I like the design LT, but it would probably work better with less colours. I know that might be hard with available parts.

All white front would look ok. A yellow front might work too, to go in with the yellow under the tipper.

Nice truck ''lightingtiger'', it looks like the garbage truck (the cabin I mean).
I usually build rearview mirrors from the top of the cabin but the way you built looks very nice.
You gave me the idea now about that rearview mirrors, so I will borrow this if you don't mind :)

Thanks, it's based around the garbage truck from this year.....I was thinking of discarding the yellow for dark bluey grey instead.
My council's colours is white and green so they'll stay for the moment......I'll update a.s.a.p. keep watching ! :classic:

It looks nice, I'd probably say a standard type day cab or a crew cab would be more prototypical if such things are a concern to you.

It looks great.
Only thing to ask... what is ''council''?
Is it something like ''board'', ''committee'' ? And if yes, why?
I'm only courious... :)

A council is a local government division in Australia that is responsible for local issues such as garbage disposal, road and local park maintenance.

Looks great!
I like the previous cabin because it looks like utility truck, now looks as let me say ''regular'' truck.
But anyway, it looks great.
Just to add some sticker as sign in the front.
You are the man!!!

I do like the second CoE look much better lt. Looks like it'll navigate through your streets better without taking out another car during a sharp right left turn. Almost forgot what side you drive on in New Mannum  :grin: :classic:

Since I was working on a trailer for the skid loader (see I got it right for a change :rofl: ) I decided to add a removable tool chest inside the tool storage unit on the truck.

Check out the skip (skid) loader topic for the trailer image.
Keep watching everything of mine everyone ! :wink:

LT, you are everywhere!  I like the truck a lot, I can see the inspiration from the new garbage truck.  I'd love to MOC mine a little and make some sort of dump truck but my son won't let me (I'm 26 and my 4 year old bosses me around...ahh parenting).  Anyway the addition of the tool chest looks wonderful.  I'll check out the trailer in the other topic.

Thanks for the feedback......and my suggestion buy another dump truck set then modify or MOC something ! :wink:
Once I fix the trailer I'll post more pictures and cross-link them. :classic:

I love the removable toolbox.  It's a great idea.
