Belly Tank Speeder "No.6" - 42059 C-Model

Recommended Posts

42059 alternative model. Uses all parts from the set (exl. spares). No functions whatsoever except for inherited pull-back motor and quite pleasing looks. It showcases the "40 years" part nicely.
It's a rear-engined landspeed hot rod, inspired mostly by "belly tanks". Looks better with lower profile front tires borrowed from 42046 Getaway Racer (last pic). Bonus: can be used with minifigs!

LXF FILE - I might have missed something. The model SHOULD USE ALL PARTS from the by the A-model. If there are any leftovers, please inform me. The pink parts obviously represent the pull-back motor. The bit that sticks out in the front should of course be rotated as in the pictures - LDD won't allow you to do so.

Looks very good for a C-Model, nice idea to use all the parts from the A-Model, every time I build a C-model I always put the spare parts aside then manage to use them so I can't build the A-Model again without searching for the original parts. I bet this sill solve the problem :wink:

It's easy when you build C-Models of smaller sets :wink: Did the same with 42046's C-Model (henceforth it has those six "spikes" on both sides of the front segment):

I got this set today for my birthday and I didn't really care for the model so I made an C-model very familiar to that belly tank vehicle. First time attempting to put photos on here so mite be big. 

Was suppose to be a hot rod but I didn't have the right parts so it looks a little funny. It looks like a front of a weird car and the back of a hot rod. I'll make instructions and post them on rebrickable if any of you want.

To bad the set doesn't have any trans red lights it really needs them :(.

If you don't make it to work, let me know and I will resize them and set them here for you.

@The Vooduist Bricksafe allows you to choose a smaller photo. I think the smallest it allows is 800x600 which is fine to use here :classic:.

Thanks for the help! Here's the photos are Hopefully the correct size.
