BRE Racing Datsun 510
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.








Thanks for viewing, add salt to taste!

Excellent work! I especially love those SNOT stripes on the side (yes, on the car, not on your shirt). 5/5

Some very nice SNOT details in there, especially the stripes on the side. A little wide, but a great recreation all round :)

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 :-)

Awesome! I really wanted to build this but I don't have nearly enough white. Good job on the stripes!

I love the diagonal brick-built stripes on the side, they're really well done. Overall, this is a great looking car!

Love this car. Lots of detail and the design. Dont mind if I make the one in Forza 4 look like this one? It will be an awesome little race car :D

I disagree with Apefight. Legos are unforgiving when you are trying to scale them. Sometimes you just have to look beyond the bricks. This is a work of art, don't change a thing, Chris

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.

ravishingly beautiful!

very good, however some parts are a little chalky, like the back window frame. But that engine is excellent, easily the best part!

Excellent car!Very neat!In my opinion the most impressive part is the engine.Keep up the great work!

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 ;-)

Well this is again, a very very nice build. I especially like the half stud work on the rear heck, but the engine is really excellent!
  January 23, 2012
BTW you're photos look a lot better and brighter, all you need now are those sheets of A1 to cover the black hole at the bottom of your shots :-P

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!

Impressive! I like all the SNOT, it really permits some nice details. Great work!

Lovely stuff - the diagonal side stripes are awesome. The only hing is - it looks a little too wide in relation to its height - they were small cars. Nevertheless, 5 smilies - and good photos too ; )
