LDD Classic Car MODs from set numbers 10232,10200, 9484, 4728

Recommended Posts

This first model is a mash-up of the 2013 Palace Cinema (set number 10232) car and the car from 2002 Escape from Privet Drive. (set number 4728)

I added a new cabin roof with bigger windows and made the car in more colors. These variations include: Tan, Red, White, Black, Dark Bluish Gray.

15506438691_65c09d1d45_z.jpg

Each car has 4 seats and a steering wheel now too, but it still can't seat figures. Here we see the tan version.

Rear view. LDD file with all the colors included: http://www.mocpages....1413071878m.lxf

This second car model was inspired by the 2008 set 10200, Custom Car Garage. I made the red convertible into a brown coupe.

17040879046_f75a236a38_z.jpg

I have updated the model and LDD file because some parts of the old MOC were did not exist in the right colors, so I fixed them.

17040879006_7d7aebcdec_z.jpg

The rear features the tail lights and license plate. LDD file: http://www.mocpages....1428415439m.lxf

This car is based off the CARS 2 character "Acer" from set 9484, Red's Water Rescue, a 2012 set.

15304401129_16d7911092_z.jpg

It uses a mix of dark bluish gray and lime to give it the peeling paint look. the car is EXTREMELY tiny, being about the same size as the LEGO cars from the 1990's, except this model seats no mini-figures.

15468190836_535b91f172_z.jpg

This car was built in real life first, then recreated in LDD, which is a fairly rare occurrence for me. it is also build able without the dark bluish gray bricks for an all lime green color scheme fresh from the Factory floor. LDD file: http://www.mocpages....1412897086m.lxf

The inspiration for this next model (and basis for most of it's design) was the 2002 Harry Potter set 4728, Escape from Privet Drive.

14954411848_b555fe28a4_z.jpg

The car is build-able in five colors: Red, White Yellow, Black, and Medium Blue. Shown here is the medium blue version.

14954412857_d815367bc6_z.jpg

The rear view features an opening trunk, which is a much larger version of the one included in set 4728. LDD file for all the colors of this car: http://www.mocpages....1409862897m.lxf

This next car is a modified set version of the S.H.I.E.L.D. car from 76004. (Spider Man: Spider Cycle Chase)

15830046852_f98c4a88e6_z.jpg

I took out the hover wheels and removed the flick-fire launcher mechanism. I then grouped the parts I added to the model to make it easier to build. Personally, this car makes me think of a 1980's sports car.

15828491595_a1c5842675_z.jpg

The rear of the car features some neat partially covered wheels.

LDD file: http://www.mocpages....1416423876m.lxf

This model is a modified version of the 2014 set 76015, Dock Ock Truck Heist.

15103021697_e552358184_z.jpg

It was inspired by eurotrash48903 and his own MOD of the set to be 7 wide. I didn't change it quite as much as him, but I did follow his lead in several spot, such as shortening the frame by 2 studs and getting rid of the ridiculously oversized original wheels. The roof and front have been strengthened and a door added to the rear, as their was none before.

Here is a classic 1950's pickup truck:

15876035212_320950d4a6_z.jpg

Based on one half of the 2013 Holiday exclusive, this truck features several improvements over the original. It's cab features two seats instead of one, and the paint scheme has been changed to plain black.

15257037643_f9457fc4ae_z.jpg

You can also see the brake lights are located just under the tailgate.

1969 Volkswagen micro-bus

15874699351_a0cdc79cd5_z.jpg

This particular van is currently owned by the Collectible Mini figures (Series 7) Hippie, and his girlfriend.

15874699431_5da64a8186_z.jpg

Built and modified from a PDF of the LEGO Rock Band bus, but in red instead of orange.

LDD file: http://www.mocpages....1416926983m.lxf

1980's Yellow Taxicab

15254428324_ac2b910cb4_z.jpg

I recommend you listen to 1970's singer / songwriter Harry Chapin's songs "TAXI" & "SEQUEL" when building this model.

15689178818_78a9e98a60_z.jpg

Dual exhaust and fancy tail-lights feature on this model.

LDD file: http://www.mocpages....1416926658m.lxf

(Two of these are need for the roof sign: http://www.bricklink....asp?P=4865pb42 )

1950's Fire truck

15879684852_38f5daed11_z.jpg

I was inspired to build this by CARS set 9484, Red's Water Rescue.

I replaced the eyes with trans-black tiles and cheese slopes, while adding a grille where the mouth was. I also beefed up the rear, and removed the flick-fire missiles.

15693026080_f71ed331e3_z.jpg

The side of the truck features two hoses (one for each side) and the roof has a ladder. The sides also feature 4 hose hookups (that's the pearl gold 1x1 round studs) and two identical pump controls.

LDD file: http://www.mocpages....1416965118m.lxf

Modern Double deck bus (yellow)

15731213158_eba60f517d_z.jpg

Inspired by the design of the red bus in set 60026 (Town Square) and the yellow bus in set 7641 (City Corner), this double deck bus can seat 14 mini-figures, including the driver. It features a modular design, and has two doors: one at the front for entering, and one at the rear for exiting. (My brother Austin inspired this mod by giving me the idea for the double deck bus in yellow. He made one in red which he has not uploaded yet. Link to his mocpage: http://www.mocpages.com/home.php/94191 )

15732931997_7a4d0d0a93_z.jpg

The modular design makes figure placement a lot easier. Oh, and by the way: The yellow 1x2 tile at the front under the engine grille is supposed to be printed like this piece: http://www.bricklink...sp?P=3069bpb162

LDD file: http://www.mocpages....1417396825m.lxf

1960's Moving truck

16042026901_b45eb00af9_z.jpg

This model was originally set number 4000008, otherwise known as LEGO Inside Tour (LIT) Exclusive 2013 Edition – Villy Thomsen Truck. (link: http://www.bricklink...asp?S=4000008-1 ) I repainted it a more common-place black & gray instead of red, yellow, blue & light gray. It now features a enclosed cab, and better-looking side mirrors.

15424326843_c207cc1bbc_z.jpg

The top of the cargo compartment comes off allowing for access to the interior. The rear features a trailer hookup although no trailer is included in the LDD file.

1950's left-hand drive Double Deck bus (black & red)

15815688437_93ea03e51b_z.jpg

This was originally Scotnick's 7-studs-wide Bridgemaster Bus. I painted it in black and red for Brick Railway Systems and made into left hand drive for use in America. The bus also sports an enlarged upper deck, and a revised front windscreen.

15814168240_a8027e9087_z.jpg

The red stripes on the upper deck are destination boards. This model is 100% build-able.

LDD file: http://www.mocpages....1418417217m.lxf

1950's American Sedan

16041978391_0558a96caf_z.jpg

I was inspired to build this model after seeing the dark red half-track / truck in this set: http://brickset.com/...overcraft-Chase The model looked easy to duplicate, but it proved difficult to create an exact copy. I then decided to take it in a another direction and create a regular American 1950's car, complete with tail fins and two rows of seating.

15858158557_90a29d000c_z.jpg

The model features two rows of seating and opening doors, (a rarity on my models!) tail fins, and "double" tail lights. (I used a trans-red grille to create a nice effect.) The jumper plate on the rear bumper is supposed to represent a tailpipe and the white 1x2 tile is a license plate.

LDD file: http://www.mocpages....1418836486m.lxf

1970's Volkswagen Beetle

15731367380_372ee84416_z.jpg

Built from these old instructions by Whoward 69. (link: https://www.flickr.c...57624191463040/ ) I converted this 5 wide car to a hardtop and replaced the wide original wheels with a more Beetle-like solid disc. I also changed the color to yellow instead of green and added a license plate at the back.

