This is my first MOC as an AFOL. While waiting in line at one of my favorite food trucks here in Los Angeles, it dawned on me that the food truck would be the perfect choice for my first MOC. As I stared at the food truck in front of me, I started imagining how the details of the truck could be translated into Lego.

For the past 3 weeks, I've been working on this vehicle, solving problems, adding details, and making the build as efficient as possible. My goal was to make it in the style of official sets while adding as much detail as I could. Hence, it is 6-wide and uses the wheels and mudguards seen on most official sets. I was very tempted to go 8-wide since that would have made things a lot easier, but I like a challenge.

Above is the food-serving side of the truck. It has a large panel that can swing upwards to reveal a counter and a serving window. The silver 1x1 round plate is a handle so the door can be lifted easily (without it, it is really difficult to open since the panel is flush with the wall). The 2x4 light blue gray tile is for the menu.

This is what I call "the boring side" of the truck. It's not really boring, but it is a bit plain. I tried to add as much detail as I could. There's a fuel tank panel and some vents. I also added that ridge, though I wish I could continue it down the entire length of the truck. The door is one of the things that bugs me the most. Unfortunately Lego doesn't make a door in quite the style seen on these trucks. I was debating whether to have a door at all.

The back of the truck is one of the first things I worked on. Those vents are one of the most distinctive things about a food truck, so I knew that if I couldn't get that to look right, I might as well not do it.

Here's the serving side with the panel open. The display area was inspired by a similar display in the Winter Village Bakery set. There's also hot water and coffee dispensers on the right. Oh, and say "hi" to the chef!

The skylights are another detail that help make a food truck a food truck. This build was inspired by the roof door of the Fire Brigade modular building. Now if only Lego made those glass pieces in trans blue, it'd be perfect! C'mon Lego, make me happy!

You can take off the skylights to access the cooking area of the truck. I tried to make it as easy as possible to remove, but it can be a little difficult.

Here's the best shot I could get of the cooking area. I had to remove a bit of the walls to get a clear shot, but you can see that this truck is equipped with a stove, oven, grill, sink, cabinet, shelf, and a place to hang a frying pan.

"I'll take one brickwurst, please."
"That'll be one hundred bucks."
The counter is a little high, but I think it still works.

Here's a quick height comparison to the bus from the City Public Transport Station set. I think the truck fits in rather well.

Is the LDD file available? Would love to know which pieces I need to gather before taking a shot at building this. Great creation! Thanks!

This is spectacular!!! I really want the instructions for it. Also, for the "boring" side, why not add a brick built (no stickers please) graphic?

This is extremely creative! I think this is one of the best first MOCs I've seen. If you use the Extended Brick set in LDD almost all of your bricks are available. This should be easy enough to digitize. BTW, welcome to the LEGO Cities group. Regards, Eric.

I'm working on an LDD file. LDD doesn't quite have the same pieces and colors, but it should be close enough.
