An alternate model for set #31002 bearing the same racing livery as popcorn.
About this creation
Anyone who has seen some of the newer LEGO Creator sets for 2013 will probably be familiar with "31002 Super Racer". This small, well-priced set includes instructions for a Formula One inspired vehicle, as well as two alternate models. After seeing this on the shelf a couple times, I started to wonder if you could build a better looking F1-style car using pieces from the set.
Eventually I decided to purchase the set and take it home. Initially I built the main model using the instructions. It's a great, sturdy car. However I don't like how the steering wheel fills the cockpit, nor do I understand that gigantic rear wing. So I took the model apart and started on my own. After about thirty minutes I had this:
^ The proportions are a little goofy, but I think it looks kind of neat.
^ This model is completely 100% for sure street legal. It has turn signals =]
^ The wheels are ridiculous for this scale, but I used almost every piece in the set, so I doubt the monocoque could be made any larger.
^ Despite the big wheels, the shape of this car has actually grown on me.
^ Anyway, I'd be curious to see if someone else could improve on this kind of design, or maybe even make something entirely new and better. If you've created an alternate model for this set, feel free to post a link below =] Comments are very much appreciated, and thanks for viewing!
