Scrap Lorry
... for the carrying and tipping of scrap. The lorry itself is not scrap. Possibly.
About this creation

A 12-wide model of a 4-axle solid tipper - no particular truck, I tend to do my own styling with this kind of thing.



It has progressive rate steering for the front two axles, controllable from the steering wheel or by Hand Of God via the exhaust.



And of course it tips, with an extremely old-fashioned mechanism that works very well, whatever load you put in it.



The doors open, and so they should - without the use of hinge pieces to achieve a smooth action and a good fit. I'm fussy about that sort of thing...



I'm not that fussy about truck interiors...



Mmmm, lovely gears...



'HEY! Don't put that there!'



'Now I've got to pick it all up!'



'COME BACK HERE!!'



Nope, he's gone.



Please direct all hate mail for what follows to Mr. DeTomaso Pantera...

Red Lorry, Yellow Lorry...



Red Lorry...



Yellow Lorr- that's not even a lorry. Enough!

This build is great too! Never ever would I use those wheels, but you make me reconsider this… :-) Nice build with very nice details and functionality!

Good mix of System and Technic. Never been good with Technic myself, but always admire those who can work with it. Good job on the truck, it looks great. Good mix of humor on the web page too.

Nick, I've been away for a bit, love this build! The steering is awesome, but I think it is the simplicity that really brings it together! Great style. Chris

Love the front part and how you used those old turn-tables. Your vintage style is really magic. Could you make a time machine for us to go back when we were kids?...

So impressive the way you make this look so neat on such a small scale whilst fitting the mechanisms in as well. I especially like to see the rack 'n' pinion mechanism used for the tipper. Thanks for sharing !

Excellent builds Nick. I love the scrap lorry, it looks great and the functions are brilliant for such a small moc. That little digger is really cool too. I heard on the grapevine that you might be coming to Bristol soon. I would love to meet up.

Thanks for reminding me of the Technic Ideas book. I've just been leafing throught my 8889 version over lunch. I also spotted the blue version of your digger on the back page of some old Technic instructions. Happy days! :)

So many lorries, so little time. This ones great, so many cool functions and such a clean look (for a scrap truck, especially) I like the bucket, and those danger stripes on the back. The cabins neat too, and those doors are very clever. And the red lorry yellow lorry... I've heard that before somewhere. =P

Wow, how can you be so quick? Fantastic lorry - to put all those functions in a rather small MOC like this and keep it this good-looking is real craftsmanship. I am amazed!
  September 19, 2012
I like these MOCs a lot! They remind me of when Technic was known as Expert Builder. These all look fun to play with too. Good job!

Quoting Tom Simon Just a little triffle between Olympic rounds? I thought you said you have a day job. Oh wait, you're management now. You must have all the time in the world. ;^} I admit I don't get how the corners of the doors avoid pushing against the front frame of the cab.
Hi Tom. Yeah, it's all beer and skittles.... there's a half plate wide shutline at the front of the doors to provide clearance; it's why the front is SNOTted.

Quoting David Roberts That's a great looking truck. Very neat & tidy. I like the way that you've used the studs for texture on the back and used the rack & pinion for tipping. If it works, why do something more complicated? Is the digger based on a kit from the late 70s/early 80s? The other wagons are impressive too. The last photos reminded me of an episode of Radio4's "Cabin Pressure": http://johnfinnemore.blogspot.co.uk/2012/04/yellow-car-full-rules.html
Thanks David. That digger comes from the 8888 idea book, full of 80s goodness.

Beautiful build, the technical stuff is, as always, extremely well merged into the appearance of the vehicle. I also like your hinges, I rediscover a method I used 25 or so years ago :-)

Hey, that's a versatile cab design. (I'm not sure if that's what you brits call it?) We just had a 'lorry' of similar description deliver top soil to our property. The guy also had a nifty belt device that 'threw' out dirt to specific hard-to-reach areas! Cheers! :)

Red lorry, yellow lorry :-) looks like everybody loves it, no hate mail yet lol Love this truck as I do all of your creations. It's a nice size and I love the tippingdump section, it looks heavy duty! I have sent you a Flickr mail with a rather nice proposition for you to think about. Let me know what you think. More details to follow. Great to see you back in style Nick, we've missed you!
