This magnificent slice of brown brilliance is the latest work of one of our very favourite builders, published author and TLCB Master MOCer Dennis Glaasker aka Bricksonwheels.
It’s a 1:13 scale Peterbilt 379 truck, beautifully chromed, and pulling a matching Polar tank trailer, and as has come to be expected from Dennis, it is quite simply one of the most exquisitely detailed Lego models that you will ever see.
Dennis has gone one step further this time though, and has teamed his incredible building skills with third-party Lego light specialists Brickstuff, who have wired in hundreds of LEDs to bring the truck and trailer to life.
The whole project has taken 5 months to reach completion and is powered by a hidden battery whilst the lighting sequences are controlled by a custom multi-channel remote control.
There’s a whole lot more to see at Dennis’ superb photo gallery, including – of course – several stunning images showing what a few hundred expertly-integrated LEDs can do. Click this link to make the jump to see all the photos Flickr.
