BLACK LABEL: VOLVO F16 GLOBETROTTER 1:13 SCALE LEGO® MODELI highly encourage you to visit his FlickR gallery to get some ideas out of his amazing Volvo Truck ;). You can do so here!

Volvo F12 in Lego

VOLVO F12 INTERCOOLER 1:13 SCALE LEGO® MODEL - "SEVENTIES LOOK" LEGO BOX

And again Andrea Lattanzio presents us his new Lego Truck. In this case, it is a fantastic Volvo F12.

VOLVO F12 COMPOSITION

“To realize the LEGO® model I’ve used the magnificent 1/8 scale model released in 1987 by Pocher (historic Italian brand of static model making, failed few years ago and now bought by the english Hornby). I’ve bought a very good F12 Pocher on ebay in 2010 (I’ve looked for it for a long, long time!)

VOLVO F12 INTERCOOLER - IN LINE 6 CYLINDER ENGINE

First of all I’ve designed and built the chassis, estimating the ratio with the 1/8 model. Then I built the cab and all the details (fuel tank, air tanks, tool box, fifth wheel, exhaust pipe, etc…). Last but not least I realized the 6 cylinder inline engine. I finished the work on april 2011 and I think the “red giant” looks very fine!”

The Lego System (Also called studed) design of the truck is what attracts me the most… It makes the look of the truck much more sophisticated. I really like it.

Finally, the wires at the back, the yellow and red ones, look amazing! I have never found something like that, except in Andrea´s mocs.

I hope you liked it! You can check Andrea´s FlickR gallery here.

Custombricks has also made a fantastic job with this Micro Lego R2-D2! Apparently, it uses a similar system to the creeps of Lego Minecraft seets. Very original!

Pat Duffy Lego Truck

SCANIA LB 141 "PAT DUFFY" presented by Bibendum & Flipje

Andrea Lattanzio, who is a FlickR user, contacted me some months ago by Facebook. I was getting used to it, and didnt see her message. Well, today I have seen it and here it is his creation: A Lego Scania LB 141!

This is for you Andrea! :P. Remember readers, if you have a Lego creations and want it to be posted here, just ask. I am not everywhere!

SCANIA LB 141 "PAT DUFFY" - SEV 928W

“In October 2012 I found in a forum for English truckers a great SCANIA LB 141 with a very fascinating colour scheme; after reading a lot of posts I discovered it was the 141 used in the seventies by an English hauler located on the Hampshire called “Pat Duffy” (Patrick J Duffy Transport).
In the seventies this 141, with many others “brothers”, operated on traction work hauling other companies trailers all over Europe, it carried loads of Sony TVs to Milan (where I live) also to Barcelona, Lisbon and Athens.
The LB 141 was released by the Swedish manufacturer in 1976; it was identical to the 140 but it had a most powerful engine unit (385 HP).

SCANIA LB 141 "PAT DUFFY" - tools box

Stunned by the story and the style of “Pat Duffy” tractor in November 2012 I started building the 1/13 LEGO model. On February 2013 it was finished and ready to be placed close to my LB 140 yellow and blue. I love the colour scheme and the accessories as the Hella supplemental lights, the side ladder and the luggage rack. I also like the double english plate on the back.”

So this is the story of the creation. Thank you for sharing it with me Andrea! You can see many more pictures of this creation at his FlickR Gallery.

Enjoy!

Coral's Kicks

As a basketball player it was really funny to see these twotrainers on FlickR for the first time… Siercon and Coral, who have appeared several times at YiharuaBlog, are the original authors. Very clever.

Their gallery is here.

 

Colomor Pocket

This is Grant´s vision of a WW2 skirmish… And a really ravishing one! I like it!

“They are too many of them. I can see their boot and the ringing tracks on the Tigers. Me and my team are hiding out in a basement of a bombed-out inn. We weren’t expecting this when we landed. Quiet! I hear them coming down the stairs….”-Zebulon Vance Saunders

It has its own story… I highy recommend a visit to Grant´s Gallery.

I hope you liked it!
