Since all time, a large LEGO Technic Cement flagship has been in my imagination...
The large barrel is the fundamental and most important element, but it is also the least obvious to build with LEGO bricks.
I knew the Model Team style interpretation that Lasse Deleuran gave to this challenge, about two years ago.
He also made it in such a way that it can work as a GBC module.
Now he made some updates in the drivetrain to make it a true 8x4, and also used some new elements.
Here it is the end result. Awesome!
Although it is a Model Team style, it also includes a lot of built-in Technic expertize, but does not resume to that. The inner side of the barrel, which forces the "cement" content to come out, is a masterpiece made in bricks.
There is also a clever mechanism to start/stop and reverse barrel rotation.

Additionally you may also find many pictures from this model, at his Brickshelf Gallery.

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!
