Much like its real-world counterpart, this rather wonderful remote controlled Volvo L120H by Eurobricks’ mpj is not a fast machine. A smaller version of Volvo’s wheel-loader in the 42030 Volvo L350F set, mpj’s L120H can do everything the official set can, including drive via an XL Motor, articulated steering via two Medium Motor-Powered linear actuators, arm raising/lowing via another two linear actuators driven by a Large Motor, and lastly the tipping of the bucket by a final Medium Motor.
An impressive roster of remote control functions then, which today’s discovering Elf deployed with moderate success. Unable to run over any of its colleagues thanks to the L120H’s slow speed, it drove its find into the Cage Room, up to a cage containing a sleeping Elf, and promptly tipped it out. Understandably unamused the awoken Elf remonstrated forcibly with its aggressor, who responded by simply stabbing it with the bucket, and then (very slowly) running it over. Job done.
We’ve taken the controls away now so there’ll be no more Elven violence (at least at the hands of the Volvo), and you can see more of mpj’s impressive machine at the Eurobricks forum. Click the link above to take a look.
