Paperinik77pk posted a topic in LEGO Train TechHi all, since 7777 book came out, I've always wanted to integrate Trains and Technic worlds. Back in the 80's the problem was the complete lack of train wheels with a Technic axle hole. It was solved with RC trains a lot of years later. Therefore, I can convert a 9v train to PF without too many problems (aesthetically speaking). But for 12V trains it is different. Wheels are made in a specific way, they have the hole for connecting rods, they're more "fat" than RC/PF wheels. Frankly, I do not like 12V trains converted to 9V/PF standard bogies. But I like the PF motor, its speed, the possibility to increase speed gradually...and the fact it keeps the central hole for third wheel. So, in these years I repaired a lot of 12V motors...and some were really in bad shape. Look at the right wheel, it is completely destroyed inside. So I decided to try to implement my solution to connect standard, intact 12V wheels to technic axleholes (which I do not list here, since it was not satisfying). First, I got a standard Technic bush, and cut it a bit. Then I put it inside the damaged wheel hole. It fits fine, but needs to be glued. Once glued, it is time for some testing. The 6-long axle goes right in - but the red ring coming out from the wheel is too thick. So I prepared another wheel (gray bush). This time I cut the bush a bit shorter and fits right. The 5.5 axle is perfect , so I'll need to cut two 6-long axles to the right lenght. And this is the result - this is my 7740 no°3, totally converted to PF. It works fine, but as you all can imagine, it is all made by hand and bushes are not machinery-centered. Therefore the locomotive is not stable as I would like. For the moment, better than nothing!

[Render] Volt by The Mugbearer, on Flickr Meet Volt, the electrifying space ninja aka Tenno from massive multiplayer online third-person shooter called Warframe. It's not entirely clear, whether Tenno are people that wear Waframe suits, or Warframes themselves, or some incorporeal presences that can switch between Warframes like bodies. The latter is logical if you think of it from a gameplay standpoint. Volt here, in addition to being one of the starting 'Frames, is a master of electricity, which is pretty obvious if you look at his name. Of course, I cannot show it without any sufficient special effects, and I will probably work on the image in Photoshop later, but at least you have now a good idea of what Volt looks like. I will also provide a screenshot with his front and back views. In his hand Volt holds his trusty Boltor nailthrowing machine rifle. For some reason I believe that Boltor is one of Volt's signature weapons. It oddly fits him. Anyway, comments and critiques are welcome, and as I promised, the screenshot: Volt by The Mugbearer, on Flickr
