    Hello, yes in deed, it would be more accurate to choose the 32999b as it exists in the official set. I will do 🙂

    Hi, when I compare this MOC (but also Model E) with the 42082 set on Rebrickable, it gives one difference: the MOCs have item 33299a whereas 42082 has 33299b. Based on the images (and most of the item number) they seem the same. Is that correct?

    Hello, thank you for your comment ! I copy past here the answer I have done to Mikko (unfortunately I have not seen its comment) : So if you battery is not tired, I advice you to check every gear to rotate freely and is braced correctly (which means rotate freely without too much tightened bush for instance). But also check the zero position of linear actuator, as they act in double, you need to have the same position of each when started, if not, they will force each other. Therefore, ensure you that both linear actuators are in the end stop at the same position. If you have trouble, disconnect the top connection of the linear actuator to the main arm, and rotate from 180° and test it again.
    For me, if the gearing work fine, the linear actuator are in the same end stop (you can test it with only one actuator if you want) and the battery and motor in good condition, there is no other way it could not work.
    Regarding the error note :
    Pg42 : not agree with this point, the switch work in only one way, you control the way of rotation by the lever on the top, not the battery box switch, it is in compliance with the free photo sequence (which is the reference)
    Pg52 : indeed ! I will correct that.
    Thanks you for bringing me to this , I will correct it !

    Hello, I am sorry to not having answer you, I think I had but maybe the comment was lost. So thank you for building my Model C. Indeed the free photo sequence is more challenging that the for sale one. Regarding the functioning of the fork, with good battery, it works very nice as shown in the video. So if you battery is not tired, I advice you to check every gear to rotate freely and is braced correctly (which means rotate freely without too much tightened bush for instance). But also check the zero position of linear actuator, as they act in double, you need to have the same position of each when started, if not, they will force each other.

If you have trouble, disconnect the top connection of the linear actuator to the main arm, and rotate from 180° and test it again.

    Hi Nico,
    Thank you for the great model. Unfortunatelly I hit the same problem as Mikko Kuusisto, the gearing of the main actuators is very stiff and regularly jam. I tried to tune and even rebuild this part but with no luck so far. Happens even when the forks are not loaded and regardless moving direction.
    Othervise it looks great, (the rest) works fine – I was especially surprised by the steering, expected to be the weak spot – and the building instructions are very good.

    Some notes:
    Pg. 42: the black beam (length 5) should be replaced by shorter (length 3). The original colide with electrical connecor on one side and with cable on other.
    Pg. 52 step 2: the red shaft (length 4) should be replaced by gray one (lengh 3) or pushed inside by at least half a brick – it later colides with main actuator.

    Hi!
    Really nice alternate model!
    My son just finished building this
    Only problen is that main 2 actuators are binding badly, maybe just too complex drivetrain?
    Otherwise real nice!

    I bought the Lego Crane 42082 a few weeks ago and saw afterwards that this model C was available: I just finished building it yesterday (after building model A of course): It’s such a beautiful piece of machinery, thank you Nico71 for this model and the free pictures! It’s sometimes challenging to build it without mistakes but overall it’s fun! I remarked one “error” in the picture (in addition to the one indicated in picture 589) but can’t remember it anymore 🙁
