LEGO Digger MOC


Usually I'll post some updates as I'm working on a new papercraft model, but this time I'm keeping it a secret. ;o) But in the meantime, here's a new simple little LEGO "MOC" ("My Own Creation") I made!

As you can see, after the Traffic Police car last time, this time I made a simple little Digger / Excavator!


Like before I used a mix of "classic" and "modern" LEGO pieces. I would've liked to make it in the classic LEGO construction colour yellow, but I had to compromise a bit though, because some parts (especially the "Locking Hinge Train Gates 2 x 4") just aren't available (yet) in the colours that I'd like:

 

I think black "Train Gates" would look better than yellow ones, and with some more "classic" LEGO hinge plates (instead of the "modern" locking ones) you can also use a thinner digger bucket (4626 Black Hinge Bucket 2 x 3 Curved Bottom Hollow, with 2 Fingers) which looks pretty good too, but I wanted to use the locking hinge plates (you can mix and match "classic" and "modern" hinge plates of course!)


It's a simple little digger, with turntable action, very easy access for the construction worker, and the digger arm and "Train Gates" for stability while digging can fold in to make the Digger more compact for transport. ;o)

Well, I hope you like it (I enjoyed making it anyway ;o) here are the instructions:
