  1. Hi there, I made a movie trailer for every Lego city builders worst enemy. Who is familiar with this problem? ;) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VnXFW2tUAPI
  2. Halloween meets "Dating Game" - This is a new Lego stop motion trailer I made. I would be very happy, if you stop by :)
  3. It's time to show something agricultural. This time it will be a rather unusual JCB Fastrac 3185 tractor and an Oehler ZDK 180 trailer. The tractor model has been on my shelf for almost two years, so it's time to show it. For comparison, a photo of the original: JCB Fastrac 3185 I must admit that the Fastrac series are some of my favorite tractors. I remember being fascinated by them in agricultural newspapers as a child. What impressed me the most was the fact that they could accelerate up to 80 km/h. These tractors are loved or hated mainly because of their appearance. The 3185 is definitely my favorite. I started building it when it was already known that agricultural tires with a diameter of 81 mm would appear with the 42129 set. The frame was built quite quickly and is significantly different from my previous tractors. I removed the front three point hitch and added a front pendular suspension. The tractor is powered by an L-motor, turns using a servo-motor, and the lift and PTO operate two M-motors. Everything controlled by Sbrick. Then I started building the cabin, which has a rather specific shape. I managed to reproduce it quite well and I am fully satisfied with it. The cabin, of course, has an equipped interior with two seats. The biggest problem I had was with the design of the tractor's hood. It has a specific arch at the front with gille and thin frames on the sides. First, I made it with a sticker, but during one of the exhibitions I came up with the idea to use rounded 1x2 plates. It was a good decision. From the beginning, I didn't plan on making a building manual for it due to the complicated shape of the cabin. I finally changed my mind. This required further corrections, but they were implemented quite efficiently. My reluctance to follow the instructions was also caused by the printed fenders that @SaperPL made for me. Not wanting to cause problems for people who would buy the instructions, I built equivalents from Lego, which increased the number of elements by 130 bricks. The final effect, especially after using the stickers, is great and I must admit that it's probably my favorite tractor now :D OEHLER ZDK 180 Such a long delay in the publication of Fastrac was also caused by the lack of a machine to complete the set. I wanted to build a construction trailer, but I decided that it would be quite similar to my previous Krampe BigBody 550. I did not have traditional trailers in my collection. I kept thinking about an unusual color that would contrast nicely with the yellow tractor. I chose OEHLER ZDK 180. I decided to build the box with 23405 panels, which imitate the sides of the dump box well. Surprisingly, the dimensions of these elements matched the dimensions of the model quite well. The dump box had to be reinforced, of course, otherwise the load would burst it from the inside. I used additional strips so that it is now very stable. The visual effect well reflects the appearance of a real trailer. The dark turquise color is slightly different from the one used in Oehler trailers, and in the photos it looks much bluer than in reality. The dump box also has a side locking mechanism that works like in a real machine. The difference is double-side tipping.The real trailer box tilts in three directions. At the beginning of the construction process it also tilted backwards, but the use of a medium linear actuator made the whole thing very unstable. Finally, the box is lifted by two small linear actuators powered by the M-motor. The maximum load I tested was 4.5 kg. I must admit that this is quite an impressive result. Another interesting fact is that I used 67.8x27 tires, which are a bit larger than they should be, but because they are wider than the 62.4 mm tires, they significantly improve the overall appearance of the model.

  4. Perhaps the new theme park needs a better transport which can maneuver in the city, right? Based on my previous truck design, I did this for moving the raptors. The tractor section has a turret that can be used for any emergency cases like dinosaur escape, and now raptor transport can go through the city without problem! Hope you enjoy this :) thanks!
  5. Today I was able to post my latest build (due to personal matters). The Generic Mower 2000! I wanted, again, to make something non-branded, so a riding mower it was. Not much about the build really; It has a two cylinder water cooled diesel. Four wheels. Pivoting front axle. The mower deck can be turned on and off. The seat flips up. The trailer has a removable back. The trailer can dump too. I for some reason was having trouble with the deck because how I modeled it, I did not have the clearance or parts to make the deck raise and lower. Taking care of the flowers and grass. Just a little flex. 15 horsepower of ultimate power! Ready for work. The remaining pictures are located here! and video is here!
