About this creation
Sisu NA-110 is (according to Wikipedia) articulated all-terrain transport that is mostly used in the Finnish Army. I have few personal experiences with this machine fron my own military time. "Teka" or "rickety-rack-box" is rather nice vehicle that moves in the Finnish forest quite nicely smashing bushes and small trees as it goes.
Last year I built TT-75 (WIP threads here and here) which was my first "better" TECHNIC creation. While it was rather OK for me, it's slowness and few technical details made me mad. I decided that my next TECHNIC creations should be fast, agile and "fool proof". I first tried to make a small rally car but the scale I chose proved to be wrong choice: I simply didn't have space for proper inner workings...
Well, after rally car/Eagle 3 went back to drawing board, I wanted to try something else. Our LUGs first public show at Model Expo 2009 was coming along quickly and I chose to complete my creation by then. After watching some old pictures at my Flickr-account, I noticed the picture I took from real "tekas". Teka's design looked rather straight-forward and most importantly, it had inner space to fit Power Functions-parts inside. After few R&D weeks, I was making the creation quickly and I was able to complete before the Expo.
Front wagon has two medium PF-motors and linear actuator inside. You can see the linear actuator from the windows.
Rear wagon has PF IR-reciever built inside it (under the battery box). This proved to be bad choice as the reciever sometimes takes false readings from the battery. Also, the IR-sender has to be behind the vehicle when driven.
The steering assembly provides very realistic steering. Medium PF-motor runs linear actuator which then moves the lime 1x2 TECHNIC beam. Beam is connected to "steering stick" which, when moved, forces the rear wagon to move as well (better picture of the steering assembly here).
Thanks to the towballs used in the middle, NA-110 can move very well in tight spots like these.

Fantastic i absolute love it can you send instruction ?
if yes send to Martinguldbrandt@gmail.com
thankyou very much :)
As this creation is already quite old and it has been scrapped to bricks many, many months ago, I can't really remember how I built it. That makes it really hard for me to make instructions to it. It's not that I wouldn't like to help, I love helping people with LEGO related questions, it's just that I can't re-create the creation in instruction form since I can't remember it so well...
If you have some more specific questions, I am happy to help you with those!
