Scania r560 V8 'Black Pearl' . Scania R560 V8 black Pearl 1:16 scaled PF driven truck. . More than a year ago I did a first attempt on a Truck that would radiate the look of some of the 25 meter long Scandinavian road trains. This model was inspired by Finnish company Ristimaa, who runs a small fleet of beautiful Scania’s and Volvo’s. After Lego Fanwelt 2012 I took it apart and made long term plans for a fresh one. For the first time I used rather big stickers and there was room for improvement. So a few months ago I started work on a completely new build, another Scania, as I had none left of the newer types in my collection at the moment. The R560 V8 unit is including 2 engines for steering and drive, and remotely steerable. The scale is roughly 1:16. The cabin and bulbar are tiltable, and all is fully detailed, including V8 engine. When watching a ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ movie the idea rose to make the artwork on this theme together with the ambition to set the overall detail level to yet another level upwards. Now airbrushing Lego is not easy, it might be even impossible, at least for me it is. I took the Photoshop path to work around my lack of talent with the airbrush pistol. I think there is as many hours in the photo editing work, as in building the truck and trailer itself, with the trailer stickers moving up to working with 36 layers before merging. A friend of mine printed them industrially, and my wife applied them, as she has much more patience with that type of job then me. A few hundred bricks were chromed by the ‘plating on plastics’ industrial technology. Th8s model can be soon during the Legoworld event in The Netherlands 17-10 / 23-10 2013 : www.legoworld.nl/ Dutch Lowlug will be hosting a 400 sqm booth, with their best work. Here are some stats: Scania R560 V8 1:16 Total brickamount: approx. 8000 Weight: approx. 8 kg Total length: 1.53 meters Total width: 16 cm Building time: 3 – 4 months
