This is my first creation on MOCpages... hope you like it! it started as a copy of johannes' (www.mocpages.com/home.php/4267) ‘67 chevy camaro, but eventually, i converted it to a massively overtuned dragster!
ps: PLEASE DO NOT CONSIDER THE LACK OF CONSISTENT COLORING IN YOUR RATING!! THANKS IN ADVANCE!!
This is the beginning… a simple chevy camaro by Johannes.
I saw this engine lying around (it’s from my LEGO Red Fury dragster), which gave me the general idea.
I tried to copy it a well as I could with my limited parts, and managed this little baby.
However, I didn’t like the top part, because it looked so “empty”… so I made two superchargers (again, close copies of johannes’ work) and put them on top.
I fit the engine in the car, and I think it looks rather cool.
Only then I noticed the lack of exhausts, so I created these side-pipe style exhausts… one for each cylinder.
To complete the dragster look, I added an anti-wheelie bar, though I don’t like it very much, chances are I’ll change it soon.
A nice side view, it shows all the changes rather well.
All in all, I’m rather pleased with this MOC, though I’ll probably change it some soon, especially the anti-wheelie bar and the interior, where I’m thinking of mounting a NOS-bottle or two… perhaps bigger rear wheels, though I’m not sure on that one yet.
theres some great attitude in this car! reminds me a lot of 60-70's plastic model kits and that outrageous showcar era.
nice to see how my model comes to life like this, too bad you couldnt build real colourscheme :(
