Congratulations to me, congratulations to me *sing*
Okay enough of this. This came somewhat unexpected. But I reached this big milestone. 100(!) people and pages liked my Facebook page. This is awesome. Thank you all very much for reading, commenting and liking.
To celebrate this a little, I pulled out the big camera and tried to make some good photographs. After that, I really did some editing *yay*
So here it is:
What we have here is of course the 42029 Customized Pickup Truck and it’s slightly smaller version made by Artemy Zotov. The smaller version was a really cool build with only the LDD file as source material. Also I did some minor modifications, but nothing really outstanding. Both models look really cool next to each other and I hope you like it as much as I do.
Again, thank you all for your support. Next milestone: 1000 page likes 😉
There seems to be some information around about the autumn Technic sets for a little while. Now, from the Nuremberg Toyfair some video footage occured on YouTube.
42029 – Customized Pickup Truck
It has several functions, like suspension on all wheels and a tipping function for the flatbed (afaik). Also it has a lot of red pieces and panels, which seems to make it at least a good parts pack. It even has the new version of the curved and flat 3×11 panels in red, which is a new color for these pieces. Perhaps we’ll see a 42009 in red, soon.
42030 – Volvo L350F Wheel Loader
This is the new flahship model. And as the Unimog before, it is licensed.
It is a remote controlled wheel loader. It features several motors, two remotes and receivers and several linear actuators. It also has a brand new bucket, yellow big rims and “green” engine pieces.
Also, there is some video footage of the wheel loader in motion:
I definately need to get the new wheel loader. Lots of PF parts and I can finally go for remote controlled models. I am not yet sure about the pickup, but probably I’ll get this one as well. Also, I am curious if there will show up some other new sets for the upcoming fall.
