My Other Truck’s a Scania

It’s time for another B-Model here at The Lego Car Blog, and we rather like these (as evidenced in Lock-Down B-Model Competition that ran here earlier in the year). B-Models are exactly what LEGO is all about, using pieces in an infinite number of ways to create Something New.

This Something New comes from mpj of Eurobricks, who has repurposed the parts from the 42098 Technic Car Transporter set to create this brilliant Scania Next Generation truck and flatbed trailer.

Looking (we think) better than the set on which it’s derived, mpj’s alternate includes a working V8 engine underneath the tilting cab, ‘Hand of God’ steering, opening doors, and a working fifth wheel that controls the trailer’s two steering axles.

It’s an excellent showcase for how you can build more than what’s on the box, and you can recreate this Scania yourself as mpj has made building instructions available. Head to Eurobricks via the link above for full details!
