My LUG is holding a building challenge for one wheeled vehicles.
A lot of the entries are really nice, but I wanted to do something funny and functional, so I built Dizzy Digger.
I started with the huge TECHNIC wheel for good support and moved on with the two piece studless beam chassis.
Next came the huge THECNIC bucket in front, attached to the chassis, both directly on the bottom and vi extensible arms (like hydraulics) so it can tilt. So there we have the functionality I wanted!
Finally, I started work on the cabin, always trying to balance the whole thing. Now, the "huge TECHNIC" references make sense, because the drivers are tiny in comparison. And there's the funniness in it! Success! :)
So there's my story. There's nothing much to say about the MOC, beyond this, but I'd like to take the opportunity to give you guys a simple practical tip on photography, I'm no expert, but I guess every little thing helps. :)
It's usually a little hard to find a good background for photos, so this time I tried to find an easy solution: I placed the MOC on a large dinning table with a neutral colored towel. That gave me a nice background underneath, but did nothing for behind the MOC. So then I put a large LEGO TECHNIC set box vertical on the table under the towel. This way I got a soft background behind the MOC.
Hope you liked my MOC and my humble photography suggestion.
