1970 Plymouth HEMI Roadrunner Superbird
Superbird! :D (8-wide)
About this creation


Needs a few little tweaks probably, nothing a little colored electrical tape won't fix ;)

-Doors and trunk can open
-Reclining seats
-Adjustable steering wheel
-+10 to your cool factor
-Minifig scale (8 wide)
-Will attach those floating bits somehow







So I said to myself, "Self, how can you make this Superbird even more superfly? Give it interchangeable engines of course!" And so I did.

I rearranged the hood and pieces behind the nose to create a 3x4 space almost 2 bricks deep to stuff an engine into.



It's enough space to fit a modest engine... or a big honking blown one. Guess which one I chose!





The cross axle plugs into the cross brick in the car so there aren't any loose pieces. Here's the engine by itself:



The cone is just there to make it look pretty, it should be removed to plug into the car of course.

Here's another engine, it's ambiguous enough to be either the 440 or 426 and fits neatly under the hood.



========================

Couldn't get all the pieces in that light blue (azure?) color so I had to stick with normal blue for the brick built version.

-Raised the roof by a plate by using 2x4 wedge plates, looks much better now. Height is one of those things I can't judge too well in LDD
-Obviously lots of temp pieces around, pretty happy that I had about 2/3 of the total pieces needed to build this bird
-Refined the insides further, managed to lower the piece count by 6 (about 300 total, less without the blown engine)





It's okay if no one else loves 8-wide, 'cuz I do. :]

Quoting TheLegoNoitAll . Pretty good, i really like the front, my one's front needs a little work, oh and those things on the side go out not in ;) since the engine is i the front those aren't intakes (like you probably thought) it is very recognizable :)
I thought those were flush with the car's body so I sank them in instead of popping them out, thanks for the heads up! I found a better reference picture haha. I think I need to move the rear wheels forward by one stud too... Edit: Made the changes :)
