Farm Truck

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...
