Scania R124 Tipper
Scania R124 tipper. 12 studs wide with motorised driving and steering.
About this creation
Ever since I built the 1:13 scale MAN truck which I never finished, I wanted to build another truck, twelve studs wide, because I knew I'd be able to complete it at that scale, and I finally got around to it at the beginning of June. I built the chassis with the intention of the model being just a smaller version of the old one - a MAN tipper - but then I built the cab and I wasn't happy with the result. It looked too low or too narrow or something, so I decided to remove the cab and make it a Scania instead. I extended the chassis by a couple of studs, and then built the cab. That was the easy part. In the past I had built a Scania R124 truck twelve studs wide so I knew what I was doing (If I can find the photos I have of it I'll try and get them scanned and post them on the site).
After building the cab, I began work on the tipping part. It's usually very easy to make but this time I didn't have any room for the pneumatic pipes - not something you'd expect to take up a lot of room. Whichever way I put them they either got in the way of the axle or just sat underneath the tipping part and prevented it from lying flat. Eventually I gave up on the tipping idea and decided to go for a flatbed with a crane, so I searched for some pictures on the Scania website. Unfortunately there were very few, and only of one type, and I couldn't see behind the cab, but I tried anyway. There had to be outriggers as well, which complicated matters, as I didn't have much room. In the end I decided against having a crane as well.
After lengthy searching I couldn't find anything to put on the back than a tipper or a crane with a flatbed, so I went for a tipper which doesn't function.The fuel tanks on each side house the motors. The old motor drives the truck, while the mini-motor controls the steering.

I like how you have sculpted the roof of the cab and played with the lines along the side of the whole truck. Great Model. I didn't find many Scanias when searching MOCPages. This one came up and sure desirve some attention.

With a bit of editing, you can make this into a MMRL of some kind.
