Jonathan Elliott’s latest vehicle is large, heavy, and can handle a lot of wood. Just like your Mom. It’s a Mercedes-Benz Unimog U1700, fitted with a Hiab crane, stabiliser legs, and grabby-claw-thingy, enabling it to pluck felled logs from the ground for transport.
Jonathan’s model captures the real deal in beautiful detail, despite being only six(ish) studs in width, and there’s more to see of his brilliantly presented Lego lumberjack on Flickr – click here here to make the jump.
The Elves love finding models of Mercedes-Benz’s ubiquitous Unimog. Firstly, the models are usually packed with working features. Damian Z.’s has a very nice Hiab crane mounted behind its cab. Secondly, the models are often built in orange, meaning that the lucky finder is rewarded with an orange Smartie, which are the best sort.
