BIGRIG2005 posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingSo, I ripped apart my previous Renault magnum also made from the bits out of the 42078 Mack truck set, and created this. A Leyland T45 Roadtrain. I have tried to make it one of my best c models yet, by trying to get a nice looking design, but still incorporate heaps of functions. The truck features: -a tilting cabin -opening doors -HOG steering -Working fake 6 cylinder Cummins motor -Working Mid-Lift axle -Same fifth wheel as Mack anthem, so trailers are interchangeable between the trucks. The trailer is a bulk tipper. I didn’t really base it off any trailers but more rather combined ideas from different trailers. I combined both the chassis from a side tipper and added a regular bulk tipper bed to that. The trailer features: -A tipping bed which is raised an lowered by a large actuator ram. -working stabiliser legs -suspended front axle (allows movement up and down so follows contours on undulating ground) -automatic locking tailgate (cannot be opened at anytime unless a force is acted upon it) -aligning rails on tipper bed to limit bed movement from side to side when fully lowered. Hope you guys like it 🙂. Cheers, Kyle
