Few days ago I’ve bought 8159. I liked those mudguard pieces, so I build something with them for the first try. I’ve also used my black 20x30 wheels. The drum uses three of them.
The chassis is articulated, so it’s fun to roll on trough desk ;)

The model is quite simple, built just for fun ;)

A very cool steamroller, great in size and proportion and simply lovely.  :thumbup:
Although I like the design of the driver´s cabin I still think that an accurate
access to it would be cool... hmm, speaking about coolness... how about some
'pimp my steamroller' contest? More power on!  :tongue:

I like it! Very nice parts usage on fitting the exhaust in there and I like the solution for side mirrors as well. Nice MOC!

Very cool roller, it looks neat, clean and sleak, and fun to roll around the desk :)
Good job on the details like the side mirrors and the exhaust pipe, those really complete this MOC.

I honestly think this looks better than LEGO's own roller, because this one has a completely smooth surface on the drum. But smooth drum or not, this looks nice. :thumbup:

Thanks for sharing! :classic:

That is very good :thumbup:  It looks like a set TLG would release.

One word: lovely. I just love to see such small yet intricate MOCs and yours is truly amazing. Well done mate!

Shouldn't the back wheels be smooth as well as when the front smoothes the tarmac or Concrete, the back is going to leave some marks in the back.

You've done it again M_Longer! I love all your work, but I must say, this is one of your better ones. I love the compactness (No pun intended), and like Aliencat said, the small details really move this from great to outstanding. Very well done.

Actually no. as you can see in the following picture, many rollers/compacters actually have treaded wheels.

Definitely agree. I might have to try to build this one myself!

That's a great work you have done :thumbup:
Good proportions and smoth looking in such a small(good) size.
