The gourmet food truck scene has exploded in recent years, so why not let our Lego minifigures get in on the action? This truck is based on a typical American food truck, and because it's Lego, it can be customized in an infinite number of ways, just like real food trucks. There can be variations in color, interior details, and stickers.
About the Build:
The design is based on one of the first new age food trucks in Los Angeles, the Kogi truck, which makes Korean barbecue tacos and burritos (delicious!). It was designed to fit in with official Lego City vehicles, thus the 6-wide build and use of mudguards. The build itself is a bit more complicated than a typical City set, but not any more difficult than say, a Winter Village set. If this were to be made into a real set, the glass for the sky lights would need to be transparent blue (Lego currently doesn't make them in that color).
Features of this build:
- Detailed serving counter
- Detailed kitchen with oven, sink, grill, and storage space.
- Characteristic food truck details, such as the skylights and vents.
- Skylights remove for access to the interior!
- Seats one driver.
