Two Technic Trucks

two-trucks-01

A successful raiding party of Elves has returned from the Eurobricks forums with not one but two Technic lorries. First up is an RC Isuzu NPR from Shineyu. This little gem is a real contrast to the massive front loader from the same builder, which we featured earlier in the week. Fortunately its small size meant that there was nowhere near the same scale of Elf carnage as on Monday.

In the meantime, there was no Elf carnage at all caused by Razor‘s Scania R500 6×4, as his Power Functions pieces are deployed in another MOC. Nonetheless, this lorry looks great and takes advantage of some of the new Technic panels in blue to get a smooth cab. Click the links in the text to see more of each vehicle.

Long Load

Lego Scania R500

Dennis Bosman’s mighty Scania R500 with Broshuis extendable trailer has appeared here before, and he’s recently updated his build to reflect the unique way that long items can be transported in the Netherlands, with the load raised above the cab to reduce the overall vehicle length. It’s a seriously impressive piece of equipment, whether in real life or Lego form, and you can see more of the brick-built version on Flickr by clicking here.

Build Big

Lego Scania R500 Truck Menck M154

The ridiculously talented Dennis Bosman has featured here numerous times over the years (and is one of our original Master MOCers), and he’s recently re-visted one of his oldest builds. This incredible recreation of a Menck M154 dragline excavator was built by Dennis over 12 years ago, and it’s now been re-photographed atop his stunning Scania R500 truck complete with Faymonville low-loader trailer.

The beautifully built truck and trailer measure a combined 7ft in length, which gives some indication of just how massive the dragline is. You can see more of the Menck and the incredible details and functionality it contains by clicking this link to Dennis’ photostream, where you can also see the full gallery of his Scania R500 and low loader with a variety of awesome loads.

The Magnificent Seven Rides Again

Lego Caterham 7 R500

After featuring Carl Greatrix‘s Model Team Caterham 7 last month he’s boshed out another version. This time it’s the R500 and it looks better than ever.

Carl’s hoping his design will become an official set via the LEGO Ideas programme. He’s nearly half way to securing enough votes, so if you’d like to build your own Seven click the link above and give him your vote. It of course depends on Caterham playing ball with their licensing, but even if they say no there are another dozen or so little British companies making almost exactly the same car to choose from!

Massive Extension

Lego Scania Truck Combex

Dennis Bosman’s packing something huge! It’s very long and very hard, and luckily he’s got just the place to put it. You can see more of his excellent concrete beam transporting Scania R500 V8 and Broshuis extendable trailer on Flickr. Unless you’re visiting TLCB for the first time via a search engine and this isn’t what you were expecting at all…

Lego Scania Low Loader Truck

We’re only three days into the new year and the Elves have already found possibly the best vehicular MOC we’re likely to see. This astonishing build is the work of Dennis Bosman aka LegoTrucks, and it’s taken him over two years to complete.

Up front is a beautiful Scania R500 8×4/4 tractor unit, behind which is a Faymonville Megamax low loader trailer, giving a total vehicle length of an incredible 2.5 meters. The Megamax’s load is just as spectacular as the rig carrying it; an enormous vintage Menck M154 bucket excavator complete with boom extension.

Each model is a work of brilliance in its own right, and put them all together and you have one of the most realistic creations we’ve ever featured. To see all the photos of the Scania, the Megamax steered-trailer and the Menck excavator make sure you visit Dennis’ Flickr photostream via the link above, where you’ll also find images of the real truck, trailer and load combination that inspired this amazing build.
