Lego set 381Memory Lane - First Steering Cars

Last week I was browsing through my Lego catalogue and my eye catched this set 381 from 1973. I never had these myself. My grand parents had this set amongst the Lego from my uncle we played with when we visited them. I remember that I as a kid was intrigued by this simple steering technic. Nowadays I tried to mimic the setup with some conventional Lego pieces but I didn't got it that stable. So I planned to buy some used sets. Back than I could play for hours making turns and driving in and out parking places both backwards and forward.

Set 8110: Mercedes-Benz Unimog 400

Set 8110 Mercedes-Benz UnimogFinally Lego gets into the real deal; Mercedes-Benz. I am not only a huge fan of Lego but also of Mercedes-Benz. Not so much the utility vehicles or trucks but more the cars business, but anyway this is promissing for the future. I am looking forward to next years Mercedes-Benz releases.

This set is very well designed and equiped. Both PF and Pneumatics are used to mimic the real car as much as possible. Lego really managed to keep very close to the reallive utility vehicle. Especially the drive train, suspencion and body are close to perfection. What strikes me is that for the first time 2 different technologies (PF and Air Pressure) are combined in one set plus a huge amount of new designed parts as well. All in all it justifies the relative high set price.
