Because I have never seen a LEGO car with working windows.
About this creation
The car on MOCpages are getting more realistic by the day, so I thought by myself; I will build a car with working windows.
I didn't want to upload picture's of only the system for the powered windows.
Yep, that's right! The front windows are raised and lowered by an M-motor; 1 for the driver side and 1 for the passenger side.
First of all, lets get things straight: The system I used is very simple, so if you use it in one your future MOC's, I would appreciate it if you mentioned my name (Brick Ster).
To find out more, take a look a the pic's.
Just want to say that it took me more than 12 hours to construct, build and color the car.
The window system just took me an 1 - 2 hours to build
Notice the windscreen wipers.
The left hand side of the car.
The rear side; it has an opening trunk (see later), a windscreen wiper and a spot for the licence plate.
The right hand side of the car.
Here you can see the windows are open. I admit they don't open alot but they do open, and that is my point.
The doors open. You can see that the doors are 3-wide and that the windows aren't closed.
Front view with all the doors open.
You can see the system is pretty simple; I use gears to raise and lower the windows.
The system for the back is to manually turn the top gear (no not the TV show!), there is a handle in front of it.
Here you can see the system for the front. You can see an M-motor touches the gear when the door is closed. A negative point is that you can only raise or lower the window when the door is closed.
Everything that opens open.
Side view of the car with everything open; kinda funny looking if you ask me.
The engine block; the blue striping rocks in my opinion.
The car has steering. When I have more time I will make it full RC-powered.
The mighty interior!
The cockpit. Ready? Take off!
The backseat and the trunk. I did my best to hide the wheels.
Ready for the road! shot
The system isn't perfect, but it has potential (that what I think). Feel free ask me more.
Feel also free to rate and comment. Thanks for watching and reading.
