An updated version of my Scania V8, now with new colours, more accessories, and updated design.
About this creation
When i finished the first Scania a while ago, I was happy with the technical aspects of it, but the outcome was a bit too red, and some commented that also correctly. Browsing through my big collection of truckshow pictures I found inspiration for a complete rebuild.
The first step was to remove the cabin and change the colours of the chassis a bit. The edges of the frontfenders were changed to black together with the rear fenders. The boxes were removed and replaced with new ones with a new design with doors that hinge horizontally instead of vertically.
The rearbumper was fully removed and made place for a newly designed rear session colourtrimmed to the rest of the chassis and a bit chrome off course. The coverplate for the chassis was added with colour accents to fit the rest of the design.
The cabin itself was dismantled to change the lower section completely with new colours. The inspiration for the new colours came from the Eurotruck scene, and is mainly inspired by the Scanias of Belgian Ronny Ceusters. The cabin was altered to a Highline type, with the rearskirts removed to show the exhausts.
All in all about 1000 plus bricks were changed and many new features were added.
And some family pictures together with the Peterbilt 379 'Radically Topless'.
Thnxs for the comments. I do not have a lot of work in progress pictures. But on my Flickr page you can see some more shots that reveil a bit of the chassis itself.
Sometimes i sell some chromeparts, you can find me on Bricklink, username 'Peterbilt'.
Very nice work mate! you're even getting better and better. I didn't have the chance to review your latest MOCs, I was (and still) very busy with two jobs, I wish I could build again like I used to :( Though I'll try my best, I have half MOC done, I hope to find the time to complete it. See you soon my friend and sorry for the disconnection with you and with all of my friends around the LEGO community. Peace.. Firas.
