Very VERY loosely based on a 1910 Berliet. Made from the usual bits and pieces; See how many things you can recognise from their previous existence!!

Mikey, I've looked at this pic for a good 30 mins, and I still can't make out the origins of the parts of this lorry. However, I am willing to bet you spent absolutely nothing on them!

Is the seat a bean tin?

Looks great, though! Cool

Imagination never ceases.

I reckon the wheels are some sort of bottle top with the plastic inserts for medicine.

The rest I really don't know at the moment.

Did you take some 'component' pics before the yellow bin beckoned?

I'm glad I'm not the only one who spent time studying Mikey's latest creation. I was going to guess the wheels were knobs off some sort of cabinet or furniture. There's probably some coat hanger wire involved as well.

It's the engine cover/bonnet that has me most intrigued. The shape is unusual.

I think Mikey intentionally made the photo fuzzy so we couldn't steal his secrets. Laughing

Wheels are actually wheels this time!! LGB/playmobil with flanges ground off with Dremel.

chassis frame is an LGB chassis turned upside down and cut to size

sides of lorry are from the same plant boxes I get the widow frames from (just like plasticard in black)

Bonnet is a wooden building brick cut and sanded to shape

Roof supports are from wire fencing

Roof is cut from a CD inner case.

The seat is from a playmobil carriage.
I nearly always forget to take component pictures because I'm never sure how it will turn out. As long as the model gives the impression of what it is meant to resemble I'm happy

I thought it was bits and pieces? If you can afford to carve up an LGB Chassis and donate LGB wheels that must be your most expensive creation to date!

If you've got any spare chassis around, that you're throwing out bounce

Seriously though - another Mikey masterpiece, well done!

Pretty close to the real thing, Mikey.
