This is a contest entry for Raphael G's Mini Garage Speedboat contest. Though technically this isn't mini garage scale, it's still got the speedboat, trailer, and a hefty sports truck! I went the extra mile because the speedboat was the only object specified in the contest.
About this creation
front view with all items set up.
Rear view as a whole.
Front view of the truck by itself. This is the first time I've used a red/dark red color combination.
Rear view of sports truck including a trailer hitch.
The trailer by itself.
Front view of the racing boat. My favorite part is the orange spoiler-like thing in front of the large motor.
Back view of the boat. Notice how some pieces are normal, and others upside-down. That's explained in the next picture.
The boat uses a similar construction to a smaller boat I built in the past using technic pins to invert pieces and get the nice hull shape.
p.s. I use those pins a lot to flip stuff upside down, too. Too bad they don't make them with the 'pin' side short enough to stick into a plate as well, to stick two plates together. Oh well, nice job.
Hey, sorry I haven't commented on your stuff in awhile. I think this is as cool as 4-wide can be. The truck is almost an SUV; I would have kept it more 'pickupy' looking. and the boat trailer is like awesome, not to mention the boat. Great job man, nice work. -matthew-
I love those tiny thingys you always build! this one is from your best at this scale... I specially like the color combo at the truck, and of course the color of the boat! I wish I have a lot of orange pieces enough to build a large scale car :( any way I like also the technique you used at the boat... all in all one of my favorite MOCs at this scale, keep it up my good man >>> peace.. Fofo ;)
