Cue TLCB debutant Christoph Ellermann, who has recreated the primary-coloured 1981 set for the modern Creator era. Gone is the Technic functionality, replaced by a more realistic aesthetic, and yet hidden inside is a full remote control drivetrain.
There’s more to see at Christoph’s photostream, plus you can check out the original set – and see just how far Technic tractors have come in four decades – via the links in the text above.
This is a Claas Arion 650 with Pottinger Ploughs. We have no idea what a Pottinger Plough is, but it sounds like either a British sandwich or something you might find in the karma sutra. Whatever it is, it looks great here, as built by previous bloggee Keko007, and there’s more to see at his ‘Claas Arion 650 with Pottinger Plows’ album.
This most excellent John Deere 6R tractor, complete with a big red plough, comes from Damian Z (aka Thietmaier), who has created it in rather wonderful detail considering the small scale. There are lots more images of both the tractor and plough to see on Flickr – take a look via the link above.
There have been three Mad Max movies to date, and with the latest re-ignition of the franchise promising a few more films to come our Elven workforce, whose second love after Megan Fox in Transformers is post-apocalyptic violence, are very excited. The Elf that discovered this photo is something of a hero amongst its colleagues today then, and it has also earned itself three meal tokens. We have seen a couple of these builds from Flickr’s Tim Inman aka rabidnovaracer before, but they look damn cool together don’t they? You can see more of his three Mad Max – Fury Road vehicles at his photostream via the link above.
Proof that you’d don’t need a million parts to build something great has never been so concrete. This marvellous miniature tractor by hajdekr was discovered on Flickr – click the link to see how it’s been done!
…that’s my name, that name again is Mr. Plough. Yeah, we’ve properly mashed up that Simpson’s reference, but we’re having a Matt Groening day here at TLCB (see this). Anyway, this tractor with plough attachment by Flickr’s Chris Maddison is one of the nicest farming devices we’ve seen in Lego. The background is something special too, but we’ll leave it to the proper Lego blogs to discuss. See the picture in full-size at the link above.
