Lego Liebherr LTM 1090 4.1 Crane Sarens

That’s how long it took builder Dirk Klijn to design, engineer and construct this utterly spellbinding Sarens-liveried Liebherr LTM 1090 4.1 crane, in full road configuration with boom extension and 14 tons of counterweight.

Seventeen working motorised functions are controlled by no less than five third-party SBrick devices, making the Liebherr one of the most advanced Lego models that this site had ever featured, and if that wasn’t enough the model also features all-wheel suspension, a manually folding boom jib and two highly detailed accessible cabins.

Dirk’s model is also one of the most visually realistic creations we’ve ever found too, with a wealth of superb detailing further enhanced by custom decals produced by previous bloggee JaapTechnic, and full LED lighting.

A suitably large gallery of stunning imagery is available to view now at Dirk’s Flickr photostream – click this link to jump to Liebherr LTM 1090 4.1’s full album – we’ll see you there.

Mercedes-Benz Actros Heavy Haul – Picture Special

Lego Mercedes-Benz Actros

Featuring two Mercedes-Benz Actros 8×4 trucks, a Nooteboom steered-trailer and a Volkswagen Transporter, this heavy haulage team is very probably the most impressive multi-model build of the year.

The complete set has been designed and built by the immensely talented Jaap Technic, and each vehicle is one of the most astonishingly well detailed Lego creations that we’ve ever published.

Each Mercedes-Benz Actros truck includes a fully detailed cab inside and out, with the interior reached through opening doors and the V8 engine accessed via a tilting cabin.

Twin XL Motors power the trucks’ driven wheels whilst a Servo Motor turns the front two steering axels of each tractor unit, plus there are working LED lights front and rear, all controlled by a third-party SBrick bluetooth-compatible receiver.

The Volkswagen Transporter convoy support van isn’t left out either, with a trick Brickstuff sourced working light-bar and custom decals throughout.

Jaap has photographed the complete haulage team beautifully and we highly recommend taking a look. Click here to see the full gallery on Flickr and here to read further details of the build and join the discussion on Eurobricks.

On Location

Lego VW Transporter Convoy

Lego models photographed on location look the business. This stunning Mercedes-Benz Actros with Nooteboom trailer and its Volkswagen Transporter escort vehicle have appeared here previously as part of a builder collaboration.

Flickr’s JaapTechnic has since completed his elements of that original set-up by adding fully working lights and high-quality decals to his models. The latest images place the convoy into a real world setting, and the results are spectacular. Click here to see all of the new images at Jaap’s photostream.

Convoi Exceptionnel Picture Special

 Lego Crane Transport Truck

There’s a very fat Elf somewhere in the office today. Fat because it legitimately earned – and spent – four meal tokens in one go.

Flickr’s Barry Bosman (aka Barman76), Dirk Klein, Lifting Bricks and TLCB debutant JaapTechnic have caused the temporary obesity through their wonderful quartet of complimenting creations; JaapTechnic’s huge Mercedes-Benz heavy haulage truck, Dirk Klein’s mobile crane load upon Lifting Bricks’ Noteboom trailer  and, our favourite, a simply brilliant Volkswagen Transporter escort vehicle by JaapTechnic. Each is a work of art and all are available to view at Barman76’s photostream via the link to Flickr above.
