Hi everyone.

Started working on a new project a few days ago. It is a twinsteer Renault Magnum fridge van with a taillift fitted. It is made out of pieces from the 42078 set. 

Now, I have a few bits and bobs left and was wanting to build a palletjack or some find of mini forklift to go in the back with a few pallets of goods, leftover tyres, hydraulic rams bit etc. Few odd goods for a fridge van eh 😂. Anyhow, I’m looking for expressions of interest as to what I should make to put in the fridge van itself.

Many thanks, 


I will add a few photos of the rig below.

The front is rather hard to do without curved panels. I really like the wheel arches, looks really iconic :-)

As there are 2 big and 2 small actuators; did you try do use a two-step system? One mechanic to bring the door in horizontal position and on to lower them?

Thanks guys, jorgeopesi, yes looks really compact and short in the pics but it’s defintely a lot longer in real life! Creating the cab wasn’t too hard Jundis, yes there are not many curved panels, but I think the fact that the magnum’s cab was relatively square made easy work of designing one up. I have only used the 1 small actuator as i could not fit a large one in as easily as I would have liked. The tailgate just folds out by hand 😂.

Cheers, Kyle
