If you are like me, building cars and trucks that look like the real thing in LEGO is challenging. I can handle castles and spaceships, but real-world stuff is hard. Fortunately for me, and for you if you are like me, Norton74 is here to help us out, generously sharing instructions and parts for a sweet looking set of wheels. It ain’t sexy, and it ain’t fast, but it looks just right – like it just pulled a trailer full of hay bales down the back roads of Iowa. All it is missing is some rust, but you could add that with some custom stickers or dark orange bits placed in just the right spots.
The red and white color scheme is perfect, but you could change it to green or blue if you have the parts; since it consists of 164 elements, it won’t break the bank if you have to order some. By its scale, I would say that it looks like it would fit perfectly next to your old 6-stud-wide Speed Champions sets (themselves classics now, with the move to 8-wide) while cruising downtown looking for a bite at Irma’s Diner.
