Demoing 8052 Container Truck

Barry Bosman built the 8052 (Container Truck) with the correct parts, but with already available colors, while the real model doesn't become available at stores.

He also made an excellent video to show the model's functions.
Guess he wanted to understand how this model works, and the details about the functions that raise/lower the container and load or unload it.



So finally I did understand it also!...

Oh... there's more to it than meets the eye. Very neat, but I'll still probably wait 'till discount before I get it.

Hi,

The youngest AFOL should also have a look at Jennifer Clark model of a skip truck dating from 2001!.

Her website is highly detailled (comments, pictures, videos).

@ SixStuds
Not just the youngest AFOLs should look at it, every AFOL should look at it. In fact, every human should look at it. In fact, every sentient entity should look at it, whether biologic or non-corporeal.

Slightly off topic but the new sets are now available in the UK. The prices aren't too bad either, but I guess that might change once VAT goes up in 2011. Even if it is only a few pounds difference, it's still a price increase.
