MOC: MOW Vechicle

3 posts in this topic

So I received 2 3179s (City repair truck) for my birthday from different people last year. I had them both in different parts of my city but I thought one could be made into a MOW vehicle. I had already MOD'd one of them, reworking the storage boxes and cherry picker so I decided to MOD it some more. This week I picked up 2 7936s, mainly for the track and the parts I figured I needed for my new vehicle.

The first challenge was to add the train wheels to my truck. To do this I raised the entire truck one plate to allow room for the train wheels to fit under the bumpers when in the up position. I also had to modify both bumpers to make room. I swapped out the cherry picker for the crane arm. With the exception of a couple of plates this is built entirely from the original two sets.

Here it is with the crane arm deployed

You can see I replaced the cheeseslopes with plates on the front bumper. This gives just the smidge of space needed when the wheels are up. I put those cheese slopes on the roof to serve as a holding place for the crane are when it is not deployed.

The rear view. I made the rear bumper only one stud high. I also pushed it out a brick to make it flush with the back of the truck box.