  6. Hi After bricking bavaria 2022 I could finish my trailer with remote controlled sliding curtains, landing legs and parking brake. the mechanism of the sliding curtains works with one PU L motor for each side and two winches at the front and rear of the trailer. Over the winches a cable runs trough the floor of the trailer which pulls the sliding curtains. I'm really happy how the mechanism works :) But check it yourself in the video: The instruction for the model can be found here: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-130914/FT-creations/trailer-with-sliding-curtains/#details And some renders because I could not make any resonable pictures until now:
  7. https://bricksafe.com/pages/2ndgenguy Getting there, any thoughts, good or bad. (not crazy about how low the actuator is). Still needing to run the axle up front for that, possible on both sides. Bit more progress, finally time to smooth out the details). Still rough, waiting for parts. New here, and hoping I understood correctly to post new projects here. (Images on Bricksafe). About 3/4 done a 66 by 25 stud tandem flat deck for the "newish" Defender (also modded, black on green colour scheme, with eBay decal sheet, lifted, solid hitch, bumper tow bar attachment points, and a few others). Has 4 wheel independent suspension, with about (2.5 to 3 studs changed), of travel at each wheel with springs, a fold down ramp using one short linier ram, and a fold up dolly wheel at the front. Still lots of little things to finish, any advice on scaling, or tricks of any kind are very much welcome. Edit: now 4 to 5 studs of travel. Trying to use as many olive green panels, and black beams I can, but still waiting on a few more parts, so it's a bit of a VW Harley Quinn. I'm hoping my image works, but haven't much lunch getting the format small enough to post. If this isn't the right place to do this, please let me know, but I'm sure I don't need to ask that. Happy to be here and thoughts and feed back would he fantastic. (Still trying for an image, think this should work)
  8. My new MOC consists of a couple of items to form a big earthmoving plant package. 1. 42078 c model, Renault AE Magnum tipper and dual axle plant trailer. Truck -HOG steering -tilt cab -opening doors -working E9 V8 Mack Diesel engine -tipper with lockable tailgate -hitch at the back to couple to a wide range of different trailers. Trailer -floating pin hitch -folding legs -droppable rear ramps via small actuators -bed toolbox to store wheel chocks, chains etc. 2. 42053 c model, backhoe -4 wheel steering -quick hitch on the loader -tilting hitch on the loader -outriggers -sliding back actor with pin locks to hold actor in place. -quick hitch bucket on back actor -swinging actor with locks to hold in place for transport purposes -lift and extend functions for back actor -pneumatic functions for back actor and front loader tilt hitch -manual functions for back actor bucket angle and front loader lifting and lowering. 3. Mini excavator made from my spare parts box. -lifting and lowering as well as extension of excavator boom -front blade -swinging of main frame -tilting bucket Altogether this creates an ideal construction and earthmoving plant package. Hope you all like it.
  9. Hello everyone! Looking at the presented modes over the Internet have found that this set fantastically fits into the golden scale for the small-medium models like 8109, 42008, 42024 and may other trucks including the MOCs. As there is a big topic for Mack Anthem modifications (42078 Mack Anthem Mods and improvements), here my point is to present the compatible cargo attachments like trailers, semitrailers, and other possible variations. (@moderators - please feel free to merge with the main topic if you still think that this way doesn't deserve the dedicated topic).

