Concept Truck and Trailor
This is my Custom Concept Truck and trailor.
About this creation
You'll have to bare with me here, there is a lot of detail crammed into this truck ;)

I've been wanting to build a truck and trailor for as long as i can remember, but never had the pieces available until recently (after several Bricklink orders). My Concept cars needed something to transport them between race tracks so this was the perfect opportunity to create the truck.

I have a couple of people to thank for giving me inspiration to build this, firstly Nick Barrett with his beautiful Massive Red Lorry and BrickOnWheels with all his superbly built trucks.

I wanted to blend a bit of technic with system bricks so i used the recent racing truck chassis as the basis for the truck. This made it quite tricky as the chassis was an odd number wide. Because of this the truck is 20 wide at the back and 18 wide at the front.

Anyway lets have a look at at it and i'll talk you through the many lttle details...

An overall view of the truck and trailor...







Do you like the stripes? I think they work quite well and make it look a bit different to most trucks.

Notice the hand of god for the steering.

Let's have a look at the truck on its own.

I really like the front view it looks like it means business.



Notice the working light bricks (Shame they're yellow) theses are activated using the gear stick in the cab.



The front grille opens to reveal the radiator.

Around to the back...

There are also red light bricks at the back for the brakes. Nothing cleverr to activate them , just a brick clicked next to the switch.



If you look closely at the back of the cab you might see a face. This was not intentional lol. I think it could be a lion, a king or maybe even jesus??



I quite like the brakes they look quite funky.

The flap with the mysterious face on lifts up to reveal the V8 engine, you're thinking now that that's not a lot of power for such a big vehicle, but there is more power to be revealed shortly.


The engine looks nice and futuristic.



The roof of the cab comes clean off to reveal the detailed interior.

Before we look inside let's have a look at the opening doors etc. It's about time as made opening doors on one of my vehicles and i have to thank my good friend Mortalswordsman for the help with these :)

Door open

And side open :)

The ladder thingy folds up...

and then down, for easyish access, this is quite crude and i could do better but i won't lol

A view from the top with the roof off and everything open. Notice the bed in the back. which explains why the cab is so lengthy.

The detailed Dashboard with built in sat nav and auto-pilot, i'm quite proud of this.


I like the seats too they look comfy even if they are a little too small.

Comes equiped with a widesreen TV and two unnamed games consoles for all your entertainment needs.



The bed section can be easily removed to reveal the engine. The trans blue things are hydrogen fuel cells which power electric motors in all six wheels.


Two of the fuel cells can be removed and look like this...

The seats section can also be removed to reveal the steering.

A shot with both sections removed.

What's this?...It's giant lego man showing of the working sun visors.


That's enough of the truck let's take a look at the trailor.



I really like the little windows on the top.



The front of the trailor is transparent so you can see the cars in the back.



The back looks quite mean and opens up.



If you want a closer look at the cars they are already on Moc pages under Custom Concept.





I used a section of my Monté Carlo track to create another tier so all of my 26 mini F1 cars can also be transported :)



One final shot of everything together.


Thanks for for taking the time to look at/read this, this moc took me about 2 months to build, but i did get distracted by other creations too.

You've spent this long viewing this you may as well spend another minute rating and commenting on this, it would be much appreciated.

Thanks

De Tomaso

Oh yes! This is wonderful - working lights and white stripes are always good on a big rig ;-) There's so many details to delight here, and you've excelled yourself on the interior! Unlike me, I see you didn't allow yourself to run out of the right colour bricks lol... and thank you for the mention, very kind.

This is just huge! You made a very unique design for your truck, I like the style you came up with. Sort of futuristic. And the functionality and details are great too, all of the opening parts and interior details are fantastic. This looks like a very involved project, way to go!

Tomaso this is absolutely stunning. I can't believe how well it's turned out. Thanks for the mention but this bad boy is all down to you. The details are staggering. I love the cab, the head lights ( and mechanism) are awesome too. But for me the trailer is the best part. The roof mech is so smoooooth. Your concepts are so cool and imaginative I only wish I could come up with some of these ideas. On my way back from jon's stag do in Bournemouth. My head hurts ;)

Here I am thinking I don't like trucks. Ha! I love everything about this; the studless construction, the colour scheme, the detailing, the functions. Its just one of those small(ish) models that you can find loads of stuff in and would never get bored of. Don't break this up.

Cool, so this is the creation you had to wait for those orders you were talking about. This is very good and outrageously huge! This is very cool and goes well with your concepts. My favourite part is the working lights, This is an awesome creation, And good job! You made this well :) 10/5

Quoting Lego Builder Man!! That's huge!! How many studs wide is it?? I suggest you to start building more real cars - it would make your skills even better in the long run. Concepts are alright, but you can build them in whatever shape you want. And since you can't build a real car however you want, it would force you, if you build real cars, to develop different skills and technics, and thus improving your skills even more. Still very amazing. P.S. I'm working on a Ferrari 430 Scuderia 16M...very difficult.
Lego for me is about creativity and fun, and i enjoy being creative by making my own concepts. I'm not saying i don't enjoy copying cars, but prefer to be original. Don't worry i will be making some replicas in the future, i already have four in mind and have 4 chassis built ready for production. Also if you read the details you will find out how wide this is :P

I really like all the detail in the dashboard and gamer consoles. And those hydrogen cells are cool, especially with the gas prices being 400 bucks a fill. And all those mini F1's made me laugh, now I can picture them all racing out the back like a swarm of bees.

Great truck & trailor, i think those stripes looks great, and like the engine, me myself have never been able to make engines for several reasons, and I like the fact you can get the cars + mini F1 cars in their, you should name it the multi-task truck:)

lots of attention to detai! Very nice, very good functionality and playability. It would make a good looking alt mode for a Transformer too! LOL!

P.S I'll be posting something quite similar in a few weeks, 6 months to build so far!

Great build. I think parts of the design are fantastic, parts not quite so good (front grill) but overall it looks brilliant. Better than that it looks like it could be built as a real truck, as all the detail has been well thought out. The trailer is my favourite bit. 5 Smily LEGO-heads : )
