About this creation
After some time of inactivity I am happy to post a creation again. Although it is about half a year ago that I posted a creation, this truck did not take 6 months to build. I was a little busier with school this half year than usual and I ended up not MOCing so much. Add to that that a couple of creations ended up as failures and I ended up being a little inactive a here on MOcpages. I am here with a creation however and I plan on being more active the coming weeks, although I am going on a vacation soon.
This truck took me actually only 4 weeks to build, which is a unusually high building speed for me. A BIG inspiration was this truck. The first plan was to build this truck, but due to lack of pictures of it and lack of yellow bricks in my collection, I decided to go for a more simple truck.

Some specs:

1/17

Length: 59 studs (48 cm.)
Width: 18 studs (14,5 cm.)
Hight: 21/22 studs (17 cm.)
1,43 kg.

Functions:
- Front & rear solid axle suspension
- Steering
- Inline 6 engine
- 2 speed gearbox
- Opening doors
- Tiltable cabin

The steering is coupled to the red tank on the right side of the truck and the gears are changed via a small lever underneath/inside the fuel tank on the left side of the truck.
Engine design from Senator Chinchilla.

Quoting Vibor Cavor This is great. You could have worked on the wheels design but the truck itself is pretty accurate and looking great!
I have to agree that I could've done something on the wheels. I must say that I had completely forgotten putting anything on it.

Truly a beautiful truck! Excellent color choice, on the dark background the red and yellow color scheme appears really bright.. And all the details, fenders, bumpers and truckbed is pleasing the eye. Excellent Work!

I agree with Sam, it's not often that you can use the word beautiful to describe a truck! Magnificent work Thomas, one of your best builds to date.

Beautiful work. And I don't say that about a huge lorry much. Very clean, with great details!