Drawbar trailer (2-axles) with turnable front axle (dry van, double-sided gates) Is coming... _______________________________________________ Converter Dolly (1 axle) First things first, even the smallest ones. While I'm still working on the biggest ones I'm glad to present some kindly unusual thing: A-dolly or converter dolly trailer that is usually used to turn semitrailers to normal trailers making them being able to be towed by normal trucks (not semi-trucks). This thing is made of Mack's rear end with the rear axle (not driven now) and fifth wheel and is equipped with a pair of wheel chock, a static A-shape drawbar (I very proud of it, really!) and removable stand support: LDD file is available: https://bricksafe.com/files/Void_s/42078/dolly/MOC - A-Trailer Dolly 1-axle.lxf (I know, it's not a fair coupling - just demonstration of how it could be done) one degree of freedom - fifth wheel fixed axle (no suspension) fixed A-shape drawbar removable stand support wheel chocks The source of inspiration was GreatDane's real-life converter dolly: Off course, it's not a full-size and large trailer so far but I found it highly required for the further road trains like for some Australian or newly appeared eurocombi coupling: normal cargo truck + semitrailer attached as a trailer using tow hitch. Moreover, this simplest thing should be capable to work with only up to 24T semitrailers (one axle, yeah) so I'm about to finish the elder brother: 2-axle A-dolly with some tasty function
  10. maybe we can make, like the axle collectors thread, a collection of trailer coupling systems. to make a base i have made a semitrailer coupling for semitrailers with steering. lxf please post your own ideas for trailers and semitrailers for giving ideas look this vid
  11. Hi! Here is small preview of my first serious Technic MOC. More info will come if this is good enough content for here. Here it is: Goal here was just to mod set 42043 B-model, but things got out of hand as always, you test ideas and then suddenly there is something to show for. Truck pulling this is my mod of 42043 B-model, drive by 2x PF XL motors geared 1:1 in drivetrain, then reduced by the new diffrentials, 1st axle is locked, 2nd axle with differential. Steering mechanish is modded from 'Ppung daddy' YT video. Trailer functions: - 3 axles with suspension, soft springs (might need to replace 1st axle with hard springs) - RC loading ramp, L-motor - RC leg support, L-motor - manual motorized winch, M-motor - rear PF lights, black tape is used to cover the extra shine Heres also a mod of Madoca1977's work: source=https://imgur.com/a/Sbmy1WX[/img]
  12. Ever wondered what a large scale caravan would look like? Here, I've made one that has pretty awesome features! Here's the interior! First, there's the kitchen with a cupboard, drawers, microwave oven, 2-burner cooktop and a radio! 2-person bed with quilt! I still need to know how I could make a fridge/freezer that can store a lot of food! Luxurious Dining Suite with 2 upholstered chairs, coffee mugs & fruit bowl! Folding Entry Steps! The drawbar. Here, there's 2 gas bottles, jockey wheel, safety chains and even a security lock on the coupler! The sunshade on the kitchen window can be closed for travel! The shutters on the front & back can be opened & closed too! The entry door can also be opened! Waste Water Pipe Interchangeable Number Plates, depending on which Australian state you live in! (I live in South Australia!) Stabilizer Jacks Those new 'Flat Tile 1x1 Half Circle' (Part #24246) pieces make nice trailer lights! Number Plate Light Here's the food! Additional Features: Two Spare Wheels Removable Roof Opening Side Windows Outside Light Now if only there was going to be a car that could go perfectly with the caravan... Maybe a Holden Kingswood or Belmont Wagon! Thanks for reading!

