If you haven’t figured it out yet, my current project is a Lego Sentry gun using the new (and might I add really cool) Nerf Stampede machine gun. Last weekend I spent about eight hours building the mobile base for it. I even ordered some needed parts from Bricklink before I knew whether or not it would work. I now know that it doesn’t work the way I currently have it built. I tried to give it enough power by putting two XL PF motors on each track, but that still isn’t enough. It moves fine going straight, but it won’t turn and every so often the track belts break.
I guess that is the price when you build big; your mistakes and rebuilds are big. But it looks really cool, so I thought I would show it off.
The focus of my blog is Lego and Lego Mindstorms. You’ll see lots of stuff here that is not made by or out of Lego. That doesn't mean that it isn't related. That’s my way of trying to inspire my readers to think about creations that don't have instructions written by Lego. I have a belief that if you are not stretching your mind, your imagination and your abilities you’re not accomplishing much at all.
