Taking a Dump

This magnificent MAN F90 8×8 dump truck comes from previous bloggee Krzysztof Cytacki (aka dirtzonemaster) and it’s one of the finest Model Team creations of the year so far.

It’s not just accurate aesthetically either, as underneath the brilliantly realistic exterior is a complete remote control drivetrain consisting of eight-wheel-drive,  four-wheel-steering, and eight-wheel suspension. The tipper works too, thanks to a remotely operated linear actuator, with all of the Power Functions components hidden so well you would never know they’re there, with our particular favourite being the beautifully effective way Krzysztof has concealed the battery box inside the fuel tank.

You can see just how he’s done it (plus view all of the truck’s other features) via the link to Krzysztof’s ‘MAN F90 Tipper Truck’ album on Flickr above, and the YouTube video below.
