hey everyone

its my first attempt making something big...

a truck with crane arm

it has a technic beam chassis and tiled body

uncludes 3 pf small motors
1 drive
2 steering
3 crane rotation

and also 2 PF lights

it was a bit hard to do it with beamed chssis because it must have 11,13,15,17,19 studs wide...

still had enough space for a good interior

here are the pics :  i have 2 vids of it working but ill upload them later

hope you guys like it

I like it a lot!  It's very clean-looking and professional.  It's a good combination of Power Functions and pneumatic Lego elements.  Is this truck modelled after any particular brand of Israeli truck?  I'm looking forward to seeing your video of it!

I like it, too.
Nice and unusual color as well, it works nice for the truck. Black fenders are very well fitted.

I do not like the height of the windshield, it looks too small compared to the cabin.
I want to see the video, too!

dluders: thanks! the trucks isnt a real model .. i concept i would call it

Milan: it looks small because you are looking from the top and you see only the dashboard
and also i couldnt replace the tiles in front...

Ok, but I would raise the roof by one or two bricks anyway...
Shouldn't the exhaust pipe be turned backwards (rotated by 180 degrees) :classic:

First tough that came into my mind when I saw your truck is: "DBG is cool colour for trucks", but when I zoomed pictures I can say that is smallest pros of it. Your skill of fitting PF under very fine body is just crazy.

Looking forward to video and your next MOCs

I like the low roofline of the truck -- it makes it look more "rad"!  The truck reminds me of the masonry brick delivery trucks toting pallets of REAL bricks and rocks to landscaping job sites.  Well done!

thanks guys ill soon finish uploading the videos
first of all i dint look at a real life truck to make this one its 99% imagined
and i cnat lift it on 1 brck for a very funny reason - i ran out of bricks :D   :sceptic:

i made the cabin from a small brick amount and im glad i had enough to finish the wole thing!!
and yeah ithought of a truck that will lift real wood or something...
but pneumatics arent that strong


EDIT: here are the videos

Great!
Everything works just fine.
You should show extending the boom via worm and gear racks, just to present it all :classic:
I am always impressed to see how M Motor has power enough to propel vehicle in that scale!

One question, when you place the truck on that grass, does its back wheels drift when you turn on the propelling motor?
Again, very well done!

Very nice truck, it is so smooth and the color is quite nice, although the roof is a little bit too low.
I like the fact that the truck drives so well and that the crane is compact but still fully functional.
Great work.

Fantasic work and again love the colour, I actually like the small windshield, makes it look mean.  The only thing I did not take to was the front wheels with the rim sticking out so far but a) I know why and b) I cant see how you would get around it.

Cant believe this is your first big moc.
