A blast from the past, Some of my older MOCs, Part 4

This time we will take a look at some of my older Technic MOCs. I seem to have quite a few that I haven't posted here so I thought I'd post them in this "series" along with my other old MOCs.

First up is my AP40 Half-Track:


This was one of the larger Technic MOCs I've made which used two battery boxes, two XL motors, two M motors and two IR receivers. This was I think the only Technic MOC I've made that uses two battery boxes and two XL motors as one of the battery boxes and one of the XL motors are from my 8275 Motorized Bulldozer. I try not to do that any more as it takes to much work to be honest.

This is one of the many MOCs I've made that I want to build again but a lot better. This one would be one of the hardest to do mainly because of the tracks but one day hopefully.

Next up is my AP12X Monster Truck:


It may not seem it but this is possibly one of the most influential Technic MOCs I've made as it really was the start of the way I now make the bodies for my Technic vehicles. Before this I used LEGO bricks for the body which made the model heavier as well as bulkier compared to using plates.

It was also the start of me trying out different designs for suspension without using the actual suspension parts that LEGO make. I'll be honest it really didn't work very well but it was the beginning of how I build vehicle bodies now so that's something right?

Right I think we'll leave it there for today. On the current MOCs front I still haven't decided what to make next, I have a idea for a MOC but I'm not sure whether I'll be able to make it yet... In any case see you next time.

MOC: Motorised railgun

Hello all. Well I finally got round to taking some pictures of my latest Technic MOC, A motorised railgun. It was mostly inspired by the railgun on Metal Gear Rex from the MGS series. It uses a XL motor to rotate the platform a full 360 degrees and a M motor to move the railgun up and down. It also has a couple of PF lights for the railgun barrel. I quite like the way the actual railgun looks but that's just me. Not much else to say about this one really, On with the pictures:







And a video of it:


And that's it. Hoe you liked it and I'll see you next time.
