Inspired by David's construction site, I felt he needed some construction vehicles.

Have you considered a 4wide version?

What is the red part for the drum? I don't recognise it. Does look good. Maybe the wing-mirrors could be higher?

Lol. I considered it a mistake ;-)

2 of these https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=45411&ccName=4195061#T=S&C=5&O={"color":"5","iconly":0} with a 6x8 plate between and some technic pins 4x4 plates keeping it together. I had made one which would have been perfect on a 4 wide but was lost on the 6 wide. I debated hanging the wing mirrors from above but changed in back. Still on the fence with that one.

@Patrick, thanks for sharing that. I have those in white, might experiment with them on a 4-wide but would think they might be too wide/tall (width is 6 studs but you'd need to add curved tiles to make it more round but then it would be closer to 8 studs)?

@John, yes, yes I am :D

I didn't have enough of the curved tiles but it should stay about the 6 wide mark even with those.

As it happens the back has been removed and replaced with a large empty space that tilts.  Far more playability for more testers :)  Its all about UAT!
