Story of this model : This project started as a commissioned project for Sercel in 2020, and was produced in 6 quantities for displaying in their showroom and being used in exhibition / training. In 2024, after some demands, I have created the PDF building instructions which were one of the biggest ever done. 


How to build ?

You only need the parts and the instructions :

📕 You can purchase the PDF instructions on this shop and build with your own parts, which included also a tutorial to set up the Control profile on the LEGO App. You will need to have a compatible smartphone, and installing the LEGO PoweredUp App (Ios, Android).

🧩 Partlist is available on Rebrickable or in the instructions preview below. About 35% of the inventory is shared with the 42100 LEGO Technic set, which is a good donor set to build it (white parts, gear and grey connector, electronics), and explains why some pins are red (originally from in the 42100).

🔰 If you want to add stickers on the model, you can download and print this file (A4, 100% zoom), or contact Forwart Sticker to buy the professional sheet.
