What is it?
It is a LEGO
technic full motorized remote controlled HALF-TRACK, with two interchangeable FIRE
MODULES. These modules can be optional but it is very cool to play with !
: I called it “BULLFACE” because of its front view, only horns are missing (see the first picture : full technical plan) ! It
cans move in any directions. Lights switch on when it moves forward or backward.
It is not so tall (16 in, 38,5 cm) but five power-function motors are hidden
inside (2 x L, 1 x M, 1 servomotor + 1 M
per fire-module) !
: They can spin, they are interchangeable and they are full automatic-fire.
V 1.1 : Fly
hunter : Based on the “six shooter weapon”, four of them are shooting together
(= 24 round plates 1x1, perfect for hunting flies at home !)
V 1.2 :
spider trap : Based on the “spring shooter weapon”, eight of them are putted
together (= 8 arrows are fired very fastly : spiders, fear has switched sides!)
Why did you
For my fun
Fan of LEGO
SYSTEM since my childhood, I only discovered power-function and its remote
controls two years ago. These functions bring LEGO TECHNIC set to life ! I found
it amazing and decided to take my few technic sets to pieces, in order to
create this half-track.
half-track BULLFACE is based on two IDEAS :
1- To build a
reliable off roader : caterpillar-tracks make the traction, wheels make the
direction. Build a half track became obvious, and pretty cool
to create with WWII half-tracks design.
2- To have a
fire function for fun. The idea was to combine a motor with a LEGO weapon
system. As I build two systems (six shooter weapon and spring shooter weapon),
I made it interchangeable. It is very cool to play with : quick fire, but quite
long to reload !!!
Why do you
believe this would make a great LEGO set?
It could be improve in many ways but this prototype is already ready to use : robust
and handy (useful crane- handle, accessible battery...) and above all it is really
fun to play with (remote controlled, off roader, fire options).
