What’s in the box, er, silo?

This Technic Silo Truck by Designer-Han shows that sometimes boxy is sooo good. The design elements of the model are pretty simple, with beam-built body panels and a SYSTEM brick-built “silo” as cargo. The roof of the cab shows some thoughtful details, including a rack of lights, top air dam, and CB antenna.

The play functions are where this model truly shines. The truck smoothly loads and unloads the silo thanks to a motorized pneumatic system. When unloading or unloading, the model has powered, extendable and retractable stabilizer “feet” to steady the truck. In addition, the truck’s cab tilts open to reveal the chassis and mechanisms underneath.

The silo itself has some play functionality, as you can fill it up with small 1×1 round studs and turn a crank to bring them tumbling out like rocks from a sifter.
