Alternate model made from pieces found in set 7803 - Jeep
About this creation
My 8 year old son recently got this little LEGOŽ Creator set as a favor at a birthday party. The set is one of the smallest Creator sets I have seen. It comes packaged only in a poly-bag, no box. According to the Brickset database, there are only 38 pieces. I was therefore surprised the other day when I came home and he had made this alternate model from that set.
He calls it a "Mining Truck." From the looks of it, it is a strong, sturdy truck with powerful lights, which are no doubt useful when driving the mining roads. He tells me it has a powerful blade at the front to move the loose dirt out of the way. He further notes that it has four gas tanks so it can go deep within the mine.
Excellent. This is a brilliant alternate especially for someone so young- very creative. Would you guys consider joining my new group - father and son lego group? Its perfect for creations like this. Thanks for commenting on my son's creation :).
This is a cool little truck! I had a look at the original model and to come up with something neat with such basic bricks is quite a challenge! Considering this your son has done very well. You have a talented LEGO building family.
