Not yet :)

You guys have the right to see me more active. I hope I can bring you instructions for three models (AT-ST, Y-Wing and updated Lambda) and this one soon.
As the weather is getting nicer, It's easier to take pictures and videos of my models. Pictures means instructions... and so on.

I'm not dead yet!

That looks amazing! But what is Hand of God steering, and is there any motor?

Hand of God steering means that you (God, compared to your miniature car) can drive your car around with your hand, when the steering wheel is easy accessible by hand (on top of the roof in this case). Otherwise you'll have to reach in the passenger space to turn the wheel (like in my 4x4) which is less ergonomic.
No motor, pushed by hand. It's fun enough and otherwise I couldn't get it so small.

G, I'm always surprised by the new ways of connecting pieces you discover. Never thought of checking if the tan clips fit into the holes of the blue hinge connectors like that. Brilliant!

Really nice design as well. I'm impressed with how compact it is. Keen to see what different colour variations you come up with. Seems to me a yellow version could work due to the amount of metallic yellow connectors?

That looks amazing! But what is Hand of God steering, and is there any motor?

Notice the grey gear in the front steering system? It means he can steer the car while moving it by rotating that gear. Almost as if a 'hand of God' wear reaching down and steering the car. through the gear.

^That's correct. I added my own explanation :)

Thanks for your comment :) The blue hinge-tan clip is about the smallest linear hinge you can get. It works perfect in this configuration and it's so simple.
The small size of the model makes it accessible for more people :)
Yeah I thought so too. And the red and orange won't hinder the main yellow colour. I also have some yellow 4-way pieces to throw in, to replace the black ones. The rest can stay silver/grey.

Long time since I made something that actually works...

This sports car may be small, but features HOG-steering (Hand of God, as seen in many LEGO models). I came up with this idea pretty spontaneously. The rear axle also has a stiff suspension system, featuring a blue flexi rod.

I'm thinking of making the model Yellow/Orange/Red, due to the flexi rods in the front.

Agreed. I like bridge building :)

Also I thought of a rubber-band car. I thought: well but not everyone has the same rubber band. True, but the judge can use the same one all the time. Rubber band: those thick ones the post-delivery uses (in holland at least).

Great ship, great model! Really curious about how you will drive the model (the motor to the rocker part)
Keep it up! Scenery finishes it greatly!

Like the ideas coming from you guys. I'm sure we can organize smthn again, keep the ideas coming

Awe that's a shame. I'm planning to make a video of the event/exhibition, because it's the first time I have so many models built at once.

I'm going to take:
- Millennium Falcon
- Slave I
- Lambda Class (Improved version)
- Sebulba's podracer
- X-Wing
- Snowspeeder
- Y-Wing (New!)
- AT-ST (New!)

This looks pretty promising!
Don't forget that a motor can draw several mA's... if drawn directly from your microchip, the chip will not like that! Best if you switch the motor on/off with a transistor. Speed you can regulate with PWM (Pulse Width Modulation). The Arduino has this on several outputs.

Amazing! That would be great! :D

We have this set, but this should work as well :)

The code you are looking for is 63030. It's the same set

Hi there!
Nice to see you finally created an account for your own :) Hope you're going to make some cool stuff!
(I say finally because I've heard the rumor since... a year?)

Hey! I decided I will buy ALL your silver 32 mm rods. (I hope you have many) I'm going to sell my models + Instructions here:
On KUG and KnexSpares silver rods are unavailable, namely. Will you then also sell the parts for the people individually, on there?

Thanks for providing the picture!
They can be bought here:

I'm not sure, but my guess is that they fit to LEGO holes as well
