This is my fourth project and it's very different from the previous ones, since those were all related to hot rods. This idea is about a a semi-truck with a lowboy trailer for heavy construction equipment transportation.

It is inspired by classic Model Team sets 5580, 5590, and 5591, built in the style of the more modern Creator theme. In fact, you may recognize I used the same scale, style, and colors found in Highway Pickup, set 7347 (since this is only a conceptual design, I wouldn't expect an official model to be so similar).

I believe there is a market for such a set. Although trucks and construction vehicles have always been very popular Lego models, a set like this in this scale hasn't been done before. At least, not that I'm aware of (I do know about Excavator Transport, set 4203, which is City-scale).

I have this set displayed in my office now, which is related to the construction industry. People really seem to enjoy it. I hope you will, too! As always, I tried my best to come up with a product that people would be excited over, that hasn't been produced before, and is not based on intellectual property. I appreciate you viewing my project and your consideration.

There are more pictures on my flickr account.
