I was hoping to get this done sooner, but some of the parts took a while to arrive. They're here now, so it's all done.

I also have to say that this the most awkward build I've had to do.

Let's begin:
20170609 201417 by IHave2MuchFreeTime 20170609 201833 by IHave2MuchFreeTime 20170609 202707 by IHave2MuchFreeTime20170609 203457 by IHave2MuchFreeTime
We'll start with the lower section. The baseplate is 48x48, and the first two walls are 1x2x5 panels, with 20 on one side, and 19 on the other. Next is the start of the Technic frame, then filling in the walls. The gap is there for a reason.

20170620 175924 by IHave2MuchFreeTime 20170609 204020 by IHave2MuchFreeTime 20170620 180053 by IHave2MuchFreeTime 20170620 180739 by IHave2MuchFreeTime 20170620 180841 by IHave2MuchFreeTime20170620 181945 by IHave2MuchFreeTime
Now the top of the Technic frame, made entirely of 6x8 and 4x6 (and pins, of course), and then come 24 7-beams, 23 of which have pins in each end. The empty one, and two pinned ones are used to attach a 16-long Technic brick, which slots into the gap left on the bottom. A couple of Technic bricks and a 2x2 brick are used to fill in the frame, and the remaining 7-beams are used to attach the top and the bottom together.

20170620 183128 by IHave2MuchFreeTime 20170620 183433 by IHave2MuchFreeTime 20170620 184956 by IHave2MuchFreeTime 20170620 191003 by IHave2MuchFreeTime20170620 192900 by IHave2MuchFreeTime
Next is the floor. The underfloor is four 16x16 plates, 9 8x8 plates, and some 1-stud wide plates to fill in the gaps. With the floor, I started with the plates for the walls, then the lines for the CPZ and Flame Pit, then filled in the CPZ and the bit between them, and then the area around it the edge to finish it off.

Finally, the walls. First, I did the outer half of the walls, then the slopes for the inner walls, then the beams for the lexan panels on top, and then adding the panels, ending with:

The only thing left to do is attach it to the frame:

I considered putting this off, as the next part (the flipper) is a virtually identical build, so I considered doing the two parts in one write-up, but after putting this one together, I decided to do them separately, as I'll be putting it together differently because I don't want to repeat this experience.

Current Progress (According to my BrickLink Wanted Lists)
Frame: 100%
Flame Pit: 100%
Flipper: 9%
Pit: 9%
Spikes: 10%

LEGO Thunderbird 4 - Thunderbirds Are Go
Whilst the image is a render, there is actually a fully built LEGO model of this, it's just that I won't have access to it til September. The real one is on display at the Head of Steam museum in Darlington, and you can see some images of it on the Brick Alley LUG Facebook page.

LDD Model

Also, the LEGO Robot Wars models are on display there as well. I should also say that some of the robots in that image haven't appeared in on TV yet, so if you're avoiding spoilers, don't click on it. And here is a closer look at the robot in the top right corner, for those curious.

So, I'm finally getting round to do this. I've been planning this for a while, and all my orders have arrived, so let's start with the
frame for the arena.

We'll begin with the centre section:
20170527 121640 by IHave2MuchFreeTime 20170527 122105 by IHave2MuchFreeTime 20170527 122224 by IHave2MuchFreeTime
Everything in this model has a Technic superstructure, to make it more stable, and to make it easier to go together. It allows it to be built in parts, so it's easier to move around, and it doesn't balloon outwards quickly, so I have more room to work with.

Next, the arms of the frame:
20170527 122437 by IHave2MuchFreeTime 20170527 122807 by IHave2MuchFreeTime 20170527 122905 by IHave2MuchFreeTime 20170527 123424 by IHave2MuchFreeTime
A 40-stud long backbone, extended to 41-studs long with the two Technic bricks at the front. These have Technic corners attached to hold the Technic beams on, and then the plates for the floor are attached, along with hooks for the entry gates.

Next, do this again three more times:
20170527 125915 by IHave2MuchFreeTime

The next step is the floor and gates:
20170527 132259 by IHave2MuchFreeTime 20170527 132746 by IHave2MuchFreeTime 20170527 132915 by IHave2MuchFreeTime
Three of them are the same, so we'll start with them. The starting arrows start 24-studs from the entry gate. The parts that remain uncovered will be filled in at the very end. Next is the entry gate, which are 5-studs tall, not including the bars to attach it to the frame. Once attached, they'll stay up with friction alone, but I added some support just to be sure.

These are now ready to be attached to the centre section:
20170527 133235 by IHave2MuchFreeTime

Now for the final arm:
20170527 134312 by IHave2MuchFreeTime 20170527 134838 by IHave2MuchFreeTime 20170527 134941 by IHave2MuchFreeTime 20170527 135303 by IHave2MuchFreeTime 20170527 135414 by IHave2MuchFreeTime
This one is different to accommodate the pit tyre, and the Doom Dail. The first six studs along are different, with two 1x3 plates for attaching the pit tyre to. The Doom Dial is built in a similar way to the entry gates, and attaches the same way. Finally, the pit tyre is a 1x16 brick and some slope pieces, with an axle brick to hold the tyre. Now it's ready to be attached to the rest of the frame:
20170527 135511 by IHave2MuchFreeTime


Now it's time to finish it off. All that's left to add is the mosaic, and to fill in the floor around it. I started with the dark grey, but it doesn't really matter in which order they're done:
20170527 142317 by IHave2MuchFreeTime 20170527 142937 by IHave2MuchFreeTime

Untitled by IHave2MuchFreeTime
And that's the frame done.

These updates will be sporadic, as it takes time to save up the money to order parts, and then for the orders to arrive. Plus, I have to put them together, which takes time, and so does my job, which may mean I might not be able to assemble things straight away. The only timeframe I'm working to really is to get the whole thing finished by November, and hopefully, I'm on track for that.

Current Progress (According to my BrickLink Wanted Lists)
Frame: 100%
Flame Pit: 12%
Flipper: 5%
Pit: 8%
Spikes: 8%

Next part should be the Flame Pit section.
LEGO Robots by IHave2MuchFreeTime

This was all the LEGO robots I was working on at the moment, and now they're all finished.

Question: How do you get the part to make your robots?

For all the models I've built so far, all the pieces are either spares, or taken from other sets I own. In future, I'm going to be ordering pieces from Pick-a-Brick and BrickLink, so I don't have to take anything apart, and because I don't have all the pieces I'd need for some of the models.
