This looks awesome! Very clean bodywork with very little gaps. Details in the engine bay and interior look great too.

Your first photo doesn't work for me. I googled the original car for reference, I suggest you add it to the first post.

Great use of the chain for the rotary engine, well done.

No, the first photo is the same as video preview... I reloaded it.

Thanks all for good words~

Very nice build, and instantly recognizable.

The bodywork flows very well, and I like the headlights. Imo you should consider swapping out all those blue and red pins for black ones, they are very visible in this model.

 

As the self-proclaimed "Rotary-Meister"(Initial D reference rigth there) of the LEGO world I have to do my job properly :laugh_hard::

This is not how the rotary engine  works.

The crankshaft  spins a lot faster than the rotors, but in the same direction. Like this:

I faced the same problem when I built my RX-7, and this is what I came up with. I am not saying that my design is perfect, but does work like the real thing:

I am not trying to badmouth your design, but stuff like this is triggering me :laugh_hard:

 

Anyways, thanks for sharing this awesome creation :classic:

I know that the engine works not properly, but it is impossible for me to do realistic kinematic in this scale =)

I watched your video before, you did a great job, but I wanted to create my own engine.

My design is proof that it is not impossible. But I do respect the work put into it, and I like the idea using chains

Excelent!!! Very good bodywork, I love what you did on the rear mudguards. Rotary engine is something fresh, even though it is not 100% accurate. Bravo! :thumbup:

A masterpiece! Already bought the instructions - they are amazing. I’m definitely building it next.

By the way, you should look into a replacement for panel 13 and 14 in orange. They’re crazy rare at the moment and you need two of each.

But that's precisely how many came with set 42056... I guess you need to own the Porsche and be willing to take it apart to build this model... :innocent2:

I know many people buy chinese brands, so I did a collage with some variations
I like white version, but there is no ogirinal LEGO white mudguard for the front wheels.

Fantastic job, instantly recognizable!! Well done Artemy!

And the last color swaps are eye candies, already have 10 mocs in orange so it would be great if we can built it in another color combo (even if we have to buy a few knockoff parts for their color).
