Tips Welcome

We like workhorsey-type vehicles here at The Lego Car Blog. This is perhaps because, whilst we frequently blog Ferraris and Lamborghinis, we’re rather far removed from those in the real world; this writer’s current vehicle is an office chair held together by duct tape.

Cue mpj’s excellent little Iveco Eurocargo tipper truck, which is about as unpretentious a Technic model as it’s possible to get. No motors, no bluetooth remote control, no V12 engine. Just mechanical steering, a tipping load bed operated by hand-turning an axle, and dropping sides so the load can tip out. Marvellous.

It’d make a fine official Technic set, and there’s more to see at mpj’s ‘Iveco Eurocargo Tipper Truck’ gallery on Brickshelf. Click the link above for a good tip.

To the Rescue

Lego Iveco Fire Truck

Things quickly escalated from today’s earlier post, and – after a few Elves had been rounded up – we may have attempted to jump a Power Functions powered LEGO off-road vehicle over some them.

By ‘we may have’ we actually mean ‘ we definitely did’, and by ‘a few’ we should probably say ‘a few too many’.

Luckily, although the model in question landed quite violently onto several of our too-trusting workers, this neat Town-scale Iveco Fire & Rescue Truck with rear mounted crane by Flickr’s Smigol was on hand to scoop up those squashed.

Don’t worry, it didn’t really – it is only Lego after all. We used a spatular.

You can see more of Smigol’s excellent Iveco EuroCargo emergency response vehicle at the link above – click the link to make the jump.
