Red Recovery Vehicle
A Recovery Vehicle. It's RED
About this creation
So I got board, and built a recovery vehicle.


It's bright red. For some reason, I found a box that I hadn't sorted that just had red parts. huge amounts of red.

So, the left side. It's left-tacular. Left-o-rific. I have had very little sleep in the past week.

The unexciting rear. I designed this thing based on the polar vehicles from the opening of National Treasure (the first one, which was good, not the second one), and the Recovery Vehicle from Thunderbirds. Thunderbirds was my childhood.

Right side. It's got a door! And a rather purposeless hook attached to the side there. Why did I put that hook there? Can anyone answer the question?

Front. Headlights, because a recovery vehicle without headlights would be...stupid. It also features a winch. I like winches. The grill is purely decorative, since the engine couldn't possibly be there. Come to think of it, there isn't any logical place the engine could be. Hmm. Ok, it runs on plotivium.

Look at that winch. Ever notice how older sets had more winches that newer sets? Jack Stone was great for winches.

See, there's another winch, because winches!

A walkie-talkie clipped to the side of the vehicle. Never has it been more clear that this is a brilliant idea. All cars should have outdated walkie-talkies attached to there side. That will solve the world's problems. The economy will stabilize when vehicles come with attached walkie-talkies. There will be no hunger when vehicles come with attached walkie-talkies.

A fuel-tool unit. It may not be the most functional design, but it looks great. Well, I think it looks great. In context

Yet another hook. This one's affixed to a chain. That makes it special. Not only does it have a much shorter reach, it's also much more difficult to put away. Therefore, chain is brilliant

More tools. Well, a hammer and a pickaxe. Because those are precisely the things you need to repair a vehicle. Yes. Exactly the thing you need.

The tray. It's like a giant ute!

The door, again. It's thinner than my usual doors. Minifigs aren't actually thin enough to be normal humans. Their arms are too wide, and really they should only be about three studs wide.

This door opens up. Upwards-opening-doors-from-the-eighties FTW!

Differing focus on the same shot.

The interior. It smells like fresh cars everywhere. It fits a grand total of....Four people! A vehicle this size, and it still only fits for minifigs. Because fat figs

The driver's station. Set to the left side. Becasue Americans designed this vehicle. Most of my vehicles have the driver's compartment on the right or in the middle. But this one, this one has the driver's compartment set on the left, so that the door is set on the right. Maybe I should make a version to send out to countries that put their cars on the correct side of the road.

Suspension! I finally managed to put some decent suspension on a vehicle I built. I'm so very happy. It's springy and spongy

Lot's of suspension

A modular crane is optional. FOr when you really need to kill that spider

It deploys in the manner that all cranes do, everywhere. Crane

It's brilliant for picking up debris, ships, and captains

And then the vehicle drives off into the distance, looking dramatic as the closing theme plays.

Cue closing theme music....


6th Surface:
It's a recovery vehicle. It's red.

I love great mocs like these. Possibly switching out the white hubcaps for grey halfwide ones would allow you to greeble inside the tires a bit though, which could make a nice detail. ~Rajskil ~Not Sidron. He's afk.

Quoting David Roberts I like the colour scheme and the suspension. The multiple winches and crane are great too: loads of playability. A good looking and fun build.
