Hello everybody!

I guess everyone has an idea what to find in this topic when having read the title of this thread. :wink:

So, I'll cut the story short. It's the famous Ghostbusters Ecto-1 emergency vehicle. It's in the scale of LEGO's Tiny Turbo line of the Racers theme. It was not that easy in the small scale, but I hope it turned out alright. :classic: It features essential details like the little fins at the rear of the car and all the greebly equipment on the roof. Particularly tricky were the partially concealed rear wheels (see reference image), which resulted in a small studs-down section in the middle of the car. :classic:

I think it truly captures the essence of the iconic Ghostbusters car!  Well done!

I agrees. You are truly the expert in this kind of built and the overall creation is very accurate.  :thumbup:

You gotta LDD this if you get the time, because I'd love to make my own. That thing is almost perfect at that scale.

EDIT: I got impatient and tried it myself in LDD. No idea how accurate it is in terms of how you actually built it, though. That upsidesey downsey rear fender took more brain power than I'm used to [I'm strictly up-and-down, man]. I was going to post a picture of it, but this thing isn't letting me.

Thanks Chris!  This is an awesomely detailed and complicated MOC for a 4-wide car, and it captures the look of the movie car perfectly! :wub:
