Dumper truck

This model is number 10.9 from the post-war Set 10 manual. Having enjoyed building the lifting shovel, this model appeared to be of a similar nature.

However, I was slightly disappointed as it does not operate as well as the lifting shovel. This is mainly due to the controls, and the somewhat indirect way they are linked to the clutch, gearbox and tipping mechanism. The controls almost seem like an afterthought, stuck on the side of the model and routed around existing parts.
