How did it all start? In 1986 I saw the new LEGO® Model Team series printed in a fresh catalogue at the beginning of the year. Keen on trucks I wanted to have the white US truck (set 5580) but still had to wait for a couple of months. In the meantime I started to build my own truck model. It was a Volvo F12 heavy haulage combo laden with an excavator (set 8851). It was far from what the models are nowadays of course but as a kid I felt very proud with the result. And many more trucks would follow. In a meanwhile I had my copy of set 5580!
Today I own quite some Model Team sets which I keep on display as well as some other scale model like vehicles.
