(...)I can´t wait till your next project, this time perhaps
with a little bit of Weyland-Yutani mixed in, huh...?
I'm just way too predictable.
And thanks for the comments people. I take any Exploriens resemblance as a comment - that series has my favorite big space ship

Exellent truck! Do you have any more detailed pics of the 5th wheel coupling?
The system is based on the one from 8872
(see link for details of the construction), but is improved so that it locks automatically.
I have this shot from below the truck:
But it doesn't really show how it works.
Here is a better picture of the mechanism:
This yellow chassis is the internals of a truck that I plan to finish once I have decorated the sides of the trailer... and bought a video camera. It is only half a year over due

I think I am largely to blame for the Techinic decision. I will take your advice and move them. If I miss any feel free to bother me!
EDIT: Done! I also moved one that was in Others but was supposed to be in Technic...
(As for a Model Team Forum, sad to say, not very likely. A pure Technic or Bionicle one would be more likely first... and there isn't a good chance of that happening either!)
Thanks. It makes sense for me to have it under Technic. I appreciate your work.
It should be possible to force a Model Team forum. All we (Ralph_S, me and others?) have to do is make LEGO drop Technic, Bionicle... and reintroduce the Model Team line.
