Sometimes I ran into old technic lego models where I immediatley see an opportunity for revamping it. This is such a model. Easy and simple and I thought; "How should it look like with new technic Lego?".
You see it is still a simple technic lego model. The fun here is the pneumatic wing doors.
So for you experts out there, from where does this model originate??
Yeah, cool, I had built this one with original Technic parts, too :-)) It was one of my favourite models from the ideas books 8888 and 8889. The other one was the big blue long nose truck. I love the idea of building the old Technic stuff with studless beams. Great job! :-)) P.S.: I've made something similar with the 8845 Dune Buggy, but only with LDD.
I still have my copy of the edition of the Technic Ideas book that this comes from. I had to build it with a lever to make the doors work, as I had no pneumatics as a kid, 25 years ago. I think that this looks nice in the new, studless Technic beams.
... sorry to ruin the game ;), feel free to delete my comment. It's the only ideas book I had and this model was the best in the book that i had enough pieces to build. I remember a big 6 wheeler and i also built the motorbikes and maybe a hand/claw thing. Have not looked at the book for many years.
