About this model
The original Model Team truck Highway Rig was released in 1986 (some markets in 1990). It started the era of 12 stud wide Model Team trucks and was followed 5590 Whirl and Wheel Super Truck in 1990, and Mach II Red Bird Rig in 1994. The theme contains several other models and the 12 wide trucks were replaced by even larger and detailed trucks. See a complete list on Brickset.
The model on this site is an updated version of the classic model. Several parts have been replaced by modern equivalents. The steering knob has been moved to the roof of the truck and the coupling is of a type which follows our standard and works together with all the trailers of this site.Building instructions for this LEGO model
