Peterbilt 362 Hay Truck 1:22

18 January 2014 - 06:47 AM

It's been a few months since my last build, and I wanted to start the new year with something fresh. I have never build a Peterbilt 362 cabover, and a Hay ride has always been on my wishlist. This type of truck is often used in that line of transport.

As always I have used Lego to create the model. The hay is actually made from rabbit food :-), and is pressed into bales with a special press I created for the purpose.

This is in 1:22 scale made from genuine Lego bricks with tiltable cabin, working doors and lots of chassis and engine detail. Truly chrome plated bricks are added for the finishing touch.

Sons of Anarchy Street Glide (1:10)

06 October 2013 - 07:08 AM

I love the Sons of Anarchy TV series. I've seen all seasons so far, and love the bikes used in the show. Most of them are California style tricked out Dyna Glides, but so now and then clubmembers like Jax and Bobby are seen on my favorite bike of the show, a blackened Street Glide. This is my version of it in 1:10 scale build in lego's.

 

As usual a lot of custom chromed bricks, electroplated industrially. So now I am going to enjoy Season VI...

Scania R560 V8 'Black Pearl' (1:16)

21 September 2013 - 12:16 AM

More than a year ago I did a first attempt on a Truck that would radiate the look of some of the 25 meter long Scandinavian road trains. This model was inspired by Finnish company Ristimaa, who runs a small fleet of beautiful Scania’s and Volvo’s. I was not completely happy with it, and a few months ago started work on a new one.

The R560 V8 unit is including 2 Lego Power functions engines for steering and drive, and is remotely steerable, operated through IR. The scale is roughly 1:16. The cabin and bulbar are tiltable, and all is fully detailed, including V8 engine. When watching a ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ movie the idea rose to make the artwork on this theme together with the ambition to set the overall detail level to yet another level upwards.

Now airbrushing Lego is not easy, it might be even impossible, at least for me it is. I took the Photoshop path to work around my lack of talent with the airbrush pistol. I think there is as many hours in the photo editing work, as in building the truck and trailer itself, with the trailer stickers moving up to working with 36 layers before merging. A friend of mine printed them industrially, and my wife applied them, as she has much more patience with that type of job then me.

A few hundred bricks were chromed by the ‘plating on plastics’ industrial technology.

 

Here are some stats:

Scania R560 V8 1:16
Total brickamount: approx. 8000, all genuine Lego bricks, some retro-chromed
Weight: approx. 8 kg
Total length: 1.53 meters
Total width: 16 cm
Building time: 3 – 4 months

Harley Davidsons together (1:10)

04 August 2013 - 06:49 AM

Lately I build a couple of Harley Davidsons in Lego, scaled 1:10. All parts are genuine Lego, some retro-chromed industrially, and the design is bottom off done by myself on all three.

 

The yellow one is a regular chopper with an 88 cu engine and a lot of custom mods. The two baggers are FLH Roadkings with the 96 cu engine. The bright red is themed after the 'The Red Baron', the German aviator from WW I, who flew a bright red Fokker triplane.

Harley Davidson ''88 yellow'' in Lego (1:10)

24 July 2013 - 09:03 AM

After a big project like the Peterbilt rotator, that can be seen in the 'under glass' truck section of this forum, it has been nice to work on some 'smaller' things. This is the first of two bikes I am working on. This harley Davidson in 1:10 scale is heavily chromed, yet simple in design by using only one powerful color to it. the lego bricks used for the front and the engine are custom chromed industrially by plating on plastics technology, which works superb on ABS plastic.

 

The name '88' refers to the engine displacement in cubic inches, which is 1450 cc.
 

Hope you like it!
