Freightliner Argosy Octan B-double tanker
Set 3221 screamed at me "Argosy" , so with two sets of 3180and a few extra bits i was able too belt out my version of a Freightliner Argosy B-double tanker set up.
About this creation
Hope your Lego car has enough grunt to round up this baby before you get cleaned up by oncoming traffic!

Yes there is glass for the side windows. Unfortunately there was a problem at the bricklink factory and it doesn't quite fit(grumble grumble). Have a plan for a bullbar one day (curse you Brian Lyle, every idea i have 2 weeks later it turns up here in a similar form !!!)

Bulk delivery into service station underground tanks. Hmm maybe that's why he's always smiling, high on octan fumes??

Three bulk delivery hoses clip together and clip into place for transport.

Why the hell is this guy always smiling? Perhaps it's all the speed he takes to make those inter-state deadlines??

A trailer of my B-double.

Based on set 3221 ,and using two sets of 3180 this is my version of an argosy. Originally it was to have the swing out steps, but i think this is much cleaner.

Quoting Andrew Larkum Great Truck, it's a bit of a monster and I like it. I also had problems with those windows from bricklink. I ordered red frames with the glass inserts but they didnt fit properly. The glass had two tabs on it and the frame only had one, a bit weird.
It's only a pup on Australian roads Andrew! I did think about doing a full roadtrain , and it may still happen(picture it 16 studs longer). As for the windows, bang on buddy, what's up with that??

Quoting cyberfrank 2010 cool variation, ambitious, the red panel on top, is the only thing that is distracting, very nice truck!
Not much choice about "panel" on top. They only come in red , yellow, or see through. So since this one had the octan sticker on it and it still fits the overall colour scheme, that's the one i went for.

Oggy, this is a great mod of the kit. Your cab with the sleeper is very well done. Regards, Eric.
