This is my first try at making a tread and posting pictures, so I hope I do it right. :blush:

 It all started with me making a very oldschool 2015 Sauber car out of ancient lego I found in a tray in the basement.

Later lego started making real versions of F1 cars and I remade my 2015 Sauber.

Then during the 2018 season I started making all of the teams cars and I finally finished the project, right in time for the 2019 season to begin next week :sweet:

The cars were made with parts available to me and might not be the perfect match, but they are good enough for me.

All 10 cars

Mecedes. I made some changes mainly removing some green, which I feel are not "of the right shade"

Ferrari. Is the official one, I think.

Some cars are a bit dusty, it was a long season :blush: and some was done way before others.

I hope you will enjoy them.

Very nice cars, could recognise most of the teams right away! If you have Netflix, there is a great show about the 2018 season!

Hey, pretty cool! Even not being F1 fun - I love it! It's amazing how much better your models became since your first try!

Absolutely love this. Some of the most evocative memories of my childhood are the colour schemes of F1 cars. Perhaps you could do the 1980s next! A Benetton, a Brabham...

I'm not sure I have that many colors to pull of a 80's Benetton :laugh: I have actually made 3 more cars but they will be posted in the licensed section shortly (Lexcorp F1 team, Stark industries F1 team and Wayne Industies F1 team).

But a classic series might be fun. I was thinking of making Sennas Marlboro McLaren but was also thinking of doing a classic space blue and gray one :laugh:

Really good! I'm surprised how the Force India (or Racing Point... whatever it's called now) and McLaren lend themselves so well to Lego form. The only single thing I would point out is, I think that the Mercedes would be more accurate if built with Teal instead of Dark Green, as the official one was that colour as Teal hadn't yet made a comeback then. Super job! Plus, F1 is back again!

Huge improvement after 4 years :D. Look forward to seeing what will be after next 4 year if you rebuild once again :P

Thank you! Funny you should mention those two cars, they were the ones giving me the biggest headache :laugh: The McLaren one made me buy a second box of the Milano and a very obscure polybag from the arctic explorer line to be able to make, and the racing india....force point...pink one! forced me to order from bricks and peaces so I could finaly make it. It arrived just a week before the premiere of the new season, lucky me! :sweet:
