Flickr’s Havoc is having an awesome run blending classic Model Team sets with real-world vehicles. Following in the footsteps (hah!) of his 5541-inspired T-Bucket and his 5510-derived Jeep Renegade comes this, a reworking of the 5561 Big Foot monster truck set from 1997.
The original set wasn’t really a monster truck (or anything like the real Big Foot for that matter) but it was rather cool, and Havoc has chosen to carry over its paint-job onto a vehicle far more in keeping with the real Ford pick-up based car-crushing monster truck.
Havoc’s ‘Big Foot’ uses a Ford F-250 as its base (like the real truck), but switches the famous blue livery for the red-on-white that many Model Team sets have used over the years. Head to Havoc’s photostream to see all the images, plus you can view his past builds and see the official LEGO set that inspired this one via the links in the text above.
