This neat Liebherr PR776 bulldozer was found by one of our Elves today. Being small scale and unmotorised there was no smushing to be had, but it does look rather good, with great attention to detail and some inventive parts placement too. FLBRICKS of Flickr is is the builder behind it, making their TLCB debut, and there’s more to see at their photostream via the link.
With over four thousand pieces, seven electric motors, and the new Control+ bluetooth receiver, LEGO’s enormous 42100 Technic Liebherr R 9800 Control set is a great place to start if you want to build a B-Model. So much so that previous bloggee Eric Trax has actually built two. Following his Bobcat skid-steer loader that appeared here earlier in the year, Eric has constructed another alternate from only the pieces found within the 42100 set; this spectacular Liebherr PR776 bulldozer.
Packed full of working functionality including remote control drive, steering, accurate blade and ripper mechanisms and a highly detailed exterior you’d be hard-pressed to know that Eric’s ‘dozer is a B-Model. Best of all Eric has made his design ridiculously accessible if you own a 42100 set and you’d like to build it for yourself, with downloadable instructions, sticker sheet, and even a BuWizz profile that you can add straight to your own third-party BuWizz app to control it. There’s lots more to see of Eric’s incredible B-Model build at his ‘Liebherr PR776’ album on Flickr and the Eurobricks forum, where links to all of the above can be found – click the links in the text to take a look!
