Ferrari California (With folding roof)
I have wanted to build one of these for ages, so now I feel as though I have the skill, I think the results are the best they could possibly be! I hope you like it! Please comment and rate :)
About this creation

I am really proud of this model, I have been so eager to get it on here! :) I took the photos a while back, it was sunny then ;) Because the sun was out, I decided to take the photos outside in the garden as this is a summery car!


I am particularly proud of the roof, the California is a hugely beautiful car with the roof up and down, so it was important to me that I got it to look right.


The back was (again) the first part I made, I just wish I could've involved more snot in it, but with all that function, that would've been pretty hard for me...




The front I am not so proud of, though this picture doesn't demonstrate it too well.


I was on shortage of parts for the front (as usual), so it doesn't look too good, buyt I did my best.


Doors open quite smoothly...




And so does the bonnet, I couldn't fit too much detail in here, so I tried my best, also, I was again on a shortage of pieces.


The boot also opens, both ways, when the roof is down and up! I fitted (In my opinion) really cool hinges to the boot, I am really surprised I managed to fit them in!


Everything open... Still beautiful in my opinion!

Here is how the roof functions, quite complicated - but nevertheless worth it :)


Now, the California is even prettier!


For any of you TDU2 players, I definitely recommend buying the California, it sounds really sad, but it is probably one of the most fun cars to drive on there!


The boot open, this time with the roof down. It still has a lot of room in my opinion...


Just look at those cool hinges! :D


The interior isn't too detailed...


Until you get to the rear seats! When buying a California, you have the option to either have storage cases here, or the rear seats - I have always wanted to make a functioning convertible car with rear seats, so why not?


Aerial view...


Everything open, with the roof down...




I know the engine doesn't look too good, but as I said, I was on a shortage of pieces, and the front was really hard to make - so there wasn't much space either.


Wallpaper if any of you like...

That folding roof is so perfect. No one else would dare try something that complex, and that is where you preform so well, incredible and complex features.

ridiculously ambitious build, but it paid off! the front is as close as anyone can get, the headlights are spot on, and the folding roof's a nice touch too! very nice!

Not sure how I missed this the first time around, this is a beautifully built car, and instantly recognizable as a California! And the fact that you got the roof to fold is quite impressive. I've never done a convertible like that, but I can only imagine how tricky it was to get it right. Awesome car!

Quoting Mitchell Smith I know that it is hard to create a car with certain pieces, but I think you've pulled it off! Great job! I think you could have made a few small changes, but apart from that, 5/5!
Thanks! I agree a few things could've been changed, but hey :) Thanks again!

Quoting Ape Fight Nice job, that roof is very clever. I think the bodywork could be a little smoother in places, but it stills looks good as it is. 4/5 : )

Quoting TheLegoNoitAll . Awesome! don't know if you know, but right now I'm working on an Italian Convertible too :D though it's this car's bitter enemy >:D Love the roof, i was going to do something more accurate with the way the roof opens, sort of like yours, but the intake design got in the way, all well... congrats on your blogging!
Thanks! I'm not sure what that could be... It could go either way, the Maserati gran cabrio, or the gallardo spyder... What is it?!

Quoting Alexander Paschoaletto Love this. the rear is fantastic, the folding roof is perfect, nice technic you've made. I think that I would just remove those triangular bricks above the grid because the original car doesn't has this. other than that, fantastic creation!
Thanks! And it's broken up now though...
