Fabuland Cave Racer

Recommended Posts

Titles says it all. I'm sure this little MOC has been foreshadowed by some previous MOCs of mine. (Particularly: Fabuland MOCs and Cave Racers. :tongue: )

Looking foward to your feedback! :sweet:

Well, it rather looks like an mess of random parts mashed together. :tongue::wacko:

Not my cup of tea, sorry! :sadnew:

A wonderful racer, and the use of that axe, these pink books and of course the famous blue bucketĀ“s simply ingenious! Flower power on! :wub:

I'm afraid I have to echo this; it doesn't look especially Fabulandish, in particular the black parts. Furthermore, I don't really get this whole cave-racer thing; are they like scaled-down pod-racers? :wacko: That said, it's a great concept and could work well with a little tweaking :thumbup:

Those book-wings are amazing :wub:

Moko came up with the technique first, I think :wink:

So? Does it make it any worse? :tongue::wink:

Thank you very much ~ I'm glad you like it. :classic:

I totally disagree, though I appreciate your responses. Any constructive critism? That's what MOC Feedback is about. :tongue:

The Cave Racer fad was developed by Builder's Lounger Gambort, I didn't come up with the idea. There are certain requirments to a racer, please look here: http://www.flickr.com/groups/727410@N21/

As for the book idea, I didn't know Moko originated it. :tongue:

Suggestions for improvment appreciated! You need ideas to back your opinons, you know! :laugh::wink:

:blush: Sorry.

OK, my suggestions:

-Make the bley clips black for colour consistency; there's no other visible bley in the model

-Don't use the spear; it looks too violent for Fabuland. The axe is just passable as it hasn't got a sharp point.

-In the final picture the flower exhausts look like wheels, which is somewhat confusing. Use the chrome hooters here instead, to get a less jumbled top and more chrome on the undercarriage.

-The black parts between the upper and lower parts look a little random; perhaps some specialised Fabuland part here instead? Or if you've got a third chrome exhaust, which could lead into the back of the bucket...

-Instead of the black slopes on the front, perhaps use the teddy? I'm not sure what kind of connections it has on its back...

-Could the handle bars be moved forwards so they rest just behind the books, and the goat's body hangs between the chrome parts?

:thumbup:

No need to apologize! :wink:

Some excellent suggestions! Thanks for the input ~ I'm sure it'll look more consistent and better this way! :sweet:

The spear, unfortunately, is a required part. There are four required parts:

My Racers would look a lot different if it wasn't for the requirments. :wink:

I'm working on a Crystal Skull Racer ~ my Akator skellies just arrived, so that'll be completed and photographed probably tonight! :wink:

Sorry SirNadroj :cry_happy: , it's not the used parts, it's the colourscheme. Try less different colours. :wink:
