Small British supercar with a noble name - Noble M12. It may look small, but even TopGear guys were surprized, how quick this thing is and how perfect is the handling.
About this creation
While searching for some rare cars to get built, I saw this one quite a time before. But it has different way of opening the bonnet and trunk, than my other cars, so I was affraid, that this isn't possible. So I chose Maybach Exerelo instead. But I still had a fealing, that I'll return to this car. And then I say Ryan Link's Ferrari Testarossa, which had similar way of opening stuff. Since then the feeling turned into goal. And here it is - tough as I expected, but I'm very proud of the outcome. I wont even mention, how many different and new techniques I had to use to achieve this. But it was worth it. I can tell you boys and girls now... don't be affraid to push your limits. Be paitent, try hundred times, but it is worth that. For instance, front fender - it took me about one and a half weak to build it... but I did it! If only I had ANY white plate 1 x 2 with one stud. This miss led me to an other idea... for rear mudguard I turned inside out of usual the mudguard. And so I could continue quite a bit. So let's see:
This might be also the most detailed engine from me. I can say, that piping work was very fun, but everthing is connected just the way it should be, there are no free endings.
For such a good loocking car the interior is surprisingly simple. But it doesn't mean, that it was easy to build. Again, took some time to figure, how to put three "clocks" into two stud width!
Bottom and closeup to exhaust system!
And finaly, but at last, everthing open. Sorry, there is no closeup for cooling system at the front, but you can sheck it out at the W.I.P pictures, there's nothing changed in there.
W.I.P pictures (a little bit wrong order, but you will figure it out easyly):
Probably the toughest car from me to date. It has so many small curves and those mudguards... auch.. that was a pain in the a**. But let's start from the very beginning.
Best of creativity in your own MOCs and remember, don't be affraid to push your limits. You may succeed at the first try, you may not (mostly you wont), but you are winner eigher way: couse if the outcome isn't what you expected, next you now to try different way at first time. And you my see some other use of the current outcome! It is fascinating, how many different results you can get with those simple, squerish bricks!
See you in an other month! Any feedback appreciated and welcome! Chau!
Wow. I actually never thought someone would be interested in it and I never completed it unfortunately. The digital replica was completed but without the hose parts which is really tricky. I'm sorry but the PC on which I had that work broke down and most likely it will never be picked up again. :(
Have you completed the instructions and parts list for this Noble?
You promised you would? Please let me know.
I love this car so much and actually own one. So it would be great to be able to create a model of it.
you build awsome cars super details everywhere you look its good and beautefull.
the collers ar nice too.
i love your cars.
but you renault magnum is great.
i try some times to build a super car but it never work.
but i will some try it again.
ps would you like to build an other truck??
This is great! Love Noble and if i had the money i would have one of these over any other supercar. Definately a Porsche and Ferarri beater. This must have taken ages and you should be proud of the outcome, some really interesting techniques used here. I like the fact that your cars are all white.
I've just come out of a dark age and am hooked again but its going to take a while to catch up to this standard because of all the new pieces. Just created another supreme british car the Caterham. Please check it out, your comments/feeback would be most welcome.
Looking forward to seeing more from you...love the Renault truck too, you must have spent a fortune on bricklink ;)
I believe I already commented on this fantastic car of yours, but I wanted to say again how great it is! I know it is a different car, but looking at this after building a Noble myself, I can tell how much more work you put into this, the result is so clean, and the shape everywhere is perfect, makes me want to go back and rebuild my own! Oh well...
Also, in response to your post on my Noble, I actually am not too familiar with flickr, but I may have to look into it, thanks!
You well oughta be proud of yourself, man. This thing looks perfect! The usage of those cheese tiles are simply brilliant! And the photo with everything open is pure art! Congratulations! It must've really been a challenging build! I could tell from all of your WIP pictures... So, again, great job, and keep up that fabulous job! <Komioh Ransack>
Definitely a fantastic MOC! I love the choice, the color and of course the result.
Interesting technique you used for the mudguards.
My suggestion here to improve it are 1) double the height of the side air intakes on the doors 2) increase the rear bumper size to better match the real thing. Currently the spoiler is extending a bit too much.
Once again great job, your MOC is really unique: it is standing out among the many Ferraris and Lamborghinis around here.
PS: Very appreciated are also your WIP pictures!
mmmmh,i think your building technique,once refined,will revolutionize the way people build today! there is no doubt in my mind that this
creation challenges even the best car builders here,and that s saying something!
thanks for your comments
Thank you all very much! Thanks to all of you this car in a less than weak have made it to the number one and I'm very happy about that, since this is my favorite among my MOCs too. Happy building and BTW - happy new school year :)
i must adopt some of the ingenious building techniques used in this beauty. And order more smooth parts, cheese slopes and plates. You have turned into of of the brightest stars in the heaven of excellent car builders... (how poetic I am today. No, honestly, this is amazing.)

wow - I love it !
would you sell me a kit / parts needed to build one !
When I finish the instruction, there will be everything, part list, steps - everything. You'll be able to buy all the parts you already don't have from (for example) bricklink or any nearby Lego Store. Ps: Already started...
Quoting Martin Bond
Any chance you could build me one in Silver for cash :-)
I plan to create a step-by-step instruction for this one. Than it'll be for sale and awailable for anyone with bricklink account (which is free btw). But I don't promise anything in the near weak. It's not that easy to create one :)
Thanks Darrius! This is very kind from you! And thanks to all of you. You all guys are the reason I push my limits. You can't even imagine how proud a simple guy like me can be if his creation gets so much good attention! I couldn't even go to sleep without smile on my face! Thank you all for that! =)
This looks amazing! You've put some excellent techniques to use here, and the results are great. The front, beautiful! All of the functional elements, very well done. One of the cars on my "to build" list is a Noble, and for a second I thought you had beat me to it, but it's a different one. I also would like to point out that you have translated your proficiency quite well to this scale; most of your cars are larger as I recall? I'm glad to have been even a small "inspiration" for this magnificent car, and I appreciate the reference. All around a great car, I can't wait to see more from you!
WOW! It's been what, 10 minutes?? And already 6 smilies! Thanks guys!
Ps: Sorry T.K, I don't watch TopGear. I just acsidentaly run onto that video on YouTube while searching for real car's images! But thanks for nice comment!
