I've been playing around with Lego Digital Designer this weekend. However, I like to prototype my creations in real bricks too. Please note: All the creations below have been uploaded to my Lego Factory Gallery and will appear there as soon as they've been moderated. You can download the .lxf files and even order a few copies there if you want.
First up, a while back I saw that Calvin had come up with a really simple cheap car design that could be ordered from Lego Factory. It was a great idea and I've tweaked it a little and come up with my own version. It's very similar so I guess you could claim that the General Block Corporation from my town has indulged in a little industial espionage and "borrowed" the design from Legoda Motors in Legoland! :'-(
This is a bog standard car that's cheap enough for your regular wage slaves. It has room for one suitcase in the back, and side doors are not even available as an extra-cost option! :-D
The car is available in a large range of colours and styles and is designed so that you can populate your town with large variety of vehicles for very little money.
The relative prices are something like this:
Light Grey: £3.39
Vintage Black Model: £3.62
Rare Yellow Model: £3.74
Modern Dark Grey: £3.87
A deluxe version of the car is available. This has been designed so that you can replace the side panels with doors if you have them.
Extra features include: front fender, towing hook, opening hood with powerful 2-cylinder engine :-D , leather seat and room for two suitcases.
Here you can see the design similarity of recent products from the General Block Corporation:
Of course a towing hook needs something to tow, so I have designed this nifty caravan which is available seperately or together with the deluxe car.
Inside is a bed, wash basin, stove and storage space. You will have to add the tap, pot and cups from your own bricks.
The two tan cylinders can be placed under the tow bar to prop up the caravan when it's parked. The perfect home away from home!
Except when the Daleks invade! Eeeek! :-D
My Dalek design is inspired by CaseWindu's excellent design. You will have to add the claw and lightsabre hilt yourself.
