MOC: Fantasy Island: Island Vehicle

12 posts in this topic

gallery_2351_18_164.gif

Continuing my retro Fantasy Island playset, I had to build a vehicle to transport fantasy-seekers around the island.

Recognize the vehicle? Maybe not, but this is built entirely out of pieces from the vintage fire engine contained in the 10184 Town Plan (with the addition of six red tiles, white rims, and a white 1x2 grill for added accent color).

I was wondering why I didn't see the car in your first FI MOC, I guess you made it now to sort of 'complete' the whole thing. Again, very well done on this car - accurate color scheme and it really has the classic feel into it. :thumbup:

Thanks fellas - I had to modify slightly with limited pieces.

In any case, here's a new image of the vehicle in front of the Island Bungalow:

Very retro, I particularly like that you used vintage bricks to keep the authentic 70's feel.

Do you have any more retro builds in mind... The Beachcombers, Hawaii Five-O, The Love Boat... ?

Although I don't know much about Fantasy Island, but I do like the design of the car very much. Does reminds me of Classic Town. As usual, your photo editing skills have made this entire presentation looks much lively.

Thanks for the feedback guys. :classic:

That's not a bad idea - Retro Television Show Contest

Love Boat was certainly a classic - loved the soundtrack. Unfortunately, doesn't lend itself to too many creations. I'm having Mystery Ship flashbacks.

Does reminds me of Classic Town.

Everything I build seems to capture the Classic Town look. I'm beginning to feel "Classic". :laugh:

Nice little car, Brickster.

But I challenge you! (insert evil laughter)

Can you make the top of the grille flush with the tiles on the hood, so it has a completely flat surface?
