[C-MODEL] 42048 - Formula 1

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I made a C-Model for the 42048 Kart :) It features a Formula 1 with working direction (controlled by HOG) and a fake engine with two gears (which can be switched from the back). The hood can be opened. There are also two exhausts and a position light in the back. It is quite fun to play with and the steering radius is much better than the one of A-model :)

Here are a few pictures:

The HOG is in place of the steering wheel (small yellow part). Steering mechanism is similar to B-Model, but more flat (it is only 1 stud high).

The gear box is taken from A-Model and features the same ratios. The switch is on the back however (could not really put it in the cockpit :p ).

Any comment welcome ! Will post instructions on rebrickable as soon as possible.

Nice C model, I think it's the first time ever I see 42048 look good :wink:

Very cool!

Dont get the hate for the A model though, its the best go-kart we've ever had from lego, both in terms of looks and functions.

Nice work!

The wheels are a bit small, but that's the consequence of building a C-model :tongue:

You have captured the shape of an F1 car very well :thumbup:

Good C model :). I like F1 cars.

Will try to build this from my spare parts.

Rebrickable says I only miss the 4 wheel covers of 42048 set so this is buildable.

This looks great, you captured the look of a F1 perfectly. :thumbup: I can't wait to build it when you put it on Rebrickable.

Cool! Looks very much like an F1 car. Steering geometry looks a little strange (pivots are far from the wheel), but that's unavoidable when you use small wheels. Cockpit and rear wing are amazing :thumbup: .

Nice one! I've been seeing lots of great C models lately, this one included.

I agree with others that this formula is very good alternative model.

hi jyd80,

Is it true that you removed your MOC from Rebrickable?

I have it marked as a liked MOC and recently I can't find it anymore. I'd like to still have a copy of the instructions if possible.

Due to limited number and variety of parts you've made great job :thumbup:

I've registered on this website just to say thank you for your MOC and instructions. I bought the kart on my holiday and had much fun building it, but the B-Model was a big letdown. Yours is much better as it keeps all functions and looks great!

I've changed the model only slightly for aesthetic reasons. The main thing I wanted to change was the height of the rear spoiler as I feel it looks better when it's a little lower (although I had to cheat a bit there and now the back compartment won't fully open). I also slightly changed the steering to make it look more like a F1 steering wheel and to loose the protruding pin there. I also added the hose to the engine and slightly changed the seat. I have no idea if this interests you or anyone else, but I've added some small pictures of the changes.
