LEGO introduced the Model Team theme back in 1986 — it featured vehicle models at a larger scale, with more details and often some interesting functions. Shawn Davis has build a Model Team-inspired Research Crawler and photographed it beautifully. There’s a sense of exploring the unknown as the vehicle enters the dark, uneven terrain, encountering apparently giant autumnal leaves! Aside from the cool photography, the vehicle itself is a great build — plenty of windows, clever use of drawers for kit, and a manipulator arm at the front to obtain specimens for closer inspection.
The researcher looks ready for dangerous encounters with her PPE attire, but the poor motorcycling lookout only gets binoculars and a fast bike for protection!
