About this creation

UPDATE : I decided to rebuild some of my offical technic sets - of which the pneumatic truck 8868. Unfortunately, half of the parts were used in my Mustang, so sadly, I had to break it.... I'm keeping this page up "in loving memory" :)
It might not have been very good lookin on the outside, but I really liked how I made the chassis and mechanicals on this - being able to have the V8 running at the same time as the wheels; and a steering system with the wheel to one side of the car; quite a lot of cogs and brticks to fit in but I managed to get all that on the chassis in one place being no more than 3 inches tall - seeing how low the bonnet was, that was quite a challenge to design (the steering mechanism had to go underneath the car, where the engine sat as low as possible on the chassis)... I've added these two photos of the car having it's guts spilled out... Again, it was nothing to special to look at, but I actually felt really bad breaking this... Just like the Lotus was broken to make the Bugatti, I'm going to have to make another , much better car to replace this one :)



My third big lego car, built in april 2008 and taking about a week to make (not full time), was made quite arbitrarily when I noticed I had four biggish wheels of the same type and color left; so I started seeing what other bits I had lying around that would be useful. I used most of the good bits on my supercar and lotus 7 so it's not as good looking; but I did my best with what I had left.
The idea, before even styarting to build, was to make an old american type muscle car; and halfway through building, like with my Lotus 7, I noticed that it looked a bit like a mustang; and carried on, building it that way. the end result, in my opinion, despite a few differences, looks nearest to the 69' mustang mach I.the chassis is actually very thin, and made out of a few long grey 'lengths' attached to each other.
In order to respect the scale with the wheels, I had to put the motor as low as I could above the front wheel axles, which meant that I had to re-dop the steering mechanism; and finished by putting it underneath the main chassis and wheel axle, so the whole steering bit is "upside down" in a way.
Using a completely different structure again to my previous cars; this one is quite the opposite in terms of build design - despite the weight, it's mostly hollow; and has a very tough structure : I fitted black lengths coming out sideways from the chassis in various places; that 'lock' onto side manels I built from connecting technic bits to each other; and then just built in the sides with bricks and the top/front/back with panels of normal lego; seeing the size limitations, the cockpit is quite simple but I did my best with what I had to make do with. I messed around with cogs on the steering mechanism so the steering wheel could be to one side of the car.
There's a 9V motor situated right at the back of the car (cuz that's the only place that had enough space) that, by long axles and cogs, is linked up to the V8 motor under the front. The motor in turn is linked up to a few cogs that make a couple of fans turn at the same time as the engine turns ; and the bonnet is worked by my last pneumatic pump.
the whole thing is probably the sturdiet lego car I've made so far; despite it being mainly hollow and relatively few parts linking it all together; it won't budge and even though I'm not so sure I'd want to try; I bet I could chuck it out the window and the only things that would come off would be the side mirrors...

















P.S. If you are looking to buy lego for your creations, I would like to recommend the following Bricklink lego shop ; "About Town, Castle & Train" ( http://www.bricklink.com/store.asp?p=stacey_love )
I personally know the shopholders, and they are very nice, devoted people. They are currently sponsoring 100% of my 1/3 Lamborghini project, providing all of the parts; and have made various other donations to other models I have made.
The store has a wide selection of parts (over 600,000!), at good prices, and offer an exceptional, fast service (no tax or dodgy exchange rates, next day postage, etc). you won't be disappointed !

Ah ben j'avoue que j'aime bien les voitures 100 % en Technic (meme si je suis incapable d'en faire une lol) - On reconnait trés bien la Mustang et j'aime les solutions que tu as adopté pour faire l'arriere, trés joli !
