McLaren MP4/6
I'm back with my latest car creation: Ayrton Senna's 1991 championship-winning Formula One car.
About this creation
I first got the idea to build a Formula One car of the pre-1994 era after coming up with the front steering/suspension solution that you see here. I built it using levers, 4mm pneumatic hoses, and minifig hands.

I chose to build the 1991 McLaren MP4/6, because it was the car in which Senna won his last world driver's championship and also the first time he won the Brazilian Grand Prix, his home race.

This build came together relatively quickly - about 3 weeks in I had finished the entire car except for replacing the placeholder pieces with the correctly colored ones. Overall it was a fairly straight-forward car, although the side pods were quite tricky, due to the three stud sideways high arrangement. Because of this, the top parts of the side pods (the plates) as well as the airbox had to be offset by 1/2 plate to avoid gaps.

Nice build, very accurate! This should have way more likes than it does. This car brought Ayrton his last driver's championship. Anyway, great job with this car!

Quoting LukeClarenceVan The Revanchist Slick build, and great presentation to boot. You've gotten the lighting to a point where I had a double take thinking that this was a digital render. Are you using a light box?
No, it's a super simple setup. I have a bendable white board (usually) and tripod for camera. The lighting is just the regular ceiling lights. It's directly overhead, so I don't bother diffusing it.

You've done justice to this most beautiful of F1 cars; all you need now is a fig with a yellow helmet! Well done.

Yes, that was one sad race weekend - especially with Ratzenberger's fatal crash and Barrichello's near-fatal crash.

That's really a very good replica of the original. Looks great in shape and detail. Senna was a really good driver and it was much fun watching him racing. Very sad that he had this horrible crash in 1994. The worst F1 weekend i ever saw...

Those suspensions are awesome. Love the color blocking, I can picture Marlboro all over it. The shaping is spot on and I got a kick out of the naca ducts on the sidepods, clever. Thank you for celebrating Senna, truly one of the best. Awesome!

Quoting John Pike Awesome. How well do the tubes for the for the front suspension hold up? I really like that technique.
It holds up fairly well. There are two flexible tubes (one on either side) that are only connected the chassis and not the wheel, so it can be easily moved; though it's not like it will fall off easily. The wheels are still attached to an axle that runs all the way through to the other side, so it's not like the suspension/steering detail part is doing any of the actual structural strength. i.e. if you take off the flexible tubes the wheels will still stay fixed and roll. -LB Jr.

Wow, this F1 is really awesome. The colour arangement is very accurate. I mostly like the air vents on the sides. Nice solution to create this shape there.
