This is a MAN TGS 8x4 in classic Model Team scale 1:25.

It is remotely controlled using Power Functions. The drum turns independent of everything else. There are PF lights both in the front and back, so a lot of wires had to be hidden:

The doors can open, slide be turned and the seats are adjustable.
The battery box can be replaced by a white canister for display/GBC mode.

What do you mean you build slowly? :wink:

Very nice, as always. I particularly like the drum.

This is my son love, cement trucks (no idea why Posted Image ), if would be wonderful if you could make building instructions for this.

Are you willing?

I am also willing to invest money in this (payable via paypal).

Thanks guys. Here is an additional rear shot.

> Ricecracker
It has been about a year since last time I presented a truck. I would call that slow. This truck alone took 2 months to build.

> mahjqa

> dolittle
The problem with instructions is that they still take a lot of time to make, and I mostly receive negative feedback from them. I prefer to value looks over durability, so I get a lot of complaints about stability (and even more of "where can I buy parts?"). It typically takes me about a year to finish building instructions for a small truck because I only build virtually during travel.

> Fuzzylegobricks
More than the one?

The idea of using it as a GBC module is just brilliant and on top of that it looks and moves really cool.  :thumbup:

I know the pieces fit.

I also love the fact that it can be used as a GBC module.

Including remote controlled and rotating drum just lifts this above and beyond a normal LEGO Moc, well done mate.

Wow Lasse, this is great! Great color, modeling (especially the stripes on the mixer) and functions. The fact that it doubles as a GBC module makes this double-WIN!
