Euro 5 Volvo FH520 Australia Post Prime Mover
Here is my 8-wide Euro 5 Volvo FH520 Australia Post Prime Mover. I wanted to make another truck for a while and thought this one would do nicely. Enjoy!

A very realistic truck! And that on such a small scale. Impressive. Did you make the head lights orange on purpose? Regards,

Excellent truck! I really like the brickbuilt text on the trailer, and I like how you made the connection of the trailer to the truck. And last, when will we see a new build from you?

Excellent truck. Instantly recognisable as a Volvo. Really like how you did the logo on the trailer and the back doors. Top work!

Cool, you really got close to the original with this one. I really like the lettering, especially considering that you only used bricks for it (no plates!). Great job! :-))

Nice truck, I like how you made the wheels different for the front then the back. Good job on the lettering and rear door. I personally would have made the truck 10 wide, but even 8 wide is hard to fit into most group town displays! Nice.

Somehow missed this - really an awesome design, the lettering is wonderful! Same for the frontend. And I like that you made it 8w - in my view the better choise for a minifig scale truck.

Thanks Aden and Marcel! There were quite a few building sessions gone into this, especially to touch up sections and refine the detailing.

the truck is awesome and the sign on the side makes it even cooler! You sure must have spent a lot of time making this big thing! :D

Nice truck, and very well proportioned.

This looks great, especially with the brick-built sign writing. I like the detailing of the back doors of the trailer too. The tractor unit looks very like the original and seems far more like the scale that mini-figs should be driving, both in width and height, compared to Lego's offerings. Excellent MOC.

Thanks MS and Larry! The inside of the trailer is not really accessible, there was alot of part improvisation towards the end of the build...

Definitely your best yet! The lettering on the side is very impressive considering the scale, terrific job!

Brilliant. The details are excellent and I love how you created the lettering - very accurate to the original. Really like the back of the trailer. I would be very tempted to turn this into a race car transporter and build some 6 wide cars for the trailer.
