Again: Amazing stuff. And the colour combinations are great - part of what makes your cars so nice is that you build them in so many different colours. It really adds some spice to a scene (not that your dioramas need added spice, of course...)!

Wow, you're on a roll man!
The cars all look really great, don't mind if I borrow a few. :wink:

Cars #19 and #20 hits the road base-plates;

1950 Coca-Cola delivery van;

1959 Station wagon;

Posted Image

While I find most of the cars from that epoque stunningly beautiful, many different trends, styles and tastes emerged at the same time, and was -unfortunatly- sometimes mixed and blended by the desginers.
So let this car be a monument to the humongous desing-failures that was also done during these years; Wooden-style panels, two-tone body paint, white-wall tires, painted matching hubcaps, panoramic windscreen, partly covered rear wheels, huge metal bumpers, grotesque Texas-style longhorn ornament.
You name it; This car´s got it! Tasteless galore!
This is truly the car "Build for Homer".
-Or maybe what the "Wagon Queen Family Truckster" would have looked like 25 years earlier...

Thanks ´Tiger! -The van certainly will get a few stickers, but I need to accumulate more texts and signs, before I feed a whole sheet through the printer...

Hi all,

Here´s a couple of cars more for the project;

First off, a study in Bright Cyan; The HotRod from MegaMOC 2011 adapted to my small collection of pieces in this colour;

Car #23 (a pure fantasy vehicle);
Posted Image
Posted Image

Car #24 is another study en "Rare Colours", namely a Bright Pink convertible;

Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image

As these are some of the last cars for the proejct (only a couple of trucks reamins to be made), I´ve wanted to include some kind of constructive details;

Posted Image
The lousy clucthing-power of the pink pieces made it necessary to install the blue re-inforcement plate. The pink pieces (all original Lego) can hardly hold themselves together. TLC; What crap is this¿?

The next couple of photos shows the always-difficult front of the car; All my cars are done differently. This model in particular features a huge floating (or prisoner) part incoporated;
Posted Image
Posted Image
-The floating part is the lower-right one...

Lastly a couple of bye-bye pics;

Posted Image

Posted Image

Ciao!

Yeah, I was going to mention the windscreen! I didn't notice it when you first posted the picture on Flickr. That's a very neat solution.

Thanks L@go and lightningtiger! -Unfortunatly I can´t take credit for that technique. I saw it somewhere else, but can´t remember where (sorry).

L@go; Thanks for your always enthusiastic comments. My postings on Flickr are never exhaustive (because of the 200 pics limit), so you never really get to se all the details there...  :classic:

I love the fact that these cars sometimes look so deceptively simple and small! Posted Image
I also love spending a sunday afternoon, puzzling one together.

You are truly becoming a master at this, especially the pink convertible looks sweeheet!
Are you using the milky white tires for the whitewalls?
Why do you need TLC to make sets for you, all you really need is parts...be creative!

The build a frigate tutorail!
