For once a have built a 16-wide car that isn't red or yellow... this time it's half white! =D
About this creation
First and foremost, NO! This is not the main photo, rather, this is the dawn of a new era. I have taken some 28 photos, and widdled them down to these 20 decent ones. This is the first stage of my new attempts at becoming... dare I say it... a better photographer! =O *whispers in the audience* *Say it ain't so* *Gasp!*
The frontical front, with nice shiny chrooooooooooooo-er.. sorry, just chrome.
The front again!?! yeah, you'll be seeing a good bit of repetition until I figure this out. =P
The side, with brick built stripes and a heaping helping of SNOT for the front quarter panels/fenders.
Nuther extra photo? Perfect time to point out that SNOT does infact mean Studs Not On Top, implying that the bricks' studs are facing horizontally or down. It does Not mean tiles! =) Just an interesting tidbit
The back bit, sure it looks simple.
Look closer, mainly at the license plate dent.
Does it still look simple(yeah, I know this is filler cuz I took too many back views)
Yeah cuz this is FILLER! Filler night! Do-do-dom-do-do-dum...
Opening stuffs, the trunk was a real stickler.
But wait... no doors? No dooors!?!? EGADS, MAN! WHAT WENT WRONG!?!? D=
The trunk, with bright-"Ima explode"-red racing gas tank.
The engine! I quite like this engine, even if it is an inline-4.
Spartan dashboard, I included a gap where a radio/AC/heat would've been in the stock car model. Still has a glovebox. =P
Limey racing seats, the perfect use for those hundred of lime studs from PAB. Also, credit to the amazing Mr. Malte for his chair design. (I have no clue if I built them the same way he does, but I reverse engineered his seats, so...yep)
This is all Ape Fight's fault. Yeah, that's right, sniped at the last minute! =P And I bet he was all "Oh boy, I haven't been blamed for a whole MOC!" =)
How are you gentlemen? All your base are belong to us.
The chassis, treated to my torsion bar technique on all four wheels.
I concur you choice of going to 16. 15 would have been extremely difficult.
And what are you talking about "a box"? You perfectly entered every curve of the original car in your moc. All two curves :-)
Fantastic, as always! The SNOT on the side looks really good! The front is lovely too! Definitely improvement on your photography skills, but the "photobox" thing is rather small. :) Keep it up (except your studs haha)! ~LB Jr.
No salt needed this has been cooked to perfection. Well almost perfect the rear window struts are my only minor gripe. Love the engine and the snot on the sides - but you have left some studs showing ;) only joking.
Oh goodness... I think in a perfect Lego world, it'd be 15.5 studs wide in the middle, tapering to 15.3 wide at the front and back. But if I went for an odd width, I'd have to redo the chrome bits on the grill since I only have them in 1X2grill plates. Either way, I like it. It's a fun car to try new stuff on since it's just a big... box! =)
Great car - dig those seats. Here's my two cents on the width debate - it probably is slightly wide for the scale BUT! If you'd built it otherwise it would probably look narrow, even though it isn't... Yeah, that makes sense ;-)
I love this! It's very cute! The colouring is really well done and it looks just like the real thing, I do agree with Ape but that's only minor. The engine looks great, i'm not too sure about those seats though, a bit bright for me lol. Easily another 5* car from you, clever Chinchilla!
