Big V8-powered work vehicle!
About this creation
After too many bricklink orders of lime green (why did I have to pick a not-so-common colour???) I finally finished this ute. It is 57 studs long and 20 studs wide. Not sure of the piece count, but it's alot!
It's relatively sturdy with the only real weak points being the doors (I couldn't get hinges in lime, so they are held on by a black hinge in the racing stripe, so come off pretty easily). The doors, bonnet, tray cover and tray gate all open.
Lime was the closest I could get to the Acid colour used on these cars.

Enjoy. Please post C&C below (I know I'm not getting any better with my photography :( ).

Raised bonnet to fit the V8 engine.




Tray lid and tail opened...


... and closed again.





I did rush the interior a bit (and it shows, I know). It took me so long to get this done (due to the size and waiting on multiple bricklink orders) that by the time I got to the interior I was a bit over it. I've decided that this will be my last large scale car (at least for the moment). The building time and piece-count is getting too much. So I'm going to drop down to a mid-scale size now. Hopefully then I will get more building done and less waiting on bricklink orders.

Quoting Starscream Soundwave Thats cool! You have so many lime bricks, I have about four :(
I bought heaps of lime. It's a very under-used colour and for some reason I really like it. Can be challenging to use though as alot of parts are not available in this colour.

Studs? What is this fascination and fear of the stud. To each their own! Very cool build! Z

Quoting MortalSwordsman . Another great build from you. I love the colour and functions, and it is great to find another car builder that is not scared of studs ;). I enjoyed reading your homepage, we have a very similar priorities.
Thanks mate. I try to keep studs to a minimum, but sometimes (like this build) it's fun to just not worry about that.

Hey Peter, Thank you very much for taking the time to write the very constructive feedback. There's always room for improvement and you've pretty much pointed out everything that I already felt unhappy about with this model. The lime did cost me way more than I care to think about, however it was awesome to build an entire model with an uncommon colour (I was thinking about orange for this model, but changed my mind in favour of Lime). I will most likely pull this apart and rebuild (in the same colour) as a mid-scale. My future plans involve some more Aussie cars, including a highway patrol car, although this will most likely be a Commodore. I may attempt an FG Falcon at some point. The FG is an awesome looking car and it's quite unfortunate it (and the falcon in general) hasn't received the recognition it deserves. Thanks again mate. Sam

Hi Sam. Nice work on the Falcon. A few points that would improve your model if you were going to go back and change it, or build a new one. 1. The nose in front of the A-pillar is really quite low, inspite of the large engines fitted. This should make the car more 'pointy' at the front end. 2. The body has a separate cab relative to the tray (so there should be a split). This leaves the wheelbase broken up visually. The door and the small rear side window are part of the cab, and the tray follows on behind. 3. Nice work on the main lamps in the headlight unit, but the indicator section wraps into the from fender a reasonable way (and should appear clear). 4. The front facia should blend more with the nose/lights, with a cutdown into the bumper for the XR lights. The lower nose should help with this. 5. You are aware of the interior shortcomings. I am not suprised that you ran out of motivation after such a large car (and the lime must have cost a fortune). I helped design the following FG model Falcon, so I have a keen eye for the detail. Good work, I look forward to seeing your mid scale cars (hopefully some Australian models too). Peter
