Renault MAGNUM truck
This is a "old school" Technic truck, made from the pieces of the 8860 and 8865.
About this creation



This is my first MOC since I rediscovered Lego. Made from the the pieces of the 8860 and 8865 models (yes I kept them off course).
Features :

  • independent front suspension (8865),

  • solid suspended rear axle,

  • Old school Six in-line engine (but all pistons next to each other, with no walls in between them (so whole length of the engine is 14 studs),

  • Hand-of-god steering (spare tire) but,

  • also steering wheel turns,

  • Cabin is also suspended,

  • Special locking system for a trailer.


There are three angles in this creation. Horizontal : locking system, angle two : the chassis, angle three : the cabin.

I still don't know why it is in parts now, since now I only build with new style. Please comment!!

Hi Joost. Your ideas sound great. I cant wait to see how you make it. Take all the time you need there is no rush. I am not going to complete my transporter any time soon - I need your technic skills to complete the ramp mechanism. It is going to take a little longer than 1 hr ;) I didnít notice the engine on this truck Ė very clever. I wanted to use old school pistons for my straight 6 but they were too big. I wish I had thought of this. I am really enjoying using old technic again. But I still love the new style.

Quoting MortalSwordsman . I do have 8860 (not 8060 - my mistake). In fact it was my second set (when i was very young) I must have made it 100 times. Remember the rear suspension? Completely useless but still one of my favs. I want 8865. Are you aware of the silver champion (8458). Very similar to the Williams F1 (i have that too) but has a second model - a race truck. I bet you would love this set. I need to make more technic mocs but for some reason I am only building in basic at the moment. Happy building. :).
8860 is my first technic. Others came from my brother. Nick Barret did great things with that model. I do love the Silver Champion, I always tought it was a American alternate for the Williams (because there they are not so into F1?) And i think in that set there is a helmet? and not in the F1)ANyway never saw it in Belgium but wasn't looking for it either. Nowadays I regret I didn't bought the same scale Ferrari F1.

Lovely old school model. Love the spare wheel hog steering - I have also used this technique (spare wheel steering) in the past and plan to do the same with my 4x4. This type of model reminds me of my youth :) I do have 8860 (not 8060 - my mistake). In fact it was my second set (when i was very young) I must have made it 100 times. Remember the rear suspension?

Nice work! I don't build in technic and I don't build trucks either but your truck is great and you build very accurate technic vehicles. Keep up the great work

Quoting Nick Barrett Great way to use these two brilliant sets.. it looks pretty accurate and I'm intrigued by your cylinder-wall-less engine. Does it turn smoothly ?
In my memories : I think it did it just fine. I'll recreate this engine as soon as I find some spare time, and I 'll post some pics then. PS : I am really honoured I'm one of your favorit builders, I truly find your work much more advanced.
