Hi Folks. Had the container truck a few months now and at the weekend decided to re-build it into the "B" model. I'm definitely not impressed with the looks of this version, it is poor in comparison to the "A" model. :thumbdown:
Does anyone have any suggestions as to an alternative model to build using the container truck parts?

I also have the Front Loader and altered that at the weekend to it's "B" model, and I have to say that this is quite good. A bit inferior to the "A" model but certainly a B-I-G model when the claw arm is at full stretch!! Well worth having a look if you have this set.

He said that it would be possible. Although he lost the pictures from dismantling his model, he says, he might be able to build it again for you.

Hi Folks,
I'm creator of this truck with work platform and I have good news for you. Even i lost all pictures of last dismantling I built it again to last pin same as first time. I'd like to make instructions in LPub but I have no experiences with digital building except LDD. So in nearest days I'll be able to give you just photos of assembly. If you wanna see more pictures click here.

@ Tomik:

Hope you get these building instructions soon.
You've made a great alternative model and i guess lot of people would love to built your model themselves.
I hardly can't wait!

Great alternative model, I have always hoped Lego would produce a lift truck instead of just cherry picker and telescopic handler types.  It would make a great main model.  Instructions would be real nice if they can be made available.
