Indeed, ropes and strings are critical to many of the models from this era. Perhaps none less so than this one. :-)

LDCad can handle them of course, but they are fiddly and take a long time to build, at least if you're going for a great deal of accuracy. I've been working at things like pre-made knots and spools, etc., but I find that these differ almost with each different model. Wish there were a better way to automate them!

I agree that the flexible ropes and hoses have very important roles in these models.
I'm now learning the use of LDCad including building flexible parts, to migrate from MLCad getting out-of-date.
The knots and spools are so difficult for me currently (authoring patterned tiles or bricks is far easier than them!!),
but I'll try to create them beginning from an update for set 377.

You can create cap parts for things like common knots (if you don't want to model the knot itself, a sphere primitive can be a good approximation), and you could do the same with a single spool loop (or even a whole course of them, if you need a full spool). But I think it would be cool to have an automated spooling script, similar to how spring part meshes are generated.

Updated, with creating flexible hose by LSynth (Missing invisible knots).
I wonder how to make the hose thicker as a real part.

I use the LSynth LS60 segment in my own LDCad string template (it looks more like real string than the cylindrical donors that come with LDCad). You can easily scale them in X and Z to make the string thicker or thinner, by changing the rotation matrix in the path skin dialog.

Making a spring is not a very big issue (could probably be derived from https://www.ldraw.org/cgi-bin/ptdetail.c...181c01.dat), but where is it supposed to attach to the forklift parts???

The true question is - is there a spring??? Mechanism could simply rely on friction between 3430 and 3431... I see none on all photos I checked!

Yes, it has.
I remember having one as a kid and it was a lot of fun shooting stuff in the air with the fork. Smile

Yes... https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/cat...2#T=C&C=22
And advice in 3430 and so called "3429": 0 // Needs work: Spring attachment
I said so called because imho it's actually 3431!

It's definitely not the same spring.

70181 is from 1983 (for the newer, larger 73367 FORK-LIFT TRUCK), while 74603 FORK-LIFT TRUCK (the one being shown here) dates as far back as 1972.

Plus, I did some measurements for Philo at his request. Smile  

The older spring is actually of a larger diameter, and is shorter.

In addition to the spring, there are connection points missing from the platform and the standard for the spring to attach to.  I gave Philo some reference photos and suggestions (one could "cheat" and just use a cylinder at the top, even though the shape is more like a box with the top two edges rounded off. The peg on the platform is a lot more involved, if one wants to sweat the details.)

Philo is right, this is one of the oldest misnumberings in LDRAW.

3429 is unknown, but definitely not the FORK-LIFT PLATFORM, it should be 3431. (3430 is correct as the FORK-LIFT STANDARD)

Note: 3429 is also definitely not the spring; which would have a 6xxx or 7xxxx numbering, owing to the fact that it is metal.

Hello Takeshi,

Here is the string I made for this nice 670 set. I think it's not too bad... Hope you'll like it Smile

   


.mpd   670-1 - Mobile Crane.mpd (Size: 68.74 KB / Downloads: 9)

Made with LDCad the instructions found on JC Tchang's site about how to make a string with the LS60 LSynth part (inlined in the mpd). And quite some time playing with Bezier curves while taking a real-world knot as a reference...

You'll see I fixed three minor glitches, too:
- two 3020's were inverted among building steps
- the crane was vertically overlapping the truck by 8 LDUs
- the red block was lower than (invisible) ground

Finally I couldn't resist but put the stickers... but of course, thanks must go to yourself for having created two of those (BTW I'm impressed by the large numbers of stickers you submitted recently on the PT, great work !)

Hi Takeshi,

Nice sets of that era! Will be perfect with your corresponding stickers when they become official parts Smile
I fixed a small glitch in 1589, at the back of the office ground floor (one 3665a and one 3660 were misplaced, and one 3005 had become a 3004; plus corrected the building steps).

Here's the fixed file:

.mpd   1589 - Main Street.mpd (Size: 25.8 KB / Downloads: 6)

Another point I noticed is the alternation of the transparent 3010's / 3622's on the right part of the bus stop. The instructions scans available on the net are not optimal, but apparently they should be in the 3010/3622 and 3622/3010 order alternately (which seems confirmed by the photo overviews of the set). I didn't change that though, not sure of what you'll decide

Hello,

Here is sets 648 and 690.

I personnaly had the 690 during my childhood. Ldraw made me discover its ancestor the 648 Smile

Thanks to Takeshi for the recently added parts - u454 slanted signpost and 1955 Shell Logo !

For the 690 I had to create the 8x22 baseplate (inlined), which from what I understood only existed for this specific set. I named it u568 (it was previously referenced as x568), is this correct ?

Files are OMR compliant, except for the fact they use the three unofficial parts below, currently in ACCN state on the Part Tracker:
  • u454p01.dat
  • u454p02.dat
  • 3004pt8.dat

Yes, classic space sets are also very nice and I like them.
This set 381 was released before I was born (in 1983) and my first police station set is 6386, so I've built this first time on LDraw!
I think this set is very well-designed for action playing with minifigs, and broad possibility for alternative builds (no STAMPs used).

RE: 1970's - LEGOland and hobby sets
All these sets are really cool, especially when decorated with their dedicated stickers Smile

I noticed a few glitches here and there - nothing very important but I think would be better if they're fixed
  • sets 640-2 and 374-1: the Minifig airtank (3838.dat) should be 2 LDU lower
  • set 379-1 : the 3853 (windows frames) and 3855b (windows glasses) aren't correctly snapped together, on all 7 occurences
  • set 381-2 : the 3496c01 spout overlaps the 3660 underneath by 8 LDUs
  • set 646: according to the instructions, the 3829c01 steering wheel should be yellow
Some other notes:
  • If I believe rebrickable.com as well as the instructions visuals, many of these sets have 3062a's (with solid stud) rather than 3062b's (with hollow stud); apparently the latter wasn't produced before 1978 anyway. This is particularly noticeable on the main picture of instructions for set 672-1, for example.
  • On two sets (372 and 1620), some Minifig are standing in the gap between two pairs of studs (and are overlapping them). Not sure whether this was intended or not (especially for 372 where this permits the Minifig to be in the center of the watchtower) ?

By the way, has someone begun work on sets 361, 375, 585, 6371, 6375-2 ? I have them (in various non-finished-yet state, especially for stickers) on my hard disk Smile
