  1. [MOC] Ice delivery truck

    White ice delivery truck building instructions.
  2. My goal as usual is a strong and playable MOC, I think it will have steering, fake engine and a pneumatic tilting bed. I am not sure with the suspension, it works fine but I don´t like having it only on the front wheels. I like the sturdy and narrow rear axle and the parts that prevent the axle of the front wheels from sliding in.
  3. Inspired by the Speed Champions cars. Last year I built a car showroom to show them off. Al's Autos is built on 3 large baseplates. On the left baseplate the blue and white sign has doubled sided brick plate writing and rotates on a Technic turntable. The showroom has a roller door entry behind the office on the left. It is fully tiled inside and lit with PF LEDs. On the right baseplate the brown turntable also rotates on a Technic turntable. The footpath is designed to match up to the Modular footpaths. My own creation cars are a Pick Up truck with removable Camper. A Ford GT40 reverse engineered from a LEGO YouTube movie. The black Pontiac is a KITT replica and has a working red LED scanner in the front. Next was a service centre / workshop for the showroom.The back section is a parts department. On the right are two service bays. The front one has a working Technic pneumatic hoist. Also PF LED lighting. The shipping containers can fit a Speed Champions car or spare parts. To keep the cars clean I next built a car wash. This has a working Technic based linear actuator to move the brushes back and forward over the car. So after a long day. It's off to the Drive In movies. The diner has a projection room, kitchen, counter, seating and toilet. My own creation cars are two NYPD police cars with working light bars. A yellow NY taxi. The two Porsche 911's are modified with brick headlights and door handles. The ambulance has working LED light bars, headlights and taillights One day I will get around to doing close up and interior photos.
  4. 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
  5. MOC: Blue Pickup Truck

    Blue Pickup Truck Building instruction
  6. Hello everyone, My new creation is a big Tatra. It is my first 8x8. All problems of size, weight, friction and powertrain were the most challenging for me. Total weight: 2790g 2 hard coupled XL motors for 8 wheel drive without differentials. They are connected to each output of V2 receiver #2, powered by 8878 battery of left side. (Motors of the rest are connected to V2 #1, powered by 8878 of right side) 1st and 2nd axle are steered in different angles by 2 L motors. M motor for 2 speed heavy duty gearbox. 9:1 (high) 25:1 (low) Working steering wheel and V12 engine. Openable hood and doors. External roll cage and LED lights are easily removable. This is my suspension setup. The central axle is free from the friction by the force of suspension movement. Each 6.5L springs limit the angle of swinging half-axles. In these limited angles, bevel gears smoothly engage. Since the building process was complicated, I haven't made instructions yet. Hopefully it will be available in a few weeks. I drove it in high gear in most part of the video. Despite heavy weight, not a single gear was damaged. In low gear, it is surprisingly powerful.

