Patryk Walerzak (Waler93) from LUGPol has been doing some great and huge Technic MOCs like his MAZ 7907 [1, 2], a 24 wheel Russian Truck originally designed to carry intercontinental missiles but never used for such purpose, or his awesome Asphalt Paver [3, 4] - All them deserving a post on themselves.
Although for this post I decided to bring up another model from Waler. A full featured Pneumatic Crane Truck.
It is a really nice blend of mechanical and pneumatic functions, from which I'd highlight:
- Steering via HoG
- Cabin tilt
- Cabin opening doors
- Front and rear lights
- V6 motor (Boxer style)
- Automatic compressor with air tank
- Motorized rear outriggers
- Motorized rotating crane, with:
- Two section pneumatic folding crane
- Manual extending jib
- Dumping bed with double pneumatics for tilt movement
- Dumping bed with four opening lateral doors
I really liked to see how he managed to integrate the manometer in this model, for reading the pressure in the pneumatics circuit, and also the rarely seen V6 Boxer style motor.
You can find several dditional photos from this project at Waler's folder on Brickshelf.
Please avoid sending requests to post specific models on this TBs section.
We understand some of you would enjoy to see your creations featured here, but please understand that because only one video gets highlighted per week, it is impossible to accommodate all the great MOCs continuously build by the Technic builders out there. They simply won't fit all and that's also not the purpose of this blog (see the header statement).
Many of your MOCs are scanned anyway and listed for later publication when they do not fit immediately. However some remain in the backlog queue just for too long and eventually loose the relevance or the publication opportunity window. As a rule of thumb, we also avoid publishing MOCs that have been featured by their authors or other fans at some other great web places dedicated to the Technic community out there. It doesn't mean that occasionally some won't get published here anyway.
Thanks for your understanding!
