MOC: Mildly Yellow, alternate of 5767

Hi all,

So, I didn't like the 'F1' alternate of the 5767 (5767, not 5765!!!) cool cruiser set - anyone who owns this set would be familiar with it, I'm not sure what the designers were aiming for.

Anyway, to fill you in, I've been building F1 cars for a while, though I took a few year break and in the meantime LEGO came out with long, curvy parts that made me tingle in strange places... And as it happens, this set had many, many such parts.

Here's the original culprit. I like the yellow, I like the parts, just not a fan of the actual set design... that's ok, that's what creativity is for!

Meet my F1, a slim-nosed version - though I realised after I took the pics that I forgot the wing mirrors, oops.

Have to admit, this is as much about testing my photography as showing off the model - but this front view shows the front wing attachment.

Just a casual bit of car porn

I didn't like the steering wheel that came with the set so I made a much smaller, more F1 style one out of 1x2 plate with clips and a technic t-piece.

Here's that mount point for the wing, a 1x1 plate with vertical clip... another one would have been good but the set only comes with 5...

What's it called? Mildly Yellow, of course!

*Any resemblance to Jordan F1 colour scheme entirely coincidental, honest.

This is very nice! I try to stay away from alternates, but you pulled it off well!
