This is my version of an old NYC style Taxi cab and I thought it would be fun to put a little lego Robert De Niro in it. It's just loosely based on the original cab and I've put my own take on it.
It's 5 studs wide and comfortably seats driver and passenger minifigs along with luggage.
Building note: The "Taxi" tile is from set 608 which my parents got me back in 1979 when I was just 4 years old.
That means the tile is 31 years old.
Boy, do I feel old?
Wow, that's so cool, a 5-wide "Checker" Taxi. Great job! :-)) P.S.: I'm sure I have the Taxi sign, too. I think I've seen it a few weeks ago when I was looking for bricks in my old LEGO boxes in the basement...
Fantastic job Andrew ! I aggree with Eric and Lawson B. This car has very smooth shapes as well as great details and you used excellent SNOT techniques to get this awsome result. I can only say one more think : keep them coming!
he,he,he,come on over and have some fun,with CRAZY TAXI!!!this reminds me of that sega game!,your taxi rocks!,it looks great!,retro and mean,why the case emplacement?,coul dt you find a way to make the trunk open?,the part story is also very nice!,too bad i did nt keep mine!,very inspiring work andy!,someday,i ll refine my public transport fleet,and i ll remember your design!
Andrew, In my honest opinion, this MOC puts you in another catagory altogether. This is an outstanding build! There are so many great details. The paint scheme is particularly well done. It really does have the feel of the Checker cabs from my youth. I regulary see a Checker station wagon on the roads around where I live. The thing is an awesome beast! Regards, your friend, Eric.
The title picture is so awesome and really caught my attention! I love when people know how to effectively present a creation, putting it in scene so that one just has to look at it. You achieved right that by both the picture and the slogan - great job!
A nice little cab, too, BTW. Love the old-school design, and the fact that it is 5-wide. I yet have to get around and try a 5-wide car myself, but as you know, I´m really into aircraft right now - and, as always, trucks... :)
I´m currently working on an impressive aircraft design... Best regards, Steffen
