Skip This

Trucks such as this one always seem to have fancy names when LEGO produce them. Not at this blog though, where they are simply known as a ‘skip lorry’, seeing as they’re a lorry with an, er… skip. Said skip is usually full of an old bathroom, ripped out of an old lady’s bungalow when the new owners moved in, and all the junk from the neighbourhood lobbed into it by every house within walking distance whilst it was on the road.

Previous bloggee Damjan97PL/damianPLE’s fully RC Technic skip lorry is so realistic we’re surprised it doesn’t come with an old lady’s bathroom in the skip on the back to be honest, but besides that rather glaring omission he’s nailed it.

An SBrick provides bluetooth control for the motorised drive, four-wheel steering, raising/lowering rear axle (with automatic steering detachment when raised), and the skip loading arm, whilst there’s also a working six-cylinder engine underneath the tilting cabin, manually operated stabiliser legs and functioning suspension too.

There’s more of Damain’s remote control skip lorry to see at both the Eurobricks forum and at his Bricksafe gallery – click the links to chuck your rubbish on top of an old lady’s bathroom.
