Huwbot Building Tips (and modifications)
After Huw shared building instructions for Huwbot
, I wanted to create a place where everyone could share tips and advice on building him. Feel free to share photos of your Huwbots here as well!
Here are some tips I saw from official sources:
- Huw: "The part number for the long axles is incorrect in the instructions. It should be 3707, the 8l version, not 7l." (corrected in .xml wanted list file) (source)
- Eero Okkonen: "Couple of tips: It might be easier to connect the hub caps (boat studs) to the TECHNIC bushing first and then connecting them to the 8l axles." (source)
- Eero: "Also, by rotating the torso 180 degrees from the instructions, as Huw did, makes the colour blocks on the flanks line up as on the category bar on the top of this site. Probably should be that way originally." (same source as above)
- Huw: "The wheels [of the recent Wooden Duck set] include a red 4x4 round plate with hole in the middle which is new in this set. (They'd be ideal for Huwbot's head!)" (source)
Speaking of tips, I made a slightly modified version of Huwbot that, among other things, strengthens the connection of the neck to the head. I'll share the details in the following post..
