A "small" creation of mine. A tow truck similar to those of Sariel and M_longer.
The color blue is chosen because it's quite an unusual one with large models like these (red and black are more common), next a little yellow line is added to make some contrast.
A word or two about the functions:
The tow truck is half IR and half control'd by switches.
The IR functions are:
- Drive (back/forward, steering)
Axle 1 and 2 are steered
Axle 3 and 4 are driven
- Crane (all components)
Manually we have a motorized compressor witch powers the stabilizers and the yoke. A switch for general lights and one for the warning lights, then there's a fourth switch for the wheel lift.
Non-motorized are opening doors and hood, and full solid axle suspension on all of the axles.
