My version of fantastic lego unimog. I tried to make it look like u403 but dont have many orange parts so its not 100% correct.
Crane moved to center (manual turn)
Longer boom. Double cylinders for first and second part.
Stabilizers which use LA. Run by set's own M motor trough the second gearbox.
Added second gearbox for switchin between Stabilizers and rear power-take-off.
Motor now has switch to allow better usage.
I made it first RC controlled but it was way too heavy for one XL motor and steering mechanism has too much loose so I disassembled it.
Very good modifications. The looks can maybe be improved but in a time, you know what part, order it (in orange) and make it even better. I do really like the position of the crane, and yours is better working then the set. In your build, the battery pack is also resonsable for the little lean to that side.. Keep on moccing!!!
Just finished building this last night. Great mods, I much prefer the crane position. Does yours lean slightly? or have I made a mistake? I think the brace on the front axle causes it (and maybe the weight of the battery pack) Shame the hand of god is not very responsive. Anyway it's still an awesome set.
Great mods - the crane is much better positioned in the centre, rather than the official set's precarious position out the back, and I also prefer the look of the older style Unimog too. I can only give it 4/5 as it's based so heavily on the official set - but nevertheless a great set of improvements.
