Well after buying my first Lego Technics model back in January (http://bonxy.info/?p=16269) I decided it was time to invest in a bigger one.

My birthday wasn’t far out so I decided to go for the Lego HGV Tow Truck (42008).

Lego HGV Tow TruckThis one unlike the other was fully motorized with hydraulic T-bar and boom including winch. It also had rear stabilizer legs for picking up heavy loads.

This one was far more complex that the first one and the main gearbox to control everything was a lot more complicated and fiddly. Once the engine and the gearbox was built it went quite easy from there.

In total I think it was a 1500 piece set and took around about 5 / 6 hours to complete.

I was as excited as a fat kid in a sweet shop when I got my Lego Technic Tow Truck.

Lego Technics Tow Truck Box As a kid I had loads of Lego. I used to build anything. I think I was about 9/10 when I got my first ever Lego technic set. I got a green dump truck. I was only young so don’t think I could build it that well. Now I look back to it was over 1500 pieces!

So, after reading a thread on a forum I go on where a lad got a Tower Bridge Lego set. This went on to loads of people going out and buying some amazing Lego models. I shopped around for a good few hours before I came to the decision that I wanted the Crane Truck (8258).
