Knight Bus MOC

Post by brickie on Tue 30 Aug 2011, 10:36 am

For years I have wanted to move my Harry Potter Knight Bus.

I purchased a Power Function car chassis last year and I have diligently been collecting purple bricks ever since; the Zurg set from Toy Story was a good source [ especially when they were on clearance for $12 ].

I have finished the Mk 1 version. It is 8 x 26 studs and used up a huge pile of purple.

A short video can be found @

Awesome work. Does the Power functions car chassis work like a remote control or does it just go in the direction you send it in (in the video it goes around).

Thanks Anita.

The PF car chassis comes out of 8183-1 Track Turbo RC and it works great with a PF IR speed controller.

You can steer as well as accelerate but it is hard with a camera in one hand.

The knight bus is a little hard to control as the IR receiver is hidden on the ground floor.

Control is still possible when the controller is low to the ground.
