DAF Double

Lego DAF FAW CF 530 8X4

Our American readers may not be familiar with DAF trucks, but in Europe they’re everywhere, pulling everything from dump trailers to tankers. We have one of each today, from Arian Janssens (above) and Biczzz (below), each being wonderfully detailed and each pulling an equally well-built trailer too. See more of both builds via the links above.

Lego Panda

Be in no doubt, the Chinese are coming. We may be laughing at their products now, but it wasn’t so long ago the West was doing the same to Japanese and Korean car manufacturers. This FAW (First Auto Works) CA1010 with, er… a heavily armed panda in the back, is the work of Bad furday on Flickr.

We think you’ll start seeing FAW and/or their Chinese rivals in Western dealerships within 5 years, with or without militant bears. Another 5 years after that Ford, GM, Toyota, Honda and the rest will likely be very worried indeed…
