So, recently TLG released a contest through the LEGO Club magazine. I have entered a few of these before, and had just visited Legoland FL. On the way, I saw a LOT of 18 wheelers carrying oranges. So, before I knew it, I had half the cabin of a truck infront of me! :laugh: The lower front SNOT section was pretty tough to wiggle in, but I fits well, if a little snugly!

The cabin is based off set 3221, Lego City truck. I decided to build it in white because I didn't have enough parts in red or grey! :tongue: The real challenge was deicing how to do the trailer. I connected it using a larger rotating platform, since a smaller one wouldn't have been able to handle the stresses on the trailer. The whole thing is a monster, taking up ove 40 studs in Length! *oh2*

The road was built mostly for show, but it ended up using just about all of my black bricks that weren't already in use!

I kept trying to get a good shot of it on the road platform, but since I hadn't curved it, it just didn't work out. :cry_sad:

I can't seem to find any reference pictures, but trust me, they exist!
