[MOD] 42112 Renault Trucks C Cement Mixer

Recommended Posts

Since I saw the first images of the 42112 Cement Mixer I felt that the cabin looked too much as a child toy, and I wanted to create something closer to cement mixers I usually see here in Italy.

For this reason I decided to mod the cab, I created a cab similar to a "Renault C-range":

I also preferred to modify the original color scheme (white - blue - dark blue) and all the mudguards were modified into black.

I've also added some details on the back, something that was missing in the original model:

Even if lego establishes it as a new standard, it is too small for me.

But I think it's awesome what you make of it. The Renault is easy to recognize.

I also love your TGX and wanted to use the fenders on mine first, but they don't come in yellow.

The Renault cabin is really an eye-catchter. The grey and black panels fit so well here!

The Renault Cab is a nice alternative.  Did you need many extra parts?  Also well done for closing in the water tank.  It looks much better than in the 42112.

Here you can see the list of the extra parts needed, most of them are very common parts:
