RC Routemaster
Hello everyone! This is my newest creation, the RC, minifig scaled version of London's famous doubledecker bus with Olympic games stickers! Hope you like it!
About this creation

About the real thing

The AEC Routemaster is a doubledecker bus. It was built by Associated Equipment Company in 1954 and it was in production from 1958 until 1968. 2,876 Routemasters were built, but approximately 1,000 still exist.

Video


For that scene, in which the passengers get on, I recharged my battery three times, I made 241 pictures and 37 people got on the bus.

If you live in Germany or in other countries, where you can't see the video because of the music, look at it without music here!

Some photos about the creation















Stickers

I looked for pictures in connection the Olympic Games on the Net. Then I printed it and I fixed it on the bus by two-sided tape.

These are my favourite stickers. The first is the Lego 10214 Tower Bridge with the olympic circles. It’s my own invention! The second is England, as the olympic flame. Unfortunately it’s not my idea.





In the bus stop and making the stickers





Inside



The vertical motor drives the steering, the horizontal drives the rear wheels. The driving becomes faster through the dark grey gears (3:1) then becomes slower through a worm screw and a gear with 16 teeth (1:16). The total gear ratio is 1:5.333.



For the steering I used this part. I didn't fixed it, so it can slide a little. The grey bars, the grey pins and the dark grey gear keep it in position. The bars are the parts of this set.



Between the driving motor and the bricks under it there is a half-brick place, so I couldn't fix it. There is 4 stud wide place inside, so I put a 4 stud wide plate and a modified plate (it's on the photo) with the same width onto the bottom of the motor, so it can't spin.



A bottomview. The light grey axle in the middle is the part of the steering.



Fortunalely it's not too difficult to switch on the bus. You don't need to remove the whole roof, only a 2x4 tile.

That is just mind blowing! It looks exactly like it, and here is cool part about this creation, you were able to make a motorized vehicle in mini-fig form and still have all the detail and yet it can still be motorized. Just brilliant! Great job :D

the bus looks awesome, full of character, I can see why it s your famous piece, the presentation with music is excellent, the technical side, + showing how you did it, super, and the stop motion was worth it, if just to see the impossible number of figs get inside, lol!

Very cool! I'm amazed that you've managed to cram in all the Power Functions components in such a small space, AND on top of that a whole row of minifigures! ;-) The funny video made me smile several times, and is well directed. Even though I normally dislike when people put stickers on LEGO, I make an exception this time. Well played, sir!

WOW 6 stud wide with Power Functions is really impressive! Well done. I like to squeeze as much as possible and still maintain the looks, but so far the smallest that I've gotten is a 11 stud wide Mini Cooper... do check it out! http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/326584 Good job on this one!!!

Fan-tas-tic, Gabor! To squeeze all this into such a good-looking model is really top-notch work, I like it a lot, it couldn't be done better! - Unfortunately the video can't be viewed in Germany because of the music, really a shame.

That's fantastic engineering, so many functions and so few space to include them all. And the models looks awesome, too. And then there is the film and ... and ... Great job! :-))

Thats a triumph of good design. By looking at the first picture I couldn't tell that it was full of motors and control box. I wouldn't know that those things could fit in there.

Excellent work as usual, I rally enjoy seeing these small scale RC vehicles. I think I like this even more than the RC DAF Truck! From the outside, aside rom the IR receiver, I couldn't tell that it was motorized! I'm not sure of how much of a chance it has on cuusoo though, even if it somehow gets the 10000 supporters.
