    Just finished base in 1st set of bags, and I have 5 black pins left over. Anyone else?
  2. At this point, I would be happy with either lol. I only said 19 because that's what covers the dually wheels on most trucks I have.
  3. You have a good point. Even the Arocs truck is 17 studs wide. Thank you.
  4. Hey guys, I'm looking to see if anyone wants a challenge. I want to build an 2009 International flatbed truck. My problem is I am great with functions, but I stink at looks. I drive this truck for work, making deliveries of steel to the job sites. Here is a picture of the same model truck I drive for work: What I need: The hood, grill, bumper, cab design. Scale: I want it to be to scale with the 42009 mobile crane using the same wheels. I plan on making the bed either 19 or 21 studs wide. Design: I would love it to be mostly Technic. A similar design like the 42078 Mack Anthem truck, but I'm open to anything. So, who wants to accept my challenge? I know sometimes people want a direction for their next project, so maybe this is the boost you need. Glenn
  5. Thank you for the pictures. Looks slightly larger scale, but that's ok for Lego. Definitely a buy for me. I deliver steel to job sights, and see these cranes all the time.
  6. Hello Jim. Any chance you could take a picture of this next to the 42009 crane or 42043 Arocs? Would like to see a size comparison. Thanks!

    I went through all the posts and can't find either the pictures or who to ask for them. Can someone fill me in? Thank you.

    Able to pick up 42070 for $195 and 42069 for $137 last night. Thanks for the tip! I wasn't going to get them, but at that discount I couldn't say no. Glenn
  9. The hitch is a simple design. Used pins with stops for easy removal. Glenn
  10. My mods are low for now, but looking for inspiration. Black Claas Xerion 5000: With B model silage plow: Also, I ran a pneumatic hose through the chassis, so I can add a pump on 1 side, and an attachment on the other: My first attachment, a disc with fold able sides and lowering transport wheels: I was going to have a pto driven pump, but the stock pto rotates too slow. Plus, did not want to run pto driven attachments and the pump at the same time. Glenn

    How did you get the wheel hubs to attach? Very nice model by the way. Glenn
  13. Just wanted to say I received my stickers last week and finally had the chance to put them on. What a difference! Thanks again. Glenn

    [TC10] Pneumatic Genie Man Lift

    Thanks! I wanted to make something where the controls were where they go in real life, not just in the base like most sets.
