  1. As a tribute to this truck this project shows some of the unlimited possibilities. It is a model of a KrAZ 255B 6x6 off-road truck which is used for extreme applications. Even though this specific truck was never produced as a civilian truck however after its retirement it has been used as such. Within a couple of minutes it can be changed into one of the four different editions which include: - Semi-truck with fifth wheel - Ballast tractor with ballast box - Trial Truck edition - Log Truck with stinger steered trailer So it is up to you what kind of job it does: just having fun as it being a Trial Truck, or will you give it a semi-trailer? Or will it be hauling logs? The truck features: solid axle suspension on all axles of which the rear axles use a tandem bogie suspension, PF powered driving on all axles 6x6 drive, reduced speed to increase power/torque, Servo powered steering, fully functional fifth wheel, modeled V8 engine, detailed cabin interior and two light units. Actually you could build this yourself. Building instructions and inventory/parts list are available. Early in the building process you will see what it is that you are building. You will be very excited from the moment you start the build of "Truck T14" KrAZ 255B 6x6 till you finish it with about 290 different parts totaling 1800 pieces. Scale: 1:17,5 Length: 477 mm (+ trailer 926 mm) Weight: 1,92kg (+ trailer 2,41kg) Parts: 1840 (+ trailer 2270) This KrAZ 255B 6x6 model is powered by a YaAZ-238A V8 4-stroke Diesel Engine which is visible with the hood opened. This power source has 8 cylinders in a V setup with a displacement of 14,87 liters. The initial YaMZ-238 delivered 215 hp with a torque of 785 at 1500 rpm. Since 1966 the YaAZ-238A engine was installed and delivered 240 hp with a torque of 883 at 1500 rpm. This detailed V8 engine is nice to build and to give it those realistic looks a total number of 80 parts is used. It is detailed with for example air filter, fan, fan belt, pulleys, hoses, by-pass oil filter and the exhaust system. Both L Motors, which are used to power the truck's drivetrain, are positioned laterally on each side of the chassis. The rotation of both L Motors is reduced using a single gear reduction one for each. The power produced by these motors individually is merged by the length differential. To increase off-road capabilities it has limited slip applied. One out going shaft is powering the front axle, but not without being geared down once more. The second out going shaft of the length differential is powering both rear axles. Both rear axles have there own gear reduction which is equal to that of the front axle. Again limited slip is applied, but to the rear axles only. The front axle has Rubber Belts installed instead of shock absorber. It's double rear axle setup is fitted with a tandem bogie suspension. The use of this setup allows easy axle and wheel travel. Both front and rear axles are fitted with "Technic Steering Wheel Hub with 2 Pin Holes". These hubs have proved to be a real improvement, less friction and the wheels do not bend under the weight of the model as it would without. Semi-truck with fifth wheel For a basic configuration a fifth wheel is mounted. Because of this a semi-trailer can be hooked up. Since this is a common application it makes the truck extremely versatile and depending on the used trailer it still suites any kind of terrain. At the rear end of the chassis has wedges installed to allow easy attaching of any semi-trailer. By adding a winch the versatility can even be increased. The battery box is simply sitting behind the cabin and the spare tire is mounted to the truck's roll bar. Ballast tractor with ballast box As used to haul extremely large and heavy loads this truck can be fitted with a ballast box. What it basically does is adding weight to the rear axles to improve traction. While fifth wheel mounted trucks have there semi-trailer to add weight to the rear axles it is now replaced with a ballast box. The truck's battery box acts as the actual weight. A spare tire is mounted that fits the truck as well as four spare tires that would fit for example a drawbar lowboy trailer. Trial Truck edition To be used as just an off-road truck to fool around with a trail truck body can be installed. To distribute the weight of the truck equally over all axles the battery box placed on top of the rear axles. Even though spare tires are not common for trail trucks two are installed to improve the looks of this truck. It is always impressive to see a truck with these large wheels having some spares. Mounted to the roll bar and easy to access when needed. Log Truck with stinger steered trailer Using this truck to transport logs requires to additions. The first one is a bolster mounted to the truck's chassis. It is sitting directly on top of both rear axles which enable good weight distribution. Second is the stinger steered trailer. Basically this trailer is a large tube with a tow ball at one end and a partial chassis with a bolster and two sets of wheels attached to it. The two sets of wheels are attached to solid axles which uses the same hubs as the truck does. Essentially the axle setup is equal to that of the truck without the drivetrain. Again it uses a tandem bogie suspension setup which allows easy axle and wheel travel. To hook it up to the truck it has a tow ball which connect to the truck's tow ball socket. The trailer's bolster is exactly the same of that of the truck and both are foldable. Finally the partial chassis with the axles and bolster attached is slidable. Allowing the full log combination to haul different lengths of logs.

