The second orange Scania has the best looking front so far.
I'm not sure about the back of the truck though, I think the older version looked better, especially the lights (I like individual System lights more than round TECHNIC pieces) and the mudguards, but the coupling as well. I'm not sure if there's a way to make it more compact, maybe a black colour would help as well. The red liftarms look out of place to me. The licence plate looks big, did you use a 1x4 tile? I think a 1x3 will look better. Just ment to be constructive feedback.
Especially with a model like this, I still would use the rechargeable box since it's a more compact and less heavy.
The receiver on the side: have you added receivers on both sides?
Thanks for the constuctive feedback. I agree that the aesthetics of the rear are not as neat the the old one. This is because the x-axle with the lights now serves a purpose. The red liftarms show the state of the coupling.
I need the large battery boxes as they hold power enough for a full day of exhibiting. This is also a huge challenge because of their width (11 studs vs. truck width of 12)

Lasse, It was I who filmed the big red container crane you showed off.
And because I have gottan my inet's connection tripled from 1Mbit to 3Mbit then I will see if I can renember to reuploade it in full 1080p as it is strait for the dslr sometime late I a bit busy for the next few months.
Awesome! I didn't get to take a video myself - I was busy rebuilding trucks and containers most of the time (it is me in the background). All the stuff I exhibit is free to show in pictures and videos - people can even sell trucks built using my instructions.

I knew, it just anoyes me that I was in such a hurry that I din't grab. Detailed pictures of the crane, that could been useful for everybody if lasse had allow for posting them. Also my position compare to the dslr zoom was a perfect fit.
But I didn't shoot any shoot of the crane...
I will make a better functional crane, but it was nice to see it in motion.
I have built a new top for the truck which takes it to the first iteration. I also want to create building instructions, but I want to avoid using rare parts, so I have to ask if the bricks in the following picture are cheaply available in larger quantities:
