6692 Reboot - Lego Yellow Truck
In days of old when Lego wheels were red and studded.
About this creation
This was actually my last build of 2013 but with life getting in the way I've only now just got around to posting it.
It's my reboot of the classic Lego truck set 6692.
6692 came out in 1983 and at the time I was never lucky enough to own it.
I've built the original with parts in my collection and only a couple of things are different. I only have grey hinges so the cab tilt hinge is the wrong colour and the doors on the back won't attach to the frame because the tabs have broken off, the trouble with well played parts, eh?
Also, the mini fig is different to the original but he's still mainly 80's.


My reboot is my usual 7 studs wide. Here you can see how much bigger it is compared to the original 4 wide.


Haven't used these red studded wheels in a very long time, I'm very pleased how they look on a more modern build.



My reboot has much of the same features as the original:

Opening doors on the cab and a roof that allows access.


The cab tilts forward. On mine a nice little engine is revealed, on the original the bottom part of the hinge is revealed...hardly worth it really but having the hinge in this set was a very useful addition to anyone's Lego collection.


The tractor unit on it's own. Just one smoke stack on this one to give it a more european look. The original set has 2.


The trailer's rear door is singular and flips up to allow access. The original has 2 barn style doors...actually, they're more like shutters. It also has flip down stabiliser legs to allow it to stand on it's own.


A big obvious difference is that mine can seat 2 mini figs and the original is just a typical 4-wide one man affair.


Well, thank you, Trucks. Take a bow!

And thank you for having a look.

Nice, a great looking remake of a classic set. The tilting cab and other details are nice, but the best part is really the styling of the truck, reboot or no, it looks great!

I so wanted this truck too as a kid, I wonder how much my mother would ve heard about yours if it had been the one offered on the shelves instead, xd, it rocks, by buying old collections, I now have plenty of these wheels, and been wandering how to best use them, the mix of vintage parts and new techniques is great, I love it, I like that you built both for comparison, it s really cool to see them side to side, great job Andy!

Quoting Dark Terror Glad to see you're still active, many of the great builders are not anymore... Firas Abu Jaber for example... Anyhow, I just visited your London ambulance page for probably the 10th time since I first saw it, 2 years ago. I read about your dad... I understand it may be to late to say something, however I feel I should. I am very sorry for your loss, I'm sure your father was a wonderful man had you loved him enough to dedicate a fantastic LEGO creation to him, then have that LEGO creation featured in a magazine. I wish you all the best, I'm sure you're just as upset as the day it happened. I apologize if I brought back unwanted memories, I just felt I should say something. Cheers, -Dark.
It's alright, D T. A lot of time has passed and it doesn't seem so raw now. He's still very much in my thoughts, but as the old saying goes, life goes on and he wouldn't want me to dwell on the past. I've since got married and have two lovely children so I have plenty to occupy myself with (as well as Lego of course). Thank you for the thought, it's very kind of you.

A good looking lorry. I like the details such as the air deflector on top and the handle on the back door. Good to see those studded hubs in use. I wonder what I could do with mine?

Haha, nice one. You've added some nice details. I also added my reboot a couple of weeks back. http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/376467

Very cool, you even used the 2x4 wheel holder bricks! :-)) The truck is much cooler in this scale. Great job! :-))

Apparently it is time to re-launch the old sets. It's really good, and great, that the cab, can seat two Minifigs.