    Old Memories, New Dreams

    I was 8 years old when I got my first Lego Classic Space set LL918. I remember I spent hours with catalogs looking at LL924 and the Galaxy Explorer LL928. When I got LL928 from my grandma I was thrilled and couldn't let go. I even took it with me on holidays. Galaxy Explorer Dropship by Giorgio Chronas, auf Flickr A few years later I saw the Galaxy Commander in the store. At the time, due to my father's job, I was living in an a developing country in Africa, where Legos were very rare. I was gazing at the store window, nearly paralyzed and probably with a wide open mouth. I had just past my birthday and for Christmas time I would have to wait a long time. As quickly as I could I ran back home broke that piggy bank into pieces, took everything I had and ran back to the store. I still remember the feelings I had when building this spaceship and looking at every new part as if it were yesterday. Galaxy Commander Dropship_1 by Giorgio Chronas, auf Flickr Now, decades later, being an AFOL I still love space topics, specially neo classic space models from other Afols. A few years ago I remember seeing Wolf Leews modernized version of LL928 (and 924 and 918) in LegoIdeas and having exactly the same feelings. I tried to push it in LegoIdeas but unfortunately it did not make it to the threshold. Wolf Leews, if you see this post, thanks for sharing the instructions. I have your models in my showcase ever since. The idea of an own classic space model did not let go of me. It took me again years of thinking how to approach this topic. My problem was I wanted everything. I wanted to have a command centre, several spaceships, some robots some cool versatile and functional vehicles, a garage where the vehicles would go for repair, a habitat, a repair bay for the robots. And I wanted the antagonists as well: Blacktrons! And I wanted everybody to build up his own space station. Uff! Galaxy Explorer Commander Dropship I knew this was impossible. Then my Lego Pueblo came to mind. It was a 4in1 set proposal at LegoIdeas that you could buy multiple times and stack to each other building up your own Pueblo village. My Lego Pueblo did not make it to the threshold but if I did such a concept once, maybe I could do it again. Many months of thinking and planning what to do, which bricks to use, color scheme, how to combine classic space with Blacktron, drawing and doing research followed. Then I started building. The target was a 3in1 space creator set with three different scenarios that you could combine forming a big space centre. Each scenario should have its own theme and its own playability concept. At the same time some models of one scenario should connect to models of other scenarios, so at the end you have one big unity. I also needed a story. As I love sci-fi and astronomy this part was the easiest one for me. What came out was space station "Antares", a 3in1 space creator set, where New Classic Space searches for Legonit ressources and Blacktrons trying to steal it from them. One alternate build is the Mining Outpost, the other one is the Bot Repair Bay and one is the Galaxy Dropship. 9 Antares Classic Space3x by Giorgio Chronas, auf Flickr With the Galaxy Dropship I combined the features of the Galaxy Explorer and the Galaxy Commander and built a mashup that had its own look. Like the Galaxy Commander the dropship can be split into a space fighter and the cargo bay. Like the Commander it may hold a space lab. But it also may hold a space buggy like the Galaxy Explorer. Since the space buggy is from scenario Mining Outpost, I decided it may also hold the truck from its own scenario. Then I continued. The Galaxy Dropship may hold the trailer the fuel or plasma tanks or even a small space fighter which actually is the cockpit of the robot of scenario Bot Repair Bay. The set seems to be huge, too big, but actually it is only big when the set is acquired multiple times. As a single set it has less bricks than the biggest official LegoIdeas set. I hope you like it and support it at LegoIdeas. It is another attempt to bring back some space without StarWars. 5 Antares Galaxy Dropship by Giorgio Chronas, auf Flickr 6 Galaxy Dropship Hangar by Giorgio Chronas, auf Flickr Guys I do not want to bore you too much. Please take a look for yourself at LegoIdeas. Check out the three different video animations (search for "Legocionado" at YouTube) and take a look at the pics of the updates at LegoIdeas (I have made some animated gifs explaining the concept).

