M-42
About this creation
The m-42 is a 3 and a half ton cargo truck designed for the transport of military hardware and/or soldiers of the Andoran military. The design for this vehicle was inspired by the M-35 family of trucks designed and used by the American military. It is designed to be completely amphibious, just like the real M-35 seen in the video below.




Well, anyway, lets get back to the Lego's. Here are the pictures.


I'm using my trademarked truck front again, its going to be used a few more times before I completely cannibalize it.


I really like the wheel well, I think I did an awesome job on it myself.


The rear view mirror, this is pretty average comparatively.


Now were getting towards the back of the truck. Yes, before you even ask, I did make the canvas backing myself, I also taught myself how to use my moms sewing machine. :D


For some reason the angle I took this picture at made everything look all bent and distorted. I was going to make a joke about the license plate, but now I dont really wan't too, this picture pisses me off too much...


Here you see the tailgate down, it has a small ladder just in case you cant jump into the back like a normal person.


The back wheels, nothing that special here, but I was taking pictures of everything, so heres a picture of the wheels. YAY!!


The truck with the canvas taken off so you can see my frame.


Well, that does it people.

Quoting Lego 4 Life The truck is great! Can i build this on my LDD? i'll give you credit
sure man, i even made the truck front in LDD myself so i can make it again if i ever make another vehicle that needs a truck front like this.
Quoting Brad Young I like it! Where is the tarp from?
I made it myself out of a few scraps of cloth my mom had laying around her sewing room.

This is pretty cool! I really like it! Regarding your group: Divide and Conquer: First of all, thanks for the invitation. But I'm planning to leave the group. The reason is the following: Although I'm in winter break now, as the school starts, I get very busy and will not be able to contribute to your group. And in the "Rules" it says "...members will need to be on here every other day or so. You can't post once every week, contribute!" I think I will not be able to play well in you game. I'm really sorry. It looks fun, exciting and great game. However, the school work is the first priority. I was really happy when I got the invitation. I would have played in your group if I were a little younger with less HWs. But I'll come and check your MOCS regularly! Hey, come and look at my MOCs too! Again, thank you for your invitation.

Maybe I should do one with lego netting peices. I like this a lot, and could be handy, but an easy target for infantry, but big trucks are still super cool.

I am unaware as to who is in control of this in "conflict", however i would like to inform you that my countries flag is now on my home page and i would appreciate it if you were to add Talo's land layout to the map. Thank you in advance.

Awesome! The truck has a great design, and the fact that you made the canvas yourself makes it even cooler.
