Garbage Truck (7991) Pic Review
Posted 02 July 2007 - 07:21 AM
Asuka, The reason I left off the mirrors is that I didn't want to lose the way those door-rail pieces overhang the windscreen - it's a sun visor I think, and is a feature I've noticed on real trucks of this type. I've now worked out a way to have both, so here is your suggestion in bricks, and an alternative idea of mine. I'm not sure which I like best at the moment.
Marvinblue, I'd noticed that some of the studs get stuck when tipping them out, but hadn't thought of your neat solution which I've added here. I've also put in some 45 degree slopes on the tailgate, which help the studs slide in too.
And finally, the secret revealed: Here's how I attached the front and still left room for the passenger's legs. I thought this mod would be quite weak, but it's surprisingly stable when it's butted up against the windscreen like that.
That's all for today!

Come on *yoda* , it's a recycling truck! Ya gotta think green! And don't try to come up with the excuse that you ARE literally green. :-P
Hey, TLC - I said: They look like thi-his!!! (hint, hint) :-D
Here, we have 3 of those ones, but fatter, much fatter. One for trash, one for recycling , and then (wait for it!) one for yard waste! :-| How lame is that? Recycling is great, but yard waste?!!
