The 1956 PANG Saddleback truck is the only 3-wheeled truck that didn't use a motorcycle engine ever mass produced. Designed by the Pavlovian AutomobilistÓ NÝcktremmik GŚenstphabrik (PANG) in Pandolvia just after the Second World War, the PANG Saddleback was designed as a mule-replacement in a country famous of mule-breeding. Originally a work truck capable of carrying heavy loads on Pandolvia's narro mountainous roads, the truck spread into Africa in the 1960s, usually following Soviet or Costa Guano forces fighting in the brush wars of that continent.
Encyclopedia Britannica, 1980 Edition


(Drawing Credit Jason Torchinsky/Jalopnik 2017)

The idea and the drawing cribbed from this awesome Jalopnik article https://jalopnik.com/an-imaginary-car-from-an-imaginary-country-1976-pang-s-1819248813. I changed the date from 1976 to 1956 to fit better with the games I play.

As I just got a 3D printer (an Ender 2) and am teaching myself 3d modelilng, I will be creating what amounts to a model kit and then painting that, all in 1:56 (28mm) for Africa 1960s.

Why is this ill-advised? Who in their right mind would design, let alone mass produce, as 3-wheel truck? They are tippy as hell and putting a single rear-wheel where the weight is even dumber. And then you go and split the cargo compartment in two.

I didn't come up with the design, that was Jason Torchinsky at Jalopnik. I am just taking his vision and turning it into (plastic) reality

Work so far: I have built (and rebuilt) most of the back of the truck. First draft:

EDIT: Fixed image link

I didn't like the height of the middle section, so I completely rebuilt it and the current version now looks like this:


Their have been a few questions about how to build things. Here is the middle section of the PANG with all the parts exploded out and grouped:


As you can see middle section is made up of 6 parts - 2 of which are "holes" that cut away the solid pieces. Each of the parts quite a simple shape, but when you combine them together (group them in TinkerCAD terms) you essentially do unions and differences to end up a final object

I nice to see these 3D projects coming together. See the process as such.

I know, I meant how did you come up with the idea of doing that.
Interesting stuff this design sequence.  8)

Watching this one with interest. I can see one or two of these running around a science fiction mining outpost setting - bonkers, but fun  8)

I agree.
He has me thinking of how to make some for my own use.
They are brilliant!

So I've started work on the front. Why major annoyance with TinkerCAD (over real CAD programs such as even 123d) is the ability to loft, sweep and extrude. Essentially take a 2d schematic and turn it into a 3d object. I am going to have to creative to build the front end of this beast, which is lots of curves with curves.



I am really not a fan of the height to width ratio right now. The source material has a bit of a conflict on this. The front profile makes it look like a VW Kombi (taller than wide) but the rear 3/4 view is wider than tall. Shall have to experiment with both to see what looks good.
