This is my truck and chipper creation. You'll have to bear with me as i have crammed as much detail into this MOC as i possibly could. I am a Tree Surgeon and this would be my dream piece of kit. However i would not have it in red, it would probably be British Racing Green. First we see the Truck which is based on a Land Rover Defender/Discovery. This has an opening bonnet with a detailed (as much as it could be) engine inside. The Flat bed (with raised sides so the chippings don't go everywhere tips up to reveal storage space for all those handy tools. The roof of the cab lifts off to reveal 2 seats (there is only room for one though lol) and a steering wheel.
On to the Chipper. The back opens and closes to reveal the feeders (feeds branches into the grinding cogs). The nozzle twists so you can direcrt the chippings wherever you wish. There is also an opening hood which allows you to maintain and shrpen the grinding cogs.
Lastly meet the crew, two weilding chainsaws and one with a leaf blower all made by Stihl.
Anyway thats about it hope you like it (It's one of my favourite creations so far). OLet me know what you think would be great to hear your comments :)
P.S. There will be a Vignette using this creation followed by a little story. This should be posted on Sunday.
Thanks for visiting!
Oh and btw if the photos seem abit jumbled blame the very complicated uploader for not adding some, which meant reloading some. I wish they would make it a bit more straight forward to edit...i'm sure i'll get used to it in time though.
cool! the truck looks retro, the chipper powerful and efficient, nice tools and structure, and the crue pretty funny! did i get right that you intent on doing stories with it? if so, i can t wait! as i know, there aint no better joke subject, than our jobs! lol! great work de tomasso!
Cool. I want one! and i'm not even a tree surgeon, but i did used to work with one. Great details and tools. I love the chipper too. The new background works well, i need to get me one of those to improve my photos.
