Volvo F12 in Lego

VOLVO F12 INTERCOOLER 1:13 SCALE LEGO® MODEL - "SEVENTIES LOOK" LEGO BOX

And again Andrea Lattanzio presents us his new Lego Truck. In this case, it is a fantastic Volvo F12.

VOLVO F12 COMPOSITION

“To realize the LEGO® model I’ve used the magnificent 1/8 scale model released in 1987 by Pocher (historic Italian brand of static model making, failed few years ago and now bought by the english Hornby). I’ve bought a very good F12 Pocher on ebay in 2010 (I’ve looked for it for a long, long time!)

VOLVO F12 INTERCOOLER - IN LINE 6 CYLINDER ENGINE

First of all I’ve designed and built the chassis, estimating the ratio with the 1/8 model. Then I built the cab and all the details (fuel tank, air tanks, tool box, fifth wheel, exhaust pipe, etc…). Last but not least I realized the 6 cylinder inline engine. I finished the work on april 2011 and I think the “red giant” looks very fine!”

The Lego System (Also called studed) design of the truck is what attracts me the most… It makes the look of the truck much more sophisticated. I really like it.

Finally, the wires at the back, the yellow and red ones, look amazing! I have never found something like that, except in Andrea´s mocs.

I hope you liked it! You can check Andrea´s FlickR gallery here.

Sariel´s Tank Transporter

The famous Lego Technic mocer Sariel has made an incredible creation again. He is well know of mixing Lego Technic with a fantastic Lego System design. This means, with not technical pieces. Just see.

This is the “KZKT 7428 Rusich”, a Russian transporter. And its Lego version is amazing.

As you will see in the next pic, it is controlled with a joystick. However, the tank that goes on top of it is controlled by the Power Functions system.

The weight of all the batteries should be considerable. 3 rachargable batteries and a Lego Mindstorms brick aren´t light.

Well, the traction looks very easy to make. But if we look at it closely, we can see what is it like…

Very interesting as I said. Two Lego Mindstorms motors controll the speed and the steering. One of them is conected to an linear actuator so both parts of it can steer easily.

Finally, Sariel offers us a video. Here you will discover all the tricks of this amazing creation by the Lego genious.

I hope you liked it!

Lego Functional Hand Mixer

It looks great, with a fantastic design, eye-catching shape and colours, realistic size… All with Lego Bricks. But there is more in this wonderful Lego machine made by hippotam

LEGO Hand Mixer

There is a Lego Power Functions set inside it! And of course, with those motors, it is fully functional!

Video can be seen here.

I hope you liked it!

Lego Colossus!

Again, Ryutaro Yamaguchi creates a nice figure. The smooth movement of the wings is perfectly achieved and i loved it. Only using doble bevel gears the result is very atracttive.

And with that colours it looks like a Republic ship!
