[REVIEW] 8848 - Power Truck
Posted 21 February 2008 - 05:22 PM
Reminder: this is my first review and english is kind of a foreign language to me, so be kind! Thanks! *sweet*
Okay, that's what we're talking 'bout:
#1. The Box:
Open with parts:
Styrofoam! Thatís luxury, isnít it?
#2. The instruction booklet:
Easy AND difficult to read. Much better than the old TECHNIC instruction booklets but more difficult than the new ones.
And at the end we can find some beginner models, in which the main functions can be understood!
The first step is the dumping scoop and the dumping bed.
The car base with the differential and steering.
The first tricky part: Not that easy as it seemsÖ!
Now you can see how the dumping bed will be elevated.
Steering and the lifting-mechanism for the dumping scoop is complete. (Iíve made a little building-mistake. Maybe you can spot it.)
Now the chassis and the wheel cases (?) are finished, the dumping bed has been added.
The driver cabin.
And ďnoĒ: these are new hinge plates. I never saw an old hinge plate in real life.
The finished model. If you want to now how it works, visit Technopedia! (A really great site btw!)
I hope you enjoyed it and feel free to comment!

This was the first set I ever owned so when I bought some Technic for the first time in 20 years recently, this was the set I found on ebay and bought!!
I love that it looks like a Unimog but it is not allowed to be called so!
I found this image on the site which shows it in comparison to the new Unimog! Having now seen how big it is, I want one!!

I have acquired a 8848 in very good condition with box, but it's missing the clear plastic cover that covers everything on the inside. Where would i be able to find one? Does someone have it?

Blakbird: I have searched bricklink. I have bought the set from there just now. It is complete and in very good condition, just lacks that plastic cover. I have not seen any set with box on BL that has it.

Bricklink is great for parts, but not-so-great for older sets and special parts like transparent covers for the old boxes.

Also this has to be one of the first links with the Mercedes unimog or at least a compliment to it without paying any loyalities.

So i decided i need to collect all the classic 80s lego sets, before they become too rare and expensive.
Started with the big trio first (8848, 8859 and 8860)
