After building 'Thor' a Scania 142 V8 from the 80's,i thought it would be nice to build another slighlty younger classic Scania from the 3 series. What else could that be then one of my all time favorite trucks: the 143 Streamline V8.
The 1:13 Lego version has about 4000 to 4500 bricks and has a weight of around 4.2 kg.
It took me about 2 months to build. It has a higlhy detailled chassis with modelled air suspension, differentials and v8 engine.
The cabin can be tilted, the doors can be opened. The bullbar can be lowered in order to tilt the cabin. It has US style exhausts, composed of retrofitted chromed 3941 round bricks. Other chromed parts are the classic old Technic wheels, lights, and engine parts.
Another great truck, you are really good at these! By the way, do you think you could make a MOC demonstrating how you make your trailer attach points? I plan to build an 18 wheeler at some point and have a concept for the trailer hitch but would love some other ideas.
