Hi,
I want to show you my new Lego car. Earlier I was a bit fundamentalist about 4wide cars, but now I think I'm getting used to see them bigger so...

I saw this on The Brothers Brick earlier, and I must say that this is gorgeous! I love how it starts as one size at the front, and gets wider at the back. I also really like the seats. Well done.

Neat moc. You have included lots of detail on the sides of it which makes it look a bit more amazing. :thumbup: Love the interior. :wub:
Keep it up!

Thank You :thumbup:
When I look at it, I still don't like the wheels, the front wheels are to wide and the rear wheels are to big...
I think this is the major problem for people who want to build more realistic cars in Lego. For now that's a problem I cant solve, I don't know (or have) better wheels for a car of this size.

I just saw it on BS, excellent work Rupi! :thumbup:
The new grill piece on the bottom front looks very cool and the back looks very sleek, me likes.
The only thing i'm missing here are 2 big chrome exhausts to make this baby roar!
Why do you need TLC to make sets for you, all you really need is parts...be creative!

The build a frigate tutorail!

A marvelous work! Your lovely roadster, although quite different, reminds me a lot of a 'beefed up'
version of the famous Lotus Seven S II from The Prisoner...  :wub:

Oh, wow! This is really well done! I have one complaint, though: The windshield. It looks awesome here, but in my opinion it's a little too wide..... I wish they'd make that piece 5-wide!  :cry_happy:  Though overall this is sweetness. Pure sweetness.

Congratulations on an awesome car moc!!  :laugh:

Thank's for your comments :sweet:
About the building instructions, is kind of tricky for me because I really don't like (don't know how) to use LDD or such software.

I agree the grill piece fits in great :thumbup:
Exhausts would make it more awesome too :classic:

I likee the white stripe down the middle too, Looks good and the interior just everything is like perfect. :sweet:

Also if you can't do instructions [You don't have to do LDD just sections with pics of how you did it] you could just give us the piece list. :classic:

Rupi:  I love your building style, esp. your vehicles.  This little roadster is fantastic.  I esp. like the colors and the white stripe running fown the middle.  I blogged this yesterday after seeing it on Brickshelf.  Great job! :thumbup:

Very nice. I love the side detail, as well as the way the stripe isn't quite down the middle. Cars are definately getting bigger; but they're getting a lot more varied too which is nice. I found a 4-wide car yesterday that I made years ago as an attempt to give a car a more unique look as I was fed up with fleets of rectangular bonnets and boots (or hoods and trunks if you're inclined that way.) I'll have to upload some pics to my bricklink sometime.
