Remote controlled model of Morgan 3-wheeler in 1:91 scale.
About this creation
When I've seen photos of this car for a first time, I decided to do a LEGO model.
It took me some time to actually sit and do that :).
I decided to build it as studles construction, what actually didn't work well, as I miss many bricks. Effectively I had to use few "old" bricks and whole construction is not very stiff.
From technical point of view it was not very difficult model to be done.
I was afraid the chain is not strong enough to transfer XL engine torque to the rear wheel, but finally it is working pretty good. It didn't break even once.
My biggest problem was to built it to scale and to show main body shape so it can be recognized. It was a huge problem as I do not have a lot of bricks in one colour.
Initially I wanted to do full independent suspension, but it didn't work well (block I built to fix the wheels on, caused friction to the steering arm and turning was not possible).
Effectively I stiffened the suspension and shock absorbers are only for visual purposes now :).
So, few technical parameters:
Scale - approx. 1:91
Length - 387mm
Width - 205mm
Height - 140mm
Drive - 1 no. XL Motor (Gear ratio increased - 1.875:1)
Steering - 1 no. M Motor (with RTC block)
Front lights working when driving
Easy removable battery box
Working engine pistons
Rear wheel cover can be opened
Photos are coming first.
Naked construction :)
I know the body has lots of holes and cockpit is moved slightly to the rear comparing to original, but it is the best I could do with bricks I have.
Magnificant! I wanted to use those technic-bricks for a model once in a time by myself ( for an Eurocopter); its very great to see such an significant result of an morgan threewheeler.
You caught the spirit of this era very well, and also i like dark green on oldtimers, i am convinced, yellow looks also great. Perfect shaping ( holes are to be neglected) and superior development. I kneel down.
Very cool! I'm working on a Morgan Three Wheeler myself, but you beat me to it! Would've look much better in dark green (or at least regular green - the yellow looks bad on this in my opinion), but still, it's a very cool MOC! ~LB Jr.
