  1. Hi Boys and Girls, I am happy to share my newest creation. Follow link for instructions More details here 3D-Play here This Grand Prix Air-Truck is an alternate build for official model 42144 Material Handler. All 805 required parts to build comes with this set and there is no need for other parts or other sets to build this Truck. In order to give this model a complete look, 7 spare parts are required that are all available with set 42144. Inspired by a real Race Truck, this model features: manual steering with knob openable doors on both sides tiltable cabin with lock V6 engine with moving pistons Pneumatic functions high-adjustable rear-axle with air air-suspension detailed design 32cm x 15cm x 15cm (38cm with open cab) In scale, this alternate build fits all mid-sized Trucks from the past years with the same tires and rims. Impressions Air-Suspension and how it works This model comes with Pneumatics and an adjustable rear axle that is connected to the V6-engine, where air-filled cylinders acts like shock absorbers. The lower the air-pressure is, the smoother the suspension works. The harder the air-pressure is, the harder the shock absorbtion works. The rear can be adjusted from low with no suspension to the highest point with full air-suspension. Instructions are very clear and understandable on how to connect Pneumatic-parts and tubes. Instructions Premium PDF instructions for this 42144 alternate build comes with 181 pages of high quality images and building steps to ensure a long and satisfying building experience. Following are example pages to show the quality of instructions: We will Truck you. This Grand Prix Air-Truck alternate build uses almost all parts from the given set 42144. Have fun with it.
  2. After building the 1:8 scale Spano GTA, I wanted to make something more compact, yet even more functional for the BuWizz camp 2021, which got postopned to 2022. The rules behind this model stated to build a 1:10 scale representation of a real existing car, which has to have a working gearbox, fake engine and working steering wheel. After researching different types of super and hypercars, I chose the Acura/Honda NSX since it had several good pros compared to the more famous brands like Ferrari or Lamborghini: The real car has a smaller profile, which means a lower weight It uses a hybrid AWD system, which would come in handy for the LEGO model for accelerating and braking on all wheels Engine powering is a V6, which doesn't take as much space as the typical V8, V10 or even V12 Since it's a less known supercar, my LEGO version could be the first one in such scale I used a simillar technique as with Spano GTA where I imported the 3D model into the Lego Digital Designer and used it as a 3D reference. Using this technique I ended up with a really close representation, and it really shows: As you can see in the gif above, not only does the model look very good, it's also full of functionality: 4x BuWizz motors for driving All wheel drive 2 Speed gearbox Working fake V6 coupled directly to the drive motors Working steering wheel 2x BuWizz 3.0 for control Double wishbone suspension on all wheels Dimensions and weight ended up as following: Length: 45 cm Width: 20 cm (without mirrors) Height: 12.5 cm Weight: cca 1,5 kg Here is how the model's underside looks like, drive motors are driving two independent gearboxes in order to evenly spread the mechanical load. This kind of a setup also cancels out any side forces on the central drive axle, thereby reducing friction and wear: In order to cram all the powertrain components in the rear the drive motors are placed in a V shape. This way there is just enough space between them for a functional V6 engine and a PU medium motor which switches the gearbox: Thanks to the compact powerline and driveline, the interrior is very spacious and both seats are almost 1:8 scale sized, measuring 6 studs wide. There are even stoppers and interrior details on the doors themselves: ž The end performance of the model is higher than what I expected, there is enough torque to freespin all 4 wheels, jump over ramps and top speed in high gear is almost 20 km/h! You can see how well it performs the video: To conclude, this is my first 1:10 scale supercar which also ended up extremely compact, functional, robust and good looking. I also think a 1:10 scale may be beneficial when it comes to reliability and robustness, since models tend to weight half the weight of their 1:8 counterparts while still incorporating a simillar level of functionality and details. Having said that, this will not be my last 1:10 supercar and I think for the next one I will ditch the gearbox and simply drive the wheels directly from the motors without any weak differentials.
