LEGO Technic 8110 Mercedes-Benz Unimog U 400 : Complex but satisfying.

No challenges with shipping and delivery either.

Even though a instead costly outlay, this is a definitely fulfilling design to make. It can be acquired guidelines which are really quick to abide by ( all 5 of them) and it requires a excellent few several hours to comprehensive. I just kept imagining how intelligent the lego engineers are in producing these kinds of a thingit’s just a scenario of what to do with it when it can be entire. Talking of which i think young children would find it good entertaining to build although some who are not familiar with technic kits could want a bit of assist. I’ve obtained my eyes on the distant controlled digger for when i get a bit of wet day money.

Initial charge product or service and provider. As somebody properly previously mentioned the advisable age selection for this kit, i have liked the many hours that it took in development, and the completed product is fantastic to run, with its doing work pneumatic seize and winch. With its functioning suspension, differential gearing and its steering, it really is a joy to use and a great talking place. I am just hoping to work out whether to insert a second motor to give push to the wheels, and i shall consider it to be a triumphthe package arrived very promptly and in superior condition, so total marks to jadlam racing versions – a terrific support.Here are the specifications for the LEGO Technic 8110 Mercedes-Benz Unimog U 400:

Took me an estimated 12hours to create on and off. Absolutley incredible the purpose it utilizes manufactured from lego this is the greatest set i have constructed and would endorse it around any other. I had a slight difficulty as soon as i finished the develop, and uncovered out on-line that some others experienced done the very same, the centre diff had been place in in the incorrect route which was interfering with the steering rack. I experienced to choose quite alot of it apart . When finished is effective terrific and is genuinely significant.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Always wanted a Unimog ,even a model !!
  • Probably the best Technic set yet?
  • Cheaper to run than a real Unimog, and almost as tough
  • Probably the best Technic model ever designed
  • Not as good I as hoped it would be
  • This is a fantastic model -probably one of he best so far sand

Prime lego technic package at any time for now. . Leading top best lego kit, ive been creating many lego technic kits now for 30 decades and have very well around 20 kits and this is by considerably a single of the most effective they have produced (it truly is substantial and a twenty/thirty hour construct). If your considering of shopping for the unimog for your boy or girl they might will need some assistance from there dad or uncle. It is really rather a complexed establish. I just have to have help you save up for there mindstorm kits now so i can build a lego programable significant trak.

I have formulated a style for setting up lego technic models, if only for the reason that my young grandson who is too youthful for these, thinks they are wonderful. This design has been out for a whilst and superseded by other automobiles but for sheer specialized complexity it is tough to defeat. Working with a wide range of challenging gears and hydraulics to work the crane attachment it involves a good diploma of concentration to develop. The instruction manuals ( five textbooks ) are common of the technic vary and supply all you need to have to construct a productive product. The odd element on occasion was made use of but by pursuing the guides and assembly drawings this was quickly rectified. The concluded article is very a measurement and significantly even bigger than i thought it would be. All round a quite fulfilling model and there have been a lot of several hours whiled absent with my grandson as we figured out to function the hydraulic crane attachment which extra or fewer mimic’s the true issue.


One thought on “LEGO Technic 8110 Mercedes-Benz Unimog U 400 : Complex but satisfying.”

  1. It took me about 15 hours to finish. It took me about 15 hours to finish and much to my surprise worked first time. Every time you curse lego and think they forgot to pack a bit, you reread the instructions and realise it’s your fault.
    1. Not as good i as hoped it would be. I just thought i would write a review for someone who does not have a lot of lego and just wants a kit to build and play with. The unimog is quite pricey but the functionality is quite limited with the finished model. Compared to the excavator/volvo set the unimog does not come with remote control and only has one motor. Also the gearing of the winch and the arm is too slow. I had to buy new gear wheels to improve the speed of the winch and the turning of the arm. When the model was built and i was showing it off the speed of both turning is quite disappointing and you can see the disappointment in the faces of the people watching. The pneumatic arm is also a bit of a disappointment, yes it is a technical marvel and it is nice to learn about these things but it is jerky and the claw at the end does not always work. Even when re-routing the tubes the claw was slow to work. ( i am not just someone who follows instructions i try and think for my self and improve once it is finished).

    This is a fantastic model -probably one of he best so far sand. I bought this as another lego technic remote controlled model for my grandchildren. This is a fantastic model -probably one of he best so far sand offers remote control for forward and reverse as well as other functions. A really nice model to build .

  4. This review is from : LEGO Technic 8110 Mercedes-Benz Unimog U 400

    Probably the best technic model ever designed. I am a fan of technic models having bought and built lego technic 9396: rescue helicopter earlier in the year which i did not think could be topped for realistic level of detail but the unimog does it. There is a reason why this model is going up in price now that it is no longer sold in the shops and it is because it is a fun build with insane levels of realism. The 4 wheel drive gearbox also drives the pneumatic pumps and a driveshaft at either end. This means that attachments can be either end of the truck. The finished model is about a foot long and is a nice display piece. The power functions motors control the gearbox but not the drive. It is not remote controlled like the newer and currenctly cheaper lego technic 42030 remote-controlled volvo l350f wheel load. That said i have bought the volvo and intend using the remote conrol to make the unimog a proper rc car.

    Bought this as a present for my boyfriend and it was a perfect gift. Kept him quiet and out of the way for ages.

    The ultimate sophistication in construction toys. Challenging for all ages, totally absorbing and fascinating in its complexity. Typical lego thoroughness in the packaging and the attention to detail in the instructions (5 books). Not cheap but worth every penny.

    Will take hours to build – be prepared to take a lot of time, and enjoy building it. More of an adult thing really, than a child, a toy for a grown up. My husband loves it, and is savouring every moment of the build. It comes with the pieces in various packets, that make up each build stage, so no nasty sorting of parts. And you can take each stage at a time.

    Took me an estimated 12hours to build on and off. Absolutley amazing the function it uses made from lego this is the best set i have built and would recommend it over any other. I had a slight problem once i finished the build, and found out online that others had done the same, the centre diff had been put in in the wrong direction which was interfering with the steering rack. I had to take quite alot of it apart . Once done works great and is truly massive.
    1. I have developed a taste for building lego technic models, if only because my young grandson who is too young for these, thinks they are amazing. This model has been out for a while and superseded by other vehicles but for sheer technical complexity it is hard to beat. Using a variety of complicated gears and hydraulics to operate the crane attachment it requires a fair degree of concentration to build. The instruction manuals ( 5 books ) are typical of the technic range and provide all you need to build a successful model. The odd part on occasion was used but by following the guides and assembly drawings this was easily rectified. The finished article is quite a size and much bigger than i thought it would be. Overall a very satisfying model and there have been plenty of hours whiled away with my grandson as we learned to operate the hydraulic crane attachment which more or less mimic’s the real thing.

    Kept my busy for 2 days straight. I was a very good challenge and once i started i couldnt stop. I must of spent 2 12hr goes making it.
    1. A superb kit, with a lot of features. . My teenage son loved building the model, he really enjoyed all the diffrent features. He has been able to adapt the back to suit him self. He has now been looking at adding lights.
