It' been quite a few years since LEGO released the last one, "The Orient Expedition". Several other themes have been released on the same lines, including Indy of course.
So, I decided to make something similar, and based the characters around them, maybe his son or something...
Now, this is the first model I've built on the theme, I know it doesn't look anything too special, but on LDD it very rarely does.
This is basically an 8 wheel go anywhere mobile Archaeologists Lab.
For those of you who know what Thunderbirds is, you might think the truck in design looks familiar. Well it is based on a submarine carrying truck from the episode "Desperate Intruder", although not based solely on it, it is my own design.
I've included 3 minifigs in the set, Johnny's son, Professor and a young Girl who's probably a junior archaeologist.
The back of the truck is accessible by removing the roof and dropping down the rear door.
Here we see the Lab, including, a sink for cleaning artefacts, magnifying equipment and several other tools.
Again, in the real world, I'd have added a sticker of a map or something on the wall.
The front of the truck is designed to take two minifigs, also there is a storage area behind the seats for the other tools included. These are a Rifle, Pick-axe, Shovel, Backpack, Movie Camera and picture Camera.
The rear Door down with the roof on, still leaves plenty of space for minifigs.
