This is a MAN TGS 8x4 in classic Model Team scale 1:25.

It is remotely controlled using Power Functions. The drum turns independent of everything else. There are PF lights both in the front and back, so a lot of wires had to be hidden:

The doors can open, slide be turned and the seats are adjustable.

The battery box can be replaced by a white canister for display/GBC mode.

What do you mean you build slowly? :wink:

Very nice, as always. I particularly like the drum.

This is my son love, cement trucks (no idea why default_cry_happy.gif ), if would be wonderful if you could make building instructions for this.

Are you willing?

I am also willing to invest money in this (payable via paypal).

Thanks,

Noam

It has been about a year since last time I presented a truck. I would call that slow. This truck alone took 2 months to build.

The problem with instructions is that they still take a lot of time to make, and I mostly receive negative feedback from them. I prefer to value looks over durability, so I get a lot of complaints about stability (and even more of "where can I buy parts?"). It typically takes me about a year to finish building instructions for a small truck because I only build virtually during travel.

More than the one?

The idea of using it as a GBC module is just brilliant and on top of that it looks and moves really cool. :thumbup:

Great looking model!

I also love the fact that it can be used as a GBC module.

Including remote controlled and rotating drum just lifts this above and beyond a normal LEGO Moc, well done mate.

Awesome job Lasse D, to cram so many functions into such a tidy, good-looking package, that's amazing. :wub:

Wow Lasse, this is great! Great color, modeling (especially the stripes on the mixer) and functions. The fact that it doubles as a GBC module makes this double-WIN!

Amazing.

You should seriously consider making some instructions... I'd build it! :tongue:

Nice. Probably the best functions I have seen in a MOC. Lots of nice detail. :thumbup: :thumbup:

Awesome build! I love the detail of the truck, the back, front, and the drum! Color scheme is beautiful, too. Look forward to seeing more amazing designs from you! :-) :thumbup:
