I am back with the 9th alternative model - European Truck. It features tilting cab over V6 engine with moving pistons and pullback motor. I am very satisfied with overall design and level of detail. It should be no surprice that I also had to sacrifice few features to get others so it actually can't haul anything because there is pullback motor in place where you would expect the fifth wheel and doors can't open in order to get rigid tilting cab. If you compare this European truck with my American truck, American truck will feel so childish.

Wow, this last truck is just awesome !!

Also, loved the earlier propeller plane.

All these wonderful (and ingenious) alternates enhance the value of the original set so much !

Three months passed and I'm back with the 10th alternative model - pullback crocodile*huh* I wanted to build something special so this crocodile is the best among my other alternative models from set 42106 in several areas - it is the longest (it is almost 60 cm long), the funniest, the strangest and probably the ugliest of them. It features three wheeled chassis and when it goes it is opening its maw and moving its tail.

That's quite a cool array of alternates there! I like to see the diversity in them, and that mechanical crocodile is a nice idea, it would be good to see it moving!

Thank you for your comment. It is real fun to watch crocodile moving. If you have parts to build it I can recommend it.

Sure it's fun, but unfortunately, I don't have a pullback motor..
