Hi there, this is my minifig impression of a non-existing transport company, named Hooghuis Transport. When I used to play with my brothers, we all made up a mature name, and mine was Hooghuis (I don't remember why). We played al sorts of things with mainly cars and LEGO, amongst which our own transportation company (worship @ our daddy :-). So here's what one of the company's assets could have looked like, enjoy:
Check out that Michelin mascottes, just above that light blue sun blind!
Fully loaded truck. Look at those antenna's, orange flashing lights and the top and side spoilers:
This truck has air suspension.
The driver has all the luxury he can wish ;-). I put the steering wheel in horizontally and the gear handle on the dash. Also, check out that third mirror for the dead angle:
Here you can see the trailer connections:
And the cooled trailer itself:
This is the whole combination, do you like it?
Currently, it is transporting a truckload of soft drinks:
The load is easily unloaded with the multifunctional loading bridge:
The truck at work (since that's what it's made for). Check out that lazy driver!
I like it!
Hope you like it too! Feel free to comment - also feedback for future improvements!
The lettering is awesome! I love the way you did that without using complicated techniques - like the inclusion of cheese slopes that so many others use. This is beautifully designed, but with simple means - great! I also am huge fan of the lifting platform on your trailer - very realistic!
I only would have gone for a 7-wide construction for the semi. But thatīs just a personal preference. Best regards, Steffen
