LEGO Set Highlight: 850 Fork-Lift Truck
850 Fork-Lift Truck was released 1977, and contained 210 pieces. It came with 5 other sets that composed the first wave of LEGO Technic sets. Although for the next 20 years Technic vehicles were built with basic Technic bricks, the year 1998 saw a switch from Technic bricks to Technic Liftarms and Panels; the style with which this little set was built would no longer be produced again. Still, the Fork-Lift Truck helped pioneer features (such as gears and steering) that would remain in Technic sets for many years to come.
MOC: 1955 Ford Fairlane Victoria
Cruise the streets with style in the highly-detailed, minifigure-scale 1955 Ford Fairlane Victoria! This old-fashioned classic from the 50’s was a member of Ford’s brand-new line of vehicles: the Fairlane models, produced to keep up with Chevrolet’s new and very popular Bel Air automobile. The Fairlane cars were the first Ford vehicles to feature optional seatbelts, factory-installed air conditioners, and panoramic windshields.
This brick-built version has everything a car lover could ask for: chrome bumpers and grille, opening doors, accurate color styling, smooth design from the front to the back, roomy interior with a steering wheel and gauges, and (coming soon) opening trunk. The complex building techniques employed in this model account for its near-perfect recreation of the original using 182 parts. The entire model is 17 studs long, 6 2/3 studs wide, and 4 bricks high.

MOC: Stringer’s Ultra Mech
Also known as the “Brain Buster”, this machine was created for a 2013 Hero Factory contest. As evil brain-controlled creatures roamed Makuhero City, LEGO fans were called upon to created a viable defense for the heroes. Dissatisfied with the lack of an appearance from Jimi Stringer in the LEGO sets released in the year, Brickster_Tim decided to give him the part he deserved by making him a giant, four-legged machine.

MOC: CTH (Car-to-Helicopter) Craft
“I don’t remember which contest this was made for; but whatever it was, I created this one-of-a-kind vehicle as a flying car with foldout tail fin, wings which folded upward and became a spinning rotor, big engines, and an opening cockpit. I eventually used this same idea to build a similar Technic vehicle.” – Brickster_Tim
MOC: Police Helicopter Carrier
Here is a massive police vehicle with lots of futuristic features, including blue-tipped laser blasters! It also has tank treads, giant wheels, and (of course) helicopter bay. With three pilots (two for the carrier, one for the heli-‘cop’-ter), two officers, and two classic LEGO crooks, this rumbling tank was created for a LEGO police contest many years ago.
