rudder works is a bit more complex. Here is a render showing the different parts of that mechanism: details pedals by Jerry LEGO Creations, on Flickr The yellow parts are the pedals. When you push a pedal forwards, it also pushes a purple liftarm forwards. To this liftarm a rubber band is attached at the bushes. The rubber band makes the rudder return to centre. The purple liftarm is blocked from moving backwards (towards the seat) by the dark green parts. This is done to make sure that both rubber bands don't cancel each other out. The movement from the pedals is transferred to the light blue liftarms. These are in turn attached to the lime parts. The lime 3L liftarm rotates about the pin in the middle. It is also the link between both pedals. The lime green thin liftarms are connected to an axle which finally rotates the rudder. Renders showing the mechanisms in action can be seen at 1:19 in the video. If you are interested in building it for yourself, here you can find free instructions: ReBrickable It is also on Lego Ideas, any support will be highly appreciated: Lego Ideas Finally, here are some more images showing the plane: Propeller plane rear side 2 by Jerry LEGO Creations, on Flickr Propeller plane front 2 by Jerry LEGO Creations, on Flickr Propeller plane top by Jerry LEGO Creations, on Flickr Propeller plane front by Jerry LEGO Creations, on Flickr
  18. This is an alternative build (C-model) inspired by the Peacemaker from Mad Max's Fury Road (2015 film) The instructions are 2 PDF files. The first, includes the steps to build the chassis (this is a replica of the car tank built and used for the movie) The second PDF includes the instructions on how to complete the model by building the bodywork. I included a mount base for display. Model is functional with or without the bodywork. I made an effort to make as realistic as possible and therefore the model is manual. i will upload versions of this using Power Functions and Control +, But I am working on other models for now. Instructions available at Rebrickable: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-67431/A_Great_Builder/peacemaker-42069-c-model/#details Functions are: Full tracked independent suspension Central V8 engine Double differential steering "Hand of God" Turret (turns with engine's torque) Manual axle (to manually add torque to the system) Mount display Detachable bodywork PD. I made a YouTube video but it was one of my first videos ever and it's not as dynamic as my most recent video. Eventually I will create a shorter video once I have the motorized versions.
  19. What, in your opinion, is the most infuriating detail on any specific Technic set? This could be a grille, or the orientation of a wheel/s, or any other little thing of note, such as a mechanical axis point. Also, it doesn't have to be a bad or a good set, this is focusing solely on the specific detail of the model.
  20. Hi, I designed a pretty compact inline 3 pneumatic engine: If someone‘s interested, I‘ll consider making instructions. Pascal Here are some pictures: https://share.icloud.com/photos/0nS1bu-NzDFND9IuROoaiSaQw https://bricksafe.com/pages/Paacsl/compact-inline-3-lpe

  22. 01 by RJ BrickBuilds, on Flickr Hello, Bozos! You can support Johnny 5 on Lego Ideas to turn him into an Official Johnny 5 Lego Set here: Johnny 5 on Lego Ideas Who is Johnny 5? Those who don’t know him, Johnny 5, also known as “S-A-I-N-T Prototype Number 5” or Number 5 for short, is a very lively and inquisitive military robot prototype who’s perpetually hungry for more “input”. He is the star of the 1980’s movies Short Circuit and Short Circuit 2 and a TV special called Hot Cars. He became sentient when he was luckily struck by lightning during a combat demonstration. Although he is designed to serve the military as a robot prototype, he has an adorable child-like behaviour and has a great respect for life. He is a peace-loving robot and refuses to use his military capabilities to harm others. Despite being very intelligent and inventive, his naivety and trusting nature has been taken advantaged of on several occasions. Design This model is fully motorised using Powered Up motors and hub and controlled through a mobile device using the Powered UP App. It uses Technic parts to ensure stability of the structure, and System parts to capture the look and form of Johnny 5. The following are the playable features of the model: Movement – This model can move around on tank tracks and uses skid steer to change directions. Body – Johnny 5’s body can tilt using a Powered Up L motor and controlled using a mobile. Arms – Arms can be raised and lowered individually using the Powered Up App. The fingers can be adjusted manually as well as the elbows. Head – The head can be tilted and turned using the Powered Up App. Eyebrows – Eyebrows can be manually adjusted to suit the desired facial expression. Laser – The laser at the back can be raised and lowered using the Powered Up App. Watch the YouTube video here to illustrate these functions better: Johnny 5 on Youtube Total Pieces: 2,711 Dimensions: Studs: W 68.4 x L 36.1 x H 73.5 Inch: W 21.5 x L 11.4 x H 23.2 cm: W 54.7 x L 28.9 x H 58.8 Weight: 99.8 ounces or 2.83 kg Johnny 5 MOC Pictures: 02 by RJ BrickBuilds, on Flickr 03 by RJ BrickBuilds, on Flickr 06 by RJ BrickBuilds, on Flickr 05 by RJ BrickBuilds, on Flickr 04 by RJ BrickBuilds, on Flickr 07 by RJ BrickBuilds, on Flickr 08 by RJ BrickBuilds, on Flickr 09 by RJ BrickBuilds, on Flickr 10 by RJ BrickBuilds, on Flickr
  23. Hi guys! At least I has finished my next MOC and want to introduced the finished model to all of you! Welcome my International Lonestar truck! It's dimensions are: - Lengh: 101 stud or 80 cm - Width: 31 studs or 25 cm without mirrors - High: 37 studs or 30 cm excluding antennas and exhaust pipes. It consists of more than 5000 Lego parts, including 9 motors. It has: - Great Charbel's 8 speed gearbox, modified by me to the 16 speed one by adding high/low gear to the main output. It has a special shifter. It's all RC. - Independant powerfull pneumatic brakes on each wheel. Inspired by Sheepo's Peterbilt. - Pneumatically controlled fifth wheel. - Independant suspencion on front and dependant one on the rear axles. - Suspended driver's and passenger's seats, doors with locks and shock absorbers. - Detalized interior. - Inline 6 cylinder engine like the real truck. Power functions is described at the picture below, I think this is more interesting than just to read. Also I include pneumatics sheme. Enjoy the pictures please, I hope some video will apear nowadays. Unfortunately, rear differentials can't cope with such a huge torgue and truck cant drive fast on the floor, sorry. Please visit my Bricksafe page for more photo. Building instructions are available here: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-9788/OleJka/international-lonestar-truck/#comments VIDEO AVAILABLE NOW!!
  24. Tractor 851 was the first set I had when I was 8 or 9. I wanted to make a new version but the set was already chosen by BrickBuildingFox for the contest. No matter ! So I will show you a studless version of the 2nd set I received few times after 851: the bulldozer 856. 856-01-original by avantime78, sur Flickr I will build it at he same scale, and try to respect as well as possible the color scheme. First step was to find the bag containing the parts, wash them, and after replace the parts (bushes, connectors 3651), brocken by the age, I built this old 856... Hopefully the gears were OK ! After I started by the bucket. I wanted it to be build with parts and not an all in one like black buckets. So here it is, the size matter the original version, 13 studs length and a flex on the Botton to close the hole. 856-02-benne by avantime78, sur Flickr 856-03-benne by avantime78, sur Flickr Now it's time to imagine and built the bull itself !
  25. This great ball contraption uses a series of gears and pins to grab the balls and lift them. The mechanism is quite reliable, especially for a module that I designed. Would like to have made it run a bit faster as it does not quite run at 1bps, but it should be able to run at that speed if it is run on 9v. (it was only running at 7.2v in the video as the batteries are rechargeable) Photos on Flickr.