  7. Hi all, I decided to have a go at this competition as it seemed like a laugh, and I had a lot of fun making what I currently have. My idea was to make a vehicle and strap a massive great machine gun sort of thing on it, and sticking it on the back of a truck seems like the perfect idea, right? But a truck with a machine gun on it's own would be rather boring, so I decided to give it adjustable pneumatic suspension, for those tricky bits of terrain it might encounter, and of course slam it right to the ground for that street cred. It's powered by a buggy motor, so it's pretty fast on flat surfaces. Mode 1, extremely low for maximum speed Mode 2, maximum height for off roading purposes! Of course, being hydraulic, the suspension can be at whatever height you want, but this is to prove the point. Now, my favourite part of this suspension is that it acts like the sort you'd find on one of those lowrider cars, and as such, it can pull off crazy moves like this, just for showing off purposes. The truck cab as it stands is still a work in progress, I'm not quite as good at aesthetics as I am at designing the technic part, so bear with me in that department! Here you can see the mechanism, it works with the pneumatic ram, and springs in order to give the desired effect. Tyre omitted for clarity. Apologies for the poor pictures, It's the fault of the camera. For the machine gun which I talk about, this is still all in my mind, however, I want to utilise some form of spinning disc mechanism and accelerate a plate or a technic beam at high velocity that way, but I will keep you all posted on that side of development Hope you all like it! -Ender
  8. I present to you my Lego Technic Chilli Crawler! This is a complete makeover and overall improvement from my previous Carrot Crawler: http://www.eurobrick...howtopic=112037 Yes, I know. This is the second crawler that I named after a vegetable; expect more! Features: - Triangulated 4-link live axle suspension using 4 soft, black shocks. - 4x4 with one PF XL motor mounted parallel* to each of the two axles. A final gear ratio of 1:5.001, yes this may seem slow, but the enormous Super Swamper tires make up for it. - Speaking of that, 4 RC4WD Super Swamper tires. No, they are not Lego, I got them from a nearby hobby shop. - One L-motor for steering in the front axle, geared down via worm gear to 8 tooth gear, then a 12 tooth gear to a 40 tooth gear. The 40 tooth gear drives another 12 tooth gear that moves a 13L gear rack. - Portal hubs for all four wheels. Standard Lego Unimog for the rear axle for rigidity; custom triangular plate portal hubs on front axle for a steering pivot point closer to the center of the tire. - Good articulation, about ~55-60 degrees. - Controlled with an SBrick. - Powered by a Lego rechargeable LiPo battery. - Green Chilli Stem** * The mounting of the drive motors parallel to the axles was a must for this crawler. By doing so, I have not only eliminated gear slippage as there are no perpendicular gears, but there is also a ton more ground clearance in both the front and rear axle. The rear axle especially as the motor is actually on TOP of the axle. Crazy, huh? ** Makes the crawler look so much cooler. Challenges: - As with all 4-link suspension setups, the mounting and placement of both the links and the shock absorbers proved to be a rather annoying, tedious part of the process. I have, however, managed to make a VERY rigid triangulated setup where the shocks are not bent or warped in any way. - The mounting of the two lower links on the front axle was also difficult as there was virtually nowhere I could mount these links onto. I was able to (somehow) securely mount both the lower links and the shocks of the front axle onto 7L and 9L beams on either side of the motor. - Mounting the motors parallel to the axles proved to be hard, but actually somewhat straightforward when it came to the rear axle. I had been so used to having drive axles perpendicular to the axle like on my previous crawler. The mounting of the front drive motor was difficult in the fact that its power is transmitted through various gears and the motor itself is connected to the axle by two plate beams and a pin or two. Although the front drive motor is still not completely rigid, I have had no problems with gear slippage whatsoever in either axle. Some pictures: And finally, here is the youtube video: I welcome any suggestions or comments you may have. I will, however, say in advance that I DO NOT plan on making a body for this crawler as I designed it for performance purposes mostly, a Lego "comp-crawler" as you may call it. Thanks, pt

  10. Hi to everybody! I'm here to present my new Moc. I started building this crane truck about 6 months ago with the main idea of solving the problems related to a failed attempt of a crane for my previous truck. IMG_1608 by Lucio Switch, su Flickr Starting from the cab...despite the undeniable resemblance to the cab of the dump truck (with a bit of the tractor truck), it has slightly different dimensions, and the add of some new details/functions, forced me to revise it completely. In fact, in addition to the "standard" opening doors, this time, as on real trucks, the cab is suspended, while maintaining the tilting function and the working steering wheel and the front grid is openable. Moreover the seats are pneumatically suspended via 2 (1+1) 1x5 pneumatic cylinders. The chassis has the tractions on the 2 last axles, they are driven by 4 XL Motors and uses 2 Servo Motors to steering the first two axles (with different turning radius). The first two axles use independent suspensions. In this case I was inspired by the Mod of the chassis of my Tractor Truck done by Efferman ... that has a perfect shape for a fake v8. On the back there are 2 live axles (with a total of 24 hard shock absorbers). Between the first two axles there are two small pneumatic pumps moved by two L Motors. In addition to that, on the chassis are present 2 Li-Po Battery, 5 Leds for lights and 2 SBricks. Behind the cabin there is the base of the crane, it contains the front stabilizers, extendable via a M motor (connected to one SBrick), 6 pneumatic valves, moved by an M motor each, 4 IR receivers to control the 6 valves motors plus 2 other M motors, one to rotate the crane and one for the winch. The 4 receivers take power from a port of an SBrick. Finally the crane ... well, the classic design of this type of crane with the upper arm offset (as on 8258 for instance) built on this scale, gave me big problems twisting the whole structure ... and a lot of headaches. One day I came across by chance in a truck with a Cormach crane, it presented a unique design that would solve the twist problem. So inspiring to this design, I have developed my crane, which consists of a telescopic upper arm (extension via 2x 1x11 pneumatic cylinders) supported by two side arms moved by 2+1 2x11 pneumatic cylinder each. It isn't able to lift heavy loads, but it works and, considering the masses involved, I'm fine with that. Now some numbers: Length: 86,4cm 108studs Width: 24,8cm 31studs, 28cm 35studs with mirrors Height: 39,2cm 49studs Weight: 8.6 kg Total number of parts: 8000 PF elements: M motor: 9 L Motor: 2 XL Motor: 4 Servo Motor: 2 PF LED: 5 Lipo Battery: 2 ..and a couple of wire extensions Pneumatic Elements: Small pumps: 2 1x5 Cylinder: 2 Medium Cylinder old: 4 Medium Cylinder new: 2 1x11 Cylinder: 2 2x11 Cylinder: 6 Valve: 6 ..and several meters of pipes. For more pictures check my Flickr Album: Crane Truck Flickr Album And this is the video: To conclude, I would say that, in some way it was a new and interesting experience for me. Due to circumstances beyond our control, I was forced to transfer my Lego room in the basement, comfortable although perhaps a bit rustic but not directly connected with my apartment. This, coupled with the fact that my free time has been drastically reduced, has led me to review my usual workflow. So this is my first model built before digitally and then physically. This way allowed me to use better my free time and to select and pick up only the needed parts to build, reducing drastically the mess in the living room. Also part of the work for the BI is already done, I'll done them for sure, but I don't have idea when they will be ready. I'm afraid that it will be a huge job! I hope you like it!
  11. [WIP] Big Truck

