Markus writes about the Unimog History

In the sequence of the 8110 Unimog U400 release, LEGO Designer Markus Kossman writes about the Unimog history at the blog.

Read it out, here!

He writes it was an honor to build the first LEGO Technic replica of an Unimog.
Although I always thought that 8854 Power Crane from 1989, had also an Unimog inspiration despite not officially advertised.

I think that the 8848 Truck from 1981 ( was even more inspired by Unimog.
