[MOC] Aston Martin DB9 Volante

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Here is my latest model (it is again an exclusive commissioned model, sorry for that), an Aston Martin DB9 Volante:

It has the regular features:

- Independent suspension on all wheels
- Steering with Ackerman geometry and caster angle
- A 5+R manual gearbox
- A V12 fake engine
- Adjustable seats
- Openable doors, hood and bonnet

And as a special function it also has a convertible roof.

The mechanism inside is not automated, like I did on my Ferrari 458, but it does fold itself like the real thing. Which means that the top part of the roof folds in three parts on top of each other. It was a real puzzle to get that mechanism working, but I am very pleased with the end-result. The cover is custom made from a thin cloth.

Some more pictures:

I hope you like it :classic:

Leg godt

Fantastic model. Is it in 1:10?

Brilliant use of the katana's as front grille btw, very creative:thumbup:

Beautiful model! The details and curves are fantastic! The only thing I'd like to see is the roof folded and unfolded from raised up perspective. Great job though and keep up the awesome work!

Stunning creation Jeroen, but not your best. The hood and side lines are great. Only don't like the convertible top and the back of the car.:wink:

I remember writing that down and thinking to myself that I shouldn't do that, because these kind of statements always come back to bite you :laugh:

This is beautiful. There are supercars, and there are ones like this that are just so... perfect.

Any chance for a video?

I totally forgot to post the video: here you go:

The video has a bit higher perspective, is that good enough?

I still have some time to tinker with this one. Can you be more explicit on what you don't like about the roof and back?

Thanks everybody for all the positive and constructive comments

A barrocus car with romanic solutions, a perfect balance with not many pieces very well placed, congratulations. Most of times I can´t finish a MOC for myself I couldn´t never build a MOC for another. Sometimes I draw for people but with no time limit I do it when I want, but when I have a time limit, I can do nothing.

It looks amazing. :wub: Except that one little bit in the back where the chassis/other internals bright colors show. And that one lone flex axle where a spoiler should be.

Katanas. Never thought of them as a grille. Excellent parts use! :thumbup:

I must ask you to please stop making commissioned models... It's just not fair! :wink:

Holy Moly, you did it once again Jeroen! :thumbup:

How long did it take you to build?

Very nice work again - I instantly recognized the car when I saw the first picture :thumbup:! It seems your dear customer is a citizen of British Empire, same who ordered the recent Ferrari 458 :grin: ?

I love the creative front grill. The idea with the soft top is very original, although I think the overall solution is not very elegant (I couldn´t do better anyway :wink:). The side view reveals some disproportion - IMO the rear end could be a stud higher and look a bit bulkier. Anyway, fantastic and professionally executed job!
