This is a creation made during the winter, for a special purpose. A Christmas gift for a friend asked by his girlfriend. As He own a construction company, she asked me to reproduce one of his truck. This creations has been made for 4 month now but I publish here after Christmas and during the small break during my move.

Therefore this is a simple dump truck based on Renault of Mercedes brand without defined model. It has a working fake V6 engine, opennable hood and door, steering, and of course a lifting dump and tipping rail.

The steering is based on a simple rack and pinion with good turning radius. The transmission is made with a differential on rear axle and three 16t gear. Regarding the dump, there is a simple linear actuator placed under with 12/20 gearing and two ends for put a crank on each side.

To finish, this is a simple creation but I liked to do something different with custom sticker. Then also order parts and mount. Regarding the design I have worked hard on the front because of the hood, radiator and light integration.
