3S bus
Here is another one of my creation. It is not the best one I did so far so don't get you hopes on but I believe it to be something worth showing. Anyways it's another bus. A kind of futuristic bus which functions are mentioned in it's name. 3S stands for Sightseeing, Speed, Shapeshifting. To explain it better I had an idea to make a bus for tourists who want a whole new sightseeing experience. It would be fast and it would be a shapeshifter - it can be low for cruising the highway and it can be high when there is something interesting to be seen. As for that 2nd high position I don't know if you noticed it but passengers are in the same position when it transforms. They are not bent over following the slope that platform makes. Their seats are straight and since they are heightened they see all around better. That's why the roof is made of glass. The bus is shorter when in that mode so it's a perfect cruiser for the city streets crowded with cars. As for the construction it is very light even though there are 2 medium PF motors, one XL motor, battery box and 2 sensors. I had an idea in my head so it was done pretty fast. The body was a problem. I started to do a brick body but it failed every time. So I gave up and did a technic one and it works for me. I hope you like it.
About this creation







Here is how it looks when it's changing form


As i said even though it's lifted enough to form a big slope, guys in there sit straight.


When in this form you can see the part of the construction and the motors. Also the inside as the doors open.


The thing about the doors. It just had to work in both modes. The only way it could work is that it opens on the front side of the vehicle and the front grille is also used as a staircase.


As for the video excuse my lousy driving and editing. This is only a display of it's functions so you don't think I'm lying about it's functionality :))

See, it's stuff like this that makes MOCpages a truly awesome place. The style, size, and functionality of the build is such a perfect combination! I love it!

WOW ! Interesting on a lot of points. First, you've managed to do another "bus" with a lot of functionnaly, that is totally different from your previous one, and as good as it ! Second, the technic body is really nice, and this is an uncommon solution for a sci-fi MOC: it works really good here. Third, the functions are original ! Great job !

Quoting Henrik Hoexbroe I have a hard time seeing it being realistic with such a tall urban mode. You would probably need a 3rd mode; A parking-mode, compacting the whole thing into a single cubic meter.
hey, thanx for the comment. The fact that you take time to check all the details is much appreciated, my friend. Anyways that is just the thing. This tall urban mode i think would work. I mean there are tall trucks that go through traffic so why not this one? Imagine the driver using the passenger out in the back who can instantly see if there is a traffic jam far out front so they can take a detour before they end up jammed :))

Im having difficulties with this one. As a LEGO model its excellent with so much functionality. -But in r/l I have a hard time seeing it being realistic with such a tall urban mode. You would probably need a 3rd mode; A parking-mode, compacting the whole thing into a single cubic meter. (The urban centers will love it, then!)

What a brilliant idea! And of course great first photo presentation, very well done on both, the MOC and the presentation.

I like how it shortens while transforming (and the lifting red panels look nice).
