Mod of official set 5580 using additional parts.
The original Model Team truck [http://www.brickset.com/detail/?Set=5580-1](Highway Rig) was released in 1986 (some markets in 1990).

It started the era of 12 stud wide Model Team trucks and was followed by [http://www.brickset.com/detail/?Set=5590-1](5590 Whirl and Wheel Super Truck) in 1990, and [http://www.brickset.com/detail/?Set=5591-1](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.
The model here 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 Several parts have been replaced by modern equivalents.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 the Model Team Truck standard and works together with all my trailers.
