The Lego Car Blog Elves like laying little pipes, but if they’re not laid in their cage room there is serious trouble. A few members of TLCB staff walk around the office bare-foot and there has been much anger directed at our Eleven workforce in the past for corridor mishaps.
Anyway, now that we’ve got mythical poo out the way we can move on to this – Makorol‘s brilliant Liebherr RL 64 pipe-layer. Both beautifully detailed and expertly engineered, Makorol’s creation not only looks superb but it functions near-perfectly too.
A suite of LEGO’s versatile Power Functions motors power the Liebherr’s drive, steering, winches, boom and counterweight movement, all controlled remotely via two IR receivers mounted within the body.
A full gallery of high-quality images is available to view at Makorol’s Flickr photostream via the link above, plus you can see the Liebherr pipe-layer in action in the excellent video below, which is complete with creator commentary.
