Hey @jorgeopesi, thats a good question. Its an area I usually gloss over in my builds. Some of the cars I've built recently I'm actually unable to find photos of how they open. Also, the hood area is so close to the suspension below, sometimes I struggle to find a proper looking connection around the dash area. In regards to the Ford GT, I couldn't find any photos at all of the hood. It looks a bit funny how I designed the hood on the Ford, but that was simply to turn on the battery. 

Even with this scale, there is still very limited room to design a proper hood with the lines I am trying to follow.Thanks for asking, I will try something new with the next car in those areas. Still learning with each build! :blush:

I found a pic and it seems that the Ford GT is easy to do :laugh: , I thought it would be as its big brothers but not, anyway I think that build realistic openable parts it is a challenge and makes a better MOC, if my F40 could be done reasonabily, any car can be done in a upper scale. If you continue to learn with each car you will have to give classes :wink: .

Yesterday I found another pic with a big trunk but surely I confused with the old one.

@jorgeopesi I actually have that exact Maisto die cast car. It's very cool, you should buy it!

@Lox Lego The LC is going to have the Porsche Wheels. It's going to be pretty big, but I can make it happen.

It is a nice car but I preffer this... I only build cars for take a rest between machines, sorry for the off-topic.

Hmm, I agree that openable trunk and hood is pretty important because those are functions that might be used even in a display only model. I think if you invest a little more time in your models (the world can't keep up with you anyway :wink:) than this should be a non issue.

Oh man lox, this is by far the best car you've done to date. I'm super happy seeing what goes into these cars that most people miss and I love the progress you bring to each build! You're killing it bro. :wub:

I like making machines too with EV3, and I never thought about making a construction crane before, but it would seem pretty fun.

Yeah, it does look like fun. Maybe I could combine the construction crane and the Ford GT to create the ultimate crossover build :laugh:

This is fantastic. When can we expect to see the instruction for this? Were you buying individual parts or were you able to make it with 42056? It seems like you need more than just 42056...

Hi @Enilder, Thorsten is 70% done the LDD file for this car. After that is the creation of the instructions, so I'm not too sure how long it might take. Maybe a month or so? I did use the Porsche set to build this car, but will require a few more parts for sure. LOTS of 3L beams and orange flex axles. I had picked up all my extra pieces through the "bricks and pieces"  section from Lego.com, (its usually cheapest and brand new) then pickup the remaining parts on Bricklink. I make a list of parts I'd like then look for the cheapest bricklink store to pick up all my parts.

Thank you for the response. Do you recall how many additional parts you had to get in addition to Porsche set? Trying to figure out how much it's going to take me to replicate your model. :)

Hey All!

The Ford GT instructions are complete. As soon as they are turned into a PDF they will be available on Rebrickable. Stay tuned....

A massive thanks to @Thorsten50 who has been working day and night to make this possible!

Wow that was quick! You sure are giving Thorsten a lot of work to do :laugh: Can't wait to see someone else build it. Now calm down with these amazing builds because now there are 4 cars of yours on my to-build list :tongue:

That's quite a collection!

 

Thank you Blakbird! The renders look fantastic, I can thank you and @Thorsten50 enough! 

Good news all, the instructions are complete and avail. on rebrickable!

It might be time to disassemble your 42056 Porsche Kit and build this orange replica of the 2017 Ford GT! (the porsche kit is 65% of this build)

Indeed it is!  It is very impressive the time frame all of these were built as well.

Or buy a bunch of orange parts again! :laugh:

I look forward to building this after the Veneno which I will be starting in the next few days after I catalogue the GT first.

Just thinking... if to buy all 6 cars having no lego at home - it will cost like almost few years old Peugeot 208 or something like that.. :cry_sad:
