5865 (Alt. #2) Top Fuel Dragster
A Top Fuel dragster built only using the parts of mini Creator Set #5865 (green lorry), including some tire stretching
About this creation
I'm still playing around with my mini Creator sets. The next idea I had was a Top Fuel Dragster. I used the parts of the green lorry set 5865 to build it:

That's a big V8 there in the back ;-)



If you think, these tires aren't parts from the set, then take a 2nd look ;-)

I used Hot Rod's tire stretching technique for the rear tires. I needed a cup of hot water and a pair of pliers to stretch the 2nd set of tires enough to fit on the wheels. You may consider this an illegal move, but for me it's OK :-))


The rear end is not very stable, the rear wing and the engine are connected to the rest of the model using only one 1x1 round plate.

The wing looks a little twisted on this photo as it's hold in place only on one side with a 1x1 SNOT brick. Well, these are the limits I had to accept using only the parts of the small set.

So this is my 5865 Top Fuel Dragster. I hope you like it.

And I wish a

Happy New Year

to everyone!!!

Haha good idea. I would really like to buy the new orange creator bike. But I would have to buy two sets so I could build a big ca... Omg what is wrong with me!? I am allowed to build something other than a car right? ;). Hopefully we wont need to use joost's new word that often ;).

Quoting MortalSwordsman . ... An alternate would be a great distraction. Maybe I should build a big ca.... No! What am I saying. ;).
Maybe your mocblock (Thanks for the word, Joost) is already gone ... ;-)) or maybe you just have to buy the yellow roadster set #5767 to do both things :-))

I didn't know that you could do this with the tires! Dragsters are weird looking vehicles, and yours looks funny too. :o) ... And a Happy New Year.