  14. Hi! Finally, I present to you my dump trailer for Claas Xerion 5000 Trac VC, which I've built quite a long time ago and teased you with in this topic. My intention was to model a really cool looking trailer Krampe HP30 - a 3 axle offroad heavy haul trailer, which goes perfectly to Claas Xerion 5000 set. I didn't actually scale it, but scetches/blueprints on the official site were of good use. As you can see on the photo below, I made a fake front cylinder, which unfortunately doesn't exist in LEGO Technic, so I had to cheat and used a pulley system to lift this huge red bathtub. String drum located on the front of the trailer is rotated by rear PTO of the tractor. I used the fantastic Efferman's motorized remake, but an OOB 42054 model could run it too. The trailer is steered as well - BUT! - Shamefully, I've realized 1st and 3rd axle should be steered and not 2nd and 3rd like I built it. And that happened just an hour ago while editing the video! Oh well, I will have to put more effort in research next time Somehow, I missed the video explaining the steering part on YT. Steering is modelled by levers and works according to the angle between the tractor and the trailer. The 3rd axle has larger steering angle than the 2nd. As you can imagine, it has some play in it... All three axles are suspended (normal springs for 1st and 2nd axle, hard springs for the 3rd.) - I borrowed and altered axle designs from MB Arocs set. Tailgate raises automatically and is locked when the dumper is lowered. Here are some details, to make the trailer more juicy . ...and the underbelly - for those eager Technic fans, who can't do without . For the end, here's one with a little breeze and a video of course. I hope you enjoy it! You can find more photos here. Partlist and instructions here. Thank you for your attention and constructive criticism! Best regards, Miha
  15. It's been some time since I provided an update on models from my Turbo Racers vs. Police Interceptors series here, most (22 cars + variations and a "dyno") are on Rebrickable now: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/?tag=10127&include_accessory=on&include_bmodel=on&include_subset=on Because the models I want to present today are not strictly racing, I thought about starting a new thread for them: TG Power wrecker This is a wrecker truck based on a modified body of the F A H R T-Laster with the following functionality: Selectable AWD/RWD (propelled by RC Buggy motor (Chinese replica installed ATM), steering by PF Servo motor, power and control by a BuWizz 2.0) manual front winch manual rear boom (closely based on the one from the 42079 B model but with manual double winch) rear PTO (motorized by PF M motor) rear towing hitch Colors are not final yet, e.g. the currently red boom mechanis will become LBG. This wrecker is pretty fast. I experimented with the new diffs to make it stronger instead, but I couldn't avoid gear slipping with a 12z bevel gear against the 28z bevel gear of the rear diff when driving it perpendicular. The propulsion motor then sat half a stud higher but was still only kept in place by pins and could be pushed up over time. Do others perhaps experience gear slipping with the new diff when driving it with a 12z bevel gear in perpendicular fashion? Can this work reliably at all? This video shows an application for the PTO, i.e. driving a small car lift: Car transport trailer This features: double winch at the front for pulling cars onto the platform (can be driven manually or from a PTO) tiltable platform (using two small LAs, manually driven) extendible ramps Except for the coloring I consider it pretty final. Hope you like it.
  16. Dear all, I show you my latest alternative model: Scania truck and steering trailer. The truck is a Scania Next Generation in 1:21 scale. It features: - HOG steering - opening doors - tilting cab - fake V8 engine - adjusting rear height It is in the same scale as my Volvo FH truck The trailer is a flatbed trailer with 2 steering axles. The steering system is directly connected to the truck fifth wheel. Instructions available on rebrickable.com and mocsmarket.com I hope you like it!
  17. Hi folks, yes, I did it again. And no it ISN'T a Unimog :) But hey, it's trailer for it ;) Since all my models are in the same scale (nearly 1/12.5) the trailer has to be too... The model is a four axle lowbed...Overall length is 1100mm the bed is 115 studs long and 25 studs wide. Part count round about 2.500 parts. I got major help with the base and rear ramps by efferman - thanks again :) Enough words - pictures: LDD version: WIP pictures: And now the final model: Video will follow when the temperatures are lower... Have fun watching... Pat
  18. Inspired by Holgi's MOC my friend rr76 and I built a 1:17 scale trailer (Arocs) for overseas containers. There are mountings for one 40', two 20' containers or one 20' bulk container in the middle of the trailer. Furthermore, the left box is free as a tool box. The rebrickable version is controlled with a Buwizz, because the Powered Up cables are too short, this is not feasible in the conventional way. RC functions: - Raising and lowering the supports - Raising and lowering the lift axle - parking brake - rear light My red one is a conversion to a battery box and Sbrick, i only need a housing in DBG. The grey prototype was build with PU, becaus the cables are to short and the PU-M motor is to expensive i used PU-PF adapters. The lights are custom LED with the Lego PU LED cable. Currently there is a 40' container and the prototype of a bulk container, we're still working on a 20' container. The instruction are available at rebrickable for free: https://rebrickable.com/users/Huwi/mocs/
  19. 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.
