ox Recreating all kinds

ox Recreating all kinds of vehicles and machines using Lego Technic pieces is a consuming passion for 13-year-old Arvid Hall from Örby, Sweden. What he’s most proud of is that they’re all fully functional! On a visit to Malwa International AB, a manufacturer of modern forestry equipment, Arvid got to see the six-wheeled Malwa 560 Forwarder. The idea of building a functioning model of the all-wheel-drive A LITTLE MECHANIC’S BIG PROJECT forwarder with its articulated frame steering was born, much to the delight of Malwa’s owner and MOTOREX user, Magnus Wallin. There was much drawing, calculating, and study of Lego’s parts range, and the project swallowed up Arvid’s entire allowance. For a long time the four back wheels were unavailable in the right size. But now they’re ready and installed. A fascinating YouTube video is proof that the model is in no way inferior to the genuine article. • DID YOU KNOW THAT DOUMONT R.J. MOTORS… …was one of MOTOREX’s first European importers in Belgium? Doumont R.J. Motors was founded in 1953 by brothers René and Julien Doumont. The business started out selling light bulbs to auto and motorcycle repair shops, but the owners soon noticed the need for top-quality lubricants. In the 1970s, the company began importing MOTOREX, successfully selling the Swiss products exclusively in small packaging directly to customers. Today René Doumont’s grandsons Xavier (left) and Fabien (right) run the business, whose product range includes wear parts, accessories and lubricants for motorcycles. René Doumont, now 87 years old, is still active in the background, proud of the long successful history of his little jewel of a family business in Charleroi. • ottorex 22
