Well, I said I would buy myself a big technical technics kit,
I did no wrong with this pick up, 4 wheel steering-drive-suspension,
new shocks models, 2 new motors one servo.
15 hrs to assemble, and a pretty difficult challenge to customize,
I knew I was rusty with technics models,
I did nt know I was obsolete...
those new parts are a real engineer s dream come true,
very realistic and complicated.
it will take me a long while to fully master this beast...
while it s not possible to do doughnuts on my floor,
it can climb almost any hill.
I bought 2 motocrosses in order to be able to use the wheels for cars or trucks,
I love them, they re real cool!
I built this hill to demonstrate the climbing capacity, suspension,
and I ve never seen anyone doing backgrounds for technics pieces.
it makes a nice pic with the bikes, although not the same scale.
so, now I m equipped to make big trucks, cars, and bikes,
in the future, I will probably buy only vintage figs kits,
I plan on getting some classic space, aquanauts, and enlarge my monorail kit.
Hi! Thanks for your comments on my creations! The arm design wasn't good with other parts, because I needed them in the chassis and in the turning part and there aren't too many hinges in the set. And the blue bricks are too long for this chassis. Congrats on your new sets! Maybe you remember my dakar rally truck (with the chassis of this 9398). It was in the top 100 in the technic competition, so Lego sent me the new blue crawler. I'll start building soon! Oh, and if you have questions in technical things, leave a comment on one of my creations or send a mail! :)
Some of the latest Technic kits are brilliant, including this one; and those bike wheels are great for making Citroen 2CVs.... My favourite part of this is the backdrop - as Mike said, simple but effective.
Quoting sam the first
thanks Sam! the scene was fun to have the crawler going over, I had to restrain though, as the tires s rubber left traces on the bricks, I ll use black if I want to do it more longer.
I have the Crawler too, it's a pretty cool set, I switched some gears to make it faster, in theory it's an easy modification, but practically you have to dissamble quite some of the chassis to get to the gears...
