Truck T2 MkII v2.0 with instructions

Model "Truck T2 MkII v2.0" is build with LEGO® in scale 1:17,5 and motorized using LEGO® Power Functions®. This model is not build after a specific brand or type of truck. It represents the well iconic US style truck with classic looks.

The truck features: solid axle suspension on all axles, PF powered driving with power transmitted independently to both rear axles, Ackerman geometry on steering axle, Servo powered steering, fully functional fifth wheel, modeled engine, detailed cabin interior and 3 light units.

With the release of v2.0 of this build quite some improvement were made. First of all some hard to get parts have been replaced. Not all, but it is easier to build this beauty. Next has the exterior been updated. Now it's features has been extended with openable doors, a easier to open hood and detailed cabin interior.

This model is another custom design by Ingmar Spijkhoven AKA 2LegoOrNot2Lego that comes with building instructions and inventory/parts list!
You can build it yourself! To do so you can buy the Building Instructions. Early in the building process you will see what it is that you are building. You will be very excited from the moment you start the build of "Truck T2 MkII v2.0" till you finish it with a total number of about 2000 pieces.

As one of the designer's trademarks this truck model is provided with full solid axle suspension on all axles, so including the front steered axle. Regular LEGO® Technic shock absorbers proved too large. Instead Rubber Belts are used, to achieve this the movement is converted using a lever constructions.

This truck model is powered by a Detroit Diesel DD15 which is revealed with the hood opened. This power source is an inline 6 cylinder engine with a displacement of 906 cu. in. (14.9 L). The horsepower range is from 455 up to 505 HP and this engine has a torque range from 1550 to 1750. This detailed engine is very nice to build and to give it those realistic looks a total number of about 90 parts is used. Engine is detailed with for example engine oil dipstick, fan, fan belt, pulleys, hoses, oil filters including by-pass oil filter, turbo, exhaust manifold and so on. Together with much more engine bay details which are added the looks are phenomenal. These include break fluid reservoir, windshield washer container, external air cleaner system with tubing and steering shaft.

A lot of detail is added to the cabin's interior as well in the colors Dark Bluish Gray with some Tan details. By opening this model’s doors one can access the cabin. The interior's colors, which is quite dark, really standout because of the truck's body work mainly white color. For the driver's comfort the interior has gauges, switches, speakers and comfortable seats. Other details are a glove compartment, more compartments in both doors, angled dash and gauge panel, a steering wheel and a gear shift.