  20. Hi to everybody, this is my new Moc, I started building this US Truck about 6 months ago and it was finished to be shown to the MEI 2020, unfortunately, for reasons of force majeure, the MEI is posponed so here we are. It's not based on a specific model, surely Mack from Cars inspired me a lot, and I took some inspirations by pics on the web. I chose to build less sophisticated suspensions, pendular on all axles, to allow a more robust frame (due to a very long wheelbase) and a more robust drivline, it doesn't have U-Joints (still some parts could be damnaged). As almost all my others Moc it's driven by 4 XL PF Motors and steered by a L PF Motors, more precise at low speed. It has 2 M PF Motors to operate the two speed gearbox and the fifth wheel. It has openable hood, behind which there is a detailed Inline-six engine with belt driven alternator and clima compressor. It has openable doors with detailed interiors such amortized seats, bed and various storage compartments. The truck is powered by 2 Buwizz but it's possible to use 2 Li-Po Battery and 2 SBrick. The trailer is designed to fit a Porsche 911RSR, original set N° 49096. It has working legs and rear access ramp powered by a Control+ Hub and 2 XL C+ Motors. I chose to use it because I have one on the shelf and because it's compatible with the BuWizz app, so I can control everything using only a smartphone. The trailer has detailed interiors, the car compartments and the meeting7telemetry room. Moreover I built a tool trolley. Now some numbers: Truck Length: 79,2 cm 99studs Width: 24,8cm 31studs Height: 35,2cm 44studs Weight: 6 kg M PF motor: 2 L PF Motor: 1 XL PF Motor: 4 BuWizz: 2 (or 2 LiPo Battery and 2 SBrick) Trailer Length: 127,2 cm 159studs Width: 24,8cm 31studs Height: 38,4cm 48studs Weight: 8.4 kg XL C+ Motor: Control+ Hub: 1 Truck and Trailer with load: Totalal lenght: 175,2cm 219studs Total weight: 15.9 Kg Here the flickr album: https://flic.kr/s/aHsmMGe99T I hope you enjoy!
  21. It's Uwe's creation. The way the functions are incorporated in the main truck is amazing! HOG steering behind cabin, another HOG for cabin tilting linked with overhead deck lifting. And the B model is bloody hell gorgeous. It got me saying OMG I HAVE TO HAVE THIS upon seeing A-model functions: - Truck V6 - Truck Cabin tiliting linked with cabin overhead deck lifting to reveal V6 - Truck HOG steering behind the cabin - Truck lowering second deck - Truck elastic return-to-defaulr car locking cranks that go through rubber 2-stud liftarms on the passenger side - Truck opening doors - Trailer lowering rear ramps - Trailer lowering overhead deck - Trailer lowering front ramps so that car can drive on truck's lowered second deck. - Car HOG steering in the back - Car V8 Car doesn't have opening doors. The trailer doesn't have standing legs. Truck uses 6 Mack wheels. Trailer uses 4 wheels from 8109. Car uses 4 wheels from Corvette. UW logo on the truck's front grille. B model consists of: - 1 big truck with flatbed, using 4 Mack wheels - 1 trailer using 2 Mack wheels - 1 show car using 4 Corvette wheels. This car has a Funny Car (42050 Drag Racer) vibe. It has exposed front V6 and a supercharger on top. - 1 show truck using 4 wheels from 8109. It looks like a boxy fire truck. The rear compartment can be open upward to reveal a V8. The flatbed truck houses the show car, while the trailer houses the show truck. The colors are swapped. The show car is completely in red and uses the red small wheel arches from the truck in the A model. Meanwhile, the flatbed truck is in dark azure, LBG, and DBG, and uses all the dark azure of the sport car in the A model. B-model functions as visible: - Big Truck lowering flatbed - Big Truck HOV - Show Car V6 - Show Truck HOG - Show Truck opening rear deck (like 42070 B) - Show Truck V8 - Trailer standing legs - Trailer lowering flatbed. Parts in new color: - 5x11 tapered panel in RED - Corvette wheel arch in RED and DARK AZURE (42070 color) Rare parts: - 2x11x3 Steering Knuckle Arm (33299) in RED - 3x7 shell in RED (first appearance in 42082) - 2x5 panels in DARK AZURE (appears in 42083 and 42095) - 3x11 shell in DARK AZURE (appears in 42083 and 42077) - 5x7 panels in LBG (first and only appearance in 7160 Bionicle Drop Ship) I spot two gear racks in red holders.
