Week TechVideo, 2010 #25 - 16 wheeled, a sort of Monster Truck

This week another video from Barry Bosman (barebos or barman).

A 16 wheeled kind of Monster Truck, strongly based on the Mad Masher Monster Machine toy from the 80´s according to the author.

It looks like a late entry for the June LEGO® Technic Challenge, now that the youngster entries are already available to vote and the adult entries also featured at LEGO® Technic Blog.

It is however not the first attempt do do it in a LEGO model, as you may see from this Amando Tanedo model at MOCpages.

Although I guess it is not functional (motorized) as the Barry's version is.

The fact is, that the ground clearance is really short. The ground is designed to be passable. But this is a great job !

Yes Nico, I've looked at it also as a great job, but not as TrTr exercise.

That's why I've written "a sort of..." in the title.

Nevertheless the ground clearence issue, is just a matter of scale between the vehicle and the terrain where it goes. :)
