Large, Realistic, Functional Truck

Name of Model: US Truck 2

Details: This truck in the Model Team style has enough working features to put the sets in that theme to shame. Using Power Functions motors, this truck has proper steering, outriggers, and is powered strongly enough to function as a remote-control toy. In the video where the suspension system is demonstrated, it sounds like the gears strain a little bit - but the fact that this can handle it's own weight at all is enough of a feat even if it does strain a few parts. Then there's those looks - the bold red, white, blue, dark blue, and chrome silver looks fantastic. Coming in somewhere around miniland scale, this is one of the larger trucks I've seen, and no detail or feature had to be spared to make it work.
This is Saturday's model of the day
