Pandora GTS-R
Old-school construction original design supercar...The Pandora GTS-R
About this creation
















This is the fifth car I have made. It took me four years very much part time and has about 3500 parts. It has an old school "big block" v-4 with adjustable timing on the quad cams. It has working pedal-operated clutch, a six speed manual and suspension adjustable for ride height, camber and strength. It has brakes operated by a pedal (which only work in theory...the car I am currently working on ought to work much better.) It also has an adjustable spoiler at the front and is a convertable with pneumatic scissor doors. I hope you like it. The design is original and there are certainly no plans. I'm currently working on a Le Mans style car having recently bought the largest F1 car and the large 4x4 off roader so watch this space...

Thanks Luke, I'm nearly finished my latest - an Aston Martin V8 Vantage - my first replica. No way can I make instructions - these things have 3,500 parts give or take!! I wouldn't even know how to start! Cheers
Quoting LUKE TATE Pretty sweet ride! Can you please make instructions on how to make cars like these?

Thanks mate, yes it is pneumatics - you can plug in a pump and add pressure or flick the valve to release it so you can effectively control the compression strength.
Quoting Jacob Shisler wow Jon...just as good as your Paragon GT1! tell me, is that pneumatics in the suspension?

Quoting Nils O. Wow, that's very impressive with some great Technic functions. The classic shaping has a cool look, too. The front view looks almost like a Scirocco Mk3. Great job! :-))
I think you must mean a Scirocco MK3 looks like my Pandora GTS-R!!!

This is awesome! I love the style and the functional elements, and just the size of it is seriously impressive.

Wonderful stuff. The technical features and the studded bodywork are perfect. I love how the roof integrates into the rear of the car.

To me "Old School Style" means studs up cladding and built using studded members (oh er) rather than the newer smooth stuff and weird "I don't fit anything without leaving awkward gaps" panels / scoop things. An advantage of the old school construction is it is easy to achieve a high degree of torsional rigidity. The chassis these cars have are way, way stiffer than what you can achieve using the newer components, but the construction is more limited, typically heavier and harder to fit together unconventionally. With the Paragon GT1LMP I tried to combine the best of both worlds using the old school parts to achieve rigidity where it was required (chassis/body/engine and gearbox mounting mainly) and to create a body with no unintentional gaps and new school parts for some of the technical parts such as the clutch, suspension, doors, transmission shifter mechanisms. The Pandora GTS-R sort of achieved that but to a lesser degree. What I really need however is some much stiffer springs as these things must weigh a good five kilos each and the standard lego springs, even accounting for force/distance effects of the suspension geometry are just too soft. This car uses pneumatics to compensate (and add variability). A really good, variable rate coil over shock absorber would be sweet - I might look at converting one from an R/C car at some point. Thanks for your interest!
Quoting Thomas Graafland Man i love it! this is your best MOC i've seen! You always talk about "old school style" but what does it mean? Can't wait to see more from you! :)

Why yes it does. But wait... introducing the Paragon GT1LMP...
Quoting Rhys Sharry WOOOAAAHH!! I'm amazed at the amount of detail and working parts you have in this car! Definitively worth the 4 years ai :) Oh, and I think I spied a little catch on the back of the inside of the doors. Does this work to keep the doors closed? Also. the front air intake looks alot like the front of my car :D Brilliant and original build 500/5 - Rhys

Me too, I like this creation very much. On the outside it looks very smooth and vert Lego Systemlike, but under the hood it is very strategically and well engineered build. New for me is the technique applied suspension.

Quoting Indra Samala Hi, Jon. You really a good lego creator. I really like your work, and I want to make a 3d version (non-lego) of Pandora GTS-R,and I will put your name on the credit. How do you think about it? I really like your design.
Sounds good mate and thanks for the compliments! I'm looking forward to seeing it. Alas I have to break my cars in order to make a new one so all I have now is the photos and memories... Would be great to have a 3D model as well. Drop me an email at jonfoulkes@hotmail.com

Stunning! Old-school meets huge-scale! That's got to be one of the biggest, most detailed LEGO cars I've ever seen. And a beautifully shaped car on top of all that. Welcome to MOCpages!!

Impressive, very impressive. However.. I think the hood end and front lights could use some rounding. But all those funcional features = WOWOWOWOW!!!

I'm pretty keen on making a small six speed (or 5 + R) gearbox. If anyone has any good hints or even plans that woulod be great. RIght now I'm down to about 8 studs wide by 11 long and about 6 stus high but would like to get much smaller. I have the 4 x 4 off roader set with the 5 + R gearbox but want to get something made that is quite a bit smaller than Lego's. Let me know...

Now this is something else, one of the best I've ever seen, it's great to see those lovely studs appear from time to time, although I don't like this scale usualy, but as I told you; this is something else, keep it up.

Thanks very much! I'm expecting my Le Mans car to be finished within a year (these things take ages to make as you can imagine and I unfortunately have to work, raise a child etc...) so look out for that too. It's quite a step up and is trying to mix the new studdless construction with the old school studded pieces which make for a better body.

Wow. That is the best thing I've seen on MOCpages in ages. Astounding technical features (and scale!) and all the better for using old-school studdy bricks! 10/10
