My 4-wide version of the Group B Rally monster from 1985-1987
About this creation
It has been a while since I posted my teaser photo for this one, so there was even time for Starscream Soundwave to post his own version in between.
I've been working on some details, especially on the back. The first thing I changed was the angle of the back, the 45 deg didn't look right on the hatchback. Then I had to find a way to include the rear window. I have to say I'm still not 100% satisfied with the rear window, but I really like the rest of the model just how it is right now. So it's time for some photos:
I started with a plain white model Left front view: Yeah, that's what I call a big front wing!
Side view: The hatchback looks a lot better this way.
Left rear view: Black tinted tail lights, four air outlets between them and a big rear wing on the top.
"Bird's eye" view of the front - Just because it looks cool
As seen on the main picture, I've built a version with the typical yellow stripes of the main sponsor (a German tobacco brand), too.
Left side view: I'd like to have some of the original 5-spoke Tiny Turbo wheels in white, they would have the perfect look for this one. But I think these wheels look cool, too, just like taken from a WRC Impreza ;-))
And a little look on the rear end. The rear window is a little small, but I don't have a better idea for it right now (I've tried quite a few, though).
So this is my 4-wide LEGO Audi Sport quattro S1, the Group B Rally monster. I hope you like it! :-))
Update October 1, 2012: Another set of wheels for gravel roads. These are especially for the Autumn cars 2012 contest ;-))
Thanks :) and sorry, I did however, give it 5 stars and wouldn't ask for instructions if I didn't like it :P
For what it's worth I think it's very good, I like how you used black tail lights rather than red just like the real car, a neat touch that makes a big difference.
Quoting Cars Lover
Wirklich gut, die Felgen sind der hammer sind die von Lego oder selfmade? Sie haben wirklich den Charakter des Autos getroffen.( Hoffe es ist OK des ich meine Kommemtare in deutsch hinterlasse.)
Die Felgen sind von einem "Cars"-Modell, ich glaube von Lightning McQueen. Deutsch ist natŁrlich auch OK, dann kŲnnen es halt nur viele Leute nicht lesen. Und AFOL hin oder her, ich glaube hier sind alle beim "Du" ;-))
