So, after over a year in a Dark Age, I'm finally back. :laugh:  Not so many days ago I was randomly looking at the boxed of LEGO I hadn't touched for so long, then looked out the window at our old Volvo V70.
I suddenly felt the urge to build a replica of it in LEGO, but as I had tried that before my Dark Ages and failed, I was thoughtful if I would succeed. I then realized that I had always used the same base for all my car MOCs, and thought to myself, 'Think outside the box.'

So I finally sat down and started to build.
After three hours (yes this is longer than it usually takes me to build a car), it was complete. And I was actually satisfied with it. My LEGO spark had returned to me, not a second too late.


Okay, I think that's enough of my life story. After all, you came here for some pictures, right? :tongue:

Uhh, the back of a Volvo is alway very difficult to build...
... but you did a amazing way!
In my opinion a Volvo with it's typically corrugation would look better with a 4wide upper part. You could use a windscreen from TLG, which makes it much easier, or not?

Thanks. :)

Well, I tried that, but it didn't really work out with the rear part, and made the car look too small overall.
