Scania R730 V8
My first build of 2011 is this Scania R730 V8. It is a so called 6x2 tractor with retractable rear axle. The whole thing is in scale 1:13 and is build to haul one of the showtrucks I made earlier on a flatbed, which I am still working on at the moment. It will be one big combo.
About this creation


My first build of 2011 is this Scania R730 V8. It is a so called 6x2 tractor with retractable rear axle. The whole thing is in scale 1:13 and is build to haul one of the showtrucks I made earlier on a flatbed, which I am still working on at the moment. It will be one big combo.



This truck has nothing to do with the two R series Scania’s I made last year. It is a completely new build where I have put extra emphasis once more on detail.



The chassis is on scale from original Scania chassisdrawings. The engine is detailed with chromed parts with special stacks and sidepipes with are actuated with a special valve. Attched to the chassis are the Dieseltanks, batteries and airfilter. These are covered with so called ‘Danish Boxes’ which have gullwing style covers for fuelling and maintenance.



The differentials and axles are in place and also the airsuspension is in place. The airsystem is replicated by oldskool Lego tyres from the seventies. More oldskool are the wheels which where chromed for better looks. I guess these are the only 24x43 wheels in the world that are truly metallised chromed!



The cabin is filled with accessories. It is a highline cabin with aerokit and low topspoiler. The grille and doors can be opened, and the cabin can be tilted. The interior is a replica of the many custom interiors that you would see at truckmeetings. They are often tan-leather combinations, and this I tried to create in Legos too.
All in all a great truck to build, as I love Scania’s.

Beautiful. Is this entirely from scratch or did you start using the base of a set? Well done.

If there is anything you know how to do it's trucks! It's a win. I don't want to highlight any particular details since all of them are great. From afar it looks as real as the real truck.

At first I thought it was an actual model, but when you look closly you can see it's made out of LEGO. Awesome detail in this with so much chrome, I love it! Great job

This is so sweet. I was just telling my buddy 'there's this one guy on MOC that does semi trucks. He's amazing.' So much chrome too. Where you get those parts? It's so slick.
