White Tiger Trike with turbocharged V4 on snow and ice . On a cold winter morning I looked outside and everything outside turned white, white as in snow. Where snow is, I am. Where I am, Lego is. First I thought about creating another Lego car, but on second hand I thought it was impossible to create it in a two day timeframe. Therefore I thought about what to build and how to build as an alternative model, that still highly contains a marriage of both appearance and functionality! I was thinking of creating another Lego mod, but then I thought it was impossible to create a large scale model in such little time. While I was on school I kept thinking and thinking...thinking again of what to build and then how to build something that's doesn't measure only a few inches of low key performance scale model. At least it had to be a model with a marriage of both “appearance” and “functionality”! The time I spent building this trike scale model kept me two days busy without sleep. To know why, read below! . It was Friday noon and I looked outside. I was a little nervous about the shrinking layer of snow. There was a chance that the rain would flush it away right in front of me, but luckily that didn't happen. On that very moment I was in war with the elements of weather. front view Saturday I felt a little more nervous about the melting snow. I had to go on an appoinment and directly after that I was invited by friends to go to a movie. When I came home it turned very late and I needed some sleep. In my frustration I dreamt about driving around on a trike on snow and crawling on buildings etc. In my dream I didn't know how I got the trike, but it felt really badass. It felt like I was driving a Harley Davidson Fatboy or Triumph Rocket 3 Roadster on snow and walls of buildings. Only this was a three wheeled version. top view Sunday morning I woke up and After a large non-veg breakfeast I unpacked my Lego storage boxes. First I closed my eyes and visualised the Trike model in my mind. Soon I built the framework and it got the outlines of a house cat. After adding more components it became heavier and larger and it resembled a big cat like a lion or tiger. In all the hurry I forgot to think about a decent exhaust. At the end of my personal deadline I got myself inspired by existing cars and bikes. I created a last minute four barreled exhaust, almost equal to the Pagani Zonda Hypercar. back view To make the trike actually look like a big cat, I strategically added some hard edged components on the frame, like the plates with air vents and teeth-like components, also used as head and tail lights. They also function as “tiger nails”, like it almost jump attacks someone in front of it. side view To keep the trike in balance, I added differentials. The differentials lead to a universal axle that is driven by the V4 engine. First I tried to mount a V6 and even a V8 engine, but they were too large to fit in the engine compartment. bottom view All good things come to an end. After two weeks I dismantled this trike. Based on curiosity, I counted the parts for two hours. 1059 Single components were used for the Tiger Trike.