    Town/City Moc on LEGO Ideas

    Hello Fellow Lego Fans. Recently I designed a unique MOC, a classic Lego Street Sweeper that has modern features, but still give homage to the classic Lego Street Sweeper Sets including the 6645, 6649 and 7242. I researched each set, and noticed that their availability was becoming lower. So, I thought it might not be a bad idea to do an updated Street Sweeper version for Town and City builders as a possible release. Having to consider modern design aspects, I did try to "build-into" the MOC an easy conversion of the model for those wanting a more "true" town look. Likewise, in a Vintage City Theme, some design elements might not be correct for the time period. So, this design affords the ability of each interested parties to have the ability to "remove" far more than they might need to "add" to the design to make it fit their layouts. I would not consider this idea a "universal" approach as much as an "adaptable" approach. Following all of these considerations, features, and potential applications of the MOC as a kit, I also had to find a unique design that was believable, kept the parts count under control, and served as a believable "next generation" version to Set 7242. A new feature in this MOC is the use of the Lego 2441 vehicle base, which saved parts, fits modern design efforts and shows that with creativity large scale designs can be implemented on the 2441 chassis. It was an interesting challenge to try and incorporate all of these aspects into the design and still make it visually appealing. Currently, my MOC can be found here on Lego Ideas: https://ideas.lego.com/content/project/link/678e85c3-5563-4062-8537-ac26c4761d8e Thanks for allowing me to post. And if any one here likes it, I'll hope they'll drop by Lego Ideas and give it a vote. Happy Building! --Zeeverse

    MOC: Little Threewheeler

    Okay Gang,meet the Fleet: The Ronnel Goblin was a small Vehicle that was very popular in the 50s and 60s.Mostly by People in rural Areas but also in Cities when People didn`t have the Money for a "real" Car.Well,the Goblin really tried to be a real Car with a Cabin With of other Compact Cars at the Time but it just can`t hide it`s Origins.Ronnel was a Manufacturer for Mopeds and small Motorbikes which had it`s only Factory in an Industrial Area in Lego City. The Engine was a quirky little two-stroker with roughly 25 HP.Sounds not like much but the Goblin was very light,thanks to the used Materials like Aluminium,Plastic and Wood. The Goblin could be ordered with various Configurations and Attachments. The Threewheeled Base and the high Center of Gravity made the Car a bit unpredictable at high Speeds and in Curves. The End of the 60s also Set the End for the Goblin.New Safety Laws and plummeting Sales were the last Nail in the Coffin for this Car. Well,today you can still see them here and there and a large Fan Community still moves those little Threewheelers. More Variants are in planning.Any more Ideas?

    [MOC] Fire Units

    Here are my current fire units. These are for the Brickshore Fire Rescue District, which is the main fire department in my county, Brickford. This is Engine 1, a 2013 Pierce Velocity side-mount pumper. It has a 500 GPM Waterous pump with a 2000 gallon polycarbonite tank. It is eqquipped with a Federal Signal Vsion SLR lightbar and a Federal Q siren. This is the second version of Engine 1. You can check out the new one here: http://mocpages.com/moc.php/376620, and the old one here: http://mocpages.com/moc.php/374415. Up next is my Utility unit! This is the BFRD's Utility unit for Station 1. It runs with Engine 1 for MVAs, medical calls, and anything that involves a trailer. It is a Ford F-250, converted by KME into a small service unit. It has a hard bubble cover on the bed, but it doesn't hold anything. It has Whelen lighting, and as you will see, there is a traffic advisor in the back. The wheel are raised a stud, due to the trailer hitch, and I think that making it one stud higher makes it look a lot more like an F-250 than a 150. The truck is pretty much self explanatory; not much else to say. Check it out on MOCpages: http://mocpages.com/moc.php/376041. Last but not least, the command car. This car is a 2013 Ford Interceptor used the BFRD for the chief. That they don't have. We have the car, but not the Chief. Anyways, same as the Sheriff cars, blah blah. There will be two more of these; one for each station. This one is driven by the chief, and the other two will be driven by assistant chiefs. It's on MOCpages here: http://mocpages.com/moc.php/377101. Plus, the entire Brickford emergency fleet! Look below for 'Muricah pride! This is a car that would be, if you guys like it, more or less acuratly made into LEGO for the BCSD. I made this on Ford's Mustang Customizer. It is a Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 that would be an unmarked pursuit unit for the Sheriff's Department. The reason why it would be a pursuit unit is because of the supercharged intercooled 5.8-liter 32-valve aluminum block V8 engine delivering 662 horsepower and 631 lb.-ft. of torque. Plus it just looks badass, hands down. Do you guys think I should go on a limb and try this? Post below!