  3. EDIT: Final version of the model: Instructions on rebrickable: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-106054 Gallery on Imgur: https://imgur.com/a/M10jtrz Original Post: I figured out a proper steering mechanism for a chassis with full-size piston engine at the front. This chassis doesn't have any issues with leeway on steering or ground clearance. I built a prototype body for this chassis that is easily detachable. I'm not fully satisfied with the look yet, so I will have to iterate more on the body before I'll make instructions for this model. Noteworthy ist that this kind of construction should be also feasible for RC semi tractor where the motors would go where the seats are in this model. Video shows the details, how it works and how the body is being attached:
  4. So I have been meaning to post this for awhile, so here are the few reworks I made. Updated Feature List -Full Body Suspension Front: Soft Double Wishbone Suspension Rear: Hard 360 Live Axle Suspension -Positive Caster Angling -Working Steering Wheel (controlled by servo) -Working V6 Engine & Spinning Fan -Altered Body Shape and Structure -Fake Engine Intake -Opening Hood -Cab interior (Dash, Folding Chairs, and Steering Wheel) (The working steering wheel function has been removed to reduce unnecessary wheel pivoting and weaker steering/suspension/axle structure) -The Working V6 Here's a video of it: Hope you like it! Have fun building!
  5. I really like many of P-Lego's MOCs. I wanted to build two of my favorites, the Lancia Stratos and one of the rally cars. Alas, I'm short on PF, so I thought I'd mix it up with alternate designs using fake engines and HOG steering. I present the Lancia Stratos alternate and the Rally Car alternate: The Lancia was an interesting challenge mimicking the original body while fitting a full-sized fake transverse V6, rear differential, and full suspension. I eventually gave up having a suspension on the rear and just went with the front (too little space). It came together in three separate pieces: front, middle, and rear. The suspension in the front has a lot of travel and a tight turning radius. Some of the proportions are different, especially the fenders in the front and the height of the rear trunk (had to make things fit). There is actually room in the front for a spare tire (in place of what would have been the battery box), but I didn't have one when I made the model. For the rally car, I wanted a full suspension with a fake engine and rear differential as compact as possible. It has a mini fake V6 in the front. This was built in two parts, the chassis with all the moving parts, and the body with the HOG wheel. The body attaches to the chassis with 6 easily accessible pins. When connected together, its a pretty sturdy connection. In theory, the chassis could fit to many alternate bodies. More images for the Rally car, Stratros, and both. Currently working on some instructions (LDD is quite a time sink). I'll post when I get around to it. Thanks for looking, and thanks P-Lego for the cool MOCs.
  6. This Ford GT is the ultimate expression of form following function. Its teardrop- shape body is the result of extensive work in the wind tunnel. Its carbon-fibre body and its 600-plus horsepower 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine are the ultimate expressions of technological innovation. Flickr: https://flic.kr/s/aHsm7qSxrk Hello Ford and Technic addicts! Thorsten has completed professional instructions for the Ford GT. It might be time to disassemble your 42056 Porsche Kit and build this orange replica of the 2017 Ford GT! Avail at Rebrickable, check it out! Rebrickable: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-10792/Loxlego/ford-gt Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/gp/139930963@N04/83f95A Video: https://youtu.be/bV8_uOz50oU Ford GT - race car for the road ? by lachlan cameron, on Flickr This supercar packs RWD driven by 2 XL-Motors, Servo for steering, pushrod-actuated torsion bar style suspension front and rear, Sport and track mode suspension, V6 engine, Sbrick plus, Rear spoiler with manual lift, 2 M-motors (1 for each door), button to turn on the car under the hood, easy battery access. Ford GT - From drawing board to reality ? by lachlan cameron, on Flickr Nothing about this build was easy. This car had so many new things that I've have never accomplished before. To start was the framework. I was worried this build would be too heavy for the pushrod suspension. Each wheel has 2 inboard shocks that are positioned in the same fashion as the real Ford GT. Ford GT - door mechanics - filter shot by lachlan cameron, on Flickr I really wanted to have the doors open the same as the real car and this is where difficulty started. Opening those huge, heavy doors was a small feat in itself. The pressure required to pop the door to the final position upwards is immense, so I has to seriously gear