Some of my Lego bits





Crane boom operated by pneumatics.



This truck can be programmed to do pre-selected tasks thru a barcode scanner. Can grab objects by its front clamps and then take it back to its load space on the back. Also, it can be set to travel a distance by some variable speed operating motor.



The car has following features:

* V8 engine (non-functional ) but as the car moves, pistons travel inside engine compartment
* 4 wheel drive with 3 differentials (front, rear, centre)
* 4 speed H type working gearbox
* Independent suspension on all wheels
* 4 wheel steering (when steering is rotated, rear wheels rotate 50% of front wheels)
* pop up headlamp (can be operated by a lever from driver's seat)

I love legos but they dont really belong here, perhaps a different thread? Id love to show off my lego collection.

I think its a 1:18 Dippy. Cause the rims fill out the arches well. And in the 1:18 Hot Wheels the rims are tiny with high profile tires.

yep didnt really notice that. I agree the rims are tiny on my model. Waiting for Cyrus to shed in on the details of his model. Cyrus some pictures too if you can. Want to compare Maisto with the Hot Wheels.

Wait.. so Maisto is making Ferraris now? 599 GTB? Damn I didnt know that.

Akshay you 'just discovered' you have a DB5? Is your house a treasure trove of Scale Models?
