Plymouth Roadrunner Hemi 1971 ''Pro Touring'' . . This is ''The making off''. I will post the finished car in a new topic. This 1971 Plymouth Roadrunner Hemi is slightly based on the one from ''Pure Vision''. I am a real Mopar en Chevy fan, so this car is a must. This is one of the last real American muscle cars! I built this car as I went. No instuctions what so ever. I took measurements from pictures. From there I calculated the demensions to the right scale. I only used LEGO parts. I only modified 3 pieces myself: 3 axles of 6: One of them needed to bee 5 and the other two needed to bee about 5.5 long, so I cut some off. All the lego is about 15 years old. Suspension, chassis and wheels come from the 8880 supercar, but heavily modified. I only used some off the parts. I used different springs for example. I had te move the suspension arms 1/2 block (front and rear) to get the right gap in the wheel arches. This may seme like an easy job but I had to move differential and drivetrain also. All the axles and bushings had to be changed.I also needed to stiffen up everything. I had to make room for the engine so the original way was no option anymore (see pics below). Overall the chassy is now a full 14 blocks longer then the one from the 8880 supercar. By that you can see that the scale off the 8880 supercar is a bit off. (I beleve it seposed to be about 1/10 scale) Features: - About 1/8 scale. - Working gearbox (4-speed). - Working independant suspension front and rear. - Adjustable ridehight. - 'Working' Hemi V8 with Cross-ram inlet system. - Opening doors, hood and trunk. - Roll cage. - Sport/race interior. (bucket seats and so on.) - Realistic hood hinges. Demensions: Length: 86,5 bricks. (69 cm/27,17 inches). With: 30 bricks. (24 cm/9.45 inches). Time to construct: 75-80 hours. Finished: - The Chassis. (exept stearing linkige) - Body. - Dashboard and seats (front). - Engine bay. - Front end. - Everything else now. I wanted to make a good body first before doing anything else. If you built everything else then it's hard to change something later. I took some of the car appart (it was only a shell). Also I changed the lines on the back slightly: I raised the rear end of the trunk 1/3 and lowered the frond en of the trunk 1/3. The angle of the trunk looks better now. It is not so much like a '70 Chevelle anymore. (The main foto is the original shell) You can see a litle of the (working) 4-speed manual transmision. Some foto's of the Hemi engine I built today! I Took of the top of the body and started on the frond end of the car. I made it a bit stiffer and started the work on the engine bay. The dashboard: The under-side of the front-end is finished. (Headlights came in today, so that is up next!) The lifelike hood-hinges: The sportseats are finished! The interior: Look at the pedals! Pictures of the rollcage I designed and added today: Ass you can see here the rool cage also supports the roof: This is the front with the custom spoiler: Nice looking engine bay: Hemi Power!
