Everybody knows these. Massive, ugly vehicles seen in numbers on each bigger construction site. Some of them, however, really stand out from the crowd. For example - the Czech Tatra 815. It is a really peculiar truck, with its independent "bent" suspension, air-cooled engine or even exhaust which isn't as simple as in more typical trucks. I am really surprised that the steering wheel is still round... ;). It really deserved a Lego model, and as I am a big fan of lego trucks... it was just a matter of time.
The model itself is built in minifig scale, but without a minifig inside, because of massive SNOT-work. Sorry for that, but I think that overall look is more important than details like minifig fitting in the cabin. The tipper can be raised or lowered, its endplate opened, wheels turn, suspension is bent like in original car... and that is all. I hope that you like it :)

Especially the front section and the sides of the tipper look very distinct... hmm, I wonder how
that 1x2 grey tile behind the front wheel might be attached..?
