Compact car

38 posts in this topic

I just found these amazing chassis on brickshelf (by Nathanael Kuipers).

Medium sized Technic chassis with similar features as the Supercars, like full suspension, V8 piston engine, working steering wheel and 4-speed gearbox. Rear axle is driven with live axle suspension. HoG is included as well. Bodywork will follow.

Some pics

Cool! :classic: I love Nathanael's building style. Can't wait to see how his turns out. The wheels seem just a bit too narrow for the size. Or maybe it's just me. :hmpf:

Looks cool! Are you sure this is a new project?

Watermark says 2012, folder was created today.

I'm really looking forward to this. It was Nathanael's Supercar that got me back into Technic.

Very nice work - super compact and tidy and good techniques. I love how the frame rails hug that V8 nice and tight. It would be a bear to put headers on it. :classic:

Sigh... just shows you how much you need Technic Frames these days, to do decent, compact studless models

it's a shame Lego didn't create these frames 10 years ago!

wish they were a bit cheaper on bricklink!

Yep, this has got "pony car" written all over it. Judging by Nathanael's previous MOCs, though, it won't be a model of any specific car.

Got some more updates! It looks like the body is coming along.

As Sama noted, there are now 23 pictures on Nathanael Kuipers (industrialdesigner) Brickshelf folder -- "Medium sized Technic car with similar features as bigger Supercars, like full suspension, V8 piston engine, working steering wheel and 4-speed gearbox. Rear axle is driven with live axle suspension. Has HoG steering as well. WiP." I wonder what kind of body he will place on it?

I sure hope he makes some instructions for this model! It looks very many-featured and compact! Great Job Nathaniel Kupiers!

Finaly finished recreating him in LDD from pictures :).

It is 99% accurate since there is one brick missing from ldd.

I dont think i can post lxf file here coz of copyrights.

Well, i will continue to build the whole car.

I will not contact him since i'm lazy and i think he will sell instructions instead of share but thats his business (maybe he will read this ;)).

This MOC is so professional it looks like an official lego set/model.

Thinking a TVR speed 12 style body in a dark colour would look nice.