down the axle. Ford GT - doors by lachlan cameron, on Flickr The next challenge was the motor placement. Man was it ever hard to fit everything inside a tear drop bodywork! I had to use the middle of the seats for the Sbrick, which may not look too cosmetically appealing, but I can assure you it did completely strengthen the framework immensely. (this may be my sturdiest frame I've made) IMG_0043 by lachlan cameron, on Flickr Lastly, I kept the Veneno to race the Ford GT as they have identical gearing. If you watch the video, you'll see who wins. I will work with Thorsten as well for professional instructions in the future. Ford GT back view ? by lachlan cameron, on Flickr A big thanks to @brunojj1 for suggesting to place more studs between the wheels. I tried it this time (2 extra studs) and I feel it looks proper. thanks! Ford GT - white room - filter by lachlan cameron, on Flickr
  7. Some of you may be familiar with the Hob Rod, the project I was doing on and off throughout a few years. The idea was to pull a hot rod with some nice functions and details while keeping it in a ~35 stud size. Various other things and issues made it a long term project and I have no doubt this baby will be improved even further. Well, here's how it looks now. 37 studs long because of the exposed rolling chassis arms, uses Technic and System parts as you can see. Intended as a cruiser and salt flats racer - and a small tribute to the Kustom Kulture - it's based on the '30s trucks and features many details that won't let you forget about that. Raise Hob. Features: ► fake mountain V6 engine with moving pistons ► blower with chain-driven pulley (1:1.5 crankshaft-pulley ratio; 1:3.501 axle-pulley ratio) + Enderle-style bugcatcher + fake carburetor + external tachometer and oil pressure gauge ► working differential and transmission (2.334:1 crankshaft-axle ratio) ► coupled '30s style link steering connected to steering wheel and a HOG ► detailed cockpit with a steering wheel, dashboard, custom skull-shaped gear shifter and comfy channeled couch for two ► channeled and chopped body style with kustom roofline + functional bed with Moon tank ► classic radiator grille and "zoomie" exhausts, front tow bar and rear push bar and rear engine emergency shut-off lever ► locking suicide doors with internal handles and slanted edges + locking, chain-suspended bed gate ► exposed suicide front axle + wide, fake leaf spring-suspended rear axle, each wheel with fake drum brakes
  8. The front half is mean. The rear half is business. The whole car means business. I give you my favourite MOC to date, a modest, but satisfactory build: The Hob Rod. A '30s pickup truck that was obtained by a hot-rodder and turned into a pickoupé hot rod with a decent dosage of chopping, channelling and grinding. It's powered by a blown V6 engine, creating a fine example of quite an extreme kustom kulture-influenced vehicle. The car started as a simple mod of 42022 - the plan was only to put a differential in it, maybe include opening doors. Of course, the whole thing resulted with a lot of loose parts ordered on-line and now is a completely different vehicle. It took me a while to find and execute the proper way have a HOG and rotating steering wheel bypassing the transmission axle. When it was done, everything went smooth. Features: ► mountain V6 cammer engine with moving pistons and Iron Cross-decorated cylinder heads ► blower with rotating pulley + bug-catcher & carburettor + external tachometer and oil pressure gauge ► radiator with a tiny-tiny puke can + a set of headers and classy exhausts ► working differential and transmission ► 30's classic link steering connected to steering wheel and a HOG (all featuring an intricate steering vs transmission bypass system) ► detailed cockpit with a steering wheel, dashboard, custom skull-shaped gear shifter and comfy channelled couch for two ► slanted roof and roomy bed for that pickoupé feeling everybody desires ► locking, rear hinged "suicide" doors with shaved handles and slanted edges ► exposed suicide front axle + wide, leaf spring-suspended rear axle for perfect control at salt flats ► rolled pan rear bumper and a club plaque I apologize for the poor quality of all photos, that's the best I can do for now.
  9. Hello Eurobrickers! Today I want to show you old race car from '70 years. I built it almost 3 years ago and from that time car was put in wardrobe until today.It has V6 supercharged engine placed right behind drivers seat, disc brakes on each wheel and big spoiler at the rear. This is only my vision of that kind of car it's not a copy of anything. Functionality is very poor but it has a openable trunk and steerable front wheels It is built mainly from 8258 parts and stickers from Crane Truck were used as well. Diameters: 35 stud lenght, 11 wide and 6 high. Weight about 240g. Gallery: Link to BS gallery: http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=529491
