When I do not have something in particular that I've seen in the last week, I go through my backlog reserve of older YT videos. Problem is always the same - which one to peek this time?...
So this week I brought up from the trunk a model by pimpim88103 from Sweden.
Another excavator (yeah, my favorite machine...) - A model from Volvo EC460C Excavator.
Ya right! That's not an original LEGO bucket. Can't be... It's made of steel!
Though I think this is just the right size and form factor of bucket missing at LEGO elements (in plastic of course).
If the videos are not accelerated (don't think they are) the boom performance is quite good, specially when compared with 8043 Motorized Excavator... although at the expense of a prohibitive scale and number of PF motors (9), which of course LEGO can't afford into an official model.
