Oh my, a day full of doubt... it is a nice moc, but is it resembling the real???
About this creation










What a curvy front! Maybe I should have kept this upper snapshot a secret?



Evolutions. The theme of todays update. Above the certain evolution in the rear of the vehicule. Below you can see the second had already a front, but also the rear top has changed a lot.


These two shows easier differences : (The sides!.. Look at the sides!!! :-) )
Oh yes, doors will open.


Below from SNOT to SOB (Studs On Bottom!)
And yes, it is another rear axle.



Above the oldest picture, below the newest. Should I choose left or right?


Detail further below. I like the new bottom rear thing...








This an entry for the ; 'Classic Race Teams' Group
, I was asked by the great Mortalswordsman
to join his team : 'Alan Mann Ford'.
Please go look after his magnificent transporter
, and please look at the magnificent work of the other group members.

PS: I changed tactics, and will change only the existing preview page. Who will look more often and notice the work in progress? :-)

Very cool Joost, excellent shaping! For me it really looks like the original. Maybe you could make the rear window in black, you would have more possible parts to use. Keep on this way, I can't wait to see it built with real bricks, now :-)) Great job!

Hi Joost. Very well thank you but tired from a hard week of work. Hope you and yours are well ;). Glad you like them, I know they are not very technical but they have been great fun to build and play with. I canít believe how popular they have been. I have one more mini moc to post before I restart the GT40. If you are happy to send them via email that would be great. I could leave a comment on this page with my email address on. Maybe you can delete the comment once you have read it. I canít wait to see it, it looks fantastic and very accurate so far. keep going. Joe

Quoting DeTomaso Pantera This car is going to be a sight to behold ;-) The side looks amazing, but I hope you realise it's not going to come cheap.
...a sight to behold... that's for sure (but I did have to look it up :-) . thx ! For the bow bricks about 0.08Ä/piece. my only hope is that I only used parts in colours ever made...

Quoting Thomas Graafland It looks like the LDD version is almost comleted!! Do you already know when you going to build it in real bricks? :-D
Hi Thomas, I've got still a lot to do, For now, because this build is of course about the body, I'm putting those bricks together, then I hope to attach them, and then i hope to add the details. As I've never done a car like this, it is all trial and error (1 example :3 hours for the front corner, and maybe it is going to be rebuild). When it is finished, I know which parts I have to achieve... Yes, patience, I know... Thank you for your comments, and for following my moc, I appreciate it very much!

A cool update! Very clever parts usage for the suspensions and a very nice design of the front. This one will be a real beauty!

Fantastic Joost. This is getting better and better every time I look.

another great update, it looks incredibly good so far. the front end looks like it will be a challenge though.

You tiled the bottom...? Honestly, that's got to be one of the best things I've ever seen. I really appreciate it when people take advantage of the UNLIMITED parts of LDD! =D Tiles everywhere! XD
  January 18, 2012
Great progess, Joost. Can't wait to see it finished! I like the curves on the rear end. The front seems to be a tough job, there are a lot of curves and angles... Keep on!

Quoting MortalSwordsman . Wow Joost this is looking fantastic. I much prefer the left hand side. I am not sure what is happening in the bottom view (where you mention the other rear axle) but the new version looks excellent. I love how you are creating the curves on top. Are you planning opening doors? Or are you going for aesthetics rather than function? Either way it is going to be brilliant.
Hi Joe, The whole bottom of the car is upside down, to create the curve, that is what I ment with SOB :-) . Yes, doors are opening. I am trying to make the engine compartiment to open too, but I am not sure if LDD will ever show the result (hinge tool blocks after a time). Ok left hand side it will be, thank you very much!!!

Ö(Am I still talking English?) hahaha Your English must be better than mine I didnít even get the brick pun. Doh! I still think your arch is fine. But maybe I donít get the problem. lol

Quoting DeTomaso Pantera ...stumbling block lol ...
I had to look it up, but this is a great pun, LOL :-) Hey Guys, thank you for your opinions and help, I really appreciate this!!!
  January 16, 2012
Hmmm stumbling block lol Looks cool as it is anyway. I look forward to the next installment :-)

Quoting DeTomaso Pantera This is the arch I talk about, the one problem might be the really annoying stud sticking out of the top. http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=2339
and, for the worse, the brick is Twelve plates high, as I need to have six. I was thinking about : http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=88292 , but that isn't available in red, and I seem not to like the inner wheel not to be round . (Am I still talking English?)
  January 16, 2012
I think DeT has the best idea (below) but not I'm sure if it'll work. SNOT is another option. It's OK as it is, but I immediately noticed the curve wasn't there.

Quoting Ape Fight One thing I have noticed ...
Hi Ape, thanks for your review! do you, by any chance, have a proposal? I seem not to find any suitable bricks on my LDD catalogue. For now I soluted it with a two plate slope with rhe same round arches as I use in the door, but inddeed it doesn't have the same long slope as per real.
  January 16, 2012
...following your comment. I am not sure if this is what Ape means: Maybe he is referring to the curved sides of the car. The arch you have used is square or flat (straight up - not curved like the sides of the car). I see his point but I think it looks fine as it is. I assume you will curve the top? Similar to the previous version. Personally I would stick with this arch, or build arches from standard bricks and inverted slopes (the old fashioned way). Hahahaha this is the problem with wips ;). Good luck my friend :)

Looks great Joost! I think the solution to the arch problem Ape mentioned is in the arches I used in the tree I just added. You know the staggered half arch thingies lol. But I would sure like to have this car outside my front door :-)
  January 16, 2012
Progress is looking good. One thing I have noticed is the use of that big arch brick for the rear wheel wells means you can't do the door slope as per the real car - you may have to change this in the next version.

Hi Joost. Yet more improvements :). really like the engine and the suspension arms look great - similar technique to mine but with different pieces. Is this 15 or 16 wide? I might 'borrow' this technique if it is because my technique is too wide for a 16 wide car. Stop saying wide Joe!!! As Senator says will it be strong enough? Word up ;)

Well... it sure are improvements!! The car looks really amazing!! :-D
  January 15, 2012
Keep up the good work, I like the engine and such. The suspension arms wouldn't be strong enough on their own in real life though(I don't think?)

Quoting Thomas Graafland What happend to the first photo? Is that a new car or a improved version of the old one? :-)
:-) I hope it are improvements, that was my goal. :-) Just some details I already worked on, and indeed a new technique on the side of the vehicle.

Very strong start. It seems to me that the front of this thing has to be the biggest challenge. Looking forward to see how you tackle that windscreen. Looking good so far.

Hi Joost hope you are well. I will always look out for your stuff :). Ok this is getting better and better. You have improved the rear corner. And the rear window is looking great. Also much better with the white background. Thanks for the mention, I am delighted to have you on board.

Hey folks, thanks for the comments!, I will certainly build this one in real, and, as requested (no it was already my intention: - ) ) I will certainly add a complete LDD. Whatever is there first, the second one will be finished.

Haha Joe, As Malte said to me the transporter will have to pick it up, the P48 is not road legal ;-) On a more serious note, you could just download the instructions once Joost has finished this beauty. Thats a really nice idea. The front looks very similar to the GT40!

  January 4, 2012
The more I look at this the more similarities I see with his lightweight GT40. Did you try the different sized rear wheels also? Joost I have an idea - If you could produce some basic instructions (or even a few LDD snap shots) I could recreate this for a real team photo. I have plenty of red and yellow Lego. What do you think? Just a crazy idea. Failing that you could always come to England :).

Joost this is looking awesome already. The curves look very accurate so far. That rear corner looks extremely challenging. Really like the lights and exhaust. It is going to look so cool on top of the Transporter ;). I Can't wait for the next update, or the finished article, what ever comes sooner. I am also using a very similar diagram (of a GT40) to help with size and dimensions etc. In fact I use them for all my mocs if I can find them. Sometimes the dimensions are quite surprising and not noticeable on normal photos. Thanks for your comments by the way, I responded on your 2cv. Great work my friend.
  January 4, 2012
This looks cool already! Le back looks great and boy has Joe set you a challenge, Good luck Joost you're doing great so far but i recommend to save the rest for a surprise, WIPs take the impact away from the finished article. I'm sure it's going to look great!
