Hello everyone,

I have built a model of one of Britains classic race cars, the Bentley 4.5l ‘Blower’, a project that was never actually approved by W.O Bentley (company founder) but nonetheless took part in the 1930 Le Mans 24hr race and French Grand Prix where it finished second behind a much more agile Bugatti type 35. Its claim to fame was not through racing victory but through its racing stories.

The model has working ‘worm and wheel’ steering and a removable bonnet to expose the 4.5 litre, 4-cylinder supercharged engine. Accuracy and realism was key right from the chassis frame and the parts were spray painted to give two new green colours. 

For more info and images please Click here to take a look at the project on Lego Ideas. 

Many thanks...

Had it not been for the wheels & tyres (I know there are no suitable alternatives at this scale) I really wouldn't have known at first glance that this wasn't a photo of the real thing.

Your attention to detail is commendable. Great work.
