This took around a month to do and posed many small problems along the way. Everything is as accurate as I could get it, inside and out, as I used a whole lot of reference pics and vids in the process. There are a bunch of weird building techniques including offsets, SNOT, and even some strategic sticker placements. It was a lot of fun and I hope you enjoy it:

I do need to give a shout out to Legohaulic, who inspired me to build this (I never thought a decent minifig(ish) scale delorean was possible until I saw his); I pulled many ideas from his, and tried to improve on it where I could.

Any and all comments are appreciated.

Now why don't you make like a tree, and get outta here  :tongue: .

Awesome MOC, Delorean's are the best, especially the back to the future one.

Well of course Doc Brown built a time machine out of a Delorean! They're the perfect cars! My rambling aside, I simply LOVE this. I've seen a lot of BTTF Delorean renditions, and this is the best. You've added all the details, and your SNOT techniques are amazing! Also in terms of minifigs, both Doc and Marty look as close to the movie as purist gets, and you've even got Einstein (aka, the first time traveller) there too!

Amazing work!

Thanks for the kind words, everyone!

It was quite the challenge to capture some of the angles, but I am happy with everything (which says a lot, as I am a major perfectionist). Everything (inside and out) is as accurate as I could make it; the interior even has all the proper gauges and switches in all the right spots.

Thanks for the bump, I would've missed seeing this wonderful BTTF Time Machine if not for that. As always, your knack for accurate greebling details is very evident on this MOC. I also love your alternative approach on the windscreen/roof design. Excellent work once again! :thumbup:

Excellent car :thumbup:  You've used some nice and original techniques there, like on the roof and the back structure.
I also like the fact that the doors can be opened. Good job.
