Cars for my MegaMOC 2012

Again: Amazing stuff. And the colour combinations are great - part of what makes your cars so nice is that you build them in so many different colours. It really adds some spice to a scene (not that your dioramas need added spice, of course...)!

1959 Station wagon;

While I find most of the cars from that epoque stunningly beautiful, many different trends, styles and tastes emerged at the same time, and was -unfortunatly- sometimes mixed and blended by the desginers.

So let this car be a monument to the humongous desing-failures that was also done during these years; Wooden-style panels, two-tone body paint, white-wall tires, painted matching hubcaps, panoramic windscreen, partly covered rear wheels, huge metal bumpers, grotesque Texas-style longhorn ornament.

You name it; This car´s got it! Tasteless galore!

This is truly the car "Build for Homer".

-Or maybe what the "Wagon Queen Family Truckster" would have looked like 25 years earlier...

Thanks ´Tiger! -The van certainly will get a few stickers, but I need to accumulate more texts and signs, before I feed a whole sheet through the printer...

Hi all,

Here´s a couple of cars more for the project;

First off, a study in Bright Cyan; The HotRod from MegaMOC 2011 adapted to my small collection of pieces in this colour;

Car #23 (a pure fantasy vehicle);

dsc05693.jpg

dsc05695.jpg

Car #24 is another study en "Rare Colours", namely a Bright Pink convertible;

dsc05688.jpg

dsc05690.jpg

dsc05689.jpg

dsc05691.jpg

As these are some of the last cars for the proejct (only a couple of trucks reamins to be made), I´ve wanted to include some kind of constructive details;

dsc05698.jpg

The lousy clucthing-power of the pink pieces made it necessary to install the blue re-inforcement plate. The pink pieces (all original Lego) can hardly hold themselves together. TLC; What crap is this¿?

The next couple of photos shows the always-difficult front of the car; All my cars are done differently. This model in particular features a huge floating (or prisoner) part incoporated;

dsc05699.jpg

-The floating part is the lower-right one...

Lastly a couple of bye-bye pics;

Ciao!

Yeah, I was going to mention the windscreen! I didn't notice it when you first posted the picture on Flickr. That's a very neat solution.

Thanks L@go and lightningtiger! -Unfortunatly I can´t take credit for that technique. I saw it somewhere else, but can´t remember where (sorry).

L@go; Thanks for your always enthusiastic comments. My postings on Flickr are never exhaustive (because of the 200 pics limit), so you never really get to se all the details there... :classic:

Great cars, as always. Thanks for sharing your building technique. I still have a lot to learn.

I love the fact that these cars sometimes look so deceptively simple and small! default_laugh_new.gif

I also love spending a sunday afternoon, puzzling one together.

You are truly becoming a master at this, especially the pink convertible looks sweeheet!

Are you using the milky white tires for the whitewalls?
