I took a while to complete this model (I didn't had time, pieces etc) but it seems that I'll be posting new models more often now.

First, the real machine:

This reminds me of my old tonka trucks from my youth, especially with the mechanical functions. Great job. I love that its minifig scale too, it looks like it could be an official set.