    I want to present my last creation - actual progress of my BigTruck. I wanna build realy big truck - width 32 studs seems to be big enough... I was partly inspired by great Peterbilt created by Sheepo and also 42070 new Technic set. I want to build 4x6 truck only but finally I build 4x6 with switch to 6x6. Instead of PF was BuWizz used. Actual functions - drive powered by 4x XL motor and steering via Servo. Switch between 4x6 and 6x6 mode via small pneumatic cylinder. More photos on BrickLink I will be out of home for 3 weeks so I hope I wil be able to finish my truck in September
  12. Hi! Two years ago, I did a motorizable cherry picker for a contest on the french forum TechLUG. So, I used the comments I had, and I decided to : - Use a more little scale - Better proportions - I did a better cab. In the first MOC, it was too heavy because of the battery box inside it. - The first cherry picker was motorizable by a M motor ; this one is only motorized, more simple and efficient. To summararise : Better proportions (I hope ^^) Only motorized I use inverted gearboxes for : - Outriggers - Arm - Turn table And the manual functions : - The steering (of course) - Extension of the arm So, here's the result: The simplest function is the steering. But there is the L motor over it. So, I used three 16t gears to turn the wheels directly by their axle of rotation. And now, the gearbox. It's an inverted gearbox : the "out gears" turn in the opposite sense. So, when you invert the position of the driving ring, you invert the rotation of a function. Here are screenshots: The outriggers can up the truck: the wheels don't touch the floor. To finish, the arm. It has a triple deformable quadrilateral. I needed so much time to do it, but it's nice to see in action. And the video :
  13. 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.
  14. I'm back again with new MOC! This is a "Military Half-Track Truck". The model is about 20-studs long, about 18-bricks tall, and 8-studs wide (about 10-studs with tires and tracks). The model also features, articulated steering and suspension, front pendular suspension, rear track suspension, openable bed, and interior. Though it has an interior, but it can't fit any minifig. Half-Track Truck - Front by Kamal Muftie Yafi, on Flickr Anyway, this model was originally built for Dgustafsson13's 10K Building Competition. And you can read some more information and renders in my Blog!
  15. Behold, my latest MOC! The airport catering truck! This is attempt 3 for this MOC. I had 2 ideas before which I tried, but both were abysmal and failed. One was a car transport truck, but the gearbox was messy and there were no good functions I could make with the pieces from 42043. The second was a revival of 8868, but that turned out even worse as different parts of the truck were on different scales altogether. Finally, I scrapped it and decided to start fresh. Thus, this project was built. If you're wondering why there's paper on the side of the container, it's due to the lack of panels in the 42043 set (I would have needed at least 14 more to coat both sides of the container, but then it wouldn't be an alternate model). On the other hand, now there's a logo! It's the logo for the LSG Sky Chefs, a company that makes airplane food. The hardest part of this project was getting the gearbox not to slip for the pump and drive function. Early on in the build, I didn't realize it, but the lack of reinforcement came to haunt me towards the end. As a result, the side panels are crude, but they keep the gearbox together, just barely. Until the very end of the project (when I added some backbone to the truck), the entire vehicle shook when the pump was activated. So the model had and still has some faults, but in the end, the build was worth it and I believe the model looks good and works well. Feel free to leave your thoughts, I would love to hear them. Pictures and video below. The model is 1 42054 long and 1 42054 high. Thanks for reading/watching and I hope you enjoy! BrickbyBricktechnic
  16. Custom produced by FTF (Floor Truck Factory) using components from around the world, the truck was first put in use in 1989 by the Roseboom company. After switching owners and company the truck is nowadays beautifully restored in his old glory. After finding images of the restoration I fell in love with the color scheme and the challenge was set to build this beauty of a truck. Tan, red, sand green and dark green - Flickr The cabin tilts to reveal the V8 detroit diesel engine - Flickr Fully detailed interieur - Flickr The truck is combined with a Scheuerle EuroCombi Hauling a humongous dark red beam. The final model is build with full suspension, working fifth wheel, opening doors, cabin tilt and remote controlled with Sbrick. The trailer has a mechanical steering controlled by the two turntables the beam rests on and a detachable and operatabel gooseneck Dark red combines perfectly with the truck in my opinion - Flickr Yes, it is a long truck.... - Flickr The trailer comes fully equipped with extra weight and tools - Flickr Most of the details have been taken care of - Flickr PS, Yes the rims are painted.
  17. Hello, I modded the Lego Technic 42041 Race truck. Here are the modifications : Full black color with grey pin's New exhaust Trucks wheels (2 in the front and 4 in the back with a modify rear axle) French flag on the front intercooler Yellow and red colore on the back intercooler (in reference to the Wroclaw's speedway club) Differents curved 3x11 panels on side One stud lowered trailer attached Some pic's
  18. Hi eurobrickers This is what we will talking about here: a mini scale semi dump truck based on a Mercedes Arocs 6X4 and a solid tilting bed mounted on one 3 axle trailer. This time I decided to keep it small. My son asked me for something simple this time but fun to play with. So I do. I worked hard on the design of this little set. The smaller it is hardest the design is I found. I am however quiet happy with the end result. From the front view you can see I choose a contrasted color scheme for this truck. Regular blue frame, white cab and black to simulate the plastic covers and accessories of the cab. I place light, traffic signs, rear view mirror, antenna and gyro on the top. All we need to make it look good, as in real life model. The top view show the roof treatment. This part was particularly hard to find. You have a discreet HOG, the security roof trap that opens and two small panels to finish the roof line Viewed from the back you can see I managed a space for the rear window, exhaust pipe, spare wheel and a toolbox. I do not forget the back lighting with one projector but also rear stop and traffic lights. The 5th wheel is a simple pin connection. I found another system (mechanical lock) but it doesn't match perfectly the scale of the model so I decided to remove it. But there is something more about this cab...it tilts and the doors can be opened showing the interior with two seats and steering wheel (not it is not operational ) The complete model is 36X8X11 cm. I am particulary satisfied with the proportion of the whole thing. Rear view of the trailer, same detail attention than for the tractor unit. You can see at first plan the locking system of the bed's door (simple friction pin). And here is the view of the railer once lifted. The mecha is dead simple: one linear actuator in direct link with the HOG place on a real ergonomic place. Few pieces, great playability. The trailer as also a retractable parking support with simple linkage command and lock point to assure it's stability. Here it is: But that's not all. I manage the all wheel one good ground clearance as my son play with it on it's bed (often by night ) and I realized a quiet complex pendular suspention on all axle. The system is based on Pippasseyeyoyo's one developed on his own semi dump truck. I just scale it down a little . Suspention in action. the first axle is rigid on the tractor unit So here it is...do not hesitate to comment it and any good idea to improve it is welcome. Steph.
  19. Hello everyone! I present to you the first ebouch of work that will occupy this summer: a recycled truck of European type. At the exit of my dark age this was my first subject that I treated in lego technic. The model of the time had a awful design and many (too) features Here is my program for this model: Its scale will be granted to my latest creation. Size medium. No RC on this model The manual functions will be the steering on two axles, already realized and functional, a fake engine V6, already realized and functional, a cabin liftable. At the powerfunction level, I will use a simple medium engine coupled to a reverting gearbox for four functions. These four functions will be: the rear loading of the trash bins, a compactor with two synchronized movement, the lifting of the rear part (compactor) and a scissor ejector. The ultimate goal is to have a model that can be left without worries in the hands of a child. The carrier frame is fitted and already shielded for this purpose. At the level of functions I will use mini actuators and for the compactor a system that I still have to test but based on what is done in GBC. Here are the first photos of the current progress, I will post the update as and when progress. Your comments are welcome. As you see, the build is not symetrical. Fuel tank on one side and fake compressor of the other side. The lighting is already incorporated. Placing it later is one mistake i will never do anymore... To be continued...
  20. Hi ! Here is my WIP for the TC6 contest. It's a transport truck with a palfinger crane on the back. My model have 4 powered motors. I use a gearbox, so i have 7 functions motorised. - Selection of operating mode (M-motor) Driving : - Drive (XL-motor) - Steer (M-motor) - Outriggers (M-motor) Handling : - UP arm (XL-motor) - Rotate arm (M-motor) - Open arm (M-motor) + fake engine and suspension When the gearbox is in neutral, it is possible to drive in hand with HOG. And small render with LDD. Very far from the quality of Blackbird.
  21. Hi eurobrikers, Here is my current project. A Volvo FH truck destinated to be part of a larger play set using the TLG Volvo EW160. The whole model will have a crane truck full RC, a trailer and the EW160 official lego excavator. As always i build this for my son and so i t needs to be really playable set with lots of function fun to play with. Regarding to this the new Volvo EW160 inspired me. So the concept is to have a fully rc truck with manuals function added to it. The toy will have pneumatics, PFS, RC, manuals functions.... so much for a child to enjoy! My goal with it : Truck : 7 motorised functions + RC PF light = 8 channels on standards Rc official system. Propulsion by L motor Direction by servo on first and second axle with reduction . report to the cab Deploying stabilisator by rotation. Able to set up the stabilisator on 180° : M motor Stabilisator up and down: M motor Crane rotation: M motor First section of the crane arm: M motor Second section of the crane arm: M motor All the these functions are realised and integrated into the framme actually. All working very smothly and with corrects speeds. Time for some pictures of the WIP : I have now to face some difficulties and have to answer some question. What is your opinion guys on these points : 1 Color of the rear crane ? actually thinking for black, to fit with the EW160 design or orange? 2 Position of the two PF receivers, actually in trouble with that, no neat solution 3 tilting bed. The EW 160 is equiped to load a bedactually. Cannot imagine not being able to lift it. The problem is Zero place for an additionnal motor into the frame. Thinking to lift it manualy ? Thanks for your feedback on these points.
  22. Beck's MOC Thread

