    Thank You for the photo's Mr Efferman, some amazing moc's and a lot of inspirational ideas. The longer wheelbase Scania has the better look to it.

    The best part about hook trucks is the variant of payloads you can carry from flat trays to skip's to custom load out platforms ( we had a twin pull winch with spade legs on one. ) One again Mr Efferman, your a very talented man, and the scale looks great. and well within my budget compared to other trucks out there....

    Technic Pub

    I currently have Data Easts Jurassic Park, which if you switch the T Rex side to side movement on makes game play hilarious. it seems if you have a Williams/sterns/bally machine you can ask silly prices for junk, where the Data Easts seem to play poor cousins. However the one thing that I like in todays day and age ( yep the grey hairs are certainly showing ) is the internet and the wealth of information on it and the access to buy parts halfway around the world with a click of a button. I certainly would like to one day do a custom build.

    I have refurbished a couple of machines for friends, I guess its handy to be able to do wood and metal work and also electrical.. I think its the tinker factor for me...

    I wish track changes in the real world were this easy, mind you once its time to change tracks and final drives it more than time to sell the machine.. mind you my two are high hours but low impact use and certainly don't do the amount of track walking.. family photo for ya Grum..

    An interesting thing to note from the designer video is that MK has Nine different versions sitting on the table.

    [MOC] Aston Martin Vulcan

    An amazing build / design. One certainly can learn a lot from this MOC. Some very clever ideas executed very well, ( I'm going to have to steal that front end ) Hopefully you inspire a lot more car's in this scale ...

    But I like Waffle, its the insights and one's perspective that makes the build entertaining... As for electrical Loom's having spent two days having a argument with a Scania 640 engine loom and yes I agree, the little bleeper's have a mind of their own..

    I can offer my sympathy's Grum, Though a decent dose of Man Flu is nothing close to yours.. though when one starts to cough up blood there is usually something a bit more wrong. I hate trucking cattle, and silly me thinking its a bad cold, turns out to be three broken rib's and a collapsed lung... needless to say I hope that steer tastes good one someone's plate.

    Pneumatic Axle Brake Design

    A lot of the light weight Japanese trucks have the simple system of a drum brake on the back of the gearbox that simply locks the driveshaft to the axles as a park brake. the only issue with it is a lot of drivers tend to apply it at speed with weight on and given that its a standard drum brake with a sheet metal backing it tends to poop itself.

    Effe's MOC Corner

    Sorry tired tonight, But IMO it is a buildable and playable MOC, I have Kevin Moo's forklift built and the part count for that model is 1768, I would think Effermans would be hard pressed to be more than 800? parts. I suspect that you could build this moc ( minus the PF ) out of a 42076 and 42079 and still have change to buy a Bugatti compared to kevins. As for the tilt ram in the cabin, My Mitsubishi 6.0 tilt ram pivots sit right next to the brake and accelerator pedals and honestly I use it as a foot rest when travelling between yards ( about 3km's ) Model Comments, I would add work lights to the cabin, maybe also a seat and controls detail, ( ok that's uping the parts count ) but Efferman Moc's always have those suttle details.

    [WIP] MAN TGS 10x8 Effer 2655

    I can see your limited in height due to your Chassis, however could you have the 8:24 reduction before the final drive, http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=548971 pipasseyoyo has a very good model using the same principles as you want. After a lot of playing around with a axle I have used you could mod to fit what you want .lxf is on my bricksafe page.
