  1. Thank you Here's another feature to add interest, I created suspension for it. This should easily fit into most 8-wide cars: Corvette Suspension by Henchmen4Hire, on Flickr Corvette Front Axle by Henchmen4Hire, on Flickr
  2. Rotated the roof and removed the ugly hinges in front so it's sleeker and looks less like a Creator car. Also reworked the trunk lid so it's studless. Plus a preview of another... I'll crawl back under my rock now...
  3. It's cute, in a blocky 80's car sort of way lol I like the roof and door "handles", I've been experimenting lately with techniques for them
  4. Welp, I don't have anyone else to share my Lego interest with so I came crawling back to you like the jellyfish I've become lol. And since I can't seem to win over anyone with my 70's muscle cars, let's give this new hotness a try. Corvette Grand Sport 2017 by Henchmen4Hire, on Flickr While it was tempting to just widen the Speed Champions Corvette since it's almost the same car body, the car still didn't look right. Plus, I also wanted to pack as much detail into it as possible. There are more pictures and build commentary for each of the individual pictures, just click through and enjoy.

  5. Embarrassed to say I didn't know anything about the revival of this library until now >_> Great job of course, only thing I would change is that round dark bluish grey building structure. It's too big, maybe make it with [1x1 round plates] stuck to a [1x1 plate clip light, thin ring].
  6. I wish the pics were larger so I could see detail more clearly to make fun of it with more authority, but thanks for the write-up lol.
  7. Having lived in Mexico on and off, any time there was a random single Black guy in the village he would definitely be pointed out as "the Black dude", so whatever potential "problem" you're seeing doesn't exist in my eyes. (And since when is calling someone "a local" a problem anyway?) Example: "Ve con El Negro y traeme unas cebollas." (Go to the Black guy's shop and bring me some onions.) Or they call him "El Negrito", "El Moreno", etc. The locals just like to call each other by description, not by name. They refer to the fat guy as THE fat guy, they call the oldest lady in the village THE old lady, and they call the only Chinese dude THE Chinese dude. There's no malice behind it. Even the stores have pet names. If there's only one dude in the village that sells fruit, then he's called "El Frutero", meaning "The Fruit Guy." However, if this were an MOC of a place where dark skinned people are notiriously mercilessly taunted, like, oh, I don't know, Spain, then now we have an interesting conversation lol
  8. Yep, could tweak it to make similar-body cars like the Challenger or a Roadrunner. The only thing that I can't figure out is how to "legally" add the 2 vertical chrome bumper sections to the rear. However, there's a gap next to the exhaust where I can just stuff a LBG tile and it would stay there from friction. :) Going with a coupe body would let you get a sleeker finish since then you can substitute the hinges for a 1x3 slope. I want the next car I make to be a flashier color like orange or lime. Started working on a newer Grand Sport Corvette and maybe I'll go with orange or yellow.
  9. I was just thinking, you know what, this model isn't expensive enough yet, I should add more parts lol I built some snazzy seats for the Barracuda so I had to make some for the Bird too. The back and headrest are adjustable, I know they're not supposed to be, but screw it mine are! Super Seats by Henchmen4Hire, on Flickr
  10. rofl, sounds like a page out of an Atomic Robo comic
  11. While updating my old cars, I decided early that I wanted to keep many parts I had already used on the 1.0 versions. Well, that didn't last long, my hands immediately grabbed totally new parts right from the start, much to my wallet's chagrin. lol It was worth it though, this 2.0 version is better in almost every way. Plymouth Barracuda by Henchmen4Hire, on Flickr Here's a look at the beast punching through the hood. The engine is so powerful it needs to use a chain belt or else risk exploding like a supernova lol. I think the whole assembly looks like some kind of turbocharger with an intercooler maybe.. The round silver tile is a radiator cap. Barracuda Engine Detail by Henchmen4Hire, on Flickr NOTES •I would use black electrical tape to clean up the jagged edges of the black billboard design, as well as to add the HEMI logo in front of the door handle. •Removing most of the black roof bricks lets us simulate it folded down. •Steering column is similar to my Superbird so it's adjustable. •For both of these features we need to use three black [1x1 plate with handle]. Unfortunately the Studio program doesn't have the part yet. •The tail lights are a basic build but are very accurate. Red is the body, LBG is silver trim, the red light is wider than the white light. •The exhaust is attached via 180 SNOT. •The protruding lights clip onto the 1x8 tile. •I'd like to use an old western pistol as a pistol grip floor shifter. •Like the Superbird, bars are used to attach the wheels to the axle plates. •I like the seats most of all, they resemble magnets so I'm calling this car color "Red Magnetic". If Metallica can make up weird names then so can I! •Yes, minifigs fit inside. Plymouth Barracuda Details by Henchmen4Hire, on Flickr Thanks to everyone who stops by to check out my stuff. This will probably be the last car I post, there just doesn't seem to be any interest in stuff like this.
  12. Think it would be funny to flip the yellow slope on the face so it's horizontal, then it would look a lot like a Birdbot Although right now it already looks like Parakeet-bot lol
  13. While I don't like most old LEGO sets, I wouldn't mind having this one with the mods you made. I like the shape and features, I just think it needs some more "modernizing" to make it even more badass.
  14. The only thing creepier than the dead horses on the merry-go-round are all the grey minifig heads on the fence, I can imagine they're all making hideous faces lol
  15. I didn't want to start a new topic so I'll just post here. It's been 4 years since I got these stickers from Saber Scorpion and amazingly they all look as good as day I stuck them on. However, I have something to report... Wanted to say, I should have listened! I checked my figures recently and they all looked great except for the FemShep, and yeah she uses primarily DarkBley stickers. They faded away and are starting to get that green tinge. I would definitely give them a quick coat of sealer and see if that would prevent this. However, considering I paid like $1 and it lasted 3 to 4 years, of course I'm not upset haha. I would still recommend SS's stickers to everyone. I'll get around to posting a pic of the Cortana, looks like I totally forgot about it
