LEGO Mack truck with power

Lego truckIt’s a pretty rude expression of a mack truck.  I struggle with actually putting in the effort to scale things properly or work on replication from a model.  I just said, “I want to build a mack truck” and started at it.  I mean, yeah, you get the idea that it’s a mack truck, but it also kind of looks like a tractor.  Whatever, it only took a few hours.  I wanted something I built on my own to show the kids in the class I teach.

The steering wheel turns the front wheels.  The doors open.  The 2 long grey cylinders are actually old school battery packs that power 2 electric motors rigged up with gears to the back 2 axles of the truck, so when you power them both on, it moves!
