Peterbilt 379 Century Rotator
1:13 scaled Peterbilt with Century 1075 rotator in 1:13
About this creation


Many of you know that I have a weakspot for Peterbilt trucks. A big rotator towtruck on a Peterbilt chassis had been on my mind for a while, but as it is a massive project it never came to life really. A while ago after having done some extensive research on the web and contacting some manufacturers, I started work on this massive 1:13 scaled machine. Although a big part of the truck resembles a lot of my earlier work I still tried to add a bit more detail and some minor improvements. The rotator body itself was completely new to me. I have built wreckers before, but a rotator was a new challenge. I choose the century 1075 construction by Miller Industries. They were so kind to supply me some good reference pictures to make the body on the detail level I desired. Specs of a setup like this you can see here:

The Lego replica is 93 cm (36.6 inch) in length, and has a rotating extendable crane with 4 wired winches. Another winch is located on the tow boom. The outriggers can be put out for demonstrating poses together with functional doors and tooling. The whole thing clocks in at almost 9 kg, and about 10.000 pieces of Lego.
There is a big chance you can see this truck live at Legoworld 2013 in Utrecht, The Netherlands, world’s biggest Lego event. Hope you like it!

What an amazing build. The shaping is so perfect. I love the color choices as well. Nice use of all the chrome parts, really brings this thing to life. At first glance, I thought I was looking at a reference photo and not your actual MOC. Really turned out well.

Thnx for all your compliments. The crane is extendable but not powered. In real life it has two additional stages, but i did only one. The model is only used for display so no real reason for power there.

Looks stunning. How many stages in the boom? Also is it all fully functioning? If so, how is it powered? I myself have been struggling for months to build a 3 stage extending boom that is functional but also looks acceptable in the smaller scale afforded by the 8285 set wheels. So far I've drawn a blank and am very much stuck in WIP land. I'd love to see more detail shots of your rotator in extended mode. Cheers Andy.

Incredible work! A perfect truck as always, if it was any better, it would be impossible to tell it's made out of LEGO, which is already incredibly difficult to.
