Not long ago, I added a small Christmas tree farm to my LEGO town Brickington. Now that the trees are nearing maturity it was necessary to build a vehicle to transport them. This started out as a mod of the German Transport truck from INDY set 7622. By the time the evening ended, it was something very different. Here's some pics. Life is much easier ever since I wised up and spent 8 bucks on a mini-tripod for my digital camera.
I wish I could take credit for the frog hood ornament, but someone else did it first. Finaly found a use for my chrome grates though.
This is probably my first vehicle that has used half setbacks and combined 5 and 6 wide sections. Old hat for most MOC'ers, but new ground for me. I wanted it to look like it might have a dump capability with out having to build it as such.
With driver and a full load of 2 trees. Yeah, it's a small truck.
That's it. I wanted to build a truck that would fit with both the 4 wide cars and 6 wide trucks that exist throughout Brickington, and I'm happy with the results. However, I'm pretty new to MOCing road vehicles, so suggestions for improvement are greatly appreciated.
