About this creation
Hi there, this is my minifig impression of a non-existing transport company, named Hooghuis Transport. When I used to play with my brothers, we all made up a mature name, and mine was Hooghuis (I don't remember why). We played al sorts of things with mainly cars and LEGO, amongst which our own transportation company (worship @ our daddy :-). So here's what one of the company's assets could have looked like, enjoy:




Check out that Michelin mascottes, just above that light blue sun blind!

Fully loaded truck. Look at those antenna's, orange flashing lights and the top and side spoilers:

Impressive...

This truck has air suspension.

The driver has all the luxury he can wish ;-). I put the steering wheel in horizontally and the gear handle on the dash. Also, check out that third mirror for the dead angle:

Here you can see the trailer connections:





And the cooled trailer itself:



This is the whole combination, do you like it?



Currently, it is transporting a truckload of soft drinks:

The load is easily unloaded with the multifunctional loading bridge:





The truck at work (since that's what it's made for). Check out that lazy driver!

I like it!

Hope you like it too! Feel free to comment - also feedback for future improvements!

Quoting Steffen Kasteleiner I only would have gone for a 7-wide construction for the semi. But thatīs just a personal preference. Best regards, Steffen
Thanks for your comment. Your suggestion is a good one. That would have been the better option, I didn't think about that so thanks a lot. Of course, this rig is no more... ;-)

The lettering is awesome! I love the way you did that without using complicated techniques - like the inclusion of cheese slopes that so many others use. This is beautifully designed, but with simple means - great! I also am huge fan of the lifting platform on your trailer - very realistic! I only would have gone for a 7-wide construction for the semi. But thatīs just a personal preference. Best regards, Steffen
