Mystery Box

Lego MAN TGX Van der Vlist Truck

This is Dennis Bosman’s ‘Mystery Box’, and – unlike your Mom – he hasn’t published a single picture of what’s inside it on the internet. Evidence from Area 51? Kim Jong Un’s nukes? A copy of the final season of Game of Thrones? Whatever’s in there Dennis’s box is chained to an enormous ten axle Broshuis trailer pulled by a MAN TGX of unbelievable detail.

The MAN truck wears the livery of ‘Van der Vlist’ courtesy of superb custom decals, and rides – like the trailer – on non-Lego metal wheels. Underneath the spectacularly detailed tilting cab is a working 6-cylinder piston engine and a full remote control drivetrain, operable via bluetooth thanks to a third-party SBrick.

The axles of the huge Broshuis trailer steer too, with four Servo Motors providing the power, with each axle’s wheels turning at a different ratio. It’s a magnificent build – possibly one of the finest of the year – and there’s much more to see at Dennis’ MAN TGX Flickr album here, plus you can read our interview with Dennis as part of the Master MOCers series by clicking here.

Old ‘n Orange

Lego Scania LK141 Truck

This amazing orange behemoth is a Scania LK141, and it comes from truck-building extraordinaire (and TLCB Master MOCer) Dennis Bosman aka legotrucks.

With one of the finest chassis/engines we’ve ever seen created from LEGO bricks underneath its beautifully-detailed tilting cab, custom chrome pieces, and a fully-kitted interior, Dennis’ classic LK141 is a shining example how good Lego models can be.

Head over to Flickr to view the complete gallery of stunning images by clicking here, and to view an alternative image of something old ‘n orange click here (caution advised).

Hauling Bricks

Lego FTF F8.8.20D Truck

This incredible model is a classic FTF F8.8.20D, recreated perfectly in bricks for hauling… bricks. The strange-looking yellow device mounted in the rear allows heavy loads to be unloaded swiftly and the model is packed with a vast amount of other authentic detailing.

Lego FTF F8.8.20D Truck

TLCB Master MOCer Dennis Bosman is the builder behind it, having recently updated his model with LEGO’s latest parts. A large gallery of stunning imagery is available to view on Flickr, and you can read our interview with Dennis revealing how he builds his amazing models such as this one by clicking here.

Multiple Loads

Lego Scania T143H Bulk Carrier

Nope, not your Dad’s browsing history but this, Dennis Bosman’s incredible Scania T143H bulk hauler, with not one but two enormous tilting hauler bodies behind the cab. Based on a 1994 Scania T143H used in Nieuwveen, the Netherlands, a truck which racked up over 2,300,000kms in seventeen years of service, Dennis’ model replicates every aspect of the real truck, including an wonderfully accurate recreation of the original livery.

Lego Scania T143H Bulk Carrier

Both tilting bodies are operational, powered by an XL Motor hidden within the truck unit (with a power-take-off for the trailer) and a linear actuator mounted underneath each tipper. The truck itself is also remote controlled, with both drive and steering operable via a bluetooth device thanks to a third-party SBrick bluetooth receiver.

There’s a lot more to see of Dennis’ stunning Scania T143H on Flickr, where you can also see images of the real truck on which his model is based. Head over to the Scania’s album by clicking here, and you can read our interview with the builder as part of our Master MOCers series by clicking here too.

Kenworth Kaizen

Lego Kenworth K100 Wrecker

Kaizen. The philosophy of continual small improvements first pioneered in Japan by Toyota, is now a worldwide business practice. And thanks to the inherent characteristics of the LEGO brick, it’s a process that builders can apply too.

First featured on this site way back in 2013, Dennis Bosman (aka LegoTrucks) has recently updated his stunning Kenowrth K100 wrecker with a myriad of small improvements.

Lego Kenworth K100 Wrecker

From grey to chrome, standard to dark green, and studs to smooth, LEGO’s continual product development has allowed Dennis to take advantage of an expanding variety of bricks to refresh his beautiful Model Team Kenworth wrecker.

There’s more to see on Flickr, and you can check out our interview with Dennis as part of the Master MOCers series by clicking here.

Seventies Scania

Lego Scania LBS141

This stunning model is a near perfect replica of one of the most powerful trucks of the 1970s, the 375bhp V8-powered Scania LBS141.

Built by Master MOCer Dennis Bosman aka LegoTrucks it’s very probably one of the most accurate recreations of a real-world vehicle that this site has ever featured; there are even parts of this build where offsets are less than half-a-stud in width. Much like a bumblebee shouldn’t – by all mathematic calculations – be able to fly, we’re pretty sure that an offset of less than half-a-stud is an impossibility too, but nevertheless Dennis has confounded the maths.

There’s lots more to see of this incredible creation at Dennis’ photostream, which is packed full of exquisite models such as this. Click the link above to gaze in wonder, and you can read more about the builder via Season 1 of our Master MOCer series here.

Long Load

Lego Scania R500

Dennis Bosman’s mighty Scania R500 with Broshuis extendable trailer has appeared here before, and he’s recently updated his build to reflect the unique way that long items can be transported in the Netherlands, with the load raised above the cab to reduce the overall vehicle length. It’s a seriously impressive piece of equipment, whether in real life or Lego form, and you can see more of the brick-built version on Flickr by clicking here.

