Mini Mack Anthem

This is a 1/2 scale remote control version of Lego's Mack Anthem set 42078.

I wanted to create a small scale Truck where the power supply, controller (in this case a Buwizz) and motors all incorporated into the cab, so when Lego released the Mack Anthem with it's large sleeper space it was the perfect choice, and also a great challenge.

I also wanted to have all 4 rear wheels to be driven and to have the Buwizz at the rear of the cabin so it would be easier to switch on and off and the extra ports would be accessible for any power functions required in the trailer (trailer is still a work in progress). This required quite a bit of trial & error to get the drive train to work within the confined space as I also needed the servo motor for the steering to be at the bottom due to the Mack anthem having a nose on it.

The truck is only 26 bricks long, 8 wide (excluding mirrors) and 13 high, but includes:
Buwizz for power & control
M Motor to drive the 4 rear wheels (geared down 1/3 for better torque)
& Servo Motor for steering

I have also tried to include as many of the 42078 sets features as possible, including two tone seats, steering wheel, opening doors, steps, side grills, and the chrome (in this case light grey) detailing on the front grill, as well as keep the shape as close as possible.
