Hi all,

Casrs 9 and 10 are finished. Say hello to the yellow twins Patty and Selma;

The cars are not simple constructions;
Posted Image
For example each car has around 16 headlight-bricks and 14 jumper-plates, in order to get a high amount of details in these 6-wide vehicles.

A comparison (for scale) with the original lime cruiser;
Posted Image
The cabs are 4 studs shorter and rides half a plate higher.

What makes you say that? Your topic has, as of now, 2226 views since you made the first post in March :)

I love the new fire truck - it's so full of detail. Very nice to see a car from you that can actually hold a minifig, too. The scale is just about perfect. Now, when will you be revealing some more details about this MegaMOC of yours...?

Wow, great firetruck. I always envy builders that can create vehicles in minifig scale that are just spot on. I've tried it several times but was never satisfied with wath came out of my hands. All of your cars are so well build. A pleasure to look at.

Great work, Hoexbroe.

Thanks guys! Yeah... I have been moving quite fast... But I think the production will slow down a little now; I am beginning to miss necessary key-parts. So until next BrickLink order... Damn!  :laugh:

Love the Vette, but I think that red cheese slope at the back needs to be one stud forward.

Wow! This is probably the best collection of minifig scale cars on the web!
One question though:
I've built a 5-wide similar to your Corvette, but I was wondering how you make the interior? I can't find space for an interior without compromising the structural integrity. Any tips? :sweet:

Thanks. The interior is only 3 studs wide, so the car can hold a single fig. I think it looks better with no fig inside, so I will display it with the driver standing beside the car...
Structural integrety is not compromised, but then again the interior is not very accurate anyway. That kind of detail is the last thing I do, and has rather low priority.

BTW. Here´s a photo of the whole collection so far;

They all look excellent, but the curves on the hood of the firetruck are amazing!

Keep up the good work. :classic:

Wow, I´m on the front page!!! That´s so cool. Many thanks to the EuroBricks Team! (-and especially to Rick!)
Thanks to all for the nice comments!

Last years MegaMOC (2011) counted 20 vehicles (not including the two PF trains and 6 waggons), so I hope to go to 30 on this one, and there should be a single train also...
What more to say... The 14th vehicle is coming along nicely. But it´s absolutly HUGE, and will take some more time to finish...

All of these MOCs are superb so far.  :wub_drool:
I love the Delorean and Ecto-1.
Keep them coming. :thumbup:

My only criticism for this MOC is to use a different brick for the light on top.
I would use this one:
