About this creation
Built for last months LUGnuts challenge, Summer of '69! and a little MOC off between me and lego911 (don't think he has a MOCpages account, at least that he still uses)
Don't know why the middle of the taillights rendered orange, they were a DARKER shade of red on LDD...
(removed trans parts from here on to speed up rendering times)
Engine, which I rushed because this was already late for the LUGnuts challenge... so it won't be as good as mine are usually.
(these will be replaced with rendered images later)
The Chevrolet logo on the main photo was also built from LEGO, an idea borrowed from Ryan Link, see more car logos here
Quoting Achintya Prasad
Nice! Will we be seeing a "real" creation soon? (LDD is fine, but there a sort of, zing, perhaps, with a "real" build.....)
Thanks. I have two builds in the works, one was mostly finished in late June i think, but I need a bricklink order to get a few parts, and also to fix some (and by some I mean a lot) of wrong colors, and I have just started another one yesterday. I need about 10 more US dollars before i can finish the first... so it should be done hopefully soon...
Thanks guys! :D
@Matt: I have done it on my Diablo, I may do it more often, i tried on this one, but the rear suspension got in the way. :/
@Starscream: I can confirm you that it is very simple. the block itself is little more than plates forming a 3x4, then with cheese slopes at the sides, a 1x4 brick in the middle, and circle parts at the top...
I love it! An instantly recognizable classic! You've done a particularly good job on the front and rear.
As I looked at the picture of the bottom, though, a thought occurred to me -- although it is rarely done in car MOCs, have you ever given any thought to modeling the exhaust headers, driveshaft, transmission, and other major parts that are visible from below? That would really be something special.