15918667045_5b6a6a12c9_z.jpg

The car seats 1 mini figure. LDD file: http://www.mocpages....1417396431m.lxf

1960's Tow Truck

15577650013_d99cc2cc86_z.jpg

I have modified Tom Netherton's 1969 Chevy C10 Tow truck to suit my tastes. I modified the rear view mirrors, added a different style hook assembly, and removed the doors. (Here is the original model by Tom: https://www.flickr.c...57645284487353/ )

15575067544_c083c2a5e8_z.jpg

15992003319_2045f2040d_z.jpg

As an interesting side note, there are 27 1x2x2 trans-clear panels on the bus, along with two brick-built rear windows and the front windscreen. LDD file: http://www.mocpages....1420233991m.lxf

4-wide police car

16227290447_df958fa96d_z.jpg

Inspired by set World City set 7030, (Squad Car, link: http://www.bricklink...em.asp?S=7030-1 ) this car is a modern update to that 12 year old set. (man am I old!)

I built this model for my Brother, Austin, for use on his town.

16225801270_f337753f93_z.jpg

The interior can seat one figure and features a steering wheel. The rear bumper also features a licence plate.

LDD file: http://www.mocpages....1422742404m.lxf

Anglia 105E - Black

16649457166_167ce8ec5c_z.jpg

This car type is famous for being used in the movie "Harry Potter & the Chamber of Secrets". In real life, this car type was built from 1959 - 1968. The engine was a straight in-line four cylinder, and the body came in 2 door saloon, 3 door estate & 2 door panel van. I built the LEGO version in LEGO Digital Designer and real life.

16053082134_065874e620_z.jpg

The rear of the car features a non-opening trunk made to look like the original set 4728 model.

LDD file: http://www.mocpages....1425155138m.lxf

1950's delivery truck

16801779580_5e4233867d_z.jpg

This model was partially inspired by set 10222, Winter Village Post Office. I took the original model and enclosed the rear storage space and added a new front bumper / engine area.

16781844787_a5a70abe28_z.jpg

The model seats 1 mini-figure and has doors in the rear for storage.

LDD file: http://www.mocpages....1428181942m.lxf

US Postal van

15831610373_226829df47_z.jpg

This mail van was inspired by Dacta - Town set number 9333 (link: http://www.bricklink...em.asp?S=9333-1 ) The set features a bunch of vehicles, one of which is a red mail van, which I stretched out, changed the colors, and added letters to the side. (these are supposed to be signs, not actual letters) This model was also partially inspired by the United States Postal service vans I have in my area.

16451689625_d6510b364b_z.jpg

The rear features two tail lights and a license plate. The rear doors do open and there is space to hold stuff in there.

Bob's 1970's Nexus force - themed car

17332203591_c163d8c8e4_z.jpg

Since the last time I showed off this car, I relocated the rear-view mirrors, raised the front by a plate, and added this piece to the rear: http://www.bricklink...sp?P=15068pb004

16710129034_7eb11eeb84_z.jpg

Here is the rear of the car.

Benny's 1950's Classic Space - themed car

18509624906_5b5857a328_z.jpg

I was inspired to build this model after seeing the dark red half-track / truck in set 60071, Hovercraft Arrest. The model looked easy to duplicate, but it proved difficult to create an exact copy. I then decided to take it in a another direction and create a generic American 1950's car, which eventually got turned into this version of Benny's Classic Space themed automobile.

18348245518_a9b6585d2f_z.jpg

The model features a row of space-ship styled seats and "double" tail lights. (I used a trans-red grille to create a nice effect.) the white tile above the rear bumper is supposed to be Benny's license plate. This part goes on the sloped rear of the car: http://www.bricklink...sp?P=30363pb021

LDD file: http://www.mocpages....1434990478m.lxf

1930's streamlined car

19082086382_58a648d50c_z.jpg

This model was inspired by the recent announcement of the Super Man "Action Comics Number 1" exclusive 2015 LEGO set. I eyeballed the model and faithfully recreated it, but it was severely lacking in several areas so I enhanced it by extending the frame about two studs, and added bigger wheels. I then redid the bumper and passenger cabin, which required a new 4 x 8 roof, which is longer than the original 4 x 6 piece.

