Two hundred Lego pieces. It isn’t a lot is it? Especially if you’re aiming to build a functional Technic model.
Lego fan site Eurobricks has set the challenge of using just two hundred elements to create a whole new Lego Technic set. Here at The Lego Car Blog Towers we use two hundred bricks every time we build a steering rack, because we’re a bit rubbish, so we’re not really qualified to enter. Thankfully the interweb contains far more talented builders than us, and here are two such prudent engineers.
First up (above) is previous bloggee Jorgeopesi with his two hundred piece mini Technic front loader. He’s used the meagre parts count to produce a raising and tipping bucket, hand-of-God steering system and even pendular suspension on the rear axel. See more of his excellent mini front loader on Brickshelf via the link above.
Our second two hundred piece Technic model comes from fellow Brickshelf user Nikolyakov (also on MOCpages), and he’s also taken the machinery route. Nikolyakov’s mini combine harvester features a raising and lowering harvesting head – which also spins when the wheels are turned, hand-of-God steering, and posable unloading pipes. You can see more of his mini combine via the links above, and you can check out the rules, prizes and other entries in the Eurobricks two hundred piece challenge by visiting the Eurobricks site here.
