After the success of Tuesday’s titles, we couldn’t think of a better name for this post featuring Gabor Horvath’s “Tow Truck from Johnny English”. As well as being a good representation of a Metropolitan Police Vehicle Removal Unit lorry, this build has a high degree of “workingness”. Everything is remote controlled, including the speed, steering and outrigger legs. Once you’re in position, you can rotate and extend the crane’s arm to hook up that illegally parked car. You can see more photos and technical design details on Gabor’s MOCpages page or his Flickr photostream. Gabor shows off his truck’s functions in this nicely humourous video, complete with some custom built figures.
