Lately, I’ve been having a lot of fun building minifigure scale trucks, instead of, say, aircraft or larger-scale vehicles. These are three of my latest: Dutch DAF trucks. The first represents an XF105 Super Space Cab, with a trailer carrying a 40ft Maersk refrigerated container. It is similar to thousands that roam European motorways.
While LEGO System builders enjoy the just-unveiled 10290 Pickup Truck, Technic fans can have some fun too, as LEGO also unveiles two new Technic sets, 42128 Heavy-duty Tow Truck and 42129 4×4 Mercedes-Benz Zetros Trial Truck. As usual, the sets are filled with various play functions, both manual and motorized. The new sets join 42126 Ford F-150 Raptor, that was revealed just yesterday.
Welcome back fight fans, to Sin City Nevada for another no holds barred edition of Friday Night Fights! Tonight’s bout is a struggle of military logistics featuring two young-guns of the hobby. Let’s go to the tale of the tape:
As usual, constant reader, you are tasked with deciding the outcome of this pugilistic endeavor by way of comment. On the last edition of Friday Night Fights, the so-called Mosaic Massacre, Tommy Williamson a.k.a. The Lompoc Lightning-bolt knocked out his opponent 5-1. Tune in next week for more action!
Dennis Bosman (legotrucks) returns to the Brother-Ship for the third time this year with a massive truck that was just about a year in the making. If you’d like to have some factual details about this complex model, head on over to Mr. Bosman’s website where a wealth of stats and background information is waiting for you.
I could have sworn I read about this model on another blog, but I can’t seem to recall the name. Oh well, its not like any one blog can claim the rights to a model.
