Hey, I haven't even had the time to publish the photos yet! :)

Ooops, I found it yesterday at UT and there was already a nice discussion with comments an answers about this model.

So I posted it here too. ;)

BTW: Think I stopped to receive notifications from again!?

Sariel said...

It's not a problem, I'm just surprised how much attention this model got with a video alone :)
The last notification I got was about the new rechargeable battery from two days ago. I'll try to publish Kenworth as soon as possible, and then we'll see.

I think the light functions are very attractive, and thus the interest maybe.
I've thinking to do something similar (...yes, I think a lot...).

Eagerly waiting to read your detailed explanations about the implementation.

It looks like the automated trafficators still have some problems!?

Sariel said...

Yes, there is approximately 50% chance that they will come up together. It can be prevented, but it needs more space.

Sariel: is your site down? can't resolve the domain name here..

and reports it's down too!


JAMS said...

Nice job on the design Sariel, its really easy to mess up the proportions of a truck like this.

Curious as to how you implemented the trafficators :)

Sariel said...

The website is up, and I should be able to publish Kenworth there as soon as its pics get through Brickshelf's moderation.

TechnicBRICKs said...

Are you sure, you need to wait for moderation?

Wouldn't the pictures deeplinks work right away?

Sariel said...

The deeplinks would, sure, the thing is that I'm using a custom PHP script to generate a gallery from Brickshelf for my blog. And I'm to lazy to make this script log itself on the BS, so it has to wait until the moderation is done :) Not to mention that some photos are rejected by moderators sometimes.

Sariel said...

PS. Half an hour with Curl later, I got the script to log in to Brickshelf remotely.
It's amazing how much a man can do only to do less :)
