How to: Miniature Elevator System!
Hello and welcome! Due to the amazing response I had to my carrier (I'm still in shock!) I have decided to post one of the prototypes of an elevator system out to the world! Its much more simple, so really, no one should be confused! Okay, lets go <del>class</del> my fellow MOCcers!
About this creation
First off, let me apologize for the small size(s) of the pictures; I had to do a really long and convoluted system of, well, stuff, to get it all to work, so its a bit tiny. I might sooner or later (no promises, I mean, who am I?!) try and post some larger pictures, but for now....


So this is very simple. Don't worry, if your a bit, behind, I will explain some. You see, when designing the carrier, I knew I needed an elevator system. This was the first idea I had. I eventually dropped it, as I found it too cumbersome, and quite, friction-y (I'm taking Pre Ap English In my second Term of high school!)


Yeah, I think this is self explanatory, but basically, its just clips, running on LEGO rails.


Not much to say here. Other than maybe, if you plan on using this, then a little bit of credit, yada-yada-nada.


And, if you are so boring inclined, you can SNOT it up (no, no! Best be putting that nose away from my parts!)

Anyways, thanks for watching! I do intend to get larger pictures soon (its on a separate computer, and its just not worthy of being explained), but I just started High School (took some shaving cream to the knee, 'cause, you know, Freshmen!) so activity from me will peak as it is now; which isn't high. I'll try to keep up, but, you know.....

Finally, check me out on Flickr! I have already posted a behind the scenes of Prasad Heavy Industries (showing off my supply yards) and you'll probably see some stuff over there that might not make MOCpages (don't feel sorry for the pictures; some just don't follow the rules!)

pretty neat! sometimes friction is helpful to stabilise, it s a good thing.

That does look friction-tastic! I'm wasn't a bit surprised by the reaction to your carrier - it's awesome work and that kind of thing always gets recognized.

Ldd and bl make it cheaper possible.

Quoting Locutus 666 This seems to be a good way to bring in some real moving elevators to 1/700 scale carriers. maybe I shall try if its possible to add this system to one of my 1/700 carriers.
Yeah, I figured you might be interested in this system. Its pretty easy to build and use; not too many parts either. Probably could pick up all the parts you need from a mid-sized Star Wars set.

That's an interesting design, it could be useful for some non-motorized/mechanized systems. For gear driven systems I typically prefer gear racks since they're pretty simple and easy to integrate compactly into a system.

Good stuff, my elevator system for carriers is quite similar, but instead of bars it uses brick slots kind of thin, i guess, for deck edge elevators ofcourse
