    Hello, thank you for building the warthog, yes the transmission and steering are quite fragile, it is not made for rough surface or trial truck, because of the weigh. You can try to reinforce the transmission or the steering but I do not think it is possible to reach the offoad abilities of a lego trial truck.

    Hello! Congratulations on this model!

    I very much liked the detail and complexity of the build. I wanted to build this machine since the first time I saw it, and after waiting for several part orders I was finally able to start (a multi-color version of the vehicle).

    Building by photos was quite a challenge, but I finally made it! 🙂 My kids liked shooting the gun and actually the warthog can be a toy for two – one on the gun and one on the wheel.

    I was surprised, however, that, at least in my build, the steering is very fragile – the 1×6 links or the ball pins disconnect at almost the smallest obstacle the wheel meets. Have I missed something? It seems like a tougher version of the steering is needed.

    Also, the fragile steering and the engines without reductors make the locking diffs somewhat pointless. I am still to test the vehicle outdoors, but the warthog has hard time going through, for example, a sandal. It either stucks and neither wheel moves, or a pin says “clack” and flies away.

    I will try to figure out something, although I am pretty sure you’re way better than me in this.

    Best Regards,
    Vasil

    Hi,

    First, congratulation for a really great MOC: I wish I could achieve the same level of refinement!!!

    I built it first with parts of multiple colors (waiting for orders to arrive with black and lime parts… and I’ll redo it again 🙂 ) and I noticed few things :
    – few pictures are difficult to ‘read’ and sometimes the order is more adequate to dismantling than to mounting the kit. For instance, pictures from page 50 to 52 should probably come at page 46, before the second side of the structure is installed.
    – my main difficulty surprisingly came with the top part of the machine gun: difficult to guess the assembly there, and one more picture could do the job.
    – the 1×6 links should be without stoppers (2739a) since the articulation comes from the bottom at one end and from the top at the other end: the inventory in rebrickable mentions model 2739b with stoppers.
    – the “Axle and Pin Connector Hub with 2 Perpendicular Axles” (10197) are mentionned in the inventory as dark grey: they also exist in black, and would suit better here since they are visible.
    – the last step of adding bars on the side of the back pannels is not obvious: I missed it and I then realized once I compared my result with the picture. Here again, one mode picture may help.

    I am ready to help with picture in case it may help you improving further the biulding instructions: once again, this model is great and it deserves a top quality documentation !!!

    Best regards,
    Thierry

    Bonjour, Merci pour ton commentaire. Hélas oui comme la notice est prise en démontage ça occasionne des problèmes pour le remontage parfois, surtout lors de gros assemblage. J’en suis bien navré mais c’est le seul moyen que j’ai sinon je dois tout démonter et remonter dans l’ordre et ça prend vraiment trop de temps, temps que je préfère investir pour construire des choses. N’abandonne pas, la construction du warthog est très propre, quand tu auras fini le châssis, le reste c’est du détail, bon courage 🙂

    La réalisation est superbe mais franchement la séquence photos pour le monter est imbuvable… On a du mal à suivre les instructions et on passe son temps à faire/défaire puis refaire à nouveau. C’est au final long et fastidieux. J’en suis qu’à la moitié et j’y ai passé déjà plusieurs heures ! Je loue ton travail mais je crois que je vais abandonner.
    Merci en tout cas d’avoir proposé ces instructions, j’avais un peu de temps mais je pensais pas y consacrer tellement et je pourrai pas le finir. Tant pis pour moi ! Encore bravo en tout cas, c’est encore une superbe oeuvre de ta part !!

    Merci pour ton commentaire. Sur les photos, je n’ai pas fais de correction précise mais il y certaine photo sous ou surexposé par contre sur mon écran photo calibré, cela reste lisible, peut être ton contraste et trop ou pas assez élevé sur ton moniteur ? Pour le montage, comme c’est une notice de démontage remis à l’endroit, ça occasionne certain passage ardue. J’espère quand même que tu as apprécié le montage.

  9. c’est toujours avec beaucoup de plaisir que je fais tes Mocs. n’étant pas du tout amateur d’engins guerriers je veux tout de même te féliciter pour cet engin au point de vue technique. malheureusement avec la correction de contraste des photos les axes grises sont devenues pratiquement invisibles. ensuite les pieces des fotos page 51 devraient plutot etre montées page 37 et page 52 l’engrenage pour la direction est pratiquement invisible autant pour les corrections
