SHELL CORPORATION WANTED THE 2011 TRUCK TO BE RADICALLY DIFFERENT FOR 2011. INDEED THE TRUCK DESIGN WAS COMPLETELY OVERHAULED FOR 2011. THE NEW SHELL 2011 TRUCK IS ALSO CALLED THE 'TRANSPORT' MUCH LIKE THE HONDA 'PASSPORT'. THE GOAL FOR 2011 WAS TO BRING THE SHELL TRUCKS INTO THE 21ST CENTURY. MY TRUCKS HAVE ALWAYS DEVIATED A LOT FROM THEIR LEGO OFFICIAL TRUCK COUNTERPARTS. THIS TIME SHELL WANTED TO BUILD A PICKUP THAT ACTUALLY LOOKED LIKE A LEGO OFFICIAL TRUCK OF THE NEW KIND. THAT MEANT THAT SHELL COMPANY WOULD HAVE TO USE LEGO BASES FOR THE FIRST TIME, IN FACT SHELL HAD ALWAYS BUILT TRUCKS FROM SCRATCH. THE TRUCK BASICALLY LOOKS LIKE MANY OTHER NEWER LEGO TRUCKS HERE ON MOCPAGES, BUT OF COURSE RETAINED A LOT OF THE SHELL COMPANY AMENITIES MINIFIGURES HAVE COME TO EXPECT FROM SHELL COMPANY.
About this creation


THE SIDE OF THE TRUCK. THIS IS WHAT I LIKED VERY MUCH OF THE TRUCK. YOU CAN SEE THE 'TRANSPORT' LOGO BELOW THE DOOR. THE CABIN LOOKS MUCH FLATTER THAN BEFORE. THE WHEELS ARE FLUSH WITH THE MUDGUARDS BECAUSE I USED VINTAGE SHORT LEGO AXELS INSTEAD OF THE NEWER WIDER ONES. THIS IS THE FIRST TIME THAT I USE A LEGO BASE TO BUILD A TRUCK. I USED THE NEW GENERATION GREY BASE ALONG WITH THE GREY MOULDINGS.



THE FRONT OF THE TRUCK IS RADICALLY DIFFERENT THAN BEFORE. THIS WAS THE HARDEST PART OF THE TRUCK TO BUILD. I WANTED TO DO AWAY WITH THE GRILLS, BUT AT THE SAME TIME NEEDED FOR THE FRONT TO LOOK A BIT SPORTY. THE HEADLIGHTS ARE GLASS COVERED BLUE-GREEN (LED LOOKING). THE BUMPER ON THE BOTTOM WAS DIFFICULT TO DO. THE END RESULT CAME OUT EXCELLENT, THE FRONT LOOKS LIKE A HONDA RIDGELINE I THINK,DEFINITELY VERY SPORTY.



BACK OF THE TRUCK IS COMPLETELY FLAT. THE REAR HEADLIGHTS ARE COMPLETELY FLUSH WITH THE BUMPER AND THE BOX DOOR.



THE BOX DOOR OPENS AND FLATTENS TO MAKE THE LOADING OF CARGO EASIER.



THE INTERIOR IS WAY BETTER THAN 2010. THE STEERING WHEEL ASSEMBLY WAS COMPLETELY CUSTOM REDONE FOR 2011. THE NEW STEERING WHEEL IS OVERSIZED. BOTH THE DASHBOARD AND THE STEERING WHEEL ARE CONNECTED AND CAN MOVE UP AND DOWN. YOU CAN ALSO SEE THAT THE TRUCK AS A REAL AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION PLACED ON THE TOP. THIS ARE REALLY AMAZING CHANGES FROM 2010.



THE TRUCK HAS A GROOVY BLACK SEAT. THE SEATS ARE VERY DIFFERENT FROM BEFORE.



THE TRUCK FEATURES A HOOD THAT ACTUALLY OPENS FOR THE FIRST TIME. THE ONLY WAY I COULD DO IT WITHOUT RUINING THE LOOK OF THE TRUCK WAS TO JOIN THE HOOD WITH THE WINDSHIELD WHICH IN TURN IS ATTACHED TO THE ROOF OF THE TRUCK. THE HOOD WHEN CLOSED IS ACTUALLY ONLY PLACED ON TOP OF FLAT BRICKS THAT HAVE NO DOTS.



THE ENGINE WAS COMPLETELY OVERHAULED FOR 2011. THE TRUCK IS POWERED BY A ELECTRONICALLY FUEL-INJECTED MTRONSTAR ENGINE. THE RED PIECE ON TOP IS CALLED THE 'DISTRIBUTOR/PLUG' PART. THE DISTRIBUTOR/PLUG IS ATTACHED TO THAT ELECTRONIC LOOKING BRICK PIECE CALLED THE 'ELECTRONIC FUEL INJECTOR/COMPUTER' PART. THE RED LIGHT BRICK ON THE FRONT IS THE COOLANT RESERVOIR, AND THE BLACK BRICK THAT HAS A 'B' LOGO IS THE BATTERY. YOU CAN ALSO OBSERVE THAT THE STEERING WHEEL ASSEMBLY/DASHBOARD PARTS ARE INDEED CONNECTED DIRECTLY TO THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT, THIS IS COMPLETELY NEW FOR 2011.