  22. Harry Potter is one of my favorite franchises of all time, so I was really excited to make this trailer! Let me know if you have any advice on how to improve it!
  23. INSTRUCTIONS: https://www.dropbox.com/s/3juzujlb27fqpgw/remorque_5571.rar?dl=0 I have been looking for a 5571 at the right price for a long time, and i finally found one. I have also been collecting parts for the trailer pictured above. To my knowledge, and according to my source of the instructions, nobody has ever built this trailer before. In this thread I will share my progress on building them both. After waiting over a month for my 5571 to arrive from Germany to the US, it finally came yesterday: I found the instructions for the trailer here: http://www.eurobrick...1 Unfortunately the post is several years old, but I messaged the original poster and I was lucky enough for him to respond with the instructions! The trailer is going to be huge, and requires 1628 parts, with 122 unique parts/colors. The instructions I was sent were actually a series of images, and I had to try and find all the correct part numbers on rebrickable before placing my orders. This was a long task and it took quite some time: After much time manipulating different inventories from sellers on bricklink, I placed all my orders and parts have started to arrive! The 1x2 tiles with the grille pattern seem to be pretty rare. They only came in one set many years ago, and I got very lucky finding sellers with enough of them when I placed my orders. I think I am now the only person with 18 of them. I am waiting on 3 more orders before I get started on the build. I will keep this post updated
  24. Hi guys and gals, first post here, been following the forum for about 3 years now. Got bitten by the Technic bug with 42046 and here I am today. Recently bought a 42106 for cheap in Bulgaria and after building 42070 earlier the sloped panels got me thinking - there is a truck hood in this. Sooooo, let's make a truck C-model out of 42106! Full size pictures are located here:https://imgur.com/a/wOlijkp The aim of the C model is to be able to tow trailers like the MACK Anthem's one. M Longer inspired me by his 42075 terminal truck. We'll see if I manage to implement it somehow. The chassis is the same from 42106's pickup truck, then reversed a bit. Track has been widened by 2 studs, fenders made wider as well. The rear has dual tires which for the contest will be swapped with a single one just as the front axle. Currently they are a placeholder and proportions tool... I've seen how long the rules topic is so I had to put this text here... Initially it began as the chassis above, trying to figure where to stick the cab: Then after I figured out its placement came time to adjust where the doors would be. Which happen to be the ramps from the trailer. After some further shaping of the fenders and color swaps until it felt right - I got this below. The blue pins protrude for now as everything was just in sketch phase. Makes it easier to disassemble... Final shot of this for now is this: Further will come soon. I hope this qualifies for the contest as it is almost 17 studs high, please let me know if I can enter. If I can't - I'll continue working on the C model aspect of it. Cheers from Bulgaria! p.s. I am entering this C model in the https://thelegocarblog.com/2020/04/30/tlcb-lock-down-b-model-competition/ The finishing touches and updates were made in May, so I hope it qualifies.
