About this creation


This heavy road construction convoy consists of a 4-axle American-style long hood dump truck, a 5-axle low loader trailer and a medium-seized excavator. It is built in my preferred building style which a lot of other builders have called ‘old-school’, ‘retro’ or ‘80s or 90s style’.

The cassis of the dump truck is 7-wide, its cabin 5-wide. The trailer is 8-wide for over-seized construction machinery. The excavator’s chassis is 7-wide based on the treads; its main body is 6-studs-wide.

On some of the pictures, I have played with the light effects with the help of pain.net. That gave them a nice, more animated and dynamic touch in comparison to the unaltered photos.
You can see it nicely on this lateral view of just the dump truck:




Just the excavator, 'animated' style:


Here are some conventional pictures of the set:










A look underneath the 5-axle low loader trailer:


Finally, a direct comparison of the whole convoy (normal pictures & drawing style):



Thanks for looking!
Ratings, comments and constructive criticism are appreciated:-)

Best regards,

Hey Steffen, na das sind ja coole Neuigkeiten. Hab da noch reichlich Fahrzeuge und auch zwei Hochhäuser XD *hint hint* Ich kann ja mangels Modulbauweise leider nicht ganz soviel mitbringen. Bei mir wirds nur ein kleiner (2x3 32er Platten) Auschnitt meiner City sein, den ich mitbringe und natürlich noch einen ganzen Haufen Fahrzeuge ;) Wird bestimmt super euer Gemeinschaftslayout. Ich freu mich schon sehr auf die Ausstellung. Viele liebe Grüße zurück, Sven

It's awesome that you've put together a complete package with this MOC! I like how the dump truck looks with the trailer behind it (maybe the excavator could be a little bigger next time xD) I also really like your overall scale a lot too!

Nice! The edited pictures look like something out of The LEGO Movie. I'd love to see this as a set!

A very nice Construction set! Truck and trailer looks great together and you made good use of the vintage door on the excavator. I remember I had a delivery truck using the same doors.

Magnificent creation. The dump truck reminds me of the big Autocar coal trucks used in Mcdowell Co. WV. where I was raised. I saw them every day going to and from the mines. BOAJEWD. and keep on brickin.
