My latest creation is this 1:15 scaled Peterbilt 379 lowrider, with fitting 40ft Mac enddump trailer. The whole thing is 100% genuine Lego, including retrofitted electroplated bricks, so true chrome. Everything has full detail including lowered chassis, C15 engine, and cabin interior. It took me about 5 weeks of work on it.

Same picture with 'ghostview of the engine (the hood is tiltable as well,but i like making these type of pictures in Photoshop:

And with the trailer:

And the rear view. I would have liked the tiles on the trailer all chromed, but it is quite expensive. It would look marvelous though i think.

Thanks for your comments!

It is my build from scratch, like all my creations. I think like most of us here, i don't like building standard stuff.

Indeed, I guess that origins after the war when Mack trucks were a common sight in Holland. They are more or less a synonym for USA trucks here.
Peterbilt and Kenworth are less known on avarage. I am a big Peterbilt enthusiast though.

So when are going to see a Cruiseliner, Superliner or Pinnacle Rawhide?

Well, on my todo list is an Australian Bicentennial Mack Superliner. One of the late 80's limited edition ones. Those are great trucks.

Wow... that's made up of Lego bricks? That looks so cool!
I don't know what else to say but... cool! I wish my kit-based rigs would turn out that nice. B)