    Hello everyone, Since I am going to be making more town related vehicles, I decided that I should probably just put them all in one thread. My latest creation is a MAN TGS 8x8 crane. I have a 4x4 tractor with low-loader coming soon Thank you for reading.
  23. Custom LEGO Garbage Truck

    Hello. I decided to build custom LEGO Garbage Truck. I like what I've built! This LEGO MOC is easy to make and it took near 1 hour to create it. I used only 43 bricks. I needed green, white and gray LEGO pieces. I will put it to my LEGO city. You can built this garbage truck, too. Just watch instruction and all needed bricks in the video. Do you like my new MOC?
  24. Custom LEGO Airport Service Car

    Hello! Today I decided to build custom LEGO airport service car. And this is what I've built. I used only 50 bricks. It took near 1 hour to make it, but I like the result. I will put this MOC to the my custom LEGO City airport. To build it I used yellow, gray and black LEGO pieces. I think, I can make not only one service car, but two or three. Do you like my new MOC?
  25. Custom LEGO Coast Guard Car

    Hello! Today I decided to build a coast guard car. I like the result. It's small and easy to build. I used only 31 bricks to make it. Car is build up with blue, white and black colored bricks. On the roof of my MOC I added a yellow surfboard. I will put this car to the LEGO beach. I like all official LEGO Coast Guard sets. I want to build LEGO coast guard ship, helicopter and small boat. Do you like my new MOC?
