Building (half-way) LEGO 8110 Mercedes Benz Unimog

Woo! When I ordered this LEGO Technic 8110 Mercedes Benz Unimog from Amazon I wasn’t aware that it was so big and so complex. To be fair, I bought it as a “cheap” way of getting lots of new bricks, power function motors and pneumatic parts.

I were going to record this one on a video as a time-lapse of the building process… but man! when I opened the box I really though it was a very very bad idea to record this. So I have ordered an extra camera’s battery from Amazon and launched building it anyway.

This is what I have when I opened the bags tagged as 1. So with my “helpful” assistant, we launched ourselves on the process of building this nice vehicle.


After two days building it ( around five hours of real work ) the vehicle started having some van-shape…

And after plugin the LEGO Power Functions Motor every gear seems to be working… I don’t want to do the same mistake that I did with the 42006 Excavator.

So here it is this little beauty!


And other one!


And a hot close-up!


So far no big problems. Just I had to rebuilt from scratch on step 10 or 12 when I realized that I have placed the diferential on the wrong position.

Here you can see it in action.

Yay! I will keep you updated!
