[MOC] Aedelsten oldschool

Recommended Posts

Some days ago I posted one of my entries for the GWP contest on Lego ideas, the "Chevy Advance inspired vintage truck".
This car moc, the "Aedelsten deluxe", is one of my other two entries, again this time built in real bricks. Since the original colors of the digital contest entry (dark turquoise/white) aren't available, I changed them to white/medium azure.
Additionally I changed the attachment of the wheels and tried a new technique for white wall tires - of course with only original Lego.
As mentioned in my other post, the contest rules didn't allow third party IP. So this is no model of an existing 50s car, but of course it is inspired by some of them.

Lovely! Was just admiring this on the lego car blog. The colors are perfect for the theme.

I'm always up to functional elements (regarding doors) but it does look great! This color scheme works better in my opinion than the original one. Btw, those rims look nice with silver tiles on it,  could you share part number for rims?

The rims are old train tires and actually should be the white wall part of the white wall tires ;)

This is awesome! Are there building instructions somewhere?

I'm sorry, I didn't make any instructions for this moc.

At last I managed to also upload the pictures of the red Aedelsten.
Besides the main colors this version differs to the original design just by two parts: The tile on the hood and the bracket at the rear end (dark grey instead of red).
This version is a bit more simple then the white one since it features only regular wheels. At the other hand, this makes the car more stable, playable and it's much nearer to the original design that became grand prize winner on Lego Ideas.
