LEGO has two interesting pick-up truck models on the way right now. One is a little more nostalgic and an attractive display model while the other goes deeper into a realistic depiction of a “workhorse” truck. The LEGO Technic Ford F 150 Set 42126 is that realistic and difficult set.
This is an interesting model for those with some familiarity with Ford pickup trucks.
As with so many of the best Technic LEGO sets, the focus is on creating a miniature working model of a classic model. The Ford F 150 is an interesting choice because it isn’t the sporty or high-performance model seen with other sets. However, it is something that many people will have worked with in the past and that will stir up fond memories. Therefore, builders are going to love crafting the orange body of this rugged truck. The model sits high on the suspension system and big wheels necessary for this truck to make it smoothly other dirt roads on ranches and farms. The large curved hood covers the impressive V6 engine. The interior is spacious with four working doors for the driver and the other key workers ready for their next job. There is then the large truck bed at the back.
Because this is a Technic model, you also get to create and play around with the mechanics of this model. The pistons in that V6 model move to simulate the engine roaring into life. The finished model of this pickup truck is 18cm wide, 42cm long, and 15cm high. This means that it will sit proudly in any collection.
This impressive LEGO pickup truck is a challenge for adult builders.
The size and complexity of this model, with its 1379 pieces also means that it is made for ages 18 plus. This is understandable as the model doesn’t have the same child-like appeal in the features as other cars. There also aren’t the same bonus accessories as you get in other sets. But, this isn’t a bad thing for all those that want the most realistic version of this classic truck as they can get. There may be some niche appeal to this LEGO Technic Ford F 150 Set 42126 because of this, but it is sure to be a hit with a lot of collectors.
