The Bug Runner
NEW from Llwyngwril Systems: an innovative high speed solution to all of your rough terrain personal transport problems!
About this creation


The Bug Runner was a highly practical solution to the problem of traversing the rough terrain of large construction sites. It was particularly effective in these situations, as there was generally a supply of ladders on site that would enable the driver to mount and dismount from his machine.

Llwyngwril Systems is getting ever more adventurous WRT alternative forms of locomotion! Can't wait to see what they come up with next. How about one to tiptoe gingerly across the vast Egg Fields of Zargon?

Quoting Henrik Jensen Yet another crazy walker! Those dangling legs really made me laugh out loud! Nice one David!
Thanks Henrik. Glad to have provoked some laughter!

Quoting Nils O. Yeah it really looks very cool! But from the technical point of view I don't understand the long legs. An elevated center of mass isn't good at all for an all-terrain vehicle, something George Lucas demonstrated very well with the AT-ATs in "Episode V" ;-). The AT-TEs from "Episode II" are a lot better from this point of view ... Anyway, Lego should be fun and your bug runner is fun! It just isn't easy for me to switch off my "engineer mode" ;-)) Great job! :-))
Thanks Nils. The engineer in me says that the bigger your legs are, the bigger the rubble is that you can step over :P I know what you mean about stability though. This model is very hard to stand up on its 6 slippery legs.

Quoting Stuart Lucas Ah, the joys of eccentric gears. You have to love those crazy kicking legs, fantastic!
Thanks Stuart. I'm hoping to discover a stronger camming system. That way I could make a motorised model, using this mechanism.

Quoting Daniel Calleri Some great detail - the little radar dish, the beacon and the feet. And you found a use for those angled yellow beams - impressive. A great small build.
Thanks Daniel. I really built this to experiment with the mechanism but I had to decorate it "properly". I know what you mean about these big, multi angled Technic lift arms. It is hard to find uses for them (apart from big, Technic models).

Quoting Werewolff . Yeah that beacon seems very important for all parking needs :) Another awesome, weird and charming build. The leg deign is especially nice and very practical for the driver. Nice!
Thanks Wolff. The leg design is very practical for the driver but it's absolutely lethal for anybody else nearby!

Itsy-bitsy Bug Runner! What a wonderful fun to see the video: Reminds me of a bug lying on it's back a crawling with it's feet to get upright! This one made a big smile on my face, David! :)))

Quoting Clayton Marchetti Great little Walker. I love the beacon on top so you can see where you parked. :-) I particularly like how you mounted the control panel. Very clever.
Thanks Clayton. I hadn't thought about finding it again when it's pared but you're right. it reminds me of when I used to do a lot of whitewater kayaking and had boat uprights permanently on my roofrack: you could find the car in any carpark!
