LEGO Mercedes Unimog 5000.
Features: 4wd, lights, 3 differentials, center lockable differential by RC linear actuator.
It took me 1 week to be done. I like the use of differentials, so sometime it has not enough traction, but most times it can handle the job, and the performance is never bad in plain when steering. It also can afford about 45° slope. I like green panels (the only ones I have in high quantity...) so the body is green!
I hope you like it :-)
good looking, isn’t it? ;)
particular of the linear actuator and the yellow gear bearing (drive train)
chassis without body
detail of the suspension. A first attempt with "Axle and Pin Connector Angled #1" pieces was a failure because under stress the external part come off. This way, with "Axle and Pin Connector Perpendicular" pieces, is ok
