Back of the Bus

Lego Technic RC School Bus

It’s Valentines Day here at The Lego Car Blog Towers, but with only the Elves bringing us anything we may as well get straight down to some tenuously-linked Lego models!

This is ArsMan064‘s Technic school bus, which on the face of it has nothing to do with the day of love whatsoever, but the humble school bus has probably had more teenage bodily fluids secreted into it than any other vehicle. Gross.

It’s powered by a Medium Motor with a Servo for steering, and another Medium motor opens the cabin door electrically. There’s nifty leaf-sprung suspension and LED lights too. Relive your high-school conquests/regrets via Eurobricks at the link above.

Schooled

Lego Technic Remote Control School Bus

TLCB Elves are great fans of remotely controlled creations. If they’re large and/or fast enough they can even be used to smush unsuspecting co-workers.

Today’s Elf needs to go back to school though, as its find – paave‘s brilliant Technic school bus – is neither large nor fast. Unfortunately this meant that the group of Elves it was targeting heard the bus coming, jumped out of the way, overturned it in a rare moment of Elven cooperation, and then chased the controlling Elf out of the office. As your Mom would say, size matters.

Anyhoo, in this case it’s actually the creation’s diminutive size that makes it more impressive, as squeezed inside are a full remote control drivetrain and a working motorised door, all in a model that’s only about 10 studs wide.

You can see more of paave’s Technic school bus on MOCpages, Brickshelf, and Eurobricks, where there’s also a video showing the cunningness within.

It’s a Hard Knock Life

Lego Mad Max Post-Apoc School Bus

If the Elves went to school, this is what they’d ride in. This would be to ensure the safety of the community, but we have a feeling that they would love it too. Suggested by a reader, you can see more of James Cox’s post-apoc Mad Max-esque school (of hard knocks) bus on Flickr.

Today’s second Mad Max creation comes from Flickr’s Doctor Mobius for the LUGNuts ‘100 Way to Win’ challenge, and it’s… er, we’re not entirely sure. But we’ll trust him. He’s a doctor. See more here.

School’s Out

Lego School Bus

Here at TLCB Towers it’s half-term, meaning the roads are nicely devoid of the unnecessarily large SUVs that clog them up most mornings. What we need is a good school bus system, something that America’s got nailed. This Town example – suggested to us via the Feedback page – is the work of Nathan Proudlove. See more on Flickr at the link.

Walking on Sunshine

Lego Kamaz TruckSummer is finally starting to find its way to The Lego Car Blog Towers, and its imminent arrival has given the Elves a sunny disposition, resulting in a yellow day here at the blog. We like yellow, so on with the show!

First up is this splendid 1:16 scale Kamaz dropside truck. Built by DB_Kit Fisto, it’s one of the most brilliantly detailed vehicles we’ve blogged in a while. It features working suspension, Power Functions drive and Ackerman steering. And it’s very yellow.

Second up is something a little smaller. [Maks] is back with a mini-figure scale vehicle entitled ‘Yellow School Bus’. Which is exactly what it is. And it’s rather good too. Check it out on Flickr.
