Scale I Build

Found 1 result

  1. Many of you know that I have a weakspot for Peterbilt trucks. A big rotator towtruck on a Peterbilt chassis had been on my mind for a while, but as it is a massive project it never came to life really. A while ago after having done some extensive research on the web and contacting some manufacturers, I started work on this massive 1:13 scaled machine. Although a big part of the truck resembles a lot of my earlier work I still tried to add a bit more detail and some minor improvements. The rotator body itself was completely new to me. I have built wreckers before, but a rotator was a new challenge. I choose the century 1075 construction by Miller Industries. They were so kind to supply me some good reference pictures to make the body on the detail level I desired. The Lego replica is 93 cm (36.6 inch) in length, and has a rotating extendable crane with 4 wired winches. Another winch is located on the tow boom. The outriggers can be put out for demonstrating poses together with functional doors and tooling. The whole thing clocks in at almost 9 kg, and about 10.000 pieces of Lego.
