After a couple of weeks of building, I can now finally present the latest version of my Mobile Service Station. During transport it looks like an ordinary highway rig. The trailer can transform into a Shell station with fuel pumps, car
wash, car shop and a small shop
The truck itself is 51 studs long (5 shorter than the last version) and weights 1.2kg. I have tried to give it some softer lines and focused on the small details that were ignored in the earlier versions.
The engine is a V12 with some discrete chrome details. The interior has both supportive seats, foot pedals and a laptop. The doors open like traditional doors... well, almost. The back folds out giving a couple of rooms: A sleeping room and a kitchen. There are some computer screens in honor of the earlier versions where that was in the trailer. The coupling is new with a better stability and is placed more naturally (The earlier version was as far back as possible)
The station is 97 studs long, weights 3.6kg and is filled with functions. The shop has a red panic-button which makes a screen lift up to protect the shop assistant (spring released like functions in the old West theme). Many functions are controlled from the rear where every of the nine holes power a function. The cargo room stores five crates. The brushes in the car wash are powered by a pull-back motor. The floor is lifted and tool rag pushed to the side in order to give access to the car shop.