Build Big

Lego Scania R500 Truck Menck M154

The ridiculously talented Dennis Bosman has featured here numerous times over the years (and is one of our original Master MOCers), and he’s recently re-visted one of his oldest builds. This incredible recreation of a Menck M154 dragline excavator was built by Dennis over 12 years ago, and it’s now been re-photographed atop his stunning Scania R500 truck complete with Faymonville low-loader trailer.

The beautifully built truck and trailer measure a combined 7ft in length, which gives some indication of just how massive the dragline is. You can see more of the Menck and the incredible details and functionality it contains by clicking this link to Dennis’ photostream, where you can also see the full gallery of his Scania R500 and low loader with a variety of awesome loads.

Former Yugoslav Republic Of

Lego Volvo NL12 Truck

This beautiful Volvo NL12 long-nose truck comes from Master MOCer Dennis Bosman (aka Lego Trucks).

As with all Dennis’ builds the Volvo’s detailing is spectacular, but it’s the paint job that excited the Elves – yellow and red meant two Smarties for the lucky finder. To us it looks like it was inspired by the country of Macedonia*, who probably have – if you’re an Elf – the best flag of any nation.

You can see more of Dennis’ truck at his photostream via the link above, and you can read about his Lego story in TLCB’s Master MOCers series.

Massive Extension

Lego Scania Truck Combex

Dennis Bosman’s packing something huge! It’s very long and very hard, and luckily he’s got just the place to put it. You can see more of his excellent concrete beam transporting Scania R500 V8 and Broshuis extendable trailer on Flickr. Unless you’re visiting TLCB for the first time via a search engine and this isn’t what you were expecting at all…

American English

Lego Kenworth Wrecker

One of TLCB’s favourite builders, the brilliant Dennis Bosman, is back, and his latest astounding model is already lining up to win ‘Best Truck of 2014’.

Dennis took a trip to see the company that owns the real version of this Kenworth K100E Aerodyne, who are oddly enough based in the UK. American trucks are a rarity on European roads and NYR imported their Kenworth K100E from the US especially for their recovery fleet. The cab and chassis were then fitted with a monster Century Rotator 1140, which Dennis has recreated in truly incredible detail.

Dennis has published an extensive gallery to coincide with the completion of this model, including close ups, shots of the Century Rotator in action, and photographs of the real UK-based wrecker at his Flickr photostream. Head there now to join us in our amazement by clicking the link above.

Dennis has also become The Lego Car Blog’s seventh ‘Master MOCer’, joining the six previous elite builders that make up the exclusive Master MOCers club.

Double Trouble

Lego Double Trouble Hot Rod

Every man’s dream is to have a front heavy ride, if you know what we mean. Flickr’s Dennis Bosman aka LegoTrucks has taken the same approach to his latest build by inserting two ridiculously enormous twin-supercharged V8 engines into the front of his Hot Rod. Entitled ‘Double Trouble’ the driver sure looks like he’s having a good time sitting behind that massive pair. See all the photos on Flickr via the link above, and add your double-entendres to the comments!

Lego Scania Low Loader Truck

We’re only three days into the new year and the Elves have already found possibly the best vehicular MOC we’re likely to see. This astonishing build is the work of Dennis Bosman aka LegoTrucks, and it’s taken him over two years to complete.

Up front is a beautiful Scania R500 8×4/4 tractor unit, behind which is a Faymonville Megamax low loader trailer, giving a total vehicle length of an incredible 2.5 meters. The Megamax’s load is just as spectacular as the rig carrying it; an enormous vintage Menck M154 bucket excavator complete with boom extension.

Each model is a work of brilliance in its own right, and put them all together and you have one of the most realistic creations we’ve ever featured. To see all the photos of the Scania, the Megamax steered-trailer and the Menck excavator make sure you visit Dennis’ Flickr photostream via the link above, where you’ll also find images of the real truck, trailer and load combination that inspired this amazing build.

Motorway Maintenance

Lego Scania TruckWe’re kicking off the week here at TLCB with some big creations. First up is this colossal Scania R124G complete with low-lowder trailer and excavator. Built by Dennis Bosman aka ‘legotrucks’ you can see more of the rig here. Next is one of the more unusual vehicles that we’ve featured, but without which all the others here would have nowhere to drive. They’re a pair of grader/scrapers, used for removing old tarmac before new is laid. Suggested to us via the Feedback and Submission Suggestions page they’ve been built by bricklington on Brickshelf, and you can see the full gallery via the link above.

Potato Puller

Lego Scania 143 TruckThe collaboration continues between two of the world’s most talented Lego truck builders. This incredible Scania 143 truck, previously featured here at TLCB, is the work of BricksonWheels on Flickr. His equally talented compatriot, Dennis Bosman, a prolific truck builder in his own right, adds a perfectly suited Bulthuis Potato trailer to complete the rig.

We’re delighted to announce that we recently bagged an interview with BricksonWheels, who becomes the second builder in our Master MOCer Series. Click here to read his story, or visit the ‘Interviews’ tab on the homepage menu.
