Justin Pratt (legotanks) makes excellent little delivery trucks as well as tanks. At BrickCon last year, I gave him a couple of engraved “The Brothers Brick” bricks on condition that he build us a delivery van. Justin recently finished it, and posted it online last night (after displaying it at Emerald City Comicon this weekend).
That’s “me” behind the wheel, but you may see someone I’m hauling along behind. Per his request, my co-founder Josh is along for the ride in a little red wagon.
Justin’s truck joins what’s turning out to be our delivery fleet, led by the truck Nathan Proudlove brought to BrickCon 2009 (where we successfully fought off a zombie horde).
I rarely blog LEGO models together, but these two wheeled beasts seem almost as though they were designed to be put on as a double act.
Sorting by date gives Shannon Sproule (Ocean) the top billing with his latest excellent addition to Battle for the Moon. And even by his own high standards this one is a winner. He presents the Soviet Lunar Katyusha for our edification.
Following on is Mark Stafford (nabii), taking a very different theme and adding wheels to Space Police 3. It’s another example from Mark of what I call set+ building. Somewhere between set style and over-the-top finicky AFOL style. I’m a big fan of that sort of build, at least in part because I can’t pull it off at all well and here it is made to look effortless.
Dennis Bosman (Legotruck) says it took him six months to build this rugged Kenworth K100 (with Holmes 750) and even a caual inspection proves that it was time well spent. You can see all the fine details in Dennis’s Flickrstream or check out his website LEGO Trucks & Heavy Equipment, that features a wealth of design notes and details.
