[MOC] Mercedes Zetros expedition vehicle

Recommended Posts

 

Mercedes Zetros in the version of an extreme expedition vehicle was created two years ago.

It was supposed to be a model to put on a shelf. Therefore, it has no drive and remote control.
However, he is not completely devoid of life.
One PF M motor through the gear box drives three different model functions.
Winch, side ladder and rear platform with motorcycle and spare wheel.
The motorcycle is an old set of 8251 in slightly changed colors,
because it perfectly fit in dimensions.

The car was based on the Unimog chassis, which was extended, reinforced and supplemented with a few details.
The gear box and the engine have also been rebuilt. The cab and body along with the mechanisms were created completely new, in the model of a real vehicle.
I tried to keep dimensions and faithfully reproduce the original.

This looks great, if only it was motorized:blush:

But you have your own reasons there. Great job!

It looks very nice! Lack of motorised driving is actually a good thing sometimes! It allows you to play around and show off the model quite quickly.

An expedition truck? :wub: What I especially like, that it is both hands-on and motorized model. Best fun!

Forgot to praise the aesthetics... now I did, I guess. :classic:

You beat me to it (Lol).

Great work. Will there be instructions ?

No for sure not. I do not have this model anymore and i prefer to build models than to create instructions for them.
