Techrod 3
I think, many kids, one time must have dreamed being an ice-cream salesman, it must be the coolest job in the world...
About this creation
With this one, many adults may think the same thing!
Welcome to this page, I'm showing you my latest creation: Techrod 3, a wild ice cream truck, many, many studs, and it even has an ice-cream for a radiator!:



It's a six wheeled hotrod, with many bricks (2678) and a long, sleek, low appearance:



A picture from the back. I quite like the long fenders, look at those taillights:



Oh! Wait, taillights... but, did I saw any headlights?:



Well, there are some...:



Here you can see some technical detail. Operated in the cabine, off course. (6 gearwheels, the bottom left one is intended to be with the old style thoothed parts):



The engine, 16 cylinders in V, triple inlet manifold, and something of a compressor (an ice cream truck can't have enough power):



Technical detail of the drive line : engine, compressor, gearbox with forward-neutral-reverse, column change...(20 gearwheels in total):



The interior, you can see steering wheel, column change, clocks, operator for the headlights, in a plated inside, and some 'wooden' dashbord:



Picture with the door, with lock opened... O yes, it is the driveshaft you see diappearing underneath the bench:



The doors in the rear have the same locking system, the black thingy operates the hand-of-god steering opportunity:



Yes: steering, way important with four front wheels. Second axle turns at 50% of the front one:



Here you can see the solid front axles, suspension fits! (1 degree hinge!) steering is operated by pushrod!:



Second picture of the steering technical stuff, the blue gearwheels and axles, is an running-around-the-block solution for the orange pieces...just to make suspension has the full travel of one (technic) stud (15 gearwheels used: 4 pushrod, 7 round-the-block, 4 for hand-of-god). Chassis is showing also. Quite thin, only one stud, but you can see some of the many attachment pieces for the classic body. In the middle, you have one (technical) stud high, two wide technic bars, supported by 6 plate high classic pieces in the sides. I suppose that's sturdy enough:



I Scream Ice Cream lettering! Thank you very much Nick Barret! I've got the technique from your amazing moc: M.O. Round 7: Nick Barrett vs matt rowntRee: Cirque de Legoland :



The sides have both studs directed to the rear... A bit more work to commit, but it helps symmetry :-) :



Picture from the top : I'm also quite pleased with the front fenders, they 'include' the engine well. … And last two features, the clock or bell, as well as the cooler-fans are showing:



“high” speed fans in blue, they get their movement from the yellow parts, a shunt form the drive shaft... I love how the bell operates with those three decoration balls. (10 gearwheels make a total of
51 used in this car :-) ) :



The money shot!:



A complete flat bottom... No, the 8-thooth gearwheel for the hand-of-god reaches slightly lower... the only part... sigh...



Still remember how the complete build shows?:



Thank you very much for the visit, I wish you all a Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year

Technic aan de binnenkant en normale blokjes aan de buitenkant zijn en heerlijke combinatie. Een berg aan functies en dan ziet het er ook nog lekker uit van de buitenkant. Dit is denk ik toch wel mijn nieuwe favoriet van jou! Fijne feestdagen!

That is the coolest Icecream Truck I`ve ever seen, And I have to correct you Jeremy It`s a V-16 engine :-) And that Nick Barrett styled beautiful bodywork is really amazing.

An amazing feat of imagination and LDD design and engineering, Joost! If Deusenburg made a ice cream truck, it'd look just like this. Ice cream trucks always struck me as underpowered, but you remedied that with the blown V-12. Love all the little touches like the grill and fans, too.

Wow, usually I like to see things actually built but your LDD creation could not be ignored. This is great.
