LEGO Technic 8284 Tractor / Dune Buggy

LEGO Technic 8284 Tractor Dune Buggy BoxLEGO Technic 8284 Tractor Set is another amazing construction with unique design and impressive looks. The large scale of this model comes from chunky tires and other bricks that total 872 pieces. Box shows 10-15 age recommendation, which means a higher level of difficulty.

LEGO Technic 8284 Tractor features engine with 4 moving cylinders, steering accessed via top-knob and detachable farm equipment, which can be lowered or raised and turns while the tractor moves. The shear size of the finished model is amazing, it's quite hard to hold it in one hand. Nice black-green color scheme complements the model

Technic 8284 Tractor is a complex build, challenging at times but rewarding in every way.  The mechanics are tightly packed living little space to install Power Functions inside, but that's the nature of the tractor's shape. With it's massive appearance it can handle any farm equipment you can throw at it, as long as you build it yourself.

LEGO Technic 8284 Dune Buggy B Model

This Technic 8284 Dune Buggy  is as impressive as the main model. Very well working chasis, gull-wing doors, boxer engine and this time a special space for electric motor and battery box. It also looks like it could handle any terrain and there is a nice trick with extending the length of the model for turning it into a low rider at the same time, amazig piece of engineering.

To sum up: LEGO Technic 8284 Dune Buggy / Tractor is two amazing models in one box, with manuals included for both (which sadly is not LEGO's custom anymore). The mechanics are interesting and useful. Power Functions will add a breath of life especially those with Remote Control.
