MOC: Pallet/Container truck

Bonjour! It's Dakar here with my first 6-wide published MOC!

After purchasing my first copy of 3366 Satalite Launch Pad, I got a second copy at Target, on sale, and a copy of the Kingdom's polybag target parctice.

I then dumped the peices out, and built this: :laugh:

I tried to build it in the style of the newer city trucks, while still keeping an attractive colour scheme and incorporating the new swept-back windscreen. At first, I tried to build a missile truck, but the wheelbase was too short, and the peices did not fit the shape my imagination had perscribed. Enough jibber-jabber (I've always wanted to say that! :tongue: ) The truck is similar to a pick-up, but one that is still able to carry pallets. It can hold anything that is 6x6, so it could be modified to make a UPS/package truck.

The Red/whie/grey colour scheem is meant to be reminiscent of 7747 windmill transporter.

The pallet has on it: 4 panes of glass, a lamp, an apple crate,a computer, two propane tanks, a large fuel tank, and two bottles of champane.

Near the cabin is a refrigerated compratment, holding fruit, dairy, and other perishables (Not Removeable).

The driver, who accounts this blurry photo to his use of a polariod, in a snow! :tongue:

My personal favorite part of the build, the SNOT-180 rear bumper. No specific use, I just felt like adding it! :excited:

Thank you all for reading and showing your interest in this moc! If you like comment! Point out any issues theis has versus a real-world version. And thank you all for reading and the warm welcome I've received here at EB! :blush: And look for more town MOCs, coming soon!

Brick On,

Dakar

Not bad truck 'Dakar', orange lights on top....warning lights ? :wink:

What kind of real life vehicle is it based on ? (I always find it best to try and use the real world to inspire my Lego creating :wink: )

Still it's a great build out of the parts of a different style of vehicle....the true purpose of Lego to create and recreate something different - a huge :thumbup: to your creativity ! :classic:

Brick On Truck On 'Dakar' ! :classic:

It's meant to be something like this...

And yes, it seems that one too many an unwarry citizen has hat to go to emergency surgery due to falling pallets... :devil:

Very nice utility truck 'Dakar A'. I like it's styling, very sleek. It's a great alternative to the original set default_classic.gif

This MOC is made as a cross between the truck in my earlier post and this one:
