Shell Tow Truck (6628 revisited)
The one category I wanted to, but didn't get a chance to build for in the MocAthalon was the reworking of a classic set. Here is what I would have done - a remake of the classic set 6628 (see final picture for reference).

Quoting Andy L I had this set as a child and I remember being annoyed that it never came with a mini figure. Glad to see that your one does. Your reworking is superb. Looks great in six wide. The technic pieces look good. I also really like the rear lights and front grill. Top work!
Had a feeling this would be the one you liked!

Another set that I would like to have owned as a child. I agree with other comments that the Technic parts on the crane work really well.

Like Barto stated... the technic pieces were a 'good call', especially for a tow truck! :)

If nothing else, although this isn't the case, it's nice to be reminded of where some bits that I occasionally see originally came from. This version looks like it could actually tow something.

I'll be honest, I prefer the Classic 4-wide charm of the original. Yours does have some more details and functionality going for it, though.

Cool. I think it's got just enough bulk now to actually be a tow truck. I'm actually hosting a in The Contest Group with the theme of Post-MocAthalon for people to at least have the glory of showing off their ideas for categories from the MocAthalon if they couldn't use them for a multitude of reasons. I wish I could have gotten my original redesign to actually work. Trying to redesign 10123 Cloud City was too ambitious; at least for now. I ran out of peices fairly early just for one of a great deal of sections I would have had to build.

Quoting Mihe Stonee this was a nice one ! and your version is still cool in 6 wide ;-) !
6 wide seemed right for a truck.

Quoting matt rowntree Cute little upgrade! I don't remember that set and did't see it in any of my old catalogs from '82 on. I don't believe that Lego sold that one here in the States. Weird. I would have bought this one easily with my "pocket change", especially your version. ;)
It's actually from 1981 (http://www.brickset.com/detail/?set=6628-1). This set for some reason really stuck in my memory. I remember getting it as a small present one summer holiday and learning how to make it from memory. It was odd in that it came without a mini-fig, when it was clearly designed for one.

Quoting Starscream Soundwave Very cool. You captured the feel of the original set, whilst creating something new.
Thanks, that's the real challenge with these remakes.
