Hi! I bring you yet another cart in 4 wide. Another ... But, hey, this one has something different, it's a truck! It is the first time I build one, and the idea came to me when I purchased the Euro Truck Simulator 2. Initially wanted to do something simple, maybe a truck of Andy Motors, but I chose to make a replica of a real truck, and nothing better than my favorite truck, the Renault Magnum :)
It has a replica of the exhaust outlet, mirrors, some quite good details, and what fascinates me, the space between the cabin and the rest of the truck. Here are some photos:
For the first time, one of my LEGO creations appears at the main page of MOCpages as "popular today" (29th april 2013). Nice!
If you like my Renault Magnum replica, comment and rate!
I used to drive trucks for a living and while i didn't drive this one, i do know it rather well having met it in several of the terminals i serviced. For the scale the details are extremely accurate, you captured the almost exact look of this truck! All it really needs is a nice trailer in matching colors to pull :-) I don't know if you know this, but truckers lore says that this truck is a bit eerie to drive. When turning corners, the cab feels like it continues in a straight line for a second or so after you turn the steering wheel, because of the very large air cushion bellow between the cab and undercarriage. Don't know if it's true though, as mentioned i have never personally driven it :-)
