From the sophisticated beauty of yesterday’s post to… well, a big red truck. But what Damian Plesniak (aka damianple)’s Technic truck lacks in fancy Model Team detailing it more than makes up for with its superbly engineered working functions.
Underneath the blocky Renault Magnum-esque exterior lies a range of mechanical features, including a tilting cabin with suspended seats, a V6 piston engine, all-wheel suspension and a locking trailer hitch.
Damian’s creation also includes the obligatory remote control drive and steering courtesy of a brace of Power Functions motors, with a further two motors powering the lifting third axel and a clutch to disengage the drive to it when it’s raised.
There are lots more images of Damian’s remote control Technic truck to view at Brickshelf and Flickr, plus you can read more about the build and watch a video of the truck in action at the Eurobricks discussion forum here.
