Graphic Designer Chun Yu has been a passionate Lego builder since an early age and last year he graduated to the Lego Technic series. Although he lacks an engineering background, he has excelled in Scania truck models.
“I take photos of the actual vehicles for reference and even draw design blueprints,” he says.
The Scania crane truck is his third creation following a fire truck and a tractor unit. This Scania G 480 crane truck took more than one month to build using over 3,500 Lego bricks and pieces as well as ten mini motors in order to remotely control the truck, crane and tailgate. The movable tailgate is unprecedented in Lego. “That was particularly challenging but it gives me great pleasure to overcome challenges and besides it’s lots of fun.”
Chun Yu recently visited Scania Hong Kong to demonstrate the truck in person and amazed everyone. He looks forward to building more Scania creations in different applications.
