Cars and Trucks
Here are 2 Semi's I created using slightly
modified 3442 and 2148 kits for the cabs
and trailers I created to match the cabs.
These sets are the only mini-fig scale vehicles
that I have found recently that I like and
feel that closely resemble something I like.
The primary changes to the cabs were to the
front bumper to add guide sticks (don't know
the official name but they give drivers a
referance point so they don't run into things
which of course is very important in a LEGO® world. I also added the two antenas to the
top thanks to pictures on Larry Pieniazek's site.
The Yellow trailer is a refridgerated unit.
I tried a couple of different things to try
and simulate doors on the trailers. The red
trailer is supposed to simulate swing doors
while the yellow is supposed to simulate
This is my attempt at a semi that would be
used more for local runs. This ended up looking
a little like Larry Pieniazek's "Mack" semi. This one is somewhat
different in the front but there are similarities.
This is an armored truck that I tried to
model along the lines of "Brinks"
trucks. I was origionally inspired when I
saw Tom Duggan's 6 wide Fire Engines which I just love. I
just had to try a 6 wide vehicle and this
is what I came up with. I am fairly happy
with the model especially with the rear doors.
Something, I can't decide what yet, makes
me unhappy with this model so I will probably
go back to it again sometime.
Here is an attempt at a fork lift. Nothing
special but it works.
Obviously during shooting Timmy got on the
nerves of at least one of our drivers.
Anyone know any good Truck Drivers? Please
call 555-DRIV if interested in a good high
paying job driving all over the country in
a spacious 15 inch semi.
