Shanghai Chase - Modified Cars

Recommended Posts

I was looking around on Brickshelf and found these, modified cars from 7682 Shanghai Chase.

I looked around Eurobricks and couldn't find them, so I'm sorry if if this has already been posted.

A side shot of the car.

A rear right angle. The trunk looks a tad bit odd :sceptic:

A shot from up top. I like the roof a lot better than the original one, it was way to flimsy, plus Willie couldn't fit in very well.

Now on to the Sedan...

A side shot. The original one is no were near as good as this one. This guy put doors on and made the engine better, I don't care for the gray engine barrel though :thumbdown:

He also did a great job on the back, the rear area of the original one was very "blah" and plain.

An overview.

Overall, this guy did a great job fixing up the original Lego set models.

I hope this gives you some ideas on modifying Indy cars, Enjoy

Black car is almost like the Rolls-Royce my minifigures need. :classic:

I would love to see a Rolls-Royce car in some upcoming Indy sets.

Wow! They both look fantastic and a big improvement over the originals. The only thing I don't like is the grey barrel on the black car, though the opening doors are sweet!

Batbrick Away! :devil:

Ratshot, thanks for sharing, but please don't post enormous images directly into the forums - that first pic was 3000 pixels wide! :laugh: The site guidelines specify a maximum of 800.

I will leave the other 1000+ wide images as there's only about 5 but add a warning to your thread title.

Thanks!

Thanks for sharing, but I don't really like them :sceptic: The official set was better IMO.

There was some significant effort invested in these models, but I just do not like them.

Wow, these look great! The improved gangster car looks nearly perfect (I love the new front) :thumbup:

Nice find Ratshot!

I think they are okay, but personally I like the set versions better.
