Hello Everyone,

I'm new to Eurobricks, so let me present my first ever LEGO car design, which is a 1:13 scale model of the iconic Land Rover Series II 88" from 1958. The design was made using Studio 2.0. Originally I wanted to build this car in an authentic Land Rover colour (LEGO colours sand blue/green or dark red/green), but many parts are unavailable, and therefore this remains a dream. Luckily, all parts are available in red, and therefore the model can be built. The model fits in the Creator Expert car series. It consists of 1477 parts, the doors and the hood can be opened. I designed some custom decals (front grill and dashboard) to capture some characteristic features of the car. Most of the chassis is built in an unusual way, which made possible to build a smooth curved lower edge. The canvas holding frame is easily removable, and you can find a simple engine under the hood.

That's a lot of SNOT! Very nice Indeed. Do you plan on making it in real life? 

Could you possibly show us a picture of how you constructed  the bonnet (hood), those angles look tricky....

This is incredibly well done!

Please build it in real bricks!

Thanks! I've just ordered the missing parts, so I hope that the car will be built in a few weeks.

Thanks! Yes, I'm planning to build it, I've just ordered the missing parts. I'm uploading some images about the construction of the bonnet soon.

That's great! I can hardly wait to see it built in real bricks!

So here are some rendered images about the construction of the bonnet.

I'm waiting for the last 10 pieces to finish the car in real life! I've fixed some minor constructional issues (illegal builds mostly). Despite this insane amount of S.N.O.T., the structural integrity of the car is excellent.

Clever construction there. Those 2x1 rounded plates come in very handy.

Looking forward to seeing it built in real life. :thumbup:

The car is done, this is how it looks like before the decals.

This is a truly outstanding job!
(Even though the steering wheel is on the wrong side :wink:)

Simply the most realistic LEGO car replica i've seen so far.

You really should consider uploading the file to Rebrickable. I'd definitely buy it.

Wow, that is absolutely beautifully done! Just love those old Defenders and this is an excellent representation. Well done! :thumbup:

It looks great! Even better in real life :wub:

Did you have to change any bits from the original digital design, or did it all work? I'd love to have a look at the Studio file.
