In this topic I will share my MOCs with you, if I have any :)
I will show some MOCs in my first post, and post new ones when I'm satisfied with what I built. You can see all the photo's on my Bricksafe page (click on the photo or in my signature).
1. DAF XF 105 and Krone Coolliner
This is my first MOC I ever made that I think looks nice. It's a DAF XF 105 with Krone cooling trailer. I also made some 'decals', which are just printed on a A4 sheet of paper and sticked onto the truck and trailer.
- HOG steering
- Openable doors on truck and trailer
- Lockable fifth wheel (same setup as Mack Anthem)
- Retracteble landing gear on the trailer
Here are some photo's:

2. Iveco X-way
Moving on in complexity (is that a word?): my model of an Iveco X-way, based on this:
My model is remote controlled, and made with only Mack Anthem parts, except the electric parts. I tried to reuse the sticker art, which worked fairly well I think. This model isn't near to perfect, because the shapes of the Iveco are hard to capture, especially with limiting myself to the parts of 42078. Anyway, I will let the pictures speak.
- Remote controlled drive and steering using PU app
- Openable doors and cabin
- Working 6-inline fake engine
- Two-way tipping of the bed on the truck
- Working outtriggers on the truck
- Fully working crane (design from Technicprojects, not my own)
- Pendular rear axles
- Three-way tipping of the trailer
- Support leg on the trailer
- Opening sides on both the truck and trailer
3. Scania 140 Super
This is my most detailed model to date. I wanted to make a model which was both playable and looked good on display. I chose a Scania 140 Super in Astran livery, because I just read "Long Haul Pioneers, A Celebration of Astran, Leader in Overland Transport". My dad and I loved this book, it surely is a recommendation worth if you are interested in this. Anyway, let's go back to the model. It has the following functions:
- HOG steering hidden as luggage on the roof rack
- Openable doors and cabin
- Detailed Scania V8 fake engine
- Detailed interior with luggage
- 'Curtains' made of paper
The trailer has no special functions.
And again, some pictures:
4. DAF XF Euro 6 Timber Truck
My fourth (and final in this post) MOC is a DAF XF Euro 6, designed by Technicprojects. I took that 6x4*2 chassis, and converted it to an 8x4*4 chassis and I also increased the steering angle of the front wheels. Than I made a timber truck out of it. I added an bullbar, made it with PF instead of PU (the two outputs of the servo were really handy) and I kept it a fully alternate of both 42098 and 42109 (again, except for the electrical parts), like Technicprojects did. I knew already that I would have many parts left, so I decided to make a big combination out of it. I chose to make a LHV (Long Heavy Vehicle), which you see a lot in Scandinavia. They are also allowed in the Netherlands, Spain and parts of Germany, although there you hardly see them in timber truck configuration.
This model has the following functions:
- Remote controlled drive and steering
- Openable doors
- Steerable and liftable rear axle
- Working logging crane
- Retractable landing gear on the trailer
And some pictures:
There are instructions for the trailer for free on Rebrickable: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-77954/RebelsLegoRoom/42098-timber-trailer/#details
There's also a short video about the DAF itself, unfortunately my garden table isn't big enough to also house the trailer....
Thank you for reading, and I hope you leave some feedback!
I know the quality of the photo's isn't that great, but my camera is old and I don't have good lighting facilities. Apoligies for this!
