Live Steam Mad

This is either barking mad, very brave, or total genius! Probably genius, looking at the craftsmanship involved.. I can't believe that you have squeezed a full working contempary PC into there... Your truck looks incredible with all the lights and features! I really like the paint job and colour, very cool! Talk about a mobile PC! I like the humorous Intel Inside advert Tell me something though.. when you crash the truck through bad driving, does that mean that you have (head) crashed the PC's Hard Disk as well ?!
This has to be just about the most *bling* that you can ever fit to one of these trucks! A seemless integration of electrical and mechanical engineering, hats off to you Sir, it's Superb! Cheers, Alistair G.

WOW! That is really cool! How much did it cost and how long did it take for this be be built? Very original!!

The truck took me about 2 -3 months to cad up and build. Cost me about £1000, not including the amount of time it took to make thou. Being a truck you don't really drive it mad but the HD is mounted in firmly and allows some movement. Ant

Bonjour, je voudrais faire un mod dans le même camion que le tiens mais en ajoutant un water cooling dans la remorque. Sur le site de Tamiya, je ne trouve pas la référence de la remorque. Pourrais tu me dire où la trouver. Je précise, que le camion sera pour un ami qui a une entreprise de transport et qui a justement des camions de ce modèle. Merci de me répondre. A+

Just seen this for the first time today and I can't believe what I'm looking at! The whole thing works for me SO well at many levels, from the initial idea to it's completion - a truly awesome piece of work! Just need to get some old promo films from the Landrover Film Library on the HDD now eh!?
