Mercedes-Benz Arocs 8x8 chassis (unfinished MOC)

With the new big Technic set 42043 Mercedes-Benz Arocs coming to the stores I want to share my unfinished and abandoned Arocs.

Two years ago a Mercedes Trucks dealership in Spain asked me about built a Arocs 8x8 for them in big scale. When I had the chassis finished they decide don't buy me the truck, so I stopped the development, but I kept the chassis assembled because I didn't need the parts for other projects.

This is what I built (the chassis has tons of dust... but after two years on a shelf is normal ;) )

MAP & Jeep Willys Instructions

For more info about this creation click HERE



The instructions are made in PDF format, and they look very similar to the LEGO Official ones.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
The instructions and the part list of both chassis include the steps to build all different wheelbases and fake engine configurations.
So if in the future you want yo buy a new bodywork you only need to buy the bodywork if self, not the chassis again. Or if you want RC and Manual versions of any car you only need to buy one bodywork.

Modular All-terrain Platform & Jeep Willys

I am here again to show you something new and I think very insteresting.

Some months ago a topic started by piterx, inspired to design a little, fast, simple and funny 4x4.

My original idea was build again a Land-Rover Defender in small scale to help to the people who likes my previous Defender but it is too much big and expensive.

But when I was starting the car I though about that will be even more interesting if I design a chassis which can be used in many differents 4x4. I finnally designed a modular 4x4 platform.

I have called it Modular All-terrain Platform (MAP)

There are many verions of the Type 2, this one is of the BUS version, known as "11 windows", it is very easy know why ;)

Kamov KA-32 Coaxial helicopter

After many cars and other land vehicles, now its time to build something different.

This creation is based in the Russian helicopter Kamov KA-32.

This helicopter has the peculiarity that it has two coaxial rotors turning in opposite directions, instead of the traditional main rotor with a small tail rotor.

Volkswagen Beetle (Type 1) '67

Here is my lastest car. The classic Volkswagen Beetle, officialy called Type 1, or informally in some places around the world the VW Bug.

This car received a lot of modifcations and improvements along the years, I have built the 1967 model.


[Introduction by wikipedia]

This is an economy car produced by the German auto maker Volkswagen (VW) from 1938 until 2003. The need for this kind of car, and its functional objectives, were formulated by German government, wishing for a cheap, simple car to be mass-produced for the new road network of his country.

Alternative parts for rare soft axles

I want to talk about a big problem when you create a technic MOC: the soft axles.

They are very usefull to create soft curves, corners and transitions in technic models, specially in the bodywork, but as probably most of you know, the soft axles have a big availability problem.

Sequential gearboxes family

Today is the third anniversary of this website!!

And for celebrate it I will show you many information about all my sequential gearboxes until today.

With my latest cars (Caterham Seven and Shelby GT500), I have introduced a new sequential gearbox type, and to avoid problems with how to call this new one, I decide add a new way to call all of them.



Since now the new versions of the sequential gearboxes will be called with ordinal numbers. In this ordinal numbers don't enter other gearboxes types like: dual clutch, planetary or CVT, just normal sequential gearboxes.
