60075 Redux

We’ve featured a few models here at TLCB that have brought an old set into the new age, however Flickr’s Thomas Selander has kinda done the opposite, taking the 60075 set from 2015 and making it rather more classic, at least in using a 1960s-’70s Volvo F88 truck as inspiration for his tipper. It’s an excellent Town build and considerably slicker than the official set it emulates, and there’s more to see at the link.

Lego Volvo Truck

This beautiful Volvo F88 dropside truck is the work of the fantastically talented Thomas Graafland. Thomas is – believe it or not – a Teen Fan Of Lego, but such is the quality of his building we didn’t feel he needed the ‘Featured TFOL’ accolade (but you can claim it if you like Thomas!).

Underneath the Volvo’s impeccable red and yellow bodywork is a 6-cylinder engine, working solid-axle suspension, working steering and a two-speed gearbox. Thomas has uploaded a superb gallery of images to both Flickr and MOCpages. View all the photos via the links, whilst we very generously give a lucky Elf both a red and yellow Smartie. And possibly diabetes.
