Well, here's my newest creation, an American style classic truck. Usually and the most thing that I like is to build real life HOT cars, but also I like to change from time to time, so here it is, hope to enjoy it, thank you for visiting my page :)
About this creation
Not much to say about this creation, it's just I like those American style trucks so I decided to build one for myself to share it with you.
The most beautiful thing in those trucks that they are so huge, so tough, very heavy duty, and definitely have very impressive designs!
This one's design is based on some ideas from my mind and some inspirations from real life trucks and also LEGO trucks. So here're some pics that I hope you to like...

The engine: nothing much to say, just huge engine to this huge MONSTER :)
The interior: not much detailed but I add a working steering from the steering-wheel.
SWEET!! Looks like a real american big rig truck, only the trailer is missing. Maybe you should change the tires and wheels.
P.s. Please give some tips how to improve my le mans 1 and your comment. If you want I will send you my mlcad file and instruction pictures (2 versions + 1 stationcar version).

lets set aside contest, and bring in "challenge" in a challenge anyone can participate, therefore, no losers no top 3 and no winners, especially no fights. everyone will build in harmony. tell me what you think firas...
AAAaaawww MAN! So a challenge just means "this is an idea of something to make" no placing means no judging, means no competition means little total quality. You aren't going for anything...no goal...I could do that on my bedroom floor. Oh well...this is still the best group, even though I was looking forward to contests with regulations, you know, direct competition. A challenge isn't challenging if competition is nonexistant, in my opinion. But I don't run this club, so just think about having sanctioned tournaments in addition to overall 'building themes' or challenges. Okay guys? Thanks, please reply, -matthew-
Hey man, thanks a ton for the invitation to your car club. I will have to spend a few hours figuring out this new MOCpages, but it seems cool. I have a few creations almost ready and may post them sometime soon. I have a terrible confession to make...I tore the Toyota FJ Cruiser apart. It just wasn't working, I'd been at it for a month.
Dang! Somehow I keep missing your new posts. I promise, its nothing personal. This is amazing! The detail is superb, but you took it one step farther with the engine. That thing looks great! I see these so often on the highways that I forget how cool they really are. Have you ever seen some of the Volvo bigrig cabs? They are very streamlined and futuristic looking - not quite as muscular looking though. Nice job man! I've got a vew new creations I can send pics of if your interested. The list is on my homepage. Hapy holidays pal! Peace - Patrick
Merry Christmas Firas! I hope you've had a great time and got lots of, dare I say, LEGOs! I did get that light box I've been wanting for a while, so I'll be posting much more frequently. May the new year bring many more MOCs!
Merry Christmas to you too man! Thanks for the mezmorizing comment. Are you getting LEGOs for Christmas too? I already got mine XD. I got 100 new technic pieces! I'm thinking of adding somekind of instructions for tommorow like a Christmas treat, so which gun do you want?
Ya, I saw that you told Fed to use Macro. I took a look at it. I'm gonna get some more camera practice at Christmas, so, hopefully there will be a better picture quality. But, anyway, thanks for the comment, can't wait for more cars/trucks/motorcycles/snakes. See ya around. Peace!
thatsa daaamn nice truck you got there! You know, there is a not so old lego creator set with a red truck and, Iīve got to say that this is way better. I know itīs different types of trucks but, whatever. Itīs nice... Itīs nice...
Ya, I use photobooth for my pictures. You know, the built in camera thing on a mac laptop. I DO have a digital camera, but I'm still trying to get used to it and what not. But, I assure you, with my mocs getting more detailed, I'm gonna start using it. Peace!
I'm late again! 38 comments already? Shame on me!! Anyway, that's an insanely cool truck! It looks like a Kenworth, or maybe a Freightliner. The details are fantastic, especially the engine and the hood. As always, congratz on another awesome model! (Your Reventon is still the coolest one.) Keep it up!
Horay! : ) I was waiting for you to move to trucks! Looks like a proper Model Team one, and you can't get better than that! I wish I'd uploaded one I made but I broke it before I became a MOCpages member. It was nowhere near as good as this though. 9/10; needs more functionality to get a 10 but still one of the best creations in the large vehicles section. As always from you, a work of art : )
Well thanks. Now I know. I'll have to try making a model team someday in the future.

The master of cars, best car builder at MOCpages, . . . All that means in my opinion Firas Abu-Jabar. Your MOCs are fantastic, each one of them. I canīt belive how you are doind such things again and again. I mean look at all this details and so on. This is so awesome. P.S.: I just noticed that nearly every good builder posted a MOC today: Joris Blok, Sean Kenny, Sebeus , T Fett, you, Sir Sir Nadroj and last but not least me. Such a great day!
You sir, are a genius. That snarling grille, and that aggressive im-out-to-get-you look! That shiny black paintjob.... Those chromey details! The beuatiful knobbly tires and the tinted, squinchy windows! The rounded, curved fenders! All the work of a pure mastermind, Firas. The lisence plate is a nice touch! And Dylan, I think that when it comes to large scale cars on MOCPAGES, it's Firas, Apple, and you. I'm alful at large-scale. When I have a lot of large-scale car legos someday, I'll only be able to dream of skills like that. Haveth thou skill? Thou hast, and much! I can't help but grin when I see this! For LUGnuts, right?? This is your best yet! I'll have to look at the interior.... Because I haven't looked it over very well! I can just glance at it and think "That Firas dude has a knack for large-scale". The grille is very smooth. The smokestacks and high, chromey, and soo impressive! Your best and biggest ( bigger than the Rolls?) and most impressive creation ever. EVER! Builders around the world, TLC, bow down before thee Firas, when you make a masterpiece and show it you magically dominate truck building, you brain of piled talent for lego bricking, you genius you!! I love this creation!! I feel faint... Before I faint from exhasution, typing, and breath, I hafta tell you:... A couch ter sit on, and er truck, ter pull stuff with! Once again, Firas, a masterpiece.... I'm melodramatically touched by the way you finished this work of black art. 5/5, and when you make another work, please notify me, as I shouldn't pass out.... Once again, and lastly, great work, Firas. I'm impressed.
Yup. That's a semi truck. Lots of 'stuff' on the outside. Cool. And I might be emailing you some questions, particularly about photography. Sorry guys, my Toyota FJ Cruiser ain't done yet, not for a while. I got distracted with a cool little 8 wide, it will be posted as soon as I get some photography tips. ps. Firas, what does model team mean? Thanks, matthew
Yeah, but can it transform into a thirty foot tall robot? hahaha just kidding. This is really impressive. The detail work is great (For some reason the windshield wipers really stood out... maybe cause I need to get mine changed? ...anyway). I think it's some of your best work yet. ~ Chris.
great job, the window cleaners (I don't know the English word) are very nice, you did a great job on the opening front, I like the engine, the truck has a great shape, I would say you didn't forget a single detail, when looking at it from a (small) distance it looks like a real one, great job on this one, keep it up
