42043 Langholzlaster (long timber truck)




Attention! LONG vehicle! 1.25m!

This is my MOD of 42043 Mercedes Benz AROCS.

You will need some additional lego parts to build it and for the load you will need some non lego parts:
- Real wood!
- I used 13 branches of a hazelnut tree, each of them 1m long, straight and thin enough to fit to the Lego truck (Many thankx to my parents for collecting them in a local park!)

- Automatic steering of front axle
- Follows the direction of the truck guided by the posts
- Full suspension of rear axle
