Looks pretty good. I really like the brickbuilt black line throughout the bodywork. The rear looks spot on. I’m not convinced by the front end and bonnet though. The front somehow looks off. I seems a stud too high. The bonnet’s curve in the real F40 is much more subtle. But then again there’s not really a better solution in this scale. That being said, it’s a great recreation of the F40 :thumbup:

IMO the front is too short and it has too much curves in the bodywork including the mudguards but it is still being a good F40. You can see in these pics from somebody I do not know that mine has big problems on the front too it would have to be a little longer and the angle is also bad, I like much your idea for the back glass.

Thanks. The front is indeed higher than it should be. I just wanted to use the new fender panels, so there is no other way.

I checked the proportions and it seems fine. Maybe it's because of the high front and also it looks shorter because the LEGO arches are longer than on the original car.

I think it is that yours is taller than the real one so it seems shorter, but it was at first sight, nice technique with the images, how do you do it?.

And the wheels on render images are lower, because of no weight for shocks. That's some Photoshop manipulations, superimposition + edit size + set transparency.

Thanks for sharing this.  Is there any chance you have close up photos or animations of the pop up lights?  I would be interested to see your solution.

I showed it in the video.

Quite nice indeed, the model is definitely recognizable and the motor system seems very well integrated. The only design element that would bother me is the engine bonnet on the back : the gray technic pins seems rather cheap, especially in front of the global quality of the model... I would not be able to give any better solution, sorry, and I guess you have looked into other possibilities already.

Another detail : the driving speed seems a little low for 2x L motors and the model's size. Which gear ratio have you set for the transmission?

Great work anyway, congratulations!

It's 12:28 in a 5x7 frame. I guess, putting other gears in this space will turn into instability and clicks.

Very nice build! The new wheel arches helps a lot I suppose. And why did you made the wheels with old rims? The new rims will improve the scrap radius, and this really means a lot since you have an RC car?

New rims were not available in gray.