18465205704_f674605051_z.jpg

The rear features two tail-lights and a license plate. It can also seat one mini-figure in the drivers seat.

NOTE: The rear of the model actually features a 2 x 2 trans clear slope instead of the two 1 x 2 slopes seen here.

oooohhhhhh i like the vw, but a few notes...

1. it's not a 69', it would be a 67' or older

2. no vw bus had a grill on the back by the engine, it looks out of place. i would just do a license plate there.

3. i would ditch the rear orange signals, busses of that vintage had smaller tail lights and were not multicolored (in the US market at least)

4. i would do the framed split window for the windshield (like the green one on the bank truck) since pre 68' busses have a split windshield.

nit picking, but can't resist as i'm a bit of a VW fanatic as well.

Thanks for your comment. The model was built from some official LEGO instructions for the Rock Band video game, and then heavily backdated to become a less "extreme" version of a VW... it is not an exact replica, but it looks good enough for my purposes. You are welcome to upload a version that suits your tastes to this thread, if you want.

They just keep coming! They are all very nice. :classic:

Thank you!

I agree, it does look like a 2CV, but the original builder called it a Beetle, so that's what I'm sticking with.

Postal Van

15831610373_226829df47_z.jpg

This mail van was inspired by Dacta - Town set number 9333 (link: http://www.bricklink...em.asp?S=9333-1 ) The set features a bunch of vehicles, one of which is a red mail van, which I stretched out, changed the colors, and added letters to the side. (these are supposed to be signs, not actual letters) This model was also partially inspired by the United States Postal service vans I have in my area.

The rear features two tail lights and a license plate. The rear doors do open and there is space to hold stuff in there.

I have an update for the brown roadster and Benny's car:

Some parts of the old moc were did not exist in the right colors, so I fixed it.

This model was updated on 4/8/2015, and now features reinforced base, better rear-view mirrors, and trans-yellow headlights! I also fixed the hood, making it more rounded-looking. These changes were made to reflect the real life model.

Sorry for the bump, but here are some more vehicles:

Bob's 1970's Nexus force - themed car

17332203591_c163d8c8e4_z.jpg

Since the last time I showed off this car, I relocated the rear-view mirrors, raised the front by a plate, and added this piece to the rear: http://www.bricklink...sp?P=15068pb004

16710129034_7eb11eeb84_z.jpg

Here is the rear of the car.

Benny's 1950's Classic Space - themed automobile

18509624906_5b5857a328_z.jpg

I was inspired to build this model after seeing the dark red half-track / truck in set 60071, Hovercraft Arrest. The model looked easy to duplicate, but it proved difficult to create an exact copy. I then decided to take it in a another direction and create a generic American 1950's car, which eventually got turned into this version of Benny's Classic Space themed automobile.

18348245518_a9b6585d2f_z.jpg

The model features a row of space-ship styled seats and "double" tail lights. (I used a trans-red grille to create a nice effect.) the white tile above the rear bumper is supposed to be Benny's license plate. This part goes on the sloped rear of the car: http://www.bricklink...sp?P=30363pb021

1930's streamlined car

19082086382_58a648d50c_z.jpg

This model was inspired by the recent announcement of the Super Man "Action Comics Number 1" exclusive 2015 LEGO set. I eyeballed the model and faithfully recreated it, but it was severely lacking in several areas so I enhanced it by extending the frame about two studs, and added bigger wheels. I then redid the bumper and passenger cabin, which required a new 4 x 8 roof, which is longer than the original 4 x 6 piece.

18465205704_f674605051_z.jpg

The rear features two tail-lights and a license plate. It can also seat one mini-figure in the drivers seat.

NOTE: The rear of the model actually features a 2 x 2 trans clear slope instead of the two 1 x 2 slopes seen here.

Your mocs are very nice! The VW bus does look very cool in real bricks! But can I suggest to put on 'outlines on bricks'?
