Here you can see my new build truck. I wanted to make a basic truck which I can customize. This time I added a lowboy trailer equipped with e jeep trolly.
I did put allot of effort in the looks of the truck. Making it stud-less and hole-less (which is a common problem with technic creations). But I do need some functions in the truck to.
Functions of the truck are:
Hand of god steering;
Working V6 engine, powered by the rear wheels;
Straight rear axles with suspension;
Independent front suspension;
Cabin can flip open;
Cabin is equipped with shock absorbers.
When the truck was finished, I needed something to add on it. First I was thinking to make a garbage truck out of it. This is going to happen later. I did want to make a lowboy trailer first. But then again I wanted it to be something more special, so I made a jeep dolly for it.
Functions of the trailer are:
Jeep dolly with a 5th wheel;
When turning the jeep dolly, the rear wheels steer in the opposite direction so the total combination can go around corners very smoothly;
Ramps can move up and down.
Things I put on the trailer to transport are:
R/C tracks with full suspension (a never finished half track project)
All round excellence. It's such a complete model: great looking truck with sprung cab (!) and smart interior, great trailer with rear wheel steering (which in the past I thought would be great to attempt and you've done it perfectly). Really nice.
Excellent stuff. You've made a good looking Technic truck, and also added some great Technic features (the sprung cab is my favourite). An all round brilliant Technic Model - it could easily be a set. 10/10
Brilliant!! I love the look of the front of the truck!! The shock absorbers for the cabin are excellent!!! The interior looks very sweet too!
The trailer is just AMAZING!!!! I like how the rear wheels steer too!
The overal vehicle is fantastic!!! 5/5 =D
