Ugly Zukker

Lego Technic FSC Zuk Truck

After a few deeply cool and exotic vehicles TLCB has returned to its place in the automotive gutter, a spot we seem to inhabit rather frequently. This is an FSC Zuk van, and it’s hideous in every way. It comes – as most vehicles of this type seem to – from behind the Iron Curtain, and was produced using leftover bits of FSO and GAZ vehicles from 1958, when it was probably a passable purchase, until a scarcely believable 1998. Yay communism. Thankfully after the fall of the Soviet Union the Zuk died a relatively quick death, but with over half a million units produced many can still be seen in its native Poland.

This Technic recreation of the communistical horror-show isn’t hideous at all though, and features some most excellent engineering, including remote control drive and steering, opening doors, and working suspension. Previous bloggee damianple is the builder and there are more images available on Brickshelf – click the link above to see the full gallery.

    This is crafty, simple boring. But what looks to be a good build though.
