Woodstock (1930 Ford Woody Wagon with instructions)
This is my first moc in 18 months & I wanted to do something special. I like hot rods but all of my rods are fantasy ones, this one is my first rod that is based on a real car, the 1930 Ford Woody Wagon. I'm really happy with the way it has turned out. As with all my LDD mocs, there are no floating bricks & it was made using only buyable pieces. I have had to modify a lot of my techniques to get the grille looking right, I've probably used more parts then I needed to but I wanted it to be solid & stable, the only unstable part would be the doors, there are no brown hinges in LDD, so I've used black ones and placed them at the bottom of the doors. Please rate & comment :)
About this creation


I knew once I got the front end right, the rest of the car would be easy because it's pretty square, but (as we all know) making something round out of square bricks is hard, & the smaller the scale the harder it is, but I'm very happy with the way the front end turned out.






I was a little apprehensive about using the dark grey for the front grille, but it seemed to turn out ok. I did want it in light grey but the pieces are not available in LDD





As you can see here I opted for a white on red interior, it felt more roddish to me that way. I was going to make them tan, but there was already a lot of brown from the wood panels




I've used dark grey gille plates on the running board as scuff plates & it came out better than I thought it would




I don't normally show the underside of my stuff (I'm not that kind of girl) but here it is... enjoy




From this angle you can see that the rear fenders get wider as they go below the body line, just like a real Woody




Here's the radiator fan...




And here are the two carburettors on top of the small block Chevy V8




This is the best pic (in my opinion)




With the doors open you can see the single bench seat. I was going to put in a couple of buckets, but a bench seemed to make more sense to me. The steering wheel is a large dish plate, I did use a steering wheel piece but the diameter was too small



With the tailgate open you can see the butte space is immense!



I know most Woodies don't have suicide doors but I like suicide doors



I was considering putting a blower on this rod but it would've ruined the overall look I Think



I was going to have a hardwood frame with pine panels, but it the dark brown kinda' merged with the black, with having the pine frame, it outline the wood & makes it more of a feature



This moc is more narrow than my usual at 14 studs across, but the Woodies are a narrow car



No Photoshopping here, to get the look I wanted, I put the 1x2 angle pieces behind the grille, so when viewed from the front the bottom of the grille looks angular & not flat





The recessed exhaust pipes are necessary to allow the tailgate to open



I'm very happy with the wheel base, & the length of the hood, originally it was 1 stud longer but the space between the fan & the grill was too much. So, on the morning of this upload date, I rebuilt the whole front end & reduced the length to what it is now, I also reduced the rear overhang by 2 studs from what I originally had



Here's a real one for comparison



I was considering raising the rear end to put the car on an angle, but when I finished it, I found liked the low profile so I kept it.

Please rate & comment.
Thanks

Thanks to everyones comments & for not dissing LDD. It's appreciated when someone recognises the skill that has gone into any moc. Real or digital.





I've decided to upload the instructions in the hopes that someone with the right bricks will be able to build it :)

Quoting Marcus Paul Great Woody, very nice shaping. Well done!

Quoting Senator Chinchilla . Very logical reason for LDD. =P I really like the shaping, and the wooden panels are done well. All in all, very spiffy!
I know right? The mark-up in LDD is ridiculous, My '32 Roadster (minifig size) would cost $40 Australian to buy in LDD, if it where a set it would be less than half that!

Quoting Ape Fight Great job. A difficult build (even in LDD) and a very original one. I wouldn't normally give 5 stars to an LDD MOC, but this is brilliant. 5/5
Thanks a lot for the 5/5 Ape. I like it when people don't dismiss LDD as just virtual & recognise the skill that goes into digital mocs. I still reckon this would be easier in real bricks though due to the tactile feed back of a physical object, & the absence of floating bricks. This is another moc I'd love to build but the mark up for ordering in LDD is ridiculous & there are no brick shops in Australia :(

Problem with that is, it costs money, & I don't have any. LDD is all I've got :(
