Johnny No Mates' Pirate-Mobile . My entry for the 'sigfiggy kart' group; Johnny No-Mates and Bobo the Parrot in his Pirate-Mobile :) . Hi,
I know, this is completely silly.
It's just made for fun :)
I was invited to join the 'sigfiggy kart' group where the idea was to make mario-kart style vehicles for Lego-Dudes (I insist, I call them 'Lego-Dudes', not 'sig-figgies'...I mean, where does the 'sig' bit come from anyway?)
So as I was invited into the group, I thought it'd be nice to make a contribution; so here it is : Johnny No-Mates' (remember him ? He's in my MOC's...) pirate-mobile.
I don't suppose there's much to say, as in mario kart (as tha's the inspiration), I made my racer have a bit over-the-top design influenced completely by the theme; in this case, a small pirate s^hip on wheels; the engine bnoosters are barrels, a cannon opn the front, complete with monkey on the mast and Johnny's annoying parrot (OK I'll call him Bobo... spur of the moment idea lol) on his shoulder.
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 !
