We end today’s truck double with another magnificent remotely controlled cab-over truck and trailer combo, this time from the other side of the Atlantic where such set-ups are much more unusual.
This Kenworth K100 is one of relatively few American cab-overs, being apparently designed with only a ruler and a set-square, and it’s been recreated absolutely beautifully in Model Team form by previous bloggee Vladimir Drozd. Incredible attention to detail is visible everywhere on the outside, whilst Power Functions motors are hidden within to bring the creation to life.
It’s a model that is definitely worth a closer look and you can join us in doing just that at Vladimir’s Kenworth K100 Flickr album via the link above.
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.
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.
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.

Previous bloggee Maciej Drwiega makes his third appearance in three months here at The Lego Car Blog with this superb 1978 Kenworth K100C Cab-Over Flat-Top. Maciej is rapidly becoming one of the premier truck builders on Flickr, and you can see this and his previous creations via his photostream here.
The first Elf re-released after Christmas has stumbled back to the office, and what a find to re-start The Lego Car Blog it is! This huge Kenworth K100C Aerodyne truck is the work of Flickr’s Maciej Drwiega, and it’s one the best truck models we’ve ever seen. You can read the full description and check out all of the pictures here.
