Farm Truck

    Newer Older

    I'd been thinking for a while that I need to try and rebuild the truck from my old zombie hunt dio. Until now, it was the only minifig-scale modern vehicle I’d built since I was a kid. I was quite proud of it, despite some problematic geometry. I never buckled down to reengineer it, however, until meeting with some of the folks in the newly founded AFOLOKC a couple weeks ago (I’ve finally found a LUG!), who are planning a train-style layout.

    We’re gonna need plenty of ‘ordinary’ vehicles, so I figured I’d try my hand. What better place to start than something I’ve effectively done before?

    The basics of the nose and bed are taken from my study of my old photos, but most of the rest is effectively new, partially because I couldn’t tell it all from the pictures, and partially to make the geometry actually work.

    I'm very happy with it. Now I've just gotta figure out some more compact vehicles...

      Very simple, yet perfect.

      I like the subtle SNOTwork in the front especially. It looks deceptively simple.

      Yeah, I remember this guy, or at least his predecessor. Looks better pre-apocalypse.

      It's not too terribly complicated. Not exactly TLG standard, though.

      I'm trying to decide if I want to keep the dark tan bed & sideboards or normal tan. Ordinary tan would allow me to put in the broken board (1x4 tiles don't come in dk tan), but dark tan is fun, if for no other reason than its being different.

      I remember Zombie Hunt! Great re-build.

      I like the shape and color, the bumpers are awesome too. I don't think I'm feelin' it with the rear fenders though, just mudflaps would be adequate, as well as accurate, I think.
      I do really like the mirrors.

      I've really enjoyed the challenge of creating compact real-world vehicles, too. Nicely done on this one.

      Well, this one came out well, but my attempts at smaller, less country-bumpkin-style cars have been far less successful. Now I know why Lego always defaults to those ugly tiny wheels...

      I'll get around to posting more photos eventually.
