A specialist vehicle, used by the Little Green Men to transport shipping containers across the vast factory floor on Magrathea.
About this creation
When the Little Green Men started to work on Magrathea certain items of equipment had to be modified in order to conform to their religious objection to applying direct drive to a wheel. The standard Container Carriers were modified by Llwyngwril System's vehicle design department, using special outboard engines. The resulting vehicles were strange, unique and surprisingly safe and effective.
In this archive photo we see a long container, transporting Norway to the factory floor during the construction of the Earth Mark I.
Ancient archive footage of the machine in action can be view by clicking this link to Flickr or YouTube below.
FOURTH WALL STUFF
This is the third in my series of strange vehicles for the Little Green Men. They're nappy, na´ve souls and therefore easy prey for the notorious Vehicle Design Department of Llwyngwril Systems. I'm trying to come up with as many ways as possible of powering their vehicles and weird and unusual ways.
Absolutely brilliant David! I was trying to think what those rear wheels did and was smiling ear to ear at this creep across the table. It's hilarious to see it move foward and then drag its wheels back. Awesome!

BTW David, will there be a space classic contest this year?
Hi Mario, We're pretty sure that there will be a CS Pocket Money contest this year but if it happens it will be on Flickr not MOCpages. Sadly most people who might enter have left the 'pages and also MOCpages is too unreliable nowadays. I'll create an advert for tge contest and post it as a MOC on MOCpages, if the contrst runs, so that people will know where it's happening.

OK, David, that propulsion system is totally cool -- even if the Little Green Men are too quick to settle. If you embed that video at the top of this page, the likes will go through the roof!
Thank you. I think that I'm going to have to get a YouTube account, so that I can embed videos like you do. I think that of everything that I've built in Lego, this is the thing that really needs the video to explain exactly what it is.
