A heavy tractor and trailer for hauling around equipment on rugged planetary surfaces. The tractor includes steering, V6 engine and all-wheel independent suspension, and the trailer has suspended wheel bogies. It carries the Eagle, a two-man light attack craft. (click the pictures for more images)

Excellent old school space design with some modern parts there 'CP5670' - I really like it !
The engine looks a mean one too ! (torque for pulling, then speed to get the you-know-what out of somewhere !) :grin:
Great work 'CP5670' and keep on bricking ! :sweet:

I like the long cockpit on it , it really fits the style of the theme, and those shocks you added to it must be fun to use on your desk eh.
Will you be adding a trailer to this some time in the future?

Very nice work! You made Unitron good with this MOC. I like how well this fits in with the actual theme, everything from the colors to the parts used is perfect.

Nice job on this!  :thumbup:

Yes, it's fun to roll around the house. I was actually going to make it motorized originally but there wasn't enough room for a battery box in it, so I just settled with a standard Technic engine. The differential also had to be oriented in a funny way to fit inside the small chassis, but it works quite smoothly.

I'll probably make something for it to pull. It's supposed to be part of a factory in my monorail setup (which is not yet finished).

BUMP

This vehicle now has a trailer and fighter to go with it (sort of inspired by the three-piece Model Team sets like 5591). I made these things quite a while ago, but only got around to taking pictures recently.

Pretty nice. It keeps the general feel of the theme, and looks rather good overall.

Thanks. I like to try and keep true to the original themes in these models, especially with the color schemes.

I wasn't on here long enough to see this truck the first time around, but it seems to be you've made your first model triple awsome. I especially like the colors and the fighter.
