Two years to get done (& still not finished), this truck has two drive Axles, walking beam suspension supported by two moc air ride springs, spring supported cab, motorized steering with swing axle & is trailer compatible!
About this creation
Pulling a Flat bed.
It bends like a real flatbed & the rubber band suspension cooperates with its angle, the rcx is to compress the suspension a little.
This is the motor that controls the steering, the cab fits snuggly over it.
Here is the axle that connects from the drive motor to the double gearbox which is supported by two moc air springs. Forget about the screws you see there, at first the motor was so strong the gearbox needed them to stay together, but now I slightly redesign it so the screws are no longer needed.
The cab if only I had one more windshield!
Back view of cab you can see the two air springs.
geuss what this is
Car carrying anyone? The truck platform plus the trailer can carry at least seven rcx (which would be also minifig scale) sized cars & the entire second level is collapsible.
The Suspension at work
I am aware that it needs more detail i'll have to order some parts & the power functions would be better than an rcx.
Quoting Ralph Savelsberg
It's not bad, but I think it's more than a little pretentious to call it the best minifig scale truck. There are many nicer models out there and in my opinion it's too big for minifigs anyway. I am impressed by the fact that you're making a model this small with powered steering and drive.
Thank you for your comment I so glad you gave me advice & insight, currently I've made the truck a bit smaller & I'm working on some better detail(see the volvo vn body in my creations) I will post my currrent design on the truck soon
