And the B Model
Lego Technic fan Barry Bosman has recreated the Lego Technic Container Truck (set 8052) from photos using currently available parts and colours.
This video explains how the one mechanism manages to both tip the body up, and to also offload the body. This is the main function of a Lift hook type vehicle. (see 1:33 > 2:00)
Many Lego fans have been trying to build simple Hook Lift lorry's for years without managing to recreate such a simple mechanism to both tip and offload.
