A Mercedes Actros Heavy Rescue
Posted 01 July 2012 - 04:02 PM
Hello everybody, I'd like to share with you a MOC I had sitting around almost finished for about 3 months now, and that I last week finally took the time for to finish and take some pictures. So here it is: a european heavy rescue fire truck, based on Mercedes Actros and with a back mounted integrated crane. You can find pictures of my inspiration here.
I think of all my builds so far, it is the most detailed, and I spent much more time designing it in LDD than using actual bricks to put it together. Especially for the driving cabin and the windshield I tried many different variations before I settled for one. I found this particularly difficult because I didn't want to use one of the generic Lego windshields (I somehow dislike them). I also used larger wheels than on my previous models, and I think they actually work quite well with this kind of large truck.
Please let me know what you think of it and if you have any criticism, suggestions or questions. Enjoy!
You can find my LDD file for the model in this thread later on.
As you can see, there is more than one use case for the crane: Bertha had to be rescued from a pit again!

Not quite, actually it is this one:
But I guess the flexible hose could work as well, although it might bend when you put too much stress on it.
