Vintage Pickup Truck

Inspired by my 10265 alternative, the idea was now to build a pickup from the 10252 Beetle set as well after the Offroader creation earlier on. Because the parts seemed more suitable for a vintage model, this car is based on American pickup trucks from the 1930’s. During that time several car manufacturers produced pickup […]

Pickup Truck

The idea was to create an alternative that would be a suitable complementary model to the LEGO Creator Expert set 10265; a Ford Mustang from 1967. The result is this pickup truck mainly inspired by a 1970’s F100. With over 1100 pieces it reuses almost 80% of the parts included in the original set which […]

Big Rig

Classified as Top Secret case 10262: 007’s alternative vehicle of choice. The request was to review the new 10262 Aston DB5 Bond edition. However because Brixtar was all about re-using the bricks you have, the request was if I could build an alternative model and from this point of view review the model through an […]

Telehandler

This function packed telehandler is an alternate of Creator set 5867. This model was quite an interesting build and caused its unique challenges due to the odd overall shape, which is low and asymmetrical, and the integration of some functionality. For the telescoping boom, and the adjustable angle of it I had to use some […]

Power Truck

This truck is an alternate from Creator set 31006 Highway Speedster. The idea was to make a powerful, and modern looking tractor truck. The low window, massve grill, and racing livery lines should contribute to the model’s agressive and dynamic look. Due to the size, much of the surface is covered with long plates attached […]

Cherrypicker

The 8292 Cherrypicker was the most challenging, but also most rewarding model that I designed. Features – Motorized elevation of boom – Motorized rotation of boom – Manual boom extension – Steering – Opening doors Background After the introduction of Power Functions, the question was how low can the price get, while having a minimum […]

Tractor Truck

My 1st alternate from Creator set 5867: Tractor truck. Exploring the possibilities and limitations of this set my first try turned out into this truck with a big cabin, which can be tilted, opening doors and fifth wheel. I thought this was the best I could do with this set. Never have been so wrong, […]
