42030 - Volvo L350F Wheel Loader

Recommended Posts

Just today I got in the mail these tires and mounted them on my 42030. They fit almost perfectly, they are made out of an soft rubber but they got foam inside so there is no sustaining the model (maybe with the batteries on the back tires could flatten as the rubber is kinda soft). I got them with free shipping and I think 15$ is a great deal for four tires.

Nice. I went downsizing. I needed the tires for another MOC and slapped on some LEGO balloon tires to hold it up in the meantime.

The servo steering seems to work better with the PF Train Speed controller.

My L350F had been sitting on the shelf for a few months so I decided to dust it off and take some new photos. I prefer outdoor shoots but it is -5c this time of year :laugh:

Before the shoot I had a go at replicating the proper L350F sloped back and also changed the rear end as I felt that the original was too squared off. I'm also using the Rock Crusher XT 1.9 tires but instead of foam inserts I actually put the included LEGO tires inside for added support. The best mod was adding Efferman's incredible steering system.

I had a spare train RC remote and pretty happy with the steering using that. I'm fairly happy with the looks of it, but might try tidy the front section up, and definitely want to add some lights to this.

I think Berlioz may rather have a CAT 988H Wheel Loader instead. :laugh:

Please tell me you are joking, converted to NZ $, that's 1/3 what I paid for mine ($400 NZD ~€244)

The price today is 180 Euros (http://www.valuebric...F-Radlader.html), not 80 :(

That makes me feel a bit better, still a bit cheaper than what they are selling for down here (~$300NZD instead of $400)

If its 180 Euros without electronics, that makes it pretty expensive doesn't it?

Well finally finished the custom build and it drives much better than the original build :sweet:. Thanks to effermann for the redesign, catweazel for the pdf, freekysch for the link on the tires and my own brain for moving the front mudguard back :grin:
