Retro-futuristic Rally Car . A simple but interesting 8-wide car I sort-of came up with. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Well, on to business, i suppose. .
So here's the first picture. The opening window-roof thing. The car originally had a different top, but as i was browsing parts on LDD one day, i saw the window. So i had to use it. Yes, fellow hoomans, i am compulsive about using fancy LEGO pieces, and making them work.
The window hinge is mounted on the hood, which also opens. This design came first, but i wanted to separate the window and the hood. Anywho.
This is a "cutaway" showing the double-hinge bonnet/roof combo. It also shows my wheel mounting system. I won't call it an axle, for an axle it is not. It was a last-minute idea, because the car originally had fatter tires, but in order to fit the new window, i had to change to the narrower wheels. Bartle-doo.
Engine. Plain and boring at best, but it works, and more importantly, it fits. I don't know how to build engines, so any help would be much appreciated.
Here's an overview of the interior, with the window removed. It's brown, and simple. When i built this i envisioned it as being like a concept car from the 70's. Bartle-doo.
a colored diagram showing you the technique used to build the interior. I like how it turned out, to be honest.
If you've already noticed the slanted bottom of the body, thank you. I couldn't simply use inverted slope bricks whilst keeping the interior normal-ish, so i used the technique you see here. Cut away and colored just for easy viewing.
Ah, the final shot. The shape of the car is maintained from every angle, which surprises me, because this rarely happens in any of my builds. Yeah, i dunno about you guys, but this pic reminds me somewhat of the Lancia Stratos. I'll include the LDD file so you can check it out. Also, sorry for being somewhat laconic, but this is my third attempt at uploading this. The internets, they hates me.
