Paving Roller

102 comments
Since the beginning of LEGO City, different types of vehicles and construction machineries have appeared in different sizes and forms. We had trucks, diggers, excavators, cranes and cement mixers. A few years ago it was released even a drum roller. Time has passed and many other types of machineries got upgrades or new versions. Now I have the honour to introduce you a new vehicle that can be part of the City Series: Paving Roller!

For the first time ever it's not only a digital model, I could also construct it with real bricks. My first thought was to use some wheels with smaller diameter (around 40-43 mm), but since none of those available have a flat profile I've adapted the model with some bigger wheels (diameter 56 mm) in order to make it as realistic as possible. And the part that I like most: this roller can work perfectly with the paving machine that I also created 😁 

When it comes to the structure, this roller has following properties:

  • 238 bricks, including the operator
  • two bigger components: the cab and the 2 rollers that are connected with a flexible element

Since the number of bricks is quite small, a real assembley would not require very advanced skills and of course the price for this set wold be a decent one. I spent some time when I first built it, but with schematics it shouldn't take more than 15-20 minutes. The model is designed with as many moving elements as possible to make it more playable. I tried my best when it comes to recreating a real paving roller and I hope that you will like this as much as I do 😁😁
