A new online film shows how Lego Technic scaled a giant Volvo wheel loader down into a miniature model.HoneyIShrunkTheWheelLoaderV

With 1,600 individual pieces and the largest individual element ever created for the brand, the remote-control Volvo L350F wheel loader can lift more than 1kg in its bucket and drive over challenging terrain like the real thing.

The film talks to the development team behind Lego Technic’s biggest machine for 2014 – from both Lego and Volvo – charting their passion for getting their latest model as close a representation of the real machine as possible. It also follows Lego Technic’s Niels Henrik Horsted, head of marketing, and design manager Jeppe Juul Jensen as they conduct hands-on research, visiting the Volvo factory and a construction site and operating a L350F themselves.
