Dump Truck & Asphalt Spreader (31005)

About this creation
Man, I haven't been on here in ages. Dark ages, to be exact, and they're not over yet. But! I can see the plastic-y light at the end of the LEGO®-less tunnel! Soon...
I'm away from home and working with a reduced collection right now, and taking small, blurry pictures with my phone. Nonetheless, here's a model I made with Creator set 31005.

An asphalt spreader is used to lay new road surface, during either construction or repairs. It has a big hopper on the front to receive hot asphalt from a dump truck. Conveyors or augers carry the asphalt to the back of the vehicle (called the "screel", I think?), and distribute it into a flat sheet.
I was inspired to make this by (A) seeing one parked by the road a few weeks ago and (B) the selection of tires in the set.

Here's the machine putting down a new road of espresso chocolate asphalt. MMM!


Here are some views of the front and back of the truck and asphalt spreader:








A side-on view of the complete model:


This is a vanilla render made in POV-Ray via LeoCAD. Not sure I'll do much more with this. POV-Ray is cool, but I don't want to spend the time to learn all the lighting and stuff.


Edit 131112: I used L3P to make a better render of this. L3P is the middleman between LeoCAD and POV-Ray, and it does stuff like putting seams between the bricks and logos on the studs. Good, eh?

Quoting Nathanael Kuipers Cool! Great little alternates that fit perfectly together in this scene. Could you please add this to the group: "Alternate designs of a Creator"? Would make a great addition...
