Hi everybody,

I want to present you my planned TC6 Entry:

A remote controlled Dumptruck with 4 axles.

The functions are:

- Driving the rear wheels with a XL-Motor

- Steering the two front wheels with a Servo-Motor

- Cabin tilt with a M-Motor

- Tilting dump bed with 2 LAs over a L-Motor (or maybe XL-Motor)

- Open the doors (manual)

All motorized functions are controlled by 2 IR-Receiver and 2 Remotes.

This model isn´t based on an real model, it should represent a standard European dumptruck.

My design of the cabin is inspired by 8258, but I choose a different color scheme.

Here are a few screenshot of my current project in LDD:

Nice :)

Thanks kisper

Looks almost like a Mercedes-Benz AROC model!! Very nice and clean-looking.

Thanks nerdsforprez. A Mercedes is an European Truck, so this is possible ;)

nice but one question

Are you left handed the steering wheel of your remote is on the left

Thanks TheNextLgoDesigner. No, I´m right handed, but I like to have the steering wheel on the left.

This is looks abslutely awesome! Could you tell me how many flat yellow panels you used for the dump bed?

Thanks OG_technic. I planned to use 6 flat yellow panels for the dump bed.

In the body there are 4 other flat yellow panels. So I need 10 panels in total.

The full res pictures are on my Brickshelf

You can see the V8 fake engine, the two front axles, the two rear axles and some parts of the body structure.

The two LA´s will raise the dump bed.

And now the pictures:

It's looking pretty good! Does it have suspension?

Thanks Coola1.

Unfortunaly I don't have the needed parts for supspension, so I never planned to use suspension. But I think it must be possible to fit suspension into this model.

Looks pretty fantastic :wub: I like how clean the lines are.

Thanks OG_technic. I think I should remove all the stickers, then it should look better.
