I've always wanted to see one of these man-made wonders in person, there's just not that much heavy mining on the central coast of California (but you know, I'm fine with that too). It's just staggering to me that we can make such colossal machines, and that they work. It's also staggering to me that we can build such colossal recreations of these machines in brick, as builder Beat Felber has done here. Not only is it big, beautiful and beefy, it's remote controlled with S-Brick and Power Functions. And check out those custom wheels!
The otherworldly and fantastic shape of this prospecting craft from Vince_Toulouse looks right out of a sci-fi movie or novel. There are so many interesting part usages and combinations that you just don't know where to look next. And all the while it has a functional feel to it, especially with the play features. It seems as much fun to play with as it is to look at.
