About this creation
The model
A "small" creation of mine. A tow truck similar to those of Sariel and M_longer.
The color blue is chosen because it's quite an unusual one with large models like these (red and black are more common), next a little yellow line is added to make some contrast.

A word or two about the functions:
The tow truck is half IR and half control'd by switches.
The IR functions are:
- Drive (back/forward, steering)
Axle 1 and 2 are steered
Axle 3 and 4 are driven
- Crane (all components)

Manually we have a motorized compressor witch powers the stabilizers and the yoke. A switch for general lights and one for the warning lights, then there's a fourth switch for the wheel lift.

Non-motorized are opening doors and hood, and full solid axle suspension on all of the axles.

General:
- 70 cm long
- 16 cm wide
- 22 cm tall (boom down)
- 79 cm tall (boom up)
- 5.5 kg of lego
- 2 XL motors
- 7 M motors
- 4 PF lights
- 5 Light bulbs
- Almost 8 meters of electrical wire
- 1 compressor pump (new style)
- 3 pneumatic switches
- 7 pneumatic cylinders

Quoting Paul McKeever III What is model team?
Model team refers to a building style. A good example is 5580. If you would like more examples just search for 'lego model team' in google.
