Dennis Bosman posted a topic in LEGO Scale ModelingFinally my Kenworth K100E is ready. I took a while before it was done. I start building this model back in the summer of 2011, when I came back from the UK. Heading for the ferries I also took a short visit to the yard of Neil Yates Recovery. I knew they have a K100 and I was very pleased it was parked there at that moment. Building is wasn't an easy task. It would become my first US truck on a large scale and with the use of chrome parts. I hardly had some in my collection and I had to buy everything; that's rather expensive. I had a chassis and the exterior of the cab but then I decided to build a smaller version first; my previous K100 with Holmes twin boom. That one turned out very well and I continued building the NYR wrecker in 2013. It's my largest solo vehicle so far, with the exception of the large Liebherr mobile crane I built during the 90s. I took quite some pictures which can be viewed in my Flickr stream; here you can see some details as well.
So it's been a while since I last build something; started 3 projects, all aborted due to lack of inspiration. But like magic I sighted a chest piece laying around and had a little eureka moment; 'looks like the back of a car'. While building a prototype, 'Blade Runner' got a grip on me, and behold... Aerodyne; a hovercar inspired by 'Blade Runner'. More shots and opening canopy can be found at my Flickr Gallery Comments and critisiscm welcome.
