Claas Xerion

Following my soft spot for cutting edge farming machines in terms of design and functions I made an adaption of the Claas Xerion. This one was built in addition to the John Deere Forwarder I presented previously.

The challenge was to make it minifig-suitable, that means quite small. In addition I wanted to incorporate the rotating cabin.

In addition here are the break down shots if you would like to build your own version or just see how the construction looks like.

LC-01

Another robot adaption from Ghost in the Shell. This one is from the Arise series. The original is called a Logicoma, which derives from Logistics Conveyer Machine. The challenge was to make the robot minifig size, while being able to fully retract as seen on screen.

I have a full gallery of breakdown shots if you are interested. Shoot me a mail for details.

John Deere Forwarder

You might already know that I have a soft spot for state of the art land machines. The first machine I saw when I was about 10 years old was a Mercedes Benz tractor MB 1000. I really liked the unconventional and stylish design.
When doing the brick thing I came across the John Deere Forwarder back in 2010 and made a brick version. Now I managed to make some better photos alongside an interactive digital 360° view for anyone interested.
