Over on LEGO Ideas my Blacktron Scouttrax got highlighted as a staff pick. Which was a surprise and delight! At the moment I am building a C&C frigate called the Blacktron: Blackbird. It will be my first non-technic build since my LEGO darkage and it starting to look mighty fine. Of course I am also still working on a MOCtalk video of my Blacktron Liberator. But at the moment building is just a bit more tempting.

LEGO Blacktron "Liberator" Tank

This is my Blacktron “Liberator” main battle tank (MBT). It is designed to be the backbone of the Blacktron land forces. It is a relatively small and fast attack vehicle with heavy armaments, capable of devastating hit-and-run attacks. At the moment it is just a prototype being field tested but as soon as this design enters full production Blacktron HQ expects to be able to take the initiative once again.



I am planning to make a MOCtalk video about it pretty soon, in which I will talk about all the interesting details of this model.

I made an LDD file of ats1995's LT2.2 automatic shooting mechanism



Hi all,

Been working on a lot of things including three new LEGO tanks. However this will be a little addition to my Automatic LEGO Shooting Mechanisms video. Specifically ats1995's shooting mechanism of his LT2.2. Originally Dacke93 made digital instructions of this mechanism, but unfortunately some time ago he deleted them. The mechanism itself is rather old but it has taught me a lot about shooting mechanisms by building it, and for that reason I consider it a valuable design for anyone interested in LEGO shooting mechanisms. I also received several requests for the digital instructions. For those reasons I have remade an LDD file of this design which you can download through this link:


To view it you will need LEGO Digital Designer (LDD) software, which you can download here: http://ldd.lego.com/en-us/download?ignorereferer=true. Once you opened the LDD file and loaded the digital model, you will be able to generate building instructions by pressing F7.


Enjoy!

MOCtalk Blacktron Scouttrax

In this MOCtalk video I talk about Blacktron in general and about the technical details of the Blacktron Scouttrax. You should watch especially if you are interested in the steering mechanism and the electrics / propulsion of this MOC:





Enjoy and have a nice day.
