  1. About two black ages ago I came up with a mechanism to add steering to very small models, and I worked on two models based on it. I have never been able to finish them to my satisfaction, and I'm realizing the current black age I'm in will probably last until retirement, or at least until I get a bigger living space, so I'm posting what I have now. I should probably have posted about the mechanisms years ago, but I wanted to have some neat models to show off with it too so I never did. Last time I searched around the web for anyone else who had shown the mechanism off I didn't find anything, so I don't think it's a well known thing. Here's an album with pictures it this post: Overview of the two mechanisms. Vertical and horizontal variants of the small mechanism on the left and bigger one on the right: Small mechanism with vertical axle: Same mechanism with horizontal axle: Here's the bigger mechanism with vertical axle: Here's a WIP wheeled excavator based on the smaller mechanism. The bottom right picture is another control scheme I was exploring. I'm mostly satisfied with the model, it's only the arm and bucket I don't like. Here's a bigger WIP model. This one uses very tightly packed pneumatics. It's missing the cab and arm, but I'm otherwise pretty happy with what I've got. I was never satisfied with the arms I managed to build. They were either too bulky or too fragile. This model feels very nice to roll around on the desk, it has some a weight and grounding that the smaller one lacks, and the turning is pretty satisfying too, even though it can't exactly turn on a dime. Lastly, here's a half scale model of the 8049. Lacking fenders, seat, lights and the trailer. I would like to get the two excavators finished one day so I can have them hanging out under my monitor, but my hobbies have shifted to electronics and plants, and I'm lacking in desk space anyway. Maybe one day though :-) Hopefully these mechanisms can help you in your builds! As a bonus, here's my collection of all technic excavators, except for the Liebherr, which I'm hoping to find used for cheap. Note the blue excavator from the 8888 idea book! If imgur decides to stop hosting the pictures, contact me on BL where I have the same username and I'll get them hosted somewhere else.

    [MOC] Tiny Turbos, anyone?

    Hello folks! Tiny Turbos - does anyone remember this somewhat hit-and-miss Racers theme? Despite its discontinuation, moderately small interest in the 4-wide scale still persists on Flickr and MOCpages, and new pieces released are fueling fresh ideas among builders, myself included. One may find building a tiny car a very fun and rewarding experience - the key point to keep in mind is avoiding the overly dull and generic results, which sadly happens on many an occasion. Now, I am not too familiar with MOCpages, but this Flickr pool is a great place to start if you're looking for inspiration. Normally I wouldn't bother with creating a separate topic for such a car myself, instead turning to Flickr, but this one is somewhat special. Since I was building for a contest, I went all-out on it, made a bunch of renders and maximised the capabilities of virtual MOCing. The car is made up using exactly 60 pieces, and as far as I can tell should be adequately sturdy IRL. I used Metallic Sand Purple, which is a beautiful official colour that can be found (by legal means) within the depths of LDD. Rendered using Bluerender. Under-the-hood trickery included! Some obligatory animation, for there is no better way to showcase a car. A couple more "panoramic" images. Hope you enjoyed your stay and feel free to join in the fun! .)

    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: and my YouTube Channel (JamesArts Bricks UK):
  6. Taking a little break from building a minifigure scale AT-AT and going in the opposite direction in scale. Not sure what to call this scale, so I call it Tiny AT-AT. The AT-AT measures 3 inches (7.5 cm) tall. Feel free to build your own, follow this link to my web site for the instructions, LDD file and the Rebrickable page:
  7. Hey everyone--- A look through my other submissions will reveal that I love cranes. Incredible machines… functional, but, at least in my opinion, they can be aesthetic also. Perhaps not in beauty, but in almost a complex, physical, Rube-Goldberg type of way. Last year I completed a large crane, a scaled copy of the Liebherr 1750. This time around I wanted to something bigger, yet smaller at the same time. Encouraged by our "tiny mocs" thread, I had fun looking at other micro builds others have done. Although the crane below is not all that small in an absolute-value kind of way, given that I sought to replicate an immense crane, at least in scale it is. In fact, although I did not plan this, when it was all said and done the model below was very close to scale of official Lego Micro Figures. Not perfect, but close. Introducing my Micro version of the Liebherr 13000. My build is a little different.. Did not replicate all the winches and the engine is seated in a different spot than the real crane. But other than that it is more or less a replica of the crane. Functions and features include: - Modular - Four fully-functioning winches Engine compartment with diesel engine - Manual forward and backward drive - Manual rotating superstructure - Movable cab Not a ton of functions – but at least some for a micro model.

  8. 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.

    MOC: Tiny Cargo Ship

    Hello. Quite some time ago I posted a MOC called Tiny Ocean Liner. Now I have completed another vessel that I call Tiny Cargo Ship.
