Surplus Photo!

Those of you with good memories may be familiar with today’s creation. It is of course the Army Surplus Special, one of the many Wacky Racers that fought it out for fame and glory in the 1968 Hanna-Barbera series. This wonderful homage to the Sergeant Blast and Private Meekley’s cartoon chariot first appeared here back in 2016, and builder Redfern1950s has recently re-photographed it for us thanks to the threat of a TLCB Elf armed with a sharpened pencil.

No, seriously, whilst Elves armed with pencils are a very real threat here in The Lego Car Blog office, Redfern has actually re-photographed his Surplus Six as he’s become the seventeenth elite builder to join the TLCB Master MOCer Hall of Fame!

You can read Redfern’s brilliant Lego-building journey via the link below, where a host of his other magnificent vehicles feature, and learn how he turns cartoons and caricatures into brick-built masterpieces!

Mystery Box

Lego DAF Army Truck

This Model Team style DAF army truck by Flickr’s Arian Janssens is a superbly built creation, packed with detail and abounding in clever techniques… but all we can focus on is that big green Box of Mystery chained to the trailer. What’s inside? Pirate gold? Proof of alien life? Hilary Clinton’s email server? See if you can work it out at Arian’s photostream – click the link above to investigate.

What’s in a wheel arch?

Lego Army truck

Andrew Somers’ Supply Truck

Well, a wheel usually. But in this case also one hell of a clever building technique. The Elves found this deeply cool Military Truck by Andrew Somers on MOCpages.

Hero of War

HumVee Desert

War. What is it good for?

Although LEGO’s ethics policy means no modern conflict sets are produced, there are plenty of peices that can be reappropriated for military use. Mak_s has done a superb job, creating this desert-spec HumVee and LVSR. Titled “Brothers in Arms”, it can be viewed on Flickr.
