Dump truck . Dump truckers of the world, unite! . This truck is the outcome of some ideas and desires. Read on if you want to know about them. I really wanted to figure out how to build these wings, flaps or whatever they're called. It was important to me to build it in minifig scale. The result was this dump truck. I hope I did it right. (Notice the grille tiles without groove on the roof. It's gonna be hard getting those off.) I also wanted to build a green truck. The lack of green tiles and cheese resulted in this ugly front. I really wish I had a 1x2 tile to replace this jumper (the one with a silver round plate). And some cheeses would fit nice on those uncovered studs. Also I wish the roof was studless. So many wishes and so little green pieces... I wanted to make a nice surface for the dump container. I've seen many versions so I really wanted to make my own. I figured it would look nice with this combination of tiles and plate undersides. This is the part of the truck I'm most pleased with although because of the complexity it was built with, most of the space inside was used and there is no unloading mechanism or opening doors and also the load is fake (built instead of being poured in). I would also like to use this opportunity to point out a very stressing problem. The different undersides of plates. Now see the next picture (zoom it to see what I mean). Yes, very disturbing. I decided to make the truck without license plates. Too bad for the right sign. I wish it could be a speed limit, but I've only got a 50 and that's too low. And now some more pictures. And just one for goodbye. ---- Behind the MOC ---- For those of You wondering about the container construction. This is the fake (brick built) load. The container with the load taken of. I know this picture isn't revealing much right now. How the walls are connected to the main construction. A bit messy, that's why it's eating so much space. Moving on to the walls. The walls are made of two separate parts. One with the tiles and the other with the plates. They are not holding to each other but instead they are, each on its own, attached to the main construction. The same is with the smaller walls (the rear one is also tilted on hinges). A picture with different parts taken of. End Thank you!
