Almost everything that comes from the hands of Bricksonwheels Customs is awe-inspiring, but this time I’m bringing to your attention a match made in heaven. Truckers’ heaven, that is.
There's been some serious top-chopping going on there.
It takes a lot of will power to make yourself believe that all of this is actually LEGO. And then you’re sincerely disappointed – since let’s be honest, when’s the next time you’ll see a cabrio Peterbilt on the back of a fully fitted Scania?
I am a huge fan of green, I admit. And like most guys out there, I definitely enjoy trucks. So obviously, the combination of those two instantly rings the blogger bell in my head – especially when there’s double of both. These two heavyweight monsters made the rounds about a week ago, just after our last truck blogging frenzy – which definitely called for a slight break, otherwise we might as well have rebranded to Classic-Trucks.net. Now, however, I’m sure that all truck fanatics out there are hungry for more – so here they come.
First is Maciej Drwiega with his V8-powered Peterbilt 359 logging truck straight out of the forests of Twin Peaks:
And if you’d rather have some heavy industry machinery, this should definitely grab your attention – it’s a civilian Consolidated Faran built by Aleksandar Stein, who’s obviously quite a truck fan himself.
I am not really sure which one of both has a tougher job to do, but I’m positive that these are by far the strongest-looking green MOCs I’ve ever seen.
Alright, Shuppiluliumas’ Peterbilt car carrier may not be as big and shiny as the one we featured a while ago, but it has the advantage that it fits seamlessly in your City streets. If you pre-ordered a Smart car (by Automechanicx) it should be arriving in the color of your choice really soon.
Peterbilt Car Carrier
Trust me, you’d be hard-pressed to find more hot wheels in one MOC. Dutch expert bricksonwheels has started 2010 in style – by building this beautiful 1:17 replica of a heavily-chromed Peterbilt 359 car carrier which even has its corresponding trailer attached to it… and a couple of hot cars, in case you don’t believe it’s meant to do a job rather than be stared at.
What's your pick - the cars or the truck?
Stare and drool, however, is all I can do. And it’s quite understandable, seeing as this heavyweight beauty features detailed work on its engine, body and interior… And I think it’s safe to say that its raw beauty does definitely overshadow the Italian charm of the Ferrari and Lambo it’s carrying (and we’re not even talking about torque or horsepower here).
